I'm looking for a group to keep me motivated. I normally fall off plan after a week. I just turned 60, but I lift weights and run the treadmill several times a week.

I am sure that you are strong willed enough to do it! Just remember the decision to do it or not is just the weight loss battle in your head. I get adkin bars for my weak moments. I also have blue bunny sweet freedom sugar free fudge cycles. Try to keep things in your house for emergency weak moments and remember, drink water, eat every 2-3 hrs and keep the protein up and the carbs down. One thing that I have found with the Atkins diet is that it is to hard for me to keep the carbs under 20 a day. I make my goal under 50-60 a day. I am still losing weight and it is a bit easier. I have gone from 321 to 232 since the first of September with these things I have listed. Good luck and stay strong!

Hello and Help Please
I agree. Gaining 30 lbs in a month when you have actually been doing things to make yourself healthier is alarming to me. The water retention alarms me as well. If your doctor says there is nothing wrong, ...
