Here's to the new me!!

I have gradually become really overweight and, now I am also getting older, the effects are making themselves felt. I am tired after not doing very much, the summer heat really gets to me and I hate shopping for clothes or even going anywhere where I have to dress up because I don't feel good about myself anymore. So I have decided enough is enough!!

Hi Shona
Welcome to this group and all the benefits that it has.
I to became overweight for me when I retired.
I think it was the combination of becoming a Widow going on HRT.
I was for a time feeling very sorry for myself so I indulged.
I went up 2 dress sizes and fast approaching 3.
I went from 50 kgs to 74kgs. That was a huge step for my body. I then started to pay for the weight gain as my body shreaked in pain.
I couldn' wear any of my shoes as the balls of my feet were so painful etc.So no way was I going to look good when I went out.
My children demanded I have a cholesterol blood test as they don't want to loose me yet.
That blood result was a big shock
cholesterol too high, blood sugars not good, kidneys not good, blood pressure eratic.
The Dr gave me a nasty talk. told me to loose weight, get fitter etc.
that was nearly 2 years ago now. Ok I havent lost all that weight but I have come down1.5 dress sizes. My blood results make the Dr smile now.
I am so much fitter and I can wearshoes again. My body is smiling at me also .

Please don't give up keep trying and inventing new ways to do so.
In many ways it is a new learning curve for as as we age, that is not a bad thing keeps the brain agile.
Talk to us all for we are here to help each other
