Members profiles:
I am 53 years old and a mom of three great kids. I met my goal a few years ago when I first joined PT but then gained it all back and then some. I don't like how I feel and want my old clothes back so time to do it!

I turned 50 in August of 2008. I'm 5'3". After losing a friend to breast cancer, I woke up and realized that I needed to take better care of myself. I worked very hard through all of 2009 and lost 25 pounds. I also inspired my husband (married 30 years) and youngest son to join me and they have lost weight and started healthier eating and exercise habits. All 3 of my kids are grown and gone. My oldest is married and had his first child July 2015, another is on the way. I love entertaining and playing card games with friends and family. My favorite season is summer, when I can be outside as much as possible. I like to garden, do pottery, walk, swim, go sight-seeing, travel and try new things.

I am 62 years old, a Christian, married, mother of 6 ages 37 to 22, and grandmother of 16.

I'm 53 and my body is a bit ravaged from injuries, but I still get out. I currently hold the title of "Riverboarding World Champion in Freestyle Surfing" for what it's worth. I want to be thinner to be more attractive and lighter/meaner in sports. Energy is better thanks to my naturopath and the corrected thyroid dosage.
