    Hi all! I'll be 41 this weekend - eek, the age is really starting to hit me. I'm been on mfp in the past and it worked out well and then things went down hill a few years ago and in this last year especially I ended up ballooning up. So haven't been this heavy since having my kids - have about 70 lbs to lose (ugh...that's depressing to say). I'm a mom of twins, work full-time, and attempting to find balance in life as well as trying to find my body again lol. Feel free to add me - can always use some motivation partners!

    Welcome all new middle agers!!

    It's a new season for us...whether you're in the northern hemisphere and it's the glorious autumn season or the southern and it's spring. What are you looking forward to for this upcoming season

    Planning some fall camping and fishing. Stupid work keeps interfering with plans for fun activities! AARRGGHH! Hoping the fires die down and the smoke clears out soon.

    Oh no stay safe with this fires. It's crazy. I've friends in Portland and they've been posting on Facebook that their air filters for their house can't keep up with the smokey air. We did a drive up the coast last year, it's sad to think some of the stuff we saw could be gone

    Thanks for the kind words, Ali. I talked to my fishing partner yesterday - we are going to monitor the situation and alter plans as needed. We're looking at 6 weeks from now. Things could be all clear by then.

    50 here. 1 lb away from my first goal weight. I figure another 10lb loss over the winter will be my ultimate goal. Feel free to add.

    I’m turning 40 in October and my bro is throwing me a 40 year old birthday party. It’s been about 6 to 7 years since I’ve been on MFP and when I was on it I lost 60 pounds needless to say my healthy habits didn’t stick and I’m up to 210 would like to be back to 180 or 175 as my goal. Looking for friends and support it always helps to have accountability peeps thanks

    Happy almost birthday month. 40 isn't that bad at all. I think covid lockdown stole lots of our healthy habits sadly. Good luck

    Anyone have any good keto friendly dessert recipes? My brother in law is a keto convert and I've been tasked to make him a treat.

    Great to find people my age, I am 45 and although I have used the site before I never became a part of the community. Fitness is a huge part of my life from weight training to distance running and most in between. It would be great to discuss workout plans, nutrition and the ever important motivation. Feel free to add me as a friend.

    Best bit of my week...hanging out with my son on a Friday afternoon. (Yes...I'm an old dad! 🙄)

    Happy Friday everyone.

    Sounds like a perfect afternoon. He's adorable, and getting so big. Don't blink...

    Amen to that 😔❤️

    Maybe it’s just because I’m overworked but what does TCB mean? Lol.

    Happy weekend!!!! Anyone got any plans? I suspect we're heading for another lockdown so I guess I better start hoarding toilet paper, flour and yeast! 😂🤣
