Came down from the Mtn to introduce myself... ;-)
I'm so very happy to have found this 40's group, it's just what I need. My name is Jen, I'm from Northern California, am a housewife for the time being (home a lot) up in the mtns, (thus my user name Hermit ;-) ....
A little bit about me : I am 45, in somewhat of a stifling mid-life situation, fortunately without depression this time around. I am kind of grumpy a lot of the time, mostly because I feel like I'm in a straightjacket from the fat that's packing *back* on (I lost 20 pounds last summer, gained 10 back) but am wholeheartedly now trying to get back in focus to lose 40 pounds to my ultimate goal.
From here, I guess I will mull over all the forums and fun places to go on this web site. I'm hopeful and looking forward from here....
