Hi Mary, and welcome to our team. We try to lose by learning one new thing at a time and doing it until it is a habit. Drinking water, eating some fruit and veggies each day and moving if only for a couple of minutes at a time. If you just walk in place during some adverts, 3 or 4 times a day it all helps. Are you able to do any exercise or do you need to do chair exercises, they are here on Spark as well. If you need any help, please ask.
Come and join in on the Chat room thread and the One day at a time thread

Hi my name is Mary I live in Florida. I need hope I have faith in God but not myself. I am trying once again because I am sick and tired of being depressed and not capable of living any type of active life. I need some encouragement that my attempt in this is not just an impossible dream. I am 59 have diabetes and other obstacles that stand in my way. I have so much weight to lose. It is so hard to be motivated and not depressed or humiliated because of my weight. If anyone can just let me know if they have lost weight at my age and with so much weight to lose please send me a reply of encouragement. I feel it is kind of hopeless I guess. Thanks for letting me vent.
