    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

How can I be gaining , when Im not eating more than 1200 to 1400 caleries a day and Im in the gym 4 days a week. Im almost 60 yrs old, but I liked myself 50lbs ago. Is it too late to change.
