My name is Rachel and I am a 25 yr old Office Manager for a doctors office. I currently live with my boyfriend, we have been together almost a year and a half. When we first got together I was 220lbs and I have been on a gaining streak since. I have always been heavy but back in 2004 i went from 280lbs to 216lbs in just 4 months but I pretty much starved myself and gained it all back. Anyway I got a wake up call the other night when my boyfriend confronted me in the nicest way possible and told me that since I have gained all this weight he feels that his physical attraction for me is deminishing and he is worried about my health. That snapped me out of my food mindset and put me back on to the path of losing weight. I just need A LOT of help

Unhealthy eater....drinks too much

Female, 46, desk job, kids, stress!, about 50 pounds overweight

I am a single 30yo female. I have lost 30 lbs since July '08. I have hit a 5+ month plateau. I currently weigh 160 lbs. I want to lose 20 more lbs. I hope that you can help me get there! Im trying so hard, but I am now getting discouraged. I work out 6 days a week. I do both cardio and weight training. I log my workouts and what I eat in a book I take to the gym. I also drink protein shakes for breakfast and post workout.

I am 32 year old Indian working woman. I had a daughter in July 2007 and have not been able to lose the pregnancy pounds! I am a regular in gymn and try to workout 4-5 times a week although I have not been very consistent in 2007/ 2008 due to the demands of a newborn baby! I am trying to stay on track in 2009. I do spinning class 2-3 days/ week and the other 2 days I do 30 mins of aerobics (Treadmill, cross training etc) plus 30 minutes of strength training.

I am a stay at home mom with two children, ages 1 and 5. I enjoy working out and spending time with my family. I love shopping but find little time to do it with my little ones. I am currently trying to loose 10lbs by dieting (Weight Watchers Plan), the Tracy Anderson Method and working out.

I am 24 year old male. Half Puerto Rican and Half Black. I have been big my entire life and I am tired of it. I want to be skinny and see things from a healthy perspective. I want to be happy with the way that I look physically as well as happy with the way that I feel.

I'm a teen with no life. I sit home all day in front of the TV and do nothing. Since school dosent start until Jan 11th, I figured i can be more active.

Richmond working mom - middle aged, over weight & out of shape. Loathe and detest working out and am computer challenged.

I'm recovering from a 13 year battle with Anorexia that came very, very close to claiming my life. I've since been given the all clear to start exercising and I'm thrilled! I'm 23 years old, 5'7 and weigh 127 lbs. I would like to lose ONLY 5 lbs and build a lot of lean muscle for swimsuit season. I'm very motivated but could always use advice!

Hello all! My name is Lisa, I am currently 26 years old and counting down to my wedding. My short term goal is to look and feel great for my wedding & honeymoon. My long term goal is to live a healthy lifestyle not just for myself, but also for my future family.

I am a mother of 2 beautiful twin boys that are 2 years old. They keep me pretty busy. I also work full time and I am married to a very supportive husband that will take care of the boys when I need to exercise but I am excited that they are getting old enough to take with sometimes!

I'm 36, African American, female, no children and really want to have a family one day. I have been overweight my entire life and it has to change. My feeling is now or never. While never is a very frightening though, now is even more intimidating. I need help, I need support, I need to know I can.

I am a 22 year old social worker working about 50-60 hours a week. Eating on the go is a challenge. I like working out, and love how it reduces stress. I am more motivated towards any goal when working in a team with others.

Love to be active outdoors and in the gym but my evening workshift usually prevents me from doing this during the week.

I love to exercise and have done it pretty much all of my life. Particularly like the flexibility.

I am 60 yrs old, a grandmother who loves to cook

I am 24 going on 25 and I am a compulsive eater. I am a health freak and have accomplished some radical fitness-centered ventures, but I have a problem with simply eating too much and too often. More importantly, though, I love to travel, volunteer, and explore ideas and concepts through eastern religions and alternative pathways. I always try to be happy and spread love to others!

My name is Malaz Elamin and i'm 16 years old and i go to high school. I weigh 155 lbs. I've been over weighted my in my past when i was about 13 to 14 years old. But, suddenly i dropped a lot at 15 but gained it all back now in just 6 to 7 months. I my lack of confidence in myself and i'm insure all the time. I feel like people judge me everywhere i go because of my weight and i avoid Skyping with my old friends and family because of their reaction towards my weight. I have absolutely no motivation in my life and I've tried motivating myself many times, but i fall apart all over again and gain the weight i lost in just 3 to 4 days. I want to lose weight as much as i can just to free happy and no be depressed everyday, crying myself to sleep and waking up hating myself. I would love to feel fresh and good when i wake up and wear what i want. (:
