Fit Before 60

When I was approaching 50, I said "before I'm 50, I want gastric bypass to shed this weight." i did have the surgery when I was 49, and was successful in keeping off most of the 155 pounds I lost that year. However, over the last 3 years, almost half of it has crept back on (some caused by medication I take for anxiety and depression). Now, I'm 59 and caring for my 74 year old mother.

When I was approaching 50, I said "before I'm 50, I want gastric bypass to shed this weight." i did have the surgery when I was 49, and was successful in keeping off most of the 155 pounds I lost that year. However, over the last 3 years, almost half of it has crept back on (some caused by medication I take for anxiety and depression). Now, I'm 59 and caring for my 74 year old mother. She needs to lose weight for her back problems and to avoid being bedridden prematurely. I need to be healthy and to lose weight, in order to care for her when that time may come. So, now my new goal is to be healthy and thinner again, before I reach 60. We've been going to a gym and watching our weight for 7 weeks now. Like some, we've reached a plateau and it can be quite discouraging. We're both keeping a food diary and I have a blog on my website ( www.ItsAllCajun.com). I used SparkPeople years ago and had a tough time sticking with my commitment back then. But this time I am very serious and am here for the valuable tools provided here.
