Members profiles:
I'm 60 "plus" yrs. old (but younger than 70 :-) and 5ft. 8in. tall. I have a very busy schedule between working, volunteering and being involved with my church. I'm single with no children... but have a throng of nieces, nephews and God children. I love animals and at present have 2 cats.. (I like dogs too, but schedule too busy to give proper attention right now.)

I am a 55 yr old mother of 2 grown children. My weight has gone in every direction since college. I have had health issues and many years of caring for ailing family members. Now I need to focus on me; I have horses, goats, and dogs, so I am busy. I need energy-so I won't starve myself-- I need to eat right and not fast..... And I have to have a sense of humor during this challenge.......

I am 57, and when I was in my 20s & early 30s I was thin and found it easy to stay that way without dieting or exercise. Then in my mid/ late 30s I was in a stressful marriage, compounded by a stressful job, and I ate. Gradually I put on 50lbs, and I've struggled to lose it - so I've just given up. I stumbled across this plan a few months ago and decided to try it once the holidays were over - so here I am trying to be hopeful & determined! Ouch, I weighed myself today - for the first time In many years - and realized that I've put on 70 lbs, and not 50 like I guessed. So I have plenty of work ahead !!
