I am trying to find myself at the age of 71. A little old to be starting, but this may be the best place to do that.

It is me again with another user name to freshen up the new year. I've been active ever since I last posted here. I like the exercise videos and the different teams. Some members I've gotten to know and especially appreciate the ones who tell all of us to "Don't Quit".

I am going to do a few simple things to start loosing all these unwanted pounds.

My food choices are good ones, but my serving sizes are too big. I'm going to eat recommended serving sizes.

Between each meal I'm going to do some physical motions that use calories as fuel. When I've lost 5 lb. I'll make my exercises longer but not different. I don't want super sore muscles to slow me down so I'm going slow.

I just wanted to let you all know I'm back. Sorry I've been gone but my computer went out and I finely got a new laptop and it took awhile to get one. Last March I was at Costco in Puyllup and I ended up with A-Fib and my friend had to take me to the ER and that is when I found out I had heart problems So now I'm taking meds for it and been fine ever since. I see my heart doctor in Nov but seen him once in April so now it's every 6 months last Saturday night I had a small one but it only took 5 minutes to stop and I did pray to God to stop it cause I wanted to go to church and God made it stop for me and I was happy. And loosing the weight helped a lot. I know the doctors says walking is best so I do a lot of walking.

Good morning, NANAFITZPATR1 and I hope your day is going good so far. From your user name I am wondering if you are part Irish like I am... but I'm mostly Swedish and Swiss.

GREETINGS - You are looking at my "TODAY" shot and my "BEFORE", in that order. Initial weight: 418 1/2. This morning, August 2018 - I weighed in at 319. I have 19 pounds to my goal of 300, and then its "downhill" from there. Is there anybody in here riding with me?

is any one else having success by using the meal plan and weekly shopping list on the nutrition tracker? does the visual of exercise time spent give you encouragement like it does for me?

Yesterday a beautiful young lady posted a current picture of herself and two people belittled her where she felt the need to have to apologize. One of the critics was an encouragement post person from 12-12-15 I want Sparkpeople to be where others are lifted up. Encouraged and can feel proud of thier accomplishments. That posting negative comments will not be tolerated by the community and we can support the belittled person with support

It has been such a warm fall here, so not use to this. Today however....feels much cooler, might need to turn the furnace on! I am going to get out for some exercise this morning, will have to put an extra layer on.

Hope you all have a good day!

Hello Everyone!

Just thought I would share. I went to Ancestry and I ordered a DNA test to find out more about my heritage. I was inspired by my mother for she was adopted and we wanted to learn more. To make a very long story short here was my surprising results!



I was shocked and honored at the same time to be part of so many ethnicities! emoticon

I'm in Australia, it's just gone spring, and it has not warmed up very much yet. But I am trying to go for a bit more of a walk after I drop the kids off at school, instead of just walking straight home.

I am new to this team, but not new to SP. I have been around quite a while. I joined because I have not been on for quite a long time and I am hoping that it will help me navigate the site as it has changed quite a bit since I was last here.
