Hi, I just joined this forum because I've been doing LC for a few months and haven't lost much weight. Actually, I no longer weigh myself, I let my clothes guide me, as I can't stand the disappoint of not seeing the scale move. I'm 63 and losing very slowly. I'm 63, wearing a size 12-14, would like to be slimmer, but doing LC has really helped me with many issues. My energy is better, my GERD is gone, and my tummy is shrinking. I guess I just got caught up in other's fast weight loss while mine is proving to be very slow. But I am feeling better. I'm posting here because I enjoy reading about others in my age group who are dealing with the same thing.

Hello. I am 52, soon to 53 and been LC for several years now. I love the energy it gives me and it goes a very long way toward controlling my diabetes. Being LC means I can be active. I hate sitting around and doing nothing so it really suits my lifestyle. It's just a great way of life.

Hi, I'm new to this. Just joined today . Do we just pick someone's comment and reply to it ? Sounds like fun getting to know some new people around the worls and in the states. How do I get started with my little profile on the left hand side ? Thanks, folks.

I just left a message but I lost it. I'm new to this. Just joined today. Sounds interesting and fun sharing with people all around the world and in the states. Do we just reply to someone's message at random ?

Thanks, Cheri

I've been on LCHF for 3 months. Losing inches but no weight. However, since I am a senior, I guess it takes longer. I'm in good health, stay active teaching music , walk my dog, etc. so will stay with it. I feel better and have gotten some other friends on it, too. Love cooking new LC recipes !!

Great reading other peoples comments. Helps a lot !!!

Peace and blessings Betty. Your story is also so inspiring. I have yet to share mine, but in each one I read, I see a little piece of my own struggle. Keep on on keeping on. We all forget that it's not a destination, but a journey. Sounds like your journey has been generally very successful, your heading in the right direction, that's what matters most.
