You'll be so glad you found SP! There are lots of resources here and friendly people who will support your lifestyle changes. It is harder I think, as you get older, to keep the weight stable. And exercise gets harder - or is that just me!? Anyway, have fun and I wish you well.

emoticon and emoticon to both of you. Unfortunately, as we approach menopause our metabolism slows down and the weight piles on for many of us. I fully understand you weight around the middle and the problems it makes with finding suitable clothing. I though it was impossible for me to lose weight but, after joining SP and beginning to weigh, measure, and record what I was eating, I found my problem was underestimating portion sizes and therefore eating too much. Using the nutrition tracker should help you analyze what you are doing and see where small changes are needed. emoticon

my sister lost 105 pounds walking 15000 steps a day at age 63.

i lost 44 pounds by giving up grain and sugar products at age 60.

i use a salad plate as a dinner plate.

i use a childs for and spoon so i eat slower. it takes your brain 20 minutes to tell your stomach your full.

Hi and welcome.
Like you I am carrying 2 stone too much!
I watch what I eat too. Unfortunately I watch most of what I eat as it passes on the fork/spoon from the plate to the mouth. Rather think I have it a wee bit wrong. I need to be more careful of what I put on the plate first.
What I like about tracking on this site when I am being a bit more serious about weight control is that I CAN still eat the things I like just smaller portions and not just rabbit food as we felt we must when we all tried this game long time ago.

Good luck with your weight loss goal

Hi, I just stumbled on this site today and was amazed at all the free content. I have been struggling with weight most of my adulthood, but up until about two years ago it was about 5 or 10 pounds. Now I find myself 30 pounds overweight and in spite of trying to watch what I eat, it just keeps going up. I'm really feeling a bit helpless at this point and incredibly discouraged. I feel fat and ugly and I hate passing by a mirror. At this point in my life I don't want to look like a supermodel. I just want to be healthy and be able to watch my granddaughter grow up. My weight tends to settle right around the middle and finding clothing for my body shape right now is very hard.
