Losing After Menopause

I'm a mother of 3 grown children, 1 granddaughter and another grandchild expected in June 2014. In my late 50's and since closing my brick and morter business almost 7 years ago, getting no exercise. Needless to say my butt has grown the size of my chair.

I've been a Realtor in Silicon Valley for over 22 yrs. and as I get back into it more and more, I'm more and more conscious of my health and my weight. 2 yrs. ago we moved to Palm Desert, and I am fastly becoming a 'desert rat'. ...

I've dieted off and on my whole life. I've put it on and taken it off more times... This time I'm starting slow, changing habits first, then I'll worry about becoming more structured in my weight loss efforts.

Member Since: 12/27/2007

SparkPoints: 17,606

Fitness Minutes: 2,638

My Goals:
I would like to lose approx. 70 lbs. for the last time. I would like to be an older, sexier, skinnier senior.
I would like to improve my health to last to a ripe old age, so I can keep up with my new grandchildren and great nephews and niece. LOL

My Program:
I am changing habits slowly trying to make them last for a life time. I'm hoping to just start with the baby steps, leading to more of a structured plan of action later. Already I can see just the difference going back to tracking is making.

Personal Information:
Originally from Penn. I have been in Calif. so long I may as well be native. I've lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since moving here when I was just 16 and heavy.

I have 3 grown up children that I adore, am caregiver to my mother who lives with us, and significant other to a very good roommate.


Other Information:
I don't get much chance to watch movies or anything. I do a lot of online self education for the businesses I own and for self improvement (I need quite a bit. LOL)
Music of choice is country, easy listening, and oldies but goodies.
TV- I love comedy, lighthearted stuff, and good sitcoms where I don't have to think.

Just stopping by to say hi. I do agree, it is harder to lose as we get older. Crazy hormones, creaky joints, slower metabolism - sometimes it seems just looking at or smelling the aroma of food adds pounds! I am now trying (not yet successfully) to make the change from dieting to lifestyle change. I don't want to be measuring and recording every bite I eat for the rest of my life! Some how that doesn't seem natural. I am attempting to learn how to chose to eat when I am hungry as opposed to when something looks or smells good, fairly easy on a good day, not so easy when I'm stressed out about life!

Hi, Came across your Sparkpage after reading a comment you left about the GI diet and saw we have a number of things in common. I am also a mother of 3, am in my early 50's, we sold our business which kept me on my feet and moving 4 years ago and now I work from home, get far less exercise and have added pounds. Like you I am originally from the northeast (NJ); we now live in FL. Hope you have a great day, enjoyed reading your "use a laugh" blog. Cheryl
