I love this forum, too. It's so good to know I'm not the only older woman fighting this fight... I go to my workout and it's all young women and I feel old and creaky!

I go to the gym and there's an 80 year old woman running laps , this is before she goes into the 1 hour zumba or whatever class! Shock

We can do it! Don't think I ever want to run but to be able to go for an hour or two at full tilt and feel good, would be nice!

Right now I'm happy with getting up from kneeling without panting!Laughing

Kris and classic, I hope you are right. I was pretty upset with someone lying about me to others. I had to let it rest overnight before addressing it. I was talking to a client on the phone when I overhead the conversation. It makes me very sad when someone who I consider a good friend can lie about what I do to others. Makes me really think about anything I say to her now.

Caryatid the gym I go to has high school kids up to this man, I swear he is in his 90's walks with a cane. Gets on the treadmill and walks really slow and a few of the machines. If I say hello I get a nod and wink, he has to work hard but he is there.

Time to rethink the "good friend" thought.

I am willing to release the need to be unworthy. I am worthy of the very best in life and I now lovingly allow myself to accept it.

Classic yeah maybe, my thoughts as well. One of a few things that have happened lately.

I go to my workout, it's twice a week and it kicks my ass but I like it. I add in at least one more day a week of either a brisk walk or putting on music and dancing around at home, plus doing sit ups every day. And what happens? I gained 2 lbs. But my clothes are fitting better, so that's something. I was thinking I would break the 200 lb plateau but I guess not. Last time I broke it I had pneumonia and was sick for ten days... that's not an option!

Caryatid, maybe try cutting out all grains for a week, see what happens. That was the turning point for me. They bloat me and just make me feel sluggish and I'm not gluten free or on that bandwagon, although I do believe wheat is an enemy now especially GMO'D stuff which most of it is.

I tried Atkins once and didn't lose at all. I'm doing something wrong, I know it. I do have more energy with cutting out sugar, though. I don't eat much bread/starch, although I don't avoid it completely.

Catching up after a couple of days - WFN I agree w/the rest about setting the friend straight but have found sometimes 'their' attempt at reinterpreting what *I* am doing is just wrong due to lack of understanding. Just because I'll say 'no' to some food 'one' day because it doesn't fit into my big three (what do I want, have, and need) that day ... doesn't mean I never eat it. Someone see's me try a smoothie, suddenly THAT's how this all happened. It takes me back to that old quote I run thru my head constantly: "You'd stop worrying about what people think of you if you realized how little they do". Hard I know. I want to SMACK people who just can't believe I didn't have a surgery or band or whatever. It's hard to believe for most people it CAN be done.


I'm not losing WEIGHT. I'm converting FAT to MUSCLE to be healthier.

there are always going to be those people out there. Just agree with them with a smile and then do as u darn well please. Its you that has the wt problems and some people just love to see u fail. I don't usually talk about my new life change. When I don't eat something it either I'm not that hungry or I don't like it. I don't need to explain anything to anyone. Headed for church. Have a wonderful day.

Just joined. I second funtobewith's comment. Nice to have a forum of older women. I am struggling with menopause, the inevitable weight gain and everything else that comes with it. Looking forward to trying this site out. Good day to all.

Fullabella, you make me laugh, just smack those people. Kaykay it's soo funny when people just assume what you do or do not eat something and why.

I'm with you guys WFN I eat what I like and what works for me I went private buddies only because I was getting remarks about should you be eatting this and that and should you eat more of this and that and it just got old I'm doing ok and when I stop doing ok I will switch it up. I see my doctor and he is watching me he is mostly concerned about my sugar levels and A1C and they are both looking good right now so I think I am doing ok for now sorry for the rant Smile
