Hi, I am a 55 year old that is learning to cope with empty nest syndrome. I have several health issues that I have been dealing with. My doctor's keep telling me that if I loose weight that I will feel better. I know that is true. My biggest problem is that I have an addictive personality and when I get a taste of my favorite foods, I don't seem to know when to quit.

Member Since: 8/28/2012

Fitness Minutes: 4,023

My Goals:
1. To find peace within myself.
2. To practice self control.
3. To loose at least 1-2 lbs per week.
4. To regulate my sleep schedule.
5. To do at least 10 minutes worth of exercise each day.

My Program:
My program starts with giving all glory to God! In order for me to live a Godly life I must abandon all gluttony and work on self control. I need to realize that I am powerless but God can work through me. I am basically just watching my caloric intake, watching my portions, drinking my water, and trying to exercise every day.

Personal Information:
I was raised an Army brat and moved so many times when I was growing up that I don't know where to call home. Currently I am in Michigan and don't plan on going anywhere soon.

I have a 18 year old daughter and a 20 year old son that is currently living with his girlfriend and expecting my 2nd grandchild in July. I also have a 32 year old son in ND along with my beautiful granddaughters. Then last but not least is my oldest son at 34 years old who lives in Fairbanks, AK and is going to college.

My mom lives close to me and she is my best friend. Unfortunately she is in Florida during the winter months. I can't wait until April for her to get home.

My dad lives in Georgia so I don't get to see him very often. (Update: my dad passed away on December 5, 2015.) He will be missed terribly. He was my hero.

Other Information:
I am 55 and before I leave this world I want to be able to look in a mirror and see someone who is beautiful and someone with whom I am totally happy with.

    Welcome to the OMAT Team. It is definitely a team for support, encouragement and insight. I hope to see you on the message boards so that we can get to know you better and support you in your goals.

    I, too, have difficulty with that addictive mindset. It has helped me, with food since we can't go cold turkey on that, to portion out what I'm eating and to make it a rule not to go back for more. I can have something else, just not more of whatever I was eating.

    I think you will really like aquatics. So easy on joints, you can move freely in water because water displaces your weight. So you feel lighter. Let me know how it goes. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Debbie, you asked about my exercising at night. I have trouble sleeping at night. So I try to walk or do some type of exercise right before I go to bed. It helps me go right to sleep. If I wake up during the night and can't sleep I walk .
