I'm a stay at home mom to two children ages 6 years and 2 1/2 years. I am happily married to my husband for over 7 years now. I love working with children, but do miss adult conversations and support.

I am a 53 yr. old retired educator. I am a mother of three adult children and a grandmother of one little girl. I want to take better care of myself so that I will be around to spend as much time with my family as possible.

I am a male, 33 and married. I live in Hoboken and have a 45-90 min commute each way to work. On top of that I work long hours in part due to my job, in part because I am a workoholic). I am also enrolled in an executive masters program that meets once a week (3:30pm to 9:30pm) and a couple of saturdays each semester. I have stuff to do for the class almost every day, and when not at the office find myself VPNing to the office to try to keep up with work. I work for a small company where a few of us have to keep an eye on everything even though we do not get the returns we deserve, while others just do their 9to5 and go home. I was slightly overweight all of my life but always very active. In ES, MS HS & College i played sports several times a week but now find myself just going to the gym every now and then. My eating habits are horrible. I do not snack or eat junk food; but i do not either like vegetables (other than the bad ones - potatoes, tomatoes, corn, etc). I must emphasize that I realy do not like them at all, and when i force myself to eat them it takes me a lot of effort and i give up quickly. I am what you would call a meat & potatoes guy. I started gaining weight after graduating from college in 1998 (specially after my parents nasty divorce in 2000) and have not stop since. I have problems with anxiety and stress. I place emphasis on responsibilities over rights for myself but I am usualy easy on others. I feel responsible for everithing i am involved in, and feel that if there is something i can do to improve a situation, correct a mistake/problem or help a friend I should do it. I am anal on geting things right and being correct which takes me loats of efforts to keep up and stress. My wife also wants to loose some weight, but she just has to loose a few lbs. I love her very much, but we drive each other insane too often. Lately (in the past 3 or 4 years) i have been having problems sleeping - mainly due to all the work I have to di (school & work). But many times i find myself wasting my nights watching TV or surfing the web while worrying about the work/class work I should be finishing. Today i saw a segment on technow TV @ 1:30 am talking about this site and decided to give it a try (I have failed every time, but do not get tired of keep trying - eventually I will succeed).
