Hi! this is a great idea! Since this is my first day, I figured this would be a good place to post.

USERNAME/REAL NAME: brokensymphony/ Lucy

AGE: 20

BIRTHDAY: January 9th

MARITAL STATUS: Eternally single

SPOUSE’S NAME: I have no clue, but if you find him can you let me know?

CHILDREN/AGES: None yet

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Singing, dancing, reading books which make me feel educated [even if I don't understand them! hehe] US teen dramas, music, and watching diet programmes

PETS: 2 Cats

TOP WEIGHT: 292

CURRENT WEIGHT: 253

GOAL WEIGHT: 140

HEIGHT: 5ft 8"

EYE COLOR: Brown

HAIR COLOR: Brown

OCCUPATION: Erm.. student? Does that count??

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Middlesbrough, UK

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: The clue's in the question lol but I think my biggest hurdle is going to be eating because I'm hungry, rather than bored or down. My emotions control my eating habits 24/7! Being able to control portion sizes and making healthy food choices is also tough sometimes, so I'd like to conquer those.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: The idea that if I don't act now, the only thing that's going to happen is I get bigger and bigger and I find it hard to face the world enough now, so I really can't comprehend gaining. I'm not living life as I should be because of my weight, and knowing what I'm missing out on hurts like ****, and it scares me to think that this could be the rest of my life. I'm more determined than ever to be the me I always wanted to be!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm a pretty approachable girl, and I'm always on the lookout for new friends, no matter who or where they are! I I'm going to try my hardest to be as active on here as possible, I have been known to be a bit of a lurker! This is life-changing for me, and I love the group mentality here, and I'd love to be a part of it!
