Eye/Hair Color: Blue/Dark blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 8/1/2010

Starting Weight: 160

Present Weight: 160

Goal Weight: 120

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I eat for no good reason in addition to already eating for my health! & I have a hard time saying no...If junk food is in the house, if someone offers certain foods to me, etc. & Just occasionally not caring and giving up on eating mindfully due to stress.

Following any specific plan: Working on mindful eating for now, when i wean off the epic bingeing diet I plan to eat between 1200 and 1500 calories...

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I've really done the whole yo yo thing for the past few years...I'm getting tired of goin up and down...Would really like to maintain a consistent weight!

Anything else you would like to share with us: Just left my home in Hawaii of 9 years to move to Virginia a few months back and its a place I've never been to before. Shortly after arriving here, my parents are getting divorced and I won't see my mother again for prolly a few years. The added stress of this and the new responsibilities I have make staying motivated on a healthy eating plan much more difficult than I anticipated.

Occupation: Student and Preschool Teacher Aid

Pets: 2 amazingly adorable dogs. Trixie- doxie/min-pin mix and Sampson- Maltese/yorkie mix

Height: 5'2"

Goal Weight: 125

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Emotional eating, I'm terrible at controlling myself when emotions are flowing.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Before I was solely concerned with my looks, this time my main concern is my health, the health of my husband (who is working on a lifestyle change with me) and the health of our future children. I am also hoping that some of the emotional stressors that set me off track before won't be applicable this time.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I am very grateful for any support- this is a challenge for me as I have never had a healthy lifestyle.

I've managed to find time to post but haven't done of these yet.. here you go!



First name:Amanda, Manda

Geographical location: Daytona, FL

Age: 26

Marital Status: Married

Children/Ages: Just the 4 legged variety for now.

Occupation: Insurance Agent

Pets: Gizmo, 7 year old Schnauzer; Sara, 3 year old Doberman; B and SCSI approximately 9 year old felines.

Hobbies/Interests: Fishing, going to the beach/springs/pool, hiking with friends and the dogs (when not in danger of heat stroke), SHOPPING, shopping more, traveling, especially on cruises, camp fires

Height:5'6"

Eye/Hair Color:Brown eyed girl, with ever changing hair.. usually some variation of brown or auburn with blond highlights.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: A looong time.. but to simplify, from my highest, October 2009.

Starting Weight: 258

Present Weight: 230-ish.. fluctuates, but not sticking below 230 just yet.

Goal Weight: 150-ish. I'm more focused on how I look and feel, than the number on the scale.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Consistency! I can kick some serious booty, but I can get derailed so easily.

Following any specific plan: Nothing specific, but trying to minimize animal protein and maximize fresh fruits and vegetables.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I was severely traumatized by turning 25, and refuse to be gross when I should still be young and cute. I also finished a super strict diet cycle to kick start my loss and figure if I can be that strict for 30+ days, I can do anything reasonable for extended periods.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I hope I can offer as much support as I've been given so far.

Following any specific plan: not eating meat, consuming more plant proteins, daily multivitamin and supplements for my vitiligo, will start insanity 60 day workout on monday, aug 9 2010

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: i went cold turkey from eating meat to not eating meat (if the euphemism fits..hah!), fresher juice, produce and more grains and fiber, very minimal consumption of processed foods or animal products..i try to make a lot of things from scratch (breads, desserts and sweets included) and i make sure that none of what i make contains any trace of animal by product
