    Suggestions: Use a digital scale to weigh/measure your food and learn how to log accurately.
    With a huge goal of 100 pounds, you'll be wise to set intermediate goals all along the way and reward yourself appropriately (not with food). New outfit, massage, etc.

    Good luck!

    It may seem impossible at first, but break it up into little chunks. Commit to losing 5# at a time so you can celebrate your progress. I'm half way to my goal after two years and I'm your age... it's a process, but it's doable. Anyone can feel free to add me.

    I've lost a little over 50, still want to lose 80-100 more. I'm a stress eater, love food, and eat huge portions! I have been on a roller coaster weight loss life most of my life, so at 52, that's enough. My health is too important. I'd love to have and give as much support as I can! I am a teacher, so summers are challenging with no set schedule. I am focusing on getting in activity 3-4 times a week (water aerobics), meal planning, and healthy snacks. And, of course, one day at a time! Friends welcome please!

    Hi, everyone! I am also in the same boat. But I have started again today!!!! Writing everything down. Which is easy with this App. By the way dinadeal2013, we are most definitely in the same boat, with one exception I am 10 years older. But I want to get this weight off so I can help my husband better, he is not in the best of shape, heartwise. So what do you say everyone, we start today?!!!! :)

    I have more than 100 to lose!!! Feel free to add me too. I'm pretty new to all of this too, but am down 15 pounds so far. I WILL NOT give up. Zero excuses. I want to be able to live my life, not merely exist. I want to outlive my children. I'm tired of hiding.

    I'm 48, and I've lost 75 of the 95 pounds I want to lose. My advice won't work for everyone, but I'm willing to share my tips. I have a somewhat biting sense of humor sometimes, and a rather pragmatic point of view.

    Interim rewards are a *huge* help. I acknowledged every 5 pound loss.
    A sense of humor.
    For me, the "fall off the wagon" approach doesn't work. Most social and celebratory occasions involve food, and frequently involve indulgent food.

    Proceed with caution with respect to any plan which sets an absolute "always" "never" "only" or suggests a "trick".

    Knowledge is power.
    Trends, not days.
    Exceeding the calorie recommendation on any given day does not have to permanently derail you.
    Drink enough water.
    Weigh yourself according to your needs. I weigh myself daily; I'm at peace (mostly) with the fluctuations. Some people weigh themselves weekly. There is no "right" answer.
    There will be fluctuations, probably even with weekly weigh-ins.
    The occasional apparent gain is not usually something to worry about.
    This can be done without taking extreme measures.

    I have about 80 - 100 to go yet, but have lost 57. Here is some basic advice.

    -Don't look at it as a 100 lbs, break it into more manageable chunks like 10 - 20 and reward yourself when you reach each goal. It's better if it is not a food reward.
    - Allow yourself to have a cheat day or meal once in awhile. It gives you something to look forward to but you have to make sure it is one and back on the wagon.
    - If you are really hungry or craving something start with a full glass of water. Many times that will take the craving away. If you still really want it after the water, have a small portion and wait an hour.
    - If you do fall off the wagon and gain, or just don't lose weight one week, DON'T beat yourself up. You are human, you can't be perfect all the time.
    - Give it time, it's not going to fall off nearly as fast as you want it to. Just keep at it and you will get there.

    Believe me, I still have to remind myself of these things every day.

    You can also add me as a friend if you like. Good luck, you can do it!!!!!

    I am with you on motivation....I have to loose at least 100 pounds. I have a bad ankle as it was cut off and put back on when I was younger (i was hit by a drunk driver). Therefor exercise is almost impossible. I just started yesterday and so far so good. So glad I found this sight. It is so nice to see I am not alone...
