|Motivation||calling out to women 50+||Apr 20 2012
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?
