Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Turbo Jam and Taebo

What are your fitness/health goals? I am within the normal weight range for my height but since I have a pretty small frame, I'm aiming to lose a few pounds. I'd also like to develop a healthy lifestyle so I won't suffer the same ailments as my mom has now.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? When my mom found out she had a high bad cholesterol level and when I noted that heart diseases seem to be genetic in our family, I decided to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? I am addicted to carbs especially pasta and sweets. I may lose a few pounds but they come creeping back when I give in to temptations.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve?
1) Ability to control temptations (chocolates, pasta, etc.).
2) Be within my set calorie intake of 1200 - 1500 calories per day
3) Choosing healthy foods over junk food

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? My officemate who doesn't seem to have trouble maintaining her weight. To think that she has a bigger appetite than I do.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? My small-sized slacks for work.

Screen Name: MaggieShines

Age/Age Range: 45

Family Life: Long divorced. Technically single but happily involved. 1 daughter, who is now 21

Occupation: Writer/editor

Hobbies and Interests: Cooking, crosswords, mosaics

Favorite Music: Southern-fried rock, contemporary Christian

Favorite Color(s): Purple, scarlet, emerald, orange

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: God, I have none <<hanging head in shame>>

What are your fitness/health goals? I would like to weigh 150, which means losing more than 100 pounds. But for now, I just want to start to feel better and be one of those people who opt to light a candle over simply cursing the darkness.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? There have been many. But the one that prompted me to begin this journey anew, with conviction, happened last week. I was about to be discharged from a short hospital stay and found myself alone in the room with my "chart." I must have been seen by about 25 doctors, so there was a report from each of them. As I flipped through the pages, I saw one word over and over and over again: obese. That's not who I am, I wanted to scream.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? I despise restrictions, I despise routine. I love the idea of living grandly and abundantly, and I hate the idea of not being able to take food as a lover.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve?
1) I need to exercise. I just need to start.
2) I can't afford to be lazy and not prepare my menu ahead of time.
3) I have to get over myself and stop resenting that I have to count calories and try to look at it as more of a challenge than a burden.
4) And I must ad: I have to stop being lured away from common-sense eating by the promise every get-thin-quick scheme that comes down the pike.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? My boyfriend's ex girlfriend.

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

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? Seeing numbers I never thought I would see on the scale. I entered college in the 160s, and I said, "as long as I never see the 170s..." and then I saw the 170s and said "as long as I never see the 180s..." It was the last straw when I stepped on the scale and it said 195

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Staying motivated, dealing with social situations & food, boredom eating

Hmm, stretch more before exercising, suck it up and go to some fitness classes so I am having fun while working out, eating a more nutritionally balanced diet

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? My best friend (awful I know!)

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? a REALLY hot dress - something that does not allow for extra fat here or there. All of my fancy dresses tend to be very shaped or empire waisted... I want one of those with the silky fabric that is not forgiving!
