my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off.

i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x.

we are both still loosing weight until we reach our goal

Hi and welcome to the team. I think you are smart to focus on the 4 rather than the forty. Focusing on the end goal can make the challenge seem overwhelming. Take things one small step at a time and before you know it you will have all the small changes needed in line for success. emoticon

Welcome to the team. awesome you have decide to start on the journey that will help you stay motivated. I am learning to take this time around not as a diet but as a way of life. I am 60 years young this year with a lot of pain in my legs and back. I also can not do a lot of the exercise. So I try to walk and stretch. With this program you are going to learn how to stay motivated and how to live a healthy lifestyle.So take your time and explore this site. emoticon emoticon

I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me

Hi and welcome to the team emoticon Here's my best advice: 1) Use your nutrition tracker faithfully, every single day and for every single meal. It will keep you honest and accountable for your choices of food and the amounts you eat; 2) Find a few exercises/activities you actually enjoy doing and then do them 3-4X a week. If you enjoy the activity you will stick with it: 3) Stay active with your Spark Team(s). That is where you will get your encouragement, support, and motivation along the way; and, 4) try to have fun with this! If you make this your friend, you will hang in there and emoticon until you reach your destination emoticon

One more thought: don't worry about how fast or slow you lose the weight. This is one area where the old cliche "slow and steady wins the race" really does apply. We are learning to develop a new relationship with food and re-educate ourselves regarding how to make healthy choices and eat the correct portions emoticon This process takes time but in the end, it is well worth the investment made.

Looking forward to sharing info and experiences with you along the way!

I'm exhausted just thinking of new ways to try to lose 4 lbs, let alone the 40 I really need to lose! How many times can I really start over again?! I just learned of this site and I'm hoping the team will help give me the encouragement and motivation that I need, but as you all know, it's the first step that's the hardest. It's going to be a slow start, but I'll be checking in for support often. Here I go again!! emoticon
