Default Re: 20-something profiles

First name: Juana

Geographical location: DC

Age: 22

Marital Status: Not married, but an awesome boyfriend 1,000 miles away =/

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: I work in political media

Pets: I have joint custody of the boyfriend's golden retriever

Hobbies/Interests: Watching way too much Army Wives, reading, live music

Height: 5'7"

Eye/Hair Color: Brown/dark brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: January 2011

Starting Weight: 200

Present Weight: 185

Goal Weight: 150

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Time! I work 12+ hours each day without more than a 20-25 hour break and commute an hour to work. So by the time I'm done, I rarely have the energy to do anything more than crash. I'd love tips from anyone who has ideas for carving out

Following any specific plan: I've been doing 30 Day Shred on and off, combined with a lower-calorie diet. My goal is to eat about 1200 per day with a good balanced mix of healthier foods. Due to a lot of work-related travel in the last few weeks, I've realistically taken in about 1500 a day. I'm also running my first 5K (!!!) Race for the Cure in June, so having something to train and prepare for is exciting.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm looking for a community. I've struggled with my weight in the past but it got way out of control (I gained 40 lbs) after I graduated college, accepted my first job and then lost said job all in a matter of six months. Since I'm living in a city where I don't know anyone, I hope to meet some cool people online who will back up my goal to get back to a healthier, happy weight.
