Default Over 60?

Anyone using Fitday who are over 60 years of age? I'm just starting and wonder if this is a helpful tool. Thanks

Hi, I've trying to lose again. I am using weight watchers on line and tracking calories through here.
Logging food can be tedious but it does help keep you committed to the cause. The reports are helpful. Nice to see a chart of weight month to month. And the daily calories plotted on a graph makes you want to keep the number down.

I am over 60 and I do weight watchers also. I have lost 22.4 pounds in 5 months. I love my group, It is getting expensive and need the money,my six months are up next month. So I am thinking of just doing my weight watcher thing since I know it and doing this program on my computer with their CD don't know if their program is compatible with windows 10 will have to find out.

1,000 calories per day for someone weighing in at 393 lbs. seems low. The re-bound in weight, might be due to the restrictive caloric intake. Keep trying and continued success but look into your total calories per day further.

Agreed.. That isn't 'seeming' low... it IS too low! Even a carefully followed up by doctors and what not diet of 1200 is considered too low! A typical male, to maintain their weight, should be about 2.5x's that at 2500. It was only bond to happen of gaining it back and then some

Keep working it! Try not to restrict yourself so much. In the end, there is a phrase that I like to use often in my life.... 'Everything in moderation'. It's a good phrase to get in your head. Not only for what you eat but even in this case, how many calories you take in! Even just a calorie reduction from your normal every day intake of 300 calories will help you lose weight. Fast? No, totally not but it will result in the long run of losing weight. And yes, slower is better, especially if you aren't using tools meant to restrict your calories because it is so easy to say screw it and gain it all back.

Keep up the work! Take it day by day and track it!

For fit person, age doesn't matter. No matter if you are 60+, go for healthy diet and follow regular workout chart. So you can go for it for sure.

Thumbs up Me too!

I am 60 & using Weight Watchers & I like it very much. I lost 10 lbs in less than 2 months. I like the SP but sometimes I do forget to eat. The foods I ate before WW were always the same but made my BG spike to high or too low so that's when I decided to do WW. I am also Diabetic II, the diabetes, Atkins, Anti-Inflammatory, and the Keto diets didn't work anymore. They made me gain 55 lbs after I had 5 surgeries since Nov/2015. I also have RA but I stopped my meds in Nov/2015 and added vitamin therapy to my regimen.
