Getting back my body
An_243041 posted:
I have gained weight since I quit smoking about 5 years ago and now I need help and some moral support, I am trying to lose 50 to 75 lbs . I am 55 y/o and will turn 56 February 7th on my birth year 56. So I really need to make a change in my health. I would really appreciate any moral support that I can get. Oh, by the way, my name is Ruth Ann

Hi and welcome! I'm a little older than you, 58. I started this healthy journey (this time for life) back in June of 2011. I joined the 50-100 community in Sept. That community has been an invaluable tool as I continue my journey. It is a tough road to go alone. What changes are you making to improve your health? I am a calorie counter and am now very conscious of the nutrition value in those calories. Another boardie introduced me to where you can log your food. WebMD has one too. It is a great way to keep yourself honest and to get the nutrition value for what you consume. I also exercise most days (walk and yoga).
