Hello, I got married three years ago this December. Hubby is a GREAT cook. He can eat anything and not gain weight. Me, on the otherhand, breath fat air! I had gained 10 pounds the very first year. I am now, on the way to reaching my "pre married " weight . I bought Sean T's rocking body dvd's and they are helping. I also am really watching what I eat. Biggest hurdle ? DINNER-- Hubby always cooks.

Hi,
I'm born Dec of 1959. Since my 40's peri-meno has added a lb each year. Now I"m looking to lose 12 lbs. Trying low-carbing again with some modifications with lowering calories.

I was born September 1959. Coming up on my next birthday soon. Grateful that I "woke up" this year and made the commitment to be fit and healthy.

Life is good, and is getting better....

Lori,
Congratulations. I, too, like seeing the success stories. I actually added a couple of pounds after I started this program but am headed back down to my original weight. I have to say that I feel very good on the program. Plus, no hot flashes. Not sure if there is a connection but I'm good with it:}

Born March '59, been here about 10 days. Doing Low Carb and have lost about 7 pounds, easy to lose in the beginning, I am speaking from experience. Done this a few times since the 70's actually. I AM going to stick with it this time, new way of living, not dieting! I have those hormone and thyroid issues going on as well, also dealing with major knee problems. I WILL figure it ALL out, new way to EAT and new way to MOVE! Sparkpeople is my new tool. emoticon

I was born in November 1959. I started SparkPeople 4 weeks ago. Been a bit discouraged as I've actually gained 3 pounds but have changed some hormone therapy too. At least it's not continuing to go up and I feel great. Have 15 pounds to lose. Plan to lose it even it takes a while. Hoping the scale next week is going the opposite direction:}

Yes, I was born in July of 1959. I know what you mean about it being harder to lose weight. Last year, I did lose 63 pounds, but have struggled to keep it off. I am currently working on losing 12 pounds to reach my final goal and an additional 2 pounds that I have gained back. I have been as much as 5 pounds over the original 63 pounds lost. I could use a buddy to work with, so if you are looking for a buddy to do this with, i would be happy to. It always seems easier when it feels like you aren't doing it alone. Looking forward to hearing back from you.

By the way, today is my first day. It hasn't been too tough but I'm really, really hungry right now, so I think I may have to go to bed before I attack the fridge!!!

I was born in April 1959. And all of a sudden (last two years) everything went to hell in a hand basket with new thyroid med and other stuff. Trying to get a handle on it before it gets worse.

BTW there's a great success story for a 52-year-old woman getting fit here: "http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/13/you-can-teach-an-old-dog-new-tricks_n_1581362.html#s=1078735"

Check out the slide show at the bottom.

You've come to the right place. Everyone here is fighting the same battle and there's strenght in numbers. emoticon

Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists..it is real..it is possible..it's yours."

I was born in March of '59. I actually used to have the same bathing suit you're wearing in your photo except mine was white. I guess that means we have a few things in common. I need to lose 20 pounds. I lost 17 with weight watchers last year but I've put 7 back on. I've got that middle age spread thing going and I am not going to let it get out of hand this time. A 20 pound weight loss goal sounds so much better than 30 pounds. I plan to reach my goal before the end of September.
