First name: Michelle (or Michi)

Geographical location: Rhode Island

Age: 21

Marital Status: Boyfriend

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Student - Accounting major

Pets: 3 cats all back at home

Hobbies/Interests: Hello Kitty, Cooking, Student Government, Reading, French Language

Height: 5' 3"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue eyes, Dark Blonde hair

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: January 5th, easing in; January 16th, official start of calorie counting

Starting Weight: 255+ (guesstimate; was 253 in June 2010, probably gained past it though)

Present Weight: 249

Goal Weight: Ultimately, a size 14 which for me would be around 160 - 165 I think

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I love food, especially fast food, restaurant food, and comfort food (Mac and Cheese is my #1). I hate exercising too.

Following any specific plan: Calorie counting (1,800 a day to start, will adjust as I lose)

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm actually counting calories and focusing on staying full as long as possible by drinking tons of water. I was inspired by a friend who recently lost 90+ pounds, too.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm happy to start my journey and already excited to see I've lost some weight! It's been much easier than I thought it would be so far, and I found out that 1,800 calories a day leaves a lot of room for yummy foods. Thanks for reading

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Seeing my husband eat eveything he wants without gaining an ounce!

Following any specific plan: Calorie counting and drinking lots of water!

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I was so depressed and physically exhausted that I thought something was really wrong. I thought I was severly depressed and would have to back on an anti depressant after working so hard to get off them. After just one week eating healthy I felt sooo much better. No longer exhausted all the time, I had lots of energy and felt like a huge cloud had been lifted off my shoulders! Everytime I think I wants some chips I tell myself that if I eat these chips I will be back on anti depressants. Thats enough motivation for me!!

Anything else you would like to share with us: I also have psoriasis and I think that for a long time I didn't care about losing the weight due to the condition my skin was in. So while I am battling my weigh I am also trying to battle psoriasis!
