I'm 59, can I play? lol, I've been on maintenance for a while and am happy where I am, healthy and know I have to lose a few more lbs but don't want to buy a whole new set of clothes $$ bad excuse but I'll do it soon. In the mean time I eat totally healthy and am good with my blood work etc, Need to work out more so getting up from playing on the floor with grandkids isn't so taxing.


Hey, I was going to say the same thing! You could have been describing me, except I don't have grandkids.

So, is 59 and a half close enough?

EVERYONES TODAY WILL BE...
"Embrace the hunger" Everyone feels hunger from time to time; thin people and fat people and those on diets and those not on diets. People just roll with it - like feeling tired or hot or cold or a little bored. But when we're trying to lose weight we rail against the hunger and feel compelled to fight it. But don't fight it - embrace it. Ah, I'm hungry. I'm human. I'm alive. I feel hunger - that's good - that means I haven't over-eaten. SO I say "embrace the hunger." OK, so it doesn't work every time, but sometimes it keeps me from eating those office donuts.

Crazy little tricks to keep your diet on track
For motivation: on Friday morning, as I'm waking up I ask myself to honestly respond to this question; did I eat healthy foods with an appropriate portion size and was I active enough all week? If I can honestly answer yes, as soon as I get to my office I pull my hidden sticker chart from my desk drawer and add a reward sticker. Believe me, that sticker chart, which is on it's 30th week today, has helped me to make many good decisions over the weeks.
