I have to agree that as we age, it gets harder and harder. I've had 2 kids and I'm 15 years older than you. I weigh about 40 pounds more now than I did before getting married. I used to binge eat when I deprived myself. I think WW is so great for that because you can have what you want - just not a huge amount. The counting keeps me in line.
Good luck to you!
5 lbs. gone!
