emoticon You can do this. Track what you eat on the tracker and stay on the low end of what Spark tells you, and move. I started walking 10 minutes out and 10 min back, I'm up to an hour ( 3 miles) + I go to Curves 3-4 days a week. I started the last week in January and I'm down 12 lb. You can be down 11 lb too by June. We're here to support you. Don't forget to drink water too.

emoticon on facing your challenge to become more active with your exercise. Stick with the small steady workouts at least 3 times this week. Then next week try adding in one more day with even 10 minutes of aerobics. Slow and steady with your food, water, and exercise habits will make them become part of your lifestyle and not a quick fix. Dig out that food scale, measuring cups, and start stocking 2 qt. size bottles of water in the fridge. One you've sipped one to completion you'll have the 2nd ready and waiting.

You can get to your goal. If you have health challenges research and read on the site its full of ways to help you reach your goals and stay safe and healthy at the same time.
-Good luck!

Welcome, Susan. I will be 62 in July and also met my late husband via a personal in 2006 (he was a widower, I was divorced). Weight loss at our age isn't as easy as when young(er), but it can be done. I started on January 8 and as of this morning am down 17.5 pounds. Most of the time I stick to between 1400 to 1500 calories (though the first few weeks I did up to 1700 calories), and I exercise at least 5 days a week and usually 6 (my exercise consists of walking or doing aerobics with the Walk Away The Pounds DVDs). If you are careful with your calories and dedicated to exercising, you can lose 11 pounds by June 11. That's about a pound a week, maybe a bit more. That's about my rate of loss.

Good luck!!

Where do I start? My name is Susan; I am a 62yo woman who loves life and food! I am married to the love of my life whom I found online in 2001! I was a single parent for almost 20 years with my beautiful daughter, Melissa (she is married to Josh and has 5 furbabies). I gained 60 lbs with my pregnancy some 29 years ago and am still carrying 50 lbs of that weight!

I have tried many different diets over the years, but have now decided to make a lifestyle change! My current weight is 210.2 (fresh off the scales this morning) and I would like to set my mini-goal to be in ONEDERLAND (199) by the time I travel to Missouri for my niece's wedding on 11 June.

I am not much of an exerciser but realize that I must make this a priority so .... this morning I did 20 min of yoga and 10 min of aerobics. It's a start!

God never ignores knee-mail!
