    I'm 45, would love to join the group, my goal is to lose at least 20lbs by my birthday in April, I workout at least 5 days a week and I am on my second week of strength training. My problem is eating, I can exercise all day long, but I really need work on eating right, I am following a 1200 calorie diet and it is hard, so any tips will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Count me in here! I am 43! I am only 5ft tall and 166 pounds. I know a lot of people think wow that isn't a lot of weight but then I am like HELLO I am really short! :grumble:
    Last year I lost 23 pounds then we had some health issues in the family and I had an injury so life went on for a few months. I thankfully didn't gain any weight back but never lost more. I started working out again about Oct and within a month a heel spur found me and has not left me no matter what I do or how I yell at it :noway: ...I have tried to adapt my workouts around my foot, but I miss the treadmill so much. I have given up soda and am working very hard on changing how I totally eat. I still slip sometimes but pick myself up.
    Would love to make a lot of new friends (especially anyone who may be my height! ) to fight this battle with..

    I am a newbie to the site and just installed the app on my iPad. I would like to join the group. I am 44 and stuck between 135-140 lbs and really want to get down to about 125 by summer. The app has really shined a light on how little proteins I eat....I think that along with long office hours most of the time are my problems. New year, new focus on healthy eating habits. Looking for fast fulfilling meal solutions with low calories...is it possible to be full on a yummy low calorie meal?

    Hi everyone, looking for a little guidance here. So primarily, I was focused on losing a lot of weight and as such, I've stuck to a very low calorie diet somewhere between 500-800 calories. I have stuck to ellipticals and treadmills, but now I am looking to do some serious toning and moving on to other types of workouts. I am a serious novice when it comes to eating healthy and as for fitness, well honestly, I know next to nothing. Any suggestions you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Count me in - will be 45 this year and will have an empty nest come September. I'm looking for new ways to occupy my time so I won't go stir crazy :-)

    Hi! I am 40 soon to turn 41. I am 5'6" and currently around 180 and my goal is to get back to 130lbs. I started MFP in November at 190, so I have made a little progress towards my goal, but slid back a few pounds last week when I was sick (feeding a cold). I am trying really hard to eat more vegetables and organic foods, leaner meats and more vegetable based proteins, but I love food, including the bad stuff, so every once in awhile I'm bad. I started working out with a personal trainer in November and that has been a great motivation for me to stay on track (don't want to waste my money!). I was 120lbs for my teens and early 20s, but since my late twenties my weight has been a yo-yo. I have had two major weight loss successes: lost 80 lbs at 30 y/o and kept it off for several years, then several years of yo-yo weight (during which time I also had my 3 kids), then in early 2010 when my youngest was not quite a year old, I lost 50 lbs, but most of that crept back on too. So I am starting the journey again. I know what to do, I know how to do it, I have confidence that I can accomplish my goal! But once I do, I hope that it will be for good this time! They say third time is a charm. I hope so! Please feel free to add me as a friend!! I'm excited to read everyone's tips, stories of success, and hope to be there to provide motivation too!

    I just turned 40 this summer. My stats -
    Starting weight 252
    Current weight 187
    I've lost those 67 pounds in less than 5 months. For me, it's about the diet for the weight loss. I love my exerci, 120minutes of zumba and 40 minutes of strength training, minimum.

    My goal, which I may change when I get there, is to lose another30 pounds or so.

    Hi all, I'm Jim; I will be 40 in March 2012. I am only 5'-5" tall and I am weighing in at 212 pounds! I started losing weight about a year ago, when I was at my all-time high of 270! MFP has helped me drop from 235 to 212 in just over 2 months. Lately I've been struggling to stay under my daily MFP calorie goal of 1270. I just started strength training in the past month. I've been doing planks, leg lifts, pushups, and dumbbell curls. Also a minimum of 30 min cardio at least 4x weekly. Does anyone have tips for me on how to keep losing and stay motivated? I need to lose another 62 pounds....
