You can lose weight with limited, or even no, exercise. It might just take longer.

Several years ago, I started a new diet and hurt my back at the same time. I couldn't exercise for more than 6 weeks. I lost 8 pounds that first month on the diet.

emoticon The key is low carb. there are good carbs and no so good carbs. Keep the fruits and veg's in and limit the breads, cakes and cookies. I'm so bad about cookies, I love them. They always find a way into my shopping cart. I have not had one in two weeks, now I don't crave them. Still look longingly at them in the market, but not in my cart.

This group has a lot of advice, some you may need and others, just file for the future..

Lord, bless my diet buddies and help me met my weight goals

Hi all - looking for an active team that compares foods, results, what's working, what's not.

I'm 57 & although not obese (yet) I'm trying to bring the pounds back down to a happier place. Sitting all day at work isn't helping, so I'm reducing my carbs & trying to stay in at a little bit of a calorie deficit at the same time.

I went really low on my carbs the first 4 days, but then decided that might not be right for me - not because I was really missing foods - just feeling like it might not be the healthiest balance for me. Now actually, I found it hard to increase carbs. (I brought a SMALL apple in my lunch today - that ought to fix that - LOL) But I also added more veggies to my salad for lunch.

Anyway - as per expectations set - I lost about 4 lbs of water & here I sit.

I have a couple of non-life threatening physical impediments that are interfering with exercise - a foot problem where I can't do "extensive" walking, and now a newer shoulder issue that has flared up recently. I'm mostly doing water aerobics - just bumped it up to 3 times a week - 7 a.m. class - kind of proud I'm actually making it!! (CRAZY because I am NOT a morning person at all)

Hope to get to know some of you all & we can all work towards our goals and encourage each other. Keep reading things that say "this isn't about weight loss - it's a lifestyle". Ok if I'm not going to lose weight it could be an issue for me - lol/whine.

Laters all,
