Hi

This is a a great site, with fantastic people to support you. Before joining, I was trying to watch what I ate, but couldn't bring myself to exercise. Gradually over the last month, I've been doing simple exercises to get myself started. Tried touching my toes, 5 times and walking for 5 minutes. Now I am up to doing a lot more and have gradually added more exercises and more repetitions.

You can do it too.

Hi There!
Congratulations on addressing your issues. Life stages present enough challenges along the way and the weight issues sneak up on us! I love this site because it helps you rethink your eating habits which tend to bite us in the butt when we aren't paying attention. One day at a time and pretty soon you will look back and say, "Did I really eat like that?"
Best wishes on your journey!
Nora

Age and pounds have slowly crept up on me, but the pounds are something I can actually do something about. I never really had to watch my weight or what I ate until I hit 42 and then my metabolism just stopped. I kept doing what I had always been doing, eating and drinking what I wanted and not exercising much and now I look awful which makes me feel awful. My daughter kept telling me to check out and join this site and today I finally did. Can't wait to find my old self!

I can do it. You can do it too. Make your life happen. Don't let it happen.
