I'm new and we are the same age. I have many of the thoughts you have, but my kids are gone. Hard to believe that made it worse. The weight gain began when my oldest left. She really kept me going!
My need to lose weight has become critical, not because of physical health issues, but because of what it has done to my mental health.
