Still working fulltime

I'm a 43 year old full time working mother of two kids who are 7 and 5. I want to lose 20 lbs and gain back the energy I used to have .

I am a retired nurse.Having problems with emotional eating.I know all the do's and don'ts of nutrition which doesn't help.My mother has recently had to move in with me and I can already tell my eating is becoming a serious health issue for me.I believe communication with others in a similar situation would be mutually beneficial.

I love God, my husband, children, grandchildren, puppy children and my dear friends. I was in a car accident in 2006 that seems to define quite a lot of my life even though I try desperately not to let it.

I am a blogger. Writer in health sector like nopalea

I have 2 children of my own, 1 boy 1 girl & 2 stepsons. Wonderful man in my life that is wonderful support.

i am now 33yrs old. I have a 6th month old baby and a step mom to a 13yr old who is involved heavily in band and 4-H that takes up alot of our evenings. I work full time and my husband works long hour days and works most Saturdays so it's hard to find time to work out other than at lunch. I used to work out almost every day and has slowly faded away to nothing after G was born. I have slowly started back working out but have a hard time finding motivation or time.

43 once fit now fat again.

I am fit and active and enjoy outdoor activities. Looking for local weekday workout/fitness partners and/or weekend warrior pals.

I am 62 years of age and a retired teacher. For over the past 50 years of my life I have struggled with weight and my body image. I have tried all diet programs from one end of the spectrum to the other to only gain back the weight. I have been a constant yo yo dieter. I want to stop this madness for once and all. My goal is to not crave food, but rise above these cravings and feel empowered by making healthy food and lifestyle choices. Recently over the past year I have lost 80 pounds on HCG and am on my final round with this protocol. I need accountability to follow through to the end of Phases 2, 3 and 4.

I'm 48, married to a wonderfully supportive mate, have a wonderful child on the cusp of adulthood, suffering with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue, a bulging disc in my neck and a strong determination to be hopeful that the future holds a slimmer, healthier me.

Love to work out, love the sunshine, chocolate, to cook, love my family and husband, love to got our home in Lake havau AZ, swim, sew, craft!

I am probably the least motivated person when it comes to losing weight, watching what I eat and exercising. I HATE exercise, and know that I need to start if I want to lose weight.

I have a degree in exercise science and some certifications, so I have the knowledge. What I lack right now is the motivation. I have hypothyroidism which makes it hard sometimes. Sometimes my levels drop and it is a literal struggle to move. When I'm normal I run marathons and never stop moving. I was doing well until a couple of years ago when I got an injury and I just haven't been able to get the weight off since. I've lacked consistency. I really feel like if I had someone to be accountable to I might do better.

I am 37 years old, weighing 308lbs. My weight has been going up year on year and I am just exhausted with trying to stay motivated. I know what works, just not how to stay committed.

Married since 2002 to my best friend from childhood. We have two beautiful boys ages 7 and 4, two guinea pigs and a dog. I'm a stay at home mom just trying to deepen my relationship with Jesus.

I am 56 years young. I live in upstate NY. I'm married. I have no children. I am a Born Again Christian, and Love the Lord. want to be a healthy temple for Him and a healthy vessel for Him to move through. I love worship and spending time with the Lord. I want to be a good example of how to live a healthy life style for other people who are struggling to loose weight. It breaks my heart to see obese people and even more to know that I am one of them.

I tend to live for the moment - which is usually a good thing. However, most of the choices I make in the moment affect me long term - so I am learning to enjoy the moments as well as ensuring they have a positive impact on my future.

I am a 41 year old mother of two in a common-law relationship. I live in Canada. When I was young, I was super skinny. I started to gain weight around age 20 and have been gaining and losing ever since. My hardest challenge since becoming a mother 12 years ago is just finding time for myself to exercise and look after myself which includes eating properly. I love to cook and I love trying new things and ethnic foods. Over the years I have tried several diets off and on. I did lose a lot but have gained it all back. I want to change my habits mostly.

35 year old looking for motivation to get the weight off!!!

I am 22 Years old, and overweight. I fall into a high risk category for people my age; I will be more susceptible to different types of heart disease, asthma, cancers, and added emotional stress. I’m a happy person, looking to make the right kinds of changes in my life.

I'm a country girl. I'm engaged. I wanna loose weight for me not for anybody else. I'm 15.

I am a stay at home mom to 3 kids ages 8, 4, and 2. I want to lose weight and get healthy, but often find myself too busy and tired and taking the easy way out.

I'm 59 and doing fine. Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. I Corinthians 10:31

I'm 21 years old, a student. I 7kg I want to get rid of. I'm 169 cm, and I currently weight about 67 kg.

This is the first time I am trying to lose weight using an online group. I am nervous about the process.

I am turning 46 today. I am a single mother, by choice. I have raised a child on a limited income in a very expensive place. I haven't been able to exercise or have time to myself for over 5 years now. My son has just started kindergarten which gives me at last 1.5 hours in the morning and saves me 100's of dollars. Now it's MY TURN!!! I designate this next year to be mine.

in my 50's and need to lose 30 lbs. Seeking health, and comfort with my body. Working woman, 3 grown children, 2 grandchildren, and husband of 34 years.

I'm 51 yrs, and a professional counselor. I have gained and lost, gained and lost several times, and am tired! I really need to change the way I eat and the food choices I make. I want to feel good about me!

I have a great deal of fitness & nutrition knowledge. I hold a degree in Kinesiology & Dance & have certifications in TRX & Pilates. I have taught dance, yoga, Pilates, weight training, dance based exercise classes, & developed some of my own! I love all the possibilities of the human body & helping others achieve their goals, but now I need to focus on getting my weight down as it has crept up slowly these last couple of years. I believe I have some weight resistant issues & I have hypothyroidism. I believe the forum PT offers is fabulous & will be helpful. Even someone with knowledge needs help, support, & updates on new science & techniques.

I am a Christian. I love God, my family, & my country! I am happily married 17 years. I have 2 children & 2 grandchildren (who I am absolutely in LOVE with).

I am an explorer who really likes to find new things to do, to see, and am always looking for ways to make things better. I work hard, sometimes more than I should! I am a creative person: I sing, dance, draw, paint, sew, design, handcraft, and do all sorts of things.

45 year old mother of 2. Recently resigned from an exciting high level job in Pharma. Job travel was too much & I wanted to be able to spend more time with my family. Previously lost about 90 lbs with a personal trainer & no carb system. I was very close to my goal when both parents got very sick and taking care of their needs was more important than the gym or good eating habits. It all fell apart! I have gained much of the weight back and cannot seem to find a good way to loose it again I presently have a broken foot which has been even more discouraging

I am 45 year old mother of 2 grown daughters and have a 15 month old grandson. I am kind of a homebody and would rather be inside than out. I recently started weight watchers , lost 10lbs but am at a stand still with many more pounds to go.

Diagnosed 2 years ago with Type 2 diabetes at age 63 and have been taking 2 metformin a day, keeping carbs low, and H1A1C at 6.3 which doc says is good. But I need to lose 50 pounds - I believe if I do I may not need the metformin at all. Yet even tho' I am watching my carbs, logging all I eat and keeping calories at 1500 or less a day, I am NOT losing weight at all. Foot problems and neck herniated disks keep me from doing heavy exercises.

As of 8/5/13 i stopped smoking I after 45 yrs. 67 yrs old and for health reasons am now attempting to lose weight. Work at a public library five days a week. I love to read books both fiction and nonfiction. Belong to a book discussion group. Attend various programs at the library.

I am 4'11 African-American woman and my weight now is 198lbs. I am separated. and I am seeking a more healthier life.

I have two children. After number two my weight has increased a lot!

The attorneys at the Galewski Law Group understand the stress and emotional confusion that may accompany an accident or personal injury. They deal with this type of problem every day, and their priority is their bottom line. You need someone on your side, you need a lawyer that is skilled in negotiation, litigation and personal injury matters. More at
