    Back at it again....ugh! Why can't I stick to this for more than 3-4 months?

    I feel you. I have lost count of the number of years I've been here and the number of times I've had to start again

    So the chaos of the season is nearly over. Here in South Africa our school year starts in January and ends in December. So the season of chaos is begins at year end exams, goes through Christmas, New Year, my son's birthday and then ends when school begins again. I haven't got even half the things done that I wanted to do this school holiday!

    Hello middle agers!

    I bought a new car recently. It is a Kia EV6, which will be delivered in February - my first electric car. It is a sensible family car, and the variant I went for does 0 to 60 in 5 seconds.

    Congrats on the upcoming arrival of your new car πŸ™‚ did you get a red one? Apparently they go faster 😁

    Red cars also get more traffic tickets. Do not make me explain how I know this. ☹

    That's not it, Jo. 😁

    Hello, all! I'm 46 years old, and from SC. I've actually been here since 2013. I never got involved in the community aspect of MFP. I took a long break, and now I'm back. I'm hoping that meeting people and gathering a few friends will give me the motivation I need to get back on track.

    Hello, fellow β€œmfp-ers” 😊! I’ve been on mfp for a while (over 3 years) and looking for some new friends. I just turned 40 in the summer and hail from the eastern half of Canada. Feel free to add me as long as you are not a bot! πŸ˜‰

    Hey everyone! Been off and on MFP for 6-7 years. I hope everyone survived the weekend and is still pusing toward their 2022 goals. I def am ... being more active on MFP keeps me more disciplined in real life. 43 in SC.... feel free to add.

    It is indeed red!

    And I picked it up yesterday. As a middle ager, I am slightly baffled by some of the new fangled technology, but it is easy enough to get moving (and it is scarily fast).

    In my 30's and almost the highest I've been. Can't wait to go back to my teens and 20's weight of 110. I'd be happy with 120. Currently like 130's. Lol! 30's - 130's. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

    Brilliant! My family got into beekeeping for a while. I love bees. Love honey even more!

    I have been working out with my teenager. How to teach proper form and the benefits of slow reps and which muscle groups are activated when he just wants to show me up? Ah well. Maybe some of it will sink in and help him later in life
