What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I've realized that I'm way too young to have so many health problems (gallstones, stomach ulcers, arthritis in my feet and ankles to name a few) and if I don't want it to keep getting worse, now is the time to do something about it. So yeah, the weight loss isn't my main goal this time, being healthier is. Also, being single now helps. ;) That gives me a lot more time to devote to working on myself.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I never really had a weight issue, I was always healthy and active. Once I moved out onto my own, started eating out more and drinking I gained roughly 32lbs in about a year and a half. I now need to make a difference and actively change my habits.

Anything else you would like to share with us: My wardrobe has doubled over the past year and a half. I had to buy larger clothes that actually fit me, however I REFUSE to let go of my smaller jeans and dresses. Hopefully they will motivate me. :^: I want to feel great about myself again. Before gaining this weight I rarely wore makeup because I felt beautiful naturally. I now find myself putting on extravagant makeup to compensate for my weight. :(

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Student

Pets: 2 year old cat named Minnie Moose. I won't count the 20 other animals my family has.

Hobbies/Interests: Psychology, video games, music, playing guitar and drums, designing clothes, writing, aspiring.

Height: 5'7"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue/redish-blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: February 2008 (off and on)

Starting Weight: 370 lbs

Present Weight: 314 lbs

Goal Weight: 250-230 lbs

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I'm stubborn and I can stay in a constant state of denial for months at a time. :P

Following any specific plan: Counting calories, watching my fat grams and sodium, drinking around 32-64oz of water a day, exercising as much as I can stand to.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I always told myself I'd be at my goal weight by the time college swung around, and since I'm going this fall there's no other choice than to try my hardest now. I'm just fed up with being unhealthy and unhappy. I won't be able to eat another dorito without feeling overwhelming guilt again. (That's a good thing, lol.)

Anything else you would like to share with us: I started losing weight around this time last year when my family moved to the boondocks (it's amazingly easier to get out and exercise here with 48 acres of forest at my will), and all together I lost 50lbs. It came off pretty easily, but too much of last year was spent passively trying to lose weight (as in, not really caring what I eat or how much I exercise, but telling myself I'm trying), so I'm not letting that happen this year.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Bad habits with the family. I'm an emotional eater for sure. Everything is a hurdle. Trying to stay motivated.

Following any specific plan: Limiting bad foods. Little to no pop, water and healthy drinks. Trying to exercise more and get active. Watching what I eat.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: My whole life I've been overweight. Since 5th grade after my parents divorce. That sparked my emotional eating habits. There was a lot of stress and problems with that. My weight has slowly gotten higher. I've tried weight watchers in HS with my mom. Nothing seems to help my motivation. I just want to get healthy and feel better about myself. My life depends on it.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I am a college student that commutes, and there is a gym on campus. I am trying to just find the motivation from others that can't sabotage my efforts. I'm wanting a broader support network. I want to stay healthy, happy,and feeling good about myself.
