Hi, I'm new-ish to spark people and was poking around for a team I could relate to (or relate to me?). I'm 41 and have a 2 yo daughter. I also work full time and am struggling to get exercise back into my life. I have about 12 pounds to lose to get to pre-preggo weight and 10 more after that to wedding weight (married later in life too). looking forward to meeting you all.



Be the change that you want to see in the world.

Hi! My name is Anne, I am 40 and my little one is only a month old but soon enough she will be a toddler. I am here to get motivation to take off the weight and be a decent role model to an active child. I love being a mother at this age! I was the one that wore a T-shirt that said "Elderly Multi-Gravida and Proud Of It!" to the hospital to give birth.

Hi again everyone... it's nice to see that there are other "advanced maternal aged" women out there! : )

Boy, it sure is different chasing a toddler around 10 years after i chased the first one around! But for all the exhaustion, i'd have another if the Lord deemed it so.

Bless you all today!

Hello everyone. I'm a 40s mom with five still at home ranging from 11 to 4. The twins are turning 10 this year! WOW! When did that happen?!!! LOL!

We have some grown kids too with grand-babies of ours who are out on their own.

We homeschool and I work at home as a transcriptionist--among other hats.

Blessings to all! :)

I'm 46 with a two year old baby girl. Okay, so not so much a baby anymore. As adoptions go I'm one of the very lucky. I was in the delivery room and got to take her home from the hospital. It's been an amazing journey as a parent so far. My daughter's adoption was final 12/3/08. Yes, it took 27 months to dot the i's and cross the t's. My husband passed away in the middle of the process, so I was a little out to lunch and couldn't stay on top of my case worker to get things moving. Once I came out of my emoticon , things moved along quicker. My daughter is a delightful child. I got to welcome her into the world. That's the closest I've ever felt to God.

Hi

I'm 40 something with 4 kids, the youngest is 2 years old.

My goals are to develop and maintain healthy eating habits for the family and to start exercising on a regular basis.

Hi Brenda!

Sorry I missed your post! Welcome!

I'm 41 - had my boys at 37 and 39 (20 days before my 40th!). So they're 3 and 1 now.

Good luck with your goals! My first goal is to lose 25 pounds by November 30th (not sure I'll make it but I'm trying) - I really need to lose about 50 total to get to goal weight.

Welcome Brenda!!! Congrats on your lil guy! I'm 42 and have a lil girl 3.5 and a son 5. My older kids are 21, 17 and 15. It is harder to lose the older we get but NOT IMPOSSIBLE.

I joined this team too to connect with other older moms. Looks like we are so not alone being older moms! I love being an older mom, I am having a blast this 2nd time around, especially now that I am more fit! Best wishes to you and hope to get to know you better through journeying along together!

Welcome to the team! I was 36 and 38 when I had my two little hellions so I'm the young one of the crowd, but they're friendly here. I too can't imagine life without my youngest and he was unexpected (just before a divorce) too.

Hi, my name is Brenda. I am 44 and have a 3 year old son, Reese. I also have a son, Matt, 22 and a daughter, Tiffany, 25, from a previous marriage. Reese is the best surprise I ever got.I can't imagine live without him. But along with the surprise of being pregnant at 41, I also gained 44 lbs during pregnancy. Tough to lose at this point. This last year I have been finally trying to get it off but it would be great to have support from mother my age in the same position.
