I am also older - almost 56 - and a carbaholic, and new to this site. I'd be happy to be your diet buddy - I could use a weight-loss friend too.
I live in the state of Oregon, USA. (Just north of California.) I am looking to lose about 25 lbs. (close to 2 stone) and get more fit. I have been up and down. At my heaviest (about 1 year ago) I was 190 lbs. (13.5 stone). Now at 176 (down about a stone), and joined FitDay in search of new tools and motivation after a friend lost a lot of weight using this or a similar site. I struggle with exercise - never seem to get to that state of actively looking forward to it that some people describe.
Seems we have some things in common?
