I joined Sparkpeople in April 2010 and lost about 12 pounds to reach my goal weight in about 2 months. I've been through periods when I'm very active on SparkPeople, and other periods when I'm not.

I've been through some life stuff the past 5 years or so. Diagnosed with thyroid nodules, I've had a few episodes of depression, and since my Mom passed away in 2018 I've had bouts with panic attacks and anxiety. My younger son has some behavioral issues which we've been trying to get to the bottom of for quite some time.

I'm very thankful to have a very supportive group of friends, and also very thankful that I really enjoy exercise (cardio!). It's challenging for me to not overdo things and get injured. I also don't really enjoy weight training, but I know it's important for strong bones, good metabolism, and my father in law swears it helps his blood glucose! So I try to pay attention to keeping things moderate, and also incorporating weight training.

I really enjoy reading SparkPeople success stories. While I'm not overweight according to doctor's guidelines, I'm heavier than I was when I felt healthy and strong. So I will keep on trying and keep on tracking.

    Thank you for reading my blog “Remember When Exercise was Fun” and sharing your own memories. I hope you can find something your son enjoys so he can develop a love of movement to carry over into adulthood.

    After reading your blog and now your info, I had a flashback to my much younger self.

    However, you are wiser than I. While I considered myself fit, I didn't run a step until our daughter joined the track team in HS. I wanted to see how far I could run. Lasted 15 seconds. I got serious after that.

    All my races have been cancelled too. I will do 2 virtual ones if only to support the organizations who sponsor them.

    Thank you for reading my blog. All those small steps add up.
    As I continue to explore Spark, I’m finding new information as well as some that I had forgotten. All have value.
