Screen Name: Aldergrove, BC

Age/Age Range: 28

Family Life: Living with boyfriend of 8+ years

Occupation:Office Assistant

Hobbies and Interests:I love to swim, and take my dog on walks. Other then that me and my b/f are a pretty mellow couple now, we like to do work around the townhouse we bought 2 years ago, and stay in a watch movies etc.

Favorite Music: So many different things. Right now in Love with Adele, who isn't tho right?

Favorite Color(s): Light Pink Blue and Yellow. Love Tiffany Blue.

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Swimming and walking my dog.

What are your fitness/health goals? I want to get to the point where I can go for a job and not be so out of breath I have to stop to walk every minute, and basically just get to the point where I do some sort of physical activity everyday not because I am making my self, but because it's now a part of my daily routine.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? Every morning when I get dressed I have a hard time finding something to wear that makes me feel comfortable and like my fat isn't hanging over my pants. After highschool I was 118, and have gained 30 lbs in the past 10 years since then. I want to get back to feeling good about myself instead of embarrased when I run into an old friend.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? I find it hard to stick with a diet, I often give up if I don't see results. I need to stop the yo yo ing and just stay on a healthy plan I can do for life.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? I need to exercise more, much more. And I need to learn to make smarter choices, even when I do feel like giving up and just eating that extra slice of pizza.


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

Screen Name: Debigulating

Age/Age Range: 28

Family Life: Married to a currently deployed sailor

Occupation: Education Consulting

Hobbies and Interests: Knitting, volunteering with the local shelter, reading. There are many I want to take up/get better at, such as painting, photography, and playing the mandolin.

Favorite Music: Classic rock mainly, but modern rock works too

Favorite Color(s): Don't really have a favorite.

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Working with my trainer is SO much fun, but I am also working toward becoming a runner.

What are your fitness/health goals? I would like to at the very least be at 180 by the start of 2013 (that's the weight I met my husband at, by the time he comes home again). I would also like to run several races this year.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? This time around? It was specifically gardening with my MIL. I was getting tired after digging a couple holes. We had just moved in a new place, and I struggled to help adequately with that too. Lots of things have compiled to make me feel terribly unfit, and I cannot stand feeling weak. Weight loss goes hand in hand with physical fitness.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? All-or-nothing thinking. If I eat off plan I struggle to get back on.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? I've got the exercise portion down, so I just have to work on food intake. I need to plan better, every day. I need to not stress out about the scale. I need to eat breakfast.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? : I've honestly never thought about it

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? Cute summer dresses!!
