First name: Lilly

Geographical location: Technically Jacksonville, NC but in Sacramento, CA while my husband is deployed

Age: 24 (2 months shy of turning 25)

Marital Status: Incredibly happily married

Children/Ages: none

Occupation: Financial Aid clerk

Pets: no pets just yet

Hobbies/Interests: Museums, art galleries, traveling and anything outdoorsy. Love exploring new cities

Height: 5'4

Eye/Hair Color: Eyes are hazel, hair is brown for now

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Technically began again in June of 2009...been losing slowly but surely

Starting Weight: 187

Present Weight: 152

Goal Weight: reassessing to 130, but 140 for now

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Exercising when I feel lazy and overeating on weekends. During the week I seem to do fine because Im at work but on the weekends Im pretty much alone so I dont have anything else to do besides eat it seems.

Following any specific plan: 30 day shred DVD workout and keeping a food journal/calorie counting

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Well I always used weight as a crutch and kept it on because i wanted a guy to love me for me and to see past the exterior, I made a promise to myself years ago that when I finally found that guy I'd let go of my security blanket. My husband proved to be that guy and well now I have no reason to hold on to this weight. Plus I want to lose weight before I have a baby.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Im really trying to work through these discouraging plateaus

S/C/G: 260/214.8/120

Height: 5'1"

Default

First name: Melinda

Geographical location: Ohio, right outside of Cinnci.

Age: 25

Marital Status: Married

Children/Ages: None right now

Occupation: I work as a contractor in the pet care department of a pretty big corporation. I'm in the call center / administrative part of it. I call shelters to get pet care kits out to them for the new adoptee's so people are better informed on how to take care of their new animal, respond to e-mails with questions about our product, and will also be doing phone work like answering phones on a hotline we have for people who just lost their pet so they have someone to talk too.

Pets: None at the moment due to our apartment. But I love animals, which is needed at my job.

Hobbies/Interests: I play video games, watch movies, and read lots of books. I also love taking leisure walks in nature and take lots of pictures of things around me.

Height: 5'1"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue eyes and Brown hair.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: July 16, 2011 - the last time I will ever need to start a diet (well, that is the plan).

Starting Weight: 258.4.

Present Weight: 258.4 (I only had one weigh-in).

Goal Weight: Well, right now I'm putting it at 140. Possibly, 130. But I wanted to do a realistic goal and I have no idea what I'll feel like once I actually get close.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: My love of food. Oh, and I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, so am stationary a lot due to unable to exercise hard.

Following any specific plan: Just calorie counting right now. I am up for changing it eventually, but can't afford to pay for any kind of plan / food thing right now.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: My husband and I plan to start a family, and I was told by my doctor that before I can realistically start one, I need to lose some weight. Plus, I want to be healthy for my husband and our future children.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I have an amazing support system in my husband, however 11 months ago when we got married I picked up a moved 12 hours away from my family and friends. It has put quite a bit of distance between me and a lot of people I miss greatly. It means that other than my husband, I really don't have much of a support system here. I do talk to my mom on the phone every single day though and keep in touch with a few good friends. However, we usually have more important things to discuss when we eventually get ahold of each other, so I'm not really discussing my weight loss with them. I am really going to be looking towards this forum for support in my weight loss journey.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I graduated from college last spring and am still struggling to establish my footing in the real world. I know losing weight isn't going to work miracles, but I hope that achieving my weight loss goals will motivate me to make other changes in my life that I've been putting off for a while.

But food fills the void when he isn't around, and that has to change.
