I am glad you are feeling better.

The great thing about SP is that there is lot of support here!! Keep sparking and you will reach your goals. I am a returning sparker and found it very helpful a few years ago, then left for awhile, and last year returned, as I cannot maintain without SP in my life.

Have you ever tried strength training? It works wonders and really speeds up that metabolism that we all need even more as we age as we naturally loose muscle mass (I am 51).

I`m usually very upbeat person, but tonight Im crying because feel my body is betraying me.

To make a long story short; I'm 52 years old and a lot has changed in my life both my body and my lifestyle.

Few years ago I was taking care house full kids and big house and lost 50 pounds. I felt great and top of my game.

Now Im an empty nester and I went through change of life. I quit smoking over year ago and now everything went down hill. In one year I gained back 50 pounds.

Im on low carb diet for the past 25 days and I have not lost one pound. Ive eaten no junk food. For first time in my life and I feel out of control.

I need new game plan. I hate my body. I feel so crippled.

Thank you for listening, It feels better to let it out. .
