Here's my Bio, everyone!



DATE: September 27th, 2006

USERNAME/REAL NAME: TillyGirl04/Eleanore

AGE: 19

BIRTHDAY: May 18th, 1987

MARITAL STATUS: Engaged (does that count?? )

SPOUSE’S NAME: Will

CHILDREN/AGES: No Children...a little too young for that now..

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Scrapbooking, Reading, Writing, Editing, Filming, Movie- Watching, Fitness (sometimes)...

PETS: Dog: Tilly (Hence my username... Eleanore was unavailable)...

TOP WEIGHT: The heaviest I have ever been is 224 Ouch..

CURRENT WEIGHT: 202.... I know I have a way to go but, it's inspiring to know that I have come so far already!

GOAL WEIGHT: 150.. My Dr. told me I shouldn't shoot for any lower than that because I have a big frame and according to all those tests they do where they pinch the fat and everything, I have 143LBS of lean body mass, and he guesses this will go up seven pounds or so since I'll be doing weight training... I'm happy with that weight though because I know that I'm never going to be a 120lb girl.... it's just impossible because of my bones so.. Im happy with being who I am..

HEIGHT: 5'7"

EYE COLOR: Blue

HAIR COLOR: Blonde

OCCUPATION: I work part time at a bookstore, and go to college full time.

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: I live in a suburb of Los Angeles, CA

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I get migraine headaches and have asthma, and these are triggered by many things---exercize being one of them... so I get kind of scared to exercize a lot because I dont want to trigger anything and I don't really know how to gage my impact.. When I exercize, I like to go all out and just, do it because I feel like if I don't then I am wasting my time... I like to feel it... so I end up overdoing it... this is my biggest problem.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL:
Well I just go at my own pace, and don't worry if I don't break a sweat everyday... because I need to safely do this.... so instead of going jogging, or riding vigorously on the bike, Ill take a nice stroll, or steady my pace on the bike.. so far it has been working...

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I appreciate all of the support I have been getting here. I am determined to lose this weight. I am 19 and feel WAY older because of my lack of energy and losing the weight is something I have to do to get my life back...
Im always here if anyone needs some support as well...
