Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: the last time ever: 12/09/09

Starting Weight: 209 lbs / 95 kgs

Goal Weight: 60 kgs / 132 lbs

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: My health problems have limited my ability to exercise, I am recovering from a long period of illness and that has created financial pressures. I overeat when I'm stressed.

Following any specific plan: generally low carb but mainly working at making sustainable changes to my eating that I can live with.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:

I am at the highest weight I've ever been. This time it's about my health and ability to age well as I am really aware that if I don't lose the weight I am facing an old age of sickness and limitation.

Anything else you would like to share with us:

I am really glad to be here. I am hoping to meet supportive people here as I have no close relatives and my two best friends have both moved away to other states, so loneliness is a problem that I need to overcome.
