You can do this!! It probably won't come off as quickly as after you had surgery....or if you were 15 years younger. But it WILL come off!!
Just remember - Baby steps will get you to the same place as giant leaps as long as you are going in the right direction!!!
I lost 60 pounds when I was 48 and two years later I am struggling with gaining some of that back - but I know I can re-lose it - perhaps just not as quickly as last time.
NEVER EVER GIVE UP!!

Behold the turtle, he only makes progress when he sticks his neck out.

Baby Steps will get you to the same place as giant leaps as long as you are going in the right direction!!

Like Cindy said, be sure to use your fitness & nutrition tracker. Your new best friends will be water & the Alabama Team, of course. By tracking your food & exercise, it will make you more aware of what you are putting into your body & what you are burning. You will have days when you go over your calorie count & days when you don't even meet it. Just hang in there. Don't give up. Remember, each day is a new day. If you fail today, tomorrow is new. Hang in there & you can do this.

Best of luck to you on your journey. God bless.

U r doing, girl!

Winston Churchill commanded his troops to "SINK the Bismarck", and they did, so for Christmas we will sink the bismarck by not over-indulging. Yes I will indulge but with Gods help, "I WILL NOT OVER-INDULGE"! SETASIDE1@YAHOO.COM

Welcome!

You can do it. Just do it one baby step at a time.

I have lost 75 lbs since September so you can do this. It is a mindset.
I am on a plan that a nutritionist put me on, gluten free. Who knew I
had a sensitivity to the stuff.

If you always do what you've always done,
You'll always be who you've always been!!!!!!

is the quiet voice at the
end of the day saying "I
will try again tomorrow!"

I really want to lose weight but just don't think its possible over 50. I need to lose 100 pounds. I had gastric bypass over 10 years ago and it worked for me then because I would certainly be dead if I didn't have it. I lost a lot of weight but now I have gained a lot of weight back now and know I must do this on my own without any surgeries. I lost it so fast back then and know now because of my age it will come off so slow and that is so hard for be to be motivated by. I will try and hope and pray I wont give up because I am so unhealthy!!!! The picture I posted on my sparkle page is of course of healthier times! I hope it motivates me!
