Time to update the bio:

I am now 60 years old, still 5'-2", still have 1 wonderful husband and 1 daughter, college junior, who is turning into an amazing young woman we like to spend time with. Was 124 lbs when I got married 34 years ago and my weight has been creeping up ever since. Love to cook (stumbled onto FS website while researching recipes and took it as a sign); really don't like to exercise, but I've joined gyms trying to find the right fit and may have finally found it!

Since joining FS, I lost 25+ pounds the first 9 months and was bouncing up and down a bit, but holding my own pretty well. Four months later, life turned upside down with dramatic changes in my mother's condition (Alzheimer's) and I fell back into my stress-eating habits. I gained back half of what I'd lost and now can't fit into my skinny pants that I was so proud to buy a year ago.

Wanted to be lean and fit by my 60th birthday and stop my stress-eating response to things in my life I can't change, but I'm still a work in progress. Still want to get the wedding ring back on my finger - too stubborn to get it resized and admit defeat.

This site is great - so much good information and support. I just need to make myself the priority and focus on my goals and hold myself accountable. We are all on similar journeys - we can do it!

Leg cramps!
I occasionally get cramps in my calves (usually only one at a time) when I'm asleep that wake me up and only seem to get worse as I try to stretch. I also get them more frequently when I'm relaxing on the couch with my feet up. The only thing that works for me is to hobble to the kitchen and drink a small glass of milk. For me, that brings instant relief. I have discussed this with my doctor who tells me that there is no way the milk could act that fast to solve the problem and that it is the act of walking around that is alleviating the pain. But if I stand or stretch or try to walk it off, the muscle stays sore and tender. It's weird that it works and while I can believe that there is no reason that it should, (and it may not have any effect on anyone else's leg cramps) sorry doc, I'm sticking with what works for me.
