I am 56 years old and I have now been living in Sweden for almost 6 years.
As a New England native I can't say the cold bothers me but it is very dark here and that can be depressing. Last spring, after getting depression under control, I started eating healthy and exercising daily and continued through the summer - until I broke my ankle at the end of July. I could not exercise and needed to eat to support healing so I gained back some of the weight but not much. Then my Dad died and my precious, little dog, my companion of 16 years, got sick and had to be euthanized so I was really thrown for a loop. Depression returned and weight with it.
BUT - Now I am back on track, eating healthy, paying attention to my nutrients and exercising daily and it feels really good.
What I want most is to feel strong, flexible and healthy and maintain a healthy lifestyle - forever.

My Program:
I tend towards high volume, low fat and I try to be very conscious of getting the nutrients that my body needs to be strong and healthy.
