The second half of 2020 has been chaotic with many new medical issues going on. Learning to find my new normal in the midst of it all. I'm a 56 year old female, trying to lose weight and get healthier and more active. I lost 50 lbs in 2009, but I have about 30 pounds left to lose to reach my goal. Would love to find friends to share struggles and triumphs with. I have really enjoyed being involved on Spark People and meeting so many wonderful people both online and in person! Our local SparkPeople group meets for coffee, races, shopping,etc. the friendships I have made here are incredible ❤️ I am a HUGE Washington Capitals fan and Redskins fan!
