Following any specific plan: calorie counting

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: This time I'm heavier than I have ever been and I feel worse than I ever have...physically. TOM is getting worse and I've read that it can be harder on overweight women, I can't move around like I used to, and quite frankly sex is not that comfortable anymore either. Just that last part is a BIG motivator to lose weight.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm very glad to be here on 3fc. I see that a lot of you women know each other enough to know what's going on in each other's lives other than diets and I'm looking forward to building a real support team here.

First name: Aly

Geographical location: New to NYC (Home sweet home is San Francisco)

Age: Almost 24, yikes when did that happen!?

Marital Status: Newlywed!

Children/Ages: None for quite some time (husband is a med student, I am a workaholic, no time!)

Occupation: I work for a professional sports team

Pets: Desperately want a dog or kitten...left my childhood pets back in California with my parents :-(

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, shopping, fashion, baseball, animals

Height: 5'9"

Eye/Hair Color: Hazel/Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Today! (3/3/09)

Starting Weight: 215

Present Weight: 215

Goal Weight: 150

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Not giving in to temptation. I have little to no will power.

Following any specific plan: Following my husband's lead (before I met him he lost about 100 lbs and is in amazing shape) - basically sensible eating and exercise. My problem isn't really moderation, I don't eat huge portions - but what I eat can be SO bad. I also have been so lazy when it comes to exercising over the past year. Ugh.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I thought it would have been my wedding...but I just couldn't get my act together. I think the fact that I'm turning 24 soon (the last year of my early 20's bleh) kind of made me realize this is the time in my life I should look my BEST, I shouldn't feel so frumpy as a freaking 23 year old! I've been chubby my entire life and I'm just so sick of it.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Something in me just clicked today....I stumbled upon these message boards by a complete and random accident and have spent all afternoon (whoops - sorry job!) reading through posts. It is so inspiring and made me think what the heck am I doing!? It's not impossible to lose weight! You all are already so inspiring.

Default Hi all

First name (if you want to tell): Amy

Geographical location: Suburb of Columbus, OH

Age: 27

Marital Status: single

Children/Ages: none, unless you count my minpin Rocky

Occupation: Public Relations Assistant for municipal government

Pets: Rocky - Miniature Pinscher

Hobbies/Interests: reading, wine, writing, serving every whim of my tiny tyrant of a dog

Height: 5'11

Eye/Hair Color: green-gray

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 2/27

Starting Weight: 292

Present Weight: 292

Goal Weight: I'd like to get down to 200

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I love eating! It has become such a focal point of my socializing with friends.... and I hate cooking at home. Tom Colicchio would not be proud!

Following any specific plan: Not sure quite yet

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: After suffering for a month of debilitating headaches (treated for sinus infection, migraines, to no avail) a visit to the ER crossed my paths with an astute ER doc who was tipped off by some of my symptoms and a week (A CT/MRI and a spinal tap later) I've been diagnosed with pseudotumor cerebri (intracranial hypertension).

They're still learning a lot about the condition, but do know it strikes overweight women of child-bearing age most often. I had never had a problem until recently, after a significant weight gain (thanks to the stress of moving to a new town, new job, general all-around winter laziness...).

My neurologist thinks that losing weight (even 10% of my body weight) may be enough to greatly help the condition, if not push it towards remission. If left untreated, the condition will continue to cause terrible headaches, and can also lead to blindness. If that's not motivating, I don't know what will be!

Anything else you would like to share with us: Looking forward to sharing the experience with others in a similar situation. I never thought at 27 I'd be facing health-related problems linked to my weight, its an eye-opener, and just goes to show, it is NEVER to soon to make yourself and your health a TOP priority.
