I'm a 48 year old mother of 4 children. I have been married for 24 years this coming September. I teach elementary age students.

I'm a student, 20 years old, and former serious athlete. I'm looking to get back in shape after falling off the wagon last semester and gaining some weight while losing overall fitness.

I am 18 years old, and I am going to be a freshmen at the University of North Carolina. I currently weigh around 210; my current goal is to be around 150. I would like to lose 1 pound per week, but I know that will be tough, but I am sick and tired of being the size I am, because it holds me back emotionally and physically. So if you can't tell, I am READY to do this!

38 y/o female, upbeat, motivated. Ready to shed lbs that crept up over the last year or so. Want to feel comfortable in my skin again. Excited about getting started;-)

I'm so tired of looking in the mirror and all I see when I look at my profile is my gut and my butt sticking out. I want a flatter tummy and a smaller butt, for sure!!

43 mother of 3.

36 yo, single, professional sales rep. I sell to hospitals and get so depressed with the people who I have to work with. I feel like I am going to become like them, so I hide in food. I want to learn to feel my feelings without being afraid of them.

I'm 62, married, and...of all things...the owner of a gourmet chocolate shop! Always manage to duct tape closed the mouth of my sensible food voice and choose foods that do support a healthy life. Really do want to live longer and better.

I would like to connect, support and share with other on their weight loss journey. Your health is priortiy, without your health nothing esle is possible.

I'm on a health quest which includes weight loss and using the gym membership that I've been paying for! :)

I am a 34 year old single mother of two.. Trying to lose weight to be health and no inherit any of the Diabetes and High Blood pressure and things that run in the family..

The drug has evolved from a drug to help problems like hypertension, angina, and then impotence. Viagra is known as a blood flow booster and it has aided in helping men be able to create an erection by incr Intagra: Helping You Overcome Erectile Dysfunction

I am 52 years young. I have been married for 30 years. I have 3 grown children. My weight is something I have struggled with most of my life, although when I look at pictures I realize that I was actually a healthy weight in my younger years.

I am 56 and starting to see things change in my body and health and not all are good changes. I am post menopausal and unwilling to settle for anything but the best for this next season of my life. I am motivated and excited about the future.

I turned 48 on August 2nd, 2012. I have 4 children, 7, 11, 15 and 17. Plus a wonderful husband. I want to be at my ideal weight going into my 50's. I need to put myself first in order to be there long term for my kids.

I am a dancer that is trying to lose and keep off weight before I extensively get back into dance for the coming school year.

I am 18 years young from Minnesota, I have been over weight and out of shape my whole life. My family's life style and habits has partial blame, but mainly i blame myself for letting it get so bad.

I'm twenty-three years old and have been a work out enthusiast for the past three years, since my son was born. When I first started this process, I got into the best shape of my life almost immediately. It wasn't only about getting back to my pre-pregnancy size again, I also wanted to create great muscle definition. But after the first year, my body has been a yo-yo. I gain 5 lbs, then I lose it. I eat healthy, then I eat junk. I work out consistently, then I get a little lazy. I'm not here to be sickly skinny (I'm naturally thin anyway). I'm here to get into the best shape of my life and stay there! I'm tired of being so hard on myself, then letting myself down. I want to be 110% happy with myself by doing it the healthy way!

I am 53 years old. I have been married for 33 years and have two sons. One is 26 and the other 21. My older son is getting married in June. I have a full time job. Live (for the first time in my life) in a city. I can walk alot of places.

I enjoy running, biking, snowboarding... and playing with my dogs

I'm a divorced mother of two children. Prior to my divorce a year ago, I had lost 30 to 40 pounds and felt great about myself. I guess the stress of day-to-day life got to me....I gained it all back and possibly more. My family is concerned about the yo-yo effect that my weight takes. I just have to become more accountable for my actions and stop making excuses. Oh, how good it feels to say that, but it's also easier said than done.

35 mother of two young boys

I've been an ethical vegan for nearly 5yrs but I still struggle to make truly healthy food choices, and this is sadly reflected in my weight.

Single Mom of 3 (17yo boy, 9yo boy, 6yo girl). Work full time outside the home with a two hour roundtrip commute. I do isometrics in the car while sitting in traffic.

Two time Ironman triathlete, long distance open water swimmer (12 miles last Oct), mom of two (born 6/12 and 2/10), wife and full-time IT Consultant. Always been a little large, so need to implement better food habits.

I'm 46 married and have 2 children 18 and 16. I'm a stay at home mom

I was in excellent shape, able to run long distances, carry a 60 pound pack on my back and walk 8 miles per day, run 2 or more miles without taking a break. I weighed 155 pounds, solid muscle, at 5'8" and could bench press over 200 pounds for multiple reps. Then I got pregnant and all of that changed. Now I am a very unhealthy 265+ pound woman who has a hard time lifting her 50 pound son. I work nights and long hours, so finding time and support to work out has been difficult. I went from using the gym at least 2 hours per day every day two years ago to not being in a gym for over a year.

Married mom of three. I work full time and go to school 3/4 of the time. I am also the cub master for my middle child's cub scouts.

51, mother of 1 and 2 grandkids.

Almost 47 year old teacher, mother of 2 teens. I have always struggled with my weight and have never really eaten "normally." Exercise 7 days a week 2-3 hours a day and make up for it with lots of eating late at night. The result is 10 extra pounds and exhaustion.

I am a 29 year-old female living in Seattle. I am a transplant from the Midwest. I have a master's degree in American Art History and Material Culture. Next year I will be marrying my fiance in Italy {9/21/13}. I am currently wedding planning! I was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism - which finally explains my freezing cold hands and feet, fatigue, depression and absolute inability to lose weight! I started treatment in mid-July. I'm hoping to see some positive changes in the next few months!

47years. Have ms. Had gastric bypass 14yrs. Ago. Live in area with no community recreation Center. Married. Live with husband and 3dogs.

I've always been a chubby girl..and I am trying to put an end to that! I recently became a lisenced cosmetologist and I've decided that I want to live a healthier lifestyle and better myself. I joined a gym a week ago and I've been going everyday.. I dont know a lot about getting into shape or anything like that so any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I love exercise and sports and work out 5 days a week. My problem is overeating. If I could control my eating, I would lose weight. Right now I workout 5-6 days a week but am not losing any weight because I eat so much. I am an emotional eater. I overeat when I am happy, sad, anxious, angry, hurt and bored!

I'm a 25 year old woman from Liverpool in the UK suffering from PCOS and the related infertility. In a nutshell this is why I'm trying to lose weight; so that my husband of 3 years and I can finally start our family. With such an emotionally charged reason you'd think it would be "enough" but for whatever reason, be it emotional, lack of willpower, health related (they say those with PCOS do indeed find it more difficult to lose weight - I do not know if this is scientific fact but it could be one of the issues working against me) or whatever, I find myself two years down the line since I seriously started to give this thought and over those two years I've lost and re gained the same 30lb over and over again.

54 yr old woman with MS and diabetes.

I am 52 years old. I have one daughter still in college. I teach at a small inner-city school and work in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade inclusion classrooms. I have a dog who I am crazy about. I enjoy reading, hiking and spending time with my family and friends.

In 2011, after gaining almost 70 pounds through a year of depression, food was my answer to most things. One night in August, my girlfriend (who had started counting calories and working out at the gym like she lived there) told me that my body had become, "unappealing" and that "while she still loved me, I "needed to definitely do something about it." This was the first time my eyes were opened to the cop-out that I had given myself when things got hard. "Feeling sad? Eat something. Feeling like it was a hard week? Food sounds good." Over the past year I stuffed my feelings down with the food I stuffed my face with. At that point I realized, it surely was time for a change. Luckily, I had the most supportive girlfriend, and with her help, and a HUGE amount of self-determination, I found the weight falling off faster than it had for her, without much stress and without any workout routine. After 3 months I had lost around 35 pounds, with no end of weight-loss in sight. Then disaster struck. My girlfriend of 4 years, suddenly broke up with me. I lost the love of my life, along with any and ALL determination to lose weight, I mean, after all, who was I trying to impress now? Then came the past 7 months of my life, the better part of 2012. At first I gained 15-20 pounds, but as I slowly got over her, I stopped my self destruction. Since then, I've been stuck at that weight, hoping for some sort of motivation to begin again. This could be it. Let's find out.

41 mother of 6 two grandkids Health problems have kind of messed things up and I need to get back into control

I'm a teacher who's always been fit but unhealthy.

I am 30 years old and about 5 feet tall have been struggling with my weight gain for almost 2 years. The Dr. told me to lose 30 pounds. l have lost about 10 pounds so far, but it is a struggle I always fall back into my old habits so I am hoping this will help me in succeeding and changing my lifestyle.

I'm 27, I've been married 3 years. I don't have any kids. I'm a case manager so I spend my days at desk talking with people.

HI I'm Beth! I'm 16, a Christian, a sophomore in high school I love to sing and play piano and I hope to be a famous singer one day, I enjoy reading and writing and learning new things, I've been home schooled my whole life so I don't have very many friends but I have a big family so it doesn't bother me all that much, I've also been over weight my whole life and that does bother me. I've tried to lose weight many times, but always seemed to just give up, I don't wanna give up anymore I wanna follow through, lose the weight and finally have some confidence and self esteem!!

I love teaching.


I got married in March of 2012. This is my 2nd marriage. Bryan is my best friend and the best husband ever. He is my biggest supporter. I never had any children. I love life and always happy when my feet hit the ground every morning Praising my sweet Jesus for giving me one more day. I am full of life and love lots of humor!

I love music, improv comedy, craft beer, cooking, and hiking. I'm 23.

I have metaphysical and spiritual interests. I like to to write in my spare time and TV is a guilty pleasure.

I am 46 nearly 47 and since March have started running to complete the marathon next year in Brighton I was 3 stone overweight and have lost 111bs by exercising only now need to lose weight by cutting down the food and wine as well will only do this by being honest and keeping a log!

I have a weight loss goal and want to achieve it! After having my first child, I never took off the 60 pounds I put on and then we decided to have baby #2 and although I didn't put on more weight during the pregnancy, I did that on my own after his birth. When I hit the scale in Nov of '11 I was at my heaviest weight of 273 lbs. After that I decided to make a change and that lasted until the end of Feb and d I had lost a total of 30 lbs. A brief upset in my back made me take a week off and that motivation died quickly in the winter months and I got back into my old habits of eating bad foods and consuming lots of soda...Although I didn't put back on much weight, because I wasn't continuing to exercise, it felt like I did. So, as my birthday approaches, I am making the final call. I challenged my husband to see who can lose 50 pounds by March '13! Together I think we can do this, but at the same time I need to hold myself accountable which lead me to this website..So here it goes! To my 26th year!

I am a mother of 3, a 2 year old and 10 week old twins. I am now a stay at home mom.

I'm 27 y.o. and getting married in less than 10 months. Not only do I want to be beautiful in my wedding gown, I want to maintain a healthy lifestyle for the rest of my life.

I'm going back to school soon and am determined to not gain the 15 pounds guaranteed in going to college {even though I'm not technically a freshman}. I'm pretty active and love to exercise, however I have never really had a plan in mind. Now that I have goals like running a 5K and doing a pull up, I know what point I need to get to. It's the "getting to" part that is the hardest, though. When working out I listen to Metal music to get me motivated. Such as Amon Amarth, Korpiklaani, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Metallica.

I have tried a lot of exercise programs from P90x to wii nfl ea sports, boot camp, running, unfortunately I go in spruts, would like support.

I am a 29 year old unemployed former airline pilot. I am a fairly competitive cyclist in the KC area, but since losing my job and starting to date my girlfriend, I've let my addiction to food get out of control and have stopped working out as much as I used to.

im 19, live in the UK. always been thin but had a very sedentary lifestyle recently. my self worth is reflected somewhat in my weight- im a total perfectionist. looking to get to around 100lbs and be happy in clothes and comfortable in myself.

I am a 27 year old teacher who, has over the past five months, developed a mild binge eating disorder after months of dieting and exercising to control my weight.

Hello all, Jasmine here. I'm an incoming freshman college student who made it her goal to lose a few pounds when the semester starts. I'm from Australia but I'll be going to college in the US. It's actually my first trip abroad and also my first time away from home so I am nervous twice over than your average freshman.

When I got married at age 27 I weighed 120 lbs. I am 5'8". Now at age 38 I weigh 180 lbs. Seven years ago my husband suffered a major blow regarding his health and it changed our lives forever. We have been in survival mode living day to day since that time. I am READY to feel good and have energy again.

I am a 41 yr old mother of 3 (all girls....yes I know I am blessed). I will be graduating from school in a couple of months and will be a Registered Respiratory Therapist. I enjoyed running before going back to school, however, I got out of the habit, began making bad food choices, and sitting for long periods of time studying. I have gained 22 lbs while in school and desperately need to lose this weight. Working in the hospital I see the effects extra weight can have and don't want to end up like some of my patients. It seems like I have been on some type of diet most of my like and never stick with anything longer than a week or two. I am really hoping this time things will change.

I am a seminary student, wife, and mother of two fur children.

30 F. Married w/ 2 kids ages 7 months and 3 years old.

40 yrs old, married 19 years, two children, ages 10 & 12, work full-time outside the home. In 2008 I was in the best shape of my life, after working at a distribution center that was very physically challenging. It was like I was getting paid to get in shape. I switched jobs and was able to keep it off for awhile, but then took a computer class twice a week with a coworker & we ate out each time - Pizza Hut, a local Italian restaurant, & Culvers were favorites. Slowly, the weight started packing back on and I am now heavier than I have ever been. It feels as though I turned 40 last year and my metabolism stopped working, and the same efforts I took 5 years ago to lose weight no longer work. My primary goal is to become healthy as I am so sick of being out of breath after walking up a slight incline.

54 years old, married, no kids. Full time sedentary job.

Hey everybody! I am trying to be better about my weight. I'm a recovering bulimic, and was doing really well for a long time (no binge, or purge) but was living in fear of food so I tried this experiment where I didn't restrict, however, this backfired a little and I gained like 10 pounds. So now, I'm trying to get back on track, watch what I eat, drink more water, excerice, etc. and I lose the weight healthily.

I WAS a very energetic and tiny little thing.. back in the day- as I've aged.. I've expanded.. being that I'm only 5 feet tall- every pound shows... I'm ready to be comfortable in clothes, look good, feel good, and prolong my life!!

I'm a teacher/tutor, married mother of three grown kids. I have four beautiful grandchildren. I'm not into exercise; I've never been. But I am going to try, because I know it's key to permanent weight loss.

38 year old female who has let the weight creep on over the last 10 years. The last couple of years I haven't exercised at all and am looking for a push to get going. I'm tired of feeling like my life is out of my control.

I'm married and have two kids, a tween and a teen. I work full time in a job that I enjoy, but demands a lot of time.

I have two small kids and I use them shamelessly as my excuse not to lose weight! Basically, running around with them and after them is not helping me lose any weight. Must be all that drive thru food and leftovers from their meals. I'm tired of being overweight and unhealthy and not fitting in my old clothes. I am busy stay at home mom with not much help. My husband is super busy and not always available to help with the kids. I need to get motivated and stay motivated!

I m 28 year male from Pune height 5.8 weight 92 kg married .

I am a 30yr old wife and mother of 1. I have tried any and every "simple" and "easy" way to try to lose weight without lasting sucess. I just am not satisfied with my body anymore and I know I am the only one that can change that. I know that anything worth having is definitly worth working for!!!! I LOVE life but at this point in my life I am ready to get the excess weight off and keep it off!


Currently average 130#. After maintaining 160 for near 10 years it started creeping up and one day I saw 170 and flipped! I got serious counting healthy calories of 1200 to lose those 10 pounds, ended up continuing down to current weight. I never thought I could go that far and am loving it!

I`m a mom of 3 girls ages 9,8,4. I lost my weight after I gave birth to my 8 year old....but since having my 4 year old I`m having a lot more difficulties. I`m from Edmonton, Alberta Canada.

I'm a 34 year old with an all or nothing approach to weight loss which I'm trying to work on. Trying to take it one day at a time.

A university student who has slowly put on weight over the last six years, mainly through binge and emotional eating. Now I feel unhappy with my weight which a lot of the time makes me feel uncomfortable and anxious in social situations. Along with this, I also feel exhausted a lot of the time which is starting to stop me from following or enjoying the busy life I want to lead. A few months ago I was diagnosed with coeliac disease, so I cannot eat gluten, and I have struggled to adapt to this new diet in a healthy way. I want to amend this. Furthermore, I also suffer from depression and binge eating disorder both of which make it hard to stick to diets and losing weight. I want to be able to combat my habit of emotional and comfort eating and exchange it for a sustainable healthy diet. I also know that a healthier diet with more exercise will help combat the depression. I am a member of the lacrosse team at university and, along with having a healthier diet, I want to get fitter so I can play a more integral part in the team.

I am 53 years old; live in the DC-MD-VA area. I am single with 2-4 legged dogs Jack and Champ.

I am 52 years old, wife, mother of 5, grandmother of 5.5 (one coming!), telecommuter.

I am a Registered Dietitian and Personal Fitness Trainer. Yes, I know what to do. Just not always motivated to do it, and I lose focus a lot. Since my weight is in a healthy range, and I am not "fat," it's hard to stay motivated. But I feel so amazing when I way about 129, and all my clothes look great with no bulges or cellulite! Plus I have amazing energy and I like to compete in local running races and triathlons.

I'm 38, from Providence, RI.

Full time student, working on BA in Special Needs Education. Me and my husband have 6 children. I am ready to feel better and look better, by sticking with a work out routine and eating healthy.

I have been heavy ever since I was small. I have been struggling with losing weight for most of my life, nothing seems to stick for too long. I am determined to change the way I look and feel for myself and to be an example for my family.

I'm a 42 yr old mother of two boys (12 and 9). I did the cleanse a couple of summers ago and felt great, but slowly bad habits and stress won and I am hoping to get control of my health again and feel vital again.

I am smart and funny. I have been overweight my entire life and would like to lose weight with a support system.

46 years old retired military mother of 2 girls, a 20 year old college student and a 17 year old in the last year of high school and want that bikini body...haha is that possible? If not I will settle for a full one piece body :) I have recently retired from the military and find myself enjoying the relaxation and the coach waaay too much and need to sort myself out so, I need motivation from others like I had before. :)

I'm a 37 year old single gal. I own my own business. I'm hear to build some consistency in my life, i'm tired of dieting, I just want a way to live.

cancer survivor

I'm 54 years old, I have two grown boys but no grandchildren yet, just 2 grand puppies. I love the ocean, it's my favorite place in the world. I love to scuba dive and I enjoy photography. I'm married to a wonderful man, we are going on 29 years.

I am a wife of 20 years to a wonderful man, my high school sweetheart. I am a mother of 3 beautiful daughters and they all love me through life - no matter my size. My granddaughter is just 1 year old and I adore her more than life itself. I am a cancer survivor and since I beat that battle I know I can beat this more time.

married, hobbies are texas hold-em fishing crosswords

I am a mother of 2 boys (10 & 6), and a wife.. We are really busy and cooking every night is overwhelming especially trying to plan healthy meals that my boys will eat.

I'm a 38 years old, I'm single with a 12 year old son who I 'share care' with my ex-husband. I have a full time job as a teacher but because of our duel care arrangements I have a bit of time to myself now. I've put on 10kg (at least) over the past year, since I've been on my own and I'm 'over' carrying this extra baggage. It's not how I want to live. It's time to change. :)

I work at home, my job is pretty sedentary. I have been married for 38 years, 3 kids and 4 grands, and a dog named Molly.

I am 56 and single. I train special education teachers. I have been teaching for 35 years. My job has erratic hours which makes making eating and exercise habits inconsistent.

5'2", 285 lbs, married 25 years 5/17/11, divorced 5/16/12. Mother of 3 sons, 1 daughter-in-law, Christ follower, looking forward to being my best self.

40 yr old married mom of two. Works part-time and on the road to a healthier lifestyle.

Age 47, Full time Senior Engineer and Full time Student. Family and professional goals are near complete, now working on my improving health and lessening stress.

My name is Sharon, and I am nearing my 63rd birthday. I have one daughter and one grandson. I have been happily married to John for 44 years. I have struggled with my weight my whole life. I'd love to be able to just eat without worrying about what it is costing me! I remember when I weighed 133 pounds, I felt so uncomfortable in my tight fitting denim jeans. Now at over 150, I feel uncomfortable in my elastic waist, loose fitting granny-pants! It is time for me to get rid of these unwanted and unneeded pounds!

20 years old. Weighed 220 when I joined the army when I was 17 lost 30 pounds in 3 months then held my weight steady at 200 when I was in the army reserves. But now I'm inactive status and gained all my weight back plus some. I currently weigh 240. I'm 6'1" and work full time as a welder. I'm getting married in a month. I have problems with staying motivated with any diets I try. I tried body by vi but I couldn't stick to it.

Mother of four (three in college/grad school, one in high school), full time teacher, determined to lose weight and increase fitness.

I am a 31 yr.old mother of 3 11/4/2. I'm a stay at home mother and enjoy playing with my kids.

37, Male, Software Tester, Martial Arts and Vegetarian.

I am a very proud mother of 2. My daughter is 21 and graduated college. My son is 18 and will be starting college soon. I am a visalus promoter also and have lost 30lbs.

I am married to a wonderful man for almost 6 years. I work full time as a medical biller so I sit a lot during the day. I then go home and try to work out but with having 2 small children it is almost impossible.

My whole adult life I weighed 113 lbs, was in good shape, and never "dieted." Then, after kids & getting older (am 53) & changing metabolism, I'm officially 10 pounds overweight (per BMI) but 30 pounds heavier than in any other decade of my adult life. With a history of type-2 diabetes in my family and having tried for 5 years to shed the pounds with no success, I'm trying something new.

I'm a 26 year old female, 5'5, and had let myself gained more than 60 lb over the last 2 years! Now 203 lbs, never been this heavy my whole life. I had years struggling with bulimia and not loving how I look. What I don't like being this big is I had very little energy, easily tired and out of breath. Four years ago I lost 28 lb (160 lb to 132 lb), and had the best of time ever for a few years. I want to get back to feeling good like that again.

In the last two years I have gained 2 stone (28lbs) since I quit smoking and despite hating my size, I cannot seem to motivate myself to change my situation. So by joining a group I feel I can be answerable to them until my head-space comes together.

SAHM to precious 6 month old baby boy!

I am a 24 year old mother of a toddler with baby #2 on the way! I have been married for just over a year to my wonderful husband! I am a full-time student getting ready to enter my second, and last, year of my business administration diploma. I love spending time with family and friends (many of my friends are included when I speak of family). I love living in a bright, colourful and creative world!

"professional" dieter; grandmother of 5, married. Retired university prof but far too heavy. Enjoy singing, gardening, grandchildren and video games

I am single mom of 3, I use to be on Weight Watchers and was doing so good, then had thryoid removed and the weight kept coming back on, so hopefully through here with all the support I can reach my goal.

WVU fan that graduated from Marshall in 05. I hit my peak of 280 roughly 5 years ago after graduation and starting my desk job. Poor eating habits and little to no physical activity was my poison. I hated what I was becoming (like my parents) and could not keep up with my friends and ambitions. Slowly, i have made small adjustments to my eating habits and finding physical activities I enjoy.

I just turned 21. I have been slowly gaining weight and I really need to get fit. I feel like my eating is out of control and I have had many failed attempts at losing weight in the past. I need help staying motivated and hoping this works!

I am 24 years old. I am married with a beautiful 7month old daughter. I have struggled with my weight. I used to be in excellent physical condition but when life started happening I Left my personal goals behind me. Its time for me to take control and get back to the happy and healthy life style that I miss, not just for me but for my family as well.

First-time (new) mom--my baby boy is 3 months old

I am 48 year old professional married mother of two: ages 3 and 7. Can't seem to get the work/life balance right and am hoping this group will help keep me accountable.

I am a 49 years old and I have struggled with my weight for years, and I have had success with other programs, but I have a hard time sticking with them for the long term. I did the cleanse a few years ago and I had great success, but when my work schedule became erratic, and my hubby started cooking, I put on weight. (He does not follow my eating plan) The past few years have been an emotional upheaval and I am back to my heaviest weight. I am committed to eating healthier and getting to my goal weight and staying at it. I need to stay connected to my teams for the accountability.

Retired teacher

I am 24 years old. I live with my boyfriend and we have 2 dogs. I am 5 foot 3 and weigh 170 pounds. Ideally I would like to weigh 120-130 pounds. With my height and body type I do not like the way I look, nor the way I feel. I enjoy many things. I enjoy art, graphic design, interior design, photography, and anything creative. I also enjoy the outdoors. I like hunting, fishing, camping, riding, or anything in the outdoors.

I am married with a 7 year old. I love to have fun and enjoy life. I have never really been "thin" so the idea is not really in my frame of reference. Someday, I would like to know what it feels like.

Time to end the weight struggle once and for all.

I am 43 with two children ages 15 and 10 and a husband of 18 years. I have struggled with my weight most of my life. For years, I taught aerobics, mainly as a way to keep my weight down. About two years ago, I stopped teaching because of my kids' schedules and my work schedule. Top that with being over 40 and the weight started creeping up. I still exercise regularly and eat better than average, but it's not enough.

I'm a California girl, born and raised. All my life I was thin and in great shape, until about 50 and then I gained about 65 lbs and now that I am in my 60s I have decided to get rid of the extra pounds.

I want to go out with a wild bang instead of a whining whimper!

I'm 41 and a wife and mother of two

I am 29 years old. I have a beautiful 7 year old daughter. I have a 7 year old pug, and 3 cats, one is only about a year old and the other two are 8 or 9. I have been married for 7 years, we have been together for 10 years. When I came home from the hospital when my daughter was born, I weighed 126 pounds. As of right now, I weigh 175.5 pounds. I hate it and yet I can't seem to keep myself motivated to lose it.

I am a stay-at-home mom of two. Like to lift weights at the gym. Not so crazy about cardio! Want to spend the year before I turn forty getting the best body of my life.

Stay at home mom of 2 great kids ages 13 and 11. Enjoy a variety of sports but unfortunately have not played as much since kids were born. Just started back into softball and basketball

Wife and mom of 2 young boys- 1 and 5 yrs old. Tired of struggling with weight loss.

I am a gramma of 4 and I am too ill from Fibromyalgia to be able to see them as often as I'd like.

Finally over my divorce drama (married for 24 years) and ready to embrace life to the fullest. Busy 43 year old government who moved away from her kids and grandchild to a foreign country to take a new job and find herself. Fitness age is 72- very unacceptable.

I have recently moved to NY from RI and have been focusing on building my business but not focusing on self care.Although i am a personal trainer and health coach, my own workouts have been lacking and as a result clothes are tighter. Doing this cleanse is important for me to get back on track. I have always struggled with my weight but since falling in love with fitness I was able to keep it off. However, the last five years I suffered through fertility treatments and slowly the weight crept up.It is time to take back control.

I'm a 27 year old female living in South Korea although I'm Irish. I've always been over weight. My parents own a family restaurant and I grew up in it. My Mom's over weight and has bad food habits, so I'm fighting to unlearn those. I have lots of awkward food allergies and sensitivities. If I eat the wrong things I get Excema on my hands. Exercise for me isn't a problem. I am a black belt in Taekwondo and currently train in it 10 hours a week. It would be nice to loose enough weight and be strong enough to jump the heights and lengths of my teenage training partners.

54 years old, dealing with menopausal weight creep and sedentary job. Lucky to have tremendous support at home and willing partner to dietary changes. We found Peertrainer over a year ago and started with 1 step- adding 1 vegetable to every meal.

Putting blinders on for this year. My goals are to lose the weight and to complete a nursing program that I am enrolled in. I am a wife and mother to four children under 9. I have done many things in my life, but realized that I need to do a better job of doing the things I actually tell myself I'm going to do. Start and finish. Focus.
