I canít seem to get focused and my weight keeps creeping up. Now I need to lose 12 pounds. I am in my early seventies. The past seven years have been full with knee replacement and a spinal fusion which occurred after a fall that broke my collar bone.

Now that I am six months passed the fusion I am wanting to change my life.

Stacy- this summer those in the south will have heat and humidity, while Maine will have perfect weather for hiking.

Linda- did your daughter measure everything?

I'm here, and I wish you well. I know it can be quite difficult to lose and keep off weight, especially in the winter. Fortunately for me, I do not have a weight problem, but I know from my daughter's experiences over the years that this is a very difficult fight. When I first started Sparkpeople, I wanted to lose around 10 pounds or so, and tracking my food intake really worked for me. My daughter has lost more than 60 pounds since June, and I know she is very careful with her food intake plus she works out regularly. As you did, she has been very systematic with her efforts. A few months ago, she joined Weight Watchers. While she doesn't follow all of their advice, she really enjoys being with others who are trying to lose and/or maintain weight. emoticon

Is anybody out there? I'm looking for some support and camaraderie and willing to give too! My weight crept (leapt?) up through the winter. With spring upon us (though I'm in Maine where it's still cold and gray - ugh!) I've been working HARD to trim down in a healthy way. Weight loss at 50 was hard, even harder at 55, 60 is a whole new ballgame!!!
