i will be 30 in a few weeks. i am a stay at home wife in northern california. my top weight was 193 back in 1998. i lost weight 60 lbs in 2000, but have been yo-yoing between 137 and 120 ever since. i want to have a baby in 2-3 years and want to get down to 120ish via eating a super squeaky clean diet to prepare for a healthy pregnancy and birth.


Married, 46, work a desk job.

















I am 43, a wife and mother of 2 boys, ages 5 1/2 and almost 3. I also work full-time as a plant ecologist, so life is very busy! I have been working diligently to lose weight. I am good for several weeks and then seem to get derailed. I feel great when I am eating well. I would like to lose 10 - 12 more pounds. It just seems to come off so slowly. I am hoping the cleanse can help with this. I am also mostly vegetarian. I eat some fish, so I am hoping there will be plenty of vegetarian options.


I am a 45 year old working mom with 2 young kids who I adore.


single, full time working parent of 2 high energy kids (6 and 8) I love to cook (and eat) and actually like clean food...have a difficult time juggling all of the balls and not grabbing the easiest thing to eat instead of the best thing to eat.

Working mother of twin girls(9). I have to start making time for myself. I want to get back in shape and start eating better so I can have more fun with my kids.


Working mom; professional.


I'm a resident going into my last year of training. I just had a baby (he's almost 4 months old) I gained A LOT of weight during my pregnancy and am really struggling to get it off. My life is really busy, but I try to make a point to workout at least a little bit everyday. I know I can improve my diet but seem to have no willpower to do so.


I am a 45 year old mom of two little ones (8 and 4). I work full-time out of the house. I love to read, garden, and enjoy the outdoors.


I'm 40 yrs old, work full time, mother of a 13 year old daughter.


I am a single mom who barely has enough time to spend with my child. I lost all my baby weight about 2 years ago and have managed to gain 15 pounds of it back. I know I need to submit to God to help me with the discipline and motivation to eat better and exercise regularly.


Age 38 -- mom of 2 (11 and 8). I figured everything would just fall in to place naturally as I got older, but now realize I need to readjust my lifestyle to make it happen. Let's do this, people!!


I am 33 years old. I am happily married with 3 step-children who are 26, 21, and 19. I have a 4 year old granddaughter. I have a wonderful, supportive family. I am a Medical Social Worker who works with home care and hospice patients. I am Christian woman with a strong faith life.


For the past 10 years I have struggled with 10-15 pounds and have lost and regained weight. Jan 7th I started The 4-Day Diet and felt great, lost 4 lbs in 4 days, continued and have lost 7 lbs over the past month and 1/2. Bad habits are creeping back into my life.


I'm 49, mother of 2 adolescent children. I own my own business in counseling. I've been yoyo-ing since I was 13. Since January of 2009 I first lost approximately 28 lbs, unfortunately gained 9 back since September, and have now (May of 2010) lost those plus an additional 3 lbs. After losing the 28 lbs I finally found the courage to go to a martial arts school and start training (I used to think I was both too fat and too old for that, though I was very attracted to the training I saw my son doing). I find it quite a struggle to keep the weight off, I'm still every bit as obsessed with it as when I was heavier.








36 year-old mom of two. Eat well most of the time, but crash when tired or busy. Want nutrition-based eating to provide me with more energy and long-term health benefits.


I'm 59 , married, 2 grown kids of my own and 4 grown stepkids. An attorney with a lot of stress in my work life, as well as long hours. I lost down to my goal weight through Weight Watchers when I was 40 and have gradually regained it all. I know the program works and need to get back to it. As to that last sentence -- as of 4/3/11 I'm using the PT cheat system to try to ignite more weight loss.


Married; 34; Mom to a sweet and energetic 18 month old :-)





I am a 53 yr old single woman recently engaged for the first time. I had WLS Nov 2010 lost 90 lbs and have been gaining weight. No surprise am sabotaging myself with poor eating choices and No exercise. I have gained 8 lbs and could probably gain it all back if Idon't get Back on Track asap. I have been reading everything on PeerTrainer since I found this sight yesterday ( while looking to download workout music) and I can't wait to join your tem and get started. thanks


I am 44 years old and have been overweight all my life....Underwent a gastric bypass in 2002 and lost nearly 200 lbs. Since getting married three years ago, I've slowly put back on 30 lbs. I have literally tried everything to lose weight...but as I've gotten older...it has become nearly impossible to lose weight....I seem stuck!





35 year old single momma. Striving to improve my health by improving nutrition and getting active. Enjoy rollerskating, walking and volunteering with youth!





I'm 52. My current weight is 179.2. I'm married. I have no kids. I teach so I am busy and stressed and don't get a lot of sleep for 9 months of the year. I like to do things like bike, walk, hike...but I live a pretty sedentary lifestyle inbetween walking, riding etc. Essentially I am a lazy person who likes to relax and read and surf the web more than exercise. One thing I really hate doing is "cooking". I don't eat fast food, I am a coffee addict (quad shot cappuchino or double Americano's only). My downfall is sweets (chocolate, ice cream, chocolate).





I'm an engineering manager in product engineering at General Motors. My children are grown and I've recently divorced. I'm looking for a new start and a healthier lifestyle.


42, mother of two girls (10 & 6), work full-time in Admin.











34 year old working in higher education development...





I've been less active this past year and am ready to get moving!!!!





50 y.o. woman; weight struggles most of life, but lost 100 lbs in high school, so confident I can do it again. Sedentary job, but job permits going to gym, so I want to take advantage of the freebies!








Just turned 50 and feeling great about my future. I am a stage III breast cancer survivor. When I went through a year of hell (chemo, radiation and 5 surgeries) I also lost all my ability to stay on top of my physical health. Almost 7 years later, I am ready to get back to being fit, vibrant and young. My health issues include severe arthitis in hips and knees and debilitating stiffness due to some meds I have to take. Here's great inspiration from other peertrainer groups: "Every change you make to improve your diet matters. You don’t have to be perfect and you don’t have to completely eliminate foods you enjoy to have a healthy diet. The long term goal is to feel good, have more energy and reduce the risk of cancer and disease. Don’t let your missteps derail you—every healthy food choice you make counts." Here is a great quote from a friend on Peer Trainer: I believe doing things slow and steady and realistic is the best. You will find that results will creep up on you. As long as you can say you are doing more today than you did last week you are on the right track. Maybe we are not all magazine models but you will find that one day your going to wake up and really notice some very positive changes and be so proud of yourself you won't be able to stop thinking of it! There's nothing like changing from the inside out! Do what you can in the context of your life. Don't overdue and burn yourself out. That's the way to yo yo backwards. Be accountable by logging and be honest. Just remember......In a month, you will be so much better off than all those who just talk about adding activity into their day! There is nothing like reflecting on how it used to be to keep you going.....or what is to come


I am married and have two boys in their late teens. I'd like a part time job because I have too much time on my hands.





I'm 28, massage therapist and horse trainer. I'm a pretty active person- I run and do triathlons- but I love food, probably to the point of being addicted. Have definitely been an emotional eater in the past, and though I have made progress to fix this, it still sneaks up on me. Right now my daily challenges are to control my portions, not mindlessly snack, and not eat in response to stress. I also have some GI issues that have haunted me for years, and would love to figure them out finally. If there is anyone around my age and weight (155) who finds themselves in a similar place with their food and fitness, I'd love an accountability buddy!!


I am now 56 -- and want to be as healthy as I can be. I tend to start and stop but am realizing that time is not on my side and its time to get a handle on my health once and for ALL. I love fitness stuff, but tend to be lazy! Married to my best friend -- have a wonderful son out of college and working in the big world.


I work at a maintenance office for the local school district. I have 7 kids. 2 are married, 4 are engaged, and 1 will always be the perpetual bachelor. Love them all and it's so awe inspiring to watch them fully take on adulthood. It was something I thought I'd never see. .





I'm 28, I have four kids, a baby that is 2 months. I'm a stay at home mom. I'm very active and competetive.


I'm a professional writer, entering a new phase of creativity. I'm very excited about my personal "Act 3" and want to be healthy and vital enough to enjoy reinventing myself again. 61 years old but am often mistaken for younger. Starting to think I look my age, and don't want to feel it. Fightintg hypothyroid, high cholesterol, and joint stiffness. Really want to detox and see if that helps. Would like to lose 20 pounds and see what happens. Husband cooks, and I have no will power.








61, active in hiking, biking, golf. I lost about 50 lbs last year over a little more than one year. Then went on a long binge of bad eating and regained 20 lbs. Most of the new clothes don't fit. I have tried over and over to re-start my previous program but fail within 2 to 4 days. Currently on about 2 weeks of steady success! Things are looking up!


42 yr old female with 2 grown children. Married 21 years to a wonderful man who won't budge off the couch. I quit smoking 4 years ago and took up running. However, I still ended up with 25 extra pounds.








I am 46 y.o., I have 5 children - teens and young adults. I am an attorney with my own small practice out of my home.





I am 53, and work as a Nurse Anesthetist, in Virginia Beach, Virginia. I have two sons, one 25 and living in NY and one 23 and living in Boston. I was a single mom for 15 years, and then remarried October 2006. My husband is awesome, but never watches his weight, although I have always been obsessed about trying to maintain mine. and I exercise everyday. I think the reason I have had so much trouble keeping my weight off is stress, not getting enough sleep and recently going through menopause.











I am a single working mom with 3 children.


I will be 44 in two short months. I have a wonderful loving husband and two grown children. My family is my career and passion though I also enjoy spending my days with my "work" family.


I am a 45 year old working mom with 2 young kids who I adore.





56 year old female, wife and mother of 2 sons, both now out of high school and living on their own together while continuing their education. Not nearly as much stress as when they were both in high school. Work full time at a desk. Have always been active, even if "just" walking.


I am a 59 YO wife, mother and grandmother. I have recently started a course to become a holistic health coach and would definitely like to lose weight before I begin as a coach. I did the cleanse in December with great results and feel it is time to repeat it. This time I would like to add back foods more slowly to see if I have issues with any specific groups. This seems to be the healthiest cleanse I have seen out there and I never felt hungry on it. I do plan to review all the precleanse information this weekend to be ready.


I am a mom, grandma, wife.....and commute to work for the past 16 yrs...so very busy. I am 5'6" and use to weigh 155 I am currently at 136 and want to be at 126 :) I have never ever in all of my 53 yrs done a cleanse so here I go!





70, married, work out of my home. As a result of Fresh Start Cleanse and all the tools I've learned decided to get my Real Estate License. I'm excited and energized. Will take my state exam within a month or so.








Have weighed close to, or even more than, 300 lbs. most of my life. Had gastric bypass in March of 2009 and through sloppy habits and compulsive eating, have gained weight again. To keep from completely sliding back, I am committing now to the cleanse as a way to turn myself around in a healthier direction.


I am married to a 'keeper' husband, have 3 grown daughters, 2 perfect grandsons. I realize my poor eating/lack of regular exercise habits are showing themselves in my daughters' lives. Need to be a better role model in these areas..NOW.

















58 years old, mother of wonderful 19 year old daughter, married 22 years. Generally healthy and happy but frustrated with changes in my body over last two years. Suffered broken arm with wrist and shoulder complications that made exercising difficult. Worked 6 months 3x/week with trainer - no results. Now desperate to try something new.








I'm a 56 y/o high school teacher. Married 30 years. I teach Family and Consumer Sciences (aka home ec), specifically foods and nutrition classes. It's a challenge being around food all day.








I am 63, married, retired, living a life I love! So much of my life is exactly what I want, I just need to find a way to live without food issues/addictions.


I'm a 24 year old Cardiac Surgical Technologist, so I see everyday what unhealthy eating habits (and bad genetics) do to your heart. I know that if I keep eating the way I am, I will end up in the same position as these people. Also, both of my parents are diabetics and I don't want to end up down the same path. I've already lost 25 pounds, but am struggling to meet my 40 pound weight-loss goal!





I'm male, 37, married with 2 children. I am one of the founders of PEERtrainer.





I am 41, married and have 2 beautiful teenage daughters, 13 & 16. I work from home as a freight broker and sit in front of the computer for 8 plus hours a day. 3 years ago I was at my ideal weight and felt great, then after a year the weight just crept back on, so it is time to fight back and keep it off!!


I am 59 and was effortlessly slim until I hit 45 when I suddenly gained 50 pounds. It took a while until my doctor found that I had a prolactinoma which plays havoc with your pituitary/hormones. I've read that people like me gain loads of weight and rarely lose much of it. I also suffer from insomnia and after a few horrid nights in a row I have no strength left over for dealing with food issues. My way of eating for the last 5 years has been based on Dr. Fuhrman's Eat To Live program and if I am ok I also use my treadmill for an hour a day - I do manage to slowly lose a bit of weight. The problem is that I am an emotional eater/binger, things have gone from bad to worse in the last year, and I have gained back every pound I lost. I need help with staying focused and not going for food/junk when off kilter.


39 married with no kids aIthough I treat my dog like one; enjoy working out ~ just need to get a handleon the nutrition part; desk job so not much moving around at work.





I am a 66 year old professor and researcher, two grown sons and 2 granddaughters.


I'm a 50 year old engineer with autoimmune thyroid disease. Dear Hubby loves to cook. 30 pounds later, I'm saying no and taking responsibility for my health. Lost half the weight so far!








Married with 2 kids. before kids was a runner and ran 4 marathons...then had kids and never lost all the baby weight! My babies are now 81/2 and 10...I now eat horrible and and am an emotional eater. Food now controls me! I want it to stop!


36 yrs, female with 2 boys (3 & 6 yrs). work part time at a yoga studio and want to be a teacher one day but don't have the body for it yet.


I live in Albuquerque with my 7 year old daughter, husband and 3 dogs. I work from home as a online marketing consultant and social media manager.


53 year old female, married 28 years, 2 young adult children. Have lost 60 lbs since August of 2009. Lost 20 pounds since January 9 when I did the New Year's Fresh Start Cleanse. Love to exercise and have an active lifestyle although it is easy for me to slip back into old, bad habits.


I'm a single, 48 y/o working professional woman. After a career change 10 years ago I'm finally hitting my stride in my new field. But I find that working hard and thinking hard leave me tired and weary. I usually get 8 hours sleep, but I still feel sleepy during the day. I've also lost my lust for fun and activity. It seems the only activity I'm willing to exert myself over is skiing, which isn't something I'm able to do every day (I do go a couple times a week, though). Other than that, I walk my dog briskly for about 30m a day but that doesn't seem to be enough to keep the weight from creeping up. Ol' Man Time is catching up with me!


I've gone through some big changes recently. I was a teacher, joined a religious community and was a nun for 2 yrs., left, moved in with my 83 yr old mother who has Alzheimer's and am taking care of her while looking for a job in a less than friendly job market. I'm really finding it MORE difficult to eat healthier and exercise, even though I have a lot MORE time. I seem to do better when there's more structure in my day or maybe it's just being a bit blue and adjusting to all the changes in my life. In any case, I had lost about 25 lbs. in the monastery and since moving back home, I've gained about 15 lbs. back. Whooops! Time to get back on track.


I'm 33 years old and I love to exercise, but I struggle with overeating/binge eating/emotional eating.


I set a goal about 4 years ago to lose 100lbs as kind of a joke. Then I started trying to lose weight and picked a "present" to myself for each 10lbs. I started exercising and tracking my food and I finally hit the first 10lbs and got my "present". Then I set another 10lb present and in a few weeks got it! Before I knew it I was at 40lbs...60lbs...100lbs!!! I have gained 10 back since hitting my goal 1 year ago but I'm working on getting it off now with Peertrainer!


I am 43 years old and the mother of to boys (ages 9 and 12). I am happily married and run a successful private practice as a Speech-Language Pathologist. I am very busy and often use this as an excuse to no pay attention to what I am eating. I have never really been "overweight", at least according to BMI charts. I am currently 5"6 1/2 and weigh 145, for a BMI of 23. However, I have been much slimmer in the past and feel much more content when I am between 125 and 130 pounds.


I am 59 yrs old, single for many years. Have 2 grown kids. OA drop out. Know I need support group to lose weight. Have had a weight problem most of my life. I still can hear my father telling me when I was 10 that people don't like fat people and that no one was going to like me.

















I'm a 35-year-old professional, a foodie and great cook who loves to exercise and is quite fit despite still needing to drop about 20 pounds. I have successfully lost 35 or so pounds on Weight Watchers over the past few years and right now am bouncing between 154 and 160. I want to break through 150 and ultimately get into the low 130s. It would feel like a miracle, but I know I can do it.

















have already made a lot of the transitions to organic, minimize grains and dairy - this just gives me a lttle more structure








I am a 55 year old female, mother of 3 and a nurse as a profession. Pretty healthy but still love the ice cream and pizza and bread but they don't love me....just looking causes the weight to go on....not heavy but I want to be healthy so I can enjoy my senior years!!!! HATE HATE HATE to exercise.....boring!!!! Hope to learn to love it!!!!!


I turned 50 this month, yikes. I am married and have two teenagers. In May 2011 I was diagnosed with RA. I was in so much pain and so exhausted that getting through my day was almost impossible. I currently am on some strong medication, and thankfully I am doing quite well.











40 yr old mother of 2. Work full time. Want a fit and healthy body without excess fat.


I'm 50, and I need to get back into my groove!


I'm a 40 year old working mom of 2 small children (3 yrs and 22 mo). I've been trying to lose weight since 2010 when I had my last baby. I did the first 30 lbs on Weight Watchers, but then lost focus, falling into the "tomorrow I'll get back on track" trap for many months. I did the PT cleanse in July and it really gave me a good boost. Looking forward to PONR next!


Self Employed, at the computer all day. I never used to be in a routine all the time and I find that routine has made me complacent. I don't pay attention to myself or my needs because my world seems to have grown smaller.





64 year old very active retired male living in Pleasanton, CA.





I'm a 34 yr old woman and a Health Coach. I became bulimic at 23 and have not purged in 3 years thanks to attending an amazing treatment center and having great support through my recovery process. I still struggle with emotional eating, cycles which seem to last about 9 to 12 months with only 2 weeks off in between. I feel SOO good when I eat "normally", and I have also never done a cleanse. I would love to be able to recommend this to clients.





60 years old, travel some for work, work a fair amount at home


I'm 58, former runner, dog lover, hiker, reader and in the process of a number of life changes. Been exploring raw, vegan, and juicing plans for a few years now and want to find the right combination that works for me.
