Height: 5'6"

Default

First name (if you want to tell): Lynn

Geographical location: northern Indiana

Age: 48

Marital Status: we consider ourselves married but the law doesn't recognize same-sex partnerships here in the Midwest yet. I've known I was bisexual since I was 15 but until 3 years ago didn't have a relationship with a woman.

Children/Ages: Childfree by choice

Occupation: owner of Blackwidow Stitchworks. I design things. Lots of cool things. I also teach a Crafts class for adults with developmental disabilities once a month.

Pets: Gina LeBelle a very special black cat born on the full moon rise on the Vernal Equinox in a pagan household 5 yrs ago this March; and Izzy formerly a foster who came to us having kittens and is a foot fetish-ist cat; Spike, a brindle boxer who is very smart and has an attitude, Med, a reverse brindle boxer, who is still a puppy although he will be 3 in March; Danni, a red & black MinPin who definitely rules this house.

Music: everything from Folk to Metal

Books: So many - I love books!

Active Hobbies: Designing home decor, handbags, costumes (SCA, Medieval, Native American), adaptive devices for people with disabilities, collecting cookbooks, gardening, creating rituals, cooking healthy, motorcycles, Living History, collecting fabrics & related things, gathering with friends & family, fiber arts, jewelry making, shopping, internet.

Interests: Blogging, folkcraft (ie: Pieceworks Magazine), vintage linens & costume, knitting, weaving, lacemaking, spinning, more fiber arts.

Religion: I call myself a Unitarian Universalist/green witch. I've been pagan since I was 19 and a UU since I was about 40.

Politics: Liberal Demo

Peircings/tattoos: ears double pieced and One large tat on upper right arm. I'd like more but I give platelets and I don't want to stop doing that just for wearable art. Maybe later in life...

Height: 5'6"

Eye/Hair Color: dark brown and dark brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: the current journey is starting today

Starting Weight: 237

Present Weight: ----

Goal Weight: 137

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: my own demons. I use food compulsively to try to fill a hole in my heart that I have hidden from even myself.

Following any specific plan: Whole Foods and fun activities.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have a supportive partner who is not interested in food. I have never been with anyone who thought of food as fuel before.

I love everything alternative but to look at me you may not see it. I am just too cheap to keep up a hair style and too busy to have a distintive style in my dress. I just grab and go most days - whatever is clean and pressed.

I'm sure I've forgotten something...

Height: 5ft 10in

Red face

Argh! Every time I get around to posting a reply, I have to log in again. LOL.

I'm Molly

Married 10 years this year to a German/Souix Indian and mother of 2 boys 5 yrs and just turned 6 mo.

28 years old

Highest weight is whatever I weigh now.

Lowest weight is 135 when I was around 18.

I love books. Hubby can't live without TV... I try to ignore it as much as I can. I love playing on my Wii, Playstation 3 and XBOX 360. I am a gaming/comic geek.

Favorite authors are Jane Austen, Dean R Koontz, old Stephen King, Laurell K Hamilton, L.J. Smith, Stephenie Meyer and Charlane Harris

Favorite music is punk, psychobilly, rockabilly, swing, alternative, classical, hip-hop, pop...

Fav artists are Panic! at the disco, Dropkick Murphys, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Wagner, Lady Gaga, Nickelback, Shinedown, Evanescence...

I am a believer, but I don't know if I believe there is only one way. How could most religions be so close yet hate so much?

I am all for rights. Everyone's rights. I feel that God made us equal and we are messing up trying to change his plan.

I am a Semi-Liberal. But I love my guns, so I have to be at least a little Conservative, right?

I have put off getting my tattoos and Piercings because we were trying for another baby. I will probably get a Labret piercing and a tat of my wonderful boys names this coming year. If nothing comes up before then.

My reason for losing weight is mostly because I hate myself right now. I can't get in the mood with my hubby, because I wouldn't want to touch me. He swears he doesn't see me like I do, but he says things. Maybe he is just trying to give me the motivation to do this on my own, but sometimes what he says hurts. I don't want to hear my son tell me I am fat anymore. I don't want to think that my hubby's family is laughing at him behind his back because of me. I was reasonably attractive when we met...

Oh, and I have low self-esteem. If you hadn't guessed. LMAO

How is this time different from other attempts? I have to lose a lot of weight before my new baby can begin calling me fat, too.

S/C/G: 170/170/???

Height: 5'2

Default

Name: Tory/Amazonette is a play on the jokes friends make about me being tiny but muscular as all ****.

Birthday: December 9th(Sagittarius whuuuut)

Marital Status: Long-term relationship very likely to result in joyous nerd-marriage

Top Weight: 180lbs(at about 15)

Current Weight: 170lbs

Goal Weight: I don't even know.Weight has never been what I'm worried about,I get fed up with the wiggly bits.

Eye Color: Weird green(yellow ring around pupil,thick black ring around iris)

Hair Color:Uh...Sort of fading into red for some reason.Tried to dye back to my natural after a very catastrophic cleaching situation and uh...yeah... So I guess really dark brown/black/red.

Hobbies/Interests:Vidya' games,making costumes and props(currently planning sweet Rescue armor{Pepper Potts' iron man suit}),collecting glorious shoes,urban art*cough cough*,admiring and trying create lolita fashion,making nifty steampunk things,cooking(I make some wicked udon),roller derby(lovelovelove)

Pets:3 cats in the house,the runty loud one is mine;Archimedes/AKA Meathead.

Geographic Location: Kentucky

Favorite Color: Red

Favorite Foods:Noodles-all types,in all sorts of sauces just,yummy.Cream puffs(my ultimate achilles),baba ganoush,Muffalettas,risotto,irish-style corned beef,eel(in slices on a heap of rice,in rolls with yummy avocado...)

Favorite Exercise: Skating.Specifically,skating the way I did in derby:Fast and vicious.Low to the ground,crazy quick cross-overs,and imagining the glee of knocking people over.I miss my derby so,so,so bad.
Aside from that,kick-boxing.
Basically fast,cardio heavy,very active stuff.

Favorite Book(s): Pretty much everything by Poppy Z.Brite-Exquisite Corpse for as vile,and twisted as it is remains my favourite;No other book has ever had me fighting between throwing it down out of repulsion and just HAVING to keep reading.Parts of it still,after about 5 times re-reading it,make me squirm.
Terry Pratchett is fabulous,Hogfather is and always will be my favourite.His Death is so sweet and somewhat dopey in a cute way,and Susan is just awesome.
The Cirque Du Freak series is a refreshing vampire story.(The movie was insanely hilarious)
Hitchhiker's Guide To the Galaxy,and it's ensuing line.Just...Don't Panic.

Favorite Movie(s):Amelie,House of 1000 Corpses(I don't know why),Secret Window,Spaceballs,I'm Gonna Git You Sucka,The Princess and The Frog(disney is disney again!And New Orleans!!!),Moulin Rouge

Favorite Band/Music: Ha.Just about everything.Quick iPod scroll for reference:Gorillaz,Voltaire,Etta James,Johnny Cash,Madness,The Birthday Massacre,The Cure,Violent Femmes.

Problem in Weight Loss: I can't seem to actually lose WEIGHT.Fat,that will go-but a heap of muscle shows up instead.I do NOT understand this.
I hate the assumptions and rude comments I get if I mention I'm 5'2 and 170lbs-I'm huge,I'm unhealthy,lol ur fat[A DOCTOR once called me fat.I nearly punched her.].
It really sucks-and I've resolved just to go off of the LOOK of my body since I have no clue how to lose muscle.(And to be honest,being able to lift 300lb guys is pretty sweet.)

What is Different This Time That Will Make You Successful: I'm sick of those assumptions,and as a costume nerd and lolita admirer-I want to try and I guess 'streamline' my body to fit into those itty bitty lolita things and look good in my costumes.

Weight Loss Plan:Cutting back on the sugar intake and getting back on track with my no-soda rule.I'll also get into a decent exercise regimen-until I can afford to get out to and pay to get into an actual roller rink,not busting myself up on concrete with indoor wheels might be good.
Thinking about Insanity,and still hunting for a real muay thai class.

Religion: Polytheist Pagan.Always wear a silver Ankh,have a statue of Bastet in my room,along with some Buddahs,put a lot of stock in The Satanic Witch(Anton was brilliant),practice houdou(very successfully I might add.None of my gris-gris have ever failed.),and do the Happy Naked Pagan Dance.

Politics:Ugh.I guess Libertarian if I have to pick a label.

Piercings:Snake bites.Sort of spontaneous.Always fond of how they looked,debated getting them for ages,then one just said 'F*** it"-went to a local shop,asked for a price and went for it.I love them.
(Oh,and they're now a whole bunch of cute.On our 4 month anniversary,my boyfriend and I 'exchanged rings'.He put one of my rings in his single piercing and gave me a pair he had.I thought it was kind of adorable.)

Tattoos:None yet.Planning full-body ball-joints,like a doll.And if I get over worrying it could bring on bad things-I might get 'AMETH' between my shoulder blades.The golem thing seems somewhat appropriate given the living-doll appearance.

I think this is the forum I belong on

so about me:

i have an army of children. they're my world. i married my high school gutter punk sweetheart but divorced him because he grew up and changed. me, i stayed the same. i still dye my hair pink. i still like holey jeans and converse and band tshirts. i like tattoos and piercings and work from home so i don't have to hide or remove them. Yes I have a lot of tattoos (almost half sleeves, a chest piece and random others spread out over my body). No they can't be counted. Yes they hurt. i'm not a conventional parent but my kids are well cared for. probably better than the children of overworked yuppies. my kids are artistic free spirits with unique personalities and i will not stifle that. i don't go out much anymore but when i do i like shows. i still go in the pit but end up regretting it later. i'm not as young as i used to be. i'm random and silly. i like horror movies and classic stuff. pin up style and muscle cars rule. i had a 73 nova but that moron that lives with me traded it for a 46 dodge truck. i'd rather listen to music than watch tv. I have a fiance (he gave me a 3 stone black diamond ring. yes they make black diamonds I was shocked to discover this.) he's 9 years younger than me so technically I'm not a cougar. His hands are always dirty from working on cars and he often smells, but I lack a sense of smell so it works. He is the only one that can make me laugh when I'm furious. Sometimes he knows me better than I know myself.

My weight has fluctuated over the years

1997 after baby number 1 135
1999 after baby number 2 169
2000 ww and gym 145
2002 baby number 3 180
2009 baby number 4 201
2010 getting my butt in gear 204

Hey everyone,

My name is Jamie, 29 and new to this site and dieting. Marriage has given me 5 wonderful years and 60 extra pounds.

If anyone if on vampirefreaks, I am on there as well (devilsplaymate).

PETS: three dogs, and five cats!

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Missouri

FAVORITE COLOR: purple

FAVORITE FOODS: pizza and chinese food (not together lol)

FAVORITE EXERCISE: swimming

FAVORITE BOOK(S): The Count of Monte Cristo, anything by tamora pierce

FAVORITE MOVIE(S): Shawshank Redemption, Yesman, Night at the Roxbury, The Holiday, I could go on forever lol.

FAVORITE TV SHOW(S): Psych, Glee, House, anything with gordon ramsay in it

FAVORITE BAND/MUSIC: I'm not into music as much as I used to be, well at least not particular bands. I still like Seether and Chevelle (their first two albums anyway), I pretty much like all types of music though. I care more about if it sucks than who sings/performs it.

PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Emotional eating. I eat when I'm sad, happy, annoyed, when the sun's out, when it's raining, and when it's dark out. >.>

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: Motivation, I'm more motivated to stick to it and finish it. I'm tired of being unhealthy. Nothing tastes good enough to keep killing myself.

WEIGHT LOSS PLAN: Eat ONLY when hungry. That's my huge goal, if I'm not really hungry I shouldn't eat. Not my stomach is empty I need to fill it so I'm going to eat! But my stomach is growling I'm really actually hungry I should eat. If that makes any sense ;D

RELIGION: None really, starting to get interested in pagan religions again but for the time being I'm athiest (probably always will be lol)

PIERCINGS: just a ton in my ears.

TATTOOS: None, I doubt I'll ever get one. I can't see myself liking a tattoo I get now when I'm 10 or 20 years older.
