Other Info: I am 51 and need to lose 100 pounds. I have high blood pressure and am at risk for a heart attack and stroke - neither of which I want! I am looking for support and encouragement.

Members profiles:
I tipped the scales at 385 pounds in 2005. Due to multiple health problems, I was strongly encouraged by my physician to undergo a gastric bypass. Now it is 2006, and my weight is 281pounds. My multiple health problems are gone, but, I would like to lose an additional 151 pounds. I am 5'5". So, although I am able to be more active, I have hovered at this weight for some months now. I have always been rather sedentary. I am more active now than I was at 385. I live in a town with a population of 300. I am not working at this time. My best friend moved in with me 7 years ago with four children. Her half of the income is much more than my half, and by my assuming the daily responsibility of child rearing, we actually save a tremendous amount of money, even without my paycheck. I am a Registered Nurse, specializing in Hospice care. I do miss the interaction, but in reality, my job was more emotionally active than physically.

I am 28 years old and a wife and mother. I work full-time for a real estate company and will go back to school in January part-time. I am driven and determined - I love to stay busy. I am also quite crafty - I love to sew and knit, to name a few.

I am 44 years old, living in an empty nest with my diabetic husband and we are both overweight but I am MUCH FATTER than him and am SICK of it. I do not like the changes it has brought into my life. I was never fat in my life until I sailed past 35 and then all at once it seemed like all hell broke loose! I work on computer so am on my big ol' butt all day long and half the night too. (SIGH)

33yr old male, been overweight a long time. I need to be healthy! And I have no problem asking for help...
