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!
