emoticon You can do this. Trust yourself start out slow and make a few changes at a time. Don't try to change everything at once it becomes overwhelming. Use the food tracker it's a wonderful tool to help you. And we are here for support.

Welcome and please stop looking at yourself and thinking "disgusting." We wouldn't talk to a friend that way and we need to be a friend to ourselves.
When I was 61 1/2 I decided to change my life for good. no more dieting! The years of yo yo dieting had to be over. I committed to eating healthy most of the time, tracking my food, and moving. Set reasonable calorie goal that I could stick with. Over the last 2 1/2 years I've gotten to the "normal" BMI and maintained the loss for over a year.
You can do this. Think about setting reasonable goals and have some short, mid and long-term goals. Please don't think of this as a diet, rather a new way of eating that you can stick with for life.

Welcome. You might try making up a list of easy to do exercises and every time you think of sweets do the next one on the list until the craving goes away. Eventually exercise will be your go to for when you're feeling down. Glad you joined us.

Hi,
I will be turning 60 this year and this is the first time I look at myself and think I am looking old on my face, with my belly fat...disgusting! I have the potential to become diabetic, gestational diabetic with both pregnancies, so I am looking to bring my weight down a bit and hopefully I can. I am bad at follow through, especially when I feel down about anything. My go to feeling down remedy is sweets. I am hoping that I will be able to keep on my meal plans better as I am selecting foods I like and will really eat. I have been looking for such a plan for more years than I can remember. First meal, first day....good so far!
