Cool I love your encouragement!

I did tweak by eliminating my inflammatory foods (dairy protein, grains, soy) and got below 150 lbs, where I always got stuck when younger than 50. Rate was 0.5 to 1 lb/week, slowing down for the last 15, but it kept moving. Now I maintain with intermittent fasting (a 4-10 hr eating window).

I love Deirdra's encouraging words. I'm almost 54 and averaging just under a pound a week after 5 months. I will keep the dairy protein down from now on. I've done Weight Watchers so many times it's a joke, and while it worked much faster...I kept needing to return. I also like the fasting idea and do it myself and it works, and doesn't hurt! I also take meds that have about 10,000 calories each (not quite) so it's an age and meds whammy that slows me down. But I have resolved to one year of sticking with this because it makes sense and is doable. Thank you for sharing!
