Default Good to be back....

Well, it's been a million years. ****, I don't even remember what my old 3FC name was, so I guess I AM reinventing myself!

MARITAL STATUS: Blissfully divorced

AGE: 40

TOP WEIGHT: 259 (been 219'ish for 2 years now)

GOAL WEIGHT: 150'ish (whatever looks good AND I can maintain)

EYE COLOR: Green

HAIR COLOR: Red

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: reading, music, movies, scrapbooking, ghost hunting, world religions, history

PETS: 3 cats (2 are polydactyl and I've got to watch them! Damn opposable thumbs!)

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Middle of nowhere Oregon

FAVORITE COLOR: Earth tones (can't pick just one)

FAVORITE FOODS: Yes (that's how I got here!)

FAVORITE EXERCISE: Walking, eliptical

FAVORITE BOOK(S): Southern Vampire Mysteries, Twilight series, Circle of Five series, Harry Potter series, Pride & Prejudice, etc. Too many to list.

FAVORITE MOVIE(S): Pride & Prejudice, Young Victoria, Elizabeth (see a pattern here? Love me a period movie!)

FAVORITE TV SHOW(S): Ghost Hunters, Glee, The Family Guy (snort!) and can't miss 49er football

FAVORITE BAND/MUSIC: Depends on my mood - Stone Temple Pilots, Paramore, really, almost everything from Bach to Rob Zombie.

PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I have "just one last time" syndrome - the "last time" never happens and the unhealthy eating goes on, and on, and on....

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: September started a HUGE inner discovery period in my life. I know how to lose weight, so I've been realizing/learning why I keep regaining it.

WEIGHT LOSS PLAN: Rejoining WW, but I'm an ex-leader so it's tough to listen to what I pitched for so long. I know the plan works, if I can just get past the saccharine cheerleading...

PIERCINGS: Ears and traguses (tragi?)

TATTOOS: Sun/moon on upper back, Capricorn constellation on shoulder


Looking forward to getting to (re)know everyone!

PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Too many alcohol calories, too much fast food, binge eating on junk food.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL:
An actual interest in doing it for myself this time, as opposed to working out because someone told me I was fat/hinted that I was unfit. Also dislocated my knee for the third time and am hoping that if I can manage to loose some weight I can get back in the mosh pit sooner!

WEIGHT LOSS PLAN: 1500 calories/day (and eat back calories burned exercising), meticulous food-journalling, eat better.

Just thought I'd post a bio before jumping in! I'll probably browse another day or two...

NAME: Dagny, for all intents and purposes. Using an "alias" for myself and my family members

BIRTHDAY: December 3

MARITAL STATUS: Married, 8 years in August

TOP WEIGHT: 200+ pregnant (I stopped looking at the scale after I hit 200) 178 non-pregnant

CURRENT WEIGHT: 142 (ish)

GOAL WEIGHT: 115? I'll probably stop long before then, but if I don't have a goal to aim for I get waaaayy too comfy where I am

EYE COLOR: Brown

HAIR COLOR: Also brown. I miss the days when I could play around with it

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Reading, photography,camping, running

PETS: Just one, a beagle

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: MS

FAVORITE COLOR: Blue, I suppose

FAVORITE FOODS: I'm a huge fan of fruit smoothies. And tomato soup. But not together.

FAVORITE EXERCISE: Running and yoga, which I should really start doing again. I love strength training (most of the time)

FAVORITE BOOK(S): Way too many. Lately I have been switching back and forth between Gimme Something Better and The Outlaw Bible of American Poetry because I don't seem to have the attention span for a novel right now.

FAVORITE MOVIE(S): Where to begin! Right now I would say Boondock Saints. But I watched it recently. Next week it will be something else.

FAVORITE TV SHOW(S): I guess The Shield and House. A "new" favorite might be Dead Like Me. I need to watch a few more episodes to decide

FAVORITE BAND/MUSIC: It varies. The ones in the regular rotation are Social Distortion, The Living End, and Flogging Molly. Currently it's non-stop Joan Jett to keep my daughter happy!

PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Emotional eating. That and making time for everything BUT me

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: Knowing that I've done it before, so I can do it again! That, and just some internal dialogues lately, re-evaluating my priorities and realizing that for my sake and my kids sake, I need to take better care of myself

WEIGHT LOSS PLAN: Calorie counting, and trying to find a routine I can stick to

RELIGION: I honestly have no idea. Our kids are in Catholic schools, and we occasionally attend Mass (have to put in an appearance now and then to keep their scholarships). It's been a long time since I knew what I believed

POLITICS: I know it when I see it!

PIERCINGS: Just the ears.

TATTOOS: Three right now. My back, shoulder, and wrist. Planning on at least two more, but I need a good reason to justify the cost!

Height: 5'6"

NAME: Lela

BIRTHDAY: Feb. 3, 1972-No math needed- I'm 38

MARITAL STATUS: Separated, soon to be divorced

TOP WEIGHT: 235

CURRENT WEIGHT: 221

GOAL WEIGHT: 170lbs

EYE COLOR: Medium Brown

HAIR COLOR: Depends, naturally brown- Currently Ruby Fusion.

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Movies, Reading, Drawing, Tattooing, Going to the Mountains, specifically Glacier Park, spending time with my girls 3 and 4.

PETS: recently discovered that my youngest is allergic to dogs, so I had to say goodbye to my little man, Sarge. He was an adorable 5lb black and white chihuahua. He's with my ex, so I know he's fine, I just miss him. Crazy, I've had pets my whole life. It's weird not to.

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Montana

FAVORITE COLOR: Hot Pink with sparkles

FAVORITE FOODS: Chocolate, icecream, and pretty much everything with sugar in it.

FAVORITE EXERCISE:I've heard of it, yes.

FAVORITE BOOK(S): The Shining, Tommknockers, and The Running Man by Stephen King, Swan Song by Robert R. McCammon sp?,Various Smut novels-Teresa Medeiros did some really cute ones, total brain candy.

FAVORITE MOVIE(S): There are many I love, so I'll just list the ones I tend to watch over and over again: Feel good and make you think movies: GoodWill Hunting, Stand and Deliver, Dangerous Minds, Rudy, Men of Honor, The Shawshank Redemption. Pure enjoyment: The Princess Bride, Highlander-the original, Lady Hawk, You've Got Mail, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, They are doing a great job with the Harry Potter series, can't wait to see how they'll handle the end, Sorry ladies, Twilight just makes me feel old. It does transport me back to my teens tho and I have to say that if I were a teen, I would swoon. Who wouldn't? Just make the heroine a little more volumptuous and the guys hopelessly drawn to her soft feminine curves while the mortals remain clueless.
FAVORITE TV SHOW(S): Next Food Network Star, Next Design Star, House

FAVORITE BAND/MUSIC:Kinda Mixed here, but I'd have to go with the Eagles for mellow moods, and Rob Zombie for more amped up moods.

PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Food is my drug. I've looked at stories of drug addiction and I don't see a difference except that my addiciton is legal and not only readily accessible at all times, but is being hawked in all forms of media and is for sale on every street corner.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I found this website and forum. I've joined the Halloween Challenge, and it's already made me make better choices because I want to be able to post progress. I'm down 4 lbs so far and the goal pics and success stories on 3FC make me feel like I can do this. Also, I want to be fit by 40.

WEIGHT LOSS PLAN: LA Weightloss really kind of put it into perspective for me. It's simple to follow and if you eat everything it keeps you full. I know it sounds weird, but it's true. I also never really got that 8 glasses of water a day was actually 8 8oz glasses, one 20 oz and you've already gotten two down. Duh, right? The program was a total money machine, and the centers have mostly all closed down, but I still have my info and LA to your door can deliver the bars. I am just using protien bars for now.

RELIGION: I believe I'm not alone. I believe in a higher power, and I call it God for lack of a better term. I do not think the Bible should be taken literally and I know that people have perverted every religion for their own means and don't think that Christianity is an exception. I just know what feels like truth to me, and most religions share a common thread of treating others well and trying to be the best person you can be. I think you get back what you put out, so yes I do believe Karma is real too.

POLITICS: Dissappointed mostly. I can't believe how self-serving all politicians seem to be. Of the two, I'd say Democrat...but there are good and bad people on both sides. I hate that so many people let others do their thinking for them. I can't believe the things people have accepted as truth. It's scary to hear everyone repeating the same phrases that they've heard on TV. Brainwashing anyone?

PIERCINGS: Nose, three in each ear, and navel.

TATTOOS: Lots and lots, but no real coverage yet (sleeves, backpiece- No) I like floral and nature and so mine are nature inspired.
