USERNAME/REAL NAME: Megs6703 - Megan

AGE: 24

BIRTHDAY: Halloween!

MARITAL STATUS: married

FAMILY INFO (anything you care to share about your family, children, hubby, etc.): um.....I have the greatest husband ever....no kids.....

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: I don't have time for hobbies. I'm getting ready to graduate college in May and I work.....ok so I guess I do have time for hobbies! I'd love to say, Oh, my hobbies include going to the gym and hiking everyday! But that'd be a lie. My hobbies include lying around as much as possible and reading.


PETS: one dog, a black lab named Storm, and the coolest cat ever- George.

ATKINS START DATE: 10/4/04

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: I'd done WW for a long long time and it sorta quit working for me....or I quit working for it....either way I needed a change

TOP WEIGHT: top weight ever was 175...that was about 2 years ago

CURRENT WEIGHT: weighed myself this morning at 156

GOAL WEIGHT: 140

HEIGHT: 5'5 1/4 (that 1/4 is hugely important)

EYE COLOR: blue

HAIR COLOR: red

OCCUPATION: I'm a research assistant for a center on drug and alcohol research. I'm a psychology major and thinking about grad school....

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: the SOUTH. I LOVE THE SOUTH!

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: um....that it doesn't happen for me? Does that count? Biggest problem is that when I have a bad day I reward myself with comfort food....my biggest weakness is ice cream or some good homemade cookies or brownies....I should stop thinking about that now.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I told myself I would try this for 2 weeks. I've already started losing after 4 days. That motivates me.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm fun. ha! I don't know! I just hate to leave a question blank. How about....I love my life. Every bit of it. Except the weight. Otherwise, my husband's adorable, my dog's nice and cuddly, and my cat's got the greatest attitude....I love my job, LOVE it.....and school's ok since I'm graduating soon. So there you go. I'm a basically happy person, but I do get down on myself over the weight pretty easily.

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: I don't know about experiences yet since I've just started this. I can say that when you're tempted to cheat, think back to the time you stood on that scale and you had lost a pound....think about how euphoric that was.....it might just get you through the tempation.

I can def relate to some women feeling depressed, even something as serious as suicidal..thats how bad I let myself get. I can def relate to trying the weight loss over and over and failing each time. Wondering what happened? Especially when ya want it so bad...asking yourself, "then why am I failing?"...WELLLL..Im here to DO IT and HELP any lady DO it also. Im not going to give up and either are you ladies!!! wooooohoooooo!

USERNAME/REAL NAME: elysia/Nicola

AGE: 19

BIRTHDAY: 04/04

MARITAL STATUS: Single

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: History, listening to music, going to the cinema, walking, cycling, cooking

PETS: One hamster called Lance

ATKINS START DATE: This time around: today, 14/12/04. I had a 3 month stint in the Summer of 2003 where I lost about 30lbs (got down to about 134lbs) - quite a bit short of my target weight but enough to make me fairly happy about my size. However, I then went off to uni and got a bit slack... mercifully though, I only managed to put on about 6lbs. This time I'm absolutely determined to get down to my target! I want to reach it by my 20th birthday on 04/04/05... I hope that's not too unrealistic, I know the last few lbs are the hardest to lose.

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE ATKINS: I liked the idea of being able to eat larger quantities of food than other diets allowed.

TOP WEIGHT: Around 164lbs, which for my height (5'6") was never really obese, but I was big enough to make me unhappy.

CURRENT WEIGHT: 140lbs (approx, I don't trust my scales at all)

GOAL WEIGHT: 126lbs (sounds like a weird number to choose but in British measurements it's 9 stone on the dot)

HEIGHT: 5'6"

EYE COLOR: Blue

HAIR COLOR: Light brown

OCCUPATION: Accountant

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Edinburgh, United Kingdom

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I get sweet cravings and I lose control - I can't just have one choclate bar, I have to eat the whole pack

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: The goal is in sight, I'm no longer a poor student so I can afford to eat healthily.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? Not really!

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: I know that having snacks with me at all times has helped me avoid temptation in the past. Also, making friends and family members aware of the 'diet' is really important - on more than one occassion I've been given a box of chocolates as a gift which has led me astray!

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I was asked a question regarding my family and that gave me a different outlook on life.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I LOVE food!!. I am an emotional eater as well as a person that samples things. If I am craving a food, nothing would stop me from eating it. I realize that I must change my thinking regarding food or this will destroy me.

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: I completed Atkins 5 years ago and was impressed with the results. I know now that I have to stick with the program and be careful of the things I eat. I look forward to the weight loss, but I will need support.
