MARITAL STATUS: married - 2nd time around.

FAMILY INFO (anything you care to share about your family, children, hubby, etc.): 3 kids (2 from previous marriage): Joel, 18, Emily 13 (going on 25!) Sam, 6. Remarried 7 years ago - dh is 5 years younger than me!
Joel is currently finishing high school and will hopefully be entering university in the fall (will stay close to home cuz he's a Prince! ). Very politically minded so hoping to get into an International Development program - or something like that. Very confident and outgoing and is School President!
Emily is entering high school (grade 9) in the fall, is a very creative/eclectic (dramatic?) child and loves to dance (tap, jazz, hip-hop).....and Sam - well he's just the cutest and funniest kid and is spoiled and loved by ALL!

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Love to read, surf the net, play computer games, play the piano (not often enuf), music and TRAVEL! (especially cruising!).

PETS: Okay - I know you're expecting me to have a pet bunny, but alas I am allergic to most animals so no pets for me!

WW START DATE: January 8, 2005

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE WW: Did low carb before and was quite successful, and I liked the concept of Core and it's focus on eating good carbs! (and limiting sugar and white flour!)

TOP WEIGHT: 224

CURRENT WEIGHT: 214

GOAL WEIGHT: ?? 144??

HEIGHT: 5'3"

EYE COLOR: Light brown

HAIR COLOR: real color?? probaby mostly gray w/dark brown?? But now it's light brown w/golden blonde highlights

OCCUPATION: public servant - federal government

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Ottawa, Canada (the capital city!)

FAVORITE COLOR: PINK!!!

PET PEEVE: People who are rude and/or enjoy humiliating others!!!

FAVORITE FOODS: Are you kidding? Pizza, ice cream, ripple potato chips, REAL guacomole (in Mexico!), steak, mashed potatoes, tuna salad (can you tell why I'm here? )

FAVORITE EXERCISE: anything "dancey"...and walking (preferably outdoors!)

FAVORITE BOOK(S):Perfume by Patrick Susskind, Agatha Christie novels, Grisham, Dan Brown, Olivia Goldsmith - well I just LOVE to read!

FAVORITE MOVIE(S): Any comedy with Goldie Hawn (e.g. Private Benajmin, Overboard, Protocol), Wizard of Oz, Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Heidi (the origial w/Shirley Temple), A Fish Called Wanda (makes me crack up every time!)

FAVORITE MUSICIAN/GROUP:Major Elton John fan! ...also like Ace of Base, Genesis, Michael Buble, Neil Sedaka, Selena, Gloria Estefan and Lara Fabian.
Also LOVE Broadway Musicals - not too much passes thru here but would love to head to New York and have a blast!

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Not being influenced by the scale and staying with it even tho weight loss is sporadic.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I realize I need to do something to avoid future health issues - watched my mom die from heart issues and complications due to diabetes (kidney failure/dialysis) because of obesity - it was not pretty! Also realize it's not a race - slow and steady is okay - and every step gets me closer to my goal.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I love to joke around and have good time altho some may find me too sarcastic? I have a great smile with a dimple on my right cheek!

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: Slow and steady wins the race - remember to look at things other than the numbers on the scale...weight loss is not "linear" - you will not lose weight every week but will see other successes along the way!

Default

DATE: August 30, 2006

USERNAME/REAL NAME: Tejas/Rhonda

AGE: 60, very close to 61

BIRTHDAY: September 23, 1945

MARITAL STATUS: To be married on November 25, 2006
I am marrying my first sweetheart whom I met in high school in 1960. We dated for six months then went our separate ways, but never forgot each other.

We have each been married before and also had a spouse die from cancer.

FAMILY INFO (anything you care to share about your family, children, hubby, etc.): My fiance has four grown children and one grandchild. I have a godson and grand godson and am very close to a passle of nieces and nephews and their children, and children's children.

Obesity in the older years seems to run in the family..my mother, my siblings and some of my nieces struggled and are struggling with it. Like with everyone, it is some combination of genetics and environment.

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: I like to garden, sew and read...and spend quiet, relaxed time at home or with close friends. I don't travel as much as I would like because of the dogs (below).

PETS: Two dogs: Jake, a 7 year old Border Collie-Lab and Anna, an 8 year old Border Collie- Shepard. They are active and mischevious and expensive!

WW START DATE: I was introduced to WW by a friend about 6 years ago. I mostly just supported her in her quest to lose 100 pounds. She was successful, but on Atkins, not WW. She is quite an inspiration.

I went back to WW in the Winter 2003 and lost from 211 to 170 by the summer. Regrettably, by 2004 I gained 10 pounds back and by the summer of 2005 I was back up to 205 at one point. I went back to WW in March, 2006 at 198 and am now hovering in the low 190's. It has been so slow to lose this time around.

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE WW: Because it is healthy.

TOP WEIGHT: I can't remember exactly but 210-215.

CURRENT WEIGHT: 193

GOAL WEIGHT: 135-140

HEIGHT: 5' 4"

EYE COLOR: Depends on my mood! Blue to Green

HAIR COLOR: Dark brown with lots of grey in the front and on the sides.

OCCUPATION: Professor

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Toronto

FAVORITE COLOR: Red/orange/pink

PET PEEVE: "You know, like.." "And he's like and I'm like..." Grrrrrrrr...oh, and then there's whining...oh, and talking about the weather (great Canadian past-time)...oh, and then there's...

FAVORITE FOODS: Anything spicy.

FAVORITE EXERCISE: Walking, aerobics, Pilates

FAVORITE BOOK(S): There are just too many. I read everything from murder mysteries to political tomes. I don't read too many biographies but perhaps I should.

FAVORITE MOVIE(S): Again, too many. I've seen Harold and Maude about 8 times and that's probably more than I've watched any other movie. It makes me love life.

FAVORITE MUSICIAN/GROUP: I like jazz, blues and classical. I don't care for opera or hip-hop or acid rock.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Losing it, then keeping it off. HA! Original, aren't I? I like chocolate too much. I love bread. I love wine. I should be a European, not a Texan. Oh, then there's Bar-b-que.

My biggest weight loss problem is FOOD!

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I can't stand it that I put the weight back on. That just makes me toooo normal.

This time I'm more motivated by health reasons. I have no significant health problems so I want to keep it that way and I won't be able to if I carry around this extra weight.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm very politicized and see the world in political terms a lot. I can't bear the injustice and inequities in modern life. I'm also very interested in environmental issues, from anti-littering and recycling to global warming. Recently my own quest to improve the world is to consciously try to live by the Golden Rule. I've learned that essentially all major religions have some variant of "do unto others" as a part of their creeds. It's too bad that we have such trouble putting that sentiment into action...and I won't list all the ways I've failed at it!! ;_)

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: I hated it when I heard that women develop bodies like their mothers. That has been just too true in my case. But, it has been sobering to experience the changes in my own body that she must have experienced in hers. Since she died 11 years ago so I can't discuss this with her. But, one of my nieces has also gained a lot of weight so we do talk about it in relation to family matters.

It also helps enormously to discuss these matters with others...more than I ever thought it would.

USERNAME/REAL NAME: ToniDMB/Toni

AGE:27

BIRTHDAY:July 29th

MARITAL STATUS:Soon to be engaged!!!

FAMILY INFO (anything you care to share about your family, children, hubby, etc.):Single mother to a beautiful 10 year old son and I am in a wonderful relationship with a man I've been dating for almost two years and we're about to get engaged! Yay!

HOBBIES/INTERESTS:Spending time with friends and family, karaoke, playing guitar, going to the gym, and playing Wii, especially Dance Dance Revolution!

PETS: I have a Beagle named Missy, my boyfriend has a fat cat, Kenicki

WW START DATE: Officially today is my first day on the Core Plan, but I've been dieting seriously for almost a year, almost down 30 pounds!

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE WW: I've done weight watchers many times in the past but never had much success sticking to it. I believe it's because I have no self control when it comes to eating whatever I'm in the mood for, but making sure I measure and calculate points! That is why I'm so excited about the Core plan. All I have to think about is WHAT I eat. I need as much of the guesswork taken out as possible and I have a huge feeling that I will do so well on this plan!

TOP WEIGHT:307

CURRENT WEIGHT:278.5

GOAL WEIGHT:175 (but short term goal is 260 by December!)

HEIGHT:5' 10"

FAVORITE EXERCISE:Elliptical machine, treadmill, jogging, and my very favorite DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION! FUN FUN!

FAVORITE BOOK(S):Bible

FAVORITE MOVIE(S):Borat, Knocked Up, 40 Year Old Virgin, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Meet Me In St. Louis, It's a Wonderful Life and The Wizard of Oz.

FAVORITE MUSICIAN/GROUP:Ween, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, and Dave Matthews Band.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: boyfriend tempting me with late night junk food and pizza delivery. We are trying to save money for our wedding so that eliminates spending money on take out, which is going to really help me stick to this plan!

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I am extremely eager and am committed to planning for my meals ahead of time. I'm forcing myself to open up and try new foods (ff cottage cheese with pineapple-haven't ate any yet, but I brought it to work with me today-wish me luck!) to find new things that I know I will come to love and enjoy. I'm already hooked on exercise, but I know my eating is what needs work. I believe weight watchers core plan will give me the right tools I need to be successful!

Nice meeting you all ladies! Looking forward to being an active part in this board and getting to know everyone!
