Hello, I turn 50 next week and I have gained too much weight. 20 lbs since going into menopause. UGHHHH on the weight, menopause not to bad. So it is time to reinvent myself to the active person I used to be. 200 years ago before children. I just signed up tonight. I am looking for all the help and support I can find and will do my best to support and help others.
It is inspiring to see the progress of the people here. I have hope

Welcome to the team! This is a great place to help you recommit to a healthy lifestyle!
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement. -Foster C. Mcclellan

I joined SP about 3 years ago and while I was successful in losing a good amount of weight through proper nutrition and regular exercise, I never really used SP. Fast forward to today, and I've put the weight back on after having to change meds in January (and yes, I also stopped exercising regularly and got really sloppy with my food). The positive is that I still have not gone back to fast food and junk food, but still - I want that feeling of being fit and healthy back! I just moved from Ohio to Florida to be close to my family and have taken advantage of the beautiful weather to start walking again with my Golden Retriever, Shelby every morning. I ran across a mention of SP in a magazine and now have jumped back in and am using all of the resources to get healthy again. I'm excited to be reintroduced to this wonderful resource and having just turned 50 in June, I look forward to getting to know some of you better.
