I am 51 and considered obese for the first time in my life. It's very scary because I am suffering from other illnesses due to the extreme weight gain. I have tried every "diet" out there and nothing has worked although each has cost me a lot of money. So, I am going to try the old fashioned way. Cut back on the amount of food I eat and add exercise. No pills, no "special diet foods". Just eat less, cook healthier, and walk 2 miles at least 3 times a week for now.

I am 51 and considered obese for the first time in my life. It's very scary because I am suffering from other illnesses due to the extreme weight gain. I have tried every "diet" out there and nothing has worked although each has cost me a lot of money. So, I am going to try the old fashioned way. Cut back on the amount of food I eat and add exercise. No pills, no "special diet foods". Just eat less, cook healthier, and walk 2 miles at least 3 times a week for now. I have gastroparesis, which means my stomach doesn't empty,so there are a number of healthy foods I cannot eat because of this disease. This makes it harder to lose weight and get the healthy nutrients I need because I cannot have things like broccoli, cabbage, etc.. I have to have mostly liquids and softer foods. Still, I have a lot of weight to lose and I still have to make sure I am getting healthy food. I am committed to this. The weight loss is harder because of my stomach emptying problem and the meal planning is also a struggle because my whole way of eating has to change. I want to live a long life and not have other health issues because of my weight and gastroparesis.

Hi and welcome. So glad you are here to make a change! Get familiar with everything and join some teams. Teams are good for motivation, support and accountability. If you type your interests/hobbies in the team search bar you might find a team you like. You could also try the first number of your age followed by a 0 and something. Example "30 something". Good luck on your journey
