Thank you for getting this group going again. New Years is a great time to start thinking about what I want to accomplish. I just turned 62 a few weeks ago and am determined to take small steps and improve my fitness.

Looking forward to hearing from some of the members here for encouragement and advice.

Hi, my name is Jean and I am 62 years old. I need to lose at least 50 pounds but am going for 20 first. Sure is harder to lose it than it was to put it on. LOL. Hoping to make some friends along the way too. Take Care.

Just joined. Looking for a team for my age group, would be nice to have others of the same age who understand the same struggles. The team "sounds" good, but I 'm not finding much activity on it. The fall picture looked so inviting...

Just joined the team and posted to some of the game forums in an attempt to revive them - some were pretty old but maybe a new posting will spark some energy into them.

I'm glad to find this team, even though I'm about to enter the + stage instead of the 60s stage - oh, well, time marches on and as long as we're on this side of the dirt, all is good.

Looking forwrd to getting to know some of you!

Hi! I'm glad to be joining your team and look forward to reading all the posts. I live in Wisconsin and am just in from a beautiful walk in the woods with my dog Molly. The snow is very pretty and Molly loves chasing around and sniffing all the tracks. My concern is cholesterol and getting it under control with diet rather than drugs. Hope everyone is having a great Friday.

Hi, My name is Kathy and I am also looking forward to sharing my Fit for Life journey with others who are enthusiastic for life. I have two new Granbabies and another on the way. I plan are being around for them for many years to come.

Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind it doesn't matter.

Forget all the reasons it won't work and Believe the one reason it will.

Your attitude determines your direction.

Never stop learning and never give up.

Hi, my name is Linda. I'm from MD and I'm 67. Have two adopted kitties and a lot of adopted pounds, those I want to loose. I'll keep the fur balls. Like interacting with people of my own age and interests, so SparkPeople is just right for me. emoticon

I turned 60 last month, and am working on being fit for life, so this looks like a great team to join! I am still getting the hang of utilizing the Spark People website - there is so much help here! I really got serious (again) about losing weight a few weeks ago, and am thinking this time I need to take advantage of all the support and accountability of virtual friends!

emoticon MOIRA2 ~ It is great to have you on our team!

It isn't easy at first but it will improve. Walk and rest where you can, most parks have benches, thank goodness!

You might try an Aqua-Fit class. You can get a good work out without the pain on your joints. It doesn't cost an arm and leg to join either, which is helpful on the pocket book! They usually have deep end of a pool or the shallow end, depending on your swimming ability, is where you will know where you fit in, if you join an Aqua-Fit class.

At the community indoor pool in my area they offer early morning and early evening Aqua-Fit classes, to accommodate many different peoples life styles and schedules.

emoticon I am new here as well. This looks like a great team to be on! I will be 63 this Christmas. My weight and health have gone off the rails a bit. My goals are to get rid of 60+ pounds and learn a better way to live. Being tired and in pain all the time is not living. emoticon I work full time and have a couple of years to go and will never make it at this rate!

I like to read, quilt and walk in the parks in my area. Walking has started to become an issue because my weight is hard on the hip, knees and feet. Can anyone relate? emoticon

I am determined to get myself back on track for a better life and will be here for anyone who needs a kind word. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi to all! I joined SparkPeople about 10 days ago and was exploring the site when I found your SparkTeam for 60+'ers. I had my 60th birthday 3 months ago. My first weight loss goal is 23 lbs, and feel encouraged that I lost 11/2 lb this first week. I love the food tracker; it has helped me find "hidden" carbs and fats in my eating habits.

A few simple facts . . . do I have anything in common with some of you?
I live in Georgia (joined the GA SparkTeam too); am married to a golfer-guy for 35 years; recently retired after teaching high school English for 38 years; love gardening, reading, sports events, volunteer work, my church, the beach, and of course, my grandkids.

I look forward to having everyone's support and I hope I can be supportive to y'all as well.




I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see. --John Burroughs

Hi, I have been a member of Spark People since 2009. I didn't actively participate until I retired. A Christmas picture taken at my daughter's convinced me it was time to be healthy and fit for life .Since March 2013 I have lost over 30 pounds and begun exercising in earnest.

If you make the unconditional commitment to reach your most important goals, if the strength of your decision is sufficient, you will find the way and the power to achieve your goals.

I guess we can't remain 30 in our minds forever and day. Time to accept the fact we are part of the aging population! "Fit as fiddle" as the old saying goes, we can be fit at any age with persistence!

Hi everyone! I've been a SP member since '09, but became inactive a couple years ago. I've had a challenging time healthwise the past few months, but have "got it together" and now am back to participate as an active member. It's time for healthy living and caring for myself in all aspects. I found this team and it does look like a really great fit for me. So nice to be here. I'm retired from f/t work, however work retail for a few hours a month..... very few, ie 12 hours in July and a few more in August. I'm in my 66th yr, don't look for feel that age..... and enjoying life. I will join goals and streaks soon.

Hi ~
I've been a member of the team for a few weeks but have not posted. I'm 63 (birthday in March) and have been retired from teaching for 6 years. I taught first through third grades for 35.5 years. I'm single, never married, and share my home with 2 cats, Jake and Nellie. I share custody of Peaches (bearded collie) and 2 cats (Boots and MamaCat) with my 85 year old mother who lives nearby. I'm struggling to get back on track and stay there. My main goal is to improve my health and weight loss is a huge part of that (no pun intended).

Hello, I just turned 60 this month and it really dawned on me, I've got to get my act together NOW. I own & operate my own business & have for most of my life. I have a small in-home childcare, present early Childhood seminars & I'm a registered Tax Preparer. I have been married forever, have 3 grown children, 9 grandchildren & now a great child. I was informed this year that I am pre-diabetic, so it really made me stop & think about what I need to do now, not later. I want to spend what ever time I have left of my life healthy & still fun. Thank you for allowing me to join your team.

Be the best you can be every day!

HI! My name is Jean and I am a 67 soon to be 68 years young. Even though I have cancer and maybe I should say because of lung cancer I try to live each day as if happiness consists of living each day as if it were the first day of my honeymoon and the last day of my vacation.

I am from northern WI but by mid August I will be returning to NC to be with my family. I keep my SP page up to date and would love to have you stop by!

Look forward to working to this team!

I have been absent recently due to illness. Though on the mend now! Boy you certainly have a clan! I have one daughter, son in law and grand daughter. They live close by. They were talking of selling their home and moving to Salmon Arm, B.C. An hour and half away. I hate to say it but glad their venture did not materialize.

Hello All,
I am new to this team, but not new to SP. Been around off and on since 2007. Lost weight to gain it back and then lose it again. Trying a different approach this time. Making lifestyle changes I can live with instead of dramatic things that only work for a minute. I live in northern Colorado. I have been married for almost 25 years. I have 2 grown kiddos and 3 grandkiddos. My hubby has 3 kiddos and 5 grandkiddos.
I am a cake decorator by trade. I am 61 yrs. wise. A kitty person at heart, but also have 2 pup dogs. Looking for a team with folks in it that actually talk. That's something else I was lacking in before. There was no community. Most of the teams I was a member of have now fallen asleep and I can't seem to raise anyone. So I am team shopping. I'd like to hang out and get to know you all. emoticon

Spark People.com is the number one diet/fitness site on the web. It doesn't surprise me, as all members have one thing in common, weight issues. Many have decided to eat healthy, get into a exercise routine extra. Without the support of fellow members, it surely would be a lonely place in here!

There is so much information on this web site, it is mind boggling but take tiny steps, so not to become over whelmed. Support from other members is here 24/7!

Hi! I'm relatively new to SparkPeople (about 6 weeks) and just joined this team. I'm hoping to develop more healthy habits a little at a time and lose weight to hopefully prevent potential future health issues, for more energy, and improved appearance.

I am new here. I have been with spark for long time but have not joined any discussions or asked for help emoticon . I would be interested in hooking up with people in Madison. I really could use the encouragement. Sorry I am in Madison, WI. Actually I am in Fitchburg. Would love to go for walk with anyone in area. I have 3 children and 4 grandchildren.

Welcome Sharon. !! I had been a sparker back in 2008 and then dwindled away..but came back the end of last year. Very pleased with the welcoming remarks from everyone and the encouragement I have gotten from the groups I have joined. Sounds like you have an awesome family. Enjoy meeting new people and this has been so much fun. I'm a nurse and have worked ICU for over 30 years. Cut to part time last year but have 5 more years to go before retirement. Wanted to improve my health status so that I can age a little more gracefully. emoticon Take care now. Best of luck with all your health endeavors.

I had joined sparks about two years ago but drifted away. I don't know why because sparks helped me get organized to keep track of my weight and enabled me to be conscious of what I ate. The many encouraging emails from the team leaders had really helped me to get motivated. This is a new year and I am planning on focusing on myself. Being current with sparks team is one way I know how. Every help I get from reading and participating with the messages, rallies, blogs etc.. will be appreciated. Thank you for including me in your team.

Joyce, Awesome... I lived I Minot for 1.5 years 1980-81. Started my ICU career there. Was an LPN 1971, got my diploma in nursing in Fargo at St. Lukes Hospital in 1975. Worked peds for 1.5 years then worked med-surg till 1980. Have been ICU ever since. Lived in Salt Lake City and worked at the University Hospital there from 1981-87, moved to Denver in 87. Finally bit the bullet and got my BSN in 1991 through University of Phoenix program here in Denver. So guess you could say I took the scenic route. LOL... Castle

To Catetal,
I used to live in North Dakota. My husband was stationed at Minot AFB in the 1970's and I got my BSN at Minot State but graduated before that with a diploma in nursing from Baptist Memorial Hospital in Memphis. We moved a lot while my husband was in the Air Force so I worked in a variety of med-surg areas and specialized eventually in Maternity nursing. I retired from nursing last year and my last job was teaching maternity and med-surg nursing in a community college in Texas where we live.

Hi Joyce, and yes I'm new to the team, turned 60 in December and am a Registered Nurse. ICU for over 30 years now and since we as nurses don't care for ourselves nearly as well as others.... I'm now taking a selfish approach in life. Cut to part time in October and taking steps to a healthier lifestyle. I'm down 50 pounds since last September and feeling awesome. I'm single but have dogs and cats in my family that are the lights of my life. I have always said, if I knew back then what I know now I may have gone into veterinary medicine. LOL. I live in Colorado now but am originally from North Dakota. Grew up on a farm so good hard work was instilled quite young. Guess I have rattled on for too long. Will look forward to getting to know new people throughout Sparks. Was involved in Sparks in 2008 but never really got it off the ground. So this will be another new beginning. emoticon

Hello,
My name is Joyce. I am a retired Registered Nurse who along with my DH care for 2 of our grandchildren while our daughter (middle school teacher) and her husband work. It is a challenge but we love them and enjoy watching them grow. They are 7 months and 20 months. Thankfully we only have them 4 days a week and the oldest goes to Mother's Day Out at our church for 6 hours 3 days a week. I joined Sparkpeople in October and have been happy with all the tools and the encouragement I have received. I look forward to being a part of your team..

Joyce T

Hi, my name is Castle and I guess I fit into this group, just hit the 60 mark last month. Had been a sparks member in 2008 and then kind of got away from it with all the whirlwind things that go on in life. I am a nurse and last September made a decision to make life-style changes to control my weight and become healthy/healthier. I consistently get out walking with the dogs but was finding my joints were not as forgiving as they were when I was younger (and lighter). I began a program (can't advertise the name) in September and have lost almost 50#. I am nearly to my goal weight and am looking forward to transition phase and then on to maintenance. I also have cut to part time in the ICU I work in and have taken on another role of being a health coach with the program I am currently utilizing. Looking forward to getting to know new people and offering encouragement and support from Colorado. Wishing you all many blessings now in 2013.

UPDATE

This little questionaire, got lost in the posts.
HOPEFULLY THE LINK WILL WORK

Please take a moment and introduce yourself so we can all get to know you!

You may have noticed that there are two birthday lists. One is set as a sticky topic, which means only the team leader/s have access to edit by adding new member's birthdays.

It was created so all team members can read and access birthdays for each currant month, to see who is celebrating a birthday. Making it easier to send a Happy Birthday message to team members.

The other Birthday list is not set as sticky topic for all members to access. This is where hopefully new members, will post their month and day of their birthday so the team leader can transer the information permanently to stationary Birthday List for all team members to view.
