I am 28, married for 5 years and live in FL. I'm 5'4" and was in cheerleading in high school and college. I was a little above average weight in HS, but in college I actually started working out, which I hadn't done before. I began lifting weights and watching what I ate, and I religiously stuck to it, making it a lifestyle change. I maintained my weight loss for all 4 years, plus the year after until I got married. Then I stopped being so careful with food choices, and most important, stopped working out. I've gained 30 lbs in the 5 years I've been married. I don't fit into any of my clothes and am unhappy with myself. I'm miserable when I see pictures of what I look like now compared to what I looked like then. I have no excuse except laziness!

I'm married and have 2 children. I also have 3 dogs. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I love to cook and try new experiences. I want to get back to feeling sexy.

I am a 36 year-old living and working in the Tampa Bay, Florida area. Currently single with no children of my own, but I am very actively involved with my neices (ages 9 and 10). My career (executve in a global company) keeps me busy and requires me to travel quite a bit - which can be a challenge with weight loss. I have been struggling with my weight since I've been 12 or 13 years old. I lost approx. 70 lbs on Weight Watchers a few years ago, but gained it all back (plus quite a few more pounds). I recently re-committed to the Weight Watchers program to finally lose this weight.

I am a SAHM to 2 amazing boys 2yrs and 5 weeks old.

I am 31 yrs old married for 9 1/2 years with 3 beautiful children ages 10, 8, and 6 yrs old. I have lived in Florida for almost 2 years and since moving here I have gained about 30 lbs!!! I want to lose that 30 plus another 25-30 lbs. I mean we live by the beach and I am ashamed of being seen in a bathing suit!! I think my problem is that I dont eat enough!! So I am storing everything I DO eat as if in starvation mode. I eat maybe once sometimes twice a day. Sometime my only meal comes after work and after dark not even 2 hours before bedtime. This cannot be good for me. My hair is getting more breakage and all in all I dont feel like I am eating right at all.

im 24, i used to be very athletic however i was injured in a car accident and developed bad habits. now i just dont have the energy to do anything. i hate the way i feel about myself and i hate not being able to find anything that fits.

I'm 53. My metabolism has come to a grinding halt. I used to be the queen of the gym but due to foot surgery gone wrong I have a lot of trouble with exercise. I belong to LA fitness and go almost daily.

I can't do much in the way of exercise because of a mobility problem, but I can walk gently for about 10 minutes. Not much, but better than nothing.

I'm 31yrs old, I play Amtgard (live action medieval role playing) on the weekends, and I am a customer service/technical mentor rep in retail. I feel like I've always been overweight, and I lost a lot of weight, but became unemployed and fell out of good eating and exercising habits, also was not taking thyroid meds

Recently migrated to Florida. I work in the food industry in the corporate office. Three grown children. I still exercise almost daily before going to work but I have developed bad eating habits...particularly in the office. I'm also separated and "dating" - THAT is fattening!

I'm 52, widowed with grown children. I'm fairly active with hobbies that include sailing and scuba diving.

I am a single mother with two great kids. I work many hours and have a long commute. I recently left a job making quite a bit more money then I am now. I did that because I realized I needed to put an effort into getting healthy again.

I am currently 133 lbs. My goal weight is 120 lbs. I am a student in Tampa, Fl and work part time. I hope to reach my goal by the end of the year.

31 years ols always been fat. Looking to better my life and my health.

29, learning how to be divorced. Yes, I ate my husband now I have got to get rid of him (emotionally not physically) and stop carrying all this weight.

I'm 29, I'm a CMA, love to be active and do all sorts of things.

I am a 51 year old small business owner with my husband, and a seventeen year old daughter in college. While I home schooled her, I did not notice that I was ballooning up to 226 lbs on a 5ft 4inch frame. It was only after I developed asthma that I went on NutriSystem and lost 28 lbs. When I canceled the plan, I did not regain weight, but I did not continue to lose. A diagnosis of pre-diabetes in Aug 09 shook me into action. I have lost 30 lbs in 6 months, so I am half way there. I am giving myself a further 6 months for the rest. I believe slow and steady is the way to go.

26 in March and looking to lose a lot of weight; primarily so hubby and I can start a family in the next few years.

I'm a Goverment I.T. Professional and Certified Personal Trainer in the Lakeland/Tampa area.

I'm 26 years old & just moved to Tampa from Tallahassee. I was up there for school & then stayed because I got a job & into a long term relationship. The relationship wasn't healthy & somewhere along the way I lost myself & let myself go. My weight has always gone up & down. Usually from really heavy to heavy back to really heavy. I moved to Tampa because of a new job & it gave me the opportunity to be closer to family. I left the bad relationship & am working on getting myself back. I've already started working out & losing weight & I feel better already. I just know I have a long way to go & can use all the support I can get.

I am a 62 year old woman, about 60 lbs over weight. I've lost it before. The hardest for me is keeping it off.

I am a 38 year old mom of a three yr old boy. I am also a special education teacher and I do special needs minisrty at my church.

I am 19 years old with a 20 month old. Since I had him I have had a major problem losing the weight I put on during pregnancy. I just want to be comfortable with myself again and not worry about my size.

I am a college student. I also work two jobs, and I take care of my elderly parents. I also take care of my older brothers and my nieces and nephews.

I am 44, married, with a 23 year old daughter still at home. I am a full time student working on my bachelors and actively job hunting in my new career field.

I am a 30 year old mother of 3 and have been married for 9 years. I am having issues jump starting my weigh loss and I am having problems staying focused and motivated. I tried working out with my friend but.... we are no longer friends and working out alone sucks :) but im going to try it anyways....
