    Age 65 and can't lose weight!
    RetiredHuck65 posted:
    I've always weighed about 125 pounds. After age 50, I started to gain. I'm up to 170 pounds, and am having a horrible time losing any of it!

    My weight goes up and down day by day (up two pounds, down 1.7 pounds, up 1.8 pounds, down 2 pounds......) It varies so much, I'm never sure if I'm actually doing something right or if I'm gaining.....

    Medications (and older age!) are making it impossible to lose anything. Help!
