75 year-old diabetic, trying to follow Keto diet to lower glucose and lose weight. I'd like to stick to Keto this time. My goal is to lose 40 lbs. My short term goal is to lose six lbs by my birthday, June 12. The other goal is to drop my A1c from 7.5 to 6 by mid July. Exercise: that's a hard one at my age. Texas in the summer doesn't encourage walking outdoors. I need to get back on the stationary bike and build up to 30 minutes 3 X a week by the end of June.
Me: 45 years as a librarian, 12 years as a teacher, some of those years overlapped! Tried to transplant my Texan to Oregon and Washington - either one was ok since I grew up in the northwest. He wanted to head back to Texas after only three years, so we raised our two boys and a foster daughter on the home place in north Texas. Raising kids on a farm is pretty special! Best decision we made! We're still there, about 45 years later.
I retired at 69 and afraid I would be bored, I started volunteering at our non-profit library,filled my time with Toastmasters, Texas Library Association, Church, gardening, gym membership with my husband, cruising, and family history research. Did I mention I'm a computer-holic too? Several months later I realized I had overloaded myself with busy-ness! I didn't have time to write the children's book I wanted to write, or learn to paint, or do a lot of other things. So by now I have given up Toastmasters and being active in the library association. That helped, but I don't know if I will ever finish that book about gardening with my grandson Sean! And there's never enough time with my 5 grandkids! As for giving up volunteering at the library -- librarians never quit, they just check out!

what is your goal weight, 5'3 and 5'4 ladies?
I'm 76, used to be 5' 1 1/2" but age seems to shrink you! 5 feet now! Needing to shrink myself down to 140 and then I'll set another goal, but it will all depend on how I feel and look.For my height and age, I ought to be around 110, but not sure I want to get that low. I'm just looking at the 140 goal now.
