I have been overweight and obese all my life and now want to become healthy the right way. You can't teach an old dog new tricks and I want to change that phrase. I'm 76

    Thank you for visiting my Spark page and adding me as a friend. Oh yes, I have had no better pets and friends, as I have had with the feline variety. I can barely deal with the loss of one of them. So sorry to hear of yours. They imprint on us, and become our family and us theirs. No greater love I say. I love my cats like, if they were my children. I have added you as a friend, hope to see you again! Thanks, MJ

    Thank you for adding me as a friend Joan . . . I have added you also!

    It's mid-week, how are you doing? We have a streak going on one of my teams and that has been a tremendous help to me and other members! Doing it together really is great!

    It's always nice to see Canadians on here!

    All the best to you on your healthy lifestyle journey!

    I just added you as a friend, too. I notice we are the same age. I'm sort of grateful to be still alive, but this getting older is a bummer. If you've read my blogs, though, you know that exercise has helped me feel more fit than I was in college. Even though my body worked much better then, I have a lot more stamina now. Exercise is for me.

    Good luck on your journey. Congratulations on your well-defined goals.

    Your friend,
