TZUMUMSY - 6:46AM UTC, Nov 23rd 2008

Just joined --figuring out how to get going for real this time, but mainly stick with it. Any pointers appreciated!

Have lost a few pounds, but feel stalled out.
Stress eating has taken over!
Am trying to relax and remember my goal.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!

I joined CK approximately 1 month ago. It has helped me, by really remembering how much calories I put in my mouth. Since I am mid 50's, and recently had surgery(laid up for 6 weeks with no exercise), I have put on weight, on top of the weight I had already needed to lose.
However, since I am an RN, with extensive education in this category, I think that expecting to lose 13# in 1 month, is not a reasonable goal. Ideally, a person should lose 1-2 #/week, so that their metabolism can adjust. This is really hard, as I have gotten set into eating modes, that I didn't have before. Also, being older makes it harder to lose. And exercise is more difficult due to aching joints, etc. Keep the faith. Slow is better than the alternate!

How are you doing. I am new to all of this. I hope I can lose 13 pounds in a month. Hopefully since the last time you were on here, you lost more.

Do you find this working for you?

I am 53 also. Have you found that Calorie King works for you? I need to stick with something. I have gained so much weight and I need to lose it.

Hi Dina

I am new, and I wondered how you are doing on Calorie King? Have you had much progress since January?

Hi all, I am 55 and have been with CK for about 2 weeks. I have had a life-long battle with gaining and losing weight, in spite of being very active in the gym, (Zumba, Body Pump, yoga, swimming) and a very healthy eater overall. I believe that the CK way may be the only way, (the lifelong Weight Watchers membership just didn't work out) I am concentrating on just putting it down on paper every day and be as accruate as possible about what I am recording. Just trying to do this has given me a lot of insight as to what is keeping my weight on. So, maybe it is part age-related, but it's definately part (too many) calories too! I'd love to see this group become active.

Hi. I'm new to this group, but not to CK. Since last March, I've lost and maintained about a 15 pound drop, now want to keep going to drop another 18 pounds. I'm 53.

Hi there, I just joined today and saw your post from Dec. I'm curious how you're doing on CK.

Hi Arlene,

I just joined tonight and wanted to say hello since you are the next most recent post in this group. Hope the group gets a bit more active.

Hope you had a good day,

I would also appreciate any help with motivation. I used to lose weight for some man but now I am 72 and don't seem to be able to do it for the most important person, me

I just joined the group today. I will hit the big 60 in February. I need to lose some weight and like so many people have struggled with it for decades. I have been going to the gym for about 3 months. I do zumba which is alot of fun. No weight loss yet but I am firming up. At this point in my life I want to be healthy and fit. Good luck to you and everyone in the 50 Plus Group. I too would appreciate any tips or advice anyone has.
