Hi all! I did a long SparkPage last week but it disappeared! With the help of dear Sharon, I believe I forgot to save my changes and lost it, so here we go again!

I am a relative newbie to SparkPage and it truly is what I have been looking for! I am 72 years old, and have already lost 40 pounds, then started putting a few back on, so went looking for some accountability, which is sooo helpful to me! And SparkPage truly is giving me that!

I am a retired Budget Analyst for the Federal Government but now work part-time from home on a data collection computer job - doing surveys, which I really like - NOT telemarketing!!! I love staying active so went looking for a part-time, at home job!! I am the mother on one fantastic son, a beautiful daughter-in-law, and two gorgeous grandgirls! Unfortunately they live in Wisconsin and I am in Arizona, so don't get to see them enough!!

I enjoy walking, biking, and swimming, and have set my fittness page up for three times a week, but in the short time I have been here have been able to exceed that. I try to get in one or the other every day for at least 30 minutes.

What I just realized, I haven't set up a weight tracking chart yet and I am sure there must be one on here, as I have started to lose a few more pounds! OOPS found it, so it should show up on here.

I have joined the "50+ with 25+ pounds to lose group" and, sadly, haven't been there much either, but do want to thank the girls there who so kindly welcomed me!

I am looking forward to having more time to spend with the message boards now. Just one amazing fact - at 72 that is my NATURAL hair color!! I was born with Spina Bifida and a rare Arnold-Chiari Brain Malformation, which have caused five spinal surgeries, but I got GOOD hair genes! :-)

    Hi Carol. You did a nice job on your sparkpage. Now if you want the little tracker thing to show up on your posts, just click on Edit your sparkpage, scroll down near the bottom and you can select your background and icon. Don't forget to Save when you are done.
