emoticon Malia! It's never too late to get healthy and strong! I agree with Catherine on eating healthy AND exercise. Just be sure to set small goals for yourself so you don't get overwhelmed....you're more likely to develop healthy habits that way.

I am in your age group and I am the fittest and healthiest I have ever been due to a wake up call about 10 years ago. And no, it did not take me 10 years to do it. The best advice: use both diet AND exercise. And it is NEVER too late to start exercising just start slow.

You need them both to be healthy. And for exercise you need to do cardio (walking and such) as well as strength training to develop and maintain strength as well as balance. Avoid falls! Stretching is also great.

The Fitness and Nutrition Trackers are great for this. The latter will often surprise you: what you thought was a healthy recipe is actually way too full of fat, sodium, ... There are also lots of exercise resources available too.

Cheers,
Catherine

Hi.
New to this sort of thing, but am hoping to get to a sane place with weight loss. At my age, (almost 60) it is pretty obvious that I still have never made it to a healthy weight, and stayed there longer than a year. The lowest I ever got was done wrong, and probably due more to stress.
Now it will become a number one health issue at this point of my life. The "issues" are starting to raise their ugly heads and I don't want to have my life become sorting through pill bottles.
I think it is time to ask for help!
thank you Malia
