I have spent the last 7 months working on myself. Decades of unhappiness took a toll on me...including adding lots of weight.
I started going to the gym, counting calories, etc. I've lost 140 pounds and feel awesome! No dating prospects...but it felt good to work on me. I feel like I shed weight - but with those pounds came shedding of sadness that I buried. Instead of dealing with my feelings, I ate.
Instead of food, I turn to the gym now...but the need (due to sadness) is far less frequent. I workout because I love it. I am SO happy now, and half my size
I just wish exercise would work for me. I am stronger and fitter than I was at any other age (I’m 64). I can do burpees, jump squats, step aerobics, HIIT, lift weights, and carry heavy shopping bags upstairs like it’s nothing at all, but darn it, for all that work (which I enjoy immensely), it makes no difference to how I look, and I eat healthy too. You have done really, really well. 🤗

jim44444: hmisssunnybunny not only did andie delete her existence here she also deleted her tumblr account. Maybe her hubby found her online postings.

solodriver: I'm sad andie is gone too. She reached out to me when I first joined the group at a time when I was really sick, and talked to me everyday until I was well again and shared a lot of her stories with me.

isthisit: Apologies for being a techno numpty- can anyone help me to send a PM? When I choose the member as a recipient the error message indicating a staff member is required. Eh?
