So a few of you may have noticed a decided lack of ‪#‎fitforfifty‬ in my posting. I had a few setbacks and stopped going to the gym and my diet went a bit by the wayside. I can make excuses, lost my job, depression, new medicines, going on the insulin pump... but today I started again and I'm very happy I did. I didn't do a lot, just a stretch warm up and 30 minutes on the bike but it was something. And when I wobbly walked out of the gym I took a nice deep breath and was proud of myself.

I gained back 10 of the 17 lbs that I had lost but weight isn't the end game here and I've got to remind myself that. While I can't afford the stretch classes again until I'm gainfully employed there is no reason I can't go to the gym. I've kept up my membership and it's fairly inexpensive. I was doing well and feeling much better about myself when I was treating my body well. It's time to get back to that.

We all have setbacks sometimes.

Great that you got back on track!

Go you! **waves Pom poms and cheers you on!*

Glad you're hanging in there - hope you realize just how strong you are. Feeling good about yourself is the real goal; a lot of us are pulling for you.

Good for you!

Taking it one day at a time is the best approach. I'm glad you're back on track. Reading your list may be the kick in the pants I need to do the same. At the very least it is a reminder that I am the change that awaits. Best to you!

You know, as they say, shit happens. I'm glad to hear you're back on track and that you're taking one day at a time and not letting this get you too down. Good for you!!!
