In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
Hi I am again giving this a go. l want to change my lifestyle not just think of this as a diet, if you go on a diet you eventually have to come off it and there lies the problem. So I am almost 52 years old, I have three children, and 2 grand children (twins), I am studying part time Nutritional Medicine, hoping to gain a career but also to get an insight into how people gain weight and what can stop them from reducing the weight, I would like to also build a career on helping people with weight problems and food intolerances, especially children. I have been ON A DIET for a number of years, if i was truthful I have been dieting since 1990 when my third child was born. Having a child at 30 doesn't do much for your metabolism. My studying came about because I have been working for the tax office of approximately 12 years as a casual, and last year being out of work for the longest time, 7 months, between contracts gave me a lot of time to think, and thinking that I hate being depressed a few months every year waiting for the tax office to recall me in for yet another contract. So studying between contracts seemed a good option. I weigh 99.7kg and I have increased my weight by about 5 kgs since starting and finishing menopause, so I think that I have a lot of hard work ahead of me.
