I'm 50 years old and want my body to feel as young as my mind :)

I exercise consistently, but not nearly enough for what I eat, clearly, as I'm overweight.

I've decided to change my diet and exercise plan to improve my body and overall health.

I take a daily vitamin as well as glucosamine and condroitin supplements for arthritis. A few years ago, I was taking various Rx meds for the arthritis, but gave them up in favor of the supplements. Now I need to give up the other unhealthy stuff I put into my body - the food I was raised on and truly love.

Hoping to find some information and inspiration here :D

Hi oldlady,

I am 58 and want to get my body into the shape I was in at 40.
Back then, I worked out 2 hours a day and ate no fat. Then my 15 year old son came down with cancer and suddenly I lost all interest in myself. 6 months later,my 12 year old developed diabetes. Bad bad year!
So, I put all my energy into my kiddos and went back to college. Once my kids were doing better, I was engrossed in my schooling and work and no longer had the desire to spend so much energy in the gym.
Years later, I am ready to once again take care. Of my body. No health problems yet but only a matter of time. Perhaps we can encourage each other.
