Hi , I am mid 60''s and been up and down with weight . Since starting to use Spark in Feb I''ve lost about 20 lbs. Slow but steady. 3/1/16-OK, not so steady! When I started Spark (Feb 2015) I was194 lb did good 'till Sept. Then plateaued for awhile. After Jan slight increase, in Feb we had to cancel 2 of our WOW ( Winners Over Weight) meetings and I jumped up 6 lb ! :-( So now I'm up 11 lb. Reset my goal again 4 days ago-Fri 2/26/16 and back to doing 3 walk ("run") /week with the C25K app. Since my reset I'm DOWN 2.75 lb, today 182.75 lb. !!!! :-) On my way AGAIN ! Update : finally lost a bit more down to 178 on Mon(7/4/16) !!!!! 11/03/17 PS. That's me and my Hubby in picture ! ♡♥♡ 08/07/19 Well, I'm still bouncing up & down with weight, guess so far this year it's been as high as 188lb . Last few days I've kept it at 180 lb. Working on getting to 178 and below. It's difficult to find/make time what with work, house work, garden & about 2.5 acre yard to mow. I enjoy outside work, actually hoping for a rain-free day to finish mowing and trim my Rosa Rugosa & Silver Olive bushes by my walkway! 06/27/20 Time for another update! This year we had to do our FRFW 5K virtually, did that 5/30. Been getting more joint aches lately with swelling in feet & hands, finally had a video conference with dr & blood work done to try to find cause. On a good note my weight is better, although today it's 178.25, it was 177.75 a few days ago- major milestone for me! Finally out of 180s, now to get to 175 then 170 & below! 😊 08/17/20 Update on blood work, I have Lyme Disease ! Must have got a tick bite I didn't know about while training for FRFW. It's been very painful to walk especially first thing in a.m. ! Fingers still quite swollen, had to get one of my rings cut off b/c I couldn't get it off. On a good note my weight is down to 172.5 lb finally.

    Our powerwall stores energy from the solar panels. When it reaches 100%, the power is "sold" back to the electric company (goes back to the grid). If and when the power from the electric company goes out, the powerwall kicks in and we have power!! We hope that the powerwall is always at 100%; however, at night it uses the powerwall rather than the power from the grid. It's really a great thing to have. We have only 8 solar panels, but it is enough to generate power to our house without being overly excessive. The powerwall is a box that is attached to the wall of our garage. It is 269 pounds and is 45.3" x 29.7" x 6.1". It doesn't take up much space since it is attached to the wall. Look up Tesla Powerwall 2 for more information.

    Thanks for asking....

    Thank you for commenting on my blog today! What planting zone are you in? I'm in 9b. Technically, my Spring garden pretty much reaches the fallow stage in mid-July - Just too darned hot. We get a second shot at it in the Fall - I'll start seedling in about mid-September and plant out in October and November. Our first frost date is December 15, but our coldest month is January/February - Our last frost date is February 15, so we pretty much grow year 'round. emoticon
