Doctor: Dr Brims, U.S. Licensed Physician replied 8 years ago
I want to help you,but have to make sure I am answering the question you are asking. Are you asking if it is possible to lose weight at 70 years of age?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
what are my chances at this age
Doctor: Dr Brims, U.S. Licensed Physician replied 8 years ago
You can absolutely lose weight at your age, no doubt about it.The only differnce is that you will not be able to shed the weight as fast as someone who is half your age, so you will not see results as fast as some of your younger counterparts in your workout class.But you will still be able to lose weight, with dieting and exercise

Let me know if you have more questions or concerns

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
