So I have about 14 1/2 weeks from tomorrow until my 40th bday..
I have pcos. So Its never been easy to lose weigh. I have to eat very little and work out very hard to lose weight..

Usually between January and July I lost about 25 pounds. go on vacation enjoy summer. and between aug and end of dec I gain 1/2 of it back ..

Many reasons why. but we wont get into all of that.

I have a total of 48 pounds to lose.. I will be happy with at least 1/2 of that gone before my birthday..
Tomorrow IM starting special K diet.. just because I am not ready to go back on Low carb now. and I need to get some structure back into my life..
Hoping by the end of february to buy a Elpicial*sp* waiting on a check.
but between now and then. Going to start doing some squats and crunchs..
and something cardio..

I have to be careful thou. I also have a bad back.. all my life.

So i am wondering if 40.. is going to make losing weight even harder?
if thats possible! lol..

Has a lot of people had problems turning 40?

It's harder for a variety of reasons to lose weight when you're 40 compared to when you're 20 or 30, but it's definitely do-able, keep that in the front of your mind.

One of the big pluses, you have the benefits of experience, you know what has been successful for you in the past and what hasn't.

best of luck to you :sunny:
