    Middle age here 53. Omg did I say that? 😂. Really need support from others. It’s so hard doing this alone. I have over 100lbs to lose and this is my 5,000 attempt at doing it. It’s really starting to affect my health

    Go for it you can do it just believe in yourself.

    Fresh 46 here. The only clothes I have that fit me anymore are a pair of leggings and my husband's t-shirt—not an exaggeration.

    I've been eating everything I want and drinking as much as I want, and I'm tired of being miserable and ashamed. I just want to feel good again and feel like I LOOK good again!

    Hello everyone. I am 49 years old. I was a very healthy, active woman. Five years ago I got very sick and was hospitalized a few times. The prednisone made me gain some weight and I fell into severe depression. I started to overeat and even was binge eating at night. I was 130 lbs and I am now 258 lbs. I walk my dog every day but I haven't changed my eating habits. I am in so much pain, physically and mentally. I have sores where my rolls are. Anyway, I decided today that no more BS I am getting in that mindset that I MUST GET BETTER FOR MY KIDS!!! Hoping that by being on these boards it will help with my motivation.

    Thank you for reading and have an awesome day!

    Well it can still be a good year. It looks like we'll make it through this so really that's kinda awesome! It's amazing what has happened in the world the fact we can come out the other end is a feat in itself.

    Feel free to add me, I'm 36 .. joining MFP again after a long hiatus! Would love to have some accountability buddies. Staying indoors hasn't really helped with my fitness goals, taking it one day at a time now.

    32 here! So NOT middle aged. But you can still feel free to add me. Today is day one for me of starting my new weight loss journey. I'm doing IF the 16:8 method along with tracking my calories.

    Hang in there, you took the first step; acknowledged the situation and came here. 👏

    Happy Friday all!

    I had a carpenter come around today. He's going to build a climbing wall for me in my garden. The delay is getting the plywood - it should all come together in about a week or so.

    Turned 40 last month (pandemic birthdays are not fun) and I'm trying to make a return to MFP and get my *kitten* in gear.

    Happy Friday all!
