I am 55 and have traveled the road less traveled and came out alive to talk about! Menopause, back surgery and the death of my mom left me with hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue and 10 extra pounds and the notorious “menopot”. Now that I’m regulated on dessicated natural thyroid, my body can do the work it needs to. Since February, I have been doing upper body work outs, daily aerobics I found on you tube and did a 360 on my diet. I started with a nutrisystem Jumpstart kit purchased at Walmart. I ate what was in the plan for 1 week and then I was on my
own. It was like training wheels.
lt taught me how to limit portions, eat appropriate snacks to keep my energy up and to have a salad and fresh veggies with lunch and dinner. It hasn’t been easy. I started out weighing 118 and am now down to 112 after almost a month. My waist and belly have definitely shrunk about an inch and my BP which was 140/90 is now 117/72. My advice to any woman over 50 who wants to lose weight and get healthy is simple but hard to do. Stay away from the 3 deadly white foods: sugar, white flour and salt. Eat colorful (meaning fruit and veggies, not m&ms). And last but not least, lift some weights and get moving!

Yesterday I went running for the first time in a month, and 3 miles slowly was really hard for me. After running, I began drink water with lemon juice and I did for the rest of the day. I ran again this morning, and 4 miles at a much faster pace was actually easy. I feel like I have more energy and I can already tell that I have lost a little weight. I am stunned by the results I have already seen. The extra energy I have is great and I will continue to do this. If anyone else runs in the morning though, I want to know if it would be better to drink the lemon water before I run or after, since I eat after I run.
