What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: My mom is overweight and diabetic.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I need a lot of help. I have always been "the fat girl" and I am tired of it. I just really need someone to chat with that is going through similar things.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Fountain pop & Coffee (I like a little coffee w/ my cream & sugar).

Following any specific plan: Go to the gym, dust off the workout dvds, use to program “fitday”, create a health meal plan, drink tons of water.

Flat out.. I hate water. Always have. Growing up, our tap water was horrible (and sometimes crunchy). When you filled a glass, it literally took a minute for it to become clear. I usually drank pop. Tons of pop. Recently, I tried Dasani (a coca-cola product w/ minerals) & loved it. So, tomorrow I'm picking up a case and we'll see what happens.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have nothing else to do so I can dedicate the time and attention.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I plan on taking before pics but won’t show them until I hit my goal.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Jan 4th (new try)

Starting Weight: 167

Present Weight: 167

Goal Weight: about 125

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Not eating the same foods in the same quantities as my cheese and lasagna loving partner.

Following any specific plan: Not decided yet, I've tried caloriecounting before combined with Eat to Live and working out and got to my goal weight last autumn. I think I'll do the same again now, but try not to be too strict on myself so I won't regain the lost weight.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I've grown up and realised I'm only going to get depressed if I strive for absolute perfection, but when I look at photos from last year I see how good I looked when I was slim and much healthier too.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm so glad this forum exists, everyone seems lovely and you learn so much and I think it's fantastic for motivation.

First name: Nicole

Geographical location: Atlanta, GA

Age: 25 (almost 26)

Marital Status: live in sin with BF

Children/Ages: none

Occupation: copywriter

Pets: Sophie (Siberian Husky), Bacchus and Apollo (fluffy grey kitties)

Hobbies/Interests: shopping, going to the movies, reading, eating out, horseback riding

Height: 5'3

Eye/Hair Color: blue/blonde (although I'm currently a brunette due to an ill-advised dye job)

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: January 1, 2009 (I've had some major weight lost before, but was happy with my size until a couple of months ago..so this is a new one!)

Starting Weight: 130

Present Weight: 130

Goal Weight: 115 (or when my jeans fit like they're supposed to!)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: My boyfriend and I LOVE to eat out and have gotten into the habit of going out a couple of times a week. In the current economic situation, it's better for my waistline AND my wallet to cook at home! Also, I'm not a big fan of going to the gym so forcing myself to work out has always been a stuggle.

Following any specific plan: no... just exercise and try to eat well. I like to cook, so I'm challenging myself to come up with low-cal, healthy recipes at home.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Hmm...as of right now, nothing really. If I can stick to working out (trying an at-home plan of videos combined with walking the dog twice a day) for over 2 weeks, it will be different! That's why I'm here!

Anything else you would like to share with us: Nothing right now!

Anything else you would like to share with us: Ive found that one of the best ways to tone my entire body is pole dancing. I took a class with my girlfriends just for the **** of it, and now I go every week. It is so fun to fool around on the pole with your friends not to mention it really increases your strength and flexibility.
