well you've come to the right place. you've joined a great team who are here to help you in your health journey.
everyones chemistry is different. people who can eat anything and not gain weight have no concept of what we go through. so try this,
first throw out all the junk food in your house.
then Use the food tracker. input everything that goes into your mouth. stay within your calorie range. watch portion size, keep healthy snacks on hand. apple, celery, etc. exercise. you must burn more calories than you eat.
exercising is key. I hope this helps.

i joined since my hubby and I both turn 59 in mid-April and we are also both diabetic so we need to make major changes in our eating and lifestyle. Since my hubby had the femoral artery in his right leg cleared of a major blockage and he has the same problem in his left leg that will be done I think in April. Cutting back on our sodium intake was our first major step and also going with more food that are less processed and refined. However I still need to learn new cooking habits

I'm here because we have to stop eating for our health. Monday is the date set to have all salt, sugar, saturated and trans fat out of our home. I'm in the process of collecting healthy recipes that taste good, making menus and grocery lists. I'm hoping to learn from all of you as well as contribute as I learn to eat and cook healthy for me and my husband.
