Children/Ages: No kids

Occupation: Technical writer at a software company

Pets: 2 cats - Annie and Lily

Hobbies/Interests: Sewing and being crafty

Eye/Hair Color: Dark blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 4/21/2010

Starting Weight: 180

Present Weight: 174.5

Goal Weight: 140 (then I'll reevaluate and see if I want to lose any more)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Cravings for sweets and eating at restaurants.

Following any specific plan: No specific diet plan. Just trying to stay with very natural whole foods.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm not on a specific diet, so I don't feel like foods are "off limits." I'm just trying to make smart decisions about what goes in my body one day at a time. Previously, I would lose weight while on a "diet" but gain it back as soon as I stopped because my lifestyle hadn't changed. I'm also blogging about my weight-loss journey this time, and I've never done that before.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I am involved in a "Biggest Loser" type challenge at work that is helping me to stay motivated.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I need to do something that I can stick with rather than a fad. I also really need to incorporate physical activity. As a business owner of a bridal shop, I feel like I should "put my best face forward" as they say, which means I need to slim down so I feel confident. Also, I plan to start having kids in 3 years and I want to have good habits instilled by then!

Anything else you would like to share with us: I love this forum - I have never seen an online community that is so supportive and kind to each other. It annoys me when it seems like people are just there to fire other people up - I didn't see that here at all! You all are so impressive and I have mountains of respect and admiration for your determination and great 'tudes!

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I'm a binge-eater. Always have been. Also, inherently lazy.

Following any specific plan: 1200-1300 calories/day, food log w/ calorie counting, cardio 5-6 times a week, and strength training 2-3 times a week. Also, trying to lay off the booze and "other" stuff.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm going to take what I've been learning and apply it even when I'm to my goal weight.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I like to find support here because my partner isn't very encouraging and actually does not like the idea of me losing weight. So everything I take away from reading this forum helps a lot more than people might think.

First name: Stephanie

Geographical location: Flagstaff

Age: 25

Marital Status: Single

Children/Ages: Nope!

Occupation: Student & fine dining server

Pets: Cat and a fish

Hobbies/Interests: I really enjoy working out, swimming, and traveling!

Height: 5'3"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue/Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: On and off for years...

Starting Weight: 240

Present Weight: 235

Goal Weight: 140

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Self-esteem

Following any specific plan: Exercise 5 days/week and no fast food or sweets

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I lost 60 lbs about 2 years ago, and never imagined that I would gain it back. Well, I did and I haven't forgiven myself for it. I need to do this for my health. I'm 25, and I get severe chest pains. I'm depressed, which I think is mostly due to my weight.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Believe it or not, I do have a BS in Exercise Science. The one thing that I EVERY professor said: Weight loss can only be obtained by calories out equally more than calories in. That's the magical formula. However, through my own experiences, I have learned that each person needs an individual plan in order to make that happen. Whether it's pilates, a vegetarian diet, or cutting out sugar, you need to figure out how you can and WILL consume less calories than you burn.

First name: Gretel

Geographical location: New Jersey

Age: 28

Marital Status: Married

Children/Ages: n/a

Occupation: Engineer

Pets: 5-year old German Shepherd (Darla), 15-year old cat (Salem), ~8-year old cat (Moody), and a 6-year old guinea pig

Hobbies/Interests: Being a homeowner, bicycling, travel, gardening

Height: 5'4"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue/blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Since high school, but actively taking control since the summer of 2009

Starting Weight: 215 (highest was 225-230)

Present Weight: 202

Goal Weight: ~140 or whatever feels right

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Having a skinny husband who can eat anything and not gain, plateaus after every pound, and if I cut back calories, I lack energy to exercise - it's a cycle that leaves me not wanting to eat well or move much.

Following any specific plan: Right now, just sensible eating close to Adam's Diet from the jpfitness forums with NROL4W and lots of biking.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm starting to have health issues that can be alleviated with weight loss. Also, I'm planning for children in the next couple of years and taking the weight off now would be best for everyone.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Frankly, I don't care how I look anymore. I just want to keep the weight off for good / or be fit enough to do all the things I won't do now.
