I'm also a new member and hope I can find my way back to this thread the next time I'm online.
I turned 60 this year. I was down for the past few years, then gained twenty pounds in about 18 months - and then some more.
Eventually found a thyroid issue, which is now taken care of and am able to lose again. Have lost seven so far and have about 16 to go.
I've been losing and gaining twenty-five pounds for most of my life and just want to stay the same!
Also - I may be making my first trip out of the country this winter to visit Thailand! That just came up so gives me even more incentive to work hard at food changes and exercise.
