56 years old and gained ~70 pounds when I hit 40 and tried to be vegetarian. I replaced meat with fat and here I am (that only lasted 3 years but the weight remains). I sit at work most of the time and then go home, eat and sit. I need some inspiration...can't seem to find it within. Anyone have some wise words for me that may help me get my mind right? Thanks

If you need inspiration you need only to read prior posts in this forum. They will tell you our stories of success and failure and how to achieve either.

First thing in any weight loss journey, I think, is discerning why you want to lose the weight. What do you want? I think Special K (though they drive me crazy) nailed it with their new campaign, "What will you gain when you lose?" What are you doing this for? Write it down. Hang it up. Look at it. Get your mind right and your body will follow, both in your ability to make smart food choices, but also in regard to keeping you motivated to get moving in SOME way. Prayers for you. Feel free to buddy me.
