Hi, It's never too late to change. I am 75 and just starting on my new phase of life, whatever that is; haven't figured it out yet but losing 60 pounds is a big part of it. Just keep a positive outlook and you will see it happen.
Hi Di, there is no easy answer I'm afraid, you just have to be strong and remember to track everything you eat. Don't make the mistake of dropping straight back down to your calorie range, take 3-4 days to get back there, your body will adjust better that way. There is nothing wrong with a short lapse it's what you do afterwards that counts. Make sure to keep the water intake and fibre up and the sugar down, aim for smaller pieces of cake etc and try not to get too disheartened by falling off track. You've done it before so you know you can do it again. I think most of me has sorted itself out now, just my wrist is still playing up but then I have weak wrists anyway, the dogs can dislocate them just by pulling to hard on the lead, they go in and out of joint at will. I'm just hoping I haven't cracked a bone in the wrist but if it doesn't stop aching soon I will be off to the drop in treatment centre for advice. 2643 days ago
