Hi Wilma, welcome to the forum.
I'm 50 years old and have been struggling to lose weight due to a thyroid gland condition I've had for a few years.
The Tony Ferguson diet seems to work very well with the scales going down every single day but you need to stick with it.
It contains lots of soy proteins and vitamins and I'm not even sure I should be consuming soy as it works against my thyroid medication :cry: but I'm still making enquiries with that.

If you wish to record your weight on a ticker graph here's a link to instructions on how to do so - Ticker Graph
There are a couple of challenges here, an exercise diary and a food diary (journal) It really helps to record your progress.

Hello Wilma and welcome to the forum.

Have a good look around, this site is really fantastic and the people are great. We all have different goal weights and are approaching the weight loss differently but still seem to encourage and support one another.

So good luck with your weight loss. :D

Hi Wilma,
welcome to the forum! I can only imagine that it would get harder with the extra time of entrenced habits a slower metabolism and the health problems that can catch up to you as the years go on and with the burden of extra weight. Good on you for taking on that challenge. Hopefully this site will help!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
