Height: 5' 4.5"

Default

Screen Name: chickadee32

Age/Age Range: 32

Family Life: My husband and two cats, and we're trying to conceive

Occupation: Genetics research

Hobbies and Interests: Reading, travel, cooking and baking

Favorite Music: Oh, I guess it tends to be somewhat alternative rock, plus a little bit of modern folk.

Favorite Color(s): I honestly don't know. Blue and green?

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Ha! I'm liking the treadmill right now.

What are your fitness/health goals? Lose weight. Get healthier. Get in shape. Be able to run, even though I presently hate running. Be thin enough to try yoga or pilates. Be healthy enough to conceive and have a pregnancy without complications.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? Realizing that the primary reason I've been unable to get pregnant is my weight.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Figuring out a healthy balance. Eating less food and giving up favorite foods isn't bothering me; the fact that I'm afraid to eat right now is.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? I think my calories are too low right now, and I need to up them a little. In terms of exercise, I need to improve my stamina. And I need to find ways to make healthy meals that my husband will actually enjoy (I'm fine with what I'm cooking, but I think my "diet meals" are beginning to bug him).

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than?: There's not anyone, really. I want to look better than I have the past 15 years.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? I want to wear something that shows my knees without being embarrassed!

Screen Name: Lantana

Age/Age Range: 59

Family Life: Divorced, live alone. One adult daughter in a state far away from here

Occupation: Librarian in a public library. I love my job!

Hobbies and Interests: Sewing and crafty things, reading and books, surfing the Internet and occasionally adding to its content (my little blog and a couple of forums I hang out in).

Favorite Music: I adore most kinds of music, rock, pop, tejano, jazz, Latina, polka, most “world” music. Truth is, almost anything with accordions in it.

Favorite Color(s): greens, browns, oranges

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: None. No favorite, I don’t care for any of them. But I can make myself walk sometimes.

What are your fitness/health goals? It’s really not good for my heart, feet or knees to carry around this bag of fighting shoats that is my butt/gut. My goal is to have a balanced body, not one that is proportionately bottom heavy.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? I saw myself sitting in a folding chair from behind. Ugh BEHIND being the scary part.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Laziness. I like veggies but I don’t want to prepare them. I like the idea of walking, but sitting down in front of the computer or TV or with a book is so much easier.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? I need to eat way more veggies, cut out the evil “whites” (white flour, sugar). Get at least the minimum amount of exercise to keep my bones and joints working well together.

(Evil motivation) Who do you want to look better than?: Anyone else my age. Tall order, I know. (Now if you had asked me 6 years ago it would have been my husband's mistress. Did I mention I'm divorced?)

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? Pants that fit rather than pants that fit *around* me when I’m sitting. Oh, and sundresses.

Screen Name: AllyG47

Age/Age Range: 27

Family Life: A brother & SIL who live in the next town over. I'm living with my parents until I can get my business up and running.

Occupation:
Freelance Writer/Internet Marketer

Hobbies and Interests: camping, music festivals (Bonnaroo!), concerts (huge Bob Dylan fan), NASCAR (Jeff Gordon fan), football (Go Vikes!)

Favorite Music: I like just about any kind of music. My favorite band in the past year has been The Avett Brothers. Bob Dylan is my hero and I have seen him in concert 6 times in the last 4 years. The only music I don't like is rap, electronic and country but I even like some bands of those generes. In rap, I like Eminem and Jay-Z (saw him in concert last year - amazing!). Can't think of any electronic music bands I like. In country, I like Loretta Lynn, Kris Kristopherson, Merle Haggard, Oak Ridge Boys, Garth Brooks, Diamond Rio and a few others. It's mostly new county that I don't like. I also don't really like pop music - can't stand Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and that annoying little boy that everyone talks about. I attend the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival every year where I get to see hundreds of bands in a few days. It's like being in heaven.

Favorite Color(s): Blue, Purple

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Jillian's 30 Day Shred, treadmill - I want to buy an elliptical but I don't know where I would put it.

What are your fitness/health goals?

I want to be able to run a marathon. I'm thinking of signing up for a 10K next October. That would give me 8 months to train for it.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit?

I booked a cruise for next November. It goes to Grand Cayman, Cozmel, Belize and Isla Roatan. My dream has been to try scuba diving. I would love to do it on this cruise but I don't know if I'll be in good enough shape. I would also be embarrassed to be in a swimsuit. I'm hoping to lose 40-50 lbs before the cruise.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health?

I always lose motivation when I eat healthy and workout yet the scale doesn't move. I get into the "why bother" mindset and end up falling off the wagon. I started this journey on January 15. Last week, I didn't lose any weight and this weekend, pigged out because I was so frustrated. I'm back on track now and have to remember that just because the scale doesn't move doesn't mean I'm not losing weight. Scales have been known to lie.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve?

1. I mean to exercise every day but I don't. I need to work on a morning routine that includes exercise. This would help make exercise a habit.

2. I can't figure out how many calories I need each day. I did 1200 calories/day the first two weeks and lost 10 lbs. The third week, I also ate 1200 calories/day and I gained weight (and it's not TOM). I don't know why I gained because I didn't eat anything salty before I weighed in. I feel like I'm eating too much food on 1200 calories and I struggle to get above 1,000 calories. I'm worried about eating more calories - if I'm struggling to eat 1,200 calories how am I going to get to 1,400.

3. I sit on my butt all day in a comfy recliner while I work on the laptop. I need to get up and walk around every hour.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than?

I want to join a dating site and I want to look better than all the women on the site so I could get some dates.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size?

A cute sundress. I found the perfect dress a few years ago at Kohl's. It was a black and white polka dot dress that went just below the knees and it had a halter top. I don't think Kohl's sells it anymore but I would love to be able to wear a dress like that.
