Children/Ages: none

Occupation: Working as a paralegal, in grad school for MBA

Pets: none

Hobbies/Interests: I love to read, go to movies, get pedicures, and watch NFL football (Go Patriots!)

Height: 5' 10"

Eye/Hair Color: Brown hair, greenish hazel eyes

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: I've been overweight since middle school, seriously started to lose in March of 2009, struggled on and off for a few years, and my most recent start date is 1.19.12

Starting Weight: 220 +

Present Weight: 205

Goal Weight: 155

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I love to sit on the couch and binge eat. I also have recently realized how much I love sweets. I never considered myself much of a sweet tooth, but over the holidays, rarely a trip to the grocery store would pass without my stopping by the bakery and picking up a cupcake or slice of cheesecake. Also- I have a history of getting off track and having a very hard time picking it back up.

Following any specific plan: Weight Watchers

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I don't want to waste my life anymore. I can't wear the clothes I want, and I feel uncomfortable around new people. I want the world to see the person that I know is there.
