I have always been a healthy person and still am as a 56 yr. old woman. What I deal with now is Arthritis in my hip and I need to lose some weight. This is the 1st time in my life I've had a weight problem. Aging is bad enough without being overweight also. Losing weight would directly help or eliminate my arthritis pain. I tend to get depressed over this as aging is bad enough without being fat too.
