    Can I still join? I'm Maureen from Colorado Springs, Colorado - now in Kentucky. Lost a buttload of weight 5 years ago on a high protein diet and I (stop me if you've heard this before) gained it all back, and more. I am now 57 and I have MS, a husband, a teenage daughter and a dog. I work full-time, have difficulty walking but need to exercise - and need some accountability and support to *REALLY* make a life change this time. Glad you're all here!

    My wife and I are bowling in a league for the first time. She just turned 60. Im 58.
    She finally got wil enough with Humira to bowl again. Now she really loves it. I had always enjoyed bowling but didn't go much in the last decade because she couldn't.
    And Sunday we signed up for a second league. Bowling Sunday and Tuesday in leagues. And several other days for practice. :) ;) B)

    Love this! Have fun Guys!

    @MaureenInCS, welcome! I have RA and plantar fasciitis so have trouble walking as well. I bought a used recumbent bike a couple of years ago and after using it to hold my coats I now ride it for a minimum of 20 minutes a day. It's easy on the knees and stable.

    Swimming is great for a no impact full body workout too. If you have a Y near you, check it ot if you can.
    My wife has spondyloarthritis. Deep water aerobics classes really help her with mobility, strength, and endurance.

    So sorry she's dealing with that, @fishgutzy.

    I am starting back up again this week. I'm not up to my highest weight ever thank god, but I have gained weight over the winter and holidays. I'd love to have some accountability for exercise and diet, and feedback. Just turning 50 this coming year -- hope that qualifies me!

    Very good luck in this journey.

    Can I join? I recently turned 50. I started working out again 5 to 6 days a week. I could use the support. I've joined a group who does weekly Fitbit challenges to keep me on target.

    Good Afternoon everyone. What's everyone got on their agenda to reach their goals for today?

    I've got Upper body lifts in the Gym and then 30 min Light Cardio.
