Have been a member on SparkPeople since October 2012. Just turned 40 in April 2013. Trying to turn things around. I lost close to 30 pounds from October through February. Then hubby had an accident and was off work for six weeks with a compression fracture of his second lumbar. Between taking care of him and dealing with the busiest time of year for my at the office (I'm an accountant) I set myself and my goals on the back burner. He's back to work, my busy season officially ended last Friday and I am ready to put myself back on my list of priorities.

Looking forward to forging new friendships and help others when I can while I dust off my britches and climb back up in the saddle!

I will be hitting 40 in August! I've been calling myself 40 for basically most of my 39th year, and now I wish that I would have just enjoyed still being in my 30's....I guess I have 2 months left to appreciate it. I'm finding that fat sticks better as I get older. No longer can I just work out for 3 weeks and lose 10 pounds like when I was younger. It seems like fat hangs on to me for dear life now, and I have to work harder to see results. My husband (17 years happily married) and I started working out at the end of April. I ended up tearing my calf muscle (another age related issue!) while playing softball, and at that point I had only completed 2 days of the Insanity program. I am currently still waiting for the muscle to fully heal, but it doesn't stop me from getting cardio in on my elliptical and doing what I can with my Beachbody videos. We have a vacation planned in less than 5 weeks, so I will be in a swimsuit soon, I must workout like my life depends on it! I look forward to getting fit by 40, and I'm glad to have found this Team to join!

Your day is what you make it, so why not make it a GREAT one?

It is funny when I turned 38 I kept thinking I was turning 39 and was depressed. And even though I knew I was 38 I kept thinking I was 39, so when I turned 39 it felt like an extra year. Now 40 doesn't seem real to me, but I don't care except that I want to make my 40s even better than my 30s for health and fitness!

I'll be 40 on March 5, 2013.

I appreciate the idea but from 4 to 7 am is my only me time. I do prep as much as we can (lunch's backpacks) the night before, but if I want the gym exercise (and I do) I need to go this early. At 7 my day starts with the kids and it doesn't stop until bedtime at 8 pm. I know I'm not alone in how this happens. Kids get up, go to the bus stop, mom off to work. I pick up kids after work, then start HW and dinner, and after school activities. We are all usually in bed by 8. I like the cardio exercises to drop this weight and the gym has treadmills, ellipitcal, and rowers, I don't have any of those in the house. The cardio is what I belive I need the most right now on my weight loss journey and a simple push to get out the door.

Ah Lynn that is the challenge of the cold weather months. Any way of altering your schedule or doing something at home?
Another option would be to prepare EVERYTHING the night before, so literally all you have to do is dress and go!

Hello all, I'll be 40xx something in January. Very recently seperated with two elementary age school kids. Got into exercising and watching what I eat this year. Hoping to have some other motivation besides myself. During the summer I didn't need to much was easy to get up at 4am and to the gym by 5. But, the cold weather is making getting out the door in the morning difficult to exercise.

Hi, all! I recently turned 40 (in October, 2011) and am a divorced mother of three young men, 2 dogs and a cat. I am a student in Early Childhood Education and will be relocating from NYC to Mount Pocono to pursue my bachelor's at ESU. I'd like to lose 30 pounds and get back into working out on a regular basis. I started the Couch25K program and never finished it so I'd love to finish it and the Bridge210K as well. Hoping to get some motivation and community on this team. :)

I look forward to losing with all of you and hope to inspire and be inspired.

Hi! I will be 40 on November 6, 2012...So just over 6 months. Our youngest child just turned one in February. I have been struggling with gaining weight over the last year (even though I am nursing). I have been rather depressed and not feeling myself so I have turned to my old habits of stuffing my feelings down with food. emoticon
I am starting to feel more myself most days and I am ready to start taking great care of myself again!!!
I am looking forward to being a part of this team!

Lisa

I will be 40 on July 4th and will have been divorced for 6 years in November. I'm working really hard to lose the 25 or so pounds that I have been fighting since my baby girl was born, almost 14 years ago!! I'm determined to hit my birthday feeling good about my body and my health! emoticon
Hoping to make some connections here to help me meet my goals, and hopefully I can help others do the same. emoticon

Hi, I turned 40 on Jan 5th. I had a fantastic day because my husband threw a surprise party for me, the first party I have had EVER. Never even had one as a child and he pulled out all the stops! After all that partying now the serious business comes in of trying to get fit and healthy in my (gulp) 40s!!
Hoping 2012 will be the year I finally get a grip on my health issues.

I'm turning 40 on February 27th and very excited about it!
Hubby booked a vacation to Mexico so I'll be celebrating on the beach!
Now I just have to lose these 30 pounds that I have been holding on to for the last few years.
I usually don't post, but maybe if I become more accountable, I won't let my cheats last 3 days!!

Hi there. Getting back onto spark for the new year. I turned 40 on 11-11-11 and had decided to finally get in shape this year. So my bucket list for 40 was to run the Chicago 1/2 marathon in sept on 9/11. I had never run before, but with support from two moms in my neighborhood we did it. Now I'm down to loose the last 10 lbs and am determined to do it this next year. Glad to be fab and 40.

I will be 40 February 19 and I'm ready to get the last of this weight off. I want to be that really sex and confident 40 year old. You know the one that everyone googles at saying, "She can't really be that old, can she."

welcome to the team. 40 is great in my opinion. The way I have always thought is how I can finally live (I can have my opinions and don't need approval for them, I don't need to be everyones friend and they dont need to be mine, it's all good to be me and if someone doesn't like it oh well they don't have to). To me 40 is about being me wholly and truly me!

Women are like dragon flies.We spend our lives waiting to become something beautiful only to realize (so late in life) that we already are.

For me, I think that the idea of 40 what a lot harder than actually turning 40. Most people don't believe me when I say I am anyway... It's just another day, another dollar...

I'll turn 40 in October. I'll be honest and admit that it bothers me. It's been a tough year knowing that the 30's are almost behind me! I decided earlier this year to get my act together and drop the extra weight before the big day. I'm half way there and have about 18 more pounds to drop. I'm glad I found this forum because I'm gonna need the support!

emoticon to the team Kim! I'm sorry you are having such a rough time with your weight and motivation. I will turn 40 in October and although I am not 'thrilled' by the number 40, I am trying to remember that it is more about how I feel than what my age is. Stick with us on this team and you will reach your goals in no time! emoticon

Hello! I will be turning 40 this August. I have been very emotional over turning 40(?) .
This year has been really bad for me with gaining 35lbs, I had lost approx. 50lbs last year and then went into a small bit of depression over turning 40 and my only child just graduated from high school. I am very happy for her but depressed on how fast time goes by.
So I FINALLY told myself this is enough and I got my motivation back.
I just received Turbo Fire in the mail, 2 weeks ago I started the same healthy eating as I was last year & have joined some ladies on the beach 2x a week for yoga and Zumba classes.
I am just praying that I can keep this motivation and succeed in my goals.
This is hard for me, I had never had a weight problem until 2002 when I had to have a complete hysterectomy, after the surgery I had gained approx.25lbs and now that I am just about to turn 40 I have gained an additional25lbs.
Sorry for the long reply to a simple question, I guess I just needed to get this off my chest.LOL Thanks for all your support.

June 3, 2011 - I am 40.

I am not worried about it.. but i admit i would like to be another 30-40 lbs lighter... (out of the 100+ i have to lose)...

I am aria, i deal with fibromyalgia and chronic myofascial pain, so there are good days, and there are bad days... I am low on exercise.. but i am still trying to lose weight! Trying to make sure i get moving, and watch what i eat. I am working on some basic goals:
1. Logging in Daily
2. Posting in each of my groups daily
3. Blog at least once a week
4. Watch what i eat (and not watch it go into my mouth!)
5. Make sure i hug, and acknowledge my son's good behavior once a day.
6. Treat me well and pamper me at least once a week.. emoticon (making me queen of the day)
7. Cook Healthy food for my family.
8. Limit my soda and kool aide intake
9. Drink my 12 glasses of water a day
10. Make someone else smile, daily and if i can't do it daily.. do it weekly!

:) Hope to get to know you soon!

I'm forty on December 30. The prospect didn't bug me last year, but truth be told it's starting to bug me now... I think a lot of it depends on what else is happening to me at the time I'm thinking about it. I guess the trick is to make sure the rest of my life is happy and fulfilling so the flow-on effect for my birthday is likewise positive. That's the theory I'm working on at the moment, anyway!

I am really fighting with my weight.

I'll be 40 on Feb 5th and hope to be in shape by then.

I've been exercising like a mad woman and eating healthier. It is frustrating not to see better results.

I stopped dieting 4 days ago and have gained 2 pounds. I better get back to dieting.

I will be 40 on February 16...tomorrow. I thought I'd join this team and see what it is all about and how I can contribute as well as what I can learn. I'm happily divorced but have no children. I do have one cat... Sammy who is just 2 now. I don't work for medical reasons but I do volunteer and do dozens of crafts and hobbies.
I hope to make friends with many of you and see how we can encourage each other on our healthy lifestyle journey.

I turned 40 last June and honestly I feel great! I'm definitely heavier than I need to be but inside I feel 21! I ran a 15K when I was 28 and am running it again this month! I realize how much more work it is when I'm 40 and 25 lbs heavier!!! But this too shall pass... emoticon

I turned 40 last September (9/8). It was actually a really great day. I'm happy to be in my 40's; I feel more comfortable in my own skin than ever before!

Thank you for asking.

On February 23 I'll be 43 years old.

I'm trying to deal with the grey hair and wrinkles. I still can't believe I'm a candidate for bifocals!

Hi, everyone. I'll be 40 on May 10th. Trying to wrap my brain around it and look at it as positive.
Live in the moment. Not the past or future. That's a hard one.
