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 am 55 years old and have been a health care professional for 34 years. Had a hysterectomy in 2005 and my weight has been out of control since then. My husband and I have 2 grown sons and those guys love to cook! In the past year and 1/2 I have lost 52 pounds using the peer trainer Point of No Return Program, but this winter did me in and I have gained back 20 pounds. It seems that if I eat more than 1200 calories a day I gain weight, and that is not easy to maintain. Time to get back to my regimen and I am hoping to get my motivation back.
