It is past time for me to update my page. First confession-- I am not the best "social media" person around. I created a facebook page years ago & it does not have a photo & I never post. lol. Oh well. But I am fairly active on SP & it is on my short list of internet activities that I do regularly. I love my friends on SP!

I turned 60 last year & had not met my goals, even gained back some I had lost. The past 5 months I have lost nearly 10 lbs & am getting closer to my goal, maybe another 5 lbs. BUT, I keep finding this pesky 2-3 lbs & then loose it, gain it back, etc, etc. SO, my goal currently is to stabilize then reassess how much more I want to lose. I know you know what I mean about maintaining.... half the battle.

I am resuming exercise gradually after nearly a year of not doing any or very little. Tracking exercise & nutrition helps keep me aware of slacking off.
For now, this will do. ; )

    Thanks, Gail! Yes, there is a lot to take care of here. My DH is not good with yard work, he doesn't even think about attending to the details, so I do it. He does not use the edger, and it is too heavy for me, so I use the weed killer instead.

    We have a long frontage on our road, and I spray all under the pipe fence along the frontage, and then, around the perimeter of our 3 acre yard! I can't stand to see the weeds growing up around the buildings or under the fences, so I keep after that all year.

    Once summer comes, though, it is so dry there is not a lot to do, but Spring makes up for it! I do so enjoy it all when it is done! So, it is a large job but one that gives me a lot of satisfaction!

    Thanks for all your support on my feed! I really appreciate you........ emoticon

    Yes, it is nice that we are all close on Spark People! I have done some studying about working and camping in other states (the WORKAMP program) and found that Tennessee is a possibility. We LOVED the Smokey Mountains when we were there last fall. Everyone at the park was great, too! emoticon
