OCCUPATION: relief teacher, currently waiting for school to let back in so I can earn money

BLOG or PERSONAL HOMEPAGE URL: 3fatchicks.com/redhotferrari

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: knowing when to say "When", sometimes I don't pay attention to how full I feel, I have a major sweet tooth, impulse buying and before all that and still struggling with it- emotional eating

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I've learned how to deal with my emotions this time around (by meditating and talking them out, not keeping them inside), not going to the market on an empty stomach, learning how to cook healthy and paying attention to what I'm eating and asking myself if I am satisfied when I'm finished eating.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm an American expat living in NZ with DH (he stole me away from America) and a big motivation to lose the weight is that I'm going home for Thanksgiving 2010 to see my rellies that I haven't seen since 2007/2008 (one of those years) at my sister's wedding. I've always been fat, so losing the weight will be a huge shock for my family when I go home.

I'm also a student trying to get into teacher training. I'm looking to teach high school English (yes, I am a glutton for punishment).

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: dieting didn't work! changing my lifestyle did :carrot:

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? i had a complete thyroidectomy in 2003 due to severe hyper-thyroidism and large goiter. before the surgery i could eat anything i wanted and still maintain a slim figure. after the surgery the doctor warned me that maintaining such a high calorie diet with little to no exercise would cause weight gain....i choose of course to ignore this warning and then after i gained 110 lbs (!!!) i blamed a lack of thyroid for my bad choices. after learning my cholesterol levels in march of this year i decided to make healthier food/exercise choices and losing weight just followed suit. after losing 58 lbs to date i have decided there really is no good excuse for treating myself so badly over the last 7 years. i feel better, i have less joint pain and my new clothes are way cuter than my old ones :) buying new clothes for the different stages of my weight loss has been far less expensive since i've learned the art of thrift stores.....not everything in a thrift store is perfect but if you are willing to allow yourself time to browse you can definitely find some treasures!

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I had something happen to me (read my blog for the deets) that really opened my eyes as to what I've done (or not done) to my body.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I thrive when I have ten things going on at once and am naturally social. Having a board like this to interact with other people trying to get healthy will really help me- I need the support!

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS:My biggest problem is my slow metabolism and health issues associated with my hypothyroidism. For me low-carbs is the only way to keep off the weight, but I never met a carb I didn't like. So when I fall off, I land hard.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? :I'm high on laughs and low on angst. I enjoy pointing out the funny and self-deprecating parts of my weight-loss journey to keep things in perspective when I'm not doing as well as I hoped.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Keeping up with the exercise! I don't know why, I always feel so great when I'm regularly exercising, I just find it so easy to stop.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I'm able to be honest about my weight for the first time ever. I step on the scale daily and I own it.

This is the first time I've been able to stick to committing to weight loss. My highest weight was over 300 pounds, but I started my weight loss journey in early June of this year at 294 pounds, and today I'm at 244. It feels great!

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Follow through. I'm the laziest person that I know. Eating right and exercising generally aren't activites for a lazy person. I fight constantly with my internal nature to do things right.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: There is no other option. My health is crap and my lifestyle right now is crap. Either I continue to wallow in the crap or do something to change it. There really is no other option.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm a sarcastic workaholic that finds any excuse possible to stay the way that I am rather than work towards making things better. Fighting against my true nature is really what this battle is about. But I know that once I get on a well defined path that I will feel generally happier about life.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Well, my biggest issue is getting started again. I did this two years ago and got down to 153... then gave up. I hit a major plateau and didn't really lose for over a month. I thought I'd try eating at maintenance for a week or two, that lead to eating more and more, and the weeks stretched to months, then a year. Which all ended in gaining 45 pounds back. So... my biggest issue is that I stopped last time and it's been very, very hard to start again.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I'm very embarrassed that I gained so much back and I'm really hoping that I can show people that it was just a slip and I can still do this.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? Like I said, this is my second real (not counting the countless times of "dieting" for one day then quitting) attempt at this. Also, it's been the plan from the start that once I reach my goal of being under 150 (in the healthy BMI range, iow) I get to take scuba lessons. My goal is to reach that soon enough so I can take them this summer. That means I have to lose ~50 pounds in 7 months tops. Do-able, but it'll be close.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Never actually tried to diet before this effort, just increase exercise. My husband has also vocalized a preference for me about twenty pounds heavier.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I gave myself concrete goals and deadlines instead of a nebulous declaration about how nice it would be to lose some weight.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? So I spazzed out at the thought of 29 being my last year as a 20-something. I made a 20s bucket list which primary goal was to have a stripper body by 30. I however discovered upon asking what a stripper body entailed only to discover they apparently come in all shapes and sizes. So my goal was accomplished before I even got started. However, given my initiative this year I am looking forward to embracing positive things with my birthday!

GOAL WEIGHT: 145

HEIGHT: 5ft

EYE COLOR: brown

HAIR COLOR: black

OCCUPATION: writer

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: The City of Angels

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: depression, busy sedentary grad school schedule, difficulty believing that it will actually improve my life or that I can actually succeed in losing the weight.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I'm tired of being fat and actually want to lose weight for me, not because someone else wants me to change my body. Husband cheated and we separated and now my self-esteem is at a serious low; I never want to feel so bad about myself ever again and since being fat makes me seem a little ridiculous, I've decided to lose the fat.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I really want to be successful this time, for me, and I'm a little afraid I will fail at it. I think that this is an emotional battle for me, just as much as it is a physical one. I need to find faith in my abilities.

My name is Laura. User name is Chubbygirl253 and I just started a blog on here Confessions of a chubby girl... so more to come on that!

I lost 68 lbs on weight watchers 5 years ago but I gained it back and so when I decided a few weeks ago to try again I was literally at the biggest I have ever been. (18 pounds higher than my 2007 starting weight)

So I started ww again on June 17th and so far I have lost 9 lbs! It would be more but I stumbled a bit on my birthday weekend. Just turned 35 last week. My wish is that by my next bday I won't be fat anymore. My starting weight was 330 but I'm on my way! (I'm doing the old version of ww because I don't care for the points plus version)

I have a wonderful boyfriend, Stephen who is so loving and supportive! And he loves my curves so I know he thinks I'm beautiful no matter what!:hug:

I have no kids of my own but I have a little nephew who is two and Stephen has a daughter who is three. I plan to have the little ones take me for walks since they have boundless energy!

My goal weight is 165 which I think would be a healthy size for someone 5'7 and it is also exactly half of my starting weight. Hard to admit I need to lose half my body weight. That's a whole person! But I'm gonna do it!

Good luck to everyone!

HOBBIES/INTERESTS:

PETS: adult dog, love her

TOP WEIGHT: 235 about five years ago. I was usually just above 200 though, for the past 10 years. I have gone down to 160 last year.

CURRENT WEIGHT: 180

GOAL WEIGHT: 140

HEIGHT: 5'4

EYE COLOR: hazel

HAIR COLOR: brown

OCCUPATION:

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION:

BLOG or PERSONAL HOMEPAGE URL: working on it

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Sticking to the lower calories. Even if I eat a healthy 1700 I feel too hungry the next day to continue. Also planned exercising sessions, I just hate to exercise. But I will go for a longer walk or bike ride so I do get some activity.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: Trying not to weigh myself too often. As women our weight fluctuates due to bloating different times of the month. Its best to weigh myself once or twice a month. But its hard to resist seeing progress.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm glad for being a member of this community. I'm trying to get up to 20 posts so I can have a fabulous ticker :) :D

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Eating at night, and eating when there's a lot of food around - holidays, occasions, etc. It throws me off track and then I stop working out because I'm out of sorts from the lack of clean eating.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I have fluctuated with my weight for approximately 4 years now, and I want to break that cycle. My weight gain is telling me that my eating and exercise habits need improvement. It's time to change - and reverse - this cycle!

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I can't always tell the difference between real hunger and the feeling of just wanting to eat or eating due to boredom/stress. I tend to obsess about food.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: My husband is about to deploy again and we will TTC #2 when he returns. I want to start that pregnancy after being in my healthy weight range for awhile and not gain 40lbs the 2nd time around. I let myself eat whatever I wanted last time, and I do not want to go down that path again because it is very hard to come back from. I feel like I have a bigger end goal this time.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: My own mind. I used my weight as a shield for the longest time. I've recently come to see how counterproductive that is, but still have a lifetime of thinking like that to overcome.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I see that being fat doesn't protect me from being vulnerable, it keeps me vulnerable. It keeps me from being empowered. I didn't realize that before. Realizing that has made a world of difference in how I look at food. It no longer holds the promise of safety. It may still taste delicious, but it no longer means what it used to mean.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I struggle with depression. I'm on medication and in therapy. I may talk a lot about therapy stuff. It may go deeper than some of you care to read.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: MOTIVATION, not sticking to my plan, emotional eating

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I was at 145 about 2 years ago, I would like to get back to that-ish weight. What is different this time? I don't know... I almost think it's going to be harder, last time I was part of a nation wide challenge. This time I'm on my own.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I used to be quite active here but I find it quite over whelming to keep up with all the posting sometimes. I have an anxiety disorder so I can get quite panicky about it but I'm working on making that better :) I'm also really paranoid about putting public info out there that someone I know might see it.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Impatience. When I start a diet I want to see the results right there and then.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I am taking my diet one day at a time. I have lots of mini goals. I am taking this diet as a lifestyle change. I am taking this diet as my only option in regards to eating--chocolate? never heard of it. ;) And I have a very supportive and hot husband who recently lost and continues to lose a lot of weight and I want to look equally hot when I'm with him. Haha! (It sucks to say this, but he knows it too, when he was bigger we ate a lot of crap because he bought it).

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I lived my whole life with a healthy 20 extra lbs. I was overweight, yes, but I was very much athletic. Then during my early twenties I started losing weight with a hectic college life, till I lost those 20 extra lbs and got down to 132lbs at age 24. I loved it! I was so skinny and so pretty, and felt so healthy! Of course at the time I was not nearly as aware as I should have of how thin, pretty and healthy I was. That's how it goes. Then I got married and bounced back to those 20 lbs, then got pregnant almost right away and with that first pregnancy I gained 20 more lbs putting me at 172 lbs. Through the years a sedentary life and poor eating made that weight go up to 187-193 lbs. And I got pregnant with baby #2; with her, luckily, I only gained 7 lbs. But again a rather sedentary life and mostly bad eating habits put me at 209. And here I am, dieting and on my way back to those coveted 132. :D

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I don't think I am patient enough, I want to see results FAST. I overwork my body for that reason and then it makes me too tired to get myself to exercise again.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I have cut out all snacks, meat and am currently on a very low carb diet. I aim to exercise every day from one hour to 2 hours.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? After having my second child 12 years ago, I was in a very unhappy relationship and was very depressed so I ate through it all until I got divorced. I looked at myself in the mirror and thought I don't want to be me, I don't want to look like this, at the time I weighed 118 kilos. I then made it my goal to lose as much weight as I can, it took me 9 months to lose 65 kilos, I was very determined to see results fast. I did this by eating healthy, little carbs and strictly no eating after 6. I exercised every single day for hours, I never went to the gym, I just walked and danced every day.
So I've come back to this point in my life where I need to do this again now. I had my baby 2 years ago and I put on so much weight, I haven't exercised in 3 years so here I am again, doing it all again!
