I'm a 54 year old mother of 2 boys who both are in college -- one living away from home & one who returned home this year to finish his college degree. I was overweight as a child and struggled with binging in my twenties after my sister passed away. After getting married & having my sons, my eating and weight seemed to stabilize until recently. I started craving sugar horribly & began eating for emotional reasons, possibly in response to menopause, being an empty nester & having my Mom diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I've been working to find a way to live and eat healthfully. This journey has lead me through many different ways of eating, but what's working best currently is eating mindfully, paleo/primal and staying gluten, lactose & sugar aware. I had been at about 120 pounds for years, give or take a few, but seem to be averaging closer to 125 now. I'd love to get back to 120, but am realizing that as I age, that may be unrealistic. I'm an avid tennis player & workout most days that I don't play tennis. I know it's weird but I actually like to workout. I'm so happy to have found great support here on fatsecret.
