    I'm 21. If i get 8 hours of good quality sleep, i feel great. I can live on 6-7. At 5 hours I wake up wanting to bite people.

    9-10 hours feel amazing, but I can function on 6 for quite a while if I have good weekend sleep. I'm 29 and have always been this way.

    27 and it's probably like 23.5 hours. I never feel rested anymore, even with 9.5 hours.

    My goal is never less than 7, I usually get that plus a little on work nights. Perfect for me to be rested, energized AND LOSE WEIGHT, I need no less than 9. Yes lack of "your perfect sleep number" causes you to put on weight and make it extra difficult to drop the weight. On work days I work 12 hours shifts plus travel time.....just not enough hours in the day to pull 9 hours sleep on those days.

    I am 56 and have hypothyroid disease....which requires more sleep as well. Maybe if I could sleep like Rip Van Winkle for 7 years I would wake up healthy and skinny!!! Wouldn't that be nice!

    Ooo melatonin = creepy sleepy. Gives me the most effed up dreams.

    I'm really lucky if I get 5 hours.

    I am 48. I get into bed by 8:30pm most nights (cue the partying!!) and I am awake and ready to hit the gym at 5am. So, typically I get 8 hours a night, but if I can get more, I am happier :)
