I am looking forward to getting healthy with new friends who would like to join me. I have been down this road way to many times and really need to meet friends who want to keep each other accountable. I love to laugh and have a good time and would like to meet some great people close to my age who are willing to do more than just hit the like button. I love the lord, I am married with children and just love people and animals. My favorite thing to do is be a goofball and just laugh at nothing. YOU are never to old for that!!

    I've been trying to find small supportive group- most end up too big & I can't keep up with posts.
    I'm Jo from Durham in UK. Had to watch weight all the time but having been almost at my target, again, perimenopause hit & I could not loose weight. After another 10lb in lockdown enough is enough. I just need to get my eating controlled!! Do so well then drop the ball! I teach secondary school Science, been married 32 years, have 2 teenage girls & 2 cats.

    perimenopause ahhhhhGRRRRR!! yah I hear yah! My doctor told me I am a late bloomer! ugh I hope it doesn't effect me as well I am trying so hard again!! hope your doing well!

    I am also over 50, struggling to loose 20 pounds and gain friends. I too love to giggle! I have recently found that I like being outside walking, maybe jogging, and appreciating nature. Sunset walks are my favorite! Please add me as a friend if you want support too!

    Am I too old to join you? I am 69 but I think quite fit for my age. I have lost weight during lockdown because I decided to take the opportunity to lose weight as I couldn't go visiting people, or go to restaurants nor on vacation. So, to me it was an ideal time

    I have two dogs that keep me walking three times a day and I am very spasmodic with general exercise.

    I have been with MFP for 8 years and would love to lose about 6lbs. Elusive lbs I might add. Might not sound a lot, but trust me, it is. Most of my friends just hit the like button these days, but I always comment on their achievements. I do prattle on a bit too. Not always about weight or fitness, but if this doesn't bother anyone then please add me as a friend. Thank you

    I have been on this rollercoaster a few times. Have finally decided it is time to focus and persevere. I too love the Lord, love to laugh and would love to have a group to be accountable, to encourage and share the journey.

    Hi, I used to be around these here parts about 5 or 6 years ago regularly, but dropped off the face of the earth for the last five years (not really, just crazy life things). I just turned 50 and have a good 60-70 pounds to lose! I am a reading teacher in a private academic preschool, love to write, and I love food and wine a little too much! I will request you as friends (or you can friend me) :)
