Glad to help!


Dear God,
I never knew orange & purple went together until I saw the sunset last night--author unknown

My halo might split in 2 every now and then, but I can take it. I've got BIG shoulders--they hide the WINGS!

Hello everyone, I just wanted to give an update and a reminder to all who are participating in my study.

So far I have receive 31 responses out of the now 51 participants. This is wonderful!! I wanted to let everyone who has responded yet know that I will be accepting responses through Saturday, April 12 so if you still want your reponses to be included, feel free to get them in to me by then. If you can't finish it by then, I totally understand. Good news is with the number of responses I already have, my instructor said is great and good enough for me to complete my research. I however, want to give everyone the opportunity to have thier responses included.

Thanks again for all your help and I must say I have enjoyed reading all of the ones I've read so far and look forward to reading those I haven't gotten to yet.

Sincerely,

Natasha

I'd be glad to help you out too, if it's not too late, and you need more "subjects".

Thanks to everyone. I will be meeting with my instructor today to give him an idea of how many people are interested, get his signature on the review board's application and once the review board gives me an answer, I will email the questionnaire out to you.

Thanks again as I really do appreciate all your help.

Thanks, any help is greatly appreciated. I can totally relate to both of you. I thought I was overweight because I was heavier than all my friends. Looking back at my pictures, I wasn't overweight at all, just healthy. When I was in college I weighed 145-155 and I thought I was fact but I would love to be 145-155 now.

Katy, you know that's funny because my mom & uncle both were like toothpicks, my grandmom too but as they got older, they got pretty up there. My mom, mostly thanks to me. My grandmom's was thanks to medication, thyroid, undiagnosed diabetes (didn't find out about that until 6 years before her death).

I would be interested in filling it out. I wasn't obese as a child, but I always thought I was overweight. Just let me know if you want me to do it!

I wasn't overweight as a child, nor my brother, but our mother was, and she'd be willing to do your questionaire. I'd print it, give it to her, and send it back via email to you again, if you'd like?
Cathy
ps: on the biological side, her full brother(as opposed to half-brother) was thin as a rail. My brother & I were healthy as teens and both obese now, as well as our mother & uncle.

Hi all,
I'm working on my research project and was wondering if any of you would be willing to help me with it.
My research is on childhood obesity. The purpose of the study is to see if there is a connection between childhood and adulthood obesity. Personally, I was overweight as a child and now, I'm considered obese. The study will be strictly confidential and it's in the form of a questionnaire which would be emailed to you. I will not need names or anything like that as this is an anonymous questionnaire.
Right now I'm trying to get a feel for how many people would be interested in participating. Let me know if you are interested and if so, once everything has been approved, I will let you know if it's a go.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions please pm me.

Thanks,

Natasha
