New from California
Hello. I just turned 48 years old a couple of days ago and after half-heartedly trying to lose weight I decided that I really need to hunker down and DO IT! I'm 5'2" and as of today I weight 200.2. This is the heaviest I have ever been in my life. I'm one of those who as a young adult ate anything and everything and couldn't gain a pound, I weighed 118 when I got married. Over the years it has just crept up on me, that and 3 children.
Today I went to the doctor and got diet pills.
I have been scrimping and saving and investing so that I can retire at age 55, pretty sure I will be able to and that's not an easy thing being a single woman. I realized that I am investing so much in that but I haven't been investing in ME. What good does it do if I am able to retire but because of weight and/or health, I am not able to do the things that I want to do?
So, this is the first day...
