Yep the big 50 is coming up in 2016 and I would love to lose some weight...and continue to... starting in the new year so I am going to do the 12 week plans and join the round the world too. hope to see lots of company and lose some weight. Fifty, fit and fabulous will be my theme for 2016 got about 6 - 7 stones to lose but one day at a time, first target is 5% starting on the 4th Jan with the Monday Weigh ins.

  • 50, fit and fabulous! I love it!

    Keep us updated on your progress!

    Having posted this week I have found nothing but encouragement, kindness and motivation from the others using the site.

    I am sure everyone will be right behind you - your efforts, highs and lows.

    Come on! We can do it! ☺

  • Love you motto ❤

    Glad you're joining us on the world trip, it'll be so motivational and fun 😊

    And don't look at the total weight - set little goals that can be achieved easier 🏁

  • Thank you starting with 5% loss

  • Good luck :)

    Small maintainable changes and check your portion control and before you know it the lbs will start melting away.

  • Hi Pdm66,

    Great that you're starting on 4th January, and you've got some excellent targets and your 50th Birthday to work towards.

    2016 could definitely be your year, and you'll be 'fit and fabulous' and feeling good!

    Look forward to catching up with you in the Monday weigh-in.

    Lowcal :-)

  • Hiya, I have just turned 50....it was scary hitting it lol!!!! Good luck with your new weight loss journey, Im also down for this round the world challenge....will be a challenge since Im good at making excuses for going to the gym....but we can do this :-)

  • 50, fit and fabulous sounds like a great theme for 2016 pdm and that positive attitude of yours is going to see you winging your way toward your goal at a rate of knots :)

    I'm going to borrow your idea and use 2016 as prep time for my super, sexy and slim 60th in 2017 :)

  • You go girl as he national lottery advert said 'this girl can'

  • 50 was my trigger ( as was 40) but this time I lost it and kept it off well for 2 years so far good luck!

  • Well done you, how did you do it and how my h did you lose?

  • Will pm you my before and after from 2013 14st 7 to around 11st diet and mega exercise

  • Look forward to seeing them. did you stick to the 12 week NHS plan?

  • Hi, I am 50 in 2016 ( 1966 was a good year lol) and I too need to get the weight off. Have done lots of diets and managed to get the weight off but stress has meant that I have piled on about 4 stone. I am so not going to be fat and fifty! Will be joining the Monday weigh in (with eyes shut at first after Christmas holiday away). I wish everyone success on their journey and hope to be making progress with you all this coming year.

    Ever hopeful.

  • Excellent news, mine is in 8 weeks time so not long but hope to lose at lease 10lbs in that time and spend the rest of 2016 making some good habits and decisions. We can do it. I know it is easier said than done but hey you know what they say, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    We can do it and have a happy new year everyone.
