Hello....I live in the Denver, Colorado metro area. I am 51 and a widow with 2 grown sons. My oldest flew the nest 6 years ago and my youngest is still living with me. I also have a son in heaven. I am owned by 4 cats.

My dietician suggested Sparkpeople to me to help me along my weight loss journey. I joined about 10 days ago and I am loving it here.

I began to gain weight after the loss of my husband when I was 32. Part of it was not caring anymore and the other part In was tired of men hitting on me. Little did I know then is that little by little I was losing myself along the way.

At my highest weight I needed to lose 100 pounds. I joined Weight Watchers a year ago and since beginning the journey there I have lost 27 pounds. My long term goal is to lose another 73 pounds.

I have quite a few health conditions that most of the time makes exercise difficult. I have started out with just taking walks when I can. I found chair exercises here on Sparkpeople and I am so excited that I found them. There is still hope for me to reach my long term goal..

    Thank you for your comment on my blogs
    I was feeling a little down reimagining the holidays in our new normal.
    Then my broken glasses limited my reading online.

    Then I read your blog today. Oh no! This is such a unpredictable, dangerous virus.
    Hoping and praying for your complete recovery.

    Everyone of those covid denying, mask resisting, "it's no big deal" people should be hanging there heads in shame. Sadly, they don't know shame. Too busy ridiculing those taking precautions.

    Tonight our county Board of Supervisors is voting on a resolution to REQUIRE that NON MASKED people be admitted to stores and public areas. I feel like I am living in Crazyland.
