    I was just wondering how old we all are, partly because i am really nosey, but mainly to see if it really is harder to lose weight as we get older.....

    I am 42 (Yikes.. it looks bad when it's written down!)

    I was 50 last month! Fortunately I don't look it....so I'm told but as I'm waiting for a hip replacement I bl88dy feel it some days! And does it get harder to lose weight? Bl88dy right it does! I never really had a weight problem until I got sterilised at 35, then I put on a couple of stone which I lost quite easily when I put my mind to it. The last 5 years have been hard as I had to have an emergency hysterectomy following the discovery of an enormous tumour, then a year later I shattered my leg and needed 3 operations and 18 screws and plates. Then I suffered burn-out and had to to stop working....now a year later I've found out that I was born with congenital hip dysplasia and need two new hips!

    That's my story!

    Sandra-you really have been through it hun.. I am genuinely amazed at your sunny disposition! It takes a special type of person to cope with all that and still be happy.

    Hopefully a new you is emerging and you can put all the bad stuff behind you x x x

    Gemha.. It's lovely to have a goal in mind.. Make sure you celebrate your 30th well, and make it one to remember (for all the right reasons) :) x x

    Thx Su but I honestly believe that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger and a sense of humour is bloody useful when the going gets tough!

    That is true, and i think society has changed regarding age.. People aren't really even starting to be old till they are past 60, whereas a few years ago 50 was considered old....

    In my opinion you are only as old as you feel!! (that's not really good for me though cos on this diet i feel about 80---in bed by 10, can't eat solid food, weeing continuously!! lol)

    You are lucky to have a sister, especially one that you are so close to x x x

    I am 30. I got bigger and bigger when i met my hubby and went to college at 16. Weight was never an issue before that.

    Mark has always said he loves me for who I am and not what I look like. Now we have two very energetic young boys and I want to run around and be able to play at the park, without getting puffed out.

    But I think everyone here is amazing, we all have a story to tell. and it doesn't matter what age you are...It just makes you wiser :D If you really want to lose the weight you will, no matter what obstacles are put in our way.

    Go team LT
