Hi! Your journey is very similar to mine - this is also my first year in the 50s (will be 51 in Dec) and have been an on-again, off-again Spark user. Looking forward to getting to know folks in here and keeping each other motivated!

I am an on again/off again sparker. I am always glad SP is here for me when I need to turn around and start again. I will be 51 this Friday and have been struggling for many years to get and keep weight off. Somewhere over the course of the last year I realized this is a lifetime effort, not just a temporary attempt. I do very well when I have a community of people to walk the journey with me. SO....it's me again, I'm back!

Hello, I just turned 50 this year and even though I do not feel older mentally, my body sure is telling me otherwise. Most of my fitness goals are geared towards strengthening my body to help with this shift and hopefully eventually lose some weight. It has been a battle ever since I developed asthma 25 years ago, but I feel it's all a matter of learning what works best for my body and then I will see some sustaining success.

Hey there. emoticon

My name is Dawn. I'm 51 & needing very badly to lose 100 lbs. I joined SP many many years ago. But was never able to stick with it for one reason or another.
I just got lab results back that showed my diabetic A1c is 9.6! It's never been over 6.2 on meds. emoticon
When speaking to my PCP today said I also had other labs come back as "alarming". She said it is imperative that I get my diabetes under control. The best way to do that is change the way I've been eating & to get this weight off.
So, here I am, again.

Looking forward to starting this new chapter here in the 50's!
