You can do it! I have lost 100lbs and kept it off for years. Now I am younger than you but regardless of that I have done it AND I know others that have done it too. You can definitely get it done. Welcome!!

Thank you, Thank you for your kind words and encouragement. I have re-started this weight loss task so many times and failed I wonder if it can be done. I have succeeded is so many other things but weight loss eludes me. I don't understand how I can want something so much yet I keep failing at it. Thank you. emoticon

Patti, emoticon to Sparkpeople! It's not only possible, but many of us have lost a lot of weight here. I'm 63 and have lost 75 lbs in a little over 2 years with SP, with about 15 to go, so yes, it CAN be done. Get involved in some active teams and in other aspects of the site. Read success stories, articles, etc., and track your food and exercise. The lbs will come off, little by little. Good luck! emoticon

Hi. I am 54 yrs old and need to lose over 100lbs. I really need to hear from women in my age group that have succeeded and from those that are in the same process as me. I really need to know that this task is humanly possible if I am consistent and stay with the program.
