good luck with your Dad, I have recently been caregiver to both my Mother and my wife, they both had dementia. One thing helped with my Mom, as she began an old familiar story, if I questioned her she could often expand on it. As the end got closer my wife hd no verbal skills at all. Take advantage of any support in your community, you will need it. If you have time check into before he moves in. Bob

Hi I'm new to the group. I'm 72. I understand what your saying about being at the computer. I found myself on the computer way to much. What I did I schedule out time for myself. So for about 2 hours I'm on the computer. I give myself more time at night or what ever time, as a reward. Such as, if I track my food, if I exercise, or I cook dinner. If I do something that I don't really have pleasure in, I give myself a reward. Don't get me wrong I love to exercise and cook as well, but sometimes I'm not in the mood to do anything. Oh and sometimes I roll my reward over to the next day. When this happens I go to sleep with a smile on face.

Tip to reduce weight: First turn your head to the right and then turn it to the left. Repeat this exercise every time you are offered something to eat.

I just turned 71 a few days ago. I find myself sitting at the computer too much. I see and feel the need to get up and move more. I'm hoping to be inspired by active 70+ individuals.

I was an active Sparkperson a while ago, but I can't even find my previous page so it's a whole new start for me. emoticon

Hi everyone
My name is Sheila and I live the North West of England. I will be 70 in September and having an extension built starting the 1st week in August. When it's done my Dad (who is 95 in July and has dementia) will be moving in with me. I joined Sparkpeople in 2009 but haven't been active since 2012. I now need some motivation and hope to get some here.

Hi,
I have just returned to sparks after about 3 yrs. I have had a lot of health problems that always seem to side track me. This time I plan on sticking no matter what.

I am 70 years old. I lead a pretty busy life, but I like it that way. I live with my daughter so I have plenty of free time. I take watercolor paint lessons, do Tai Chi, crochet, read. Go to the movies often, and love to travel!

Find the picture on your computer and use your viewer to rotate to correct position and then save it as a name or over the original. If you lost the original in your computer crash, save the picture on your profile to computer and then do the above and re-upload the correct rotation. Hope that helps.

Hello. This is my first year in Spark and until recently, I was on another team of people over 70. Last week my computer went through a crisis and although it was repaired, I have lost a number of things including however I kept in contact with that group. The worst part of the computer breakdown was that I lost my email address book and have to start over on that.

Since joining Spark, I have learned a lot and become healthier, though my weight has not changed much other than an up and down pulsation within a 5 pound range. Although one long range goal is to lose about 30 pounds, there are other areas that also need improvement and I am working mostly on those.

Currently I am 76 years old, live in SW Florida and enjoy my life for the most part. I share a house with my partner, who is 89, and her daughter, who helps out in exchange for sharing our home. We have a dog, Bingo, who is a half Yorkie and half Maltese, and a cat named Sanibelle. My hobbies are gardening, reading, playing cards and games, and learning to cook new things. Last week I made BBQ pork ribs for the first time--one batch with an Australian recipe and one American. The Australian batch was wonderful.



Julie

YOU are entirely up to YOU

What are you doing to make today
the healthiest day of your life??????

Hi all:
Happy Mother's Day.

Leona introduced me to this team. I am in my early 70's and bumbling forward at this point. Still working full -time and that takes all of my energy. I am a widow for 13 years with 1 son in his 40's no grandchildren. I have RA and OA my knees are shot and I am really afraid to have surgery so I struggle forward but that limits my walking and getting around a lot.
I do Tai Chi at home to at least do something daily. I love to garden have all my veggies going now. Originally from Scotland but been in New England for the past 49 years.
Looking forward to getting to know all of you.

Jeannie

Hi:

I am a few weeks new to SparkPeople.
I had double bi pass open heart surgery 4 months ago and I would like to lose some weight.
I am doing good going to cardiac rehab 3 times a week and feel it will be a while before I feel normal again.
I am very tired these past two weeks because my husband had a hip replacement and I am caring for him and going to my rehab. It's a little too much because I feel wiped out. Hopefully he will be back to normal soon.

I have stoped eating meat and chicken and giving vegetarian a try. Since I started I have been losing a pound a day. So I feel happy. I would like to lose about 40 pounds.

Nice to be in ther age group.

I am from Ireland but have lived in the USA since 1962. We have a home in my home town in Ireland and travel there every summer from May thru October. This year may have to wait.

Pris, I see that you and I are of a similar weight. I'm also in my 70's and my goal is to lose 40 pounds. I am 5' 4".

I'm sad to hear of your dear husband's illness and passing. Glad you can be with other seniors, now. Would you like to friend me? I am brand new and only have one friend, Spark Guy.

My post here is very old as my whole life has changed since then. I am 73 almost 74 or in October will be. I lost my husband TO vascular dementia June 3, 2016 after 55 years or one week short of 56 years of marriage. I was his full time caregiver till the last three months then home heath and hospice came in to help.

I wasn't able to go to Curves or anywhere else if I couldn't find someone to stay with him which wasn't often. I am now getting back to socializing at senior citizens and Tops but can't Curves with reduced with a reduced income. So am starting to use my fitbi and get back to work on trying to get me healthier. I can start over again and hope this time I have time to stick with it.

Hi there,

I am Sairah Khan from India. I am 80 and obese.My wake up call happened this Feb,when I was hospitalised for irregular heart beat. I also have osteoarthritis, use a cane to walk so eating healthy is my only option to lose weight as I can do limited exercises. I need to lose 93 lbs....So look forward to this journey here for inspiration & ideas

If you think you can you definitely can

Hello all,

Nice to have new members. Please post often. emoticon

The trees are a month ahead of last year in getting their leaves. I like Spring the most as it means winter is gone. In West Texas, we always had flowers. emoticon

I went to the prayer shawl group meeting yesterday and it is nice to get away. Father stopped in to say hello; the place we meet is near the Church. Such nice friendly ladies and many go for the get together. I am pleased with my shawl and will continue to do at least 4 rows a day. emoticon

I cleaned out a couple of boxes and will give some nice clothes to Goodwill. I will not wear them again and it is easier for me to do it then the kids someday.

We may have a touch of rain today. emoticon

To those who are still having some health problems- emoticon

Take care.

Hi Everyone, Hope your weather is as great as ours is in southern Illinois. I just wish we could keep this weather all year and skip winter and summer ;) Fall is my favorite and it is great. Yesterday my daughter redid my flower beds for me she has a gas small tiller you use for flower beds and it looks so good now with the dirt in much better shape and some new mums and hostas in the shady bed along with some grape hyiachiths in between mums also one lily in the middle not sure where it came from but it is pretty.

I went out today and went to the gym for exercise I go every Monday, Wednesday and Friday started back again after COPD got to severe stage to keep from getting worse and get better if I can. A funny thing happened ot me today though I have to wear oxygen or am supposed to for activitys since I saw a lung specialist last month. My oxygen drops to 88 when walking 250 feet. The funny thing is today I put it on at Curves but forgot to turn it on which I didn't find out till after I had done two rounds LOL. I wondered why I was sweating and shorter of breath but the thing is I I made it anyway ;). Then went to the hospital for an allergy shot like usual used the o2 there but still am surprised I made it through at Curves. Running a couple of errands after lunch came home with Taco Bell for hubby and me before doing them. Anyone else have COPD or go to Curves? Anyone from my area on here?

Hi Marianna: I can sympathize with you and the Windows 8. I threatened to throw it out the window today only to find out it was operator error and now the computer. It freezes on me all the time and I keep saying a new computer should not do this. It's getting a little easier. Sometimes I just have to shut down, reboot and start over again to make it work. My bible study last night was on patience which I lack. Got to work on that too. Good luck.

Hi: I am a returning member of Spark People. Keep stopping for some reason but I am going to follow through this time. I am 76 and at this age it is hard to stay on a diet. Just do your best and when you veer off for some reason, give yourself a good talk and get right back on the diet. Don't beat yourself up over a mistake in what you are eating...just back off the next day and stay closer to the diet. Watch portions more than anyhthing.

Hi, I am 71 going to be 72 soon though October 1st. Anyway I have been married to the same man for 54 years now marrying at 17. We have three grown children, ten grandchildren and three great grands. My husband has dementia now and I am his caregiver. He sleeps a lot now and can't carry on conversations at times or most of the time so it gets a little lonesome. We have a little mixed Australian and Silkie Terrier mix female furbaby who is my companion, and his and great company to me during this time where I stay home so much. I do go out once a month to a Hospital Auxiliary Luncheon, and every Monday night to TOPS and am on here losing weight but very slowly need to step it up if I can. Two of our kids live in town one in Michigan. Older son was just here and mowed the yard for us and does that every week as my husband finally gave up on that he couldn't mow in less then three days what takes our son a half and hour or so with his mower. Thankful he does this for us weekly now. Our only daughter is in town and has to help when I go to the hospital with lung infections and asthma problems. She helps with her dad and cooks for us when I come home. Sorry this is so long but wanting to introduce myself and say glad to be here. I am trying ot decide if I can go back to Curves 3 to 5 days a week I was doing 5 days a week a year ago when I started with lung infections every month and oxygen and antibiotics at those times. I have also thought of a recumbent bike I think it is called to get for home instead if my son would put it together for me hate to ask him but need to get healthier and stay that way to take care of my husband. Anyone here have certain exercises they use?? I used the recumbent bike and a treadmill and stuff at Physical Therapy with back problems once so thought of that. Anyway hi everyone.

Hi, Friends!
I'm back! Had computer problems for over two weeks, and had to buy a new one - Windows 8 - which I don't know how to use yet. Still dealing with my sensitive eyes, and the warmer weather does not help, but THIS TOO SHALL PASS. My son in Virginia has to have three neck disks replaced, and he is having surgery later this month. Please pray for him. WHEN IT RAINS, IT POURS!

I wish you all a Happy Summer, and please remember that I pray for all of you and I wish you all the best.

Hi, everyone...I am Janet, from Illinois, a shorty (4'8+). I turned 70 in December, have been a member of SparkPeople since 2006, but have been more consistent over the last 6-8 months. I was glad to find this team!

I think spring has finally arrived in Massachusetts along the mighty Merrimack River. We seemed to have a very long winter and we were so longing of spring to arrive.

I used to belong to this team. I had been looking for Lee for a long time and thought she belonged to another 70's team
I invite you who don't know me to go to my Spark Page and learn about me.

Hello All!

I was glad to find 'Anyone over 70' !

I'm 71 years old and will be 72 in April. I would like to lose at least 35 pounds this year. At first I was thinking 50 but I don't want the pressure that I always have to go through.

I live in Oregon and love it here!

It's nice to find others my age, too.

A big HUG to everyone!!

Marilyn

Hi, just joined Spark People & I am so glad to see an over 70 forum. I think this is going to be a great motivator for me! Love all the gadgets & gidgets that you can access. I do have to learn how to do it all first. Will be fun learning while I'm losing 40+ pounds! I am a 75 year old retired widow & want to get active! Right now I'm sitting with an ice pack on my knee--too eager & jumped into exercise too fast. So now, while I sit here I'm learning & reading. So onward & downward it is!

We are having a bit of a cold spell here along the mighty Icy Merrimack River. It is a minus three on the thermometer this Saturday morning.

Between the shoveling and the snow blowing yesterday I got over two hours of exercise. Had to come in just to warm up the hands a few times. A change of warm gloves and it was back out I go into the cold and blowing snow.

Project today is to get the one to two feet of snow off the vehicles in the driveway and we do not want all that snow in the driveway.

Well good morning and welcome to the second day of the new year 2014. I got to get into snow removal mode. It started snowing her early this Thursday morning and it is not supposed to stop until sometime Friday afternoon. My shovels are ready. My snow blower is gassed up and ready for the pull of the starter rope. I did 15 minutes on the stationary bike so far this morning.

Yeah I am so excited to join this team and also that I saw 2 Asians here.
Well my DGGD introduced me to SP a week ago and I have got onto a more serious diet & Physio therapy regimen. I am an 85 year old great-great-grand mom, with severe mobility issues one due to being Arthritic & secondly my extra kilos that I have piled up after a knee replacement 5 yrs ago has compounded my problems. I do use a walking stick but also need a caregiver to hold me when I walk even at home. Living in a joint family helps but still nothing like managing on your own

Hi. I've been Sparking since May but never found my way to this group. I have subscribed to the SparkCoach.
I have one major health issue in that back in 2006 I had spinal surgery which seemed successful for a while but now I am in constant pain. Don't get m wrong, I have learned to deal with it with the help of Ibuprofen. As I live in Thailand it is impossible to get most of the opiate pain killers like Vicodan and Oxycontin. They are illegal even with a prescription. The only one that is available is morphine itself but I don't like to deal with the side effects.
In the part of Thailand that I live which is central Thailand about 400 km north of Bangkok. I live in a small village where I have no access to a health club so, I wound up building a gym at home that includes a treadmill, reclining stationary bicycle, a multi-purpose cable strength machine and resistance bands as well as some peripheral equipment. All the equipment is top of the line home equipment.
My balance leaves something to be desired but I just bought a bicycle. I was an avid bike rider before and I am determined to "learn" again so I can get some outdoor exercise.
Well, now you know pretty much all about me.

Hello
I have been a member for a few years lost and gained. Hoping to get back on track. I am soon to be 72. Do we ever become old and wise enough to make the right choices. I hope so.
My short term goal at this time is to enjoy the coming holidays but to see the scale drop a few lbs. Long term goal, get off of the up and down Merry-go-round I have been on most of my life while still enjoying ride. emoticon

I never would have thought I would still be struggling to loose weight at 71. I am an active woman and eat healthy but still have some bad habits that have caught up with me. I joined SP several years ago and did loose some weight. Then I quit. In 2012 I had a big back surgery and I was forced to be more inactive than usual. I have not gotten back to speed yet.

My name is Marilyn and I live in Oregon.

I joined Weight Watchers two weeks ago tomorrow. I need to lose at least 50 pounds so now my journey has begun. I have been a member of SP for a few years but it has been an off and on relationship!

I'm on a mission to get healthy and would like to travel on my journey with others!

Good evening! I have been a member about three years this coming March and I think I became a member of the Over 70 Team at about that same time. I have not chatted so much but I visit the Huddle and sign in and I post my SPARK SPINS in the morning and that is about it. I usually get up at 4:30 a.ml and complete 60 fitness minutes by 6:30 a.m. each day and this works for me. I hope everyone is doing fine and meeting their daily goals that they have set for themselves.
