I posted this with my new profile photo today. Click on it to see my progress. If I've removed it from my profile photo it will be in my photos on my profile page.

In a nutshell, I had a baby at 42, took 2 yrs to get around to losing the weight. I'm 47 & 5'2". I do weight training 4-5x week. Cardio is walking. I went from around 30% body fat to 20%. Hips went from 40"-35.5", thighs from 22"-19.5", waist from 30"-25.5".

<---New profile pic shows my progress from Christmas 2013 (140lbs?, 30% BF?)-> August 2015 130ish->today-115lbs, 20% BF In the first photo I was wearing lots of shapewear and was miserable. Second photo was after lifting for a year. I was starting to feel better and my arms were beginning to show some muscle. I wasn't IFing yet. Last photo is after 5 months of IF and for last month I have switched to maintenance

    I've only been maintaining since early March but it's been painless. I'm still losing fat, apparently. I'm down a bit in my hip measurement from March. The extra calories are GREAT!

    Wow - awesome job! I will be 48 this year and hoping to get to where you are by the time my birthday rolls around in the fall. I had my last child at 41 and it's taken me this long to get back on the wagon.
