I'm a 52 yr old married, mother of 4. I've struggled with my weight since puberty and with my kids births, came extra weight. I was always, with great effort and exercise, able to lose the weight until after the birth of child #4. Being in my 40's definitely changed my ability to get rid of the unwanted pounds and the fat was just stuck to me like GLUE.

I gave up very easily on each new WOE I tried and therefore just was stuck hovering between 168 and 182 (Ugh). After returning from a family vacation and going through the snap-shots I nearly gagged. Was that old looking, blob me? It certainly could not be. I finally realized that I really did look awful.

Here I am - nearly 10 years later and still fighting my weight. I have tried everything, including hypnosis (which worked really well for about 4 months) -- and now I'm back at 176.

I just started Paleo and it seems to be something I may be able to do. Wish me luck. I'm not averse to eating healthy - just surrounded by candy, cookies, cakes, and all the stuff that I really need to avoid. Sure is tough sometimes. I need support to do this.

    Romans 8:26Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
