    Morning all, hope you're all well.

    I'm faced with the reality of a weakened lumbar region at the moment. They didn't mention this part in the instruction manual!!!!

    I'm 50 next March, I'm aiming to get back to how I looked in my early 40s (profile pic) before health issues took hold.

    I actually love exercise, but my health works against me. Diverticular disease and lower back issues. Damn you, middle age! 🤣

    It might serve you well to find some form of exercise that you don't hate. Even better if it's something you LOVE. I like paddling canoes and kayaks and rowing rafts. My goal is 100 days on the water this year, but I'm behind. I love hiking in the forest; there's a local mountain I hiked up once a week this spring to watch how the wildflower display changed from low elevation to the peak over time. There's a large (about 300 acres) park near my house with riparian forests and a river; I can go walk over 10K without really crossing my tracks much. I ride a bike for errands when I don't need the car/truck.

    I used to dislike swimming, but a few years ago something changed. I do that during the winter; I generally don't get to the gym in the summer. I'm too busy outdoors.

    What activities do you already love to do that will give you exercise?

    I loaned an 8-pound soft SCUBA weight belt to wear when she walks. She thinks it will help her bone health.

    There's lots of options.

    Hi there. 44 years old. Need some major motivation. I've been doing keto and intermittent fasting for about 6 weeks, and have lost 17 pounds. However, I got sick last week, so I didn't do anything for my diet/exercise. Now that I'm better, I'm having a really hard time getting motivated to go back on my diet. Just looking for some friends and motivation.

    49 years old cranky perimenopausal woman here. ;) I tried Keto a few years ago, lost some weight and then lost the motivation to maintain it. My coworkers put together a weight loss challenge for 10 weeks and we all weighed in on Monday. Been drinking my water and sticking to a lot of veggies right now to fill me up. I've taken one mile walks on my lunch break but skipped today because the weather is crappy. I have made it a point to get up and move for five minutes every hour. I typically follow a 16/8 fasting plan but I need to really get more structured about it. I'm sick of trying to lose the baby weight since my baby is now 20 years old..haha!
