Kathy58 Posted September 29, 2014 Share Posted September 29, 2014 Hi, I am a 56 year old mom of 7. Recently, (a year ago) our oldest son passed away. Coupled with that is the whole menopause thing and a life-long struggle to keep the weight off. I am about 10-12 pounds over what I prefer. I am, quite honestly, sick of the struggle. I am not a sedentary person--work out 5-6 a week, but am not conquering in the battle. So, though I am hopeful, I am also skeptical as through the years I have tried so many things. I am already gluten-free, so grains are not an issue. The dairy-free is my concern. I do love my cream in my coffee. I guess I also have come to that place where I am really tired of cooking. When all 7 children were home we cooked 3 meals a day from scratch; so the effort to just make a salad is very over-whelming to me sometimes. (I realize most of this is connected to the loss of our son and the grief). My husband and I are starting on Oct. 1st. I do hope to see some results, not just weight reduction; such as--stiffness and aches, usually related with age, to dissipate. This is the first forum I have ever participated in; rather a scary experience to put it all out there. Hoping for success. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
