Not liking numbers. Still feel like I am in my 30s. I do look after myself with regular healthy exercise. I still have food issues and body issues with my career and people saying things all the time. Working in a fitness industry people comment all the time about everything we talk about . Drives me crazy. And the bloody mirrors I have to work in front of everyday. Feeling bloated from hormones and then my high water retention issues all my life. Hereditary. So much more than people realise. I hate my body everyday unless I am at a weight I feel comfortable. At the moment high fluid retention. Even when I fly I can look so disgusting from a flight. My body swells up like you would never believe. Even if I exercise on the plane I still come off full of fluid you cannot see my knees my bones in my legs gone. My feet my belly my face. This happens to a lesser account with just living. I am here to chat and listen and help support people. I know how it feels being young with this disorder. I never forget my challenges at every age and stage of my life. Gets harder as we get older. We are suppose to know better aren't we?

There is an article in New Scientist this week about the benefits of Hot Yoga, but since it doesn't compare it with ordinary Yoga it's impossible to know if there are real advantages.  Personally I hate being hot and sweaty, but since my creaking body no longer manages even some of the easiest Yoga, I guess it's all not for me any more anyway.

And if we are?  55 here.  So what.  Problems may get more difficult?  But I don't feel my age do you?  We age and it is a fact of life.  Still want to strive for thin.  Even if we are married and there seems no point to attract a mate.  It is not about attracting, it is personal and that seems never to go away.  You all?

I have no idea what the exact motivation is that brings all of us here but do know it is widely varied.  I pass judgement on no one.  Each person has their own story to tell and experiences that justify their situation.  Peace to all and may you find your tomorrow better than today.

53 here. I feel best when I am thin. Younger women have told me that I inspire them to eat healthy and exercise, which I do. However, the pounds are creeping up lately :wacko: . Iā€™m 10 pounds over my gw. Today I started fasting for the first time in a few years. Iā€™m about 18 hours into it. Feeling good. Drank 1 small coffee in the morning, a couple cups of tea and water. Looking for a friend to help and to be accountable to. :)
