REAL NAME: Angie

AGE: 39

BIRTHDAY: October 8, 1970

MARITAL STATUS: Separated

FAMILY INFO: It's me and my 5 year old son, and my mother who moved in with us 2 yrs ago.
HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Love cooking (go figure!), outdoor stuff like camping, hiking, swimming, canoeing (riding more than paddling )

CURRENT WEIGHT: 252

GOAL WEIGHT: 160

HEIGHT: 5'6"

EYE COLOR: Green

HAIR COLOR: Dark Brown

OCCUPATION: Manager

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Southern Ontario (Toronto area)

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Will power and determination, I'm too easy on myself.

FOLLOWING ANY SPECIFIC PLAN: Dr. Poon's Metabolic Diet

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I've just made a major life change and feel motivated to make more big changes in my life; I'm recently separated, now I want to be fit and healthy and change my life even further. I'm turning 40 this October and hope to be a lot healthier by then. In December we are going to Disney and I want to make sure I can fit on the rides!!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm fairly liberal and have lots of enthusiasm - it can be a bit much actually; be sure to let me know when it hits the annoying point

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: I do best when I lose a good deal of weight quickly in the beginning; that seems to get me in the right frame of mind to commit to a food plan and exercise.
