I am going to be 50 in November AGGH! Put on serious weight after having my lovely DS. I think it's never skipping a meal that has caused the weight increase. Also enjoying our lovely family dinners.

Cooking, sitting down as a family, food and entertaining has always been a family hobby. My mother is a brillant cook that has passed on her passion to her four children.
I now have a desk job after years of being pretty active this has lead to it being difficult to shift the weight.
I'm working on losing 20lbs by August and so is my brother in Canada.
He has a big event and wants to buy an expensive suit in a smaller size. I want to look good before my birthday.

DON'T DO CARDIO - Must Read!
The answer I have found is to do 10 mins with 1min x blasts at high speeds. This has really helped me lose weight. I go to the gym every lunch time for only 30 mins but pack in the exercise.
I used to not bother as I didn't have 1 hour to spare but 30min I can do. I also walk a lot so sometimes if I have time, I walk to my next appointment.
I sometimes swimming for 30mins and that has helped my back and joints.
Counting calories on here has really helped and understanding that it's a real balance of needing food to function not as a form of entertainment to cope with boredom. Confused
