Pets: Two springers

Hobbies/Interests: Medicine, Psychology, Anthropology, Knitting, Writing, Reading, Music, Movies, Piracy (arr mateys!)

Height: 5'8"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue eyes, Various colors of chemically altered hair

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Feb. 1, 2010

Starting Weight: 296.5lbs

Present Weight: 296.5lbs

Goal Weight: 150lbs

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: My clinical depression, which is of course only greatly aggravated by my lack of exercise and proper diet

Following any specific plan: Not exactly--just plan on eating healthier, smaller portions and exercising as much as I can in the beginning. Don't want to set an exercise routine until I'm adapted to the change and I'm more aware of what I'm capable of.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm being more open and honest and seeking support instead of remaining isolated in denial.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I guess I could share some of my history....I have always been overweight. Even as a little kid I was constantly teased and segregated from my peers, convinced I was slightly less of a person than they were. No matter how smart I am, I still feel like a failure because of my weight. So now I'm being honest with myself and everyone else, putting negativity and toxic aspects of my past behind me and I'm starting again.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Umm... Been going on and off for a while, so we'll just say the start of the most recent--January 14, 2010.

Starting Weight: 172 way back when, 163 on January 14

Present Weight: 158

Goal Weight: 135

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Laziness/excuses

Following any specific plan: Counting my calories not so much as to keep under a certain limit, but to keep myself accountable for what all I eat in a given day. Also, I'm cutting back the fast food to 2 nights a week.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm keeping myself accountable, and am going to try and stop making excuses.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Umm... I guess that I've always been overweight and lived on a diet of fast food as a child. I'm also going to Hawaii this summer to stay a month with my older sister and her family, and I will be able to wear a bathing suit without being embarrassed about it!

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, music, hgtv, uhm...chillin' like a villain?

Height: 5'3"

Eye/Hair Color: blue eyes and brown hair

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: It's been a struggle of mine for the last 10 years, but I'm starting yet again, so Feb 2nd 2010

Starting Weight: Uhm 270ish I think.

Present Weight: 270ish

Goal Weight: I don't have one. Well, under 200 is my current goal, and I guess 140-150 would be my ideal, I just don't think it's possible, so I'm aiming for under the 200 mark as of right now.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Laziness, procrastination.

Following any specific plan: Nothing specific, no. Becoming fully aware of what's going into my mouth.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm 25 this year, and I've wasted 10 years of being fat and miserable. I think that's long enough. I also have 4 weddings this year as well as I'm a bridesmaid in a wedding next year, so, not being a blimp would be awesome.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I can't think of anything, but ask away.

Hobbies/Interests: travel, shopping, reading, cooking, good conversation with friends, drinking, music, being silly, watching trashy tv

Height: 5'10"

Eye/Hair Color: brown/brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 10/08

Starting Weight: 320

Present Weight: 250

Goal Weight: 190-ish?

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: i love food and i have major issues with self control. i just always have a compulsion to eat whatever's in front of me. i also am an emotional eater and will snack when i'm bored, upset, anxious etc.

Following any specific plan: started with weight watchers which really helped jump start my weight loss and helped me understand how much i'm supposed to be eating every day, but i dropped it after a few months because 1. it's expensive and 2. i honestly couldn't keep up with tallying points day in and day out. i try to still follow it loosely and sort of keep count in my head, but now i'm just trying to eat healthy, not eat too much, and exercise 4-5 times a week.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: i'm an active participant in my own health now. before i was waiting for something to change, something to happen that would make me take the next step, but i've made a conscious decision to do this and to see it through this time around. and i'm trying to be nicer to myself... i mess up, and i fall off the wagon, and that's okay. we're all human, right?

Anything else you would like to share with us: i love having friends to vent to/share with/help kick my *** when i need it. and i LOVE hearing about what's working for other 20 somethings out there....

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Recently, I was at a wedding with all my college friends (hadn't seen them in about 3-5 years) and they had all lost weight and looked amazing.
