Alisa25 Posted October 16, 2013 Share Posted October 16, 2013 Today is Day 31. I did not want to get on the scales but I did.. gained 3.5 lbs. Very disappointed. However, I know what I did wrong and would like to share with all the over 50 ladies out there. Do not do this if you really do not want to exercise. For years I was really good at exercising 4-5 days a week. I had to let go of my gym membership after a move. For a while I was really good at just getting out on my own, walking/running. But slowly I have become just plain lazy.. that WILL change! Three years ago by choice, I had a complete hysterectomy, (Mother died of Ovarian Cancer) so I also have menopausal issues. I really think this should be taken into consideration for women. I have to believe out bodies just don't react the same. About half way through I posted and listed what I was eating. I got positive feed back that was on the right track so I really think I was eating good... just maybe too much! Of course if I had added some exercise.. ?? So, with all that being said, I am coming away from this we some positives. I have given up my 2 a day diet coke habit! I do not miss dairy at all. I do believe that grains are not needed in our diet. My almost daily bout of gas pains has completely disappeared! I have to admit that most women out there would be happy with my weight. But for me a 3lb gain is unsettling. I started this really wanting to see a 4-5lb drop! I do realize I have to take the blame for the weight gain. So for all us over 50 women... EXERCISE IS SO IMPORTANT! Currently I'm in search of a really good exercise DVD! any suggestions would be appreciated! Link to comment
