Screen Name: Kittenmancer

Age/Age Range: 30

Family Life: In a lifetime relationship.

Occupation: QA Manager.

Hobbies and Interests: Computer games, reading, steampunk, working out.

Favorite Music: Very broad spectrum, from medieval music to drum'n'bass, going through all sorts of genres depending on the mood.

Favorite Color(s): Blue.

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Weight lifting, kettlebells, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, capoeira.

What are your fitness/health goals: Body fat at or under 15%, muscle strength, better endurance.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? There was no such thing, I've been unhappy with the way I look and feel for a very long time. Moving to a different country gave me the opportunity to get better information about fitness and fat loss and also made me discover that exercise can be a lot of fun (I used to hate exercise of any kind except for swimming).

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Wavering willpower when it comes to sticking to healthy eating and a workout program.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? Control cravings (especially for sweets), find a good balance for how much I exercise, stick to a healthy lifestyle for longer than a few months.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? : Myself in 2009, when I was working out like crazy. Other than that, there are two girls that I would like to look like - a kettlebell instructor and a girl I trained with a few times at BJJ. Beautiful musculature.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size: Bikinis.

Screen Name: Calendula

Age/Age Range: 30s

Family Life: Married

Occupation: Consultant / traveling sales lady

Hobbies and Interests: Eating! Shopping.

Favorite Music: indie, pop, hip hop

Favorite Color(s): green

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: I'd like to believe I will like running when I am okay at it. Right now I can't even do it for 10 minutes straight.

What are your fitness/health goals? Short term - run a 10 minute mile. Long term - run 10k in under 30 minutes. Also, get stronger.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? I went over 130 lbs which I'd told myself I would never do unless pregnant. I have a very small frame. I visited family and realized I am a lot bigger than they are, even the 40 year old cousins who have had 4 kids. Also my friend losing 100 lbs in 6 mos makes me feel like I can do it!

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? I love eating snacks. Whole cakes in one sitting, 4 dozen cookies, entire pints of ice cream, Snickers bars really do satisfy. I'm also crazy wimpy and self-conscious in the gym because I have no muscle or athletic aptitude.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? I have to eat more nutritious food, snack less, and exercise!

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? My friend. If I'm shooting for the moon: my cousin's model girlfriend or Kristen Bell.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? A pair of pants I saw in Italy, then saved up for a year to buy, that no longer fit.

What are your fitness/health goals? lose 30 lbs and be able to pass the fitness test to get hired as a police officer.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? I'm getting uncomfortable with my weight. I was trying on clothes at a store and hated looking at myself. Also I realised I couldn't pass a basic fitness test to become a police officer. A roadblack to my career.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Depression and eating out of habit and boredom. I stuggle with depression and am on medicine, but sometimes I just have bad days where I hate everything and don't want to try anymore. I tend to eat out of boredom or habit. That is something I want to stop doing, or at least eat healthier when I do.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? Guess I put some of this answer in with the answer above, but another thing I need to work on is proper portion sizes and not getting second helpings.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? : I want to look better than the picture of me hanging on the fridge. I want to look thinner and healthier.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? Probably cliche, but I want to wear a bikini on my honey moon. There's no chance you'd get me in one now, but hopefully by June I can do it!
