Start over time

emoticon The age of 74 will soon be 75, it is about time I get off my rumpus and take care of myself. I have been taking care of my husband for the last 2 years and actually forgot I have a responsibility to my self as well as my better half. He is getting better every day but I have used his illness as an excuse to let myself go both mentally and physically. I woke up one day and had to find a reason to breathe the air around me. I actually forgot I had a place on this wonderful earth.
I have regrouped and remembered how I felt when I was doing spark people, so another turn at the wheel and I deserve it. I know I don't like being fat and lazy and this is the place I need to be. One small step at a time, one day at a time. And don't buy any sweets.

    Well I have a couple years on you my friend and I just pushed the RESTART Button too. At least the restart for weight loss. I eat healthy and exercise almost everyday. However I am not losing weight, which I came here to do. I would like to lose 50 plus pounds. Eating salads and walking isn't doing it, so back to the drawing board. I thought the NO SUGAR and Artificial sweeteners was a good place to start.

    The best to you in your weight loss endeavors. MA

    You come to the right place. I started slow, just tracking food. Then worked 1 meal at a time, bkfst, lunch, then dinner. Now I working on exercise. I dance 1-2 songs, march/walk in place to exercise video, stretches, twists, cans for dumbells.
