    Hi Angee my name is Wendy and I am 45 (not sure how that happened as I was only 21 yesterday :laugh: ). My mum always told me that it is so much harder to lose weight when you get past 40, and she is so right.

    FR sent :smile:

    Open to all friends, as I need as much help and motivation as I can get :smile:

    I'm 47 and working very hard to become healthy. It's great to see so many of us in the same age group who can commiserate and offer support.

    I'm 47, making it work but it is taking more focus than I've ever had to put forth. Having friends helps immensely!! Anyone is welcome to add me! My diary is open to friends.

    Hello! I am 48 (soon to be 49) and I would love more friends to give and receive support from. This is my second serious go-around and I am a week in and so far (fingers crossed), it's working again for me. It was so much easier when I was younger!!! If I only had the foresight to know it would be harder now with age. My ultimate goal is to be fabulous by the time I hit 50 in 15 months. Would love to receive friend requests, so please feel free to add me :)

    OP Angie. First, I came here looking for the grown ups, so your post kept me from having to post this myself! As far as ageism goes, the "kids" here dish out plenty of it to what they consider "old" folks. I hope for their sake, a youth serum is invented in the next 10 years because they seem to think 40 is a disease.
    I am sending a friend request to everyone who answers this thread. Feel free to contact me, post, and all!
    I liked 40 better than 30, and intend to like 50 even more. I'd be satisfied with losing 10 lbs, but should lose 20. I'm a realist though, and can't believe how hard i have to fight for every ounce! On the upside, if i am naughty, it doesn't pack on instantly either as long as i get back on track soonish. I'm a Massage Therapist and not at all judgemental about struggles with weight and aging. Just the fact that you are here learining a healthier way is good enough for me!

    I'm rooting for all of us on team "old"

    I'm Matthew... just hit 43 this month (May) and have been working out again these last 8 weeks to regain some of poise I had in my mid-twenties/thirties. I've been a gym-rat since I was 17, punctuated by a few years here and there of complete and utter apathy toward my fitness/diet. Four years ago when I last quit I did not own a smartphone.

    How awesome is it to have smartphones and fitness apps now? I've always tracked my workouts (by a paper journal and pen) and now technology makes tracking macronutrients and exercise so much easier. It's a good time to be alive.

    Friend me!

    Hi! I am 50!! is that too old for friends over 40?

    I am back again using my fitpal app but this time I decided I need fitpal friends!

    I made it half way thru my weight loss... started feeling comfortable and deprived and started eating again... 5 pounds crept up.... soon it will all be back if I do not stop now!

    I am starting today and decided to look on the page here for friends that would help me and motivate me! I will do the same for you! I really would love fitpal friends that we can motivate and support each other!

    Please add me as a friend if you think we can help each other! I want to be healthy and look great which will help every aspect of my life. Let's face it... overweight people get judged, picked last or not at all, overlooked... I do not want to be fat anymore!

    I'm 46

    for my 40th year of life I did Ironman. Then took 5 years off from endurance and did heavy games = got big

    I liked being smaller and faster better than big and strong, so I am losing weight and distance training.

    My plans are to do a 100 miler Ultra before I turn 50.

    If I line up with what you are trying to do, let's connect.
