56. Good for you!

There are a lot of plans to look at and it sounds like you can get information and create a plan just for your needs and goals. My daughter and her husband were on Weight Watchers last year and they both liked it and had some results. But they both work crazy hours, some travel, and it didn't seem to fit their lifestyle.

I usually lose at least 10 lbs between Thanksgiving and New Years, just don't have an appetite. It comes back in Jan. I noticed I've been feeling hungry the last few days, but we'll see.

I quit smoking when I was about 36 and gained a lot of weight. My doctor thought I had an addictive personality and sent me to a counselor. She felt I was a victim of the modern diet and suggested the McDougall Plan. I lost 50 lbs and kept it off for over 5 years,until I had a hyst. and went blooey. But McDougall is low fat high carb, and I think I over-used it. Now that the holidays are over, I'll get away from meat and dairy, and get more veggies on my plate It really helps to be focused on blood sugar, seems to keep me on track better. I'm one of those people whose been on a diet for life and gain and lose. I feel different about my goals, so maybe this is how I need to think about it.

You and your husband sound like your doing really well! Happy New Year
