I am 41 ... Somewhere between 8 - 18 pounds from goal (still deciding to be somewhere between 125 and 135).

Life is good today. Went to a car show with my little MINI and took Best in Class. My youngest son (8) came with me & we had a nice day together. My husband was able to meet up with us right before the awards were given so he was able to share in that with us. Tonight we are planning on pizza (one slice for me!) and a movie. Can life get any better???

I am 43. I have three kids 17, 15 and 12 and have been married for 21 years this November. I am hoping to have the forties be the best decade ever.

The BEST is yet to come :). I've been married 20 years this October. I have an 18 yr old son, and 13 yr old daughter. I'm hoping by next October to be able to actually fit back into my wedding dress, that would feel SO awesome!

Hey,

I am on the cusp of 40 ... next April and although I am dreading it in one way, I have a feeling that it will be the best decade of my life... also hoping to be near my goal weight by then to so I can get a 'lil black number to wear...lol!

45 +a month +a day! And LOVING my 40s. I was dreading turning 40 more than I can say... I'd been single for 11 1/2 years, was struggling with money and single motherhood, was fat and miserable and lonely, and the only goal I'd reached that I'd hoped to by then was buying my own house.

But, that's the year I met my hubby (in person, we'd known each other online for 3-4 years before that), and suddenly 40 was fabulous, and it turned out to be a great year, and has been ever since then! I have a 21-year old son who's still at home trying to figure out what to do with his life but is a great kid, and two awesome stepkids who are 10 and 13 (and who we only have part-time, which makes it even greater LOL). I'm 22 lbs. away from my initial long-time weight loss goal, although I think I'll probably go for another 12 or so after that. I'm doing the Couch-to-5K program and last Saturday, ran 20 minutes straight for the first time EVER in my ENTIRE life, and plan to do 25 tomorrow.

Biggest thing about the 40s, especially now that I'm happy with where I am in life, is that finally we get to forget about looking at ourselves as we think others see us (in how we look, work, act, etc.) and just enjoy WHO we are, for what we are, and be happy with that and damn what anyone else thinks. There's a freedom that comes in this decade that's so liberating! There are lots of things I'd do differently if I got a do-over, but nothing that would change where I am today. The 40's rock. :)

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
