Live in Boulder,CO (so many fitt people here) & somehow after moving here I went from 120lbs to 160lbs! My stress level increased and when my now husband moved in our habits (good and bad) didn't mesh right. I used to keep the weight off by dancing. Found swing dancing back in '98 love it (i.e. user name HepCat, corny I know) but since my now husband moved in in 2000 I have been less active, more stressed, and ate horribly so I gained the weight! I've lost some of it in 2006 with the Nourishing Traditions diet approach but I need to exercise. I have a 15 year old son, who through eating right (most of the time) and doing the Nourishing Traditions is in excellent shape & putting me to shame! I also work a 'regular job' while I am trying to two businesses off the ground (my husband & I both are starting different ventures but I'm involved in both). I'm 33 (34 in July), 5'-5", 155 and the mother of a 15 year old boy.

I am 23, engaged (wedding in October) to a martial arts instructor, and work for an animal rescue nonprofit in San Diego. In my spare time (ha!) I write for a couple local newspapers and publish articles on the internet in the realm of entertainment and video games. I just started doing the gym thing again (finally), trying to do at least *something* each day, whether it be yoga, elliptical, weight training, pilates, or a brisk walk. I studied dance in college and would like to get back into it. I really need to focus on my eating, removing processed, nasty foods from my diet.

I am a 32 year old artist--my husband and I own a gallery in our downstairs storefront. I am also a special ed teacher; I teach 6th-8th grade kids on the autism spectrum. I was happy with my weight but recently put on 20 pounds. I am determined to strengthen my resolve and get back on the self-improvement wagon!

I'm 48, a college-age son, married for 25 years, and a Type II diabetic trying to control her blood sugars without medication.
