Height: 5'8

Default

First name: Nicole

Geographical location: Iowa

Age: 25

Marital Status: Married

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Perpetual Student(prereqs to become a chiropractor)

Pets: 3 dogs, and 3 cats

Hobbies/Interests: Working out, reading, hiking, biking, skiing, crafting in the winter, decorating, gardening, couponing, movies

Height: 5'8

Eye/Hair Color: Blue and Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: April 2008

Starting Weight: 212+(I didn't weigh myself the first two weeks because I was scared of the number on the scale)

Present Weight: 179.4!

Goal Weight: I *think* my goal is 160 and toned, but it's been SO long since I've been anywhere near 160(and I wasn't toned at the time) that I honestly don't know. I think it'll be a matter of finding a point where I'm comfortable with how I feel and look, and sticking with it. I've been a size 12 for over a year now, and while I know I'd like to be smaller, I can't imagine smaller than an 8.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Sticking with it. I will never be a girl that can just say, oh, I'm not going to bother *doing something important to weightloss/maintenance* for a week. I might have off days, but I have to be hard on myself to stay on track--the 10 pounds that I regained this winter is evidence of that!

Following any specific plan: I have a GoWear Fit, so I track my calories burned. I generally don't track what I eat, because I'm such a creature of habit when it comes to food, that logging the same food plan every day(within about 100 calories of variance) gets old fast. If I eat majorly out of the norm, I will log, just to see what I am up against.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: My husband and I are having a public vow renewal on a beach in Jamaica next January, and we're now working out together. Also, I'm 25. It's time to stop hating what I look like.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm always looking for buddies to talk with online. PM me if you wanna chat!

First name: Kristy

Geographical location: memphis area

Age: 32

Marital Status: married almost 6 years (March 15th)

Children/Ages: 2 boys 13 & 7

Occupation: don't work

Pets: mini schnauzer, black cat, snowshoe cat, corn snake

Hobbies/Interests: gardening - mainly roses, clematis, hostas. - crafts & travel

Height: 5'1"

Eye/Hair Color: Green/Blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: dunno - about 3 years ago

Starting Weight: 160

Present Weight:140

Goal Weight: 115-120ish

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: 3 years ago I was at my best. Strong as ever, 115 pounds, running easily 13-15 miles every Saturday & 5-6 miles everyday during the week. Then both of my parents passed. The world stopped & I quickly put on about 45 pounds. The hardest thing for me is to put that out of my head as much as possible. Focusing is a hard thing for me, but I just go day to day the best I can. In the gym, I turn up my ipod as loud as it will let me & just let it all go. It is still a struggle everyday to not break down & hide in my own little world, but the fact is, my parents would be very disappointed in me if they knew I was hurting myself b/c I was hurting for them.

Following any specific plan:
Yep, My own ..... NO whining, NO excuses, NO BS, NO poor me blah-blah, GIVE 110% EVERYDAY! If I'm sweating like mad, sweat another 30 minutes then be done. Get up & do it again tomorrow.

Starting Weight:187

Present Weight:187

Goal Weight: 145

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I need to quit smoking, it impairs my overall health. Also lack of support, while my hun is supportive of MY weightloss he stands 5'11 @ 155 lbs :\ and can eat anything and still LOSE weight... I know it's all about the metabolism and his working in construction but watching him eat and eat to maintain weight does suck... a lot.

Following any specific plan:I lost 40lbs 2 years ago with WW in mind although i didn't follow plans or rules... I guess just watching what I eat and getting more active should do the trick.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I need to better my health and I have an actual goal in mind. I REFUSE to be a fat bride... and my hun keeps dropping hints soooo just to be safe I need to attempt to lose this weight.
