    I am old.

    You're not old. You're seasoned. Experienced. Learned. Embrace it!

    I'm 66, and every day that I wake up and get both feet on the floor is a good day.

    Hey, y'all. I'm 43, looking to lose 40-50 lbs. This is my second time around, and this time I'm trying to hook into the online community, so that I'm in good company instead of trying to go it on my own. Please feel free to add me.

    Thanks to a history of ankle injuries, I've been rehabbing an ankle and I'm mostly walking for exercise, but just started adding yoga back in. Ultimately, I want to get back down to a safe weight and strong enough that I can get back to dance classes. If I really rock it, I'd like to get back to gymnastics again.

    Makes me sad I'm now old enough for this group, but love the people here!!

    You don't want to be me then!! I'm almost too old for the group. It ends at 50ish, and I'm beyond "ish". :)

    @annliz23 Thanks. I was going good for years, but a divorce, autoimmune disease, school, and 65 hour work weeks got me. Hoping to hit my stride again. I have already dropped 31 lbs prior to signing back up to MFP...hoping to find some good people and keep on keeping on!

    Hi,

    I am in my mid thirties trying to lose weight. While the gym is closed I am running on a track so I guess I'll start off by asking how do you suggest dealing with Shin Splints.

    Anyone can add me but I am really looking for people who will help me be accountable. I will return the favor.

    Gyms are open where I live but the cleanliness at my gym was sub-par prior to Covid. I cancelled my membership for now and will keep walking, jogging and hiking.

    Fortunately, all the world is a gym...at least until it gets cold.

    Hope your son is feeling better!!! Isn't it amazing how adaptable some kids are? My daughter has really taken this craziness so well, and we were pretty busy with fun activities before the rona hit. She is getting with her friends just about every day to play video games online, and has stayed happy just hanging out at home.

    We were supposed to be on our way up north this morning to a friend's cottage but my son decided to vomit overnight. Poor kid I suspect he hadna touch of food poisoning but don't want to take chances spreading around germs. Nor do I want to be 2 hours from home with a sick kid. He likes to give a running commentary as he's being sick. It's hard not to laugh but if you laugh he'll tell you off for laughing. I like my kid. Anyone have any fun stories to share since I'm trapped inside

    My son has a buddy he plays online with too. It's good they can adapt it's good qualities to learn

    This should be the last covid test I'll need to go visit my mom. They're requiring us to be tested so we don't create new outbreaks in seniors homes. They're already easing the triage somewhat only taking temps and such of those with symptoms. This Dr was all business. She walked in, swab at the ready, pulled my mask down and shoved it up there. Today I went earlier than last time and it took about 40 minutes total from arriving to walking out. Now I'm gonna clean the basement

    Hi everyone. :) I've been trying to do this weight loss alone and it's a struggle. Especially with metabolism slowing :(

    I'm 49 and looking to connect with some good people who understands the extra challenges we get with age.
