Hi all, I am Stella. I will be 66 on the 28th January and married 20 years in May. I have 1 son and 4 step children, all adults now with kids of their own. I have an underactive thyroid which makes it easier to put on weight than take it off but it's the evening binges that are really to blame. I spent last year losing the same half stone ( 7lbs ) over and over again but this year I intend to gat my act together and lose 52 lbs.

I don't have any friends on here its a pity because id like nothing more than to have a few support messages after runs and I wouldn't feel so alone. I'm not sure if I'm in the wrong generation or if people feel intimidated I have no idea. I certainly enjoy supporting other people if I can, hence joining people in my own age group, who must find it as difficult as me to keep trim, gone of the days we could eat anything drink anything stay the same shape, and so, here I am.
A little about myself I'm 53, Married with two grown up kids one grandchild. I live and work in Nottingham UK. I like to have a goal for most years something to keep me motivated, and therefore Healthy. Although I'm 53 I still think I'm 21 and sometimes think maybe I should slow down. In saying that my Goal for this year (I must be Crazy) but I'm attempting 12 Half Marathons this year, I am no athlete, so I will be plodding around then in 2 hours ish.
So Far i'm booked in for:
(list of races snipped)
I would be a lot more comfortable if I could lose some weight so I'm working on that. I walk to work and back 30 minutes each way and I use Garmin devices and MFP in sync and most of the time I log my food, if I do a 10 mile run I don't usually bother though. I like hiking too but I'll need to concentrate on long runs on a Sunday this year not a hike in the hills.
That's a little about me and I'm looking forward meeting people and adding some friends fingers crossed.
