    Hi All - Happy New Year! I turned 40 in December and it gave me a kick in the pants to get moving - to quit whining about having no time - and see what I look like as a healthy thin person! So far so good - I have lost about 21 pounds since the end of August and dropped 4 sizes! I, too, have started running - I never thought I could do that. I am trying to get some courage to attempt a 5k - people keep telling me to do it but I am feeling self conscious and I am trying to get over it! We'll see - I am inspired by the new year so hopefully I can try something new!

    How do I actually join this?

    Hi all,

    Checking in to bookmark the new thread.

    Welcome to all the newcomers!!:flowerforyou:

    Chris - thanks for the group suggestion and the new name.

    Love reading everyone's goals.
    Am I have 4 more weeks of p90X and think I will do Jillian's 30 day shred after that, then will look at another Beachbody workout. I'm think Insanity.

    Have to still get today's workout in. Am just taking a time out and reading through MFP. Took down the Christmas tree and decorations today. Took me almost all day. Glad it's all done.

    Have a great day all!:flowerforyou:

    Welcome to all the new cool kids! I've been part of this 40+ group for awhile now, and it's a great bunch of people :) Every season we create a new thread to reflect the season. For example, the last thread was "40+ Club: Fall Fitness Fanatics" Only action required to join us is posting in the thread, and you've already done that ;) Don't be shy about posting more.

    Since there are so many new members, I'll do an Intro as well:

    Vital Stats: 41yo, single, male, 6’2”, 72” wingspan, 34” inseam, frame size small to medium, 168-173lbs

    I turned 40 in Sept 2010, and that helped push me over the edge. I decided I had to start doing something about my health and fitness, it sure wasn't going to get any easier as I got older. I lost 40lbs in 8 months. Rather than type out everything again, here's a link to the Blog (before and after Pics included) I posted on September 2011 when I turned 41, a year after I committed to making a change:

    http://www.myfitnesspal.com/blog/hewhoiscd/view/-pics-1-year-later-3-000-cans-of-coke-year-vs-no-soda-for-a-year-144310

    Since then, I've been maintaining with various workout routines. Now a days, I'm back to the basics, running outside and inline skating for cardio, and for upper body strength I am doing pushups and pull/chin ups. I will be participating in my first 5K race this coming Saturday, and I hope to be able to do a Half Marathon by the end of the year. My Avatar pic is from after running 5K on 12/25/2011.

    Hope to hear more from you all!

    40 yr old here, a few months away from 41. My stats are 5'6" and 180 lbs, my weight goal is 155 lbs, to eat fresh (which means cook for myself), and I've also started working with a personal trainer. Literally just had my first session on Saturday and my body is still extremely sore. Hoping to get some cardio in today, if my body agrees with me.

    So glad to have found this posting, will a group be created or just postings?
