I started a new community called "Moms over 40 trying to get fit and healthy" . I want to share ideas and experiences how to slow down aging....and stay healthy. Being over 40, it is more difficult to lose the "muffin top", you get aches or pains for no reason, you loose energy, etc. I want to be in my 70s still running around instead of being in the nursing home. Please come and join the community!

I started eating healthier in April and have lost 27 lbs so far..life is too short, taking off the extra weight makes me feel better and more confident. It's hard, but well worth it. I will be 41 next Sunday...ugghh

I'm turning 49 August 7th and feel I found "the magic bullet". Between weight gain, night sweats, mood swings, aches and pains--you name it, I had it! If anyone would like to know my secret in releasing 43 lbs and 54 inches (14 lbs and 10 1/2 inches in the first 11 days!), drop me a line! I am a new me!!! :)

All you women over 40! Another thing that keeps us fat especially in the middle is a hormanal imbalance. Read the book "From Hormone Hell to Hormone Well" go see a doctor who treats with human identical hormones and get balanced! Your normal GYN won't help you but there are doctors who will. IT WORKS!

I so agree!!!! I took up running at age 44 and ran my first half-marathon! Im now 46 and still running. I tell my scoffers that I will run till my knees pop off but I'm not going to be 60 years old and too frail to get off the couch and enjoy life!!! When I began running I was close to 190lbs. Everything hurt, i sure wasn't pretty in that pair of shorts running down the road with everything flopping, but I stuck with it and today I am 150 and still struggling to get that last 10 off!

There is a garment called "Body Magic" that will reshape, slender appearance, give the appearance of lipo transformation without surgery. It is designed to lift and flatten the stomach and abdomen muscles; help support the lower and upper back and corrects your posture. Plus they have products for men. Contact me for further information. Janet - sun04shine@msn.com

I had this leg pain for 2-3 years. I tried everything...went to the doctors, chiropractic, massage, taking fish oil, but nothing worked. My massage therapist told me that I'm uneven and all I need is to walk 30 min a day. So I started to walk/run in January, and it was hard at the beginning, but now my pain is gone. I think I just needed to get stronger muscles. So I think exercising really helps. As you get old you lose muscles and gain fat....even the face muscles become saggy. I'm also trying this face exercising/massage to see if it will help.

I've been trying to lose my extra weight for the past 6 years! I was superfit in my youth and never would have believed I would be this unfit and overweight. I love exercising so much, but have just had too many things to do that involved sitting down, or never being able to leave the house for me, taking the kds to sports, working late. I really need help - any tips or ideas would be great.

This is a great idea. I have to work so much harder and eat less just to maintain, and not gain more than the five pounds I've gained since turning 40. I've all but given up on losing those 5 pounds. I've reached the point where I really just want to be healthy and i do work at that.

I'm with you!!! Please share your ideas on how I can get back to the weight I was before I had my 2 yr old ... I wasn't skinny then but I was almost 50 pounds less than I am now!! I sure would like some support from other mms with the same struggle...
