    You will probably not cross paths at the gym. My wife and I use the same gyms and if we are there at the same time I am on weights and cardio equipment, she is doing classes.
    Be joyful in the fact he is going.

    Hi - I turned 50 last October and decided it's now or never to get fit and healthy before old age creeps up on me ;) just started cycling again and doing Les Mills Body Combat & Body Pump - life is tough but you have to find time for yourself because there is only you in charge of your life ! Feel free to add me ....

    Hey all..still floating around....
    I had a few rough weeks...some close family members had some health issues..
    Thankfully its not serious, but I've had a sty for 2 months now and its a PITA...3 eye Dr appts and drops and antibiotics-$$$ later and it won't budge

    I continued working 5-6x a week, out but my diet was thrown out the window...ate whatever whenever....promising to get back on track tomorrow
    Annoying how tough it is to lose and how easy/fast it is to gain...im guessing its I put on 5-7 pound range (scared to face the scale)....seems like a lot in a short period of time, but jeans that once fit are too tight now to wear out..but I can still button just not breath..LOL...

    Trying. not to beat myself up too much and get back on track
    5-7 isn't so bad and I don't want that number to grow or get larger

    hope everyone is well
    any advice support always appreciated

    You gave yourself some of the best advice!
    1) You cannot worry about what you have already done
    2) You gotta quit putting off till tomorrow what you should be doing today

    Yes, stress is a definite path for derailment for us all - that's why we are here to try and help push each other through those distractions. It ain't easy. But, you that don't make it impossible. You can do this.

    Has anyone tried fasting? My yo-yo eating is getting the best of me lately. Have read list of studies on it but looking for people who have tried is also. :-)

    @critter2009 I have been doing intermittent fasting for a few weeks. No eating between 7pm and 7am Saturday - Thursday (I get home late from work on Friday, so I eat dinner around 7:00). It is nice to wake up with a flat tummy, no bloating. And I fall asleep easier, I assume because I am not digesting food. I don't know if that is the answer you were looking for, but it's the best I have!

    Hi, all! I am "pushing 50" and trying to maintain the health that I found a few years ago. I have lost and found the same 50lbs three times, but REFUSE to find it again!!! I feel better now than I did in my early 40s and trying to follow the advice of folks who didn't take care of themselves and are struggling later in life. I am Kristen from Pittsburgh and looking for "friends" to be accountability partners - so many come and go on this app (including me a few years ago) and I have learned that you really do need a community of like-minded individuals to make this trip worthwhile!

    Hey middle agers what's happening?
    So I have just over a month until my surgery and I've decided to pack in all the skating I can. The old shoulder is not super happy but after tomorrow it gets a 4 or 5 day rest. Tomorrow evening we fly out for 2 days in Alberta for a family wedding. I hope I survive. This family enjoys their rum and I always think I can keep up with the drinkers. I'm too competitive sometimes

    Moooorning, Happy Friday's Eve all!

    Ooo sounds like you have a nice weekend ahead of you @AliNouveau , I love weddings! Don't like rum though, so that wouldn't bother me. Throw me some prosecco or rosé though...

    Welcome @kristenmary70 !

    @critter2009 I'm doing a loose version of IF, where I don't eat between 7pm and 11am. Not sure if the actual IF does anything to tell you the truth, but less eating hours means less shoveling food into my gob, which helps me keep control a bit better. But as said, very loosely, times aren't set in stone.

    I'm curious about it, too! Thinking of doing intermittent fasting but I've read a lot of good things about slightly more disciplined fasts from people who have lost a lot of weight in some of the weight loss subreddits. Apparently there are healthy ways of doing it.

    Everyone swears by IF these days so I'll probably give that a try, though that's prob not what you meant?

    Hi everyone! I'm 42 and starting my weight loss journey (again) after a long time of letting myself go. Want to be back to the point of running regularly, fitting into clothes that aren't plus-sized, able to go a few hours without bingeing on sugar and carbs, etc. Good luck and feel free to add me. I've used MFP a lot in the past but never used the social/community features really so I'm hoping to change that this go-around. Cheers
