Thanks so much for your encouragement! I can't turn back time, but I can learn from the past. I know that berating myself for not making the best choices won,t help. So I am doing good today so far and I hope to have many more days like this. Thanks again! emoticon

I've had lots of ups and downs during my journey toward health and fitness. The lose of a loved one, caring for an aging parent while parenting teen-aged boys took a toll on my resolve. Eventually stress led to weight gain, digestive issues and other health problems that left me without energy, ambition or hope. Still, I managed to rally yet again and discovered that I am unable to digest gluten. Now that I have changed my diet to eliminate wheat, I am finally recovering and finding that I can be fit again after 50. So, my advice is not to ever, ever give up on yourself. Every frustration on your journey is a clue to your health and well-being. Listen carefully to what your body is trying to tell you. Love yourself. Give yourself permission to be the best you you can be.

Hi, I don't understand, the first month i did great! I lost 12lbs & as the days passed I felt it became easier. But somewhere along the way i slipped back to my old habits. I haven't gained, but of course i haven't loss any more. I am trying really hard to get back mentally to where i was, and hate the thought of being back at my 1st day again. I could use a boost. Has anyone been where i am, & if so how did they get back on track? Thanks for reading my post, good luck to all reaching their goals! emoticon
