New, 56yo, needs support buddy..anybody?
Hello, I am over 150 pounds from my goal....starting new after gaining a lot of weight in the pass 6 months. I had been losing weight at a steady pace until I started having knee problems. Then came the summer heat. I didn't grow up overweight but gained my pounds during and after having my three sons. Then there was the total hip replacement, then back surgery. I also have a few other health problems that are chronic. I don't like to call my eating a diet....of course I have to lose weight but I really, really want to feel better about myself both physically and emotionally. I don't work, my husband is a teacher, so I am at home alone ALL DAY....I don't have any family in town. I am active at church but I don't have any really close relationships with anyone there.
So I have been eating out of boredom, loneliness, and laziness.
I am using calorie counting and the Lose It app on my iPad. I would just like to start a conversation with someone who doesn't mind me tagging along. I am 56 years old, married, three grown sons living out of town. I feel so needy right now....thinking about deleting this post but I'm going out of my comfort zone and I will push post. Thanks!
