Gerald, welcome. You are off to a great start. I have found that exercise really helps the pounds come off and gets you fit!! I am turned 60 this year and wanted to get in better shape as well as lose weight. JC meals help me keep my portions in check.

Congratulations on the great job so far! Workouts are important especially for those of us over 50 because we tend to replace muscle with fat. Tracking my calories has helped me alot. Good luck!

Congratulations & welcome! I walk every day and really enjoy it. I've gone from short 15-30 minutes to 3+ miles at a time and have recently started hiking. Going on a 5 mile hike tomorrow, the longest yet! The more I lose the more I enjoy & crave movement. Keep up the great work!

Gerald that is great and encouraging to me. I have my first weight in this week and hope I at least lose something. I too am walking as much as possible and plan on joining 9 Round ( a local quick tract fitness club).  I'm on the 1700cal plan as a guy and feel I can't get in all the food each day. Are you seeing this as well??

Thank you all.

James, I’m supposed to be on 2000 to 2300 cals per day but usually am at around 1800 cals + or - 100 cals, rarely go over 1900. But even when I try to go over I do not find suitable things to eat but since I’m not hungry it does not matter.

 

As for the weigh in, I was not scared because I way myself every morning therefore I knew I lost weight.

Also I had really bad eating habits before, going to restaurant twice a day if not three times. This is a big change for me but is easier due to the fact that every meals are planned and I don’t need to cook that much, which will be the next steps once I have picked up better habits. I do find it easy for now (No decision to take, follow the plan :-) )

 

For the walking, I purchased a fitbit one, which is an activity tracker clip that links to my fitness pal that I use to keep track of ALL the food I eat for a given day and track my calorie in and out. And it keeps me honest about exercise, I try to walk 10,000 steps per day and if I look at it in the evening and it says less 4,000 I go out and walk for 30 to 40 minutes.

 

I wish you a good first weight in this week, but whatever the number on the scale, keep at it, we're at the beginning of a long journey and it's worth it.

 

Please let us know how your weight in went.
