I'm a 51 year old mom of a 22 year old daughter and 3 older step kids.I work full time.

I am a 51-year old mother of 2 beautiful daugters, 19 & 22-yrs. old. Married 4 yrs. to the best guy in the world. Always a healthy, fit Size 4 or 6 until this menopause kicked in and I don't know who is looking back at me in the mirror anymore! I have read The Secret, and several Hicks books and am trying to keep the faith in their message.

I am an Accountant working 3 days a week and putting in another 10 to 15 hours a week on home office work and volunteer work with Boards and Groups I belong to. Turning 50 this June! I have always been active so do not have to worry about exercise motivation but since we moved to the country 2 years ago, I spend more time in my car so I am finding that my daily routine does not involve the walking and moving that it used to. That and the fact that I used to be able to lose 5 or 10 lbs by just upping my exercise, even after gaining 50 lbs with pregnancy I lost it with mostly walking our child in a stroller EVERYWHERE for a year. The last couple of years a slow gain of about 15 pounds.. Our daughter is 7 so at an age where I can start back to doing more of my own activities. I am knowlegable about nutrition, weight loss, and exercise, I just can not seem to get a routine going -- and lack the accountabilty that it is going to take this time!
