Hey all!! One of the ladies from my work has joined the fray, and I thought I'd publicize her introduction by giving it its own little thread. I know, how needlessly boundary-crossing of me.
Give her lots of welcome, and lots of love, SHE JUST GOT ENGAGED LAST WEEK, and we're working towards the wedding! YAY!
First name (if you want to tell): Megan
Geographical location: Guelph, Ontario
Marital Status: Engaged, living with new fiance
Occupation: Assistant Manager
Pets: 1 cat...Boogie..super cute...very hyper...extra annoying at times
Hobbies/Interests: reading, writing, playing online, watching movies and tv, hiking, shopping, going out for dinner, riding motorcycles
Eye/Hair Color: Blue/ dark blonde nearly brown
Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: The day I got engaged...so October 21, 2008
Starting Weight: I believe I am around 265ish
Present Weight: 265
Goal Weight: 150-165
Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: the inability to have home cooked meals at work. (I work in a kiosk...with no way of warming up food) Temptation of the food court nearly everyday. My love for Salty Snacks (salt and vinager chips are my fave!!!) my finace is the worst for buying snacks and pop and junk food.
Following any specific plan: not yet...just starting out...gunna try to find something easy to follow...too complex and my fiance won't want to follow with me
What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I am getting married in 2010....I want to be able to wear my dress confidently...I want to be able to go into the dress shop and not have to have them "special order" me a size to try on. I also want to feel comfortable wearing the clothes I love. I want to be able to go to a store and know that they will have my size, rather than walk past, knowing I will never be able to fit into their clothes.
Anything else you would like to share with us: i will have progress pics soon!!!
