    Goodnight. Its bedtime for me. Just after midnight, but I'm sure I should be getting more rest than this.

    It is a Happy Friday. 33 days and 16.2 fewer pounds. Was trying to do 15 lbs in 30 days. Unfortunately I have a weakness for Halloween candy.

    1st 5k = 9 days away 😄

    Hi all!

    I'm 55 and struggling to lose weight.... Just two years ago, I went on a mission to get in shape. I lost 45#s and was never so fit in my life! Unfortunately, I also broke my wrist and it took a whole year to get complete function of it again :(
    I really want to get back in the saddle again, but have up and down motivational days.... Please add me to the group... thank you!!

    Good Morning, At my best this year I was down to 210, lately I have been feeling really fat and out of shape(7 weeks of surgery recovery) I weighed myself this morning, which I really didn't want to do ! I weighed in at 218 so I don't feel to far gone. Not sure why I felt the need to post this other than the fact that my cats didn't seem to care when I told them :open_mouth:

    Cats are like that eh?

    I'd you've been recovering from surgery then you probably expected some blobbiness. Hope you can get back on track easily. I've been particularly blobby lately. I had surgery 4 weeks ago. I'm working on rehabbing that and doing whatever I can.

    Off I go again. I feel like I am on a hamster wheel. I have been a fitness member for a very long time but today I paid $50 for a full year of premium membership. I wish everyone the best.

    Hi - I am 40. I have been on this journey for my entire adult life (basically gaining and losing 20-30 lbs every few years). Hoping to make it stick this time around!

    Hello all I’m 47 and have been heavy since I was about six years old. I have finally decided to make time for myself and get healthier in mind and body. I could use all the support I can get in this new chapter of my life. Feel free to send me a friend request, like to meet new people and make friends.

    You can do it. It does require a lot of discipline, but there's a lot of great folks here for support. Log everything and find accountability partners to help you along the way.

    Good luck!

    Great decision. There are plenty of great folks here to help support you along the way. Make sure to weigh and log everything and try to incorporate exercise when you can. It doesn't matter if it's small, not long, etc. More important to get yourself disciplined with it and eating.

    Good luck!

    Well that's good. I might've misses something but what was your surgery for?

    Happy weekend middle agers. I woke up with my son's bug he's had all week. Hoping getting outside and active helps with that a bit.

    Have a great day my middle aged buddie

    Walking would be good for that. When are you allowed back to normal activity
