Feel like a veteran of the cleanse. First one last Sept this one I start a new goal to lose another 60 lbs. I'm married with no kids but I do have two beagles which are what I consider "my boys". My husband of over 25 years is a chef and my best friend. He is as supportive and encouraging as any girl could want. I am not working at the moment and have spent much of the last 5 years confined to a wheelchair in constant pain. That's getting better though! Today I can walk and get out and about in short spurts. The treadmill and my dumb bells are key to reaching my new goal. Peertrainer has been a life saver for me. Seriously!


I'm a 46 yearl old wife and mom. It is time to make a change. I'm tired of my stomach dictating what I can and can't do.


I am a 39 yr old teacher/wife/mother of 2 boys looking to shed 30lbs and feel better physically. I have struggled with my weight my whole life. Starting on the right track and then feeling too confident of my accomplishments and then slipping back into old habits. Growing up in the south and loving to bake and cook so that it tastes good is a challenge. I use to be really knowledgeable about nutrition and the how to's. I have felt out of the loop for so long it is overwhelming to even start. To look at me you would never know that I have run 2 Half-Marathons.


I am a 50 year old Wife, Mother, Registered Nurse and Wheaten Terrier lover. I have a fit energetic mentality being hidden somewhere again waiting to be let out. I have the knowledge of how to; but lack the consistency with any weight loss...I have the all or nothing mentality that has gotten me no where. I didn't get the best of my family genes and want to break the cycle.


Hi I am a 46 year old mother of a 5 year old and currently a education director for a NGO. I lost weight 3 years ago and became really fit but then broke a rib and gave up...literally gave up. I did a boot camp last year and completed it but was horrified at myselff. Now, a year later, heavier and out of shape more than ever, I went to the doctor in Feb 21012 and he prescribed 7 meds, lifelong for COPD, asma, etc. So, I chucked the meds in March 2013 and started a 30 day juice fast to kick my health back in! Goal accomplished! OH yes, and even as a Librarian and lifelong teacher, I am horrib-le typist, sorry. I get really motivated and then as soon as I start seeing results or start feeling better I tend to sabotage myself.(Point in fact, right after my blood tests and clear lungs, I stopped my juice fast..and ate EVERYTHING again!) I do well with mini goals and support AND accountability. When I was working with a trainer threee years ago and at my best physically in ten years, I used to receive daily and often hourly texts from him and it was enough to keep me going. Although guilt is my biggest motivator and I hope to get to a place where JOY replaces the guilt, Still working on the guilt and the feeling of entitlement!


I'm 59 and doing fine. Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. I Corinthians 10:31


Currently 49 and holding! I have struggles with weight my entire life and have losses and gained weight. I need to make permanent changes and stop the craziness of it all. I have 3 thin sisters and am tired of being the "frumpy" one. I like to have fun and keep a good sense of humor about life.


I'm 41 years old. I have three kids and 3 step kids. ages 8 to 24. I run my own cleaning business. I am the only employee. I like what I do but it is hard work. I have done it for 16 years.


I'm 28 and radically changed my life in the past year. I've gained weight the past few months and I'm looking to take it off, yet again. I'm also working on getting myself into grad school.


I am 39 years old and mother of 2 (11yrs + 8yrs). I am in a great relationship with my husband and keen to be a better role model for my children.


I'm 56, mother of two young adults, teacher. Need to loose 50 lbs and I'm happy to have found this site for motivation.





Male, 48, future author of both fiction and non-fiction, living in San Diego, California, where I lived 2nd-12th grades (born in Tennessee). In high school, I was both getting straight ‘A’s in gifted classes (and French), and a Mod—meaning I dressed in suits and Air Force parkas and rode around on an Italian scooter listening to mid-1960s Brit garage rock and ‘northern soul’ (e.g., Motown), hanging out with other teens all over the city, with friends who were in live bands. I have returned to this beachside resort city after three decades away. Overeducated with a bachelor’s in French and three graduate degrees--in international policy, public management (this one at the Harvard Kennedy School), and then a combination of the two--I was set to get a job at the World Food Programme working on food distribution in countries experiencing civil war, as a stepping stone to working at UN headquarters in New York for the Department of Peacekeeping Affairs or at the UN High Commission for Refugees headquarters in Geneva. (I swear this was not JUST so that I could meet Angelina Jolie!) I spent my junior year of undergrad in France and returned there for another half a year; worked a summer at the United Nations in Geneva; and another year as a professor in Bulgaria. I am unabashedly liberal, and spent a year in DC working in the Senator Kennedy’s office. I gravitate to alternative/indie music; HBO television shows (and The Amazing Race, weight-loss reality shows, and Kitchen Nightmares!), and adore anything romantic like “Downton Abbey.” My favorite pastime is osculation (“the art of kissing”). I love all animals, but am primarily a cat person. I have over 100 fiction (mostly historical and/or fantasy) and non-fiction (mostly political, of course) book concepts I am ready and able to do, once I finally build a routinized schedule of writing. But my health and fitness come first.


Wife, working mother of twins. I love God, my family, my sweet dog and the Texas Rangers!


NEW ABOUT ME: HEY!!! I'm melissa :) I'm a p90x ADDICT! I love it! I'm currently on my 3rd round, can't get enough! With p90x and clean eating I AM IN THE BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE! WANT ADVICE OR HELP? Message me! I'd LoVE to help you GET YOUR LIFE IN ORDER! ;) u can also email me @ melbel1811@gmail.com! OLD ABOUT ME (KEEPING IT FOR MEMORY JOGGING) My name is Melissa and I am very unhappy with my appearance! I am currently at my heaviest (i have ALWAYS been super skinny ..until college hit) I go into phases..i'll want to be thin and lose weight but I go about it wrong. I over-do it and excercise like a crazy person. then i end up getting sore and burnt out. I went from wanting to lose 10 pounds, to gaining 20! All because I hate working out and I have no motivation to work out because I think it's painful. REALLY painful. I want to start over and begin a NEW healthier LIFESTYLE....not diet.


I'm a freelance illustrator, female, 66 years old. I'm overweight and am really sick of it! I've lost and regained the same 20 or 30 lbs. over ad over.


43. Married and mother of 10 year old boy. I am 5'3" and 141 pounds.


Semi retired


Hi all. I am 45 years old. I want to focus on exercising, improving eating habits, and losing weight. I want to reach this first goal so that I can enjoy getting dressed for holiday functions and feel good about myself. I want to start out the new year with some success and set a new goal in January. I was separated last July after 15 years, and soon will be able to file for divorce. The stress of my new situation has had my weight and habits all over the place. I'm raising two kids also.


currently a binge eating- have binge eating disoder and weigh 250 pounds. i want to change and become healthy for life.


51 year old mother of 3 (15 yr, 13 yr, 11 yr), business owner learning to chill out


21 going on 22, single, no kids. Recovering "fat kid". (5'4" and 240 lbs at fifteen, my heaviest. I am now down to 150!) Hoping to discover the hottie in me, and get the amazing body I never had as a teeneager.





I am 44, sit way too much at work. I have lost 24 pounds since August following JJs plan and HCG drops off and on. I have once again hit a plateau, so thought this cleanse could help me move forward.


I'm an RN, working nights in the emergency room. I'm also a single mother to an amazing 14 yr old, who keeps me pretty busy. Since changing to nightshift I have slowly gained 35 pounds. Due to a work related injury and a car accident, I recently had my second back surgery. I used to be an avid martial artist and loved a good workout more than just about anything. Unfortunately, I will probably never be able to exercise that vigorously again. I'm now struggling with my weight, and all my old tricks just don't work anymore.


I'm a 24yr old female. I have a a 2yr old son. I'm also fat


Very active mountain girl, but can't seem to shake this weight. Need to work on healthy, regular eating and exercise rather than on again/off again healthy eating and fitness habits. I want to do this for life, not for a few days at a time. Tired of starting over!


Happily married for 34 years, work full time and love my job, kids are launched but no grandkids yet!


5'6" Trying to do paleo, but give in too frequently. Frequent CrossFitter and former runner getting ready to start back up.

I'm 65 years old, retired, and loving life! I have a husband, son, and 2 dogs (they are part of the family too!). My favorite sport is Pickleball, wonderfull because you get lots of exercise while having so much fun. My husband and I are currently using personaltrainerfood.com meals and doing well on it.

I am a wife and mother of two young children (aged 8 and 5). I work fulltime. I've had eating and weight issues ever since I can remember. I've lost weight numerous times but always put it back on. I am looking for way to lose the weight and keep it off for good!
