Welcome. I know what you mean about it being harder to lose the weight when we're older. Spark People has a lot to offer in the way of encouragement and help.
The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.--Socrates ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ *~*~*~*~*~*~ The only person you need to be better than is the person you were yesterday.
You've come to the right place. There are so many things that you can do, and it all edifies your body!!! Don't be shy, just jump right in and kick up the water and get yourself wet. I'll even welcome a bit of a back wash from you!!!
I have faith in you. While you're working with SP and the rest of us, it becomes as we're working it together for a greater common goal!!!

I retired in 2005 from teaching school and lost 20 pounds in the first 6 months. After I got over the initial giddiness of planning my own time, I started gaining weight and am now up 43 pounds. It is much harder to lose at the age of 69 than it was at younger ages. I know I need support and so thought I would try Spark People.
