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 grandkitty babies.

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 in 2001. At my highest weight I needed to lose 100 pounds. I joined Weight Watchers a year ago and I am on the green plan, 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!

I have joined the Biggest Loser Winter Challenge and I am on the Pink Flamingos Winter Warrior team! I hope the challenge will help motivate me as well as something to help keep me accountable.

I am also on the waiting list for the 2021 Winter 5% Challenge.

I have joined a 42 day Reset Challenge at a local gym that begins January 4th!

    emoticon For commenting on my blog today. ... emoticon emoticon I appreciate you sharing your thoughts, though, regarding your excess sleep post Covid, it seems once your body recovers, things should get back to normal--but i hope it is more than 3-4 hours a night. Balance is always good, isn't it? ... By the way, i do love your pink flamingo page--it's so bright and cheery! ..
