God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Linda

CDT live on a country road near Alta, Iowa

I am going to watch the carbs.

If you are not going to sprint the horse get out of the saddle

I will learn the difference between an excuse and fact.

NO...and that's a major part of my problem. Once I hit age 60 (and I'm past that) I could NOT lost weight. Or if I did I'd go down 5 lbs and boom! Back up again.

I'm a NY-er transplanted to Baltimore and I NEVER walk like I used to. I have an ankle issue and back pain, but still. I took Tai Chi, but only once a week. I walk around a shopping place periodically. Otherwise I'm sitting at my desk (I have a home-based biz) or watching TV.

I lost 7 lbs and was so thrilled to get below 180. (I'm 5' 4".) It took TWO months. In my 30s I lost 30 lbs in 6 months, but now... .

Of course it doesn't help that I've been noshing, mostly candy and then ice cream. I make wonderful dinners that are mostly healthy. Yes we have carbs, but I've been watching out for portion sizes. Most of our dinners are chicken, seafood, soups, interesting salads, stir-fries. I almost NEVER fry; once in a blue moon there's fish/chips but usually I bake them not fry.

I KNOW better about watching weight. I'm a health writer for 20+ years. Can't tell you how much I've reported on obesity and updated latest diet advice.

But a host of financial issues as we (hubby and I) face last qtr of life just keep climbing. Housing repairs, car breakdown (just as we finished paying off!), his health (he's a disabled vet and my strong man is rapidly disappearing to be the old man I remember his FATHER being. He was exposed to certain military chemicals and issues have cropped that do NOT run in his family. How/when did this happen?!

I'm not seeking to be the 130 lbs I was in my 30s. Just get back to the comfy post-menopausal 150-155 lbs where I still wore some gorgeous size 12-14 items. (I've never been below a 10 and that of course depends on how women's clothes are cut). I'm mostly in16s now and I just look so darn boxy instead of a real hourglass.

This is not NYC with tons of free entertainment. There's no place free to go and NOTHING that's easily reachable. No mass transit. So we sit stuck in the house way too often, eating and watching TV.

I'll stop 'cause it's all so depressing. And no, I have no access to mental health care. Too expensive.

I must get moving. Now if only I could figure out how!

Yes! I went to the gym today around 2 and finished my work-out around 3. I have an injured foot so it is difficult to do things now. So, I am happy I was able to do what I did.

Nothing ever changes if nothing ever changes.
