College student valuing education. Athletic, but not skinny. I like to go for jogs and play soccer. I like going on dates. I have a pretty messed up sleeping schedule.

I am a 26 year old Chicagoan who recently discovered raw foods. I am training for a half marathon this spring...and possibly a marathon (who knows!). I have about 10 lbs I would like to trim off - I feel a little lethargic all the time from carrying it around. Other than that, I like to run (kind of apparent), ride horses, do yoga, and read about nutrition and health. I recently did a raw food detox and loved it! I plan to do the same thing in April. As far as work goes, I am a patent attorney concentrating in pharmaceutical litigation.

I'm really into health and fitness and love running

I have been married for 9 years, I'm 28 yo and I weight 133lbs. I'm vegetarian. My priority in life is to help people learn about the bible by giving free bible classes. I'm a nurse, so I also enjoy helping people be healthier and to lose weight. Once in a while I interpret medical appts to have a break from nursing paper work.

I'm 33yrs old and used to be size 5/6 a few years ago. Since I hit 30 my metabolism has slowed down and now I'm a size 9/10. I know that this alone doesn't make me gain weight, but adding it to the inactivity of my life and not so healthy food I eat hugely affects it. I work in the learning and development field. I sometimes have to get in front of people as a facilitator and train them on various topics. I need to have the self confidence to be up there and focus on the topics at hand. I've been married for 10 years to my high school sweetheart, a wonderful guy.

I am 36 yrs old. I have been married 10 years this past July. I have 2 children from my first marriage, and 4 with my husband, for a total of 6 children. I have been overweight my entire adult life. I have also struggled with depression since I was a teen. My depression highs coinside with my weight gain, and I do alot of emotional eating. My top weight was about 245. A few years ago my mom introduced me to a way of eating called Natural Hygiene. The book I read that introduced me to this is called Fit For Life by Harvey & Marilyn Diamond. I have always been a large eater. My family use to call me hollow leg because about 20-30 minutes after eating a meal I would want to eat again, which I now contribute to the low nutrient foods I must have been eating. Whenever I've done this diet I have gotten down to around 170. I will go all the way this time, and really will make this my lifestyle. Right before I got pregnant with my last daughter I ate vegan for 1 month and then raw vegan for 2 months. I really enjoy it, but my husband and children don't really join me in eating this way. So there are still temptations all around me.

Can't seem to lose weight, ran for over a year and didn't lose not 1 single lb. stopped running for 4 months and gained 15lbs."whatever!" So here i am ..
