Sorry to hear you are having challenges tough enough to make you want to go off your diet. I just reached my 70th birthday in April and I'm finding it so vital to learn to pace myself and change my self image by realizing I ain't as young as I used to be.
I just got back from a 30 min. walk (I had to force myself to exercise. I have 25 lbs to lose..I've lost 10 already and my temptation is to relax now and rest on ly small laurels. This I must not do.
Sorry I didn't greet you sooner. I have had a series of small disasters befall the household this week and haven't been on line much. I am 76 and in good health, but need to loose 10 to 15 LBS. I am trying not to eat to cover how I feel about these things not in my control and the one I should have prevented.

Hello, first i barged in to the lair of the golden bear... sorry, bear!... but now i think i got it right. New to this team but i'm not new to SP - been here since March. My profile pic is 2+ years old & where i want to be again... still overweight by gov't table standards but not by mine! I took the pic myself when i still had a hubby. He has since passed & the anniversary date is Wednesday... it will be 2 years. Our 6 daughters thought i was going to just stop eating after he died but i just kept on eating & gained some weight. Now i want to lose it and take care of myself so they don't lose their other parent. I also have 6 grandkids & 2 Korean exchange student grandkids. I have the best neighbors in the world. The refuse to let me turn into a housemouse!
