General location: NW MN
Occupation: Data Specialist - I work from home but drive to the office twice a month (two hour round trip drive)
Birthday: Oct. 1 (Somehow I turned 39 this year!)
Marital status: Married (2-1/2 years)
Children/grandchildren: No, I have an unexplained fertility issue - although it's probably weight related.
How long have you been on WW/Flex: Just rejoined 1/4/08
How much weight do you hope to lose: A LOT -- 175 lbs.
What do you do for exercise: I have a membership to Anytime Fitness and have been walking on the treadmill. I currently have a tendon issue with my knee but if I take it slow, I can still use the treadmill. I'm hoping to incorporate the weight machines soon too.
Why do you think you'll be successful this time: Because I HAVE to. My aches and pains are pretty much all weight-related.
What is the biggest obstacle between you and success: ME. I don't have any excuses. No kids, work at home, belong to a 24 hour fitness place, etc.
How will/did you overcome this obstacle: I just re-joined at a meeting place and signed up for eTools. Since the WW meetings are about 30 miles from me, I will be attending the local TOPS chapter weekly for the official weigh-in and will be visiting various discussion boards (3FC, DWLZ, WW) for support. I also have the hypnosis CDs that Dotti endorses.
What do you like to do for fun: Rubber stamping, the internet, reading, shopping, talking with friends
What type of music do you like best? 70s/80s music
If you were on a deserted island for a month, by yourself, what 3 (only 3) items (not people) would you want with you? Water bottle with a filtration device, a tent, a very sharp machete - my fourth item would be the book "How to Survive On a Desert Island for a Month". LOL
