Good morning everyone, I, as the title suggests have been a member for some time but never written a post before, I am 68 on Boxing Day, 5ft 2inches and current weight is 11st 7lb, I would like to lose a stone, anymore than that and I look gaunt, got down to 11st during the hot spell as salad was on the menu most days, but then went on a binge and back to my previous weight.
I consider myself fairly active, swim twice a week, and a yoga session. also have a dog which according to my phone app I walk between 2-3 miles a day, I have access to a large field.
I favour low carb eating as that works best for me, I use Carb Manager but having a few issues with that, I switched from MFP for similar reasons, I try to keep to below 50 carbs and 1200 cals a day. I cook from scratch most days I am a true carnivore and feel quite deprived if I have not had a good portion of meat, the fattier the better, I don`t mind the odd fish meal but not "fully satisfied"after, I am not a fan of rice or pasta so don`t miss those, I do like bread and the multigrain is my favourite, potatoes can be a hardship for me, so many meals are enhanced by a potato, even fish with a nice parsley/butter sauce is appealing with potatoes.
That`s all I think, looking forward to sharing daily trials and tribulations and the highs too of our joint struggle
I am looking for support with portion control.
