Weighing" in at 4''10"----And will be 50 in less than a week!! You can do this.....just take things slow and shoot for small attainable goals. As you reach a small goal - set another. Before you know it you are making progress!!!

Welcome Gwen!
I am also 5'2" and we "short" people know how every stinking pound counts. I had 40 pounds to lose and I only have 10 more to go! If I can do it, so can you. I am in my mid-50's.
Set smaller goals (don't focus on the 70 pounds); focus on 10 pounds by the end of March or whatever you feel is reasonalbe.
Use the nutrition and fitness trackers. They are the best tools!
Welcome again,
Cindy


Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your srength and all your might. Love your neighbor as yourself.

Welcome aboard Gwen............

I have about the same amount to lose and so if I can help you let me know.....
What area are you in? If you can generalize, other Sparkers may be able
to support you walking or whatever.....

I am on a gluten free plan right now from a nutritionist and it is working for me...
