My name is Mary and I live upstate NY near the Canadian border.

Here I am again. I do need to lose at least 6 pounds. I have reverted to unhealty eating and would like to get rid of this hugh big belly.

Almost 1 year later and I am doing a little better. 136 pounds this morning. I guess I would like to take off a couple of more pounds and then maintain about that weight.

Most of this weight loss is recent and most of it is due to my great younger and smarter sister, Dotti. We are now paying a lot of attention to organic and natural foods. I think most of the extra weight I was carrying was due to the sodium in the processed foods. I do feel better now also.

Here I am again! This is getting old and I am not getting any thinner. lol. I am now 142.0 so I have not gained back all of my weight since the last time. My sister artchick made me do it. hehehe This time I will try and follow her advice about nutrition.

February 14, 2010 and here I am again and back up to 147 pounds. Yuk!

Here I am again! This time I will do it. I know that Spark People will help me do it if I do my part. Left to my own resources I gain weight not lose it.

Other activities that keep me on the go and out of trouble are....treasurer to the local Rescue Squad. We are in a rural area and the squad is manned/womaned by volunteers. I cannot do what these wonderful people do so I am their treasurer. We have 3 ambulances, 1 crash truck and maintained 2 buildings.
One day per week I spend at my nephew's business on a consulting/accounting basis. This is not all work, first I have to have coffee, then get caught up on all the family news, then....Oh Gosh, it's time for lunch, a business lunch of course. We do get busy in the afternoon and I find the answers to the problems that have accumulated over the week.
The church takes some of my time too.

Yes, I am back again. I gained back my previous loss, plus. So off we go again. Happy New Year Dec. 24, 2008

A few things of changed since I first came to Spark People. Now I have a heart problem and have to actually look at what "healthy eating" means to me.

I Recently retired and just turned 70 years old. Shedding a little weight will help me enjoy life even more. Now there is time to read, do crafts, spend more time with the little children and do some volunteer work. I live in a Senior citizen complex in a small rural town in upstate NY.
