Post by Ramsey prompts me to post this. I’m 81 yoa, retired, 6 ft tall and can’t lose weight. This morning I’m at 207. I spent most of my life at 140 to 150 and was moderately active. As the years progressed, so did I.

I eat lightly twice a day. I generally go to a city park twice daily to do a one mile walk. I strap on 5 pound ankle weights prior to walking. Due to arthritis in back, legs and right knee, I walk on grass instead of the concrete. Doc says that, with the exception of my mild pot belly, I’m in better shape than any of his other patients of my age. Arthritis limits my activity somewhat but I don’t feel handicapped.

This is not acceptable. How to get the pounds off?

Try eating 5-6 small meals a day, this keeps metabolism active. Since you do one mile twice a day, try extending each walk a little farther each time. Just take it easy and don't push too hard. With a goal of two miles each trip to the park.


“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”

It’s pretty thin. My middle son is 5’11 and 130 lbs….kid could hide behind a T-post.


I’m 5’5 with no shoes and 150-152lbs currently.

Certainly tougher the older we get. Heavy water intake, smaller/more frequent meals and moderate exercise for me. 259 on December 1st, 206 this morning. Still a work in progress but slowly getting there.

At 150 pounds, I was thin but healthy. Could go all day doing manual labor, run a mile,etc. Now, I feel just like an old fat guy. On dang little input.
