First Name is Eileen. Computer consultant with desk job not helping with the weight problem.

I am a 71 year old college teacher, with a wonderful husband who is a great cook. I have been weight conscious since I was 13, but managed to stay between the top edge of normal and below obese range until my 50's. I am a fallen-away lifetime weightwatcher and a relapsed Carbyhydrate Addict. The past three years have been a steady climb in weight, and now I am at the edge of obese. I am afraid to get on the scale! It seems I just began to doubt that I was meant to be slimmer, perhaps this was my genetically set weight range, my grandmothers were heavy after 50, etc. But somehow I stupidly failed to realize that without monitoring, I could get much bigger! So, I want to try to lose weight, exercise and be healthier. I rejoined Weight Watchers (after around 15 years lapse.)

I'm over 60, a grandmother of 5, retired with my husband retired, I'm a reader, I play Words with Friends and Canasta on my Nook. I like to walk outside.

My name is Chris. I am a 63 year old divorced mom of two adult children. I am a church organist (United Methodist, former Episcopal), choir director and private music teacher. I have become a seeker of good nutrition ever since surprise colon cancer and surgery in September 2010. Instead of chemo, I did a raw foods diet. Thank God, I have been cancer free for over 3.5 years! Unfortunately I have let myself slip back into some old eating habits, and I am determined to get back on track. My parents lived with me and my kids for several years. Both had pretty severe health problems and have gone on to their heavenly home. Lots of stress in my life with divorce (twice), single mom and caring for aging trying to make ends meet with church job, private teaching, weddings, funerals, etc. Sound familiar, Sarah? :-)
