First name: Megan

Geographical location: Houston

Age: 21.3 (ok, really, 24)

Marital Status: Engaged

Children/Ages: 0

Occupation: Law Student, graduating May 2013!!

Pets: Holley, a teacup poodle, 12; Belle, a beagle, 4.5

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, shopping, napping, cooking, football, shows on HBO, Shotime, and BBC.

Height:5'4"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue and Blonde (not naturally-- auburn natural)

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 05/2011

Starting Weight: 173

Present Weight: 148

Goal Weight: Anywhere from 125-135... I'd like to be down to at least 135 by the time I get married in April.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: My sweet FH loves to eat junk, never works out, and looks AWESOME! Well, who can say no to a milkshake?! I also need help motivating myself to workout in the mornings before school and work.

Following any specific plan: Not really... I did the HCG drops originally and got down to 138, but then I gained 10 lbs back because it is a quick fix. I am trying to cut out carbs (breads, pastas, etc.) and sugars. Cutting out diet coke is HARD. I have been running and I want to try to do the 30 Day Shred and Insanity.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I realize there is no quick fix and that my metabolism is completely gone. I realize that if I don't get to where I want to be now by eating healthy and getting into a good routine, that I will blow up once I have children and fast food becomes easy. I don't want that. Preventative measures is key

Hobbies/Interests: Family, friends, Ohio State football, boating, riding horses

Height: 5'4

Eye/Hair Color: Green eyes, brown hair

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 1/02/2013

Starting Weight: 206.6lbs

Present Weight: 206.6lbs

Goal Weight: 145-150lbs

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Keeping other people from influencing my decisions regarding food, alcohol, exercise, etc. My husband tends to be the one who influences my decisions the most - which makes it hard considering I live with him!

Following any specific plan: Counting calories & plan to slowly start implementing a workout routine.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I was an active 3FC member about 3 years ago and successfully lost about 40lbs. Even though I didn't hit my actual goal number, I was comfortable at about 145-150lbs and didn't feel the need to lose much more. Unfortunately that comfort, along with some stressful personal ordeals, and the fact that I started working a desk job (therefore get VERY little physical activity) led me to gain all of the weight back, plus more. I already know what I need to do to lose the weight - I've done it before! This time around I plan to work harder at maintaining the loss once I've achieved it.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Although I wish I was coming back under better circumstances, I'm happy to be back & interacting with everyone again! 3FC was a HUGE part of my weight-loss journey the last time around. I look forward to talking to and getting to know all of new people who have joined since I've been gone!

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Jan. 2, 2013

Starting Weight: 216.5

Present Weight: 216.5

Goal Weight: 166lb to 140lb

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: sugar, starch, anxiety

Following any specific plan: no; just attempting to exercise and break a sweat for at least 35min daily

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm determined; I plan to push myself. I have a different outlook on fat. 2 years ago, I was 40-45lbs lighter. I was a vegetarian and walked a lot more because I lived in Los Angeles. But now, the south, and eating meat and rice and beans and stuff made me gain so much weight in such a short period of time. I just realized I was fat. So, with this outlook--I plan to cut out a lot of meat and completely cut out sugary sweets and starchy stuff.

Anything else you would like to share with us:
My main issue is not having any support. Locally, people are fat and love to eat barbeque and stuff. There aren't any really good health food stores. Walking is nearly unheard of, unless you're a senior citizen at the park. Other than that, everything is so far and spread out that you have to have a car. So, the environment is not really health-conducive, but I will not bare to be this fat forever. Need your support.

Children/Ages: Kids are scary! Hehe.

Occupation: Fashion Photographer / Graduate Student

Pets: I'm currently on a kitty cat hunt.

Hobbies/Interests: Photography, Gaming, Writing, Reading, and Traveling.

Height: 5' 3"

Eye/Hair Color: Hazel / I actually wear a wig due to a long term illness with OCD, so I get to be whatever I want - whenever I want.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: "Official" 12/08/2012

Starting Weight: 245

Present Weight: 245

Goal Weight: 120

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Depression and disbelief I can be a skinny girl

Following any specific plan: I decided I needed weekly accountability and to learn about food weekly in order to be successful. I have the plan and funds to follow the program until and after I meet my goal weight.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I decided to get a physician's help and learn about food rather than pluck things off the shelf. I have decided to become the adult me rather than linger on the lifestyle I had as a college student. Plus, I am in the fashion industry and there are a lot of issues concerning weight in the fashion world.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I type a lot because I love to help in anyway I can. I'll always be as informative as possible. I hope you all can bare through my long posts! Hah.
OK. So, after reviewing some of the 20-somethings file, you and I relate the most (to me). We weigh about the same and looking to meet about the same goal; journalists; think kids are scary; like traveling and reading and I could go on forever.

Though I am not seeking my physician's help really; I am wanting to become more adult about the whole healthy lifestyle thing.

I was a vegetarian since 16, but I moved to the south two years ago and gained about 45lbs. Its crazy for me, but I am ready to be healthy, fit and careless (about all those things that make you worry in regards to being fat).

I don't know how we're going to support each other, but I think you're awesome and understand where I wanna go with weight loss. So, I will be reading your posts (as you said you like to type).

thx

Starting Weight: ~200

Present Weight: ~200

Goal Weight: 175-185

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I can't think of one. I was actually in the best shape of my life before joining the military. Interestingly, I have fallen off the wagon after. I was at roughly 165 at a low point. I have put on more muscle so I would just like to lose some of that fat I have left and consolidate my gains!

Following any specific plan: Running, lifting again, nothing specific. Unless you count "buy what the girl at GNC suggests" as a plan!
