Motivation calling out to women 50+ Apr 20 2012
19:44 (UTC)

Hi - I am so grateful to have found this thread - always battled with weight but I used to be able to lose some of it - since hitting my 50's it is an uphill battle.  I'm 55 going on 56.  I exercise and eat in a more healthy way than I ever have done and yet I am hugely overweight.  I lose a pound or two and then it seems my body fights to put it back on.   I stay more or less the same but its heavy I am 5 ft 5 in and I weigh 228 lbs.   I will start over again today recording my calories and exercise - I found it gave me awareness and helped me make better choices.  I then weighed myself - got depressed and stopped the whole process - but here goes to starting over.  Think no more scale - just body measurements going forward.  

 I have joined an Aquarobics class for the last few months and it has helped greatly with a very bad knee and other aches and pains and I really enjoy the warm water but I am WIPED OUT after the classes for the rest of the day. Anyone with any advice here?

Really need a penpal to walk this walk with me?

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
