I'm down by 24 lbs since December. My RDI is down to 1600. Ugh! I love gym days because then I can eat more. Gym is two hour-long sessions a week of Z-Health workouts. Effective for feeling better and helping move the fat off but a real ass kicker.

nearly 50 is nothing these days , go for it.

I would recommend long power walks on some of you non gym days, easy on the joints and very effective for weight loss and general health

im 49 next week and about the same size I was at 19 with a bit more muscle. Im not ready for the pipe and slippers and gut !

I'm 51. Thanks for the advice. My Z-Health coach is pointing me toward water aerobics, but we'll see. At least walking I can be fully dressed! How long did it take you to get from where you were to where you're at? I'm presuming there's a reason you're on this.

After years of yo yo weight loss and gain I found myself about March 2012 at 215 lbs 6 months later I was down to 164 which I have maintained to now fairly comfortably

for me it was all about accepting and committing to a Lifestyle change and above all else being consistent

I still enjoy many 'forbidden' foods but in moderation but overall my eating is very healthy mixed diet and I exercise regularly and effectively but not excessively
