I'm 56, a Seattle writer (a very sedentary job!), happily married, one grown step-daughter. My work is extremely stressful, but also rewarding.I have a lot of good friends, and enjoy literature, music, baseball, movies, life. In the past several years I've gone through a difficult menopause, and now I have recurring stomach problems -- IBS, reflux. It's very difficult for me to look at a picture of myself, without thinking how terrible I look. I'd love to someday have the "outer" me correspond more with the "inner 'me. I need, and hope to find here, some regular support and inspiration, and to support others in return.

28 yo female in Seattle, WA- insisting that I don't enter my Thirties overweight.. I've had a wonderful stint with Weight Watchers that produced a weight loss of over 35lbs, but thought I could do it by myselfs and needless to say! I'm back..

I love living in Seattle and I traveling around Latin America.

I have been trying to lose weight for years and after a week or two I lose my motivation and have a very hard time getting back to it. I design kitchens for work and work from home. I have a lot of sitting time.

I finally got sick of not being completely happy with who I am. And now all that talk about losing weight beore, I guess I'm finally doing it. I gained over 70lbs about 4-5 years ago, and I'm finally ready emotionally to lose the weight. I can feel that this time, I'm really going to do it. That's part of the reason I joined this site. I realize now that trying to lose weight, is like trying to stop an addiction. You NEED a support system just like an alcoholic would. ***UPDATE*** So true....why did i leave?

I'm 30 yrs old, I live in Auburn, WA. I'm tired of being fat because I know I can be cute if I could just get there!

32 yr old divorced mama of 3 boys. Making a brand new start and getting in touch with the "me" I lost years ago.

I'm a training consultant and write books about web development. 44 yo woman who lost 60 lbs and has gained 40 back. I've got to get my life under control and stay with what I KNOW makes me feel good. I'm doing this because I feel great when I eat right. It's not so much an aesthetic thing although that is nice too.

I am a 58 year old female lawyer that has had a health issue that contributed to a slow weight gain over the past 10 years. I need to reverse this trend despite having to take hydrocortisone for the rest of my life. Hydrocortisone tends to put weight on, especially in the stomach area.

I'm a 44 yr old divorced male. About 4 months ago I started gaining weigh like crazy. I've never been skinny but put on an additinal 30 lbs. I've got to do something and my brother lost 20 lbs on a diet so I'm going to try as well.

Want to believe that I am capable of loosing that weight ... but I have some major issues ... I love to cook, I love eating, I have never been able to follow a diet (actually never have really tried so very much open to trick here !!!) ... I am a working mom with two young kids who whises days would have 48 hours ... Husband is no better than me on the subject ...

I am 29 and I weight TOO much! I need to get motivated and drop 50 soon. I am embarrassed that I have let it get this out of control! I need to take charge before it is too late!

37 year old native Seattle gal. Happily married attorney working for government.

Turning 48 in a few weeks, getting divorced in a few months (more or less) - well, at least moving out, and have been going up and down on the same 10-15 pounds for years. I have a middle-school age son. Hmmm, what else. Well, more info will come out as the logs continue. If the logs continue...okay, AS the logs continue....

43 Mother of two boys one 15 and one 3. I am a cake decorator by trade. Wishing to find friends that can encougage one another.

23 year old writer. I've never really been in what I would call great shape and I want to get there while I can still consider myself young.

I am 30 yrs old and happily married. I have a very precocious 2 year old son. I am a stay-at-home mom and caretaker for my 87-yr old grandfather who has Alzheimer's. My husband works for Trader Joe's...need I say more? :o)

34y/o mom of two, married to a great guy that usually is good about keeping me motivated. I work full time as a RN at a local hospital.

I am a 37yo single man overweight and hoping to start losing weight and leading a healthier lifestyle.

Well, I'm presently a senior in High School but I feel like I'm on the path to a very dark place-obesity and depression. Anyway, I'm 5' 71/2" tall and I'm going on 160 pounds. I can't afford a gym membership or any expensive equipment so I'm pretty much limited to an old treadmill(that still works :)) and some other little things that I could use. -I'll be living with my parents through college -plan on going to Bellevue Community College/Bastyr in the Fall of 2010! So excited

I'm 20 years old. Last year, I lost around 58-60 pounds following a healthy diet and exercise regiment. Following a bit of an emotional crisis , over the past three months I gained 25 of those pounds. I am trying to improve my horrible relationship and understanding of food, and work on being happy both with my external and internal features.

28 years old. 5'9". Very active, but not great about controlling how many calories I am taking in. I have gone up and down in weight many times and know how to reach my goals, I just have to stay focused and commited to achieving my goal. I thrive well when I have support, encouragement, accountability, and a touch of competitIion. I recently lost 15 pounds and I am looking to loose another 30 pounds in the next 3 months. I love running, biking, swimming, and everything in between.

I'm a busy mom and full time student. I have been thin most of my life. After a few rough years I packed on 120 pounds. Yikes! I miss feeling good in my body.

A mom of one (so far...) who works part-time and fights chocolate cravings the rest of the time. I am turning 30 January 2012 and I am 90lbs overweight. I am determined to make 2012 the year I turn that around.

I started my weight loss journey in 2010, aiming to lose weight for my 40th birthday. I managed to lose over 20 pounds through diet, exercise and determination. Sadly, I have gained almost all of it back in 2011, as I was struggling with work, sick pets at home, etc. Not hitting the gym was the main culprit and the holidays really killed me. I accept ownership and will be on top of it this year!

Currently a size 8-10 who is much happier as a 4-6. Don't have a ton to lose but am disappointed in myself for really losing focus of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
