60 + looking for buddies

Would like to find friends with 50 or more pounds to loose in this age group for support and motivation mainly because the older we get the harder it is to loose and i need help to stay on track


  • Me too, so I've sent you a message. Hopefuly we can motivate each other a little in what isn't going to be an easy task! I made my first entry yesterday and it's appalling!

    Hi I'm 62 and just popped my head in to say, you can do it. Don't make age an excuse, it may just take a little longer.

    I have been maintaining for a few years now so don't qualify for your group, but am happy to cheer you on your way.

    If you can do some kind of resistance work, it will help you retain the muscle you have, we lose it a bit faster when we are older. Also, make sure you get enough protein.

    Cheers, h.

    Hi everyone. I am 68, lost 20 lbs a year ago for daughter's wedding. Somehow the last year has zoomed by and I stood on the scales, now the heaviest I have every been so 28lbs back on. I have just started going to the gym again so delighted to join this group; lets all support and encourage each other. I have started doing spin classes which I love and did before. I have also started body pump which uses weights. everyone else has big weights, I am lifting about 4 kg. I thought take it easy and slowly build up. This is supposed to be good and balances the spin which is cardio. I have also just done 1 legs bums and tums which found muscles I never knew I had until they ached. After 1 week of exercise I have not lost 1lb but am beginning to feel better

    I am 66 and have lost from370 to 225 with God's help over the last 3 years. I still have weight to lose and need a lot of support. It is getting harder and harder. I have a bad back and fibromyalgia so it is hard to exercise. I also have a lot of droopy skin which is a little discouraging after so much hard work. However truth be told I still have weight to lose and would like support to do this. I promise not to be a whiner. I just was clarifying my situation. Love to have response.
