Hobbies/Interests: Art, photography, graphic design, reading non fiction, lifting weights

Height: 5' 10''

Eye/Hair Color: green/brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: september something

Starting Weight: 320 (possibly more)

Present Weight: 286

Goal Weight: 150 (though I am not really sure. The bmi calculator says I should be at 150 to not be overweight anymore. However, I have a personal trainer who did a million and a half tests on me. They said that if I had 0% body fat I would still weigh 156 because I have so much muscle. So their goal for me is 186. So well get there and see.)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I have to pick one? Possibly my family. They mean well. I'll do really well all day, and come home to find a poor boy, or giordanos stuffed pizza waiting for me. I dont want to be rude, so I'll eat it. But I am trying to eat really small portions of it now instead of scarfing down the whole thing and fries and coke etc.

Following any specific plan: Calorie counting with my fitness pal. Eating lots of fruits and veggies. Protein and good carbs in every meal. My trainer wants me to eat every two hours. I have been doing this and it's working so far. I never really feel hungry. The biggest problem for me here is making time to eat. A lot of times at work I dont get to take a break (I dont get any sort of scheduled breaks either.) Anything I eat has to be quick and easy to make. Also I have been trying to cut out a lot of the processed stuff etc.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Well, for starters I am not half a**ing it this time around. In the past diets I have tried were quick fixes and not life style changes. You name it, the lemonade diet, the soup diet, multiple smoothie diets, and pills etc etc etc. I have never really tried to do anything that made sense and could be maintained. Not to mention that I have incorporated exercise in this time.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I have been over weight my whole life. I couldn't figure out why my stomach gathered fat like it did. I found out at 15 that I had a medical condition called a bilateral hydrosalpinx. Basically my fallopian tubes were under developed and closed at one end and gathering fluid like water balloons. In turn, my body though I was pregnant, and "padded" my lower body as though I was. I had surgery to have them drained, one was 21 centimeters around and the other 24. After that I lost a ton of weight without even really trying. Then when I got pregnant with my son I had a whole host of problems and was on bed rest the whole time. I put all of the weight back on, then started working in the food industry, and put on more weight. The smallest I ever remember being as an adult was around 220. I wasn't tiny by any means then, still around a 14/16 but a lot better off than I am now.

Children: 18 year old son, 12 year old daughter

Occupation: work at home data entry

Pets: 2 dogs, 2 cats

Hobbies: reading, writing, spending time with family, walking

Height: 5'9"

Hair color: brown

Starting weight:363

Starting date:October, 2011

Goal weight: 160-170

Present weight: 304

Biggest hurdle:Myself. I am a food addict and I lose my will power and resistance to food every day!

Plan being followed: I had the RNY bypass surgery on August 14, 2012

What is different this time: I lost 30 pounds between 10/11 and 8/12 in prep for the surgery. I have lost about 30 since the surgery. This is my last chance.

Anything else: I have struggled with my weight my entire life. I am an only child with two older parents and I have two teen children. I have no choice, I NEED to lose weight. I have had limited success with the surgery because of my self-sabotage. I have pushed the limits and I fear that it is not working for me because I won't let it. The good news is that I am off all of my medication since the surgery. My blood sugars and blood pressures have remained stable. I need to allow myself to separate from my addiction to food in order to allow myself to become healthy and happy.I would appreciate any and all ideas and support.

Age: 25

Marital Status: Engaged

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Law Student

Pets: Jack Russel Mix- Bella & Chihuahua- Troy

Hobbies/Interests: Played college sports, still like to play intramural leagues when I find time, I am obsessed with makeup, and I love my little doggies.

Height: 5'6

Eye/Hair Color: Grey/Dirty Blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: I am actually planning on starting December 17th because I will be finished with my last law school final and moved back in at home.

Starting Weight: 240

Present Weight: 240

Goal Weight: 140

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Staying motivated

Following any specific plan: Low carbs has always worked best for me and diverse forms of exercise

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I am getting married in September and want to start out my new life (being a recent law school graduate and new wife) healthy and feeling better about myself.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Through college I never had to worry about weight gain because I played basketball and softball and would work off all the extra calories I was eating in our 2 hour daily practices, but since graduating I no longer have the steady exercise, and have continued to eat the junk that I used to eat plus I have so much added stress with law school. Those factors are what have contributed to my 60 pound weight gain in the last two years. I am tired of not being able to wear the clothes that I want to and ashamed when I look in the mirror. I have a long road ahead of me but I really have to do it this time. So I am hoping by joining a forum like this it will help me to stay motivated.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Understanding that i'm not meant to be overweight, that i'm still just a fit, healthy thin person who just happened to put on 100lbs, and that this is only temporary, not my whole identity.

Following any specific plan: Not really... Intuitive eating and permanent, slow, healthy lifestyle changes.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm not "dieting". I refuse to feel guilty about eating. Changing my habits to benefit how I feel, instead of just how I look.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I've been more of a lurker than an active participant in the forums.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: August 2012

Starting Weight: 283 pounds

Present Weight: 260 pounds

Goal Weight: 180 pounds at first, then according to my doctor I should weigh between 120 and 130 pounds

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Motivation to work out, Time to work out, and avoiding fast food and excessive snacking

Following any specific plan: No, just eliminating soda, fast food, and sweets while fitting in at least an hour work out a day.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I've been battling depression for the bulk of this year and I just can't stand to be this sad all the time. I feel that if I am able to meet a weight loss goal I can prove to myself that being on this planet isn't something that I'm enduring, it's something I can smile about and enjoy.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I really need support. I feel like I'm all alone and I keep letting myself down which keeps sending me down these dark spirals of self-defeat and self-hatred. I hope that I have found a place that can give me a swift and supportive "kick in the pants" to get me back on track. I managed to lose 50 pounds last year, but have gained over half of it back... I don't want to fail again!

i know i can be at a healthy weight...i was 155lbs just 5yrs back. September 2007. i had maintained that weight most of my life. then i allowed myself to get depressed and start relying on sugary foods to give me a rush and b4 you knew it i ballooned up to 245lbs. i know i can get back down to my goal weight and be even lighter than i was b4.
