    Hi everyone! David here! I'm 49 years old but feel a lot younger in mind and spirit. Had my left knee scoped several years ago from a torn meniscus, and lost my mom and brother within a short period of time. The subsequent grieving, depression and sedentary lifestyle (first time in my life) packed on an extra 40+ pounds over a couple of years that I want to lose. My mom/brother passed from heart related issues and I don't want to be the next.

    I have been doing yoga for 2+ years now which has helped rehab my knee and get me back to an active lifestyle. I enjoy walking, rucking, hiking, snow skiing, stand up paddleboard (SUP), SUP yoga, sand volleyball, and working out. I recently signed up for my first Reebok Spartan Race to help motivate me long term, so I've started doing treadmill workouts (I am NOT a runner!) and I'm looking to start some Boot Camp or crossfit style classes starting next month. I've been using MFP for 70+ days now and I'm down almost 14 pounds! Would love to connect with some of you to share stories, support, and inspiration! Namaste!

    I am 45. I need to lose about 70 pounds. I am doing a low carb diet this year. My goal is to log my food consistently every day to become more aware about how many net carbs in the things I eat. #Texas

    Waaayyyyyy over 40! (63) Been hanging around MFP for about 3 1/2 years. Lost 95 lbs, but took a nosedive over the holidays. Tightening back up on the logging again to get rid of the winter "accumulation!" Good luck, everyone!

    Turning 51 today, this is my second week on MFP. Kids are grown and now it’s time for ME. Time to start making healthier food choices and being active. I have committed to walking 10K steps per day and I am here to loose weight and motivate others.
