Occupation: Office Manager

Hobbies and Interests: Music, cooking, anything artistic

Favorite Music: Anything and Everything!

Favorite Color(s): Blue, Scarlet, Pink

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Walking, Yoga

What are your fitness/health goals? Gain control of my weight and fitness, get back to where I was prior to job changes, life changes, etc...

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? I dont feel like myself anymore. I miss me...and if I dont stop I will start looking like I ate the old me....ugh :/

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Being thoughtful of what I'm eating. I am an emotional eater. For me, food is like a drug... My Happy Pill Dealers are Ronald McDonald and his pal Wendy.


What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? I have to make time for exercise again. My job is great....I have the freedom to set my own hours in a manner of speaking....instead of getting up and going to the gym, I stay up late and sleep late. This has to change...back to the grind....early to bed, early to rise keeps you from having super-sized thighs!

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? : For me I dont really want to look better than anyone, I want to feel that strength I feel when I am controlling my life and have the appearance to prove it. But I guess in some ways I want to look better than that chubby girl that is always staring at me when I walk by a store window....she seems to be everywhere I go....

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? Everything! Next to eating, shopping is my favorite thing to do!!!!!! And thanks to online shopping I have made a new friend....Mr. UPS man

Screen Name: Kalilung

Age/Age Range: 26

Family Life: I have a husband, no kids, and no pets. I used to have a snake, but we're planning on moving to Hawaii (no snakes allowed), so i found her a good home with a biolgist friend of mine.

Occupation: Legal Assistant.

Hobbies and Interests: I like swimming, reading, hiking, and trolling the internet for funny articles.

Favorite Music: distorted alternative-style rock, and also folk music. (ie, Smashing Pumpkins or Jonathan Coulton)

Favorite Color(s): Green or blue, depending on the day, but my absolute favorite thing is rainbows.

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Walking, swimming, hiking, and rowing machines.

What are your fitness/health goals? I want to get to a BMI of exactly 23, lose the high blood pressure, and be able to run away from anything trying to hurt me.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? the first time i tried to lose weight, which was in august, 2002, we had gone to Ceder Point amusement park and i couldn't fit into at least half the rides. At that time i was 18 years old. I went on the Atkins diet and lost something around 100 lbs. May 2005, i decided i couldn't eat like this for the rest of my life and let it lapse. I moved to Albuquerque in July 05 and every time i tried to exercise or do a low-carb diet i would get migraines. It took until December 2008 to get to a point where i figured out i needed to drink more water and that a 24 y/o body is not the same as an 18 year old body. I started walking and counting calories, which worked out really well. School interfered, and i lapsed for two more years, but I never regained my highest weight. I graduated this december, and now i'm ready to put my fitness goals first in a sustainable sort of way.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Laziness, pure and simple. i like doing things with people, and if they're not around, i tend not to do anything. i'm also willing to let things lapse when i'm feeling emotionally weak.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? Hmm, i'd like to improve my stamina (and i know this will happen, it just takes time...) and i am really getting out of the mindset that my dinners should be at least 1/2 white starch.

(Evil motivation) Who do you want to look better than? Ooh, i like this question. I would like to look better than Queen Latifah and about the same as Drew Barrymore.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? Bikinis. You have no idea how i love them.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? I started to see myself in pictures for the first time as fat.
