FAVORITE BOOK(S): Tam Lin by Diana Wynne Jones, That Hideous Strength by C.S. Lewis, The Lady's Not For Burning by Christopher Fry (a play, but I've never actually seen it performed), anything by Bill Bryson, The Adventures/Memoirs/Return of Sherlock Holmes, A Room with a View by E.M. Forster, Sense & Sensibility by Jane Austen, The Divine Invasion by Philip Dick, and now I'll stop before this list gets unmanageable ...
FAVORITE MOVIE(S): ****ing Amal (a Swedish movie that was called "Show Me Love" when it was released in the States), Love My Life, My Sassy Girl (the Korean version not the American remake), A Letter to Three Wives, Widow's Peak, Hot Fuzz, Wives & Daughters, Cranford, Sense & Sensibility (the version that stars Hattie Morahan and Charity Wakefield)
FAVORITE TV SHOW(S): Star Trek (the Original Series and the Next Generation), Dollhouse, Firefly, Parks and Recreation, Gilmore Girls
FAVORITE BAND/MUSIC: It's weird; I love music and pretty much listen to it all day long, but I'm not too picky about genres. When left to my own devices, I guess I do tend to steer towards folksy kind of stuff, country, pop, and songs from musicals. Currently, I am having trouble getting the original cast recording of Wicked, a Dengue Fever song, and Alison Krauss out of my head. I really like the Finnish band Värttinä, Flogging Molly, Blue October (yeah, I know ...), Ross Daly, and Loreena McKennitt. I've also been strangely drawn to the accordion lately.
PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: the desire to binge eat
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I completely changed my entire lifestyle. It seems to be working so far.
WEIGHT LOSS PLAN: 1200ish calories a day and move, move, move. I walk to work and home every day, which is about 3 miles roundtrip, and then try to walk/jog/bike/swim a few times a week, too.
RELIGION: I'm not religious.
POLITICS: I'll just say liberal, even though that's kind of broad and non-explanatory.
PIERCINGS: three in my ear lobes (used to be four, but one fell out while I was on a desert camping trip and I never bothered to repierce it) and an industrial. I used to have my belly button done, but it ripped out. If I'm ever happy with how my stomach looks, I may do it again. Then again, maybe not. Those stretch marks aren't going anywhere. Also, I want to get a nose ring.
TATTOOS: None, but there are plans in the works for a half sleeve.
On the surface I live what appears to be a somewhat traditional life, but underneath I am subversive and appreciate all others who reject the status quo. Right now it seems I am surrounded by people who are only into:
FAVORITE EXERCISE: Bellydance and anything in the water
FAVORITE BOOK(S): Miles Vorkosigan series by Lois McMaster Bujold, Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson, Harry Potter, Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan/Brandon Sanderson, Jane Austen, Tamora Pierce, Diana Wynne Jones, Terry Pratchett
FAVORITE MOVIE(S): Real Genius, Harry Potter, Serenity, most superhero movies, old musicals
FAVORITE TV SHOW(S): Doctor Who, Firefly, Gilmore Girls, Eureka, Warehouse 13, Sherlock, Chuck, Glee
FAVORITE BAND/MUSIC: I wander all over the place. I like most things except country and modern pop. Listening to a lot of modern gothic and steampunk right now like Scarring Party, Gogol Bordello, Abney Park, Bat for Lashes, Dr. Steel, and Jill Tracy. I love Jonathan Coulton and Weird Al. Lately I've developed a love for Adele.
PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I have no thyroid, and meds don't always cut it.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I joined Lifetime Fitness and am really enjoying it.
WEIGHT LOSS PLAN: Something sustainable. I gravitate toward healthier food, but the rest of the fam does not, and we always have crap in the house..
PIERCINGS: Just my ears and I hate those. I'd have none if I could. I think I'm allergic to metals, but I dunno why I have such an aversion to wearing them. They don't bother me on other people.
TATTOOS: None, I'm so ADD that by the next week I'd want something different. I think henna is more my style...

PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Quit smoking nicotine, increased smoking green, not eating breakfast, probably too much meat and pasta

WEIGHT LOSS PLAN: Starting to eat breakfast (I've never really done that), drinking less and smarter, eating smarter munchie food too. I know kids that smoke and eat nuts and fruit instead of garbage

NAME: Christine (yeah, I know)
BIRTHDAY: Sometime in 1994.
RELATIONSHIP: Single, prude, forever.
TOP WEIGHT: 195
CURRENT WEIGHT: 195
GOAL WEIGHT: 145
EYE COLOR: Hazel?
HAIR COLOR: Auburn
HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Erm...my interest is in strange happenings, as they are the only things in this world that inspire me so! Plus, I like writing, reading, etc, etc!
GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Not ever worth sayin...
FAVORITE COLOR: I can't just say one color; I like most of them and they all have a great role in weaving our perspective, feelings towards the world (except pink...erm), and love the intense but deep shades of orange, red, brown, blue, green...autumnal colors, actually.
FAVORITE FOODS: *Shrugs* Not much, but I love my Icees...
FAVORITE EXERCISE: Honestly, don't have one. Exercise is okay, but I haven't really explored it enough. I'd like a adventure though.
FAVORITE BOOK(S): Plenty...not going to list them, though.
FAVORITE MOVIE(S): Not much...I like Mr. Mogorium's Wonder Emporium (I know I spelled that wrong), and Big Fish (my theme movie, my friend calls it.)
FAVORITE TV SHOW(S): Don't like TV, sorry...it's just kinda boring.
FAVORITE BAND/MUSIC: Progressive/Power Metal! Music is something that I want to find something that I can be passionate about, but it's just so hard finding something appealing. However, a few months ago I found a band named Ayreon...and I've never liked so much songs from one band in my life. Before that, my main band was Sonata Arctica (when I was 13-16 years old.)
PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Not caring enough, oddly, and being too smug with my good looks. (I'm confident of all that I am, but it's been holding me back from a looming weakness of my physical self.)
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I'm here, and I've never really had any support on this matter before from people. I'm not even sure if I'll be successful, but it'll be interesting if I can break out of my usual tendency of solitude in need for a mutual goal.
WEIGHT LOSS PLAN: Honest, and modest. I don't want to be skinny, but I want to be strong. If I start putting on more weight, it'll be a sign of weakness for me.
PIERCINGS: *Tumbleweed cue* Anyhow, I don't like piercings.
TATTOOS: Nothing, but I do want a couple when I turn 18.
PHILOSOPHY/WAY OF THINKING: Romanticism, and then my own set of truths.
RELIGION: None, actually...haven't found any that really fascinate me. My brother called me a buddhist though, for whatever reason.
PRO-TURNED-CON: It has to be my open mindedness. I just don't put people into boxes, and it gets difficult around the supposedly 'insane', for I can't just write off what they're saying like other people can/do. Another one is my incredible intuition. I blame it going for weeks without working on any schoolwork at home, never studying, and my 4.0 GPA on it. A university will kill me I know.
RIDICULOUS, CONSTANT ACTS OF REBELLION (against the waves of 'what is', etc): Not liking people much ( mostly children), being mildly masochistic, fond of being a antagonist at times, wanting desperately for humanity to actually succeed and go into the future and even to come into official contact with aliens!, wanting freedom not happiness, hating/not believing in the 'it's a man's world' "truth", I dislike simple things but I do appreciate them at times/perfer complexity, liking myself+my flaws with fondness...okay, I'm stopping. The list goes on, and I perfer not to go into the more deeper stuff with strangers.
WHY ARE YOU ALTERNATIVE?: Don't need to explain it; I consider myself thus because I don't remotely fit in with anything else and that satisfies the definition, I assume.
My name is Rikki and I'm just tired of trying to fit into what is "socially acceptable" in terms of how I look or act or do. Having been raised to
" do as I am told " robbed me of making decisions for myself and learning about myself and life. Never really felt like I fit in whether its with my family nor with friends. Still, I love to laugh and find beauty in everything I see.

PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I lose motivation quickly because, as stupid as it may sound, I don't really believe it's possible for me to lose more than a few pounds.
