Hi Nanny, I am 63 - in fact, I will be 64 on the 27th of this month and, yes, you can lose weight at this age! What I have discovered is that it is a slower process then it was when I was 30, but then again, nothing is the same as when I was 30
One thing that works for me is to cut down on the starchy carbohydrates I eat. I was a big, big bread, rice, potato, pasta eater. I decided to get serious and start checking my % of carbs, fats, and proteins on the Nutrition Tracker page every day and make sure they were in line, or very close to, the Spark recommendations. When I started doing that, I started to lose weight. I only lose 1/2-1 lb. at a time and it can be 2-3 weeks in between losses but, so far, I'm down 13+ lbs. So, hang in there and take a look at those daily reports to see if you are getting a good balance of nutrients.
P.S. You might want to set up a Spark Page so your teammates and friends can send you encouraging messages and virtual Goodies too! Those kinds of things really motivate!
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He wlll make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
