Hi there. I am 43 years old, but if you ask me my age, I'll tell you I'm 21 & a bit. Thats the exact age my Mom was from when I was little until the day I lost her to cancer. She used to tell me that the bit just got a little bigger.
When I was in my 20's I used to be quite small (and I"m only 5'1"), and the worst part about that is that I still have dreams of being that size. And then I wake up, walk by a mirror and get depressed all over again.
I plan on getting as healthy as I can, and hopefully being around for my daughter and son for as long as I can. I have even gotten my husband to change a few of his bad habits.
I wish all of us at FS a wonderful and rewarding journey, for whatever our goals may be. Hugs to all!

When is a good time to start a healthy lifestyle?
I have some issues with things myself so I understand what your talking about. Sometimes OCD is almost like sabotaging eating well. I can find a way to twist anything I want to how I think I want something, but not necessarily what's best for me. Start each day as a new one as opposed to starting a new week. I find that works for me. Good luck!

The struggles after 8pm
I used to make myself a smoothie after dinner with frozen yogurt, frozen berries , milk and ground flax in it. You can make it fairly large ( count your portions) and I used to find it extreamly filling. Good luck!!

A couple of thoughts while I food shop
I sometimes think the same way. I had a friend bring me a package of 5 butter tarts from a fruit market. The rest of my family doesn't eat them. I thought that if I had them in my house I would be eating one a day for 5 days, so to not do that, I ate all 5 of them the day I got them. I try to avoid having that stuff in my house or buying it. I have a problem with lack of will power,lol

throwing hay
I've thrown hay before and would definitely count that as weight lifting. When I was doing that as well as mucking out horse stalls on a regular basis, I had some killer toned arms!

Spike Diet
I've been doing better with keeping closer to the 1200 a day last week and this week...and we won't talk about before that,lol. If you have any suggestions on tweaking my diet, I'm grateful for all the help I can get.
