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!

I'm 52, female, professional, live alone and work at home (telecommute). I was thin but never athletic as a youngster. I developed a binge eating problem in college, and my weight just kept going up until about age 35, when I weighed 235. In the past 15 yrs I've slowly improved many of my eating habits, quit drinking, and learned the joy of exercise, but I struggle constantly with emotional eating and I still occasionally binge eat. I was at 180 lbs during most of my 40s but when menopause hit I gained 10 lbs overnight (almost true) and now I can't believe I'm at 200 lbs. I'm 5'10".

I live in NC, moved here five years ago to be near my daughter and her family, however they have now moved to CA. I miss them like mad, but love the Raleigh and will remain here. I'm a retired respiratory therapist, I love to read, the computer, have a passion for cooking, setting the table, friends for lunch/dinner, cookie baking and also something non food related, , hand painting and embossing note cards.
