I am a 49 year old high school teacher. I have two teenaged daughters - 17 and 19- and my sweetie of 27 years. I live in the countryside and have a lot of interests reading, piano, dancing, hiking, biking, meditating and creative things.
I am a 48 year old working mom. Two boys, ages 10 and 8. My partner and I have been together since 1991. With the help of PEERtrainer, switching to Eat to Live eating and began running. I lost 30 pounds in 6 months. In 2010 I was diagnosed with celiac and switched to the gluten-free diet. I have regained some of the weight I originally lost and know that I will always need to be mindful of my eating and exercise habits.
Married with four kids (11, 9.5, 8, and 6), age 46
I am 29, and I just went back to college to finish my studies. Gained 7 lbs in the first semester; it's a terrifying experience. Is this the cost I have to pay for education? I am a big emotional eater and eat to procrastinate. Ready to get serious and loose those pounds.
I am 49 and have two boys - 11 and 8. I have been married and have lived in RI for almost 15 years. I have been working from home for the past 8 years. I was super active prior to getting married - ran in a couple marathons, dance classes, biking. I even took 25 mile bike rides until I was 7 months pregnant!! After my 2nd little guy came along can't seem to lose more then 5 or ten pounds - and then the dreaded winter comes!!
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.
Almost 45 year old, married with 3 teens (17 yr DD, 16 yr DS, 12 yr DS). Have been on Atkins with a primal leaning for over a year. Have binging issues big time. I sort of sabbotage my diet every few weeks and get very frustrated.
Love to exercise and try to do so at least 5 days a week. Can stay for weeks off "bad" foods but then go and eat 10000 cals without hesitation of all the foods that make me sick.
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 have 7 children, with 4 at home. I teach at Bible Study Fellowship every Monday night. I am married to a 6-ft tall husband who can lose weight by simply thinking about it and who looks tall & slim. I am short & am starting to look fat, so I really want to do this to stay in shape.

I am 39 and getting married for the first time in Hawaii. Hopefully a baby will follow the marriage.
I’m 48 years old and I have been doing to yo-yo diet routine since I got out of high school sports. I have always been a very picky AND emotional eater with horrible eating habits. I realize that my eating habits are taking a toll on my life and sapping my energy. I would like to prove to myself that I can feel so much better if I change my eating habits. I had Lyme disease a few years ago and I have reoccurring joint pain as a result. I like to exercise and I walk for at least an hour every day but am still obese. I want to stop the gain-lose cycle and find healthy habits that will lead to feeling better and losing weight.
