First name: Maaike

Geographical location: Holland

Age: 22

Marital Status: As single as can be.

Children/Ages: none

Occupation: Medical student

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: I believe 1 september 2008

Starting Weight: 76 kg

Present Weight: 65 kg

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I am a big snacker when I have the occasion. People put something down in front of me, and I'll eat it. If I plan out what to eat at for example a party beforehand it goes better - a little bit. The strategy of not snacking the rest of the day, making sure I'm full and exercising more works better for me.

Following any specific plan: Calorie counting

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: This time I succeeded... I wanted it so bad and I was really sick of my excess weight. In my head, failure was not an option.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Thank you all so much for your support and advice. I don't think I could have done it without you. And I'll post pics soon.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: October 2008

Starting Weight: 209 lbs

Present Weight: 182.8 lbs

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I need to be mindful of my eating. I sometimes eat when stressed or bored, so I have to keep a watch out for that. Also, I am easily discouraged and it sometimes leads me to fall back into bad habits.

Following any specific plan: Move more, eat less and only when I am hungry is my basic plan.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm focusing more on mini goals and trying to forget that I have a larger goal so I won't get as discouraged when thinking about how far I have to go.
