I signed up today here although I've been lurking about a month. My hope in starting a diary is to achieve more optimum health, lose weight, and feel more positive on a daily basis. I'm male, age 63, 5'10", 177 lbs. My goal weight is 155 lbs, and I am hoping to lose 22 lbs by April 1, 2018. I've lost 12 lbs since Oct, 2017 and have stalled somewhat. I welcome any advice, thoughts, as I give this a go. I truly admire what many of you have done and are doing. Just a little bit my current situation....I'm doing pretty well avoiding sugars/starches...although I generally have a glass of red wine at dinner (sometimes 2). Diet is mostly whole vegetables, meat, fish, eggs, fruit, some cheese, trying to avoid grains, bread, processed foods. I've been out of shape but am now consistently walking about 2 and a half miles a day. I appreciate being here, and thanks in advance for any guidance!
