    Hi all! I’ve been using MFP off and on for years but I’m new to the community. I need friends and teammates to help keep me accountable! About me - I’m 50 and have recently made the attitude switch that this journey is less about losing weight (although that’s def a plus) more an attempt to make my body strong and gain energy/avoid injuries as I’m getting older. For me, this means daily exercise (not a few days a week like I’ve done in the past). Exercise goals include daily resistance/weight training and cardio. Also working the meal plan side of this with concentration on macros (not so good with those yet), calories, IF. Would love to meet new people with the same goals/mindset as I continue on! Thanks for reading!

    @georgiapch70 I too have been off and on for years, more off than on lately and I can feel it. Everything is starting to hurt! Not all my goals are the same as yours, but I am trying to work out daily. I am walking on by breaks at work and have a goal of at least 30 minutes of exercise per night. Right now I am shooting for Cardio on MWF, arms on Tuesday, Legs on Thursday, Core on Saturday and then either yoga or a good stretching exercise on Sundays. I am meal planning and prepping for the week, but I am not currently doing macros. It stresses me out when I try to make sure everything fits perfectly and then I give up to easy. Right now, I am just trying to make sure i fit within my calorie goal. But I will add you and encourage you along your journey!

    I feel your pain…pun intended!! You are an organized inspiration! I wish I was there. I’m still at the “what time will I get my workout in today?” stage. I’ve yet to get a good routine going. You’re doing a great job and you should be super proud!

    Good morning everyone
    Softball at the age of 45 and never had played before on a league can be hurtful to ones body.
    Can't wait for next Tuesday game. 🤦‍♂️

    50 and rejoining after 5 years. Lost 85 lbs in 2016-2017 and have regained 75 of it. Having a hard time getting back at it mentally so needing some connections to focus and help rewire my food = comfort attitude. 🙂

    Thanks!

    @LucyMarks1752 I lost weight about the same time period and also gained it all back. I was so motivated then and have struggled since getting mentally back in that place. My life has changed a lot since then too. I'm taking small steps with my changes, but I am already feeling so much better!

    @mattphilly22 I feel you...we like to camp and have game nights with family. It's just so hard to eat healthy. But I am trying!

    It was always hard for me with kids because I would want to eat the same things I fed them. 😜Their metabolism was much higher!
