Hi everyone.

I have been doing a lot of research on women's health. Trying to control my own anxiety about our changes and getting older. I decided to take charge of my health. I eat healthier cut out most sugars. I drink almond milk, more fruits and veggies. I take supplements more vitamin D, multivitamin, turmeric, CoQ10, probotics, greens supplements, Omega 3. I drink water or unsweetened green tea. I ride my bike with my kids and try to get plenty of sleep. I have lost 43 pounds so far. I am sharing this because I feel better. I have more energy and I feel better mentally. I decided to take control of my life and health. If you read about alot of different illnesses and diseases it's usually controlled by what you eat. I hope this helps anyone needing advise on the way they feel. We can only help ourselves!

    Well done you! I don't know how you manage. I have zero determination. I have irresistible sweet craving. A week ago I was trying to keep a bit active. Then period cane and knocked me down and I just want to eat chocolate. I am very depressed. I seem to be putting on weight rather than loose. I know I will feel better if I lost a bit. But I just can't keep the state of mind. I admire you!

    I agree and believe in this.  Eating healthy and staying active is key.  I also take all supplements that you have mentioned and try to swim as often as I can.  My problem is the mindless snacking which then leads to other things...   Sugar is basically a drug and it's hard to beat!  Once I get this under control, I'm sure I will feel better.  : )  Keep up the great work!!

    Wonderful!  I've lost 12 pounds by changing eating habits, riding an exercise bike daily, and getting more sleep.  Still struggling as always with anxiety, especially at work, but this one area is mine:  taking care of myself.  It makes a huge difference and it is so fun to see the number on the scale get lower.  I am wearing clothes that didn't fit and my plantar fasciitis is nearly gone!  A day at a time.
