Screen Name: Mawkish Mo

Age/Age Range: Early 20's

Family Life: non-existent for the moment

Occupation: uni student

Hobbies and Interests: big reader, love to write, soccer player and gave up hockey this year but still love it

Favorite Music: classic rock, classical, occasional pop song, Queen, Panic! at the Disco, Jack's Mannequin

Favorite Color(s): an orangish-red colour

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: jogging, biking and any organized sport, especially soccer and hockey

What are your fitness/health goals? Fitness wise, I would like to be in tip top shape when the soccer season starts (games begins, no longer just practising). Usually the first game or two is really hard as we're all out of shape and I'd love to beat that. Of course, I would also love to have my knee healed by then too so I can actually run...

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? There was no particular incident. It was gradual, the noticing of my weight and the eating healthier stuff. I was suddenly noticing that hey, these pants don't fit like they used to so I would make small choices to eat better and then one day I decided to take it more seriously.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? I struggle when I see a week or two of no results. It begins to tick me off and I find temptations such as an extra helping of XYZ a lot more alluring

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? I need to become more strict with my food diary, I would like to go to the gym more often and stop complaining about the dang Canadian winters here that stop me from going outside and doing things like i would in the summer.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? My cousin, I guess. My sister too even. I've always been the other sister, the other cousin. I'm sick of it.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? I have this skirt that I bought years ago, when my weight was a lot lower. It was tight then but I bought with friends so I just went with it and said that the size four skirt fit me well. I want to fit in that skirt, with extra room available.

What are your fitness/health goals? To go back down to my original weight of 140, as well to tone up my body and then continue to maintain a healthy life style for myself and my health.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? When people I know around me continue to tell me how big I've gotten. I already knew it but sometimes having other's tell the truth makes you really want to work at it to prove to them that you don't always have to be fat and that you're just going through a "rough" time.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? : This chick who I work with who had the nerve to actually call me fat. She might have a skinny stomach but its clear all her food goes to her *** and hips. (sorry lol she really erked me.)

Screen Name:Stace

Age/Age Range:33 1/3

Family Life:Single, furry kids. (dog and cat)

Occupation:Admin Asst.

Hobbies and Interests:Bad movies, embroidery, cooking (a work in progress), thrift and flea market shopping, and other stuff I am not thinking of right now!

Favorite Music:My ipod tells me that I have a lot of classic soul, conscious rap, electro-pop and grunge. So I guess that.

Favorite Color(s): turquoise, green, orange, dark purple

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Walking my dog. I just got a kettlebell and I am really enjoying it so far!

What are your fitness/health goals? To be a "normal" weight for the first time since I was about 6 years old.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? I'd been under a lot of stress this year, and then got really sick in October. I'd always been the fairly healthy fat person, while I would get winded climbing steps or something I never really had major health problems. Well, it all seemed to catch up with me at once, and boy was that a wake up call. I don't want to be that sick ever again. Nor do I want to be diabetic, which is straight where I was headed.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? I want to exercise more, but don't always have the motivation for it. Also, a big part of my social life was going out with friends to a bar or co-workers to happy hour. I have had to cut that back drastically and that has been tough. But I would rather feel good than the way I felt a few months ago, even if that means being the one to order water or decline an invitation.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? Getting enough sleep so that I have enough energy, not waiting to get so hungry I overeat, being consistent.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? : There are a couple of friends who I have distanced myself from when I realized that they were not supportive, or preferred to keep me the way I am because they don't think when I am big I am competition. I hate that kind of thing, but the thought of them seeing me when I am done makes me secretly happy.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? I want to be able to pull off wearing almost anything. I have always felt so limited all my life in what I could wear, due to a lot of things either not looking good, or me not having enough confidence to buy and wear it. Thanks for this question, because now I am super excited about that day!
