I'm 18. Can I still be counted in the 20 somethings section even though I'm 2 years behind?

Starting Weight: 184.4

Present Weight: 184.4

Goal Weight: 160

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I love to eat bread, pastries, cookies, cakes, sweets...

Following any specific plan: low gi diet

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I don't just want to focus on losing pounds this time, I want to learn to listen to my body. Obviously, the quick fix fad diets never work... but there are lots of skinny people in the world that are not on permanent diets. They must have figured out how to listen to their bodies intuitively, to figure out when to stop eating, etc. I'd like to get to the same point.

Anything else you would like to share with us: a support system is so important when trying to lose weight... thanks for being there!

First name: Brighid

Age: 19 (not quite 20 yet, hope you won't hold it against me)

Marital Status: single

Children/Ages: none

Occupation: student

Pets: 1 fish named Marcus Porcius Cato. A betta, and the the angriest I've ever seen. Bites, although he doesn't have teeth. If ever there was a fish who wanted Carthage to be destroyed, this would be it.

Hobbies/Interests: classics (can you tell), writing, drawing, scifi (BSG is a favorite), D&D, all sorts of nerdy junk like that.

Height: 5'3" 1/2

Eye/Hair Color: green/green and blue

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Some time in 2007.

Starting Weight: 206 pounds

Present Weight: 173 pounds

Goal Weight: My ticker lies- my real goal is 145 pounds.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: When I get depressed I eat a ton to compensate often. And, of course, exercising and dieting make me prone to mood swings, which can cause me to feel depressed.... etc.

Following any specific plan: Counting calories, trying to get a little bit each of protein, carbs, and fats.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:
This is really just a continuation, but what's different this time among other things is 1) my metabolism seems to have sped up a ton since my last attempt, so more calories feel like fewer, but I also lose faster
2) I'm re-losing weight, which means I'm less easily satisfied by seeing numbers go down (I got all the way down to 162 way back in the day), and also that sometimes I try to do things I can't do, because I think I'm in better shape than I am because once I was in such good shape.
3)I no longer am part of a competitive team, so I can't rely on team conditioning to get me my exercise. I've got to self-motivate.

Anything else you would like to share with us:Really excited about interacting with a small group of people on this forum and getting to know y'all!

Starting Weight: 240

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Adapting to new living conditions and having my priorities thrown off all the time.

Following any specific plan: Atkins, and when I'm off Atkins I'm usually out and about a lot anyway, so I get my exercise in.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: It's actually my first weight loss effort. I've contemplated losing weight for years, but never went for it until recently. I'm going to succeed on my first try. I have an all or nothing kind of personality.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm into anime and other... questionable... things like that. ;P

First name: Erva

Geographical location: Washington, D.C.

Age: 27

Marital Status: Dating

Children/Ages: No kids

Occupation: Attorney

Pets: No pets

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, Salsa Dancing, Music, Learning about Fitness, Scrabble, Window shopping , Bikram Yoga, Learning how to ride my new bike on actual streets, not the sidewalk

Height: 5'9

Eye/Hair Color: Brown Eyes / Black Hair

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 6/27/2010

Starting Weight: 293.4

Present Weight: 288.4

Goal Weight: First Goal is 250; Second Goal is 200; Third Goal is 180.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I love chocolate, and candy, and like many I am an emotional eater. Learning how to channel my stress eating into another activity will be a challenge. Also controlling my portions is a huge hurdle.

Following any specific plan: I am measuring and pre-packaging my food; tracking my calories on sparkpeople.com; working out for at least 30 minutes every day; trying to get 7-8 hours of sleep each night; taking a good multivitamin; weighing in every morning; and keeping an Excel spreadsheet of daily weight, so I can make a chart of my progress.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: The biggest difference is that I am measuring and pre-packing my food before I eat. Portion control is hard, and this really helps a lot. I bought a little scale, which makes it easier for me to keep track of everything I eat. I have never minded going to the gym, but I was also bad with portions, so hopefully getting my calories/nutrition in check will give me results.

Occupation: Student/Staff member at University

Pets: Cat - Skittles (he's all white...anyone else remember the mystery flavor?)

Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy reading...I play world of warcraft...and I enjoy spending time with my friends, family, and boyfriend.

Height: 5'9"

Eye/Hair Color: Greenish...and my hair is a light red right now...working on getting it blonde. I'm naturally a brunette.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 7/2/2010 (First WW meeting tonight, then grocery shopping and cooking for the weekend)

Starting Weight: 184.4

Present Weight: 184.4

Goal Weight: 1st goal: 175 (5%)...2nd goal: 166 (10%)...3rd goal: 150!...Final goal?: Potentially 145, depending on how I feel and look at 145.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Not throwing (for a single day or whole week) in the towel because I missed a workout or ate poorly. I have that thought process. I need to learn to get over it, and do better next time.

Following any specific plan: Weight watchers! My mother is a lifetime member and when I was whining and having a pity party, she suggested it.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have the support of others. I was successful before losing some weight, but I didn't keep it off. I didn't talk to other people about it. I was shy. Instead of being proud. I'll have my mom's support, I've already spoken to my boyfriend about it, I'll have WW meeting support and of course I'll have the support of all of you! I'm putting myself out there. I have to be accountable for my actions.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm ready!

So I will be around here more often looking for advice, support, and healthy eating ideas/recipes.
