Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I have so little self control. Also I love food, I am such a foodie, and I can't resist a delicious meal.

I will be getting engaged/married soon & my life goal would to be a size 8 to try on dresses. I think the motivation of the happiest day in my life will keep me going...hopefully...

Anything else you would like to share with us: I was just recently diagnosed with IBS & I think eating better will help alleviate some of those symptoms.

I really enjoyed reading everyone's profiles as well. I am really excited to be joining such a supportive and wonderful community!

Occupation: Student, lab tech

Pets: I wish!!!

Hobbies/Interests: I'm sort of the stereotypical nerd (comics, tabletop rpgs, the works) which is why I don't want to LOOK like one!

Height: 5'7"

Eye/Hair Color: Grey-ish blue, light brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: May 2012

Starting Weight: 193

Present Weight: 168

Goal Weight: 150 for now

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Impulse snacking/"cheat days", especially when my non-dieting friends are indulging

Following any specific plan: calorie counting

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm cooking for/feeding myself now. It was more difficult to diet when I was living at home since my siblings are very picky, my father is very southern (and fries everything! frustrating!) so I couldn't always eat as well as I liked. I've also seen a lot of success (for the first time ever) so I'm determined to go all the way!

Starting date of weight loss journey: November 1, 2012
Starting weight: 227.4 (all-time high was 238)
Present weight: Won't find out until tomorrow morning!
Goal weight: 185.4 (overweight BMI) for now. I'll have to reassess when I get there.
Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss? I work long hours and don't have a lot of time for much else at present.
Following any specific plan? I followed Weight Watchers before and will probably do so again once I make exercise a solid habit. One thing at a time.
What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past? For right now, I am focused on trying to improve my overall fitness while making more conservative eating choices, but not tracking calories or points yet. In the past, I would try to do too many new things at once, get frustrated and give up. I hope I have learned from that.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: At the moment I am between jobs but once I start my new job and move out I will have to be responsible for my own diet. I don't know how that will work out!
