I am now 71, how did that happen? Retired in '07 to stay home with my then 92 year old mother.

My weight struggles started in my 20's when a doctor told me to lose 10 pounds. No problem. But they came back with some additional and I yo-yo-ed my way up over 200 pounds. Now it is time to make some major life changes so I can enjoy my "golden" years.

I have suffered from depression my whole life, but learned from my mother how to be depressed without being depressing. It is now mostly under control. Both healthy eating and exercise are supposed to be good for the mood, too. Hubby says being retired has been good for my disposition!

My mother (97) moved into a nursing home last summer. This year is the 16th anniversary of my son's death.
Mom died at age 98. I also lost my kid sister and older brother in the past few years from pancreatic cancer. A cousin died from same thing this year. Getting a little more depressed, but I know it is grief.

    emoticon Thanks for reading my blog. Thanks for sharing your struggles. I am beside myself not knowing what to do.

    I was shocked at the signs of D issues. Do some research for hubby. It may turn out hubby is fine but it's good to check that D!
