2015 - I am walking away from a job-for-life as a tenured professor at a major university. What a choice and what changes in my life --unfortunately not including any weight loss yet. I feel lighter, figuratively, but am hoping the future will make that literally, too. It is scary to have no job, but am exploring other possibilities, like writing and folk-music. May have to take any job whatsoever to get health insurance!

I am a medical professional who counsels others on health and diet issues so I have no excuse for not using this information for my own benefit.My weight has increased over the past 3 years. i am unable to fit my clothes and not in a financial situation where I can replace them!

I'm 70, live in Seattle. Have a husband and two children, one in Philadelphia with two children, the other here in Seattle.. I do a lot of volunteer work. I love theater, opera and traveling - and try to combine these when possible. Before the market crash I did a lot of traveling and found myself most at home in Central Asia. With luck things will improve! I was diagnosed 6yrs ago with type 2 diabetes and - being scared to death - dropped 40 lbs rapidly. Now it is a lot slower. A lot. Age? Better than nothing!

The typical story as many here, 59 years. Recently found a notebook that I had in college (1972) that I used to record what I ate in order to try to lose 10 pounds. Have I honestly been dieting for 40 years? That's ridiculous. Well I didn't diet when I was pregnant, twice-- two girls-- permanent 10 pound gain each time. Like I said, pretty typical.
