I started walking 1-2 miles a day about 6 weeks ago to lose weight. This was after having gel injections in both knees. I wear knee braces when I walk. I am doing this because I need to have both knees replaced and I know my recovery would be faster if I wasn’t as heavy. So far I have lost around 10 lbs. This is weight I put on because I wasn’t walking like I had been due to knees aching.

When I retired a few years ago I weighed about 205 and looked and felt terrible. I changed my diet, became more physically active and dropped 50 lbs. I’m now lower than when I retired from the military almost 30 years ago.

I lost 75#s during the covid lock down. Now to lose another 30 but I have been stuck here for 3 months. A friend took me on a “hike” on Sunday that turned out to be a mountain climb. Hoping that doing that will kickstart me.

I find it interesting, but understandable that when people realize I wish to gain weight they are totally confused. I’m 6 feet waist size of 33 and weigh 200 lbs. I am 56 and overweight based on BMI and have a sub perfect life insurance based on this BMI score. I’d like to gain another 10 to 15 lbs (keeping my waist the same 33 inch.

I gained 40 pounds in my mid-section due to medical treatments. After a summer of physical work and dieting last year, I lost all of it. Now to keep it off ……

I’m always envious of folks who can complain that they “just can’t put on any weight”. Huh?

We met a guy in a campground years ago who said, “I used to have a nice butt, but somehow it all slid around to the front”.

I just turned 71 and the past 7 months have been quite the journey for me. I was (no other way to say it) “FAT”. I have lost 38 lbs and am planning on losing 10 more. If I can do it anyone can. It is all mindset.

I only weigh about 5 lbs more than I did in high school almost 60 yrs ago, but I still would like to lose those. Do some light weight excercises 6 days a week and try to walk 2-3 miles every other day. If I stick with my excerises and walking, I feel better and don’t gain weight.

Actually, I’d like to lose 20 lbs of fat and put on 10 lbs of muscle. However, at my age the opposite is happening.

I am 15 pounds under my “allowable Army weight” from 30+ years ago. Just a little bit at a time.

Too bad there’s no way without exercise. (that’s NOT “extra fries”. I need to get my hearing checked.)

There weren’t enough choices. How about gain or lose 10, or 5? 20 is a bit much, well at least for some of us. I need to gain 10, but not 20!
