Default Hello everyone!

Hi everyone. I've been stalking the forums for over a year, but this is my first time deciding to post. I'm getting married this fall and the yo-yo has got to stop. I'm sick of it, and I want to be in good shape so I can match my very athletic and muscular fiance FINALLY!

First name: Brittani

Geographical location: Kansas

Age: 28

Marital Status: Recently engaged!

Children/Ages: No. Nope. None. I love other people's kids though... they go home.

Occupation: Billing and Coding -- Healthcare

Pets: I have two dogs and a cat, all boys.

Hobbies/Interests: Hiking, camping, kayaking, backpacking, fishing, rock climbing, gardening... pretty much anything outdoors. I also like to read a lot and take photos.

Height: 5'7"

Eye/Hair Color: Light brown or hazel/Dark brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Since I can remember, but officially May 2012.

Starting Weight: 194

Present Weight: 171

Goal Weight: 130

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Complacency. I get to a point where i'm comfortable and maintain, then sort of lose track of my goals until I gain a little bit of weight and freak out. January I had gotten down to 162, but I got lazy and gained 10lbs, and got motivated to start again. I just want to make goal once and for all and stay there.

Following any specific plan: No. Just clean and heathy eating and regular exercise.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I am getting married in September, I am going to be wearing a sari, and while I know I won't lose 40lbs by then I want to be in significantly better shape than I am in right now. I need my midriff to be on point for pictures. Also, we are thinking we might want babies in the next few years and there is no way i'm getting pregnant unless i'm in terrific, athletic shape -- for my benefit and for the baby since i'll be embarking on that quest at a much older age than most of my peers and I want any advantage I can get.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Not really. Nice to meet all of you!

First name: Alyssa

Geographical location: West Michigan

Age: 23

Marital Status: Married

Children/Ages: N/a

Occupation: Student, Retail, and Photographer

Pets: 2 cats: Spartacus and Jasmine

Hobbies/Interests: Scrapbooking, Outdoor activities (I LOVE the water), running, reading, debating, anything and everything really.

Height: 4' 11"

Eye/Hair Color: Natural Black hair and Dark Dark brown eyes

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: I suppose all of my life? My weight has been a constant battle since about middle school. Not so much in my lower elementary years.

Starting Weight: 200lbs.

Present Weight: 184

Goal Weight: Science and Doctors say I should be 98-123 (ish) lbs. My heritage says my average weight will be around 145. So, I'm shooting for 130!

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Myself. I know nothing about my parents or what issues they might have had to deal with in their 20's in regards to weight. They have run a million tests and bloodwork has all been done and the science says I'm healthy as a teenager. Yet I am still obese! It is frustrating. I'm also an extremely picky eater and have been through numerous stints of eating disorders.

Following any specific plan: Not yet, maybe someone can point me in the right direction. Don't say calorie counting, please. You can swear by it but they hold no power with me.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Honestly, nothing. I have the same motivation and same obstacles I've always had. I'm just older and possibly wiser?

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm extremely shy and often take words the wrong way. I'm not joking when I say I have tried and been through everything in the book. Name it, I've probably tried it. Also, I'm a Michigan State fan! I live for football season! Nice to meet everyone, and I look forward to chatting soon!!

Occupation: graphic designer (although I am currently on extended leave until 2015)

Pets: a (rescued) black shepherd, Link, the sweetest and kindest dog ever!

Hobbies/Interests: crafting, sewing, surfing, makeup, shoes, ~glitter~

Height: 5'3

Eye/Hair Color: green/blonde (though I just recently went dark red)

Starting Date of Weight Loss Journey: April 24, 2014. It was a Wednesday - I know because for three weeks prior, I kept saying "next Sunday... Next Monday..." And on Wednesday I woke up and said, you know what? It's now or never.

Starting Weight: 195

Present Weight: 185.0

Goal Weight: 115

Biggest Hurdle to Overcome in Weightloss: eating - I typically eat only one meal (dinner) and will not stop what I'm doing to make or eat something when I am hungry, which means I eat nearly all of my calories at dinner and right before bed.

Also, my husband is deployed and a medic who tends to fret over the smallest bruises, so I haven't told him what's going on. It's very hard not having his support, but he has other things he needs to focus on.

Following any specific plan: just counting calories and lots of cardio for now. I'll adjust later as necessary.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts in the past: I've never tried losing weight in the past, so this is uncharted territory for me!

Anything else you would like to share with us: my husband is deployed until the end of November, and I'd really like to lose most of this weight by then. Our son is also struggling with being underweight/classified as FTT, so he needs a very different diet and I'm trying hard to make sure we both get what we need.
It's crazy how much we have in common! I live in Killeen, so we live pretty close to each other. My five year old son is also underweight, so I have to make separate meals for all of us. My ex-husband and I were both active duty, but he got hurt on deployment and is now medically retired. We are currently back together trying to work things out, but that's a whole other issue. I chose to not continue in the military because I wanted to be home with my kids more. Anyway, I just thought it was so awesome finding someone I had so much in common with, so I had to respond to you. Good luck in your journey!

Occupation: Men's Dep. at JCPenney

Pets: 8 kitties and a parakeet

Hobbies/Interests: Flute, sewing, theater (crew, not acting), makeup, swimming

Height: 5'3"

Eye/Hair Color: green eyes, light brown hair

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: September 2012

Starting Weight: 220

Present Weight: 195

Goal Weight: ~150

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Motivation. I have SO much trouble sticking to a work out routine for more than two or three weeks.

Following any specific plan: Not at the moment. Just going to work and eating less.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I've seen progress. I started my job one month ago and I noticed stuff like my new pants not fitting, my collar bones being more pronounced, rings fitting looser even. Before I even weighed myself. It's great to actually see weight coming off instead of wondering if my scale is just a little off today or if it's power of suggestion from the number on the scale going down.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I have PCOS, possibly thyroid problems (currently waiting on the second batch of blood work) and this is the first time I've been under 200 lbs since I was like 14 so nearly 5 years.

First name: Mimi.

Geographical location: Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Age: 21.

Marital Status: Single.

Children/Ages: None.

Occupation: Full-time student, but I am a Residence Advisor during the school year.

Pets: One rambunctious cat who drives me up the wall.

Hobbies/Interests: I love hanging out with my friends, going to new restaurants, cooking for people I care about, baking, reading, watching television, and exploring the city.

Height: Almost 5'2"

Eye/Hair Color: Dark brown hair, lighter brown eyes.

Starting Date of Weight loss Journey: October 2012.

Starting Weight: 170 lbs.

Present Weight: 160 lbs.

Goal Weight: 115 lbs.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss: I love to eat. I do this thing where I eat a lot of delicious food in one day because I say I'm going to start dieting tomorrow, and then the next day rolls around and I say the same mantra...this can go on for weeks...I unintentionally gain weight before I start a diet.

Following any specific plan: Signed up for Weight Watchers for 3 months. It's exactly like calorie counting so I think it was a waste of money, but we'll see what happens. The fact that I'm paying for it means I gotta stick with it, right? I'm also doing a DietBet right now (google it).

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Well, I lost 25 lbs last year and unfortunately gained 15 lbs of it back. This time I'm going to lose it FOR GOOD!

First name: Lindsey

Age: 27

Marital Status: Single (and too picky, if you ask most people, haha)

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Teacher

Pets: Jack Russell terrier

Hobbies/Interests: Church, reading, nearly any fun thing...

Height: 5'8"

Eye/Hair Color: Mostly green, sometimes brown / light brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Somewhere around age 15 (when I didn't need to lose!!), but 2008 is when I reached my heaviest weight and really started seeing measurable results.

Starting Weight: 226

Present Weight: 205 (had lost down to around 194 in March, but had a "fall off the wagon" season).

Goal Weight: 178. More than what BMI charts indicate, but I'm big-boned, so that looks pretty thin on me.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Tracking and snacking! I can plan a healthy meal, but I reach for terrible snacks, and I can put away 2000 calories in no time flat. And then I always neglect to write anything down.

Following any specific plan: Bounce back and forth between WW Points and counting calories. I'm about to try iTrackBites on my iPhone.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm more toned, even though I have had a gain. I discovered CrossFit in the last year, and it has done wonders for my fitness level. But I never got my eating under control, so I still have a layer of "fluff" over all the muscle! I haven't been to a workout in 3 weeks, but I paid my registration this week so I can start again on Monday, haha.

Anything else you would like to share with us: That I'm DESPERATE to finally get this weight off! I seriously have never once reached a goal weight that I set, so I need all the support I can get!
