Hi Phyllis, welcome to spark people, there is lots of support here. I've been with sparks for almost 8 weeks, and I just love it. I know what you mean about not losing weight. I'm 50 also and that's when it really got hard to lose weight. I was a weight watchers member and lost some weight but was always hungry. I found that I wasn't taking in enough calories, because you know everything goes by points. Anyway since SP I've lost 14 lbs and it is a lot easier than I thought.

Just hang in there and take one day at a time. I always make sure a track and get in some kind of exercise every day, maybe it will work for you too.

Hope to hear from you again, stop by and check out my spark page. emoticon

Hello everyone,

This is my first post on the boards. I joined on June 6 and so far have lost about 5 pounds. My goal is to lose 123 pounds by August 12, 2012. I have been cruising the boards and see so many encouraging posts from people just like me. I am 50 and have tried every diet there is (I think).

Anyway, thanks for being here and I appreciate all of you. Keep up the good work.
