Members profiles:
I am "of an age", a former runner, still an active walker, and bored to death of weight issues. Want to get them under control so I can spend my time on more fun activities. Would rather walk, play music, read books, write, travel, garden, knit, weave, cook, work, even clean my basement rather than obsess about losing weight, but am very proud of the fact that I am taking off and keeping off enough weight to be shedding major parts of my too big wardrobe.

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.
