Looking to expand our small intentional Group:Women over 40, Need to Lose 70-100+

If you are a women over 40 trying to lose 70-100+ pounds and would like daily/weekly group support, please reply to this post and I will invite you to the group. If you're comfortable sharing your real first name also, that would be helpful. Whether you started in January or are starting today (...or next Monday) you are welcome to join us!

I began the group in January with 20 members - this quickly dwindled to now only 2-4 of us post every week. I'd like to grow the group so we can truly have daily connections.

We are all on a bumpy journey. I for one have barely lost 2 lbs. this year but another member just posted she's hit her April 1 goal already. One reason for the age limit is that we have more in common (maybe menopause!) and we've pretty much learned to give up on fad diets. We also all have a LOT of weight to take off. In my experience many women (oh, how I wish I could be one of them) are serial dieters who consistently gain & lose the same 20-40 pounds. I get discouraged when I see someone post their starting weight that is also MY goal weight! Again, I wish I could be that person, but I'm not.

We're a nice positive group!

    Hi there, I would love to join, I just signed up a couple of days ago. Long story short, I had lost 90 pounds on my own and due to personal issues I have gained back 35, I would love support with getting back on track and also I would love to provide my support to the group. Thanks!

    I am interested. I had about 80 lbs to lose when I started, but I have 65 to go now, if that's ok.

    How do I sign up? My ultimate goal is 80 pounds, and I started a few weeks ago. Already down 6, but staying motivated is getting tough!
