    Happy early birthday!!
    54 here. Started MFP at about 300 lbs several years ago but am down to 225 now with a goal of 200, so I'm making progress. Having fun as a beginner triathlete (who needs to work on his running).

    Great job losing your weight!! Triathlete! Way to go!!! I don't think that's something I'll ever do, but I admire those who do!!

    Hello,
    I'm 38 and I would like to loose weight once at all. I would like to change my lifestyle, to be fit and healthy. This isn't my first attempt, but a good community can help me...

    Welcome and just join in!!
    Wow, Im a middle-ager. ;)
    Im 41. Back on MFP. Trying to slim down.
    My profile gives all the details but essentially I'm a cyclist and want to get faster, and live longer.
    Im vegan too, but that doesn't necessarily mean lean or healthy.
    Fortunately Im pretty healthy, but not all that lean.
    Feel free to add me!

    Welcome!! I'm not sure I'm ready to admit to being a middle-ager.... you can keep it ;) LOL

    Middle aged ... 53 here. Lost 60 pounds over the past few years (some of it before MFP) and have another 40 pounds or so to go. Anyone feel free to add me. The encouragement we provide each other really helps us to be successful.

    Feel free to add. Not that I have a lot to offer. I can be funny from time to time, but mostly in a "everyone point and laugh" kind of way.

    That made me laugh! :lol: But maybe I’m just easily amused. :wink:

    Welcome!! Good job losing 60#! That's a great accomplishment.
    Turning 40 in December. Started at 370 almost 1.5 years ago. My goal was to be under 200lb by my birthday and I'm already there. Here is to taking my life back.

    You can do it!! How far do you have to go to reach your goal, if you don't mind me asking?

    Oh jeez, I guess I qualify. I'm 44, but I don't feel 'middle aged'.....I guess I subscribe to Hunter S Thompson's philosophy on aging - “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

    I don't always make good choices, but I try to walk that line. I finished my 2nd ironman this year. Might do another. might not. always looking for the next adventure.

    Welcome! I didn't want to admit to being middle aged either!! LOL I love that quote! I'm going to have to post it! 2nd ironman, that's amazing!!

    Wow! Just Wow! ‘Back in the day’ I used to do sprints and Oly’s, but the thought of a half or a full Ironman was just too big a goal. I’ve got mad respect for anyone who has done one, so serious props to you for completing 2! :blush:

    I don't actually have a goal weight. My goal was to be under 200lb by dec 31 and I've already done that. My goal is to have a healthy life from now on. We'll see what weight I end up at.

    I’m just getting the hang of these message boards, so bear with me. :) it was another cold, wet and windy day in Minnesota. Hopefully tomorrow will be better for the trick or treaters. My kids are grown, so now I just hand out candy. Its also my hubby’s bday. :) What are your plans for Halloween?
