Hi everyone, I am a 65 year old returning Sparkpeople follower. I had a lot of upheaval in my life over the past several years and so let my account lie dormant for a while. Things have settled down somewhat, (ignoring the upheaval that Covid has created for us all...) with a move almost a year ago to Manitoulin Island. I have not been able to be as active as I planned since arriving here, as most activities have been cancelled because of Covid restrictions. This area has been in lockdown now twice, with only a one week break between where we had hoped to move into the yellow or green area.

I did manage to lose 10 pounds since arriving but now that seems to have ground to a halt. Yesterday I did take my new to me bike out for a spin, to see how my arthritic knees and hip would fare, thankfully today they are no worse for it so I do plan to bike a lot more. My goal there right now is to make the ride to my sisters about 5 km from here, to visit once the lockdown lifts. Sadly today it has been raining all day so no outside time for me, and its supposed to rain for the next three as well. Hard to get any walking or biking in when water is streaming down the roads.

I don't get much exercise when I am quilting or trying to paint, but I do run around a lot after the little one year old that I babysit during the week for about 4 hours at a time. I do plan to take long walks with her but of course she does not keep a steady pace if walking as everything is new to her.

My goals here are to get back to eating healthy, have more veggies, and to become more active. Weight wise I hope to get down to 150 as my first goal, from there I will see if I need to lose more weight. By losing the weight I know my knees will stop hurting and I will likely have less issues with my hip as well.

Like a butterfly, I am shedding my cocoon, to emerge a bright new me!

My name is Charlene. I live in Rochester, NY. Ill be 72 years old this October. Ill be married 50 years come September. I have 1 son who is married with 3 children. My DH & I share the babysitting duties for all three with the other set of grandparents. I am originally from NYC (born, raised and lived there most of my life). Moved up to Rochester, NY about 11 years ago, when my husband retired (he was kinda forced to retire medical emergency which eventually worked out just fine). We purchased our very first home here in Rochester.

I too have a lot of weight to lose. In fact, I recently gained back 66 lbs of what I had lost. How does this manage to happen????

I try to follow a low carb way of eating. That was how I had lost a lot of my weight. While eating low carb, not only did I lose the weight, but my body got smaller and smaller just about every week. Back surgery threw me off track and obviously I kept on chugging down the railroad (gained lots of weight).

When I first saw this group, I didnt realize it was for people over 60 years old I thought it was for 60s rock n roll music LOL!

Hi, My name is Leann - I will turn 60 in August - am I too early to join this team???? LOL Hope not. I've been on SP for some time now. Started out good, lost some weight, then quit logging in my food and exercise. I've been back and more consistent for the past year or so. I've lost some more weight, but, boy oh boy it comes off s-l-o-w-l-y now! emoticon

I started leading a Zumba class in TX (my DH and I go for the winters) and then spend summers in Northern WI - out in the woods! Trying to continue with the Zumba, but life, in general, seems to keep getting in the way!

I've got 1 son, 1 step-son, 2 step-daughters and between all of those 10 grand children. All kids are married.

Hoping to get a bit more motivated by a team in my age range! Would like to lose about 10 more pounds - and I know that may not seem like a lot, but I am only 5' tall and so any extra weight is very noticeable!

Hi, I am Deb. I am 62 years old, married for 41 years last month, have 3 children with spouses, and two grandchildren. I am lucky in that they all live near me in the Pittsburgh, PA area.

I have been on SP for 11 years and after a big loss and almost as big a gain, I am still very far from my goal. I need to lose just under 200 pounds. I just reset my trackers today and feel very fortunate to have been invited to this team.

Hi...I'm Terry and looking for help in losing this weight...I'm 63. and it seems the weight just does not wan to come off...it's so frustrating!!!
I am interested in a holistic lifestyle, using herbs and essential oils instead of all those chemical based products...I recently bought the book, The Essential Oils diet", by Dr Eric Zielinski and his wife Sabrina....I've heard good things about this one (and...so many others)...however, this one tells how to transform your bad habits and chose better ones...here goes!
I'm looking forward to working with all of you...I'm here if you ever need me!

Hello everyone, I'm Sue from the south coast of the UK. I joined SP many years ago and have used it on and off to watch my health. I'm retired now, and have less stress and more time to look after myself. So I'm hoping to get involved in SP again, as I have found it so useful and supportive over the years.

I'm a mother to two and grandmother to one. We are lucky to live in a pretty part of the country with lots of places to walk and cycle, plus I have a couple of swimming pools very near me. So I have no excuses! Looking forward to joining in with the team.

Hello everyone. I'm Liz, I live in Seattle and I am 62. I have been off of SparkPeople for at least the last 5 years. I lost 40 pounds way back in 2007 and kept it off for about 5 years. It has crept back up and I decided it was time to be serious about being at a healthy weight and fitness level. I work full time as a paralegal, I have two grown children - one in Detroit and one 5 hours away. I take care of my 95 year old mother's finances and medical issues. She lives in an independent living retirement home but may need memory care soon as dementia is progressing.

It is very important to me to get back to feeling good about myself, and I believe I can achieve that through taking care of myself and my own needs -- which I tend to disregard. So, I am focusing on self-care right now, which includes healthy eating and getting out to walk at least 30 minutes every day. Discontinuing walking really contributed to me gaining back the 40 pounds previously lost. I truly enjoy going on long walks but I have had problems with Morton's neuroma and it became (and at times still is) painful to walk very far. So, I've gotten orthotics for my shoes and bought the expensive healthy-foot shoes (always over $100), and I am on my way. Today was day 5 of walking at least 30 minutes.

I'm looking forward to interacting with you all.

Hi my name is Joyce, been a member of sparks since 2013, but only became active in 2014.
I recently cut back on some of the teams I am on because it became too time consuming, I spent more time on computer then need be. Found this one and thought it would be fun and not demanding. I am 76, and in good health. I am married to a great guy, we have been married 55 years, have 3 adult children, 10 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren and 2 more expected in August and Sept. Sparks has been a great help to me.

Janpatsy my mom had dementia she lived with us before it came too much and we had to move her fo a care facility. I know what you are experiencing.

My husband has mycosis fungoides for years and when he went to a new dermatologist he said he should have radiation treatments to get it under complete control. The creams he was given does contain it (form of rare skin cancer that attacks skin from inside out) but makes skin dry and very thin. His skin is tissue thin. He has been taking treatments for about 1-1/2 months and there has been great improvement. We go twice a week to Coos Bay, about a hour drive each way.

Faith is our power to know there can be no true unhappiness or disappointment when the Divine is at work.

I haven't been here much for almost 4 years. In that time I lost my mom, my son, and 2 cats who were my babies. And I have moved twice. (I'm in my forever home now.) I have not been taking care of myself like I use to. I haven't been able to "get in gear". I usually like to start a "new plan" at the beginning of the month, or at least on a Monday but I am going to start tomorrow. I generally eat healthy, but I do not get much exercise. I'll weigh myself tomorrow morning and see if I can remember how to put it on that little ticker thing! I probably won't track my food but I will track my exercise. Look forward to communicating with everyone.

Hi - I am a new Spark member; joined w/in the last couple of weeks. Need to lose 40 pounds; maybe 50 if things work out well. I will be 60 in a few weeks and really like the idea of working with a group of folks my age - we get each other and understand where we are in life.

I live in Maine - we are on the cusp of Fall and have had fantastic weather this Summer - the leaves are starting to turn - very pretty. I truly enjoy being independent and want to stay that way as long as possible; hence the desire to lose weight and strength train. Happy week-end everyone. :)

Joined Spark 10 years ago - it's helped me take responsibility for my actions: haven't lost weight, but I haven't gained, either. Love the Recipes section and have built a lot in it. I'm a mother of two young men, 25 and 23. Youngest still lives with me - he has Mosaic Down's and is quite a capable young man. He keeps me going with his social groups and Special Olympics. We bowl once a week, walk as often as we can at the Plymouth State University track, see lots of old movies, get to Squam Lakes Science Center when we can. Looking forward to getting my own life back as he learns to get started living on his own with others. I still need to lose 5 pounds before August comes, too. emoticon

New to this team and back to SparkPeople. I joined Spark soon after it was created years ago. I lost 30 pounds and met some wonderful women who I am still in contact with.

My doctor put me on a new diabetes medication (Tresiba) and it has caused me to gain 8 pounds in 3 month. Tracking and belonging to a team is the only thing that works for me.

I'm enjoying my 60's and hope to enjoy my 70's and 80's.

New team member here but not new to Spark People. My name is Judy. I call myself Harrowjet because I live in Harrow (Ontario, Canada) and my initials before I was married were JET - J(udith) E(leanor) T(heal).

I am well over 60 and trying to act like a well 60. (weak attempt at humor) emoticon

Although I have been a Spark for 13 years, I have never reached goal. I have eliminated 35 pounds and kept them off but I can't seem to get the momentum moving again in the right direction to get rid of the rest. emoticon emoticon Let's DO it!!

Hi! emoticon
I'm Andee - aka YelLoW RoSeS - PuRPLe HeaRTS (long story behind that) emoticon

I'm 60 this month. It's not at all what I expected it would be!
I've raised 6 kids - all with assorted special needs. All making a go of living independently now. One more still with me, but only for a few more months.
Then what? IDK emoticon
I've been on SP emoticon since April 2006.
Divorced since July 1999 (2 mos shy of 20th wedding anniv.)
Currently existing on govt disability (b/c I didn't work enough after marriage) dealing with multiple health & disability issues since breaking free of decades of abuse of all kinds.

My life is finally at a point where I think emoticon I can begin doing more of what is good for ME, of interest to ME, and will be good. Now to figure out exactly what that is!
Life may have been rough to this point but I'm going to be ROCKING the 60's!!! emoticon

Andee
Eating RIGHT 4 ME!
T-Tapp! Walking!
Always be grateful for something each day!
Embracing life's changes!

Good Morning, Ladies! Thank you for your welcome! I've been a Spark member for years, but have not visited in a LONG time. I've renewed my determination! This is my 4th day. I still slipped up the 2nd day with the calories, but did lots of exercise. I will see you on the other boards!

Welcome, Karen..if you're concerned about those 10 lbs., I think I've found them emoticon I guess you don't want them back. But I do hope you'll have a good time with us on this site.

Hello,
I am from Texas and a long time Sparker. I enjoy the support and fun of a group. I am currently trying to lose the 10 pounds which I lose and gain back every 2 years or so. LOL.
Thanks for having me.

Decided to edit my post and shorten it considerably.
My name is Chris and I am a medically retired registered nurse. Looking for someone to exchange menus with for 1-2 people. We are empty nesters. Prefer menus 1200-1700 calories and 3 meals plus 1-2 snacks daily.

Hi there from the Pacific Northwest! My name is Wendy and I just turned 60 in May....and I am "Still Rockin It"! Lol!!! I'm a Mom, a Grandma, a Sister, an Aunt, a Niece,and a Friend of many. I am a single woman and am past the point that I want a spouse again. I love to walk, hike, garden, read, and do crafts, especially Native American beadwork. I am still working, but will be able to retire at 62. I was originally hired to run the garden dept. 5 yrs. ago, but after a serious injury to my right hand last year, I only fill in now. I mostly work in fabric and crafts and am occasionally on the register. I am very outgoing so it is a perfect place for me! Since the first of the year I have changed my lifestyle, have dropped 56 lbs. and have completely reversed my diabetes. I still have a long way to go! Hope this finds all of you having a great day!

Hi, I am Marti. I turned 60 this year and also I retired from my school nurse job this May. Now that I have the extra time, I want to focus on me with keeping me healthy, including getting my weight under control. I'm looking forward to conversing with others in my age group and sharing inspiration and gaining motivation as I start this journey.

Good Afternoon, I am new to this team, but not to spark, was on here a long time ago. A lot of things has changed and I am getting myself familiar with all that is available to me. So glad I came back. I hope to meet some nice friends once again. God bless everyone with a great day.

My name is Debbie and I'm 61. I want to be around long enough to retire but health problems might be interferring with my plans if I dont' start to get them under control now. It's nice to see age-appropriate groups on SparkPeople to help get me motivated.

Hi, I'm Dorthy and just joined this team today. I have been a Sparker for exactly 1 year and have decided to drop some boards that are essentially dead and join some new (to me), more active boards. I think I will have a good time here.

I am almost 64, have been married over 41 years to my best friend, am retired and have 2 grown unmarried sons - 1 lives with us and the other will be moving back home soon. I craft a lot. I make cards, scrapbook occasionally, knit, crochet, and read fiction. I love all kinds of art, know little about it, but still am jealous of and admire the talents of the people who can create it. I have become the team leader of Papercrafters message board and am working to keep it alive.

I joined Spark after a Double bypass and subsequent infection in late 2015, early 2016. I've been diagnosed diabetic for 10 years and ignored it for 8 years. I joined Spark because I want to control some of my problems. I lost 40 pounds in the last 12 months and probably need to lose 30 more pounds. Still need support and motivation as I am prone to not recording what I eat.

Hi,
Carl T here. I've been a member for a couple years and recently turned 60.

I am dealing with Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and high uric acid; but man am i feeling good! My weights down to 200 from 220 and I'm headed for 190. I'm working with a functional medicine nutritionist and "letting my food be my medicine". Went from a meat eater to a vegetarian and working on vegan sometime in the future.

Glad to be part of the group. Looking forward to chatting with folks.

Hi, I'm Sue of Seattle and have been a Spark member for a few years. I'm already a member of the over 60's team and was looking for another active team. After a lot of searching, it's the 60's plus group that is consistently active. Go figure. Looking forward to "meeting" more of you. I already recognize a few members of the over 60's team so I know I'm in good company.

Hi I am new here. Trying to find a group where I could make friends with and also people who understand what I am going through. I am 62 years old, married but separated. I have two cats IPod (age 6) and Snickers (age 4), they keep me company. As I am typing IPod (who is my big baby) is right here with me as I type. Right now my main goal is to lose to under 200 pounds, that makes me need to lose 25 pounds. When I reach that goal, I will go to my next goal.

I am new. Just joined this group. I live in Saugatuck, Michigan. Just turned 69. I started this latest weight loss journey in July at 198.8. I am at 181 today. Exercise is no problem for me. I go to class at the gym 3 days a week, and walk the dog regularly. (I try for 30 minute walks.) Eating is a problem, especially at night, but lately I have been doing pretty well with control. I'm glad I found this group. We can be great support for each other. Today is the first day I've been on this site on my computer. I've been using the phone app, and didn't know about all the great features. I love SparkPeople.

emoticon I was looking for a group for my age as we share some of the same struggles. Someone once said, "Growing Old is not for Sissy's". We do face a lot of challenges as we get older. What caught my eye about this age group is "Still Rocking It". That is how I feel. Age is just a number , my birthday is Christmas and my number will be 65. I live in Monroe, Michigan . I am single but I do have a special someone in my life . He is 18 years older than I am and he is still rocking it. We go dancing a few times a month and have a lot of fun together.
I am looking forward to getting to know the people on this team and give and receive support as we try to improve our lives.

It will be climbing the stairs in my own home which I try to do for health reasons and I will be accountable to you as a team for that I need to do do it. It is 9:18 in the morning where I like in Acworth, Georgia. I saw that was one of your questions. A couple of you have welcomed me to the team and I thank you.

emoticon Nola here. New to this group! Started SP on July 21, 2014. I had started out with 30 pounds to lose, but I have met that and I've changed it to 50 pounds. I am very motivated to lose another 10 to 15 pounds and then maintain.. I love music, riding/camping with my horse Charlie Brown, playing my guitar and reading! I love life and what God has to offer. I have been married for nearly 12 years and I live in Chiefland, FL. I have four dogs, one cat, and Charlie Brown! I love all the support and encouragement on this site and all the new Spark Friends I've met! This is definitely a great website to be involved in! emoticon emoticon

Hello
I was looking for a team that my age would fit because we sometimes have unique weight and diet problems. Whew that is too fancy for me. Okay, they call me Jim and I live in Florida withnmy wife/ domestic partner of 18 years and our two lhasa apsas, zack and zoe. We met online about 19 years ago on the old bulletin boards. Cape cod yankee meets southern cracker and it is fantastic. Hope to be active on the boards. I love to cook and tend my garden. We both like online books and love the internet. Hope to have a fun and learning time on this team.

Hi everyone,
I'm 64 years old, married to my best friend, Buddy. I live in rural Georgia.
Was very happy to see this team as active, as there are quite a few that aren't.....I really think it is important to have some support when losing weight.
Looking forward to meeting you all.

Hi!
I saw this group and it sounded like me :)
I'm 61 years old, married two wonderful daughters and an awesome 4 month old granddaughter. I work full time. I'm a serial yoyo dieter who has lost 90-100 lbs three times :(
I guess I'm a food addict with a tendency to binge. I have about 10-15 lbs left to lose that I put on over the last couple of years. Stress is a big trigger for me and there's been plenty.
I want to be able to indulge but learn to do it in moderation and not go off the deep end.
I love to walk and i walk at least 2 miles every day some on the treadmill and some with my dog Riley;
I'm a pet lover with a dog and two cats. I've done WW for years and have a love/hate relationship with their programs.
I wanted to shake it up so I'm counting calories and I'm tired of paying for a program that didn't really work for someone who is older,shorter and has less to lose.
Nice to be here :)

Hi I'm new and been browsing for new teams. Some that I had been on no longer have leaders and are not active. My name is Eileen and people call me Ei or Irish Ei.
I want to lose weight and keep active. I track in a notebook and right now also on e-tools.
I exercise at least 3x a week at the gym and somedays I do other chores, babysit or use dvd's too to keep up with my fitness. Hope I can learn something new from this team and we can help each other.

I am looking for a supportive team as I go through the ups and downs of losing weight. I have the added problems of isolating (staying in my room, only going out for therapy) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Healing from these problems will help my weight as much as getting in shape will help these problems. I'm tired of the ups and downs. I want to be healthy. I've spent my entire life healthy, and since women in my family tend to live into their mid 90s, I don't want to go any further down hill than I am now.

I'm Margo, newly back to SparkPeople after a year or so's hiatus to concentrate on other projects. Now I have decided to do a little end-of-summer thing here, see how that goes.

I'll be 64 the end of October. I have the usual grab bag of miscellaneous aches and pains that go with losing estrogen :-) I have finally understood that I am not going to get my 26-year-old weight and physical body back and it is "foolish" to spend thought, emotion, and energy working in that direction. I am quite sure though that there is room for improvement in my current lifestyle (which consists mostly of sitting in front of this computer :-)
