Present Weight: 131.8 haha

Goal Weight: 118

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: My schedule. It is so hard to eat right when I have 12 hour days at the hospital, well not really eat right, but to not eat too many calories. And it's hard to schedule workouts around classes and clinicals.

Following any specific plan: Doing C25K and counting calories

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: It's more about health this time (even though I do want to lose weight), I want to be in the best shape I can be.

Default Newbie here! Hi everyone!

First name: Christine

Geographical location: Buffalo

Age: 28

Marital Status: Single

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Attorney

Pets: 2 cats (Simba and Rafiki)

Hobbies/Interests: Dancing, reading, movies

Height: 5'3"

Eye/Hair Color: Green/Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Start of THIS weight loss journey (my last!!) - 7/17/2010

Starting Weight: 186

Present Weight: 186

Goal Weight: 135

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I'm an all-or-nothing person when it comes to fitness/weight loss - either I "go big or go home".....and I'm learning that it doesn't have to be that way. Just because I face some obstacles doesn't mean I should throw in the towel.

Following any specific plan: Going to try Jillian Michael's Master your metabolism

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm truly committed to becoming healthy - my father had a heart attack this past year at only 53 and is dealing with the after effects of that, and I do not want to become a victim of genetics + unhealthy lifestyle.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm really excited to start and would love to talk to some weight loss buddies - especially those in the Buffalo/Western NY area! But really anyone who is similar to me in weight loss goals would be a welcome weight loss buddy!

Well, I'm back. Again.... I have been doing terribly lately. I don't know why. I want to stop, but the food just tastes so good! If you have any tips or hints on how to stop overeating, please share them with me. I have been out of the game so long that all my goal dates have changed and I need to make new ones. What is everyone else's goals?

Please share. You can send me a message or post them. I don't know if there is a forum for that or not. I will look. Good luck everyone, and please wish me luck : )

Marital Status: Single

Children/Ages: No kids

Occupation: Art student

Pets: I have a fish that I've actually had for a number of years (and he's just a beta)

Hobbies/Interests: Well, I'm definitely into art - specifically design and now, stop-motion animation. I also like to play guitar, and basically just hang out with my friends.

Height: 5'0"... unfortunately. hahah

Eye/Hair Color: Hazel/Brown (with a teal streak!)

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Umm... my whole life? Regardless of my age, I have been losing/gaining/struggling with my weight since about the age of 9 or 10. This endeavor here is one of many... and hopefully the last one!

Starting Weight: The highest I've ever been - 196

Present Weight: Somewhere between 180 - 190 (I'm not sure)

Goal Weight: 140-145, I think

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: FOOD, and learning how to eat right when at school/away from home (I've been at boarding school)... and in SOCIAL settings

Following any specific plan: I think I'm about to start Weight Watchers Online

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:
I feel like it wasn't my "time" before. Maybe I wasn't mature enough, but this time I'm so determined, especially with the support of groups like this one.

Anything else you would like to share with us:
I've had a lot of struggles with weight, and I'm definitely here to say that it is NOT worth it to lose weight the "wrong way" - eating right and exercising REGULARLY are really the only ways.
