I am 60+ and noticed loss of flexibility and stamina more as the years piled up. I am no longer overweight and have reached my goal weight. I lost 80 pounds from my top weight. I am putting myself first for the first time in my life. I will continue to be relentless in the pursuit of a healthier me.

I've been with Spark People for 13 years now. I want to fully enjoy my retirement and improve my overall health! I 've had success in the past but only when I am consistent with using SP tools and resources. I've lost 80 pounds and my blood pressure is normal, thanks to all the tools and support from SP. I was able to eliminate one blood pressure medication. I no longer need to use CPAP.

Member Since: 5/20/2007

Fitness Minutes: 69,803

My Goals:
Maintain my weight in a healthy range-long term.
Increase strength and flexibility.
Reduce or eliminate blood pressure medication (unlikely given my family history but it could happen)
Be able to do at least ONE "boy" push up.

My Program:
The steps I'm taking to get there: Stay active in SparkPeople with tracking fitness and nutrition. Regular exercise is a part of my life. I have greatly reduced white carbs and am working on limiting sodium. I recognize that I am a work in progress. I'm working on making ST a habit. I will continue to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and strive for consistent bedtime to ensure a minimum of 7 hours sleep a night.

Personal Information:
Closing in on 65, happily married with an adult son. I reached my goal weight in April 2020.

Other Information:
Favorites: (besides God and family)
The beach
Scrapbooking and cardmaking
Seattle Seahawks
Facebook -shameful, I know, but it has been a necessary diversion while COVID predominates.

    Hey you are doing great on your journey. I found your page and wanted to reach out.
    I live in Washington as well and saw your teams and I think you must live here.
    I moved from the west side to the east side of the state this summer and I finally have a tan this year!!
