Somehow I stopped using Spark, but I am back now and doing a low carb diet. It's been a rough year, tore my rotator cuff and found out my hips are really bad so I need to think of ways to lose weight that don't involve doing most exercise.

I'm also a new returnee! Great comments here: the wise and common-sense ACCOUNTABILITY KEYS and Debra's comment ("can't get younger but can get healthier.").

I've been doing Weight Watchers online but I just cancelled today. I lost about 16 lbs or so and it did a great job of getting me back into the zone of conscious eating, which I think is a huge key. But I had slipped into no longer counting points (but still eating wisely) and simply using their weight tracker. I can do that here and more!

(M avatar is my affirmative me! :-)

ACCOUNTABILITY IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS!
Lap band a quick fix will fail if proper education, planning and support for the future do not exist: ex. Carnie Wilson, a friend of mine who ended up gaining it back plus more.
Fad diets work but for how long! Can you really survive on them the rest of your life and what cost!
The best diet I read is the one that fits into your life style.
Read all you can. Be accountable to you. Track intake honestly.
Build up to exercise. Start off slowly and work up.
Develop habits that keep hands busy and free from food.
Make your goals reasonable and attainable. Do not set yourself up to fail. Reward yourself along the way with some of your favorite things.
By the end of the journey you will have developed a lifetime of eating habits that keep you thin.
I hope to see you here often. Welcome!!!!
I am also 61- and like a fine wine I have improved with age.

I think it was Einstein who said, " if you continue doing things the way you always have, then you will continue to get the same results."

No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.-Beverly Sills

They may become harder to achieve, but your dreams can't stop because you've hit a certain age.-Dara Torres

Hi all I am back and ready to commit to weight loss to get healthier. I turned 60 last month and decided I can't get younger but I can get healthier.
