Update on Losing weight After 50

Saturday, June 25, 2011

It has been six months since I joined Spark People. I am still not smoking and I have lost close to 30 pounds. I still have 20 something pounds that I would like to lose, however the weight loss has slowed down to two or three pounds a month. Sometimes it gets a little frustrating, but I don't look overweight now or so my husband says. (He tends to be very blunt) So I guess slow is okay. I could just stay right where I am now and be alright, but I like a challenge so I am determined to go the distance. Spark People has been a huge help in changing my habits and the way I live. I like seeing where I fall on the fitness leader boards every week. The competition makes me exercise more than I would on my own. I do 120 minutes of exercise at least 5 days a week and at least 60 minutes when I get busy with other things.

    I think you are doing great! I don't think there's a thing wrong with losing 2-3 pounds a month; I believe you are more likely to keep it off by losing that way. Giving you a chance to adjust to the new lifestyle. Goal isn't the end of the journey; it's the beginning of a new one. Congratulations on your consistent progress!! WTG!

    I like how you keep yourself going even when the weight loss has slowed down. You stay focused on your goal. You have inspired me to continue to stay focused even when I don't see any progress. Thanks!
