Cool New here

Hello,
My name is Linda and here to get some great advice about weight loss. I have been overweight all my life but in the past year, it seems to very hard to loss weight. I am in my early 50's and now that old menopause it knocking on my door.
I am going to a weight loss seminar in November and hope to start the program so hopefully, I will have the weight loss surgery next June.
Thanks for listening,
Linda

Linda,

It only gets harder the older we get, but we CAN and WILL be healthier now, and we can do it! (I will be 50 myself coming up in Feb, I speak from experience)

I'm new here too, Linda. I have not been overweight all my life but have packed it on big time in my 40s. I'm now 52 and menopause is something I know contributes but somehow seem to be avoiding that issue. I know what I need to do. Doing it is another story. That's why I'm here too. I need support so badly as I can't do this on my own.
