Following any specific plan: South Beach Diet

First name: Kelly

Geographical location: Connecticut

Age: 24

Marital Status: single

Children/Ages: n/a

Occupation: currently unemployed

Pets: Tank (bearded dragon), Fiona (ferret), Madrox (ferret), BD ( full name Belladonna, ferret)

Hobbies/Interests: My interests are constantly shifting, but I always love reading, puzzles, crafts/arts, animals, and video games.

Height: 5'10"

Eye/Hair Color: Green eyes and brown hair

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: March 28, 2011

Starting Weight: About 300... I'll know a more exact number when I pick up batteries for my Wii Balance Board

Present Weight: 300

Goal Weight: 180

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I live with two good male friends and I've gotten into the habit of eating like they do and exercising as little as they do, which works just fine to maintain their weight, but is horrible for me.

Following any specific plan: For now I'm cutting down on the portions I eat and walking. In the past year I've been having back trouble, so I need low impact to start off. I can't wait for the day that I can do P90X. I tried it for a while when I was staying with a friend and it was so much fun!

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: In the past I wasn't doing this for myself, it was to affect how others saw me. Now I'm scared of how bad I've let it become, the effect that it is having on my health, and how much it is holding me back from doing things that I love.

Hi guys!

First name: Jae

Geographical location: Canada

Age: 21

Marital Status: single

Children/Ages: nope

Occupation: student

Pets: temporarily 1 cat via my roommate

Hobbies/Interests: movies, good TV (HBO/Showtime/AMC and all the stupid reality tv), design and architecture, fashion and make up, music, alcohol

Height: 5'4"

Eye/Hair Color: brown/black

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Dec 2009

Starting Weight: 238lbs at my heaviest

Present Weight: 170

Goal Weight: 140

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: to stop self-sabotaging my success and giving up because I get scared all the changes. Now I'm embracing the person I'm going to become through this journey.


Following any specific plan: Just calorie counting for the moment. I'm also trying to squeeze in walking whenever I can. I might try Weight Watchers later on.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm so over being fat. I've been this way my whole life and I finally woke up and saw what the big picture is. Also, I became a vegetarian the same time I started my weightloss and that's helped change my relation ship with food in a big way! I'm not dependent on food anymore and can say honestly that old lifestyle "isn't me".

Anything else you would like to share with us: done for now:)
