I'm 51... my 17 year old daughter and her friends seem to think I'm cool. I also think my daughter is cool - we hang together quite a bit, go to concerts and such. (We actually went on a double date due to some unlikely extenuating circumstances.... I don't recommend this!) We somehow got past the "Daaad, you're embarrassing me!" stage quickly.

I'm re-single, as of a couple of years ago, and I like to go out dancing at various clubs in my area (Venice and Marina del Rey CA) with the rest of the "cool kids", regardless of their ages... and I'm certainly not the oldest of the folks I see out and about :-) Nice feature of living in this particular part of LA. I'm frequently asked to dance by "age inappropriate" women, who seem to think I might be cool. Guess I've fooled them! But it's nice to be asked, I must admit. (NSV!)

The number of posts in the other thread was daunting! So I will join you here.

Me: 44 years old, trying to get back to the weight I was in my mid 30s, before pregnancy and aging got the better of me. 5'9", at my heaviest I was about 85 kilos (187 pounds) now 72 kilos (157 pounds). Have lost the past five kilos on MFP

My reason is not just vanity, but also to try and slow down the inevitable bone density and circulation issues we all face eventually. My mum is living with chronic heart failure - and I don't really want that to be me in 30 years.

Only four kilos left!

Look forward to getting to "know" you all.

Welcome everyone!

This is just a place to hang out, tell us what you're doing to improve your fitness/diet....basically to share thoughts about all SORTS of things that are on the minds of the "over 40" folks!

I want to join the cool club!! However unlike a PP, my 17 YO daughter does NOT think I'm cool!! Lol

Love hanging out with over 40 cool kids!
I am 47 and new to MFP, well joined some time ago and decided to get serious this week.
My 27 and 26 year old think I'm cool but my 19 year old isn't convinced yet.
I do have 3 grandchildren and I am pretty sure they think I'm the coolest and I have to say that is the best feeling in the world. LOL!

Cool is just a state of mind!

45 yr old nerdess here. Started to walk and work with hand weights/resistance bands in August after many years of doing Mostly Nothing. Getting chiropractic and massage to sustain the work and feeling better than usual. Down a pants size and 10 lbs as of last week; I try not to weigh in too often. Taking lots of vits/supplements as well. I have a lot of health/skeletal issues so this is the first time in a while I've been able to get momentum going. It's good to feel myself getting stronger again.

I may or may not be cool, but here I am anyway~

I'm 44, and my kid is cool. Last year, I became a first-time mom at 43 (the old-fashioned way). We think it's pretty cool. Those who are grandparents in your 40s -- any advice for someone just starting out?

Need to drop more than a few to gain any advantage I can keeping up with my kiddo and to be around as long as possible for him.

checking in so I don't lose this for another few more months :)

I've been real busy of late and haven't tracked for the last couple of days, though eating fairly well, but also not getting time for workouts.
