I'm 56 with 100+ lbs to lose. Currently doing a low(ish) carb diet and exercise in order to avoid going on meds for Type 2 Diabetes. I've lost 20 lbs since late August. Trying hard to not be discouraged by the sheer number I need to lose! Plugging away at it....

I'm 52 and although I'm only trying to lose a few more pounds, as you all know, it's sooooo hard as we age! And, at least for me, it's 2 steps forward followed by 1 back... or actually 2 lbs lost followed by 1 gained!
God grant me the serenity

courage to change the things I can;

I turn 49 next week and have lost over 100 lbs and have kept it off over the last 2 years. It's 80% what and how much you put in your mouth and only 20% exercise. Anyone can succeed if you educate yourself on nutrition and not try any magic diet plans that promise you'll lose the weight fast. You don't need to pay anyone a single penny to get your health back. Trust me.

My son lost 120 in about 15 months. He lost it gradual enough to not have all the hanging skin issues. I want to lose 100 lbs and want to do it with about a lb a week. Since I am older I want to give my skin time to shrink naturally. Long and slow is not bad and I am following my son's formula of log everything I eat & exercise. I know I can do it too.

Hello mtaber. I'm 66 so have you beat. The "new" Atkins diet approach works very well for me, though I do not try to stay within the induction phase guidelines--they are a bit too restricted for me and I don't feel well on a carb level that is that low. The general approach, however, is great: it's a high protein, low carb diet focusing on getting your carbs from veggies and fruits. A lot of people are horrified at the Atkins approach, but they are thinking of the original version, years ago. The new one even has a regimen for vegetarians. You might buy the book and read about it and see what you think. I guess the main thing is, "slow and steady wins the race." Good luck!

Hi I am 53 and starting at 50lbs in the beginning, once I reach my goal I can reset it. Setting myself up to win not lose. Keep a positive attitude

Hi there. I'm 54 and am going to lose the 26 pounds that I received as a gift when I went through Menopause. I hate to seem ungrateful but I'm really not enjoying this! Wink Low carb is the only way I can lose.
