I'm a 55-year-old, married mother of four. I began my latest fitness quest on August 17th, 2015 at my highest weight ever, 295. (It took me a long time to own that number.) It's much harder for me to lose weight at this age than it ever was before, but I am certain I will succeed. One thing that finally seems to have sunk in is that I'm not married to a particular WOE. If something's not working quite well or has stopped working for some reason, I am open to tweaking or changing it completely instead of giving up.

So here's to a new year and each of us being our best selves!

Advice for beginning healthy eating for weight loss
The calories in=calories out approach doesn't work for me anymore. Different ways of eating (WOE) work for different people. Right now, I am doing low carb/high fat. When it stops working, I'll change it up. Are you following a particular plan right now?

Like DaFox said, you're doing great. But if I HAD to drop something, it would be the rice. On the Glycemic Index, it's the same as eating jelly beans. Again, though, a two pound loss per week is very good.

This journey is ridiculously difficult (for me, anyway), but these little victories feel AMAZING!

Finally broke through a 6-week plateau! I won't be starting the year at as low a weight as I'd hoped, but I'm still very happy I'm not where I was two ...
