Hello Fellow Cathletes, I want to start out saying that I admire all of the girls (and guys) on this forum. I do not post that often but I’ve been inspired by so many of you; learned so much and know and feel that this is the best and most intelligent forum around. So I am approaching all of you like a Best Friend and just putting my heart out to all of you. I am 55 years old, married 32 years, no kids, parents are no longer alive (miss them very much); one sister in California (miss her too) – just a little bit about me. Been working out to Cathe for a very long time – she is the best trainer out there, no doubt!! Anyway, lately I’ve been feeling so unmotivated with life in general. It feels like there is no purpose for me on this planet and no reason to pursue anything - no goals. Sometimes I feel that eating healthy, counting my calories and working out is all a waste of time because life can throw you a huge wrench with an awful disease, getting old (as I am) or some other issue that can stop you from doing all of these things. It’s like I’ve lost interest in everything that I use to enjoy, even though I continue to exercise because I know that if I stop doing that, I will just feel worse. Also, the thought that in just 20 years I will be 75 years old is frightening me lately as I do not have kids to look after me when I’m really old – as I took care of my parents until the very end. So what I am asking is how do I get my “groove” back? How do I feel “happy” again? I know that so many of you have been through much more challenging situations in your lives and I honestly respect you and feel inspired by you for getting through it by posting on this Forum. I just don’t know where to go that can truly understand this lack of interest or this feeling of apathy. Anyway, thank you for reading this and as always I really appreciate everybody here – everyone is so supportive, inspiring and very smart.
