First name: Yvie

Geographical location: Canada

Age: 49

Marital Status: married

Occupation: writer/editor

Hobbies/Interests: books, films, music, art

Height: 5'6

Eye/Hair Color: brown/brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Feb 7, 2011

Starting Weight: 168

Goal Weight: 135

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: staying focused; resisting spur-of-the-moment temptations to go off the rails "just for now" in hopes that I can compensate for it afterwards

Following any specific plan: not really; I'm trying for a balanced 1200 calories per day, and a serious workout four to five times a week.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I've come here looking to share the experience with others in hopes it'll help keep me focused on the task at hand!
