IS CMLAPPIN (the OP) still around?
She wants support, but isn't here to receive it.

I am checking in again,, got distracted, Several of the heart medications I was on really messed with body and mind, After some adjustments and changes I am feeling better. Found out I had a bit more heart issue than I knew,, not awful but weight loss will improve it,, I will try to be back here every day, need to be with people who understand . I want to also offer support to others who are on same journey, I belong to TOPS here in Ma. and that is a good thing,, Weight has been an issue in my life since I was 13,, Emotional abuse started then and revolved around my weight, When see photos of myself back then I wonder what my father was thinking!! I was not overweight, Anyway, I resolve to get healthy, and finally lose all the weight I need to lose,, I want to feel good again,, healthy , I have a little mobility issues, so will walk in short increments, I have light weights,, and some elastic bands I can use too, I began gardening again in raised beds, to get me outside in fresh air,, and grow nice salad stuff! At 74 I do not expect to be an athlete, but I know I can feel better and improve my quality of life,, Have a great day everyone!!! Take very good care of yourselves!

Hi !! I am wondering if being older slows down weight loss? I have to lose about 75 lbs,, Had triple bypass 5 months ago, Have not lost any weight since then, I know I have to! I am 74, Maybe we can all inspire and support each other!
I am also a member of TOPS, here in Western Ma,

Hi,

I lost 85 lbs with Tops in FL. I had lost 50 with Weight Watchers and moved from NY to FL. Started gaining some back so went to TOPS. I went for about 3 yrs. Nice organization and nice people. My high weight was 265 left Tops at 155. Now I am 173 and want to be 148. I am 75. Many health challenges but as Tops says NEVER GIVE UP. Wish you success. I will check in on you.

If Not Now, When!

8 years ago I lost 80 lbs.
I gained a lot back the last 4 years.

Here I am once again to take charge of my life. This Dec I will be 60 and my goal is to lose 20 lbs by then.

Who will hold me to the fire?
