Updated 2019 -I am a retired Naval Officer. My husband and I moved to Montana from Hawaii in 1996. We live 11 miles outside of a town with a population of 96 in cattle and sheep ranch country. I garden and like computer games. I have had to give up knitting and needlepoint because of arthritis in my hands. There are no fitness clubs or facilities near by-the school gym has a weight room but very old equipment. I have a Wii Fit and a Golds Gym bike which I need to use. I like walking but winter around here makes it a little difficult. I also have COPD which sometimes limits my exercise. I have always struggled with weight. Since 2000, I have gained an average of 4 pounds per year. Now it all and more has to come off so I can be around to enjoy my children and grandchildren. I was with Fat Secret for a long time and got bored. I love SP. Since I started with SP I lost 25 pounds and then I gained it all back. Knowing I can do it is important. At age 68, it gets harder to lose and especially to get the exercise. I do get some walks in. I mostly exercise inside. My biggest challenge is over eating. My husband is on a 3 meal a day schedule when I would like to be on a 2 meal per day.My journey to weighing 175 pounds is started as of 9/1/2017.

My Goals:
Lose 74 pounds to goal weight of 175 for my health especially the high cholesterol, GERD and COPD.


My Program:
Because of where I live, I am on my own diet. I find tracking food and exercise helps as well as having a support group.



Personal Information:
I was born in Massachusetts, went to high school in Dobbs Ferry, NY, College at Connecticut College in New London Connecticut. After living and working around Boston, I joined the Navy and went to Newport Rhode Island then to Norfolk, Virginia, to Adak, Alaska, to Virginia Beach, VA, then to Hawaii.


Other Information:
I have 2 children and 5 grandchildren.

    Enjoyed looking through your blogs and page ! I live in rural Illinois on the Mississippi River. Our town has 700 people and services are a drive. But it is beautiful and I enjoy my home.
    I am 70 and in good health but my husband is experiencing some health problems. I could relate to you and your friends ! Have a good week.
