performance: losing 0.5 lb a week

I am 56 yo and have battled my weight most of my adult life. Classic yo-yo dieter over the years. I just recently realized that I am remind myself of my mother though much earlier. She was 73 when she passed and use to complain of having no energy, had bad feet so she couldn't walk and was over weight most of her life also. I feel as if I just stepped into her shoes! On one hand...think that at 56 I am still somewhat young. I am a Nurse and work mostly with the older generation and am constantly reminded what a youngster I am :) In truth a lot of my patients are in better shape than me. I have some 90 year olds that put me to shame. My husband of 40 years has never had a weight problem, of course he also never sits still, eats like a bird and comes from a family that weight control was never an issue. His mother is 87 and all but 108 pounds. So, at this point in my life I feel like I am an embarrassment to him, I can't keep up with him. He can run circles around me. So, I am trying to lose the weight but more importantly get healthier. I am not getting any younger and at this rate I will develope health problems that come from obesity. I have 3 grown children and 8 grandchildren that I would like to be around for. So, I am determined to lose weight and begin walking. Hopefully when I see my Doctor in July my blood pressure will be down along with my weight.

Starting over
Hello everyone! After quitting smoking in January, gaining too much weight I am back and wish to restart my journey. This time I am going to do Atkins as WW for me has way too many carbs. My question is, is there a way for me to change my diet plan and starting weight on Fatsecret? I have looked and couldn't find out where to do that. I would like to delete my prior weight as it is too depressing Crying or Very sad and enter my current weight with a start date of 4/9/12. Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks, Mary

Accurate weight scale
Thanks everyone! After much review I went and bought the Omron HCM-516. I will probably only use the weight tracking but figured my hubby would enjoy the body composition feature.

Accurate weight scale
I need to get a new scale. What I thought would be an easy process is overwhelming! There are so many choices out thereConfused
All I want is a scale that is accurate, good quality and has weight recall. I would like one that shows what my weight was previously. Does anyone know of a good one out there? Would appreciate any advice.
Thanks, Mary
