What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? Shopping in the regular/misses sizes. They have so many options ot choose from.

Screen Name: PaniAnia

Age/Age Range: 28

Family Life: Married

Occupation: Paralegal

Hobbies and Interests: Cooking, reading, music, being outdoors, etc.

Favorite Music: Classic Rock - for me great music essentially stopped there

Favorite Color(s): Green

Favorite Exercise/Workout: Ick, not a big fan, but if I'd have to pick something I'd say walking my dog. I tend not to really like structured exercise.

What are your fitness/health goals? To not get winded running around the block (although I must add that part of that is due to exercise induced asthma), hey I'll be extravagant and up the ante to say to not get winded running around the block TWICE. All joking aside to uncover the fit person hiding under the layer of fat I've been acquiring for what seems like my whole life so that when people see the new me they say, "OMG, is that the chubby sister, no, it can't be!"

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? My seemingly never ending work pant hunting mission which forced me to see saddle-bag after saddle-bag after saddle-bag and decide, you know what, these pants would look a whole lot better minus the saddle-bags.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Bingeing and emotional eating on account of stress and just plain boredom.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? Binge control, actually exercising, sweets!!

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? My ex-best friend and person to whom my father used to compare me ALL THE TIME, who luckily for me seems to be getting steadily rounder.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? It may sound extreme, but since I sit around in professional attire every day and t-shirt and jeans it on the weekends I would love to totally dress up on Halloween ala Sookie Stackhouse from True Blood in that werewolf club scene (the one with the black leather bustier, painted on leather pants, and sky-high stilletos. I can imagine my husband's jaw dropping right now. We probably wouldn't even make it to the Halloween party

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Everything. I think weight for me is more of an emotional thing. A whole life thing even. I need to get my mind straight as well as my body.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? I want to look like Beyonce when she was a bit heavier.

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Jogging, Sweatin' to the Oldies!!

What are your fitness/health goals? I'd like to be able to run indefinitely....perhaps do a marathon someday. I want to get down to around 145 -- But I have no idea what my body type really is, so that could change as I get closer to it.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? Honestly, I'm not really sure what did it this time. I have been dieting off and on since I was 13, but for some reason it seems to be sticking this time around.
