First name: Sophie

Geographical location: Toronto

Age: 21

Marital Status: Taken

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Student, although I pay to be one so it doesn't really count!

Pets: Milo, my roommate's cat, who should probably join this site

Hobbies/Interests: Cooking, Baking, Design

Height: 5'6''

Eye/Hair Color: Green/Blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: This week I suppose!

Starting Weight: 170 as of a couple weeks ago

Present Weight: Haven't weighed in so we'll say 170

Goal Weight: 130

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss: Where to begin?! I'm a student in Uni with a very tight budget, parties and after-party snacks are hurting my efforts, I love trying food and all sorts of desserts but just a taste is never enough...Oh and I very rarely get off my arse

Following any specific plan: Portion control - enjoying a bit of everything in moderation, and I tend to eat Mediterranean-ish but not following THE Medi. diet

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm living on my own! In high school it was a lot easier for me (although I never lost weight very healthily)

Anything else you would like to share with us: I want to stop my gradual weight gain before it gets out of control. At 170, I don't feel like myself, and I'm tired of shopping with the worry of not fitting into the largest main-range size!

Height: 5'5"

Default

First name: Erika

Geographical location: Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Age: 22 (My birthday was Thursday. 22 feels so much older than 21!)

Marital Status: long-term, live-in boyfriend

Children/Ages: none.

Occupation: Student, Waitress

Pets: none.

Hobbies/Interests: I'm pretty crafty and enjoy working with my hands. I also read like a fiend (I'm studying literature), and I like to write.

Height:5'5"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue/Brownish, Redish, Blondish (changes seasonally)

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: TODAY.

Starting Weight: 186

Present Weight: 181

Goal Weight: 135

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: emotional eating; being a college student and avoiding splurging with alcohol/take-out/dinners out with friends. I also work in a pizza restaurant where I get free food, so that is hard to pass up since I'm usually pretty low on money because I'm working my way through school.

Following any specific plan: My diet plan as of now mostly involves focusing on eating enough fruits & veggies. I find if I focus on eating enough portions of them every day, then I'm less likely to grab something else to snack on.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm ready. I have to put on a bathing suit for the first time in years in July and I want to be able to wear a bikini and not be ashamed or self-conscious of my belly/love handles/muffin top.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm ready!! No shenanigans this time. I refuse to be good and excited for a week and then lose my motivation like I have in previous attempts.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I never even made any efforts in the past, I just never believed I could do it. I never had any sort of will power or motivation to even start. Finally did and showed myself I could do it and just haven't stopped.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm also bipolar which adds some interesting struggles to all of this sometimes. I've got a blog on tumblr where I've been keeping track of my journey as I go and I'm more than happy for anyone interested to check it out, the name over there is fatgirlrevolution. I'm also always more than happy to chat/exchange pms/email with new friends/ladies that want to talk about the issues facing us every day.

Hey erikarae - sounds like we have a similar situation and goals, glad to know there's someone else out there. Working to pay my way through school is definitely a big hurdle to eating well... Good luck!
