First name: Jessica

Geographical location: Alabama

Age: 25 (almost 26...good grief)

Marital Status: engaged - wedding is in 3 months

Children/Ages: 0

Occupation: Librarian

Pets: 3 cats (Princess, Boots, and Buddy)

Hobbies/Interests:Reading, Harry Potter, Watching TV, Movies, friends, cooking, baking, research, history, etc.

Height:5'9 3/4

Eye/Hair Color: Hazel/Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: June 8, 2009

Starting Weight: 209

Present Weight: 185

Goal Weight:145 (more or less)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I get REALLY busy and I forget to eat right. I also have a tendency to emotionally over-eat, it is a trait that runs in my family. Getting help for the emotional eating and I have done really good about it. I also forget to write things down and plan accordingly.

Following any specific plan: Calorie Counting and intense workouts

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: In June 2009, I was scared when I saw that I had hit 209. Never had any real health related issues related to my health but i knew that if I continued I would be a lot like my father. So one day, I just decided and I haven't looked back. It has been a very gradual and slow process but I have made healthy changes that have assisted me in maintaining my loss.


Anything else you would like to share with us: I am six pounds away from hitting my college weight. That is my mini goal for right now.

Starting Weight: 296.7 Lbs

Present Weight: 293

Goal Weight: 140

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: My excuses for exercise and my struggle with quitting smoking

Following any specific plan: Calorie counting and regular exercise

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I lost 40lbs in the past, and thought it was now part of my regular routine, 9 months later, the weight is completely back. This time I won't let up, I've realized this will be a life-time of watching and caring.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm getting married in August of 2012, and I don't necessarily need to be at my goal weight, but I sure would love to be able to enjoy the day without being out of breath, looking and feeling uncomfortable, and not feeling like people are staring at me for all the wrong reasons. My soon-to-be wife deserves this as much as I do.

Eye/Hair Color:Blue/Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: August 24 2011

Starting Weight:186.6

Present Weight:178

Goal Weight:140-145 I think it's normal to bounce around between a few pounds, especially around that time of the month

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Portion control and just overall over eating. I eat when I'm happy/sad/depressed/stressed and I am trying to stop that.

Following any specific plan: I started with Ideal Protein but due to the lack of knowledge of my coach and cost I just ordered from New Lifestyle

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:
This is truly my first big weight loss attempt. I feel like I'm at a good point in my life. I went through an ugly divorce, followed by an emotionally abusive relationship, followed by being a poor single mom. Now I'm in a good relationship with a man I hope to marry and I want to walk across the stage at my RN pinning ceremony skinny!

Anything else you would like to share with us:
I came to this support group from the Ideal Protein forum hoping to find young women I can identify more with.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I like many people have yo-yo-ed a lot in my life and I just want to do this and keep it off for good this time. I accept that making these life changes will have to be a forever thing.
