Hello everyone! I am 47 and need to lose (according to the experts) 107 lbs. I am not currently following any specific diet meal plan but instead trying to eat fresh fruits and vegys and lean meats. Also trying to stay away from processed foods and wheat products. By just modifying the way I eat, I have lost 5 lbs. Yesterday I started the 10 Minute Trainer and actually liked the first 3-10 minute programs I tried. I am also trying to journal my food and exercise since just about every program recommends it. I am looking forward to positive changes in my life!

I to am going the healthy route, but have decided to try at least 3 week with watching my ratios. This means that I have a set CAL count, not to go over each day, and I have a ratio of Carbs: Protein:Fat that i watch. Due to medical issues, I also have a daily goal of 30+ grams of natural fiber. It is hard to count all this stuff, but I plan my days food the night before, put it in my chart and we'll see where i am in 3 weeks. So far, 3 days in and down 2.3 lbs.... so I t may be worth it!
