Oh, I love that answer, Sheila!

Butterfly, not crazy at all. There are people older than you on JC. Hope you decide to join.

elusivebutterfly, I think you should try JC. I'm 64 and just finished my 2nd week and while I have a ways to go, I'm very glad I am using JC to get healthier. Good luck!

i dont think age is an issue with losing, it is a state of mind and honestly though i am not 69, i feel much  older than my 53 because of the weight i am carrying and the limitations it is causing on my body.


Just starting is the hard part - hope you got going and are seeing results already

I am 60-- I started JC last year to get in shape for my 60th birthday. Did well for about 8 months- lost over 25 pounds.  But-- due to a big move, health issues, etc... gained some back. Now I am heading for my 61st birthday. I am exercising and slowly losing weight. Feel so much better. You should join in.  Your body and overall health will improve!

I am 62 and started a couple months ago. It works is all I can say. If you stay with the program it WILL WORK. No matter how old we are..

I don't think it's ever too late to make a positive change, regardless of our age

You know I'm 52 and honestly think losing weight helps you feel younger. It's happening to me. I feel more clearheaded and more like my old self. If you don't like what you're seeing and feeling, you might be motivated enough to make the change if you commit to the program. Alot of resistance comes with the idea that somehow you won't have to really do much but I've experienced that the big changes come the more you commit and really listen to what's being taught to you. If I don't drink enough water, if I don't make or buy a salad (toss those dressing, cheese and crouton packets), or go off the program in some way, it has an impact. You can get back to the way you used to be and getting rid of that middle-aged middle is the best feeling in the world! Good luck!

We are never too old to take care of ourselves..and definitely losing weight will help us so much.  Caring around extra lbs makes us tired and we want to enjoy life to the fulliest and be mobile and able to have fun...I left Jenny 1 yr ago gained some back now and the journey of losing it and taking care of me.  Age is in the mind...and when we carry extra weight around it tires us and makes us feel old..Lets stay positive and lose weight and forgot about age..and think about US. :)  Sunnygirl 51

Hi Jenny,


It is never too late.  I am 75 and have come back to JC for the umpteenth time.  Mainly for health reasons  but I have to admit,  I also like to look good!   You are as young as you feel!

I am currently down 12 lbe of my 40 lb goal.

Good Luck

Hi, I started Jenny, for the third time, the beginning of July.  I am 71 years old, and I am pleased with my decision to rejoin.  Having hypthyroidism, arthritis and of course, a slower metabolism,  my weight loss is a bit slow.  I am a patient person.  I have lost 10# since beginning the program, and I cannot believe how much better I feel losing those pounds.  My energy level is increasing, as well.  I am a happy camper.  If one is hesitating to join, you can always ask your physician, and most will be happy you have taken a step to lose weight.  Then, come join Jenny! :)
