Hi everyone,

I was really glad to find this forum. I need to lose 100+ pounds. Having and giving support will be a big help. I have been lurking a few days and I have already been encouraged.

First name: Cheryl

Geographical location: South Carolina

Age: 53

Marital Status: Married

Children/Ages: 4 grown children

Occupation: Web administrator

Pets: 1 cat

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, Internet, non-active things!

Height: 5 ft. 2 in

Eye/Hair Color: Brown

Starting Date of Weight loss Journey: August 18, 2008 (This time!)

Starting Weight: 282

Present Weight: 260

Goal Weight: I do not want to set a goal weight at this time. It is too overwhelming to think of how much weight I need to lose. I am looking at 5 pounds at a time as I hope to lose 5 pounds a month.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss: Being around tempting food in many places.

Following any specific plan: I am using exchanges given me by a nutritionist but also counting the calories. I will lose a pound a week if I consume 3500 calories a week less than I use so that is what I plan to do. I many turn lose of the calories someday and just use the exchanges but not today.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:
There are two things that are different for me this time.
1- My mobility was affected and that really scared me. I have already lost enough weight to help that.
2 – I have a son in college. He was feeling a bit overwhelmed when considering the number of courses he would need and the length of time that it will take him. I reminded him that when he was a freshman in high school, he did not stop to think about the number of courses he would need to graduate. Neither did he stop to think “It is going to take me FOUR years to graduate high school.” Going to school was his life and before he knew it, he was graduating. I told him to do the same thing with college. Just do what he needs to do today and graduation day would be here in no time.
Then a light bulb went off in my head. The same is true for me with losing weight and getting healthy. There is no quick fix. I just have to do whatever is needed TODAY. If I do that everyday, one day I will realize that it is graduation day because I will be at a healthy weight.

Geographical location: BC Canada

Occupation: daycare provider to two darling baby girls

Eye/Hair Color: brown eyes and brownish black hair

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: My starting date was September 27

Starting Weight: 376

Present Weight: 330.6

Goal Weight: 140 to start... probably lower

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss: my emotional and boredom eating. And the fact that I would not eat all day and then gorge at night

Following any specific plan: calorie counting at 1800 a day. Eating mostly clean. Organic. Traditional eating.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm eating a wide variety of foods. I've stayed on plan for twice as long as I've EVER stuck to a diet. I woke up one day, went shopping, bought healthy foods and ran with it. There was not working up to it, researching, nothing. I just did it. And that's what I do. I just do it. Because it's not an option.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I am so happy to be losing weight. I am so happy that I feel better, and look better and sleep better and do everything better. I am so relieved that in the next two years I will out of the obese danger zone and fit and healthy.

Anything else you would like to share with us:

I'm really frustrated with every aspect of my life right now. I'm not sure what to do about it. The main thing that is bothering me is my weight because I think everything that bothers me, all leads back to how heavy I am. My weight is preventing me from doing the everyday things that need to be done, what ever those things may be. I needed somewhere to turn so I decided to Google ~ I'm feeling lucky, "Weight Loss Message boards" and this one popped up. I came and lurked for a little bit and I like what I have seen so far. I'm looking for support without criticism as I have encountered criticism on other forums. It is one of the things that has prevented me from continuing on with other sites. I hope this Message Board will be different.

Starting Date of Weight loss Journey: for the millionth time, but more committed than ever this time.. started march 5th 09

Starting Weight: 260

Present Weight: 249

Goal Weight: 125

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: accepting that I wont be doing this perfectly .. I always tend to give up after I did something I felt I shouldnt, or missed out on a workout etc , & I have pcos, just seem to feel more discouraged about it coming off not quick enough.. I have almost no patience! lol

Following any specific plan: no not really , just lowering my carbs & sugar intake .. and no more pop

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: finally woke up, finally committed.. other times yes i really wanted to lose but I wasn't really to fully commit to a lifestyle change .. and im agoraphobic, so im just really sick of not being able to get out.. and I really want to be be doing more with my son.. especially this summer.. so I have the extra motivation now & Im doing some things differently that's been a big help in curbing my hunger/cravings

Anything else you would like to share with us: ive lost weight twice in bigger amounts before.. I never really was over weight until i was 17 I think .. I was 170 & got down to 134 .. then I ballooned to 220 & got down to 159 .. I actually gained little during pregnancy , but gained about 30 lbs afterwords having to deal with post postpartum depression & a lot of stress/anxiety in home life

Goal Weight: 210

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: actually starting so I've already overcome that hurdle!

Following any specific plan: Tracking energy balance via mypyramidtracker.gov

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I can't "win" when I use scale to measure progress. If doing better than expected, then I ease off on efforts and if worse than expected, I give up. So absolutely no scale this time until I calculate I've lost 50 lbs (which is why I don't know my starting weight)

Anything else you would like to share with us: Why yes, I am a geek to come up with such a mathmatically based plan!

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: starting over today (7/9/09), my last "journey" was in '04 when I lost around 70 pounds and have somehow managed to keep it off since

Starting Weight: 360+(?)

Present Weight: 285

Goal Weight: 150

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: staying motivated to cook and exercise as opposed to eating out and staying in, plus avoiding any soft drinks (can't have diet as I have bad reactions to artificial sweeteners but of course I shouldn't have regular either).

Following any specific plan: undecided

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: cooking for two and not just for myself

Anything else you would like to share with us: I dropped nearly everything I knew and moved to another state to start my life all over with someone I met online. My boyfriend has been very supportive of me, but I've battled with depression and have had a hard time adjusting to all the changes I've been through. I've actually been diagnosed with depression in the past and sometimes wonder if I'm manic-depressive or have a touch of OCD. I haven't had a chance to make any friends since I've moved except for online ones, and since my boyfriend works a lot I tend to get lonely. I also have a history with asthma, which got pretty bad when my weight was higher. I'm hoping I'll have even better control of it if I can drop some more pounds; it certainly can't hurt, right?

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have just achieved a life-long professional dream. But I realize I need the professional appearance to go with it. I work in a profession where getting out to meet and greet is important, and I have a tendency to hide because I'm embarrassed about my weight. Now, someone has really taken a chance on me, and I feel like I need to take advantage of it, because this is my shot!
