Occupation: Grad student (between degrees...)

Pets: Two canine siblings (Toby and Molly - I have a human sibling too).

Height: 5'9"

Eye/Hair Color: hazel/brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: May 2, 2010

Starting Weight: 278 before I left for Ireland in September, but I was probably at... 265ish when I started? I have no scale!

Present Weight: No idea.

Goal Weight: 150

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I get derailed by making exceptions (for travel, parties, blah blah blah). Self-discipline.

Following any specific plan: 1500cal/day, food journal, gradually working exercise/resistance training in.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I went into this really understanding that I have to eat this way for the rest of my life.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I want to be an opera director! And I want to develop an acting methodology with an emphasis on physical performance specifically for opera singers. Jim Henson is my all-time favorite human being.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I've never met a sweet treat I didn't like. For the past few years I just got lazy, and didn't really care what and how much food I eat.

Following any specific plan: Nope more like a whole foods approach I guess.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: In the past I would just starve myself. This time I am also working out and trying to eat right. I'm hoping this is the last time

Anything else you would like to share with us:I can do it

Right now I live alone and am the only one I have to worry about when planning meals, which makes things a LOT easier.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight-loss:
Doing it a second time. When I was 15 i was 240lbs & went from 240lbs-175lbs in bout 3 1/2 months following the LA Weight loss plan & kept it off till I was 20 & gained it all back & then some & its so much harder to lose it the 2nd time around. Well I'll tell ya I learned my lesson & will never gain this weight back once I lose it this time!!

Following any specific plan
: the accu weight loss diet

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:
That I won't get cocky & overly confident & think I can eat whatever I want once I get down in weight. That's what I did last time & it backfired so bad on me!! Once I lose the weight this time i WILL KEEP IT OFF!!

Please add your profile, so we can get to know you better. Simply copy the text below and paste it into a reply and add your information


First name: Sarah

Geographical location: Mesa, AZ

Age: 23

Marital Status: not married (amazing boyfriend, so supportive)

Children/Ages: none

Occupation: Retail MRDS Pricer

Pets: none

Hobbies/Interests: Painting, making purses, singing, (is netflicks a hobby??) tennis

Height: 5'7"

Eye/Hair Color: Brown/green - Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: (this time) June 20, 2010 ( when i discovered i weight about 284, may 2009)

Starting Weight: 275

Present Weight: 270

Goal Weight: 140

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Being prepared for my day with healthy food. I have a sad lil income, and no car, my days are long. Being ready for it, and not just giving up and eating at Burger King cuz its easier than carrying food with me. Its so much easier (especially in AZ) just to stop in somewhere.

Following any specific plan: South Beach, I will be switching to atkins, then back to South Beach, similarly as to how we all change our work outs. This will keep the weight coming off at the rate I'm hoping for.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I need this. Its no longer just a want.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm a open and honest person. I dont have a fabulous life, and I know I'm flawed. I'm working on my life and my flaws. I'm in school, I'm done with minimum wage jobs and not having a car. I'm ready to be the woman I know I can be, inside and out. ( t his serious post aside, I'm rather funny and light hearted)

First name: Kari

Geographical location: Iowa

Age: 27

Marital Status: Single, but living w/ the guy I'm gonna marry

Children/Ages: None - thank goodness - we can barely keep track of ourselves

Occupation: high school language arts teacher

Pets: none - but I look at the puppies at the local shelter weekly and want one so terribly bad! Ideally, I'd be able to snag a female lab/border collie mix with beautiful black and white coloring.

Hobbies/Interests: Biking, Reading, Films, checking out live music and new restaurants/bars

Height: 5'7

Eye/Hair Color: Blue/Brunette

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Officially - June 2010

Starting Weight: 171 actually

Present Weight: 166

Goal Weight: 145...although I'm pretty sure that even in high school when I was running XC, I don't think I ever even weighed that little. (Looking back on high school pictures, it's really unfortunate that I didn't realize that I had a slammin' body then! I never wore dresses; always loosefitting jeans and T-shirts or hoodies.) I think I'd even be happy if I was able to maintain weight at about 155.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: My eternal love of FOOD! (And the fact that heavy drinking is a by-product of my profession.)

Following any specific plan: Not really - just trying to make healthier choices and get moving. I had good luck on South Beach once, so I'm going to be limiting carbs.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm focusing on the long run right now instead of on losing all the weight as fast as I can.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Sounds strange, but a major reason for me wanting to whip my body into shape is because I want to be a good role model for my kids. Also, before I actually have kids, I'd like to be more fit so that my body bounces back quicker. Plus... Extra-curriculars in the bedroom tend to be more sizzlin' when I'm feelin' fab about my body.
