performance: losing 0.1 lb a week

I'm a young 64 years old, single, and live on a small ranch in Northern New Mexico just south of Santa Fe. I am an animal person and serve on the board of the Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Humane Society. I have six dogs, 1 cat, 3 horses, chickens and guinea fowl. I lead an active life, and ride my horses, though am not as able to do all I used to do due to a back injury two years ago. I was always tall and slim, but the weight has sneaked up on me since menopause and I am now determined to get it off! I'm tired of this belly fat and not being able to look good in clothes. Yuk!

Hello mtaber. I'm 66 so have you beat. The "new" Atkins diet approach works very well for me, though I do not try to stay within the induction phase guidelines--they are a bit too restricted for me and I don't feel well on a carb level that is that low. The general approach, however, is great: it's a high protein, low carb diet focusing on getting your carbs from veggies and fruits. A lot of people are horrified at the Atkins approach, but they are thinking of the original version, years ago. The new one even has a regimen for vegetarians. You might buy the book and read about it and see what you think. I guess the main thing is, "slow and steady wins the race." Good luck!

Starting over. New scale. On my old scale I would have been 183.2. Have lost ground but feel newly determined.

Here it is, October 26th, and I feel like I'm practically starting over. I've been lax about weight loss for 2-3 months. I always eat "well," so "poorly" ...
