Hi Sassylady91,
Sorry I am just seeing your note now. I am one of the Classy 70 leaders. Due to vacation and other issues, I was going through, I had to take a 'backseat' for awhile. I hope I am back on target now.
Welcome back to Spark People and to our team.
Let me assure you that age is not against your for losing weight. Yes it is harder or should I say we might have to work harder but I am convinced with the support from your team you will make it. I struggled for years with overweight and I am still considered obese if I go by BMI. However since joining SP, I have dropped 32 lbs. which is the lightest I have been in over 20 years. The support from my Spark friends helped me tremendously.
We need each other.
Also congratulations on becoming a U.S. Citizen.
I am a citizen of your neighboring country Canada. I live on the west coast of Canada in beautiful British Columbia. I am surrounded with mountains and water.
I am a grandmother of 3 and a mother of a son & daughter. I just had the joy of spending 6 weeks with them in Sept/Oct. They live in Eastern Canada in Ontario.
I look forward to more communication with you as you sign in and share your thoughts and concerns.
Blessings
Jean (2BEATIT1)

Hi Sassy----since you didn't give us any other name is it ok if I just call you Sassy???? I hope so!!

emoticon to a GREAT team----you'll find very happy and fun people here. And many of our members are also widows so you will find kinship with them also. BUT - you are probably the only one who has been brave enough to travel thousands of miles and study all of those hours to become a US citizen. emoticon That's an awesome accomplishment.

I also have done cake decorating and made my daughters' wedding gowns' and embroidery.... so, you see we have a lot in common. But I don't read much. I had 2 eye strokes last year and can't read much any longer.

This team will support you in your weight loss journey.

Go up to the HAVE A CUPPA TEA topic and chat away with all of the team members. They'll love to talk to you.

Its wonderful that you took all those actions. You are very brave and determined. Congratulations on becoming a citizen, that's a giant leap and expensive.
Just let us know what we can do to help, and we'll be there.
I am probably older than you and I have lost 24 lbs. so far. It can definitely be done, so never, ever, quit.
Good luck and keep in touch.

I am actually re-introducing myself today. I have been here before and I am hoping that this time I will stay until the weight is gone!! I lost my husband in 1994 and in 1996 I took the bold step of moving to the USA from South Africa. I have just recently become a US citizen and am very happy about it. I do cake decorating, sewing, and embroidery. I also love to read and once my clothes fit me again (ha ha) I want to become more involved in community work. Happy to be here and I hope you will support me on this road to a slimmer self. I sometimes wonder if my age is working against me in my battle to lose weight.
