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. 🤗
choosinghappy: Hope you had a great birthday h!

mrrobot: Hi guys, I don't know if this community is still active - if so, I posted a thread at the forum if anyone could give me some light I'd be really thankful! Cheers

georgia: Hi...I’ve just joined the group. And I simply need a place to vent and hopefully receive some help dealing with my utterly sexless marriage. After 15 years of marriage our sex life has dwindled to nada, zero, nothing.

kh: why even marry someone with a high libido if you hate sex

javba: kh - fast forward 2 kids and 20 years later I have not resolved the problem you're looking at. Now I have cracked 51 yrs, have lesser chances of finding someone, not as market-able. You may want to reconsider "child is 8 mon old" with a 50% divorce rate

DryCreek: mrrobot, georgia, kh - welcome! I see a couple of you have posted your stories in the forum. I think not a lot of folks use this chat because you can only see it on laptops, not on phones. georgia, please do post your story and vent here. We get it.
