Thanks, Pat. Funny you should say that, but I just spent weekend with friends up in New Glarus at Oktoberfest & one couple also has a place up in Washburn, where I went last summer. We REALLY love Wisconsin, even if we ARE currently relegated to Illinois! emoticon

Hi, all. Been a member of Sp almost 4 years & even been a member of THIS group a year or two, but have been VERY inactive, but I hope to change that.
Still playing around with goal weight......near, but not attained.
Looking forward to getting to know others in the group.
Anybody else in IL or southern WI?

Hi 50+ Females (I definitely fit into that category), Fit (working on it) Feeling Fabulous (most of the time!). I'm Janet Little. I am a retired school teacher, wife, mother of 3 and grandmother of 5. I'd like to be around to meet my great grandchildren, too.

My new part-time job is working in a candy store a couple of days a week. That's a challenge for me because I can sample all I want. I love Albanese candy, but I'm in my second week sample-free!

Weight has been an issue all of my adult life. I am a four-time Weight Watcher lifetime member. Unfortunately those lifetimes have been very short! I am really liking the freedom to choose foods that I want to eat being careful to log them in and to track the calories as I go. Too bad I didn't try SparkPeople a long time ago, but maybe this is just the right time for me.

Thanks for letting me check into your pages and enjoy your postings.

Hi, I'd love to join you ladies, though not yet fit and fabulous - hoping to get there with your help!
I am 53 though, so 1 out of 3 ain't too bad! I have 2 children of 15 and 17 and I want to stay young for them as well as for me. My name is Tricia and I live in Cheshire, England, working from home running a national car airconditioning business. Too much sitting on my big butt!

I'll be checking out the forum and hope to get to know some of you; looks like fun!

I am so 50+ I just turned 60. I love Spark because it keeps me motivated. I find it a little demoralizing because it takes longer than it used to for me to drop a few pounds. But at least I don't plan to be wearing a bikini or entering any wet Tshirt contests. I just want my clothes to fit. I have been walking for my cardio exercise, with an occasional bike ride. My family is very supportive, so I am lucky.

Hi Fabulous Females, I'm Karol from Lansing, Michigan! I joined Sparkpeople October 2010 and have lost 35.8 #. From August 2010 to October I lost 10# for a grand total of 45 #. I have another 17# to go to reach the goal I have set for myself. I will decide at that time if I go down more. I know a few in this group already and look forward to participating as much as I can. Oh, BTW,,, I hope it's ok that I'm 62 but feel like I'm 40 so figure I should fit right in! LOL I'm retired and I'm trying to figure out how I had time to work! emoticon Ok,,,,, girls,,,, I'm ready,,,,,,
Are YOU? emoticon

Hello Everyone!

My name is Rose & I live in Naples, Florida...& I do believe I know several of the members here already! I'm 58 years old, & I've been on SparkPeople now for about 10 months! I've lost 66 lbs since February 2010 (11 lbs on my own before beginning SP in August 2010). I have only 9 lbs left to reach the weight goal I set! I track food & fitness everyday! I maintain 90 min of cardio daily & perform ST 3x weekly. I've recently begun attending exercise classes at the Y & I'm enjoying them immensely!

I am looking forward to meeting you all & participating as much as I can! Thanks for having me! Let the games begin! emoticon

Well hello all you wonderful inspiring Sparkpeople! I'm Gail from Omaha Nebraska. This is another restart for me and it will be my last. I've been focusing on what I truely want out of life. Here I am almost 51 years old and I still dont know what I wanna be when I grow up. lol But, I'm working at it. I find my joy in all kinds of things, of course among those are, eating. But instead of staying focused on the problem, I am now focusing on the solution. Its all between the ears. Glad to be here, Thanks

Do not regret growing older, it is a privilege denied to many.

Fear is a liar.

I can change, I can be positive, I can be strong, I can be fit, I can be more patient, I can be better than yesterday, I can do anything I set my mind to........

I joined this team as it looked like a good one to have at least age-related challenges in common!

I'm Ann. I'm 56 and less than 3 pounds from my goal weight. I'm basically fit and would like to continue without injury. I joined SP 12/30/2009 after a year from hell got me off track from my healthy habits. I ended up putting on over 50 pounds and stopped exercising. I lost the first 30 over 2010, and the last 20 this year. Running has become my exercise of choice, but I can't do it every day without injury so I also bike & swim.

Since 2006, I've lived in Los Angeles. I moved back to California after moving away in 1959. I've lived in 11 states, so far.

I'm married to my best friend (now you know how corny I am); we got married in June 2005. We are also very blessed that all four of my & my husband's parents are still living.
I have two grown children daughter (34) and son (31) and daughter-in-law & 9yo grand daughter. My children's dad died in 1999 of cancer.

We have two old dogs--both rescues (sled-dog mix male, 14 yo, Basenji female, 11yo).

I spend most of my working days on my behind in front of a computer. So of course my passion is spending time moving outdoors, running or bicycling, mostly. Hiking, swimming, horseback riding, snowshoeing, or snorkeling when I have the opportunity.

If you really want more information than this, I've written blogs over the last six months as part of another SP team's challenges.

Hi Ladies - My name is Nancy Johnson and I'm 58 years old. I live in Forest Park and have (very) recently become single again. I have been on Sparkspeople on and off for several years, but I have been seriously using the site for about the last month. I have a cocker spanial, 3 grown sons (two of them live very close to me) but no grandkids as of yet. I left teaching after 18 years last fall and have been working as a sitter for on a part-time basis. Right now I am looking for a full-time position. I love to exercise, especially outside. I'm a big walker but also swim, bike and use the elliptical. I have just gotten back into my strength-building routine. I'm looking forward to this site for some socializing and and upbeat mood. Thanks emoticon

Hello everyone, I am excited to learn about this new team and make new friendships. I joined Spark last April but didnít really do anything until January. Since then I have started having a new healthy life (I refuse to call it a diet because as I told my daughter I have failed every diet but have succeeded at life)- and lost 25 pounds. I look forward to getting to know everyone.

Hello, Everyone!

I'm Amy, from southeastern PA. I joined the team a little while ago, but didn't take the time to write posts, maybe because I didn't quite feel fit and fabulous yet! LOL I'm working on my fitness now though. I'm determined to get more exercise in each day. I have been very sporadic so far. Working out and getting enough sleep each night have been my biggest challenges.

I joined SP way back in 2006, but didn't get really involved, just dabbled here and there and then was off completely for a couple years. But then this January I came back full force, and I've lost 25 pounds since then, due mostly from eating low carb and also having such great support from SparkTeams and SparkFriends. I am 52 and a half years old (just "celebrated" my half birthday!) You notice half birthdays when you teach little kids. I have taught second grade for 25 years (3 years in first grade prior to that) and I hope to retire early at 55, so I can enjoy traveling around the US with my dh in our RV (he's 9 years older than me.) I love the kids, but not so much my commute (almost an hour each way,) and definitely not all the paperwork or all the stress in teaching these days.

I look forward to getting to know all of you. I recognize a number of members from the RV Enthusiasts team, so that will make it a little easier to start chatting. I will try my best to post in the daily thread. Until school is out in late June though, I may not be as active as I will be during summer vacation!

Well, I'm off for a walk, since the weather is so nice today (mid 50's.) Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

Hello!
My name is Cary and I'm 52 years old. I've been a SparkPeople member off and on for a number of years. I seem to switch between SP and Weight Watchers. Both are good. It seems the closer I get to my goal weight the faster the incline back to my fat weight. In the past I haven't utilized the message boards because I don't want to bother anyone. This time I'll see if it helps me stick with it.

hmm I am confused. Thought I had joined this team before I got sick and it turns out I had "to join" all over again!

I am 56 soon to be a year older.

I have been sparking for way long and am still on my journey to lose because I am learning to lose around thyroid issues. Seems exercise and calorie control work well for me though - just have to get it done.

I have been off spark for 8 months due to severe back pain and aam just getting back after surgery. Look forward to enjoying the team!

Strive to be the best you. Remember those who are in your life for a minute, an hour or forever all need your attention and smile.

Hi Teresa

I took up running in my late 40's and am continuing to do so. Not fast, but steady. I have completed 3 half-marathons so far. If you ease into running and have proper shoes, you should remain injury free.

There are many websites and books to help the novice runner. I like Marathoning for Mortals by John "the Penguin" Bingham. He believes in running with walking intervals (I do too!)...or another way to look at it is walking with running intervals...LOL. I think he also wrote Running for Mortals. Jeff Galloway has a good run-walk program too.

I would suggest you start with a good couch-to-5K program of walking with increasingly longer running intervals. It is a fantastic way to start running without incurring an injury.
Hope this helps.

Hello Ladies! I'm Teresa, 51, happily married after a few false starts. Loving SPARK, practicing patience and kindness towards myself. Have lost 9 of the 26 I'd like to lose and am stuck, cannot get to 10 for anything.
I have question about running. Anyone of you beautiful ladies out there take up running in your 50s? I am concerned about wrecking my currently healthy joints and knees but am desperate for some hard core calorie burning activities to get this body's attention.

Greetings everyone!

I've been looking for a team just like this one for a couple of weeks now - glad to have found you!

I'm from Ontario, Canada...51 years old...and newly married. Work full-time as a lab manager and am hoping to start an online MBA part-time in September.

Changing my lifestyle via Spark People so I have the energy to do all that I want to do with life, and that's a tall order. I intend to live a long, active, fun life and go out with a full dayplanner.

Hi, folks!

I just joined this team. I'm 50+, Female, Fabulous and (much more) Fit (than ever). I can't yet say I'm "fit" but the difference between now and 14 months ago is astonishing. When I started SparkPeople on 10/29/09, I couldn't walk up a flight of steps without hoisting myself up with the banister, stepping on each step with both feet before going to the next, and breathing hard. Now, I don't exactly run the steps, but I do them in a sprightly manner with no banister (most of the time) and no heavy breathing. When I started, I hadn't taken a walk outside in several years; now I can walk miles. When I started, I hadn't biked in years; now I bike when the climate permits, and go to spin class in the winter. And so on.

And I just move so much more easily and confidently. So, yes . . . I'm 50+, Female, Fit(ter) and FABULOUS!

And glad to be here.

Hi Everyone,
I am a little late with introducing myself, so hi. I have been with Sparkpeople for many years and still trying to lose the last 10. I love this site and try to remain active as much as I can. I love to be outdoors, especially walking and hiking. I am trying to get back into tracking my food full time so I can get back to my late summer and fall weight. I have no problem tracking my exercise, as you can see on my tracking page. So here I am working on food goals at this time. Thanks for the words of welcome on my sparkpage! It is nice to meet everyone on this team. emoticon
