I am 66 and would still love to lose that last 5 pounds. I have arthritis that sometimes interferes with my exercise but I was generally able to do 5 days a week on the treadmill until I fell on the stairs and hurt my hip. I believe my hip is healed enough to go back to doing the treadmill. We live on 22 acres in rural Texas that is mostly taken up by crawfish ponds and a larger pond so I can walk the levees when the weather permits. We have 4 dogs and 3 chickens that I tend to so I am generally lightly active without the treadmill sessions and moderately active with the treadmill. My dh and I are in our 46th year of marriage. I am retired but dh is still working.

Fit Bit
My Android phone only shows google fit under data sharing. No other programs are shown. I have both Fatsecret & Fitbit on the phone. I think with latest update, Android will no longer connect Fitbit to FatSecret, at least not on Verizon Motorola G6. Sigh!

Sara329, you are doing great! Stay the course and increase your walking if you can! It really helps the joints as well as the calorie burn. My doctor says it has helped my cardiac risk factor stay in the safe zone so I am able to avoid cholesterol lowering medication. (Walking on the treadmill is the only exercise I do). Smile

I am 5'4" and weigh 144. I was 139 until I discontinued my hormone pill and gained weight. I can't seem to get back to 139 but will keep trying. I avoid all fried food and try to eat a high protein,high fiber diet that is under 1500 calories.
