First name: Ashley

Geographical location: Rapid City, SD

Age: 25

Marital Status: love him!

Children/Ages: still figuring out how to wipe my own you know what, so no babies yet

Occupation: Graphic Design

Pets: 2 kitties (Foxy, Bella), 1 puppy (Kelby- Shiba Inu)

Hobbies/Interests: I grew up dancing (ballet, jazz, etc..) but for some reason got too busy in college. I'd like to start back up. I also love art and occasionally get the inspiration to create something pretty.

Height: 5'6"

Eye/Hair Color: blue/blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: up and down since Spring 2003

Starting Weight: 166 this time around

Present Weight: 156.2

Goal Weight: 135 would be my favorite number, but I'm thinking 140 will be more attainable and realistic to maintain. Any suggestions?

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I love to sit down and drink a really cold beer with green olives. Mmmmm... but my main issue is maintaining my weight loss. I get to a size that I'm reasonably comfortable at, then get too comfortable and balloon up just to do it all over again. Each time I lose weight seems harder than the last, plus its terrible for my body. My goal is to reach a healthy weight and stay there.

Following any specific plan: LA Weight Loss, but I'm very curious about how you guys plan to lose and maintain, because I feel like I've been a bit brainwashed by LA since this is my 4th time around.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have made up my mind that this is a long term commitment, not just "oh I need to get skinny for summer!". I am very scared of losing control and never being able to drop the weight again. I'm determined to stop the cycle and be aware of everything I eat.

Starting Weight: 140

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: the 30 day slump, usually I can accomplish 30 days, then I'll either be away for a week or grow super busy and just never quite jump back on the wagon.. oh and i'm broke so groceries are hard to come by. I live with roommates but cook only for myself since my roommates eat food like pizza, poutine etc so meals for one aren't as fun.

Following any specific plan: healthier eating adjustments (lifestyle change), decreasing the sugar and fat, adding jogging routines and p90x on the days I have time.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey:April 4th, 2010 EASTER A NEW BEGINNING

Starting Weight: 287.4 lbs

Present Weight: 287.4 lbs

Goal Weight: Right now my number one goal is to break the 200 mark but my ultimate goal weight is 140-160 I want to be a size 10-12 so whatever numberthat is the number doesnt matter so much i just want to be in the 'medium' size range.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Sticking to my extended water fast. I know some people don't agree with it but I have completed 3 extended fasts with great results. So I'd really like to kick start this journey with an extended water fast but it's so hard to stay focused so... damn... hard!!!

Following any specific plan: An extended water fast then finishing with some juicing then a transitioning back into foods with a raw food diet for a bit. Just over a month before introducing myself back into meats and other foods that have been an issuse for me, so yup! thats the plan!!!

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I don't think there is much of a difference. I have moved to a new city and do not know to may people. With my friends n family from backhome everything revolved around food. When we hung out went out or just anything it was always about food. Go eat cause we were bored. Shopping lead to eating. If i was lonely I would eat. Anxious, then I'd eat so basiclly an emotional eater. lol I am wondering off the topic lol I have decided to immerse myself in this plan. my life will revolve around it. And Ithink thats great cause this will be life changing. I am setting goal and and crazy awesome rewards for myself when I reach them and it's ot going to be based around food. So I am going to try and stay focused!!!

Anything else you would like to share with us: I feel a little over whelmed after setting up my little 'tracking buddy' thing. Yikes do I ever has a chunk of weight to loss. I am really looking for surport. I get enough negative comments from douches and it would be sooo nice to try and surround myself with positive people. So if you an MSN chatter and up for it I'd love to chat more it'd be nice to have someone there to talk me down of the legde sort a speak when I am feeling like I need to inhale a cake lol that sounds really bad. But I remember from the past having someone in the same situation as myself have similar goals really helps when I am feeling weak or sad or just down when I am not seeign the results I am hoping for. I am not at all one of those girls that needs to be cowdled the intire time but every now and again a kind and encouraging word is can do sooo much for anyone, ya know!?!!!



(p.s- sorry for the spelling/grammer errors)
