Just my husband and myself. My older daughter is ridiculously thin, and my younger daughter is on the high end of normal. Which I am keeping an eye on, to make sure she doesn't have the problems I did starting up.

My name is Oli, and I am a recovering fataholic.

My parents are not overweight, I am the only child and overweight. I am engaged to an overweight guy(who I am trying to get motivated to do something about it).

Last year at this time, I was morbidly obese, my husband obese and my son overweight. Now, I am obese, my husband overweight and my son has a healthy BMI. emoticon

Well, I'm the biggest :( and my hubby is about 50 pounds overweight. Fortunately our son isn't but I wasn't either at his age (he's 9) so with us eating healthier and walking together as a family then I hope it won't ever be.

My sister bounces up and down with her weight but never over 200 pounds. Rest of the family is skinny.

Me. I come from tall, healthy, high-metabolizing, beautiful women!! Even when I was thin, I used to feel like the ugly duckling!! And they are comfortable with me being a less than perfect version of them. I am not anymore!! I am ready to be a swan, even though I will be different!!

Most of us are overweight and those that were on the thin side a slipping into the overweight category we have diabetes on both side of my branches and cancer on my mothers side. I keep trying to say lets get healthy, but the upper generation (mom and uncles) just ain't having it. I'm gonna keep trying though.

We try and try again because we matter!

It is easier to count the number who are NOT overweight-- we are a very large family but I have been the biggest I think

One bite, one day, one pound at a time. Remember you are worth the effort!

Myself, two daughters, and a son, (all these are grown and in charge of their own food intake).

My husband is over by about 30lbs.

A grandson is at the high end of the chart the doctors check. The doctor has said "NO diets" for him. Cut back on treats, ice cream, pop etc. Take him for a swim, a walk or a bike ride a couple of times and week and get him to learn that exercise is part of life. He is four years old but I think with our family history this is the best way to handle it!

So the total in our family is 6 and a cousin in England so that makes 7 out of a family of 50ish members!

Watching salt intake also trying not to buy foods that have high fructose corn syrup, sugar, rice syrup, corn syrup, fructose, sucrose etc. in the first three ingredients.

No foods that have more than 3 ingredients that I can not pronounce.

If an item has more than 10 ingredients I put it on the Do Not Buy List as it is too processed.

I have 1 of 3 sister, my mom for my intial family. My 4 daughters are all thin as is my Husband. It is hard to be the only fat one in the household. My husband has never weighed more then 150 pounds and all of my girls have his figure. I worry about them as now they are in their late teams and early 20s

I have Vision Passion and Purpose, I can not lose.
One step and one pound at a time. I want to find the real me.

Susie and I used to be but thanks to spark not really anymore. Since my DH retired he has gained about 10 lbs all in his stomach which is not real good and my son who used to be a skinny minny is now overweight about 50 lbs. My youngest daughter who is a single parent could be on her way and could stand to lose about 30 lbs.My father was overweight and died of a heart attack. So I would say 4.
