Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: i like food a lot, especially in social situations (like to go out to dinner, etc). Just have to curtail that a little bit.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I feel like I am getting closer to 30 and things are changing. I need to be more aware of what I am doing to my body.

Hobbies/Interests: Fitness, cooking, reading, writing, movies, and learning new things

Height: 5'5

Eye/Hair Color: Brown hair and blue eyes

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 1/1/09

Starting Weight: 140ish

Present Weight: Last weighed was 137

Goal Weight: 125

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I started a new job and it is a desk job. I work with a lot of overweight people and they bring unhealthy things to snack on...and thats where I gained 10lbs. Luckily I caught myself gaining and decided to change. I'm maintaining what I gained ok, but am having trouble finding the motivation to work out.

Following any specific plan: Nothing specific. I am trying to eat better and am researching counting calories and healthier foods. I also discovered Jillian Michaels DVDs.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: This time I actually need to try harder. My previous jobs required my physical activity, so it was easier to keep weight off. Now I sit all day, and have to find the motivation to cook healthy dinners, bring healthy lunches, and workout sometime during the day.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I am soo happy I found this site. I've never been overweight, but I have experienced more weight gain in the last year since I've started this job. Your stories and suppot inspire me to change myself for my lifetime. I used to think "Hey I'm young, I can eat what I want and gain a few pounds and then work it off when I want..." But I've realized thats not true. My decisions now effect the rest of my life.

Eye/Hair Color: Green / Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: This time? Beginning of Feb 09.

Starting Weight: 240

Present Weight: 225

Goal Weight: 150 and below

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: My procrastination. I know that I need to go to the gym, but I always find reasons to either skip or shorten my workout.

Following any specific plan: No. Diets never work for me. Once I am told what I can't have, that is the only thing that I want to have. This time I am reading labels, following portion sizes, and amping up the fruits/veggies/water! I'm terming this a 'lifestyle change' and not a diet.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I am doing it for my health and not for my weight. I had a health scare in Feb and I suddenly realized that I am getting older and with age comes health problems. I do not want any future health problems that I may have to be because I am not healthy!

Anything else you would like to share with us: Not at the moment.

Hobbies/Interests: reading, painting, knitting, movies, hiking, just being outside in general

Height: 5'4

Eye/Hair Color: Dark Brown/brown-green

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Forever? I joined [email protected] about 6 weeks ago and due to a nasty bout of sinusitis that lasted two weeks, I've been kind of yo-yoing, but am down 5 lbs.

Starting Weight: 220

Present Weight: 215

Goal Weight: 170

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I really like food. I like to cook, I like to feed people...most recently I was described as a food pusher. I like exercise, but I have issues with motivation and accountability. I can suffer from very low self esteem, and that just puts me into a vicious circle.

Following any specific plan: Weight Watchers

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm taking steps to make myself accountable. At my last physical, my doctor told me some of my blood tests were on the high end of normal, some a little over the line, so I generally want to be healthy. My long term goal is 150 lbs, but I'm going to start with getting below 200.
