Just beginning on You on a Diet program. Over 50 and have 50 pounds to lose. I have a lot of belly fat from stress (I believe). Work full time then go home and take care of eldery father and disable brother. Not sure if I have time to exercise. I believe I need to rev up metabolism somehow. Any help is appreciated.

Hi Sher! I love making new friends and would love to have you as a buddy! I can see that you really have your hands full! This site is full of lots of great people and someone is on here most of the time if you need to talk or have a question. Welcome and I hope to get to know you better!

Hi ChiTownSher and Candyann -
I am just starting this diet today also - I have 20-25 lbs to lose and have started and stopped so many times!!!

Any pointers about this diet - it just seems to make sense.

I would love to be buddies with you!

HI! My name is Brenda, and I'm 46 with at least 40 lbs to lose. The show the other day with Dr. Oz is what got me motivated. I'm not necessarily following the plan, buthave done this before. I lost 80 lbs a while back, but have put about 20 back on. I want to nip this in the bud!! And.. I'd love some buddies to do it with!!

I'll be your buddy. I have about 50 pds to lose and need a buddy as well. I had a baby 9 months ago and I am back to what I was when I got pregnant. Now, I need to get to a healthy weight.

ooohhh and the best thing that helped jumpstart my metabolism was Shakeology. It truely is amazing, the healthiest meal of the day. Its really filling and it's only 140 calories. It has also really helped my energy level. I use the chocolate and it really helps with my sweets cravings!!
