I am new to these boards and would like to introduce myself. I am looking for some new friends to give me support when I need it, and I will return the favor whenever I can!
Real name: Tammy
Geographical location: Western Canada
Marital Status: Happily married
Children/Ages: None yet, that is why I am here!
Pets: One cat, Herbie
Hobbies/Interests:cross-stitching, movies, crafts
Eye/Hair Color: Blue/usually blonde but now strange red/blonde/brown color after hairdresser sister got a hold of me
Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: today (for this time around)
Present Weight: 308 (yup, I even ran to the scale and doublechecked, but it has not changed since this morning and crossing my fingers made no difference)
Goal Weight: 250 to start, 145 ideally
Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss:Emotional Eating!! I eat when I am happy, I eat when I am sad, I eat to celebrate, I eat to cry!! I need to find other things to replace the eating!
Following any specific plan: Move more, eat less, journal all the time
What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have battled in the past with depression, but I feel that I am past that now and I am ready to see the real me emerge. I want to lose weight more than anything as I would love to start a family, but not at this weight. I have fertility problems, and want my weight to be less of an issue when I am straightening these problems out.
Anything else you would like to share with us: I am happy to be here!! I would really like to meet someone in the same position as me who is trying to lose weight before starting a family.
E-mail: pm me and I will tell you!!
