1. 42

2. Washington state

3. daughter 25, step daughter 19, granddaughter 5

4. I made it to my goal wieght but shcedule changes and medical issues have caused some weight gain so now I am working on getting back down to where I was.

5. Due to mental health issues with her mom my granddaughter lives with us full time. Since I work 12 hour nights this combination makes a regular exercise schedule difficult to maintain.

1. 39

2. NE Indiana

3. daughter 3, son 15 mths.

4. Started about a year ago after Dr. gave me the OK to start exercising after the C-section for my son. I've made progress overall, but it seems to be two steps forward, one step back. Or sometimes I'm just standing still--like since Thanksgiving. Hopefully, I'll start losing again soon, but I least I haven't gained back any.

5. I'd rather watch an educational program/documentary about science -- chemistry, physics, cosmology, geology, etc. than a TV show or movie for entertainment. It drives my husband nuts. lol At least we both enjoy football -- we usually watch it together even though our favorite teams aren't the same.

1.34
2. Midwest US
3. 2 girls - 11 & 3
4. I'm pretty much at my goal. I've been holding steady about 5 pounds from my goal for a fwe months, going up and down. I'd like to lose that last 5, but really, I've added some heavy lifting into my workouts, and what I'd really like is to burn that last bit of tummy fat, so the number isn't as meaningful to me anymore. I really struggle with no binging/snacking at least once a month, for a day or two at a time, though. I'm really trying to work on it. Social situations/parties are the hardest for me.
5. I'm pretty dorky.
