First name: Nina

Geographical location: Paris, France

Age: 24

Marital Status: living with my awesome partner/boyfriend/fellow adventurer

Children/Ages: none yet, but hope to have some in about 10 years

Occupation: studying French, giving English lessons, nannying

Pets: 2 pet rats! Our apartment is too small for a cat or dog.

Hobbies/Interests: I love to be creative through painting, drawing, photography, learning new instruments and playing music, reading, learning new languages, being introduced to new cultures..

Height: 5'5''

Eye/Hair Color: Blue/Blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: I was heavy as a kid, and have just yoyo-ed up and down my whole life.

Starting Weight: I was heaviest at 188 when i was 15, but lost weight in high school. My current "starting weight" is 165, the heaviest I let myself become since then.

Present Weight: 147

Goal Weight: 120

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss: Not eating delicious cakes, cheeses, pasta dishes, fresh bread... Paris is full of temptation.

Following any specific plan: Eating more FRESH fruits and vegetables (the only meat I eat is fish, sparingly), cooking for myself instead of eating canned soup, portion control, making exercise a daily habit.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I've been steadily, although slowly, losing weight since I hit 165 in grad school a year ago. Not having a car and walking/biking everywhere in Paris has been really good for me, and I'm learning how to control my portions. This is not a fad, but lifelong changes that can be lived everyday.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm very excited to join a forum like this, to be accountable and honest, and to help others achieve their goals too!

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss: socialising. Deinking makes me eat and eat and eat. It's the only time i crave junk food.

Following any specific plan: not really, I'm naturally a pretty wholesome eater, I LOVE veggies fruit wholefoods etc. It's what I was raised on so it's my comfort food. I AM giving intermittent fasting a go now though to kick start my efforts, it suits my natural eating pattern and seems to be helping already!

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: this time I seem to have beaten my bulimia, and my life is a lot more settled than my student days!

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Calorie counting, actually looking at nutrition labels

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm all about learning, I want all kinds of criticism, I would love advice, I need that support from others who are going through what I am.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Officially, today.

Starting Weight: 252lbs

Present Weight: 248.6lbs

Goal Weight: At least 180lbs

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Being able to stay on track and not letting little trips knock me off course. Also, PORTIONS!

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Not having the support and having people around me who are on the same road as I am.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Just looking to give and get support. Also, some accountability and tough love is also good :-P

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: This time around, somewhere in September of 2010

Starting Weight: Highest weight: 253, this time around:240

Present Weight: 208

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I loose a couple lbs in the beginning of the month, then when Aunt Flo comes around, I want to eat everything & lots of it- so I stall or gain for a week, and by the end of the month I've only lost a total of 2-3 lbs!! Gotta really find a solution to that one...

Following any specific plan: Calorie counting & working on making more time for exercise

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:I dont know what clicked, but even when I only loose 2lbs in a month, thats still enough to keep me going- seeing that it is possible to get where I have never been weight wise.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Not really

Maggie, you and I are in the same boat girl. I'm doing WW online and I am having such a hard time without the support I got from the meetings. I never realized just how hard it is going alone until now. We can do this!!!
