I NEED this....

I am 44 years old. Mother of a gorgeous 14-year-old daughter. I Love Fall, Halloween, Winter, and Cats! :) Been married 22 years. In 2004 I lost 85 lbs. From a size 22 to 10! I kept it off all this time until recently. I had some anxiety issue and starting taking something for that... then had partial knee replacement... now have gained 36#'s back and it won't stop coming on.... I need focus and motivation....and to figure if my pills are not helping....

Thank you guys!! Honestly it was GREAT to see responses... It was like pulling teeth to get a sec to come on but that is also a part I want to maintain is checking in and following through!! Soooooo..... today I added swimming... my daughter is a swimmer and wanted to quit.... I told her she couldn't and instead have decided to add swimming with her as an additional exercise! We swam for an hour!! And instead of waiting till I made everyone breakfast .... I went to Snap first for 30 mins... and then came home and made breakfast!! And have talked to my daughter about setting goals with me.... and we are going to do a plank challenge and squat challege.... A little of ALL the great advice I got here.... One day down... onto the next!

I do have a fitbit zip and I also walk over 10,000 steps a day! I try to never falter on that. I do need strength training more though!

Thanks and keep throwing out the ideas and support!! I LOVE it! emoticon

When I got stuck, I started doing strength training. Not anything formal, just pushups, situps and squats - the stuff you don't need any equipment to do. Also, planks are a good core strengthening exercise. Adding that got me headed back down after my weight got "stuck." Adding muscle mass increases your resting metabolic rate, but it doesn't give you a "free pass" to eat anything you want. Keep the food real - as fresh and unprocessed as possible.

I saw on the 40 something's team that you needed help. I am seemingly stuck in the same spot also. I say seemingly, like it really isn't the case, lol.
I know I need to eat less and move more. Now I just have to do it.

I so understand I had lost 40 pounds but gained back 10 and was working on gaining 15 so i played up and down for two years!
So now I have started to go to water aerobics twice a week and walking 3 miles twice a week and a slower 30 minute walk three to five days. I have been making changes and it takes a while to see the effects but my friends are telling me I have more energy and appear thinner.

I love the link to the video... introduction to your START page
