    The pounds are stuck on me!

    I have gained 50-60 pounds over the last two year with the stress of divorce and moving. I also hit 50 during this time. I move around a lot and don't eat excessively and the pounds are stuck, mostly around my middle. I have tried weight watchers and noom but one thing I have learned is that I will not track anything to save my life. I am a box checker but not a tracker or journaler by any means. I am going to try Pure Barre because I think exercise may be my key. Any thoughts, any food combos, any help at all. Thanks so much.

    exercise is always the key, what's even better is swimming. start with 5 laps a day and go from there. its a total body workout, plus its summer so stay in the water.

    I'll just say that for me when I started to eat for health and not for weight loss, the weight started to drop off. I just went to a more whole foods diet, and cut out red meat, pork,and a lot of dairy. Still leaves a whole bunch of stuff to eat. Almost immediately I saw a rapid improvement in my cholesterol numbers and dropped 10 lbs in under a month. The thing about diets is I cant stick to what is basically a fad, I had to look at it as a lifestyle change. Lots of good material on the topic.

    Pure Barre is a great workout for de-stress. Breakups and Divorce can be the hardest thing because it often feels like a death even if you are the one to initiate it because your unwinding and pulling the cords of attachment with someone whom you've had much emotional attachment or codependency with for a long time or sometime. I'm not sure how long ago this was posted but in any case I pray you comfort, healing, and direction for moving on and forward in life. God Bless You. Amen
