I'm new. I am 52 and lost 100 pounds 9 years ago. I have gained back 60 and am devastated. I know everything to do and can coach anybody. But I need a coach and motivator. I do the same thing you do. I weigh - get upset about my weight and eat and then get disgusted with myself for eating and eat more. At 50'I ran my first half marathon - three months later I was going through my second divorce. This past December I fell a and broke my leg in two places and crushed my wrist. I had surgery and was off work two months. During that tim, my father who was terminally ill passed away. I just had two surgeries a week ago and can't workout or lift weights yet. I am looking for a partner in this journey. Oh did I mention I have just started going through menopause!!!!!!! When it rains it pours.....not looking for an umbrella...want to dance in the rain and get through this.View Thread
