Count me in. I am ready to get focused and loose this weight. I’m 53 years old. Started running when I turned 40 but had major injury in 2012 and never fully recovered. Would love to get back to running but for right now just focusing on some form of exercise every day. So glad I found this thread. I need the support.

“Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in day out.” Robert CollierA pound a week sounds reasonable ... especially for those of us over 50! Reporting in on Wednesdays since I consider that my official WI.
I'll turn 60 this year and really want to get into Onederland and make it stick this decade!

This week's successes: Pretty awful week. For some reason, I went totally off the rails. I ate sugar like it was going to be erased from the face of the earth. I ate two servings of soup at our weekly small group and had dessert. I thought I had these meetings under control, but clearly not! I ate the rest of the fun-size M&Ms instead of getting rid of them by sending them to work or throwing them away. I’m thankful that I didn’t gain even more than I did. I think going to the gym, riding my bike, and walking helped to keep the gain from being even worse. I need to figure out why I did that. I’m not beating myself up about it, but I really want to figure out why my eating was so out of control this week.
This week's challenges: Limit sugar intake, add more veggies to my daily diet.
