** UPDATE** April 2019 153 and holding! Getting ready for the push to reach goal weight this next year! Onward and downward!

Who says you can't loose weight if you're older, or on medications that "make you fat". Well, I know everyone and every circumstance is different, but I'm 65 and am on psych medications that are well-known to make you gain weight in that they increase your cravings and slow metabolism, but I have lost 45 pounds and am only 18 pounds from my goal weight despite that! So, don't be discouraged, you CAN do it! Because I did and if I did, so can you.....


I am feeling thinner today
I am getting stronger, healthier and slimmer everyday
I am losing weight effortlessly
I look and feel slimmer everyday
I am losing weight slowly but surely
I enjoy being slim and fit
I am on the road to great health and a great looking body
I am proud of myself for eating the right foods
I love how I feel after I exercise
I love the feeling of being slim and healthy
I am ready to be thin again
I find It feels so good to have a toned body
I create an abundance of energy when I work out
I acknowledge that my health is extremely important to me
I am taking care of myself and it gives me great confidence
I am committed to doing what it takes to become slim again and healthy
I deserve to be healthy in body and in mind
I will succeed at controlling my weight
I enjoy life when I am in good shape
I find water is refreshing and satisfies my food cravings
I find that every day I notice positive changes in my body

(I got this from a fellow Sparker, loved it and made it my own.)

Member Since: 4/6/2012

My Goals:
Reach goal weight 135, BMI of 25 by January, 2020.

My Program:
I am following no plan except to track what I eat with the Nutrition Tracker and using a FitBit for activity and tracking to keep to my calories and activity goals. Food tracking worked before, and it will work again.

Personal Information:
I am a 64 year old "girl" who lives in Jacksonville, Florida. I have lost 50 pounds and went from OBESE to OVERWEIGHT. I now need to reach the NORMAL weight category for optimum overall good health, and to me that would be 135 lbs.

Other Information:
I love reading and playing games on my computer, I also love playing Mah Jong. I struggle at getting there, but do water aerobics whenever possible (the winter months are even more challenging). I write poetry and crochet.

    Welcome! If you need a shoulder, a friend or a virtual coffee at some point, drop by and say hello! I've just celebrated my SP six month anniversary and am amazed at the absolutely incredible amount of support I've received. This is a fabulous site and you will be astounded at what you get out of it if you give it your all.

    To celebrate your arrival here at SP, as well as to welcome in the Spring season, I would like to wish you a brand new start, never-ending moments of poise and balance and a joyful tip over on the scale to the side of light. I wish you a new dawn, an eternal youth and a morning star to wish on. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may they melt away with the winter and may you be granted a time of new light and a new life where your wildest dreams come true. ~ Michelle

    Hello and Welcome to SparkPeople!

    I started Sparking in June of 2007. By using Spark and some self-discovery along the way, I’m down 50 pounds, and am holding steady at a healthy weight. As a happy semi-retired free thinking, intelligent woman I love to challenge, encourage and stimulate. Spark is a massive site; you'll be discovering new and exciting things for months to come!
    Diet is a dirty word, every time I hear it, I wash my mouth out with chocolate emoticon emoticon
