I'm a 27 year old graduate student employed full-time. Looking forward to graduating in December 2006! I'm happiest when I am active on a regualar basis. As life would have it, my boyfriend is very slender, not one bit concerned with weight or nutrition. When school and work get tough, nutrition, sleep, and exercise are the first to falter. Also, I've recognized problematic emotional eating patterns which I'd like to address. Decided to join PeerTrainer as a means of support and motivation.

I am 32 years old, 5'5 and weight between 235-240 lbs. I started becoming overweight at 13. I think it was an outlet from stress over some family problems. I am an emotional eater.

I'm a pediatrician and pediatric dentist (way too much time in school...) who is the founder and managing general partner of a group practice and who teaches part time @ Stanford Medical School. My work schedule tends to be very hectic which results in "stream-of-consciousness" eating habits. Over the years my lifestyle has been extremely athletic, unfortunately I fractured two vertebrae in a bike race 8 years ago which ended my cycling as well as the ability to run. More unfortunately although my lifestyle changed, my eating habits did not. Ever since high school I've had the destructive habit of "night time eating," - after going to bed I get up several times each night and go into the kitchen and eat - usually whatever is sweet. This night time eating habit is such a craving that I literally can't go to sleep unless I eat something.
