First name: Sarah

Geographical location: Oregon!

Age: 22

Marital Status: In a relationship

Children/Ages: none

Occupation: Front desk rep.

Pets: None here, but 2 dogs at my moms

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, writing, traveling. I'm still trying to figure out what other hobbies I have. I'm interested in music, and I love to help people.

Height: 5"7

Eye/Hair Color: Brown hair, hazel eyes.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: THIS time, lets call it September 7th.

Starting Weight: 241.1

Present Weight: 239.4

Goal Weight: 140, but we'll see as the weight starts coming off.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I have always self diagnosed myself with what I like to call partnered eating. I am WAY more likely to overeat or eat a lot if I am with someone else. For example, when my boyfriend is at work on the weekend I'm never hungry (while he's gone). But it's like the second he gets home my brain starts in with "okay, what are we going to eat". I gained a majority of my weight while my best friend was pregnant. We lived together and when she ate, I ate. We were partners in "crime" if you will. I guess that is one of my biggest hurdles, among many.

Following any specific plan: I (try to) eat clean, and count calories on myfitnesspal

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I am READY. I'm for real this time. I have been trying to lose weight for the last 6 years, and have struggled immensely with my efforts to do so. I finally had an enough is enough moment while playing with my niece one day and I just decided it was stupid of me not to get into shape.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I hope to find motivation and support from these forms. I struggle daily as I try to not make food a priority. I am trying to live by "eat to live". If anyone would like to add me on myfitnesspal please do so, my username is sarahmichelexo over there as well.

Look forward to meeting you all!!

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Not listening to my boyfriend, who is very sweet and tells me daily he loves me for who I am, and that I'm beautiful as I am - but I want to lose weight for ME, so I can also love myself and feel beautiful. Also, he's horrible for bringing sugary things into the house - I need more will-power!

Following any specific plan: Get support here, as that is what I believe I've been missing in the past.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: The support I feel I may now receive.

Anything else you would like to share with us: That I think you are all amazing for making the decision to change your life (because although it's just a bit of extra weight, it makes a difference in ways most of us don't understand).

Great thread! I really enjoyed reading everyone else's profiles =)

First name: Kelly

Geographical location: South Africa

Age: 25

Marital Status: Unmarried

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: IT

Pets: Two goldfish, Jon and Stephen (named after Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert), forced upon me by my twin brother as a recent house-warming present. It's apparently called a Goldfish Starter Kit. I have no idea what the Advanced Kit would be. Probably a full on effing aquarium.

Hobbies/Interests: Astronomy, astrophysics, current affairs, politics, education, academia, religion from a non-religious perspective, medical quackery etc.

Height: 5ft 6"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue eyes, long blonde hair.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Hard to determine. I've been wanting to lose weight for about a decade now. Let's make the date today I suppose. It's as good as any other date. I'm the heaviest I've ever been and the saddest I've ever been as a result.

Starting Weight: 78 kgs (approximately 171 pounds)

Present Weight: Same

Goal Weight: 55 kgs (approximately 120 pounds). I'm not tied to this goal. If I get to around 60kgs but look and feel great then I'll stop. I'm not married to the number.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Consistency & patience

Following any specific plan: No junk food, no fizzy drinks, small portions, healthy food, running, skipping, crossfit.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: More exercise. More support. More miserable and therefore motivated to change.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Nope, that's it =) Thanks for reading.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss:
Getting off my butt and finding time to do it.

Following any specific plan:
Nothing yet, but looking into MRC.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:
I have a baby now; so getting in exercise time is my biggest hold back.

Anything else you would like to share with us:
[b]At 17 years old I weighed 245 pounds and became extremely disgusted with the way I looked. I spent 2 1/2 months doing killer exerciser and binge eating when I actually at After 73 days- I weighed 172. I then at 18 began training to become an Air Force SERE and spent 8 weeks in rigorous PRE-BASIC Training. At the end I weighed 160 and I had kept it off for 3 years when I got pregnant with my daughter. I was doing very well keeping a healthy weight during my pregnancy when my mom was diagnosed with "out of control polyp" and had to have surgery to remove it then a colostomy. I was in my second trimester and "stress ate" for the next month. Five weeks after her surgery we got the results back, and she was diagnosed with stage 4-B Colon Cancer at the age of 42. With more stress eating and no exercising, by the time I delivered my baby, I weighed 263 pounds. For the record; that's about 100 pounds that I gained from the time I met my husband to the birth of our daughter. I am MORE than ready to lose this weight I don't need to "weigh" what I did because I know pregnancy can change your body- I just want to feel good about myself again. It's been too-long since I've been proud of the way I look. :]

P.S; My mom has been through Chemo for the last year and 3 weeks ago she had a second PT scan that showed NO SIGNS OF ACTIVE CANCER CELLS. Praise God!
