    My biggest observations in changes to my body at age 69 (started intermittent fasting at age 67) were, as follows: 64 lbs lighter now with too many stretch marks and loose skin on belly, however, much less back pain (almost zero) especially when standing in-place or running. I am able to perform more pull-ups. I can touch my toes and I can actually see my feet again, Hah!!!. My blood pressure is much better. Women smile at me??? OMG, I stopped breaking my office chairs' hydraulic chambers, which was annoying and costly. Never even thought it was because I was way overweight. I like your post, even though it's a few years old. (smile)

    Your shoes may no longer fit.
    Don't be too quick to resize your wedding bands, most jewelers won't do it more than twice.
    Find and make friends with your local consignment shop, don't splurge too much on clothes until you reach (and have stayed for a while at) goal.
    Some of your friends and family members will not be supportive.
    It's not a linear process (especially for us girls)! Some days/weeks you will not lose anything and that's okay. Stick to your plan.
