    I'll be 58 in mid-September.

    I joined MFP on July 22, 2011. It's been slow going, but I'm getting there! I want to be slim, fit and super healthy when I begin Plan B (aka FREEDOM) come January 2017 -- spreading my wings!

    I'm thankful to be blessed with good health despite the weight.

    Sending out some positive energy,

    I'll be turning 60 next month. I've been losing and gaining the same 15 pounds most of my adult life. I do find that it is harder to lose it, and easier to gain it the older I get. One of my problems is that I really hate to exercise. I like to walk and to garden, but it has been so hot here that its been challenging to do those things. I'd love to find some supportive friends here.

    Hitting 54 next month. This site is awesome. Tried Weight Watchers but so expensive and points just didn't give me enough information. Found out I'm pre-diabetic and am determined not to have to take meds. Love seeing what my carb and sugar intake is. My problem is I can only stick with something for two weeks and then I give up. Not going to this time and need friends to make me accountable. Been spending lots of time at the pool. Great exercise!!

    Funny, as WE age, OLDER becomes, well, OLDER!

    As for me, I turned 53 in April, but feel better and younger than I have in decades.

    Always up for more friends here on MFP, and looking for local friends to walk/hike/?? together!

    I'll be 45 this year, so I consider myself closer to 'old' :) Although, I have a saying: "The soul never ages, it's just this outer shell". !! I am only on day 3 as far as MFP goes, I'm ready for an exciting journey.

    Guess I am the oldest one in here. I am 68. Sounds old, but don't really feel that old. Hoping I do as well as my mother. She is 95 and still healthy and active
