Welcome NANAHICKE and CATALINTA to this team. I am glad you have come back to spark with us. It is all a process and one day at a time to change. I agree NANAHICKE life is full of choices all resulting in success or not.

I used to be on Spark People but I don't know what happened. My husband got sick and died, so maybe that was most of it. It has been almost nine years ago now. I somehow lost a lot of weight the last couple of years, but sitting here at my home desk every day, I feel like my stomach and tummy are huge! Probably all in my mind, but I could use to start moving a little more and trying to get back in shape. I have been a born again Christian since 1973. I love singing in the choir, but alas, can't do it with the quarantine.

Good afternoon. I would say that I'm new, but that would not quite be true. I was at one time was on SP and I did well. Then life happened and I gained weight. In 2014 I had four surgeries two minor and two major. I quit SP and now I'm back. I started at 177 and have already lost a pound. Add to that a change in homes, added responsibility in more than one way and life has gotten complicated and very busy. It's even busy during Covid-19.

Welcome Netty. I am finding it difficult to work out, making masks, thank you cards for hospitals, etc. Hopefully soon I can get back to a workout schedule.

Hi Netty! Welcome to the team. I just turned 70 last week so we have some things in common. I have gained some of my weight back because the stay at home order and our gym being closed has limited my exercise. emoticon

Hi, I'm Linda. New to this team but have been on Spark People in the past. Very excited to meet other Christian women. I live in a retirement community in Maine. Not sure I quite know how to use these message boards. When I logged on, I saw everyone indicating a number, but wasn't sure what it was all about.

Thank you for being here.

I am right there with you. Have had successes in the past, but too many surgeries and then Cancer. Was doing ok and then the craziness of retirement/training my replacement/meetings. Need to get back on track myself. New Year/New start.

Hi there,
I am new to this team but have been with sparkpeople two other stints. The first time around was very successful and I got exactly where I wanted to be. I felt good and was active on the site to keep it there. Then.... time and life got busy and I slacked off, only to make a return much later. Now I am back again. I hope I can make this stick this time. I am a retired elementary school counselor, with 40 years under my belt. I am an active volunteer for a Faith based residential home for women coming out of sex trafficking (www.hopecenterindy.org) more on that later :) Plus other volunteer opportunities as well. I am at my heaviest, non-pregnant weight, and hate this stomach that has appeared. Hoping to find my motivation here....
thank you,
Patty

Hi! I lost about 30 pounds in 2016, but have gained 14 pounds back! I am looking for motivation to get these 14 pounds off.

I have been retired from teaching elementary music since 2007. I have 4 grandchildren ages 1, 3, 15, 15. The 15 year olds are twins.

We have 2 dogs: Ryder, an Australian cattle dog and Colman, a mini-poodle. Colman and I do dog agility together. It is a lot of fun, but both of us are getting a little older.

I am active in church music and I lead a women's Sunday School class.

My husband and I are building a home, beginnng in 2017. We have been living here for 3 months. It is not finished, but that's ok for now. When I say we are building, I mean we did the work. We had contractors build the shell, put in electric, furnace . . . but we are doing the inside. It's been an interesting experience and exhausting.

I love reading and used to scrapbook. I am hoping to get back to that since I have new grandchildren since my last scrapbook.

Recently, my husband has been diagnosed with kidney cancer. This is a scary time in our lives, but we will trust the Lord.

I am happy for the weight I lost. When I joined Spark People the first time in 2011, I was obese. Now I am back and have a few pounds to go!!
Our greatest need is more of the Lord. - Stormie Omartian

New to the team, not new to SparkPeople by any means. Church Secretary ( for another month), married to a wonderful husband who was by my side during cancer treatment for Peritoneal Cancer (treated as Ovarian). 5 yrs past chemo now and doing pretty well. Have some lingering side effects, but they are manageable.

Still need to lose quite a bit, need to get back on track!

Hi all, I am rejoining SparkPeople and hoping it will help me get to where I need to be. I am a widow. My husband had cancer so I went through that battle with him for two years. I'm 65 and have decided to continue working for at least another two years, I just don't want to be home alone right now. I am a grandmother and step-grandmother to 21 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. I enjoy scrapbooking and card making as well as reading.

Hello, my name is Robin. I知 65, active and love the Lord. I知 helping my brother and his wife take care of of my mom who is 87 years old, she has lots of issues and mostly needs someone to sit with her and help with activities. So I do a lot of sitting, try to workout to videos while I知 with my mom. Making smart food choices is hard as it痴 a lot of stress. Need to loose at least 10 pounds. Doesn稚 sound like much but it gets harder everyday. Thanks in advance for the motivation and prayers.

Hello everyone. My name is Georgann but everyone calls me George. It is easier for people to remember. I am 67 years young, married and have three grown daughters and two grown sons, two step daughters and many grandkids and great grandkids. I work part time at our local Senior Center as a bookkeeper and my husband and I have miniature horses that we show and sell. We also have five Shih Tzu dogs. I love to read, sing and crochet. I am a member of a small country church in a nearby town. I know that Christ will send more members in time.



I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

Hello to all. MY actual name is Ruth and I'm a retired RN, wife,grandmother of 14, great gramma of 3 and one more on the way. I live a very sedentary life sitting and crocheting or reading.I'm 77 years old.I'm very healthy and happy to say that with the help of the Lord I was able to lose all of my excess weight and am now 105 which I never dreamed possible. I haven't been that weight since probably age 10...seriously. Now I need to exercise more. emoticon

How do you get that graph thing at the bottom on your message that shows how much you've lost?

Welcome to the team EBETHE70. I agree that the charts are not necessarily correct in what weight is appropriate for each of us. I am so glad that you are feeling more energy with this weight loss.

Hi, am 67 years young and living in very very rural TN. Have 50+ weight to lose. I know the charts say I should be about 105, but was 118 in HS and 125 or thereabouts in college. I don't see myself getting that small again so at 145 will see how I feel and look. My challenge is to break the 190 barrier by 11/5--my birthday. Would be a nice present to myself. I am currently at 192, so is very possible. I started at 211 and already am feeling a lot more energetic but am a quilter so I spend too much time sitting. I feel like I can now add some exercise into the mix!

Hello. I知 restarting spark people after several years absence.im retired but staying too close to the refrigerator has helped me put 50 pounds on since retiring in 2012. I知 69 this obesity has caught up with my health and not in a good way.im recovering from a tear in my foot and plantar facieties. I have carpal tunnel in both hands and one elbow area.isee the surgeon in a week.who would have thought that being obese and having large breast caused pressure on my shoulder strap area which caused the carpal tunnel!!! Then blood tests show I知 prediabetic and am very low in vit. B12 for which I知 getting weekly injections for at least another two months. But I am thankful to the Lord for the good health I do have and for being directed to the dr that I知 seeing. I知 glad you all are here.

.......For when I am weak then I am strong ( in Christ)

I am newly retired and am now learning who I am now that I no longer have my identity of my work. (I do know that I have an identity in Christ but need more.) I want to continue to have an impact on people in this new era of my life. I believe that joining this group will help me keep focused and I will be able to interact with women who have the same ideals as I do and the goal of getting fitter.

Hi Ladies! I am a new member and was very excited to find this team. I am 66 years old, recently had to retire due to some health issues. I had planned to work a couple more years, but God had a different idea. I also had to sell my house due to poor mobility. LOTS of changes for me, but no complaints, because God is so good! Now, i am trying to learn how to improve my health, serve the Lord and be a blessing in this new season.
