S/C/G: 250/248/140

Height: 5'6"

Default

First name: Holly

Geographical location: Eastern North Carolina

Age: 24

Marital Status: Completely Single

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Looking for a job, Senior College Student

Pets: Taco the Chihuahua and Chief the Dachshund

Hobbies/Interests: Bowling, Reading, Video Games, and (guiltily) the online game RuneScape, Anime (Favorite is Code Geass)

Height: 5'6"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue/ Blonde (I hate the term dishwater blonde...makes it sound dirty)

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: April 5, 2010

Starting Weight: 248.9 (Close enough to 249...)

Present Weight: 248.9

Goal Weight: Short term - < 200, eventually 140 (apparently my 'healthy' weight)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: My dislike of exercise. Also, since I live at home with my parents I can't stock the fridge and pantry with 'healthy' or 'diet' food. Trying to overcome food is really gonna be difficult (and in the past has been my excuse for NOT dieting)

Following any specific plan: No, I don't know which ones are 'good', especially after seeing so many fail for my mother

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm serious this time. From past experience when I make a goal, any goal, my motivation tends to cool a week or two later...I'll have to WORK to ensure that doesn't happen this time.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I used to be 83 pounds at 14 before puberty, after puberty next thing I knew I was 190, then 220...I feel like I 'skipped' the healthy weight range :S I really want to be able to shop for clothing that is my age, not made for my grandmothers. Also, I want to be more than just a pretty face.

Hey everybody! Good to me you, I hope to get to talk with a lot of you around the forums

First name: Kaylin

Geographical location: Ohio, USA

Age: 23

Marital Status: in a relationship

Children/Ages: none

Occupation: librarian-in-training

Pets: 3 bunnies, they're rather adorable

Hobbies/Interests: cake decorating, web design, and writing, among other things

Height: 5'1" (I used to think I was 5'3" but the last time I went to the doctor he dashed those beliefs against the rocks, *sadface*)

Eye/Hair Color: brown/brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 4/16/2010, though this has been going on for ten years... this is just the latest (and hopefully last!) start date.

Starting Weight: 118.6lbs (tho it's a very fatty 118.6 and I'm more interested in firming up and removing flab than in losing pounds)

Present Weight: 118.6lbs

Goal Weight: 115lb range would be fine

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Binge eating. I've been doing it for YEARS and it's a habit for me at this point, it's comforting and a coping mechanism, so I'll need to find something healthy to replace that.

Following any specific plan: Not really - just trying to eat healthy and exercise with a good degree of regularity.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I think I'm finally genuinely ready to do this without resorting to eating disordered habits, which I've always fallen into in the past.
