I am a hospital chaplain. I am a 59 year old widow. I have had several surgeries in the past few years bu am doing much better and am ready to focus on taking care of myself.

Married 51 yo mom of two, educator, consultant, volunteer optimizing my health, fitness, and well being.

I am 53 and like to be active. I divorced 2.5 years ago and am recovering from an abusive relationship. I have two boys, ages 18 and 20 who are also recovering. I love the nutritional information and scientific facts provided. The PONR program was awesome and helped so much as an emotional support

52. Married, two teens.

Weight history--life-long struggles--first in my mind, then in reality. In my teens, I thought I was fat at 135. I wasn't. I first really gained weight in college, up to about 165, which is where I hung during my 20s. Then in my 30s, I had a very stressful job and really packed on the pounds. My highest weight was 242 in 1998. In 1999, I got seriously ill and lost 95 pounds due to illness. After I recovered, weight slowly crept on. I've been back over 200 for most of the decade, pretty much cycling up and down between 212 and 202. The highest weight I've recorded in the past decade was 223 and the lowest 197. When I hit 223 in 2008, I joined Weight Watchers and shed 10 pounds. Then in 2010, after another weight spike, I started following ETL and lost another 10, and I hung out at about 202 with periodic spikes up to 210 or so that I usually reverse in fairly short order. But breaking down below 200 was a real challenge from about age 36 on. In August 2014, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and advised to go gluten-free. I did, and lost 8 pounds in one week and have been hanging out a few pounds under 200 ever since. Still a lot to lose, but this is the longest period in a decade that I've been consistently under 200, so that feels good.

Married mom of 2 boys, ages 10 and 8. Part-time pediatrician.

I'm an artist, working on my own - so have to be completely self motivated - a life long adventure in self discipline which never carried over to my eating habits until I lost weight in 2008. Peertrainer helped me get it off, and I kept it off for two years, then the combination of a death in the family, too much time traveling to exotic places with delicious food, and an injury which precluded any exercise involving my right foot I gradually put on 10 lbs in the last 2 years. I can now do some walking again, and am ready to closely monitor my eating as well again. JANUARY 1, 2008: 154 lbs, waist 31, belly button 34 1/2, hips 40, bust 38 1/2, thigh 23 3/8, calf 13 7/8 ********** SEPTEMBER 22, 2008: Beginning new challenge to lower my fat% and build my muscle %. This will have to be subjective, because I have not figured out a way to measure it, or have it measured. 135 lbs, waist 28 1/2, belly button 31, hips 38, bust 36, thigh 21, calf 13 7/8, bicep 11 1/4, bicep flexed 12.********** Week 4: 131 lbs, waist 26 1/2, belly button 27 1/2, hips 37, bust 34, thigh 20 3/4, calf 13 5/8, bicep 11 1/4, bicep flexed 11 3/4*********** DECEMBER 22, 2008 Week 12: 131.5 lbs,waist 27, belly button 29 1/2, hips 37, bust 35, thigh 20 3/4, calf 13 5/8, bicep 11 1/2, flexed 12 1/2 Interesting to compare to 2 months ago: In spite of not losing any weight, I feel much harder - and I did gain measurable muscle in my biceps. I do feel that my perception of my waist is that it is larger, though a lot more toned. I was doing a lot of ab work for a while: I have heard that building muscle there can make you thicker rather than thinner!********** JANUARY 1, 2009, The 12 Week Challenge, A Repeat: Beginning statistics: 128 lbs, waist 26", belly button 29", hips 37", bust 35", thigh 21", calf 13 5/8", neck 13 1/4 ", biceps 11 1/4, 12 1/4 flexed.********* JULY 2011: weigh and measure tomorrow! Gosh! I forgot that I was actually down to 128! I've gained more than 10 lbs! ********** SEPTEMBER 2012: 144 Ugh! On my way to my 170# high again - time to get a grip. Decided to try the Cleanse, both for weight loss, and to try to figure out what is causing my lower abdominal discomfort. Waist 30, belly button 33.5, hips 39, thigh 22, bust 37, calf 13.5

For the past 10 years I have struggled with 10-15 pounds and have lost and regained weight. Jan 7th I started The 4-Day Diet and felt great, lost 4 lbs in 4 days, continued and have lost 7 lbs over the past month and 1/2. Bad habits are creeping back into my life.

36 year-old mom of two. Eat well most of the time, but crash when tired or busy. Want nutrition-based eating to provide me with more energy and long-term health benefits.

Small stuff every day. Consistency is key.

I am 48 years old and have been working on gaining control over food. I underwent a gastric bypass in 2002 and lost nearly 200 lbs. Since getting married six years ago, I've slowly put back on 30 lbs.

I am 49 and have two boys - 11 and 8. I have been married and have lived in RI for almost 15 years. I have been working from home for the past 8 years. I was super active prior to getting married - ran in a couple marathons, dance classes, biking. I even took 25 mile bike rides until I was 7 months pregnant!! After my 2nd little guy came along can't seem to lose more then 5 or ten pounds - and then the dreaded winter comes!!

I'm a 35-year-old professional, a foodie and great cook who loves to exercise and is quite fit despite still needing to drop about 20 pounds. I have successfully lost 35 or so pounds on Weight Watchers over the past few years and right now am bouncing between 154 and 160. I want to break through 150 and ultimately get into the low 130s. It would feel like a miracle, but I know I can do it.

Mature yogi, astrologer, school lunch lady, theatre volunteer, gardener, homemaker married 24 yrs, 2 daughters in college

I am a 44 working mom to a very active 3 1/2 yr old boy. I like to think of myself has having fitness as a hobby.

I am 33 years old, recently married, living in the UK. I love acting, sewing and living in different cultures. I need to lose about 30 pounds, I would like to start running again, but am a bit scared to since I tore the cartilage in my knee last time I trained for a 10km run. I currently do Zumba twice a week and walk a bit but am looking to really increase this.

I'm 22 years old and I have two jobs. I'm pretty busy but I love running, yoga, and hiking. I like to workout, but I have trouble eating right. I crave junk food like ice cream and chips.

I'm a 44 year old working mother of 2 young girls. I consider myself a pretty healthy eater, but have somehow gotten off track in the last few months -- ready to get back in shape :-)!

I'm a Mum of two from Australiah

I am a 39-year-old (soon to be 40) Mom of 4. I work from home as a medcial transcriptionist and as a result spend many hours sitting each day. I homeschool my kids and spend much of my day teaching them and running them from one activity to another. A few years ago I had a Thyroid Storm and as a result no longer have a functioning thyroid and am on 100% replacement. I enjoy working out but often have difficulty fitting it into my schedule.

I'm a newly graduated nurse midwife, a wife and mother. I have five grand children. I'm a Mormon and love to read and serve others. I'm learning to have a better relationship with myself and to look at this symbolism of my weight.

I am single and retired and love the freedom this brings - so many interesting things to do and the time to do them!

70, married, work out of my home. As a result of Fresh Start Cleanse and all the tools I've learned decided to get my Real Estate License. I'm excited and energized. Will take my state exam within a month or so.
