Hiya Curlylocks~

I'm here, hope some of the others follow or others jump on board. Anyway, I would love to join as I said. I'm 46 and on this journey for the umpteenth time and hoping it will be the last time! Not sure why I keep doing this...I lose and then gain and then lose and then gain, yadda, yadda. But I am tired of it for sure.

Hope to see more ladies! Take care

Sorry hon, ya' can't have mine lol

But seriously it's really boring and very difficult to stay out of the kitchen. I seem to be fine while I'm on the computer but if I sit down to watch my soaps I just want to eat.

Hi Ladies~

Curlylocks~oooohhh, menopause issues! Where to start...my doc thought I was going through it, well actually I am, periomenopause (sp?). I think they say you can go throught that for 5 years, YIKES! I know I have had my fair share of hotflashes and no periods. Last year I went 6 months without a period and was having hot flashes and then BAM! out of the blue I started and the hotflashes stopped. Haven't been having as many hotflashes and just missed a period in Feb. thinking oh good maybe this time it will actually be over. Well, no...started last week.

I am finding it harder to lose the weight being older. Of course I know I can do if I actually stick to something long enough. However, it does seem to come off very slow for me. I am happy though if I lose a pound a week. I would rather lose it slow and keep it off than to take it off too fast.

Bailey~I don't have a problem staying out of the kitchen. I have all the right foods stocked in there. My problem is eating out so much. A very bad habit I am trying to break and am finding it very hard to quit. If I was a smoker I would say it is as hard as trying to quit smoking.

Anyway, I need to get ladies but will be back for more chat later tonight or tomorrow morning. Hope you all are having a wonderful day.

I was taking allesse for birth control but there are too many health risks at this age.. but odd that i put weight on when i stopped them.. i lose when i am on them...

even more frightening ending up pregnant at 44!! yikes! tho the guy i am dating now was born to his mother when she was in her 50's can u imagine????

I always wanted children tho.. was always waiting till i was married..

i just went out to take my bratty pup for a walk and the wind is howling and its raining! dang it! so we had to come back in..

I've heard that your metabolism slows by 5% every decade, so apparently it will only get worse...

BOY... mine must have come to a halt when i was 7!!! LMAO ive been overweight all my life.. opps no maybe from age 0-5 i was at goal lol
i lost the 120 watching what i ate.. exercising and using a very low dose of phentermine.. but i was still overweight by the charts..

i do think it has to be some chemical imbalance that makes people have a tendency or pre-disposition to be heavy.. and its not just food intake and inactivity alone.. cuz i see people all the time shoveling the food in and not exercising and they are stick thin...
my mom for one.. it wasnt until she hit 55 that she could even get over 100 lbs! and ive always wondered my dad isnt heavy, grandparents arent heavy.... hmmm

then just a few weeks ago i learned something i never knew.. my mom's grandmother was very heavy over 400 lbs

AHAAA! well that along with every home movie i see of me as a child i had a bag of chips in my hand.. stuffin em in my mouth lol
