I am a 58 year old who has had weight issues for most of my life (actually Mom used to say I was the cutest little butterball - so I would say all my life) I have had some successes, but they were temporary.
This time I hope to make it a lifestyle, to overcome the momentary failures, and keep moving forward - as I read here two steps forward and one step back is still forward motion, as long as you don't give up!
UPDATE! Guess who gave up!%^&%$%^ -
So now I am a 67 year old -who had enormous success with Sparkpeople in 2010, losing 70 pounds - and then I got cocky/lazy (gads- I don't know what it was!!!) and quit trying, quit caring (quit caring enough) but I am back! I was watching a you tube video last night about an 80+ year old who started working out late in life, and now she lifts weights - her body looks no older than 45, and she is strong!!!! Her message is that anyone can do it and it is NEVER too late
Please pray for me - send good thoughts my way - I will do the same for all of you!

    Thanks for the comment. One of these times I'm going to learn to not completely throw away all of my progress. Hopefully this time!

    We get out of it what we put into it, right? You can do it!

    Hi, Judy,

    Thanks for your comment on my June Weigh-in & Goals blog. I'm glad that I have inspired you to set goals. I started with little ones that I knew I could accomplish - like reading scripture before checking my email or Facebook on my phone. With each little success, I built confidence that I could do more.

    I loved reading about you on your Spark Page - you are a hoot! I love ALL of your goals - especially the one about being a health old lady who acts like she's 30!!! YOU inspire me!
