Welcome! Good for you to use your birthday as a motivating goal. You sound really busy. I know I have days that are very full and it is hard to get everything in. I've found that if I just take a ten minute walk right before bed then even if I didn't get to the gym, I feel like I've done something active. Ten minutes less sleep isn't going to make a big difference, but being consistent about moving can. I am also figuring out how to make menus when I don't have time to search or record each ingredient. Right now I am just sticking to the same breakfast and lunch. I guess it's a little boring, but at least I don't have to take time to figure out if it is something I should be eating. One more thing that helps me when I feel like I don't have time is a quote I read somewhere that says, (paraphrasing) "If you want to discover two more hours in your day, shoot your TV." If I am saying I don't have time to work out, but I have time to watch Revenge then I'm just lying to myself. Anyway- good luck! Know there are lots of us trying to figure out the same things.

Hi there, this year I am turning 50 and I promised myself that I want my body back that I had in my early thirtees. Need to get rid about 60lbs. It has been quite a struggle with my weight and the weight kept creeping up on me. Going to menopause and slow thyroid didn't help much but I know that is not an excuse. I am really struggling fitting everything in my schedule. I am a single mom plus I work 2 jobs and I am finding it really hard to stick to my menus and to make it to the gym at least 3 times a week when there are 2 days in the week that I work 12 to 13 hours in a day. Any suggestions that will help or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
