I'm close to your range and share your goals, Katie. 53 and I just joined our local senior center and signed up for a strength training class. Will at least keep me honest for a few weeks, and maybe I'll find workout partners?

Yay, all of us!

I'm 66 and just getting started. My current weight is 208.5. My goal is to get down to 180 (or more). I just can't quit on this. I need a support structure. My exercise of choice is Zumba. I'm starting over with that as well. I took too many months off for weak excuses.

I’m eager to lose my weight while I’m still in my 50s - one year to go before I’m in my 60s. 😁

Nothing worth doing is ever easy. It's more important than ever to get moving and stay moving. I actually found a gym I enjoy going to, which helps with weight loss but also overall fitness and strength. The nutrition angle is harder for me, but I have learned that every meal is another chance for me to make good choices. The good choices add up.

While it is, indeed, harder to lose after 50... I can tell you it won't be any easier after 60 either. Remember that "hard" does not equal "impossible". And let's be realistic here-- by now, we've faced and done a lot of hard things in our lives. We can do this, too! I lost the weight in my 50's, hypothyroid, in menopause.

I would venture to guess that practically everyone struggles when they are older!
