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

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!

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!

So I could have SWORN I did this before, but in my downtime today I went back in and see no evidence thereof - so here we go:

User Name: ultimate bea

Current weight/goal: 191/165

Age: 44

Location: Philly suburbs

Marital Status: married - been together 25 years this coming April (not married quite that long, but they is when we celebrate our "anniversary")

Kids: 14 and 11 year old daughters

Pets: 4 kitties - one for each member of the family

Work: high school teacher for 21 years

Hobbies: Ultimate frisbee, reading, retail therapy without the actual buying
(usually), soccer, watching sports

Reasons for losing weight: I have blown both ACLs, and had the surgery and recovered, but have surgery pending for my shoulder and my foot - I need to not weight this much for the rehab!

Favorite Exercise: Ultimate frisbee (used to run, but . . .)

Weight loss challenges: I love anything made from a potato, and mashed cauliflower does not really cut it

Other fun ideas: My highest weight was 198 in 2009. That was exceptionally unhealthy. I went on SB and experienced great success: 3 years ago I weighed 155 and ran a half-marathon. Then the shoulder and foot and anxiety went all to heck and I gained 40 pounds in 2.5 years.

Tent or spa: both - tent for the weekend, then spa to work out the kinks from sleeping on the ground!

Ocean or mountains: both - ocean during the summer, mountains in the winter!

Be well -

User Name: mcsgabby
Current weight/goal: Current I'm at 237 and my goal is 165 - my highest was 256 and the lowest in the last couple years is 201. Yep...I yo-yo horribly and I really want to stop that foolishness!
Age: 48
Location: Northern Colorado
Marital Status: I was widowed in 2009 and was blessed by a second chance with my amazing DH in 2013
Kids: 24 year old son
Pets: Adorable but naughty Lhasa named Peanut
Work: HR Manager
Hobbies: I love all crafts especially paper crafting and sewing, belly dancing, reading, playing computer games, and spending time with my DH
Reasons for losing weight: I know that I feel so much better at a lower weight and I'm ready to be able to wake up in the morning and feel good. I'm also a belly dancer and I'd like to feel more confident in my costumes.
Favorite Exercise: Walking with my DH
Weight loss challenges: I absolutely love food and I have such horrible willpower. I have difficulty feeling full and also have a horrible habit of treating every meal like a special occasion. I need a mindset change!

Ocean or mountains: This is a really hard one! I live at the base of the Rocky Mountains and love them but I really love the warmth of the beaches in the S. Caribbean. I really can't choose - can I have both?
