This is my first post so I hope I'm doing it right. Alyons241 - We are very similar. I just turned 52 and also am disappointed in my increasing weight. I am at 159 and want to loose around 25 - 30 lbs. My start date is Jan 14.
My sister is 5 years older than me and my brother is 10 years older. As the years have gone by I've seen my brother's weight increase, and then my sister's weight increase. In the past I've looked at them and considered what I might weigh in 5 or 10 years. I have always said I will NOT gain weight like they have. However, I AM gaining weight and feel I am on the same path that they took but I do not want to follow in their footsteps.
One of my biggest problems is that my husband likes to eat out several times a week. We often go to Mexican restaurants. I have been debating how to handle this and I think I will start by just eating 1/2 the food I'm given and bring the rest home for another meal.
