Hi all,

I'm 52 and want to lose 40 lbs. I started induction about 2 weeks ago. I can't wait until I feel good about the way I feel and look. I'm trying to set short term goals of approximately 2 lbs per week/week1/2. I'm glad to have found 3Fc's, but also a 50's plus forum as well!

Oh my, I'm so thankful for this group. I am on a "counting calories" diet and I need to lose 40 pounds. I know I can do this. All your comments have encouraged me to tackle this!! I'm going to also try to lose 2 pounds a week like Rob. We can do this!!!

Hi Breezy, 2lbs a week is doable! (is that a word?) Let's go for it.

Default Hello everyone

Just thought I would check in, I have been awol for awhile, I hope everyone is doing well and in good spirits, I have been busy studying, trying to get the old brain working, at 55 I didn't think study would be easy but I am getting there. On the weight loss journey, it is going slow but I know I can do it just need the motivation, I have lost 1kg that's about 2lb in the last 2 weeks not a bi amount but at least it is a start, it will be a long journey but I am sure I will reach my destination on this train called weight loss, I just need to keep going. Well I wish everyone a lovely and productive day
Take care,

Julie

weight2lose---where do you report your weight loss? Can we do it in a regular thread? I noticed the one that began about a week or two ago but I didn't know about it or I would have joined it. It would be fun to start up two different groups and see who can lose the fastest...lol...well, maybe that wouldn't go over very well...but then maybe there is a place to report weight loss and I just don't know about it. When I have time I'll look around more....yes, let's go for it!!!

Hi Breezy...I don't know where to post weekly results. I'm working on trying to start a blog/photo journal, but that's going to take some time. Maybe a 50's+ check in thread?

Hi Julie,

In many ways the first few pounds are the most important to lose. I think that we all appreciate affirmation that our efforts have an effect. Keep that train rolling and your efforts will be rewarded.

well, weight2lose--let's just post how we're doing here. Would that work for you? I'm doing good today. I'm doing a calorie count type of diet because it works the best for me. And I've found when I count calories I am more aware of what I'm actually eating....it's no wonder I need to lose 40 pounds! I've not weighed yet so can't report on that yet. But WE CAN DO THIS.

What plan are you doing?

Who will join us? All are welcome!!!! Tell us how you are losing...

Hi Breezy,

I'm doing low carb, because it's easy for me to do that. Last thing that I need is an excuse on why something can't be done - and I'll find that excuse! lol I'm down 5-6 lbs since 1/2/13. I also posted a before and after photo online.

This photo caused me to get on a diet once I was shown the photo:

http://s1300.photobucket.com/albums/...nt=before1.jpg

Very humbling.

In six months time, I dropped 60+ lbs to this:

I'm using everything that I can to keep me motivated.

Wow--good for you to lose the weight. last winter I lost 35 pounds but put 10 of them back on...maintaining hasn't been easy. I only need to lose 30-40 pounds now!

You can do this weight2lose--and although it isn't easy to keep the weight off, it is doable. I like low-carb diets too--they work pretty well.

Hang in there!!

Hi Misty, I agree it's doable. And its working! Maintaining can be tough. You hang in there too and make sure you come back here!!

Julie - great news on your weight loss. Progress is incremental, so a bunch of small improvements makes for long term success! I'm glad that you found both photos helpful! The 'before' photo was difficult for me to share, not very flattering. But it's out there and will remain there until I reach target, at which point it's coming down for good!

Good Morning,
I have been reading through your posts and thought I would join you. I am 61, started doing Wonderslim last August, by December,I had lost about 18 lbs.

After the holidays,I realized that I had not been totally committed to the program. For some unknown reason, I had felt that if I was 1/2 in I could continue to lose weight. You would think at this age and dieting most of my adult life, I would know better .

Anyways, I re-committed at the beginning of the year and this time I am doing it right.

I look forward to reading your posts and getting to know all of you.

Oh, I am down another 4lbs since my restart.

Welcome aboard, Irish51. Looks like you had great success last year, and you're off to another excellent start this year. This is a great board that you found. I joined just a little while ago and I'm glad that I did.
