S/C/G: 232/ticker!/170

Height: 5'8"

Default

First name: Chelsea

Geographical location: Louisiana is my home, I'm in Houston right now and in less than a month I'll be in Colorado

Age: 21

Marital Status: Single, but my boyfriend and I have been together for over six years [total]

Children/Ages: Not for a while I hope! like eight years!!

Occupation: Student

Pets: Lola is my red merle Australian Shepherd. My boyfriend has our border collie mix, Dylan, who I will hopefully be living with in a couple of months!

Hobbies/Interests:I love art and architecture and love the **** out of WATCHING sports...if only I could get back into playing them!

Height: 5'8

Eye/Hair Color: green/dirty blonde. Dyed red/strawberry blonde right now

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: July 4th, 2011.

Starting Weight: ~232

Present Weight: 225

Goal Weight: 160-180, depending on how my body looks at 180. The last time I was ~180 I had a tiny waist and no extra fat anywhere, just curvy and muscular. So if my body fat amount is down enough at 180, I'd be happy there...if not, maybe off a bit more!

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but I also deal with knee issues. I broke my right knee off (yes, off) when I was 5, and still have some weakness there.

Following any specific plan: Planning on starting Weight Watchers here soon and increasing my exercise. In Colorado I will be hiking as often as possible, as well as visiting the gym on any bad weather days. I've also enjoyed Zumba when I've done it before, so might add that in there to spice up the exercise sometimes! So far I've simply cut out my sodas and essentially everything else completely, just water and unsweetened tea, and also have limited my portion size.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Honestly this is only the second or third time I've seriously started an effort. When I was going into the 8th grade I did Atkins and lost a ton of weight (and kept it off until Hurricane Katrina force-fed me lasagna for 6 weeks!) and in 11th grade I did elliptical for 45-60 minutes a day, with about 20 minutes of weights...but I didn't lose any weight until 6 months after I gave up on working out (but I lost 30 pounds then, no diet, no exercise. Go figure)
So in short, haha, this is different because I am truly committed to doing this the RIGHT way, and it is not going to be a diet -- this is a lifestyle change.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm just so happy to be in a community of people who want to be healthy and aren't afraid to share their highs as well as their lows. All of the stories in the Goals forum I've read, as well as the NSGs are so helpful to motivating me!

Default Katie's Bio

First name: Katie

Geographical location: Florida

Age: 26

Marital Status: Married for just over a year

Children/Ages: None yet

Occupation: ESE Teacher

Pets: None yet

Hobbies/Interests: Crafting, sewing, blogging

Height: 5'3

Eye/Hair Color: Blue/Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Officially we'll call it July 18, 2011. However, I've been on the weight loss journey since about 8th grade.

Starting Weight: 270

Present Weight: 267

Goal Weight:170

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: MYSELF. I make excuses for my hurdles and let myself believe them... I have PCOS but it's winning because I let it. I sabotage myself constantly.

Following any specific plan: Eating 1200-1400 calories daily, quit soda, limit caffeine to morning coffee, and choose whole grains.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: SUPPORT and accountability. I have never been so proactive about my weight loss. I'm surrounded by people who love me just the way I am and the only person who ever calls me out about my weight is my mother (but I have done a good job ignoring her). So, now, I can look at all the people who have been in my boat and found success. I want to succeed! And, I want to have a baby some day soon and be a cute pregnant woman... not a hot mess.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I am thankful for everyone's honesty here. I see a little of myself in every single post I've read and it's inspiring.

Trish, I am an ESE teacher and spend my life loving on kids like yours. I am constantly amazed by the parents of children with special needs. I have them just a part of each day and am exhausted at the end... you parents have them 24/7. It's just amazing! Keep up the good work!

**This thread can get really long with 100's of bios to go through. To keep this thread useful, periodically I will go through and delete the bios of members who have not posted in the 100 lb club in the last few months. My goal is that this is a list of bios for active members. If you left for a while and I deleted your bio while you were gone - please just add it back!! We're glad to have you!**

Anything else you would like to share with us: I tragically, and suddenly, lost a family member 5 years ago. Even though I've struggled with my weight (due to emotional eating), this was the thing that sent me 100 lbs over the edge.
