Default


Geographical location: United States
Pets: Two kitties.
Hobbies/Interests: I love to bake, game and read. And I have an interest in fair trade practices and organic gardening.
Height: 5'6"
Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 2.16.2014
Starting Weight: 216
Present Weight: 216
Goal Weight: 150 as of now. I may got a little lower when I get closer depending on how I feel about my shape.
Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I don't have a house that is conducive to weight loss. I'm usually stuck trying to get over hurdles and keep motivated by myself while also fighting temptation that I'm being bombarded with by relatives who KNOW I'm trying to lose weight. So it's a pretty big uphill battle.
Following any specific plan: No. Just trying to find ways to afford fresher fruits and veggies, and cut out bad fats and sugars. Keeping my calorie intake healthy and remembering to exercise.
What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: This is something I have to do regardless how difficult it is. There's the saying that everything is ok as long as you can say you still have your health, and with the number on the scale slowly climbing, my health is going down. I want to feel better (and of course look better). I'm also hoping to start having kids in the next couple of years and have PCOS along with general fertility problems in the way. I want to be as healthy as possible to hopefully ease the process. If I'm able to have kids, I want them to see me healthy and inspire them to be that way too.
Anything else you would like to share with us:
I'm happy to be here and hoping to find some support. My goal is also to be healthy and a low enough weight that I can go skydiving for my 30th birthday

S/C/G: 172/161/120-125

Height: 5'7"

Default

First name: Margeaux (pronounced mahr-go)

Geographical location: Montgomery, Alabama

Age: 20

Marital Status: Single, but dating.

Children/Ages: No kids, and I don't plan on changing that at any point in my life.

Occupation: Model. Pin-up is my specialty, but I do all kinds.

Pets: Battlecat, a massive 30-lb, 7y.o. orange tabby. He's a complete mama's boy. Gus, a 3y.o. pitbull/great dane mix who is absolutely convinced that he's a lapdog, despite being nearly 100lbs. Gatsby, a 1y.o. purebred Treeing Walker Coonhound whose main interests are bellyrubs, frolicking, and getting into the garbage. Last, but certainly not least, Salem, a 1y.o. solid black cat who is a bit skittish around strangers, but the sweetest cat you've ever met once she gets to know you. They're all rescues, some from abusive homes, and they are all my babies. They completely own my heart.

Hobbies/Interests: Spending time with my animals, creative pursuits, hiking, kayaking, running, blogging, cooking, etc.

Height: 5'7"

Eye/Hair Color:Coppery-red hair, green eyes.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: This time around, 2-22-14.

Starting Weight: 161.4lbs

Present Weight: 155.8lbs

Goal Weight: 120lbs

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Lack of willpower, still being in recovery from years of eating disorders (recovery never truly ends, as I'm sure some of you know).

Following any specific plan: As of right now, I'm recovering from a back injury, so nothing. But usualy, running 2x a week, eating as well as possible, and making healthier choices in everyday life. Soon, my main partner (I have several, I'm polyamorous, and happy to answer any questions about this) and I will be starting Jillian Michaels' 30-Day Shred and following a meal plan to go with that.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: My career is on the line this time. It's already suffered because I live somewhere that doesn't have a very high demand for models. That being the case, it's absolutely imperative that I find an agency as soon as I can. No agency will take me in my present shape, so I have to change.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I absolutely need to make friends for support and accountability (plus making friends is just fun), so if you want to chat, PLEASE message me! I don't really have many friends, despite being an extrovert, because the people in my town are just soul-crushingly dull. So let's be friends!

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey:
Feb. 2013

Starting Weight: 232

Present Weight:
210

Goal Weight: 160 (Aiming for 180 by the end of 2014, I like smaller goals but I *think* my end goal is 160...)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Realizing that it TAKES TIME!

Following any specific plan: I started following the 5:2 "diet" (I call it a way of life!) in August 2013

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: This is the first time I've ever done any sort of "diet" plan. And I am incredibly motivated by wanting to get fit for hiking in the Rockies this summer, after a miserable experience during a hike to summit a mountain in the Adirondacks last year. That was when I realized THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE. If I can't do what I love without feeling like I'm going to die, then what's the point?

Anything else you would like to share with us: This is my first post and I am looking forward to having a community to share with.
