Members profiles:
24 year old graduate student- whose risks include the sort of sedentary lifestyle that graduate school often affords. Although I have lost 100 pounds (using a 12 step program) and hope to lose 75 more. As a person of color, its important for me to acknowledge how overeating and harmful health-behaviors are often cultural artifacts as well as social indicators. I am a clothes horse and look forward to the many clothing opportuities whichwill arise out of weight loss.

Im a 32yr old M, married with kids. I used to be a jock in highschool, played college soccer, but after marriage and the kids came the weight. Ive done WW points before and had success, but both times I did it within a year or 2 Id gained it all back. Most recently I started WW on July 5, 2004. I was 247lb. I was very, very strict with my diet and forced myself to exercise, which I hadnt done in years. As the weeks went by the weight dropped quick.But there was a catch...I was going to work then going to the gym right after for 2hrs a day, 6 days a week. It wasnt reasonable to keep that kind of routine up. After 4 months I went from 247lb (6'1") to 192lb. Then it all fell apart and I fell back into all the old habits. I kept thinking I could get a handle on it but almost 2 yrs to the date that I was 192lb I found myself at 247.0 again! I was ashamed and disgusted. So, Im starting over.

For years I was the manager of a couple of Curves locations. I was overweight, but in very good shape since I worked out 3-5 times per day. When I quit that job and went back to the Internet world, the combination of sitting all day, not working out any longer, and the undiagnosed Thyroid disease caused me to balloon up from 180 to 212 within a year. (Of course, I got married in this time *eyeroll* ) After some searious health stuff went on and they realized that it was from a Thyroid issue, I got on meds. I figured I'd lose the weight right away. (In my dream world weight loss is easy and done quickly... darn it!) It didn't... my cholesterol was terrible, my liver was still not functioning correctly, and I was tired all the time. I decided to try Weight Watchers again, only I don't have the time to go to meetings (I have a 17 year old and a job that's very time consuming). In the last 10 weeks I went from 212 to 183.5. :) Makes me happy. I believe that my goal of 160 is a doable goal. I don't believe I'll ever be some little size 4... (or a double 0 like me daughter - sheesh.. just wanna bap her skinny butt sometimes! hehe)
