I'm 44 and married with 2 kids, a 7 year old and a 5 year old. I have been battling weight gain all of my adult life, but have gained 50 pounds (YES, 50!!!) since getting married 12 years ago. I don't really even know how this has happened, but it is ridiculous at this point. This weight gain has gotten so out of hand and it's time for me to start taking care of myself again.


I'm 66 right now. As I mentioned above I have Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I use the Fatigued to Fantastic supplements (sometimes) I am a cancer survivor and a domestic violence survivor. I have lived in Texas for 30 years this time. I learned that I have to successfully make changes by a holistic approach. That is the mental, emotional and spiritual have to be addressed as I do the physical actions. I have been single for 14 years. So I'm used to not being seen by men and not being considered as a person to date. This means I can be assured that I will not do this for the sake of becoming sexually attractive. That has been one of the reasons to stay fat - it has felt safer. I want to address this as I lose the excess weight.

23 year old university student, so making healthy choices is my biggest challenge when there is so much junk food around me all day. Two years ago I lose about 40 pounds, but over the past year I have gained 10 of it back, so I am hoping to lose that ten, plus another, and also change my overall eating habits.





I am 42 year old and a wife, mother, inspiring writer and a confessed nutter butter:) I enjoy yoga, pilates, tennis, cycling and camping. I love to read and write. My favorite quote from my book I am writing right now is: "In one day, how many sorrows can the Divine place on one woman's heart." I have 65 lobs to lose and pray that this is finally the last straw for me.





















































I'm 58 and I want to live to 80 without major illnesses, etc. I need to take better care of myself to realize this goal. I also want to feel better-more energetic and strong.















































I am 55, have been obese most of my adult life and every time I would shed the weight it would come back and more joined it. When I gave up smoking, I decided food would replace it, That was a lot of years ago.. Now I want to learn a new way of living..

31 Married & Mother of 1. Looking for a friend to help motivate each other.


I am a 19 year old busy college student. I have never been happy with my weight and now that I am nearing on the 190lb mark it really has started hitting me that I need to do something...





I have struggled with weight since my 20's and am now 52. I've lost 80-100 lbs. six times in my life and have to do something different. What's the definition of insanity???

I am 72 years old. I just went back to work after 7 months of recovering from a pulmonary embolism. I am a public defender, love my job and really hope that eating clean, eating real food, and losing weight will allow me to get off oxygen. A portable oxygen concentrator gives me the ability to do my job. However, it slows me down, is awkward and I feel old with it. I . know, I am old by most people's standards but I didn't feel old before this happened.





























I am 30 y/o, single and trying to get back on my feet after a huge life move last summer. I struggled with drinking last year due to an immense amount of stress at work, hence the weight gain. I want to feel and look as healthy as I did several years ago. I have never been above 200lb in my life until recently. It is an awful feeling.

Packed on 40lbs and finally had enough after struggling this past year. I enjoy a wide variety of hobbies, including gardening, quilting, crafts, and woodworking.





I'm 22 years old and I have two jobs. I'm pretty busy but I love running, yoga, and hiking. I like to workout, but I have trouble eating right. I crave junk food like ice cream and chips.





























I'm 70 years old, am, obese and have chronic health problem ... diabetes ... for last 20 years. PTSD and depression set in quickly and it isn't just mental. Chronic pain. Sleepless nights of pain. I am addicted d to genealogies and that really messes up my health schedule because it is time consuming.

Depressed at this time due to my weight











I had my first baby in September, 2011. I am basically at the weight I was before I got pregnant, but that was not a healthy weight for me. I was in grad school, and not taking very good care of my body and gained about 30 pounds within a year and a half. Prior to that I had lose 20 lbs using weight watchers, but that had been a slow and painful process! Not to mention it didn't last very long (I gained all the weight back and then some after I got married). I am so tired of feeling bad about myself, and feeling self conscious. I also want to have baby #2 soon, but want to get really healthy before I get pregnant again so that I am at a better starting point than I was last time.

i am a flight nurse. a mother of 3, grand mother of 3 and married for the 3rd time. 3 seems to be a good number for me


I am a nurse at rehab hospital. I have one daughter and a wonderful grandson. I want to be able to play with my grandson so that is my ultimate reason for losing weight. I have lost 140 pounds once before but dur to an injury to my knee I gained most of it back.


I have been overweight practically my whole life. After I had my boys I finally got motivated and lost down to 145lbs. Then I became unemployed, and went to school full time to earn my associates degree. My weight stabilized around 160lbs. Before I even finished my degree I landed my dream job. But not quite my dream hours, 12 hour rotating shifts. I became too busy or too tired to work out and fast food became the normal. All down time was spent in a bar or a bottle. This has gone on for long enough, two years too long. Since the start of the new year I have lost almost 10 lbs, I have gotten on my treadmill more days than not and I an spending my down time actually relaxing. 140 he I come....





I am 43 years old and mother to 3 awesome kids. My oldest two are out of the house and a 10 year old at home. My husband is supporting me in all I do so with that I will achieve what I set out to do. To get back to the real me. I have let myself go (and let myself down) over the last few years. I have had a huge reality check when I weighed in at the gym and was up to 174 pounds, the last time I weight that much was when I was pregnant. I am ready for a change both mentally and physically. I know it will take dedication and persistence but I want it so bad that I will make it happen.








I'm a 32 years old, married without children, I am self-employed and have allowed the lbs to creep up while working at home the past few years. Since I'm really petite, my goal is to weigh around 115 and to gain muscle and be overall healthier.

I'm a 45 yr old married mom of a daughter (senior in HS) and son (6th grade). I work full time (desk job). I do love to workout luckily, but I also love to eat. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease at the end of 2010, which helps me to eat somewhat clean, but I still tend to overinduldge in certain things, particularly liquid calories such as Starbucks and adult beverages ;-) I'm working on it!


I am 59 yr old female married o children. Enjoy beading, my 5 pomeranians and collecting crystals. Losing weight is practically a hobby since I have most diet books ever written and tried most of them. I lose weight feel deprived and gain it back, Wish I never tasted pepsi, chips, cake and fried foods. If my lifestyle was just the healthy non processed health foods I know I would never had a weight problem. Of course I probably have emotional issues causing me to choose all the crap foods.

I was very fit as a teenager, active and could eat whatever I wanted. After I married and had my first child, I realized I had put on 100lbs! (yeah yuck!) I started dieting right away, but 4 months later I was pregnant again. I managed to keep the gain down to about 30lbs but had put on all that i'd lost. After my daughter was born, i managed to lose most of the weight, and we decided to try once more for a boy. (yay its a boy!) once again i had put on about 60lbs. from then til now. 17 years later. I am 39 and about 210lbs. I am 5'10" so can tell myself ( i carry it well) but i dont! I hate mirrors with a passion. I have tried many things over the years, some with some success, some without. I know I have bad habits that I need to break. ( a bottle of wine when i get home from work, is one of those things). So anyway, i'm here to see what this is about. I also am going to a weight watchers meeting this weekend, I'm looking forward to seeing what that is like.

I work full time, and have a family. I lost 40 lbs and kept it off until the end of 2012 when my weight crept back on.

I don't have the desire or motivation to work out or eat right.

I am 77 years old and over a period of 50+years have tried every diet there is. WW is the best, always lost weight but never kept it off. I would slowly creep back to my old eating habits. I am a great-grandmother and it may be too late for me but I hope someone can give me some good ideas. I am gradually losing my health, but up until 5 years ago the only problem I had was heart disease and it never slowed me down too much. But, wow, passing that 75 year mark and I am on the downhill slop.

Ive gained at least 75 lbs in the last five years. No one recognizes me. I also have the Cinderella syndrome... I look in the mirror and think Im FINE just curvy full figured woman...! Prob is I know im not. AND-im unhealthy at risk for a few heath issues im sure! Im REALLY active going out - doing all kinds of things! But im NOT active in physical fitness they way I want to be. I've worked out my entire life and know what it takes im JUST LAZY! Im a former small biz owner too. Kids Culinary Adventures dot com. I just sold in July and seriously feel like being a small biz owner destroyed me - I'm BURNED OUT! After six months into retirement Im bored and Im sorta rested up and THINKING about getting back to the GYM! but really wish I had some buds to share this journey with! I need a good accountability program - LOL











I am going to be 64 years young this year. I worked in medical billing for 30 years. I have three adult kids and six grandchildren. Forced into retirement two years ago when I couldn't find a job and I'm sure it was due to my age. Love being available for my grandkids.











im daniel. im 21 years old. my friends call me bigdan.im a country kid. grew up on grandmas sweets and now that im older i can see it wasnt good for me.im the biggest sibling out of my brothers and sisters and my lil sister just had a baby she wants to work out with me. my lil brother on the other hand is fit as he can be. he coaches little league football, has a wife and kid, a full time electrician job and he plays professional arena football with a traveling team. i guess im trying to say i think my weight is stopping me from becoming more of the successful older brother with a family of his own.























I’m a 38 year old mother of one. I’ve been over weight all of my life, but over the last month or so, there is drive within me that I haven’t had before and I really want to make a change. Mostly for myself, but I need to be able to keep up with my beautiful, energetic and active three year old son. He keeps me hoping every day. I'm an


















































I'm a single teacher with 3 dogs. I love doing animal assisted therapy with them and spending time outdoors. Right now I'm on a crocheting kick, though I also love reading, quilting, and learning new things. Unfortunately, I'm an emotional eater. I know how to lose weight, I know what works for me, I just need to do it.


I've been trying to lose weight for almost 4 years- unsuccessfully. I used to exercise 1-3hours 5 times a week at a weight of 115lb. After the dance studio closed and my volleyball team disbanded, I never got back to exercising regularly. I occasionally go jogging for 30-40 minutes but I can't motivate myself to do it more often since I don't enjoy it. Unfortunately, I also started to eat less healthy or rather eat more sweets than I did when I was 115lbs. Thus, I gained 37lbs in the course of 4 years.

I am 51 yrs. old, married to my husband Steve for 30 yrs. We are empty nesters, we have a daughter 23 who lives in Manhattan, NY & is working on her first play. She majored in Theatre Directing. Our son is 21 & is a Junior in college, he plays hockey & so we attended all of his games that we can. He goes to St. Louis University. I have had excess weight since 1985 when I experienced depression & went into a Stress Unit for six weeks. The medication I was taking, caused me to gain 60 lbs. in 6 weeks. Then on two separate occasions I was put on new antidepressants that each caused me to gain 30 lbs. in 30 days. So that is an additional 60 lbs. bringing total weight gain due to medication & poor eating habits to 120 lbs. I did not keep on all of this extra weight but at least 70 lbs. of it. My weakness is sweets & ice cream. I am an emotional eater. I cannot have sweets in the house because I will devour them within a couple of days. It has been suggested that I go on a gluten-free diet which would give me more energy & reduce my mood swings. Even though I know this would be helpful, it is still a little overwhelming to me at this time.
































I'm almost 43 years old and from Ontario, Canada. I'm a father of 2 awesome kids (11 year old daughter and 8 year old son) and husband to one incredible wife. A few years ago, I let myself get as heavy as 300lbs (I'm 6'2"). I did manage to get down to 250 but poor choices have plateaued me. I am now re-focused and determined to not only lose weight, but to change my lifestyle and become a healthier person. I deserve it and my family deserves a dad who can be active WITH them.

I work in the music field, but my passion is my family. I love to bake, which is why I'm in this predicament! If I really wanted to be honest, I'd say I love to eat too; and not just baked goods, just about anything.


I am a 53 year old wife married 32 years, mother, grandmother, Registered Nurse who has been on almost every diet imaginable. I am great at losing weight but even greater at gaining it. I truly have not been successful in losing weight in 7 years. I just have had no motivation. This needs to stop. My knees bother me, my back hurts, and I have this belly I never had before. I need to reclaim my body.
