I am 66 and need to lose 6 st 7 lbs. I am today starting week 5. So far I have lost 1 st 3lbs so I am very happy my weight is going in the right direction. I am having trouble in building my exercise past bare minimum but I am working on it and intend to improve this week. I find reading the other posts very encouraging its good to know that others are in the same boat as me.
