Hi there I am 69 years young. Lost 50 pounds tracking my food, measuring my food. You must be very aware to measure your potions. Most people eat too many big meals, and they all add up. The tracker is absolutely fabulous. Portion control has got me to where I am.I was on medications. NowNO Medications fot Blood pressure. Diabetes and cholesterol and now I am no longer obese, just over weight.
Pat in Maine. I FEEL Healthier every day with my Spark Tracker. I will do it slowly I like it that way. Toodle-ooo! and Toodle- Pip! JUST DO IT!

Welcome. Sounds like you've already thought about your plan to reach your goals. Has your doctor held out any hope of improving the circulation in your leg? There are many seated exercise videos on this site and on YouTube. Search "Chair Exercise." Good luck.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
I have been battling my weight since my first child 22 years ago...I feel like an addict typing on here confessing LOL but honest I do take it serious I have High Blood Pressure at 43 and have had for 4 years now and bad circulation in one leg. I am very active with my two children I have at home, but am limited to things such as its difficult to put on my shoes and certain vehicles aren't comfortable and even plane rides. I need to do this for ME..I just need to stay close to tracking and start small with exercising. With the support I know I can do it!! I lost 120 about 7 years ago and after my dad passed away I gained it all back! Its time to reclaim me again!! lets do this!!
