OK, so I'm 68. Does that mean I cannot be athletic. Absolutely not. I am there and intend to stay there. I am close to my goal weight, so continuing weight loss is not really the point. My participation in SparkPeople is all about learning from those who have met their goals and how they maintain their weight and their fitness. My passion is to inspire others to reach their goals and become all that they can be. To the extent I can do that I will spend the next 30 years being fulfilled

Member Since: 6/29/2003

Fitness Minutes: 124,409

My Goals:
I have three goals. #1 is to live a healthy lifestyle. That means eating smart, getting lots of exercise and work on getting more sleep. #2 is to slowly lose about 15 lbs, or at least redistribute some of it, as in remove it from the belly and put more of it into upper body muscle. #3 is to encourage, stimulate and motivate as many people as I can to follow my example, by being a good community member on SparkPeople, and by providing a good example to my friends and family.

My Program:
Eat less, move more. I don't count my calories, fat etc., I am just careful about the foods that I select and try to be aware of the portion I consume. My exercise program includes Spinning, trail running, yoga, swimming, cycling and strength work. I try to make sure I do a minimum of 30 minutes a day of exercise

Personal Information:
My name is Chuck, I am 65 and am actually in very good health. I have 6 children, 12 grand-children and two great-grandchildren. A few extra pounds have found there way on and I want to live to be 110, so, here we go!!!I I am recently retired and am trying to be a good house-husband to my still working teacher wife while enjoying my several passions.

Other Information:
My passions, besides my family which always comes first, are photography, quilting and writing. I also love to work out, especially cardio.

    Hi, This is JO from Shutterbugs Team.
    I notice you have not been active lately in our team and you are listed as a leader.
    Is this something you are still wanting to be active with?
    We are wanting to get more people to help out with the team and want to add some new leaders.
    If you are unable to answer this we will go ahead and drop you off the leader list. But feel free to let us know anytime if you want to be back on it!!
    Thanks and hope all if going well with you.

    emoticon I see you had a birthday, so Happy belated Birthday. The Leo person is a leader and loves to be the center of attention. Leo has to take care of his spine and his heart as they are his weak area. Leo has few children but loves children and makes a great teacher. Leo makes a good actor, King, or salesman as he has great charm. Leo gets along with Sagittarius, Aries, Libra, Gemini and Aquarius.

    Thank you for the blog on my SparkPage! I look forward to hearing some of your riding journeys... I sure miss running, swimming and riding! The workouts were just a great part of my life! I am a bit of a fanatic once I set my mind to do something! I have adjusted to strength training and doing as much cardio as my body allows!!

    Ride Safe!! Looking forward to some of your posts about where you've ridden, and how you faired!

    Hi there. Nola here.Love your blog!! I am a former triathlete/runner. I can no longer do them due to bad knees. I have been athletic most of my life and it just kills me that I cannot run or bike! I used to ride100 miles a weekend and then run over 20 miles until I was 44! After that I became a nurse and the riding slowed way down due to scheduling conflicts. I also used to ride some off road! Gosh the rush! I am happy to hear that you are maintaining your weight and working out! Go for it!

    Thanks for the inspiration! Congrats on your weight loss journey!
