Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Emotional eating and lack of confidence

Following any specific plan: normal/healthy balanced eating, everything in moderation, NOT calorie counting as this has made me obsessive in the past. I would like to try intuitive eating.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I won't be calorie counting because it made me obsessed with calories instead of health. And it made me feel deprived in the past.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I look forward to sharing my journey with you all!

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Motivation, will-power...I am impatient and losing weight isn't an overnight process. When I don't see immediate results I feel discouraged and just lose all focus and gain the weight back.

Following any specific plan: Right now I want to cleanse my body, maybe eat fruits for a week? Then slowly introduce vegetables and lean meats into my diet again.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I want to do it for myself. I hope to use this forum as a support system, too.

Eye/Hair Color: Hazel

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 15 October 2010

Starting Weight: 195

Present Weight: 195

Goal Weight: 145

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: dealing with back pain- herniated degenerative disc, and trying to take off weight from steroids (Prednisone is EVIL...but it feels sooo good...)

Following any specific plan: calorie counting and exercising

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: the calorie counting part...and it's no longer just "a little extra pudge" I'm seriously overweight.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I've been struggling with weight for as long as I can remember, but I was always confident about my body. My attitude was "yes, I could lose some weight, but I still look good" Now it's I need to lose weight or I'm going to get discharged from the army and my back pains only going to get worse.

Geographical location: Japan! (but i'm originally from Montreal, Canada)

Age: .... 29.

Marital Status: newly in a relationship!

Children/Ages: don't have any as of now, but i want some!

Occupation: ALT (that's assistant language teacher) i teach english at a junior high school in Japan.

Pets: don't have any, but i love them.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: mid-july 2010

Starting Weight:86.5kg (190lbs)

Present Weight: 80kg (178lbs)

Goal Weight: 68kg (150lbs) and if i get there, then on to 59kg (130lbs)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: motivation. i just bored and start asking myself "what's the point?" and then give up...

Following any specific plan: just checking calories. not journalling because i used to do it before and i'm pretty much always eating the same thing anyways, and i don't wanna make myself crazy. i try to eat lots of whole foods and really limit the carbs.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: i'm 29 and turning 30 freaks me out! i don't wanna be a fat 30 years-old! also, i've set myself doable mini-goals, i think... my mom told me she was gonna buy me a samantha thavasa bag (200$-400$) if i lost 10kg so originally that was the main goal! and my bf said he'd take me on a trip somewhere when i lost 20kg! it's good motivation that comes from outside because, since i'm a shopaholic, i tend to give myself presents all the time! lol.

Anything else you would like to share with us: hmm... i've been living in Japan for over 2 years and i really love it here. my first language is actually french. i've been fat/tubby all my life. i've never been under 165lbs as an adult. so i'm hoping to break that boundary!!!

Hello everyone! I'm brand new to this site and I'm still not sure how everything works. I really hope this will help me with this neverending weightloss journey I have been in for the last 3 years now. I do ok for a few days and then everything seems to go down hill. It's really hard to stay motivated....especially when it seems like everyone you know can eat whatever they want without gaining a pound. I know it's going to be difficult, but I know I will eventually be able to be at the weight I want to be. Congrats to all of you who have been doing so well!!! You can be my motivation!!
