Okay, is it just me, or does everyone have this much trouble losing weight after 50? I have walked, starved, prayed, begged, pleaded, cried, griped, and screamed my way through the past three months only to have lost 6 lbs! Now I know some of you are thinking I should be proud to lose 6 lbs, but I have seen days when I could sneeze and burn enough calories to lose 6 lbs.
I refuse to give up, though. I figure if I keep losing 2 lbs a month, I could reach my goal weight before my 55th birthday. Or maybe I should go easy on myself and shoot for 1 lb a month. Factor in the reduced metabolism each year, and I should reach my goal weight by no later than my mid-seventies. Woo hoo! Watch out Charlie boy!!
