OK this is my first day too. Really glad that I stumbled onto this site just an hour or so ago. I'm male, 65, weigh 175, at 5'9", and trying to head off diabetes type 2. Already have the hypertension and take blood pressure meds. Have lost about 20 pounds through other means, but stuck at the 170 to 176 pound range for many months now. I want to get down to 160. Would appreciate hearing from anyone regarding support, tips, advice, or just relating.
