    I will be leaving the 40's club this October and joining the *sigh* 50's ... there was a time in my mid to late 20's when a giant bag of Doritos and a 2litre of coke served as my breakfast and lunch... and I could eat like 2 big mac meals or a 14 in pizza for dinner and STILL climb a mountain or two with a 60 lb pack on my back day in and day out ... NOW I drive by a Micky D or a KFC and I gain 2 lbs from water (or is it drool?) retention? ahh well...nothing to do but work hard today so I can turn back the clock :sad:

    That would be me. Still 45 but crossing the mid 40 mark in a couple of months. I'm new to MyFitnessPal. This is my attempt again to loose 50 to 60 pounds. I did it many years ago with the help of a personal trainer. I gained it all back after I couldn't afford the personal trainer any more. Now being in my 40's, it is a little harder to loose. I have faith that it will work this time.

    At the end of this group, 48 and will be 49 this fall. I have been on and off of this group for years, I keep coming back. I just started logging my foods back again and am in for the long haul. I have about 40 pounds to get off -I did it about 4 years ago and it has crept back on. It seems like this go around is much harder - damn metabolism and age.

    43 here. A PAS (professional @$$ sitter) trying to get my act together and drop off the 40 pounds I've gained in the last 4 years. Not easy; but, given the amazing coworkers I have who have jumped on board to make it a challenge between all of us, it's so much easier!

    Hi there, I'm 43 and will loose 65 pounds. We can track together if you would like to ad me. It seems like the 4 and the 0 got together, and started laughing and high-fiving each other when I was getting bigger and bigger. I said, "No!, Really?!" Everyone says once you hit 40 then things get real tough when it comes to weight loss. Slow metabolism, hormone imbalance, yadda yadda. So I took it as just my age and I was taunted by the creeping of fat on my body. Then I kept bugging my doctor asking what is going on? They kept telling me I could do weight watchers. I am too cheap to pay for a program not to mention, I have the mind of an old goat. So, as I was gaining about 2.5 pounds a month I was thinking nothing was changing with me. I was getting more tired, less interested etc. Doc thought I was depressed and again mentioned weight watchers. So after almost two years of getting deeper into the mind trap of weight problems, I finally asked to see a specialist. In my case, I am being treated for subclinical hypothyroidism. The test ranges have changed in the US and my clinic was on the old scale. I have been on the medication, (lowest dose), for 6 weeks now and moods have improved and energy too. I no longer have that 3 o'clock yawn session where I feel like I am drifting into a fog. So, with that said, I joined here from browsing online. Not to write you a book, but maybe we can support one another in our goals. Take Care,.
  • Turned the fabulous forty this year and ready to finally take the plunge in changing my lifestyle for the second time. I always had problems on day 14. I don't think it's going to happen this time. Looking for friends in the same boat as myself for support and understanding.
