Hello, I got married three years ago this December. Hubby is a GREAT cook. He can eat anything and not gain weight. Me, on the otherhand, breath fat air! I had gained 10 pounds the very first year. I am now, on the way to reaching my "pre married " weight . I bought Sean T's rocking body dvd's and they are helping. I also am really watching what I eat. Biggest hurdle ? DINNER-- Hubby always cooks.

I'm born Dec of 1959. Since my 40's peri-meno has added a lb each year. Now I"m looking to lose 12 lbs. Trying low-carbing again with some modifications with lowering calories.

I was born September 1959. Coming up on my next birthday soon. Grateful that I "woke up" this year and made the commitment to be fit and healthy.

Congratulations. I, too, like seeing the success stories. I actually added a couple of pounds after I started this program but am headed back down to my original weight. I have to say that I feel very good on the program. Plus, no hot flashes. Not sure if there is a connection but I'm good with it:}

I have just started using SP and I am finding all sorts of neat thing on here.
So far I have lost 70 lbs with my lap band and then 30 lbs with WW and now 5 lbs with SP for a total of 105 lbs.
I too was born in 1959 in May and live in Ontario, Canada.
If I can be of any help, please let me know.

Born March '59, been here about 10 days. Doing Low Carb and have lost about 7 pounds, easy to lose in the beginning, I am speaking from experience. Done this a few times since the 70's actually. I AM going to stick with it this time, new way of living, not dieting! I have those hormone and thyroid issues going on as well, also dealing with major knee problems. I WILL figure it ALL out, new way to EAT and new way to MOVE! Sparkpeople is my new tool. emoticon

I was born in November 1959. I started SparkPeople 4 weeks ago. Been a bit discouraged as I've actually gained 3 pounds but have changed some hormone therapy too. At least it's not continuing to go up and I feel great. Have 15 pounds to lose. Plan to lose it even it takes a while. Hoping the scale next week is going the opposite direction:}

Yes, I was born in July of 1959. I know what you mean about it being harder to lose weight. Last year, I did lose 63 pounds, but have struggled to keep it off. I am currently working on losing 12 pounds to reach my final goal and an additional 2 pounds that I have gained back. I have been as much as 5 pounds over the original 63 pounds lost. I could use a buddy to work with, so if you are looking for a buddy to do this with, i would be happy to. It always seems easier when it feels like you aren't doing it alone. Looking forward to hearing back from you.

I was born in April 1959. And all of a sudden (last two years) everything went to hell in a hand basket with new thyroid med and other stuff. Trying to get a handle on it before it gets worse.

BTW there's a great success story for a 52-year-old woman getting fit here: "

Check out the slide show at the bottom.

I was born in March of '59. I actually used to have the same bathing suit you're wearing in your photo except mine was white. I guess that means we have a few things in common. I need to lose 20 pounds. I lost 17 with weight watchers last year but I've put 7 back on. I've got that middle age spread thing going and I am not going to let it get out of hand this time. A 20 pound weight loss goal sounds so much better than 30 pounds. I plan to reach my goal before the end of September.
