Twelve years ago I reached my goal of 160. I need to get there again.

I did it with Sparkpeople and weight watchers.

I would walk a lot and had a lot more energy. This time
I will have to pace the walking. These old knees aren't what they use to be.

My knees are painful and I know the weight has a lot to do with it.

I know what I have to do to lose the weight, so I am going to
do it again with the help of Sparkpeople and all my friends
on Sparkpeople who helped me do it before.

It's going to be a little different this time, however, because I am in my 70's now and won't lose it quickly.

    Thanks so much for the warm welcome! I am so loving this place! I feel like a kid on "my space". Really, I'm so thankful to have found this site and I can't believe it's free! There is so much to offer and I know this time I will lose the weight. As far as the "frustration" yes, we all know what that's like especially in this market! But I'm still hangin in there! Thanks again and I'll talk to you soon!

    Work has been unfathomably stressful of late...but somehow I've stayed focused and I'm watching what I eat and making the elliptical workouts a priority.... I finally lost another 1.5 pounds, but it just *seems* like I'm working so hard that I should be losing more. I guess I just need to be more patient!!

    Hope that you are doing well this lovely weekend!!
