Greetings from Italy!


Recommended Posts

Hi all, my name is saretta (ok, it's really Sara, but I always use saretta on-line, go figure) and I am an almost 50 year old skinny chick. Have always been the 90 pound weakling type, though in my 30s that turned into the cellulite-laden, skinny-fat chick. Have always been the sedentary, anti-sports, anti-any-unnecessary-movement, call-me-totally-lazy type. Until I hit my 40s and suddenly fell in love with lifting weights and running. I really don't know how that happened, but thank goodness it did!

Now, my goal is to start lifting heavier weights and get more muscle definition. I have so many q's about how to get there. I live in southern Italy, so everyone not from here always says "oooh, aaah, you're so lucky, blah, blah, blah" and I guess I am, but there is NO support here for an almost 50 year old skinny lady who wants to lift heavier weights and get some muscle definition (so important as I head into all that aging holds in store for me). People here think I'm pretty weird for wanting to do that. Not that it bothers me, I just keep on keeping on, but my prob is I feel all alone and without a plan, or a guide to help me get there. Hopefully, I will find some good info and tips from the rest of you!

Oh, btw, I eat totally gluten and lactose free (because I'm intolerant to those foods) and 75% paleo, so my diet is pretty on target, I think.

Anyway, that's my story :smile-new:

I'm in my 40s and just started lifting weights last year and starting to get into running.

They call that "single player mode" and a lot of us are in the same position. Thank god for online forums.

Welcome.
