I'm a serial offender.
I come back every couple of years a couple of pounds heavier after having lost some weight while I stuck to the Sparkplan.
So. Now I'm 64 and I'm definitely chubby, especially the unwanted roll around my middle. I'm 5'4'' and 157 lbs which puts my BMI in the unhealthy range. I also have arthritis which is exacerbated by being overweight and I'm worried about losing my mobility. I've already had operations on both of my big toes and have a steel inserts meaning I can't move the big joint.Last year I had an arthroscopy on my left knee, a new left hip, and then I broke my ankle!
I started my own business 5 years ago, which was really good fun at first, but just grew and grew until I had no time for anything except work. My Mum got dementia and came to live in a home near me last January, and any time I did have free was spent with her. She died in September.
I've just retired.
So now I have time for myself. I do still run a small property business to pay the bills but I have no excuse for not looking after myself better.
I have 2 lovely collie dogs who require quite a lot of walking which really helps me to get out and about.
I also have time to visit my four lovely children who are all grown up, and my 3 beautiful granddaughters. I'm also playing music live again after many years. So Life is good.
