Hi, I am 46, new to this, and loving it. I've changed my life, lost 5 1/2 stone in weight. I gave up a £40,000+ job to follow a career in performing after having encouraged kids to do it for a decade and half. I'm not having a mid life crisis, I'm just learning to seize the moment and follow my dreams so that I don't have a life of regrets. I don't have the 'perfect' model looks or body, but I don't care I now have the confidence to go for things like this for the first time in my life.
