    Hi there. Over 40 is where all the cool kids are! I share the weakness for wine. I decided a while ago to stop focusing on my weight, and focusing more on my health. Healthy eating, exercising daily and enjoying life along the way! Now that that number on a scale isn't the driving force, I see more changes in me and I am liking it! Feel free to add me and good luck!!

    Hi I'm 44 and have been putting off losing weight for years. I've lost 10lb so far, 18lb to go til I reach my intermediate goal and decide whether I'm happy with that. I've only been at it for about 5 wks, I like the accountability of the app so I leave my diary open for anyone to view, I really think that helps me.

    I would like more friends so please add me

    I hear you loud and clear! I am 43, and I currently weigh 167....not my heaviest, but still about 30lbs too much. I've been yo-yoing for the past 6 years, and I agree ~ pizza, wine and chocolate are HUGE temptations for me.

    If you need some extra support I have a motivational page on Fbook, if you hit "like" at the top you will see daily updates and tips!


    What specific goals are you working towards?

    I just turned 40 a couple weeks ago and it's like my body hit a wall. I'm trying to get on top of things before it gets too far out of control!! I think the days of mindless eating are over:(

    Forty something's, unite. I think we have to try a little harder than those half our age. But we can do this!

    Hi all I just turned 50. Love being 50! Decided to start that original rock band that I have been putting off for the last 30 years and realized in the videos and photos that I would rock the jeans better if I were 25 pounds lighter. I am also moving around the stage so much better. I am halfway to my goal and very excited to have a whole community to do it with. As I go you go! Xo
