Hi - I'm Carol and turned 60 in Jan.- and just celebrated my 10th wedding anniversary on Fri. ( married the right guy this time...) I eat and cook healthily usually and exercise, but have been finding that the slowed metabolism due to menopause has made it very difficult to lose weight. I'm 5'3" and weigh 134 lbs. and want to lose 5 lbs. Some of my friends think I'm crazy, but I remember what I looked like when I weighed 124 lbs. 6 years ago when I went on Weight Watchers. I kept it off fr 3 years, but it's been creeping back on ever since I moved from CA to GA and I don't like it! I'm not much of a "joiner", but SparkPeople sounds interesting and I love seeing my points (except when they're too high...) in black and white - it really makes a difference. I'm a good cheerleader, and I see the results that diet/controlled eating and exercise make, so I hope I can motivate others and make a difference in myself too.

The line "Vanity, thy name is woman" is a misquote from Shakespeare's play, Hamlet...the actual line is "Frailty, thy name is woman" - but was HE ever wrong...!

    Wow! It's been a while since I've been on SparkPeople!...I actually got up to 137.5 lbs. after I got a bulging disc in my neck and couldn't exercise - not even walk - without numbness and tingling in my right hand and arm. Fortunately, my Dr. referred me to a magician of a physical therapist and 6 months later I was back to normal...just heavier...;-] I started walking and playing golf again, but the weight didn't come off - and I believe the hormones I was taking was a factor.

    I finally changed my eating program when I developed vertigo and lost my appetite due to the dizziness...I wouldn't recommend this method, but what I discovered as a result is that I reduced my portions and was satisfied. I eat yogurt with nuts and granola for breakfast, some sort of protein for lunch (maybe leafy greens and tuna salad), and fish with veggies and salad for dinner - and I've cut out late night snacks ever since we got a new cat...I'd rather watch her and knit than eat while watching TV! I usually have a snack of light string cheese with WASA bread and some almonds and green tea around 4:00 pm since we don't eat dinner till quite late (my husband's work and workout schedule - and he's in great shape!) Anyway, I'm back to 130.5-131.5 and feel great - and have decided I don't need to weight 129 lbs... emoticon
