See my ticker below.
Almost eleven months in to logging on MFP. 61 years old. No surgery, no pills, nothing except counting calories, and determination.
Calories in vs calories out, simple but it works and can be done.
Plenty of people here have done this, but a lot of people do it with surgery as well.
You have to do what is right for you.
Best of luck.

I am so happy you started this thread -- and even happier to see so many wonderful stories of people doing this the old fashioned way -- through just plain diet and exercise. I am determined to do this without any supplements, surgeries, bizarre food combinations, shakes, etc -- I am prepared for it to take as long as it needs to -- there are no quick fixes -- at least not ones that are healthy and permanent.

Keep the amazing and motivational stories coming -- they are very meaningful to folks like me who want to do this (in my opinion) the right way.

Thank you to those that posted their success stories, for showing it can be done. Marking this off to return to when I need a swift dose of stick-to-it-iv-ness and motivation on my journey, especially when I hit my first plateau. One day I hope to add my success story. You are ALL an inspiration.

I have lost over 100 pounds without surgery, just by using MFP, changing my eating habits, and moving more! I still have a ways to go, but I know that I will get there. My profile pic is my before/during.

You can change it if you want to... Go to Settings, Profile Privacy Settings, and choose one of the other options.
