First name: Andrea

Geographical location: Smack dab in the middle of PA

Age: 27

Marital Status: Getting married June 20th!

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: School Counselor

Pets: 2 cats (Phoebe and Noah)

Hobbies/Interests: reading, running, music, working at an animal shelter, tv time (mostly Scrubs), baking, nutrition/fitness

Height: 5'5

Eye/Hair Color: Hazel/Been dyed many, many times but back to BROWN now

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 12/03, and now 3/09

Starting Weight: 200

Present Weight: 158.6

Goal Weight: Had gotten to 138 but have gained back 20 lbs. Looking at 135-140

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Eating (eating out, boredom eating, eating when I'm tired, eating as much as my 160 lb-incredibly fast metabolism-fiance)

Following any specific plan: Logging all my food on DietPower and exercising at least 5 days a week. Training for a marathon at the end of the year.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Logging EVERYDAY, even overeating days. No more, "oh this day is ruined, I'll start over tomorrow and eat anything I want today!" I have to stay accountable. Every calorie counts.

First name: Stephanie

Geographical location: Maryland

Age: 21

Marital Status: Solo~

Occupation: student/military

Pets: 2 kitties

Hobbies/Interests: fencing, tennis, swimming, singing, theatre

Height: 5'8''

Eye/Hair Color: blue/blonde

Starting Date of Weight-loss Journey: April 7th, 2009

Starting Weight: 169.6

Present Weight: 165.8

Goal Weight: 140

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I have really long workdays and lots of homework at night so snacking--esp. late night snacking to stay awake--is my biggest problem.

Following any specific plan: Not at the moment...too difficult to explain but school presents many difficulties when trying to follow a weight loss plan (unless one is deemed "overweight" by the system and put on a weight remediation plan...which isn't a good time), so once school is over I think I'd like to add in some Nutrisystem or Weight Watchers or something.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm tracking my weight loss online here....so there's more pressure to get it done. And I'm learning to accept that losing weight is more of a lifestyle change than a quick fix to something.

First name (if you want to tell): Sandy

Geographical location: New Zealand

Age: 20

Marital Status: single

Children/Ages: none

Occupation: Post-grad student - studying accounting (very dull, I know :P)

Pets: none

Hobbies/Interests: love LOVE reading, writing, music, cooking, love walking and lots more

Height: 5'2"

Eye/Hair Color: brown/brunette

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Started Dec 9th 2008

Starting Weight: 140

Present Weight: 133

Goal Weight: My ultimate goal weight is 120 pounds.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I am real emotional eater, if I am bored I eat, if I am happy I eat, if I am sad I eat... Also come from a food loving family, we eat very healthy foods BUT we have no concept of portion sizes, the more the better lol

Following any specific plan: Calorie counting and excercise

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I think the main difference has been seeing that I can actually do it, that I can go for weeks without touching a single piece of junk food and I feel just as a good, if not better. I see how I am on good days - happy and proud, on binge days I am upset and depressed. Its those little things that made me realise that I can do it!

Anything else you would like to share with us: I am just so happy to have found this place! I've been doing ok alone but unfortunately I don't really have anyone at all that can really support me, my friends aren't too concerned with what they eat (and yet they are all sticks :P), and my family have been subjected to far too much of my constant "I am gonna do it!" and then ofcourse not doing it! I just really think what's meet missing is having the opportunity to talk with others my age and in my shoes, and for us to support each other

Geographical location: NY

Age: 25

Marital Status: Single

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: student

Pets: 1 dog

Hobbies/Interests: reading, computers, movies, hiking

Height: 5'1

Eye/Hair Color: blonde/blue

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: November 2008

Starting Weight: 195 lbs - estimated since I stopped weighing at 187 and definitely gained after that. I was finally shocked into taking action when a size 16 became too tight.

Present Weight: 139 lbs

Goal Weight: 105 lbs

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: finding the motivation to exercise

Following any specific plan: count calories, cut sugar, no dairy
-have a folder of pictures of what I want my goal to look like and a folder of pictures of myself that remind me of the former weight.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: If I fall off the wagon and binge one day or even a couple days, I tell myself that it didn't ruin everything and I will go back to being watchful the next day.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I find jeans that fit then buy a pair one size too small and wear them only around the house for motivation

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Today, 4/20/09 - I'm not counting anything before today because it wasn't anywhere near healthy.

Starting Weight: 142 lbs

Present Weight: 128 lbs (32% body fat, so I still have far to go).
