    I am in my 60's. You are doing great to have lost 20 pounds in 2 months. I am losing about 5 pounds a month. I would like to be losing faster but I also know that what I am doing is working for me. I have found that doing Youtube videos helps me to workout on a regular basis. I was going to the gym pre- Covid, but truthfully I was in a rut and not pushing myself to hard. Now I work hard to keep up with the videos. I do Leslie Sansone, Team Body Project, Paul Eugine, Silver Sneakers ane I recently found Renew Active workout videos. I am stronger and in better physical shape than I have been in years even thought I still have 30-40 pounds left to lose. Good luck!

    Welcome! I'm 65, and lost from obese to healthy weight here a few years back, now maintaining. Twenty pounds in two months is *really fast* loss, great if lots to lose in total. There are some good groups/threads here for meeting people/women more in our age group. These are a couple I like (but there are more):
