Since just before covid started I’ve lost 80#s. Walking 4-5 miles a day at the dog park and intermittent fasting. Lose some and plateau, maintain a few months then lose some more. 20 more would be great.

My weight is about fine, but the “furniture ” has moved a bit. My chest is now a bit closer to my drawers

Lost 40 pounds after taking control of my diet. Stalled out now but would like to drop another 10-15. After dinner walks have helped. (Still like ice cream)

So many more excuses for being overweight. Metabolism changes with age so we have to pay attention to activity. Easiest way to lose weight…cut off the alcohol.

20 lbs? No may be 5-10

Losing 10 lbs. brings me to my ideal BMI. I have lost 20 lbs. since retiring from the hospitality industry. No surprise as I no longer eat daily in restaurants as part of my career!

I’m not too heavy just 6 inches too short

I chose lose 20, but 40 would be an even better answer. The sticking point is degree of resolve. Long ago I told people that I “wanted” to be a lawyer. Yet, somehow I neglected to take the law school admission test or apply to any law schools by the time I graduated from college. Apparently, being a lawyer was not something that I “needed.” So, I never became one. We’ll see in which category weight loss finishes, “want” or “need.”

To lose 20 would be a great start!

I weighed at a doctors office two days ago. Glad that I have maintained my 34 pound weight loss over the past 8 months. I’m good!

Great job, Wayne! That required a commitment beyond the ability of most people. Congratulations!

I voted 20 but 10 is only what I’d like to shed. I will now spring is here.

I’m with you here. I add about 5 lbs. over the winter then lose it fairly quickly once I can get outside her in WI.

It’s not the amount of weight – it’s the distribution I would change

Yep, I weigh just 2 lbs more than I weighed coming out of Marine Corps boot camp, but it’s sure distributed differently, and it’s softer than it was then. I remember the day I came home and my Dad shook my hand and grabbed my arm before hugging me and told Mom “he’s solid as a rock, his arm is solid muscle”, not any more. Lol

I’d rather gain than lose, but not gain 20. I could gain 10, please. I’ve always had difficulty gaining weight, but can lose without hardly trying.

Boy John, I have never met anyone who had trouble gaining weight! Lucky you. I’m more likely to agree with Jesse above here. It’s the distribution that haunts me.

I’m ok with my present weight, but if I gained some it would be fine. Growing up my mother worried about me being skinny. Currently, at 73, I still get comments about my weight. Distribution is a factor, but I’m happy to be able to eat more or less whatever I want. Believe me, if I had to lose weight I’m not sure I’d have any resolve to do it.

You really gotta ask this one? I’d bet 98.6% would like to lose 20. Or more!

Well, maybe not lose 20 but certainly 10.

I would much rather gain 20 lbs. , who wouldn’t. It’s so much easier and more fun than losing 20 lbs.
However, yes, I’m in the lose 20 lbs category for this poll.
