1. What's your top weight, current weight and target? 194 was my highest, I weighed 153 when I weighed myself two seconds ago, and my target weight is 112.

2. How tall are you? 5'8"

3. What's your family situation? I have a mischievous husband of two years that is currently overseas, and two very naughty cats. Both boys.

4. Where do you live? Everywhere!!!! Currently Southeast VA, but probably HI or NC within the next year. We move a lot.

5. One GOOD book? Small Gods by Terry Pratchett

6. One GOOD song? Twist of Cain - Danzig

7. One GOOD TV show? CHOWDER!!!!!! ...I don't watch anything but cartoons.

8. One awesome food you don't want to live without? Cheese. And I refuse to live without it. I'm eating cheddar cubes right now.

9. One weightloss lie you've heard? Back in ballet we used to do this crap called the "master cleanse" before performance weeks. I guess if you're constipated or overeat all the time it's worth drinking that nasty crap, but most of us were terrified of food and hardly ate anything besides grapes and water anyway, so there was nothing to "cleanse" and I never lost the 20 pounds it promised to make me drop. Didn't stop me from doing it 7 times a year.

10. The best tip you've received with regard to long lasting slimness? I got sick trying to stay on a 1400-cal-a-day lean protein and limited carb diet. Come to find out that I don't have the metabolism to process fats and protein, so I stick to a high-carb low fat diet. It's worked wonders for me and I get to eat everything I like.

Default new to featherweights hi!

Hi, I'm a new member, 51 years old. I've got an 8 year old son and since my husband is a bit older and had kids before, I'm delighted to also be a new grandmother.

My father (who raised me) is a weight obsessive and frankly its a wonder I've only felt moderately weight challenged. I could easilly have ended up with a major eating disorder given how he views weight. Instead I've always been about 10 pounds (make that closer to 20 pounds since childbirth at 42) overweight.

I don't eat anything that walked on the earth. Fine with eggs and fish.

I'm working the Beck program, together with a eliminating bread, pasta, alcahol and deserts, and portion control to try to get and keep it off. At 5'5" my post pregnancy high is 165, and I'm currently 159 (on the way down). I've lost a few pounds in the last 3 weeks of reading the book and working my own excercise up from 20 minutes 3-4 days a week to 45 minutes 5 x a week (elyptical trainer and or walking). I'm off for a week of family camp, with daily yoga for dear husband and myself.

I'm an avid reader and given my choice would simply sit on my butt all my waking hours reading quality fiction. But I do feel better when I move more.

Default Hi all-

After lurking forever I'm going to try to be active here, this site has helped me so much!

1. 165/135/120
I went from 104 to 165 while pregnant with my firstborn and never have gone below 135 since, except for about a month during which I was breastfeeding and pregnant (little did I know) at the same time. A very exhausting way to drop weight!
2. 5'4"
3. Married mom to two teenagers, house full of animals, run a business from home.
4. In beautiful Peachtree City, GA USA
5 This summer my daughter and I read all of the 'Twilight' series of books, they were great light summer fun books about a dreamy vampire who falls in love with a regular girl.
6. My most recent favorite new song is by Mika, 'Love Today'. For the full effect watch the video on youtube, it's bouncy and fun to walk to.
7. Our cable just got cut off and I won't pay to restore it until I can get digital installed. No big deal but I do miss TV! I'm waiting for Battlestar Galactica to start again, Lost is great, I just got a box set of a show from the BBC called Spaced that's really funny if you get a chance to watch it, it has all the Shaun of the Dead guys in it.
8 My favorite food is my downfall - bread. Not bagged sliced bread. No, I love freshly baked no-knead bread, baguettes, breakfast bread with raisins and nuts, banana bread or cinnamon rolls, garlic bread... the list goes on and I'm good at baking them all, so I have had to stop for a while!
9 The biggest lie? Any of those stupid after pictures in magazines, on tv etc.
10. The best tip I have realized is that it takes at least a week for something like exercise to become a habit, but missing just one or two days breaks it. So even if you're sick try to at least get on the treadmill at a low setting for 10 minutes, just to not get out of the habit.

Hello everyone,

1. What's your top weight, current weight and target? Top was 171, current weight is 158, and target is 150. The target is pretty arbitrary, I may find when I get there that I still want to lose more. I think getting under 11 stone (154) will be a big milestone.

2. How tall are you? 5'8".

3. What's your family situation? Living with my boyfriend and a flatmate. My boyfriend's only recently moved in and it's great. No kids yet.

4. Where do you live? London.

5. One GOOD book. So hard to choose - I love reading. I'll say anything by Jane Smillie.

6. One GOOD song. Another difficult one. Sweet Thing by Van Morrison - a great song about looking forward to better times.

7. One GOOD TV show. Buffy.

8. One awesome food you don't want to live without. My boyfriend's chocolate cake.

9. One weightloss lie you've heard. Premade low-fat food is good for you.

10. The best tip you've received with regard to long lasting slimness. Anyone can exercise - even if you weren't good at sport at school.

1. What's your top weight, current weight and target?

My top weight was 145 - argh, all those late night college pizzas and crappy cafeteria food.
My current weight is 135.
My goal weight (for now) is 120. I say for now, because I have a small frame and might shoot for 115 or 110. We'll see, I haven't been that thin in years!


2. How tall are you?

5' 4" which is quite the accomplishment given the fact that my mummsie is only 4' 11".

3. What's your family situation?

Married - 2 years on October 25th! At that stage where all of our friends have kids, but we're not quite ready and they need to learn to mind their own business.

4. Where do you live?

Suburbs of Chicago.

5. One GOOD book.

Recently, I kind of like The Host. I don't normally go for the science fiction stuff, but it was pretty good.

6. One GOOD song.

Oooooh, just one?!?!? Ok, Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd.

7. One GOOD TV show.

Lost!!!! I can't wait until it comes back!

8. One awesome food you don't want to live without.

Gee, just one?!?! In that case, it's an imaginary super food that doesn't exist yet in which cheese, chocolate, and peanut butter are all combined.

9. One weightloss lie you've heard.

Ugh, Metabolite (or life, I can't remember which one). That was a huge mistake in college!

10. The best tip you've received with regard to long lasting slimness.

That it's not a diet, it's a way of life.
