ANOTHERGO and back to SparkPeople and the team challenge...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle again.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.
Good Luck to you!!!! I am 52 years old, 4 children and have a lot of the same questions that you do....as you study nutrition....I can tell you that (and I don't know the psychology) I get tired of thinking about healthy choices and seek out foods that will not lead to weight loss....I have learned a lot of strategies from being a member of Spark People and hope I will continue to make the small changes that will lead to a healthier life style and a healthy weight....I hope this helps you in your journey!!!!
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.
Starting Weight: 100.2kg (220.44Ibs)
