Hi - I live in West Michigan. My doc turned me onto Sparkpeople. I have lost 47 pounds so far thanks to the power of SP. I once heard that when you hit 40 your metabolism drops to that of a hibernating bear. I can tell you first hand that quitting smoking is no help either! As I age I have went through many phases. First I could eat anything I wanted and stayed thin. In my 30's I had to begin to excercise. Now in my 40's I have to excercise and eat low calorie meals. After quitting smoking in June I had to up my excercise because I was gaining weight. I worry about how I will keep in shape once I get to 50.
I have learned that staying healthy is a full time job. The positive side is that it is a rewarding job. It feels so good to wear a bikini at this age. My husband thinks I am hot and more important is that I feel great.
I really have to thank SP for keeping me accountable. Logging my food is the so powerful. It helps me stay the course.
