Hey there....so glad to see a group for those of us over 50! I've been on CK for about three years, but this last year I've been pretty flaky about recording/blogging. The good news is that I maintained the same weight throughout the year -- going up and down about five pounds. It was a confidence builder for me, because one of the fears I've had is losing only to regain it again.

Now I'm ready to get moving on down the scale again. I am SO ready to see the 160s! The closest I came to it this year was 173, which was my low.

I enjoy recording and tracking my food, once I get going...so I'm looking forward to doing that again. The hardest thing for me is to incorporate exercise into my life. Walking is my exercise of choice. I have lower back issues and tend to overprotect and probably use that as an excuse to not do some things (big admission here). But walking is good. I would like to get some stretching exercises routinely and will work towards that.

I look forward to "meeting" all you other members -- and getting and giving support! I see there is another Susan in this group, so I'll go by my nickname: Suz.

New member to the group, having been on CK since April. Started out at 298 but haven't weighed myself in eight months. I figure i'm in the 250's, but have found it freeing to not be watching the scale each week. The CK cal guidelines seem to be providing me the guardrails I need.
