    Happy Birthday! I turn 49 in two months and I have the same goal - to be a fit by the time I turn 5-0. I had the same goal for turning forty, but this time I will do it! No more excuses. :-)

    Hooray! VERY EXCITING.
You have the right idea.
I WISH my Sister who is turning 50 y/o this year talked as you do.
I think of getting older as FINE WINE...just getting BETTER WITH AGE!

    Turning 50 isn't so bad. I did it a couple of years back. I lost about 40 pounds just before turning 40, and vowed to keep it off forever. Then spent the next 8 years putting it and more back on (diet and medical issues). At my highest iwas 220, but am now in the 180's. I feel and look better and will continue to lose, because of a lifestyle change and not a "diet". Congrats to you, and good luck on your journey.
