    Hi there! I am Amanda. I am 35 and married with 3 kiddos (5 and twins who are 3). I am a flight attendant and I also have a makeup business, so life is super busy at my house! I think I have spent so much time focusing on everyone else, that I have let myself go and that is changing! I am starting just with watching my calories and keeping up the 10,000 steps a day! I would like to be at my goal wait by the end of the year (if not sooner!).

    Hello! Just finishing up my first year in the 30s and I've finally (*finally!*) got the kick in the pants I needed to get my life in order. First order of business is to lose the weight at last. After a month, I'm down 11 lbs with about 57 to go! This isn't my first time on MFP, but so far it's my most successful.

    I'm interested in making friends here (hello!) so feel free to add me if you're looking for that too. Also, I was wondering if anybody here is training for a triathlon? I've decided to go for my first sprint tri at the end of the summer but I'd like to connect with others who are training for one too (doesn't have to be a first!).

    Anyway, nice to meet you all!

    Hello everyone! I'm 31 from Delaware. No kiddos *yet* but two kitties and a gecko that are our fur children for the time being. Been on MFP for quite sometime now and have lost about 20 pounds with it. I still have about 10-15 more pounds to go to reach my goal. I enjoy running (I've done a handful of 5k's) and Jillian Michaels Workout DVDs (throw in the occasional Autumn Calabrese from time to time).

    I look forward to being part of this community and seeing everyone's progress!

    Hello everyone! My name is Kristy. I will be 32 next month! I am getting married next year! I am very over weight and am looking to loose it. I know I won't be able to loose it all before my wedding but it would be nice to slim down some. My main goal though is get healthy. I don't have any problems yet but last time I was at the doctors, my blood pressure was higher then it used to be. We are hoping to have kids soon and I need to get my act together for that. I have been on MFP for little over a Month and so far I am down 8lbs! It will be awesome to interact with some lovely people my own age going through the same things as I am!

    Hello all!! Name is Mandy. Located near Savannah Ga at the moment. Married to an army man, I have 2 precious little hellions (13 and 10) and having a blast with life at the moment.

    I have some things I'm working on..such as my health/weight. I turned 35 in February and had a wellness check. Found I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I knew the number on the scales were slowly creeping up and I kept thinking that I would get to it....right after I finished watching mad men. LOL!! (So bummed that show is ending.) The doctors scale said something to me that was very offensive. It said I had made it to 190 lbs! It was a wake up call for me.

    Stats: 35 years old,
    5'4 height
    184.3 lbs today

    So, here I am, 3 weeks into my "journey". (Started getting serious March 18, 2015). Strategy at this time to to keep calories at 1200, hoofing it on the elliptical at least 30-60 minutes daily, yoga at least 20 minutes daily, and doing some Jillian Michaels video around 3 x a week (thanks youtube).

    I've hit the frustration of things not happening as quickly as I'd like. I made the rookie mistake of not taking my measurements before I started. I can tell my face is slimmer and my endurance is better (5 minutes no longer feels like an hour on the elliptical, I can hold a plank for a minute and do 2 minutes of jumping jacks like it was nothing). That part does feel really good. It's just that the scale and I are not friends right now. I don't know what I did to garner such animosity but if it doesn't change soon it's going to have to leave. It's really hurting my feelings guys.

    So, ultimately, I'm here looking for some hints and tips, motivation and some accountability.

    Nice to meet you all and you look marvelous!

    Hi all! I'm Marie, 33 years old.. I have 2 wonderful children. 7 year old son and a 9 year old daughter. I work as a night shift RN at a psychiatric hospital, which can be tough to avoid stress eating at times!

    I lost weight in my early 20s, just to gain it back , plus some, through a controlling, abusive marriage and 2 pregnancies. I lost 40 of that and kept it off... But other than that just been up and down .. been back at it , have lost 9lbs (hopefully more at weigh in tomorrow) so far and just feel more dedicated this time around.

    Wishing you all the best!!

    Hi everyone! I'm Mandy, and I turned 30 earlier this year. I'm married, and have 2 kids. I'm a military wife (husband in the Marine Corps), and we are stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, MO. Between 2007 and 2011 I lost 100lbs, and now I'm keeping it off. I run a fitness blog, HarperGirl Fitness online. The name Harper Girl comes from Bob Harper, who is my fitness hero. His workouts and plans got me to where I am today. I also work full time as a business owner, and I spend most of my days working out in the wee hours of the morning before I get into my shop to work. I'm trying to maintain the balance of family, fitness, and life. Please feel free to add me, as I only have a few friends here :)

    34 and getting back on the MFP wagon consistently. Had lost 45 pounds in 4 years, then the last year gained 15 of it back. Glad summer is finally hitting here in Minnesota. A lot easier to get outside and do sports!

    Hi I'm 36 (soon to be 37), married with 2 kids from Ontario, Canada!
    I'm on my way to lose 50+ lbs. I have fibromyalgia, so exercising will be tough for me - but not impossible!
    How is it that I only found this group now?! :)

    Hey guys. I'm 30 y/o, and hail from Southern California. I live with my boyfriend, no want for marriage or kids. I'm very happy, and have never wanted kids and always been a bit unconventional. He's a wonderful man and my best friend and we have a lot of fun together. Regarding my weight, currently I'm sort of maintaining around 104- 109 lbs. A little on the higher end of my "maintenance range" currently, but I've been pretty steady give or take those 3-5 pounds for about 5 or 6 months now. Steadiest my weight has been my entire adult life actually. I'm a runner, and log miles almost every day. Last weekend hit a half marathon PR: finished in 1:45, averaging 8:01 min/mile :happy: I also practice yoga pretty regularly. I have a great studio I frequent that's only a mile from home :smile: As far as being in my 30s now, it has actually been the happiest and healthiest I have ever been. I am LOVING my 30s, and wouldn't change a thing. :blush:

    Hi! My name is Angela. I'm 37. I have no children (don't tell my dogs I sid that :)) I am adjusting to single life after a painful divorce. I'm taking this time to heal and rebuild myself I guess you could say. For many years, I ignored my physical health but now more than ever it is important for me to be well in mind, body and spirit. I tend to keep to myself alot but I'm trying to change that too. I wish everyone here nothing but the best <3
