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 72 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 50s. I am a fallen-away lifetime weightwatcher and a relapsed Carbyhydrate Addict. I rejoined Weight Watchers (after around 15 years lapse) and regained my lifetime status after FOUR years of gradual, little by little losses and lots of plateaus. I am so happy to be just under "overweight", and want to lose 5 more lbs, gradually. So far, my weight loss is 40 lbs, and jeans went from tight 16s to roomy 10s.

I am a 63 year old schoolteacher, happily married, two grown kids. I am entering final phase of pre-retirement career, and have a goal of becoming more proactive in terms of what is happening with it.

I'm 63 and began using Peertrainer Feb 15 2009. I lost 50 pounds in a year but it came to a halt when my husband came home from rehab Jan. 30 2010 for a lengthy illness and I began cooking for him. I'm now back at it because he is recovering finally!. I finally signed up for the point of no return program and will begin it this afternoon.
