    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Your most recent updates have taken the weight of so many "loose-skin-worries" from my shoulders. And your enthusiasm and fitness is awe-inspiring - and even more "maybe I can do this" inspiring!

    I just reread this thread. It has always been inspiring to me, so I wanted to make sure others saw it as well. Cheers to springlering62...I really appreciate what you bring to MFP.

    "I noticed something looked odd about my shadow while I was holding a plank. I stared at it for a bit, until I realized, my shadow had guns, baby."

    I love your inspiring posts and photos (esp. those yoga poses--wow) but the above quote was my favorite thing I've ever read on MFP. Thanks for the inspiration and the honest talk. The tunnel metaphor was an apt one. I've always feared maintenance, but I'll keep reading your and others' experiences to know what to expect when I arrive in the next 30 lbs.

    @springerling62. You give all of us older women hope that we can build muscle. Although I am 10 years older than you, (I think, assuming the 62 at the end of your name is the year you were born), I am hoping to build back some of the muscle I have lost over decades of yo-yo dieting with no strength training and of course age. I started lifting weights about 6 months ago, but had to restart after some illness earlier this year. It's so nice to hear how successful you've been, and that all the cardio you do has not hampered you. I don't do as much as you do but I do quite a bit of cardio especially in the summer. I love it, so I don't plan on cutting back on that. Can I ask how much weight training you do a week, and for how long your sessions are? Not that I am going to increase mine anytime soon, but just interested. Currently I'm trying to work back up to 3 times a week for 45 to 60 minutes. I am also trying to prevent any worsening of my osteopenia by including weight training in my routine.

    Congratulations on your accomplishment! You look fabulous and are proof that you can lose weight at any age. Being "older" should not inhibit anyone from the rewarding process.

    One correction: Under Armour didn't produce MFP. They acquired MFP from the original creators in 2015, to the tune of $475 million and added paid tiers. Then Under Armour quietly sold MFP to Francisco Partners in 2020, for $345 million.

    The original creators were two enterprising young men who founded MFP in 2005, who vowed it would always remain a free service.
