Height: 5'6


User Name: lalalaknockknees
Current weight/goal: 146lbs or 68kg/ 121lbs or 55kg
Age: 19
Location: Slovenia
Marital Status: Non-exsistant
Kids: Not yet.
Pets: Sadly no.
Work: Architectural student, Waitress, Hotel Singer, Musical Theatre Performer... typical right?
Hobbies: Singing, acting, dancing, drawing, design, reading, movie watching, and so on...
Reasons for losing weight: I want to fell good in my body again and stop neglecting myself...simple as that. I've always loved to exercise and kept in shape, but when it came time to start preparing for uni, I started putting everything on hold, sitting my reer of everyday drawing and studying to pass the exams, and working double shifts in the summer to get more money...it started getting worse and worse, being a hotel waitress, I always had loads to eat and so I came to this point..where something had to change.
Favorite Exercise: Give me a gym, a dance studio or a pool and I'm set,
Weight loss challenges: When I start eating something I love, there's no stopping me. I get full really fast but I go on and on because the food is just so damn good. And I'm also really lazy and get distracted easily, and when there is work to do I always make excuses for myself (Oh, I have to work today, I'll exercise tommorow or Oh, I ate chocolate today, better start my diet tomorrow).. and it's worsening.

Tent or spa: Can't I have both?
Ocean or mountains: Ocean, all the way.

User Name: amberconnolly; real name is Amber

Starting weight/current/goal - 149/145/130 or lower?

Location: London, England

Age: 30

Marital Status: Married for 4.5 years

Kids: none, but trying!

Pets: Two cats, Darwin and P.K.

Work: 3rd Grade Teacher

Plan: South Beach/Paleo. I'm mostly Paleo, but I do eat yogurt, cheese, and the occasionally bean and legume. I know that SB is low-fat stuff, but I only eat LF when there is nothing added to it.

Favorite diet cheat: Potatoes!

Hobbies: Music, I play bass guitar in a rock band; dance, I've recently fallen in love with ballet; reading, sunshine, traveling

Reasons for wanting to lose weight: health, my mother has been a yo-yo dieter for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I never had any trouble staying slim, but inside, I must have been really unhealthy because I always ate garbage, so now I'm trying to eat better and the effects will hopefully be to lose weight!
