I am at an age where I really have problems losing weight. Last year I regained 30 lbs ater losing 70 lbs two years before that. I have not been able to lose any of it although I have tried since last fall. I would like any input as to how other people lose weight when they are 60 and older.

I am so with you on the sloooooowwww. Like Carla said, it just seems to be the case!! In March I lost only .8 lb for the whole month. But last month I lost 5 lbs. Who knows what May will bring!! I sure don't. But if we stick to the plan and log, get those green checks and move, it does work.

Thanks for the input. It helps to know that others are experiencing this painfully slow process!

Janis, the only thing I'm doing differently than the other times I have lost weight is that I am incorporating weights three times a week.

I think the most important thing I have learned is to be patient. There have literally been months where I lost a pound or even less. But then, for whatever reason, I'll lose 5 pounds in a month. I'm not trying to understand it any more, just accepting that it is slow.

Join us. we are in the same boat! but this program really works. have you started keeping the diary yet? that was a big step for me and really helped me get a handle on what I was really doing, which was eating many more calories than I thought I was eating. the second suprise was that my treadmill was grossly overestimating the calories I was using when i was exercising. Since correcting these errors I am finally, slowly, getting back to my ideal weight. Keep in touch, diary faithfully, consider joining a challenge or two and most of all enjoy the program - it works.
