my sister lost 105 pounds at age 63 by walking 15000 steps a day.
i lost 44 pounds by giving up grain products and sugary products at age 60.
i use a salad plate as a dinner plate; i eat with a childs fork. takes your brain 20 minutes to tell your stomach your full. it works.

and to the team. Glad you joined us. Best wishes on your journey to a healthier lifestyle with your pal beside you.
Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner. Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

and to the team.When I can't get outside exercise, I set the timer on my stove for 15 minutes and walk as fast as I can. I try to do it twice a day. The route doesn't matter. Your body doesn't know where you're walking. Keep moving as much as you can. Good luck. Wliberty

Hi. Walking is great exercise. As you'll learn on this site 15 minutes at a time is plenty. Maybe even do it twice a day when possible. You're in great hands with Indygirl. Good luck!

I'm glad you're doing something about the proble.The 20 lb.gain in a few days in a hospital was I'm sure caused by IV fluids.I'm an old retired nurse with lots of hospital experience. and I'm sure you will too.Shirley721

Good luck and try to keep from getting discouraged. Life does make sense in the end.

Hi everyone I don't know where to begin except I need help. A year ago I had a total knee replacement with complications of not healing properly. Thru various Drs. they concluded it was a pinched nerve in my back. So 16 days ago I had back surgery. So far the leg is still shaking.( I know give it time). Meanwhile I gained 20# from the knee surgery and another 20# overnight in the hospital. How can that happen?
I need to get my eating habit under control. At least that will help till I can excercise more than walking 15 min at a time. Help and give me some suggestions. I am replying to indygirl blog as she has overcome a lot.
Thanks Spark People
