Hi, my name is Rosy, and I'm 71. I joined SP about 2 weeks ago, and I'm loving it. Everyone is so friendly and supportive. I'm committing to living a healthier lifestyle in my "Golden" years. I would like to lose about 10 more pounds.

I love my computer. It never ceases to amaze me with everything I can do on it. I love logging on in the morning, and stepping out into the world.

emoticon Well,that's what we are here for. I have about 50 lbs to lose also. My daughter got me started with SparkPeople. The hardest part for me is making myself exercise. I have a bicycle that I've been riding around my yard.

Hi Retired Seniors! I just left Wisconsin last week and am now a full-time resident of Arizona. I wanted warm, sunny weather -- and I think this is the place to get it.

I don't know a lot about living a healthy lifestyle, but I think by joining SparkPeople it's a good start. I have 50 pounds to lose and I'll probably need the help of all of you to reach my goal.

Above all, don’t live with regrets. Approach life with perseverance and dedication to the things that matter most to you. Success is never easy. It remains up to you whether you will give up, or fight through the tough battles to earn whatever it is you want.

Welcome to our Team, Faye! I think you will find a LOT more MOTIVATION and SUPPORT on Spark People. It is a great site, and they say the more you post the better you will do with your new healthy lifestyle. I try not to think of this as a "diet" (I'm 70) I like to think of it as a healthy lifestyle, and have been on it since the very end of 2007. At our age it takes awhile to lose weight, but I think it's the healthy and best way to do it -- SLOWLY. Because then it stays off. It is because we are changing some of our bad habits into healthy ones!

Trying to find the silver lining in all the clouds!

Hello,
My name is Faye and I am 65 years old. I live in Georgia, hence my screen name “georgiagirl14”. I found the SparkPeople website by accident and I am so thrilled. I couldn't’t believe all the resources available to me and for free. I previously belonged to weight watchers and used their online website, which I liked very much. But with recently retiring and needing to watch my budget, I felt that I could no longer justify paying that monthly fee, plus to be honest, I wasn’t losing weight. All I seemed to have lost was my motivation.

I feel that I am not a very outgoing person, so I had not planned to join a team, but I am trying to break out of my shell and get past that shyness. All the comments that I have read from members of this team, make me feel good about joining. You all seem to be very kind and understanding. My goal is to lose weight (about 50lbs) and enjoy life.
