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.

    Be proud of your progress and keep taking steps forward no matter how small. You’ll eventually reach your full potential and you’ll look back on the days you thought you’d never make it, and you’ll smile, and be so proud that you never gave up on yourself.

    I also love the paranormal shows! We have gone to groups to meet several of the people. We even met Josh Gates once! And some of the Ghost Hunters! In July we are spending the entire weekend at Bellaire House in Ohio. We are hoping for lots of activity - since we are sleeping there for 2 nights, Will let you know how it goes! Heather
