Hi Floppy!

Good for you for taking that positive step.

I'm in total agreement with you, in that I can't be doing with faddy diets. My body needs ALL food groups and that includes Chocolate!

HOWEVER - I have dropped from a size 20 to a 12-14 through a mixture of WeightWatchers, Healthy eating and exercise.

You can do it!

How much do you want to lose?

Thanks Red.

WW has changed now so that there are a couple of plans to suit you. the good thing about it is that you don't hve to give anything up.

Flop

I noticed on the age thread we're the same age, I don't know what happens to a womens body - hormones - menapause all of it sucks. I don't dare go shopping for clothes & I have gift cards from Christmas & refuse to use them until I delete some of this crap thats going South.

I'll play this weight loss with you - with others involved it'll motivate me to loose & work at it.. I've started walking - @ 3 miles 2-3 times a week,exercise is not a option due to my back etc.. Unfortunetly I have a scale.

So, I'm 50 yrs old this September - 5'8" and 188lbs. 2-l9-07 Monday..

Post your stats

Here we go - Good Luck

I agree, i find it a lot harder to lose weight now than when i was younger, the factors i think could be affecting it are i dont smoke anymore(3 yrs gone feb 4th and its an appetite suppressant) ive had a baby and im not working anymore(used to have a physical job) even though i do 3 classes at the gym each week i still find it tough, i used to think people used age/kids etc as an excusefor having difficulty losing weight but im sure all these things affect it

I've found that my body/ hormones have changed every 7 years, or there abouts. It's defo harder to lose it as you get older, but I wonder if it's more change of lifestyle.

I found it easier to diet, when i earned less...... I was really skinny as a student!:wah:

Flop

I totally understand - I've had @ 12 surgerys on my stomach area - I don't have children I had tumors - hysterectomy - appendix - scar tissue etc.. During one of the surgerys they ruptured a disc in my back (epiderol).

I can't stop the aging process but I can't stop the frump.

After my nephew was killed and coming home to my husband diagnosed with cancer, I went into a major depression, eating at all times of the day.

I want to be 160 - tomorrow..!! I refuse to buy new clothes until then.

So, should we post our stats weekly - biweekly - monthly. You decide

I think this is the encouragement we both need.

Dear Flop,

I completely support your goals! I stand to lose 110 pounds myself. Ouch.

Please don't beat yourself up about those dressing room mirrors though. They are made to be unforgiving and no one looks good in them. :)

Oh lord I should get on the ban wagon as well. Menapause was not kind to my waistline period. :-5

I just got to the point where I didn't care anymore about watching my weight, and damn that wasn't a good idea..:lips:

My daughter just got married this weekend and they will be moving into their new place the first of March. I will then get back on my exercise routine and start eating better hopefully. :D

It was fun while it lasted not caring what I ate but oh lordy the pounds have packed on.. what to get some off before I turn 60 in September.
ALOHA!!

Here you guys- this'll help put you off your feed! I got it from Sunny's thread "This site is so funny!"

It's Weight Watcher recipes from 1974. Apparently it wasn't just the clothes that were bad.
