Hi there,
I've gained 80 lbs over the years and now I've turned 50 and I need to lose all the excess weight. Feel free to add ne if you are in need of encouragement and are a person who can be encouraging in return. Love and light! πŸ’‹πŸ™

    Hi kbird! Good for you for starting, and for asking and offering encouragement! I wish you the best of luck. I'm 70 now and it's hard to lose weight at that age, especially with the Covid restrictions that keep us from going out with friends to do things. I haven't given up yet though -- hope springs eternal! :)

    Welcome back! I just turned 50 too! You are on the right track. Log everything...join some community groups/challenges on MFP...and get moving... I have a long way to go... but I refuse to stop. ;D Best wishes! Hope we will both report successes often.
