40+ Friends Starting Fresh 2021

I have quite a bit of weight to lose. It would be nice to connect with others my age who are serious about a life change. Let's make 2021 better than 2020!

    Hi All , I'm Bronwyn in Australia 56 yrs young 😉 I have 9-10 kgs ( 20lbs ) to lose.Tone up and hopefully keep off ! I mainly walk as I do have joint problems but don't want that to stop me moving, here's to staying focused & motivated.
    I'd love to join you and stay accountable.

    I’m 43 and have lost 33 pounds and have about 16 to go. I’ve been on a plateau for a bit. The same three pounds up and down. I’d really love to get in the 140’s. I would love to have like minded friends to help keep me motivated.

    I’m in the UK - 49 with 20 lbs still to lose (15 down this year from my heaviest). Slow and steady through small changes and habits is my plan...
