I'm new to the group and find that I share a lot of the same problems as everyone else. Weight loss is a lot harder after 40.

I'm looking for community / support / motivation partners to keep my fitness optempo high.

My goal right now is to make working out the highest priority for 1 month where I work out every day no matter in order to attain a behavioral change.

I want to drop between 15 to 30 pounds over the next 6 months in fat.

I would be euphoric if I could rep over 300 by the end of the year in squats (another goal).

    I am around 207lbs. right now, and have done 290lbs squats. I was more excited about doing 3 sets of 7 dips for the first time in forever (without a negative weight) last week. Feel free to add me if you want.

    Hey everybody. Losing weight in your mid 40s is not so easy. I'm getting back to MFP after a brief hiatus. Previously lost 40+ (May-Nov) but have plateaued around 205 and looking to find my groove again. I completed my first mini triathlon last summer and plan several more this season better prepared and with better equipment. They are addictive and expensive! Also have a stretch goal of a half marathon at the end of April. Feel free to add me.

    I like your goal of one month. I find that for me setting microgoals is really the best approach. I might have a day goal or week goal or month goal...and that is more effective for me than looking at the year goal, which can feel overwhelming!
