I've been on Spark People on and off for a while. I'm 63 and lost about 40 pounds in the past 2 years by decreasing my carbs and snacking less (and Weight Watchers). I've recently gained back about 20 pounds so I'm back to finding motivation and bettering my health. I love to do activities with my dogs (two pugs). I also love to read and tap dance, and travel and hike. I am semi-retired and am trying to eat a mostly plant-based diet.
I'm no longer counting calories or points - I'm just trying to eat more plant-based foods when hungry and limiting my after-dinner snacking.
I am currently going through a divorce and so am dealing with the challenge of being newly single after a long marriage. I am very grateful for all of the support that I have recently received.

I'm eating a healthy diet of mostly plant-based foods and limited fats and increasing my water consumption

Personal Information:
I live in Pennsylvania and have two grown married children and two grandsons. I am currently going through an amicable divorce after a long marriage and am dealing with being newly single.
