Looking for a diet buddy around same age and problems if possible. I am 70 with limited mobility but need to lose 5 stone. I like reading needlework knitting and card making. Any help would be much appreciated

Can you get some small weights and start lifting weights? Muscle burns calories while we are sitting so that could be a little extra for you.

I'm not in your age range, nor do I have any health problems, but I'll support you Smile Keep letting us know how you're doing, I'll always reply.

I agree with the weights! They don't need to be heavy. I have wristbands that are just 450g, for example.

Stay strong!

PS: I do like knitting, even though I almost never do Sad

Hi, Chippyite! I'm couple of months shy of 66 years old, have a little over 43 pounds (3 stone) to lose (already down 73 pounds, or 5.25 stone), and also have limited ability for walking. (Oh, and I'm an Anglophile from way back!) I saw your posts and thought I'd reply to say, "I know!!" Hang in there, m'dear!

Im hanging in there but have read about someone losing 77lb in 3 months. I just wonder how that was done. Mine looks miserable compared to that.
