:) I have enjoyed my journey to better health and fitness in the company of other like-minded women. That's what this thread is about. The title says "Women Ages 50+" but all women are welcome.

:) I hope you will join me on this journey and talk about your up's and down's and the strategies that have worked for you.

:) Be sure to bookmark this thread so you can find it again.

:) If you sign your post with a name or nickname and a location, general or specific, it will help us get to know each other better.

The reason most people fail instead of succeed is that they trade what they want the MOST for what they want at the MOMENT.

My word for 2020 is "flexible".

    It was the wettest February on record in the UK. A few communities still flooded out, poor things.
    Today it's sunshine and heavy showers. :s

    I woke up early this morning and rather than allowing myself to spiral into gloomy thoughts I decided to get up and read 'inner peace' quotes. Never fails to cheer me up. :D

    Done my morning exercises and will wash my hair. That always cheers me up too. :p

    Love Heather UK xxxxxxxx
