Hi everyone! So glad to have found this forum, it's really great.

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Editor/Translator

Pets: no thanks

Hobbies/Interests: reading, travel, history, cycling, attempting to be a runner

Height: 5'6"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue/Dark Brown

Starting Weight: 150

Present Weight: 150

Following any specific plan: going to try eating similar to sonoma plan guidelines and regular exercise of some form 5x week

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I had a really bad cycling accident last July (partially why I need to lose now- ended up gaining 15 lbs due to medications) that resulted in medical treatment for 5+ months (still have physio). Now, I can use my right hand and arm again, thank the lord, but to about 90% of what it was. Weightlifting on machines, pull ups or push ups, certain stretches etc. are not a physical possibility for me anymore, which really stinks.
