First name: Karen

Geographical location: Huntsville, Al

Age: 24 (25 in September)

Marital Status: married to my best friend and hero

Children/Ages: none

Occupation: Housewife, currently. I'm Canadian, living in the US with hubby, working on getting my green card. Can't work til I'm approved.

Pets: My cat, Ginny (she's a little monster, but so awesome). Hubby's two cats, Chocolate and Peanut

Hobbies/Interests: Bowling, unique music, reading, board games (especially backgammon), swimming (the goofing off kind, not the doing laps kind)

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: August 1st, 2012

Starting Weight: 302

Present Weight: 295.8

Goal Weight: 120-130

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: PCOS (most of my fat is in my stomach area and it is SO hard to get rid of it there), exercise limitations due to a semi-weak heart, bad back, bad hips, bad foot.

Following any specific plan: General low carb eating. Current limit is 80g of carbs a day, will lower that as needed later on.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I don't know. I just woke up one day and realized that life is way too short to be in constant pain and worse, hate yourself. I love my life, but I hate how I look and feel. The only thing keeping my life from being absolutely amazing is my weight and how I see myself. I will not allow that to be the case anymore. I am no longer willing to hate myself when I know I deserve better. I am no longer willing to be unhealthy and in pain when I know it is not necessary. I just...woke up one day and realized (for the first time in my life, emotionally as well as logically) that I deserve to be happy.

Anything else you would like to share with us: As of today the first 5 pounds are gone! Woohoo!

Eye/Hair Color: greyish-blue/strawberry blond

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Summer 2012

Starting Weight: 263

Present Weight: 228.5

Goal Weight: around 160

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Snacking and overeating when I am stressed or sad. Not getting enough excercise in the winter months (it gets dark and cold here!). Developing new recipes, especially baking....and eating too much of the results!

Following any specific plan: Exercise, generally keeping track of calories, trying to keep a journal.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I was so surprised to see how high my weight had gotten. I began to notice I was tired, and not getting things done as quickly or effortlessly as I had done in the past. I got tired of only having a few outfits, and having a dresser of clothes I was not wearing. Most importantly, I don't want to go into my 40s so heavy and face health risks.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Thank you to 3FC members! You are helping me stay on track!

Starting Weight: 317

Present Weight: 310

Goal Weight: 160...though that seems low to me despite medical recommendations, so it may be upped to 175-180

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: the fact that I HATE cooking/preparing food. It's part of why I was so much better at the weight loss in college.

Following any specific plan: Calorie restriction for now, may change after the wedding when I have more time/finances.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm getting married and possibly might have children in the future. Even though I want to be healthy for me, I want to be around for my loved ones too.
