    Still on target! At 2lb/week, my excel chart predicts a Dec 5 finish (and 147 by my birthday and 126 by Dec 19th); I know it is highly unlikely that I will continue to lose 2 lbs per week, and I'm already really having to kick up the exercise to keep this rate up, but it's a sweet dream and very motivational, so no officious Debbie Downers please.

    @chublet25 Hey Pat, we are close in age. I will be turning 63 the first week of October. I tried going WFPB, unfortunately my system doesn't tolerate beans, lentils, or soy products. It was practically impossible to get sufficient protein, and my chronic anemia reared its ugly head, even with supplements. I have drastically cut my meat intake, just enough to get my protein and keep my anemia under control.

    I started on MFP 2 years ago then had episodes of hypertensive crisis that landed me in the ER a few times. Cardiologist said no exercise and nothing that causes stress. I fell off the planet and just getting myself back into life.

    Plain ole CICO for me, just got the okay to start walking and light resistance exercise as long as I don't have to hold my breath to do it. I am looking forward to cooler weather so I can start walking outside instead of inside. Broke out my resistance bands so I can try and build some muscle under the flab.

    One thing I did find last time that helped me was joining the Ultimate Accountability Challenge. It is a very friendly and supportive group. Maybe you could check it out and jump in on the September challenge?

    Any way you can get yourself motivated is a plus. I will try to check in and cheer you on. HUGS!

    Bummer about the anemia; I try to get my protein from a lot of different sources: chia seeds, nut butters, and many vegetables are surprisingly high in protein but of course I eat tempeh and other soy products, am extremely fond of chickpeas. I don't know what I'd do if I had an allergy such as yours. Because I absolutely will not eat animals or animal products. I guess I'm lucky! Other than a broken back a few years ago, and cancer (offending body parts removed) I'm perfectly healthy and have no excuses.

    Thanks for the cheering! The CICO works for me too, but I can increase my CO. I can't reduce my CI - I'm already eating only 1200 calories per day.

    I have joined the challenge you recommended! I see it's really a group. I don't know if I have to get accepted or not, but I'll try to post tonight once I've got everything logged and my exercise done. Jogging and a long walk are on my "menu" for the day. Also, I still work for a living, so I have to work that in somewhere!

    Thanks again. Hope to see you in the Ultimate Accountability Challenge. I track everything and exercise almost every single day.

    I have left the group already, after posting just 2 days. I already keep track of everything and I am already very motivated to stay on target. Besides, I'm already in 6 challenges and 4 other groups. One of them requires daily posting. But whatever works for everybody is what they should do!

    If you don’t mind, I’ll add my posts here too. I’m 66, and in June of this year reached my highest weight ever of 193.8 pounds. I started using MFP to log my food and weight on 6/30/21. I have been walking for my exercise activity right now. I do have a some equipment such as a stationary bike, rower and weights that I need to start using. I’m basically following a 1600 cal diet, usually log 1300 -1500 per day, concentrating on macros which has worked well for me in the past. My goal is between 115 - 120, no set time to reach it. Current weight is 170.4, and I’m 5’3”.

    Not sure why somebody's disagreed with your post. I am happy to have somebody else in the group! Your weight loss is going really well; congratulations! Welcome!

    I have a treadmill (use it only in the winter) and a cheap elliptical machine (hardly ever use it), don't count steps, don't have a gym membership, just get some exercise and count calories!

    Best of luck!

    57.7 pounds down, 9.8 pounds to challenge goal, 12.8 - 19.8 pounds to ultimate destination weight

    Still on target! At 2lb/week, my excel chart predicts a Nov 29 finish (and 126 by Dec 13th); I know it is highly unlikely that I will continue to lose 2 lbs per week, though, strangely enough, I am still losing at that rate. However, it's a sweet dream and very motivational, so no officious Debbie Downers please.

    Still on target! At 2lb/week, my excel chart predicts a Nov 29 finish (and 120 by Jan 1 but this isn't going to happen because I plan to indulge myself over Christmas); I know too that it's highly unlikely that I will continue to lose 2 lbs per week. However, it's a sweet dream and very motivational, so no officious Debbie Downers please, because whatever I am doing, it's working, and it's with my doctor's blessing!
