Although I'm overweight, I exercise regularly, eat quite healthy. However, I have chronic IBS, chronic back pain due to a childhood injury, and am post menopausal. These things contribute to my difficulty with losing weight, as well as poor sleep habits. My goal is to make a major shift in these areas. I work full-time, go to the gym about 4 to 5 times a week, blog, and paint. I keep pretty busy most days. I'm happily married to a very fit 51-year old man, and have a handsome, healthy, intelligent honors college student (son), studying to be a bio-chemist. Good health is important to us, so I'm concerned about finally ridding myself of this excess weight once and for all!

I've got about 28 pounds to lose to get down into my healthy range..."12 or 13 kg" sounds less daunting to me, so I'm going with that...whatever works! I put on about 50 pounds with chemo eight years ago...the steroids, I'm told, accounted for about half of I am trying to lose now the extra I got from eating-to-feel-better. Chemo kicked me into (and through) menopause, but the slower metabolism isn't doing me any favors, alas. For work, I travel about 50% of the time, and have used that as an excuse not to eat right about 50% of the time also. I'm married, with a daughter (physician) and a granddaughter (who is, of course, perfect in every way!), will retire this year and start law school next year-- a lifelong plan :) -- so I'd like to get rid of these excess pounds now...
