Hi, this is LadyLimes I am retired and joined this group because I need help reaching my goals of loosing 20lbs, need to track my calories and have been living a sedatary life since retirement five years ago. I have back, neck pains and suffer from fribomyalgia. I also have notice some weight gain and not as flexible as I use to be. So I got a stationary bike and have started to excersice 30 minutes a day and notice that I am more mobile now. So happy my niece told me about this group and decided to join it. Now I am able to count my calories as that was one of my problems. Ttyl Report

SparkPeople help me get back on track. Seeing the breakdown of what I consume at each meal and how it shapes my day, helps me stay honest and real with myself. After about one week I feel lighter, I have more energy, and my aches and pains have subsided. My body is changing. Even with a five pound weight loss, calculated today, I feel smaller and lighter, as if my body has changed dramatically, which it hasn't! It reminds me of how attached I've grown to my obese body. My padding has been a buffer. I have felt formidable and large, when in fact I am short and small boned, under my padding. Losing weight frees me, the me I feel is inside the obese me, but the small person me feels very vulnerable and scared sometimes. My obesity has been the portable, personal hiding place. It feels like a great accomplishment, when it doesn't feel like an obstacle. Maybe others have felt this way too. So, I'm just trying to be gentle and kind to myself so I can stay on track, because the bottom line is I feel great! Report
