Smile Hello

First name: Ashley

Geographical location: Syracuse, NY

Age: 23

Marital Status: Co-habitating

Children/Ages: Nil

Occupation: Physical Therapist (in 5 months)

Pets: 1 cat and 1 dog

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, movies, hiking

Height: 5'5"

Eye/Hair Color: Brown/brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 01/01/2011

Starting Weight: 160

Present Weight: 160

Goal Weight: 125-130

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Motivation. Stress- I am finishing up grad school and it seems like there is a sabotage around every corner.

Following any specific plan: Calorie counting/cutting out junk, workout DVDs and getting back into running which used to be a passion of mine

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: The last I weighed 160lbs and I lost 35, I became obsessive about it, which is not a recipe for maintaining it for life. This time I plan on making changes I can stick with, and although I want to lose it by summer, if I don't that is okay too. I also joined a forum last time and checked in daily which was very helpful.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I always have had a skewed perception of myself, so while I want to work on physical I also want to work on staying positive and healthy emotionally.

Default About me =]


First name: Ali

Geographical location: Indiana

Age: 19 (20 in april)

Marital Status: Long term relationship, but recently long distance :/

Children/Ages: none

Occupation: Full time student

Pets: Cat at home

Hobbies/Interests: Psychology, Softball, Photography, Music, etc.

Height: 5'7

Eye/Hair Color: Green/Red

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: January 2011

Starting Weight: 189 lbs (highest I have EVER been)

Present Weight: 185 lbs

Goal Weight: 135-140 lbs (what I weighed in high school)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Dealing with constantly feeling tired and then recently switching from zoloft to wellbutrin after being on zoloft for 3 1/2 years..so the not so pretty transitioning side effects that are making me want to stay in bed all day... but I am loving the curbing of my appetite!

Following any specific plan: I had previously tried weight watchers, but it came to the point with me living in the dorms and having to a meal plan through school that I did not have enough time to plan out everything. I am going to work out 5 days a week. I am going to sign up for some fitness classes through our recreation center at school - Yoga, All About Arms, and H.a.b.i.t (hips, abs, buns, thighs) and thinking before i eat!

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I actually have things to motivate me. My boyfriend was recently offered a job in Wyoming and I will not be seeing him until March(only for a week sadly) and then for a month this summer. He is planning on moving back in a year. So, with that being said I want to do this for myself..I want to feel comfortable in my own skin and in my clothes without having to spend 15 extra minutes trying on clothes in the mornings and still feeling unsatisfied. And additionally, since my boyfriend goes to the gym 5 days a week and runs 2 miles 7 days a week..I want him to think wow, she really cares about herself and her body..and a wow factor in general

Anything else you would like to share with us:Not currently, but I am really happy that I found this forum and am able to talk with other individuals that are going through the same things, as well as similar weights/heights/age!

Occupation: Customer Service

Pets: 1 kitty, 1 doggie

Hobbies/Interests: Bowling, swimming, music, movies, decorating, scrapbooking, knitting, drawing.

Height: 5'9"

Eye/Hair Color: Brown/Green

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 01.07.11

Starting Weight: 277

Present Weight: 276

Goal Weight: 147

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Ugh, the whole process is hard, haha. Hmm, probably giving up fast food while not having access to a kitchen to cook my meals when I want to.

Following any specific plan: Staying between 1400-1600 calories, avoiding most foods that have more than 30% fat from calories, walking, Xbox fitness games, eating small portions throughout the day.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I've never really incorporated activity and exercise before. I always felt that I could lose weight with just food...which I can, I just don't keep the weight off for very long.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I plan to set my weight loss goals as 10% of my starting weight. So, starting at 277, I'd like to lose 28 pounds. When I reach 249, my next goal will be to lose 25 pounds...so on and so forth. It will eventually lead me to the 140's, where I'd like to maintain my weight.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I am trying to reconcile what I see in the HAES philosophy with my desire to reduce my weight by at least 15% for both health and vanity's sake.
