  1. i’m looking forward to this series barbie. i also was the skinny kid in school. didn’t gain much weight until i was in my 50’s and had a medication change. ugh! i finally figured out how to lose it, but later, had some challenges and gained again. didn’t lose as easily in my 60’s. now i’m a mess. need to lose a good 20#. probably low carb diet would work. just need to do it!

  2. My weight wasn’t really a problem until I stopped nursing about four years ago and had massive hormonal changes (menopause). I guess I have to eat like a bird & exercise daily if I want to ever be fit again. Tonight I asked a friend if she would be my “sponsor,” & she said yes! She’s truly a health guru. I’m inspired by your self-discipline, Barbie!

  3. I am in my late 30’s and the weight I never totally lost the weight I gained when I carried my three babies. I am looking forward to reading this series.

  4. I talk about, think about, and recognize my need for exercise if Im to keep up with my young grandsons but have yet to begin! Congratulations on your success and dedication! I admire that!

  5. I always had a high metabolism so I never worried about my weight. Though I lost all the pregnancy weight from my first child, my second was a different story. Since then, I’ve gained a few pounds every year until now I’m at the high end of the ideal weight range. I don’t necessarily want to lose any–I just don’t want to gain anymore. My husband finally splurged and bought us a recumbent bike. I’ve been trying to exercise at least 3x a week, and we also have gone to a low carb diet.

    • Maintaining weight can be just as hard as losing it! Congratulations on the exercise and healthier eating choices. Keep it up!

  6. That’s awesome, Barbie! I’ve seen my weight sneak up a little at a time in my 50’s. 🙁 Last summer I lost a few pounds and it felt so good, but this winter those pounds found me again. I’ll look forward to your series here.
