    I am 44 and need to lose at least 70lbs. I am trying to start a small group to help motivate and challenge and just be there for each other. If you would like to try my group it's called 50lbs + Divas.

    I'm 50, my starting goal was to lose 83 lbs. I have lost 32 lbs in the last 11 weeks! I'm on a mission! More support is better!

    Turned 42 in February and got pretty serious about getting healthy again. Goal for this year is somewhere in the 75-90 pound range with a final goal somewhere around 100. Fortunately, I'm over half way toward the final goal!

    I turned 44 this month. If anyone would like to add me feel free. I set a goal back in November 2013 to lose five and ended up with loosing 20lbs total. I am maintaining now. All I did was track my calorie and fat intake on here and stuck to that. Always been active, so I knew that wasn't the issue. Just eating too much and it was showing on the scale.

    I am 43 and need to lose 85-95 pounds. Just starting out and wanting to make a lifestyle change, not just lose the weight. So my focus is healthy food and healthy activity. I need more motivating friends!

    I just started this journey around 10 days ago, and have dropped 10#. I have a lot to lose, so it's not too surprising that the first bit came off rather quickly. For me, the key is consistency, persistence and accountability. That's the main reason I am looking to connect with others that have the same goals as I do. I am also over 40 (just turned 43 last month) and want to lose a total of 130#. I have lost a significant amount of weight in the past, but over the last 7 years much of it has crept back on. This time, I am more motivated than ever to lose it and keep it off for good.

    I have two serious, physically-debilitating diseases, so losing the weight and taking a lot of pressure of my joints will definitely make mobility easier as well as increase my life span--and I have so much life left to live. Let's do it together!
