Hi, I really understand where you are. The choice to begin is a good step and also a hard one. I began too, in March... and I can already see big benefits. I am 67 and due to medicine side effects and pain decreasing my activity Over about 4 years I had a weight increase of 65+. During that time I had also changed my food habits in a negative way.

My goal in March was 12 weeks and focusing on losing 10%, what the knee surgeon recommended before he could even consider doing a knee replacement. I am steadily losing and the bone on bone pain in my knee is so much more tolerable. I hope you will stay focused on your is such a good reason!
