Hello, I just joined this group and I really need some motivation and encouragement. I am 60 years old, diabetic and have high blood pressure. I need to lose for health reasons as well as being able to get into my clothes because I really can't afford to keep buying bigger ones and would not wear them if I did. They all look so bad on me. But at my weight, everything does look bad.

Hi dancingsky,
Love your user name. I too am 60 years old and I know exactly how
your feeling. I'm doing a kind of modifyed Atkins and it's working.
At our age we can't just magically lose this excess weight in a matter
of just a few months. I'm of the mind set that SLOW and SURE win in
end. Take care and good luck!!...Marlene

I am new to this site.. I am 60 years old and have been stuck on this weight for over a year now.. I did manage to lose some before.. I have problems converting kilograms into Lbs.. I have at least 20 kilograms to lose.. I also do not know how I am going to do this... I just want to get into a healthy lifestyle that works with rostered shifts of different lengths and times including some night shifts.....
