Tip on drinking water is good...especially for cramping or circulation and feeling tired!

people face significant physical and hormonal changes as their age change. The recommended dose of vitamin E for men older than age 50 is 200 IUs two times per day.

When I'm at the computer, I wiggle my feet and move my legs to help burn calories and keep my circulation good. I'm 62, so losing was harder and still is, but I don't want to live the rest of my life obese.
Stay with it everyday and don't quit. ATKINS works for me.

In the same boat here, trying to lose 30ish lbs and water is a huge challenge for me too. I have this posted at my desk at work and at home on the fridge as a reminder. Hope it helps :)

Drinking water at the correct time - Maximizes its effectiveness on the Human body :
1 glass of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs

1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion

1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure

1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack

58 here, and I'm trying to drop the 20 that I picked up in the past couple of months when I quit doing everything. Burned out, I suppose.

I keep my bottles of water in the freezer, pull out a couple in the morning and can drink as they thaw. Especially good for hot summer day walks!

I thought it was going to be harder (I'm 62) but it's working okay over the last six months. I do manage to drink lots of water. I keep several bottles in rotation in the refrigerator and always have one with me, even at work. When I think I'm hungry, I take a big swig of water. I like lemon or lime if possible. And I know this may or may not be connected, but I've cut way back on my consumption of diet soda and substitute water, and I feel much better.

I like Mrschris56 idea of nothing processed... that's hard, but I am closer to it than I was... mostly because I'm being very careful about sodium. Real food tastes better anyhow!

Yep, it gets harder every year. I drink plenty of water. I squeeze lemon into my water and keep my big cup with ice with me at all times.

For me, I don't eat anything proccessed. I make everything at home. NO sugar. It takes some getting used to, but it's doable.

I am in the same predicament as you. On top of it, I exercise 4 times per week for about 1-2 hours. My biggest issue is drinking the water. Right now I buy water flavors at Walmart. They help some but I can never get to 64oz. Hopefully someone have any ideas? Good luck.

Hi Everyone,

I am having a challenge on losing 30 pounds. I found the older you get the harder it is to lose weight. I find that I am not drinking much water in a day. My job has me sitting at my desk all day. I need help on finding the correct foods to eat.
