I appreciate being on this board with you all. I'm 55 years old and have a 19 year old autistic son, who is doing great. I'm married and since my Mom has passed away 4 years ago, my weight has gone up.
I used to be a size 6. I realize that things change, but my knees and my back hurt. I try to walk 2 - 3 times per week. I also work full time at a computer. Thanks!View Thread
hi MKissFL, Thanks for mentioning the insurance. We have BCBS also. I'm new here and just posted today. I'm 55 and I need to lose 30 lbs. My knees and back hurt. I walk 2-3 times per week for 1 -2 miles, but it's not enough. I seem to eat more at night also. What type of workouts do you do? That's great that you and your Mom do the Saturday work outs.View Thread
