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!


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.)


Mother/Gma Lots of hobbies
