I am 69 now, started MfP just before my 68th birthday. I am 5ft tall, hovered between 10 1/2 and 11 stone for years, although I always did a lot of exercise. After logging calories and exercise, I steadily lost 2-3 pounds per week and weighed 8 3/4 stones after 5 months. I was particular pleased to drop 2 bra cup sizes. I wasn’t too happy about my face looking a bit gaunt, which was rather ageing. What seemed to help in weight loss was giving up dairy produce, which I did for digestive reasons - no acid reflux now. My weight now hovers at 9 stone and my face has lost the gaunt look. After over a year of strict calorie logging, I have found it a bit of a bind, particularly on days I eat out or go away on holiday. I have found that when I return to logging consistently my weight starts to fall quickly, which is encouraging. I think the regular exercise is crucial, helps the metabolism. I am now aiming to get to 8 stone, ideal for my height.

Morning everyone. Tomorrow is my weigh in at WW. Yesterday I was at 159.6, below my goal weigh, today I am at 160.9, above again, sigh. Getting into the 50's is taking me forever. However, I am still at it.
I added tai chi and dug out my old Leslie Stallone walk a mile CD's, I forgot how much I like them. I find if I do the same exercise all the time my body becomes completely used to it and my weight loss stalls so am switching it up and hope to make my ole body wonder what the heck is going on.
9 more working days until I retire so everyone is having little parties for me before the big retirement party in Sept and none of the treats are on the healthy end at all. My boss though said she will make sure there are healthy options at my big party.
My exercise routine for this week was, Monday, gym doing keep the pace on the treadmill and then 90 minutes of strength training, I love lifting weights, Tuesday, tai chi and yogo in the morning and then 17 mile bike ride, Wednesday just work but 12,000 some steps, Thursday gym day, Friday, walking with Leslie. Next week, same routine different days
My little dog loves doing yoga with me and has the down dog perfected Have a great day all.
