So far we have explored how you got to this phase in your life where you are uncomfortable with the extra weight you are carrying.  Now it is time for you to tailor make your eating programme for the next phase, which is achieving optimum health for your age. Let’s face it if like me you are 66 years old, with a wonky knee and a love of more sedate sports such as walking and swimming, throwing yourself into rock climbing, triathlons and training for the Olympics is probably not on the cards.

    Weightloss is currently happening with me. At 68 with knees and back giving me daily grief I had to do something. I have cut out most unhealthy snacks, mainly sticking to a well balanced eating plan. I purchased a treadmill and use it for 10 -20 minutes 4-5 times a week. Something my back is just too sore to go on the treadmill. Since February 28th I have lost 4.4kg. It is a struggle. I am doing this for me not anyone else.

        Carol enjoy having the company of your granddaughter. A few steps everyday is better than none at all. I put the speed on the treadmill on a manageable waking pace but not running as that would kill me. Thank you for your kindness. We both deserve gold stars. Xo

        That’s a good way of looking at it. The medical reckon slowly is best and more likely to keep it off. They say about 1/2 to 1 kg a week. I think 2.2lb is 1kg. As long as we are positive and don’t set unrealistic goals we should do well. Be well SBD happy 🙂
