Post Let Me Introduce Myself!

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

Age: 30

Marital Status: Happily married

Children/Ages: None yet, that is why I am here!

Occupation:Investment Specialist

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)

Starting Weight:308

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!!
