Nifty at Fifty?

Hi,
I have really packed on the pound this past decade! It went by so fast, and now I can hardly recognize myself.
I have been at an extremely sedentary job for the past 5 years, and stopped playing tennis due to back injury. These and the usual hormonal/ age related changes have all combined to create the "new me." (Did I mention stress.....?)
It seems much harder now to lose weight, but I'm not liking the alternative. I hope the support and accountability ...

It seems much harder now to lose weight, but I'm not liking the alternative. I hope the support and accountability of Sparkpeople will help to change the "new me" back into the fitter, more user-friendly version of myself. Turning fifty in May is a big motivator, too.

Wishing everyone the best!

Check out the article I found...Foods that burn calories. It's on my page in a blog.

I have been maintaining this weight for about two years...before that I just continued to climb. I am hoping the summer will help me work on getting in the downward mode. I am exercising more and watching my food even more closely. If I could just relieve the stress!

What are you doing? I use my Wii Coach and Wii Fit programs. I do yoga in the morning for 10 minutes...since I leave for work at 5:30 that is all I can manage. Then evenings I try to do at least 15-20 minutes of aerobic exercise. That's my minimum but there are days when I can't even do that. I leave home at 5:30 AM and return at 5:30 PM so it gets hard to fit it in. I'm so tired.

Hey...we're in the same place---about---and I know what you mean. It's hard once you hit 50. Let's support each other & get this done.

Hi, Cinjopen.
I saw your message on the mental plateau blog.
So sorry to hear about your ankle but congratulations on taking on accelerated nursing training. Good for you!
Maybe your ankle down time could be "best-ever abs and arms time." Working on your core strength will be very beneficial in the nursing world.
And having great arms -- well, probably very good for the ego!
Mine are like jellied bat wings right now but that will change.
Be encouraged!
