I have been on Spark since January 8, 2017. I started at age 69 with hopes to reach my goal weight by my 70th birthday which was July 13th.

I didn't reach my goal within my time frame but I never gave up. I finally reached my 40 pounds weight loss and have been on maintenance.

I have learned many new habits. I no longer drink diet pop aka soda, I drink 8 plus glasses of water daily, exercise daily, I try to eat more fruits and veggies, and I am always working on my sweet tooth.

Life is good and it is always great to hear people say how great I look when they haven't seen me for awhile.

Yes, I get off track but not for long. I never give up on my healthy and fit lifestyle. It is so worth it.

Member Since: 1/8/2017

Fitness Minutes: 94,653

My Goals:
Lose 5 pounds, get back on my maintenance track with my eating, having patience in all that I say and do.

Well, today is 6/8/2020 and now I have 11 pounds that I want to lose. This pandemic which has us staying home hasn't helped. I am trying to let go of my cravings for sweets which is an ongoing goal. I am exercising 6 days a week and keep looking for new things to do. Trying to eat more veggies daily, I do ok on fruits. Today I decided to cut down on carbs. I seem to have an issue when I eat too many carbs. Coffee and 8 plus cups of water are all I drink. I will keep moving forward and never give up!

My Program:
Eat a healthy breakfast, drink 8 plus glasses of water, exercise daily, and log everything I eat and drink!

    Don't think about what can happen in a month. Don't think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the next 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get closer to where you want to be.

    Hi there!

    To spin for team points, try this link:

    If it doesn't work, you can get there from the Start Page
    My Trackers drop down menu (from the top bar)
    Click "My Spark Points"
    Scroll down to Community section
    Spark Team Bonus Points - look to the end of the line
    Use Bonus spins - click that!

    Once you've gotten 25 points each day, you can spin for 5 different teams. The points you win add to your point total as well!

    Happy spinning!

    I did eat some cookies but not as many as I would have liked to. Hot from the oven are the best!
