Starting Weight: 182

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: boredom, my runner husband who eats anything he wants and doesn't gain a pound, friendships that revolve around food, quite a bit actually

Following any specific plan:eat 1500 calories and workout five days a week. I need to start small because I always go over board and then drop out after two or three weeks

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:starting small and celebrating small successes

Anything else you would like to share with us:I'm hoping I'll be at my goal weight in time for my 26th birthday in August and actually wear a two piece for the first time in my life!

Children/Ages: None yet

Occupation: Currently in a slump...

Pets: A cat called Ben :-)

Hobbies/Interests:

Playing music, watching films - going to cinema, reading, eating out

Height: 5'9"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue eyes, dark blond hair

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 18.02.09

Starting Weight:

Too scared to weigh myself right now... will edit when I have summoned the courage!

Present Weight:

Goal Weight: Size 12 (UK size)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Tiredness, laziness - I hate cooking, eating out, and even ready-meals are so tempting! Boredom eating... I sit around in coffe shops all day, drinking tea and munching for lack of a job or motivation...

Following any specific plan: No, I tried Slimming World, but gave up...

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:

I am going to want children in the next 2-3 years, and I already have lower chances than normal from having PCOS. Being overweight is an added hurdle I don't need! My boyfriend has unofficially asked me to marry him (he still has to do the down on one knee jobby!) and I am too big to wear the type of dress I've been dreaming about since I was about 5!! ;-)

Anything else you would like to share with us:

I'm prone to mood-swings... one day I'll be happily positive about things, the next, convinced my life is a mess. The truth is, that some aspects of my life (family, and boyfriend, friends) are amazing, and others (career...) are not going well at all.

First name: Caitlin

Geographical location: Wiesbaden, Germany (originally from Long Island, New York)

Age: 20

Marital Status: Single

Children/Ages: Well, kind of, haha. I take care of two boys 7-8 hours a day -- thatīs kind of like having kids, right? They are 7 & 9.

Occupation: Au pair

Pets: I have two at my home in the US. A cat named Puppy and a dog named Louie. None here though.

Hobbies/Interests: Learning German, reading, music and dancing, working out, traveling.

Height: 5'5''

Eye/Hair Color: green eyes (though each one is rather different shade of green!) and brown hair.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: February 20th 2008

Starting Weight: 95.2 kilos, 204 lbs I actually think I weighed a bit more than this at some point but I have been eating somewhat healthier the past few months. But now I am promising to myself to be more proactive about it.

Present Weight: 95.2 kilos, 204 lbs

Goal Weight: 58 kilos, 128 lbs

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: A love of junk food, binge eating, snacking, awful food choices!

Following any specific plan: Calorie counting and exercise

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: More knowledge than I've had in the past. I have awful eating habits and I go back and forth between starving myself and then going on insane binges, which has probably made me even fatter. Now I know I need to eat lightly all day. I need to exercise and move around. I feel stronger and more determined.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Weight loss has been a life long struggle for me. I have always been fairly athletic but I have awful eating habits that totally negate any efforts I make in that department. I have had success with weight loss before, I got down to 167 from 190 and I was so incredibly happy. Then I went to college and kind of had a rough time there and gained it all back plus some. I am happy again though, here in Germany and the weight has been coming off without even trying, so now with a little effort I am hoping to see big results!!

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm really excited about this site!! I look forward to getting to know everyone and am ready to get below that 200 mark!! (my first mini-goal!!)

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 1/5/2009

Starting Weight: 159.6

Present Weight: 152.4

Goal Weight: 130 for now

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Staying disciplined, I have 2 roommates that don't care about what they eat, so if the DBF and I don't cook they order pizza, I stay away from it for so long, and then finally crumble when I know there is enough for me to eat, and they'll still get all they want. I just love pizza, its delish!!! My DBF makes a whole wheat pizza that is awesome, no sauce, and fat free cheese! Thank goodness he's on WL Journey too!

Following any specific plan: My DBF follows WW Core from 2008, so I pretty much do that too. I don't keep track of points is all.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:
I have this site! I know I'm not on a diet, I know it doesn't come fast, and takes a lot of hard work and determination.

Anywho...I've been hanging around for a while, but haven't said anything. But its time to join in, so HELLO everyone...
