First name: Ashley

Geographical location: Southern Mississippi

Age: 26

Marital Status: Married

Children/Ages: Avery/4 (turns 5 this week) and Peyton/3

Occupation: Engineering Technician

Pets: 1 dog, Bella

Hobbies/Interests: reading, blogging (about my weight loss journey of course), spending time with my family, watching tv, and cooking.

Height: 5'4"

Eye/Hair Color: Brown/Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: December 2, 2013

Starting Weight: 163.8

Present Weight: 161.6

Goal Weight: 130-135

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Myself. I have no self-esteem and have a really hard time holding myself accountable, so I guess you could say I also have a really hard time with self-control.

Following any specific plan: Not at this time, focusing on counting calories, controlling my portions, and upping my exercise.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: There are several things, I've never been determined to do it before. I've always thought it'd be nice to lose the weight but I never put forth any real effort to make it happen. The main difference is that a few weeks ago I bought a dress that was an XL and when I tried it on it didn't fit, at that point I looked in the mirror and wondered how in the heck I ever got this way. I had a complete meltdown at that point and that was when I decided I absolutely had to take responsibility for my body and make the necessary changes to lose these 30 pounds.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I do have a gym membership, but it's to a small gym on the base that I work at and there aren't very many classes that they do so I'm basically stuck with free weights, elipticals, stationery bikes, treadmills, and a few other things. Mostly though, I will be doing this outside of the gym so I'm going to need a lot of support. My husband isn't always the most supportive person in the world even though he tries. He says he doesn't know what I need him to do. My family is very negative, most of them are overweight or obese but don't feel the need to make any changes to their lifestyle to get healthy. However, they're extremely critical of me and have no problems dishing out "weight loss" advice and telling me I'm fat or that I need to lose weight but they never look in the mirror. So, I have absolutely no support for them at all. Other than my husband watching the kids so that I can go for a walk or do an exercise video I'm in this alone and that is by far the hardest part of this whole journey.

Default New here, needing tons of motivation

First name: Krissy

Geographical location: Florida, USA

Age: 23

Marital Status: In a Relationship

Children/Ages
: None

Occupation: Paralegal

Pets: Two pups!

Hobbies/Interests: I used to be an avid intramural sports player in college, but since I've graduated I really don't do anything besides work and take the puppies to the park.

Height: 5'5

Eye/Hair Color: Blonde hair/green eyes

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: I technically started in January 2013. I would say November 2013 is when I got my first body assessment and wake up call.

Starting Weight: 130 pounds, 33% body fat.

Present Weight: 130 pounts, maybe a little less body fat.

Goal Weight: 20-23% body fat (I am not focused on pounds)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Not becoming impatient.

Following any specific plan: Eating as clean as possible, less cardio, more weights

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: The assessment really put my weight-to-fat ratio into perspective. It also made me think hard about my perceived health.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I've discovered that doing this alone is not easy. My boyfriend does not go to the gym and believes that just running will do the trick. I need a group of people to help keep me motivated and to share my progress, or lack thereof, with.

Starting Weight: 165 pounds

Present Weight: 160 pounts, maybe a little less body fat.

Goal Weight: 135 pounds or when I can fit into some of my favorite pairs of pants that I can't fit into now

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Controlling my emotional eating and my bad habits.

Following any specific plan: Eating smaller meals, working out at least 4x a week.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I am sick of not being able to fit into my pants/being embarrassed to wear form fitting clothing. I quit my evening job which only gave me 1 hr in between my first and second job. I also reinstated my 24 fitness gym membership and picked a gym where I can NOW take classes each day after work =)

Anything else you would like to share with us: I've discovered that I am an emotional eater (when I feel upset or sad). I've been working on controlling it!

Default Hi everyone...

First name: Kate

Geographical location: Arizona

Age: 23

Marital Status: In a Relationship (5 years!)

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Student

Pets: One hamster named Taffy

Hobbies/Interests: Hiking, doodling, painting, reading

Height: 5'4"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue eyes, light brown hair

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: I haven't really needed to lose weight until recently..so now I guess? haha!

Starting Weight: 170

Present Weight: 170

Goal Weight: 135, maybe less if I feel like I need it?

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss: I get bored with things really easily so I think that if I want to keep losing weight I need to switch up my exercise plans and food choices pretty regularly. I also hate counting calories, I feel like it takes too much time so that may be a problem lol.

Following any specific plan: I've never really tried to lose weight before so I'm kind of lost on where to begin...I am going to try to start forcing myself to exercise more, count calories again, and buy more fruits and veggies instead of breads and meat. Oh and MORE WATER!

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have never felt this way before and I realized I had problems when all I could think about was how ugly and fat I was in the mirror...the nagging is always there in the back of my mind when I wear anything and when I had to go up to a size 14 I was so ashamed of myself. It's especially bad now and it seems like being fat is all I can talk/think about so I decided that it's a new year and I want to feel and look my best when I graduate.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I've read a few posts in this community before and I joined My Fitness Pal but I didn't really feel comfortable there so I'm hoping that this is the one for me If you have any tips for newbies please PM me since I do feel a little lost and ashamed.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I don't like going to the gym and I don't have much space at home. Plus, I don't have a lot of money for all the healthy food I'd like to eat because I don't live alone and we're on a tight budget.

Following any specific plan: I'm following my own workout and diet plan from several years ago which worked like a charm. Working out three times a week (and gradually increasing that to 4 and five times a week) plus calories counting (1300 calories a day).
