Thanks ladies! So glad to meet you!

Dwelling on past mistakes does you no good. You can change everything today if you want to, or you can keep living the life you've always lived. It's up to you, but remember this: every moment is an opportunity to change your life.
~Aaron Chavez

I wake up every day with the realization that this is it, that there's only one shot at this life and I can either enjoy the ride and live it to its fullest and to my highest potential or I can stay the way I am.

Hi Lisa, I'm also new to this group, and I'm also 43. I'm going to have a full hysterectomy in December, and right now I'm on Lupron Depot—just got the first shot, so my menopause symptoms haven't started yet. Soon, though. I'm not ready, but who ever is?

I've lost 70lbs over the last year, and I'm scared of it all coming undone—especially on the Lupron, which causes fast weight gain for a lot of women. Then once I'm in menopause, I'm not sure if I'll be able to lose it again. Lots of anxiety! I can't afford to gain weight because I have a spine condition that will get much worse if I gain that weight back. As you can tell, I'm anxious.

Waving hello, everyone.

Melissa

My name is Lisa. I have been a part of Spark since '09. I had great success in the first year and then life happened. I started have medical issues a couple of years ago that resulted in a full hysterectomy this past January and put me into menopause at age 43. It has been a very hard trip mentally the last few months. I am finally starting to come around and feeling better each day. I'm hoping to connect with others who have had similar experiences and when this weight loss battle once and for all.
