    I started 2 weeks ago, and must say I feel great! Staying within all guidelines, but guess being older, I am not losing as fast as I want, but I am determined to stay with the program 100%. I must say though, My clothes are fitting better. I’ll welcome any special tips you may have, we’re all on this journey together!

    Hi there Cathie. In response to your question, I am over 65 and yes weight loss is ever so slow. I asked the same question when I first started and was encouraged by the fact that women in our age group responded that yes, they did have weight loss. One woman lost 20lbs over 4 months…so on average 5 lbs a month.
    I have personally lost about 7 lbs in almost 2 months. Not great but I’m still at it. I feel great and have gotten rid of digestive and water retention issues. Next I’m going to include some exercise.

    Yes I am over 65 and have been on the program for 1 year. I reached my goal and have been maintaining easy. But us older gals lose slower and I learned patience. It till come off but with me only 1-2lbs a week and sometimes nothing. But in the long run it does..

    Hi – I am starting today and am 69 – I lost my weight over two years ago, about 62 pounds I maintained for 1 and a half years but went though so many issues with family and health I gained about 12 pounds over my goal. Starting today I am committing to doing the 21 days and see where I am. I know once I clean the sugars and bad carbs out of my system I will be stronger and do well. This program works great and I love it. My loss before seemed really slow but, I kept remembering some childhood sayings like: “the turtle won the race” and “I think I can, I think I can”. I am the leader of my weight loss group. “TOPS” (Take Pounds Off Sensibility), which helps me but also hurt me loosing my KOPS status (Keep Pounds off Sensibility), We need all the support and help we can get to not only take off the weight but to change our eating patterns and keep it off. The great thing about PS1000 is they are their for you even when you get to goal.

    Ellen I am also in TOPS and I have struggled losing. Never made it to KOPS. I just want to get to a healthy weight. If that is KOPS for me so much the better but not the goal. I just ordered Phase 1 book and will start soon. so know I hear you since I will be 71 in September. Slow is better than not at all. Keep going forward.

    I am 67 and have been on this plan for almost 4 weeks. I’m happy to see that I am not alone in my slow weight loss. Frankly, I hadn’t considered that age would play a role, but it makes sense. I have only lost 4 pounds total and have become very discouraged. But with this new information, I will continue to work the program. I find that I’m not hungry and the variety of food allowed keeps me interested. Time to add in more exercise too….that gym membership needs to be better used. Thank you for this thread!

    Yes, I’m 66 and plan to start over the weekend (7/16). Been all over the map for many years up and down. I figured I better turn the tide now or may never! My best success was sugar free and low carb/healthy fat. I want to apply all my tools and make a permanent change.

Determined to live healthy in a sensible way. Keep us posted and Ask questions whenever you you need help. Everyone seems more than happy to respond, and this alone is gratifying.

    I just joined yesterday and I am 70. I’ve always lost weight slowly, but eventually I got it off. My best was after Nutrisystem, where I lost 50 pounds! Unfortunately, I didn’t learn anything about eating right, so I gained it back. I went back on it with my husband a number of years later. He lost 40 pounds, I lost 20. Now I’m shocked to see what I have done to my scale! I’ve been trying to do Weight Watchers, but didn’t lose a thing. I’m eager to get started and am looking forward to comments from others “over 65”.

    Good luck Linda, I started yesterday too. I am amazed the drops really seem to cut appetite. I was concerned that I would be hungry, but didn’t feel those pangs. When I’m working on the computer, I try to stand up every so often to get the juices flowing again. We can do this!

    Hi Laura,
    Thanks for the thumbs up. It helps when others can relate. I know what you mean by trying to stand a few times during the day. I do the same until until my leg and feet start to ache. I too am impressed that I don’t have the hungries with the program. Down 2 pounds this morning. Very happy with that.
