First name: Jess

Geographical location: Oklahoma

Age: 25

Marital Status: Dating

Children/Ages: 3 year old prince charming who will be 4 in June

Occupation
: Teacher/pre-k director, part-time stylist

Pets
: Does the child count?

Hobbies/Interests: Singing, musical theatre, organizing, making things (recently bows and tutus for my niece)

Height: 5'10"

Eye/Hair Color
: Eyes: dark, dark, daaaark brown; Hair: Now? The girls at the salon call me Snow Cone Head. It's also naturally dark, dark, daaaark brown, but I currently have rainbow streaks due to a slow day at the salon.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Perpetual

Starting Weight: Sorry...not comfortable enough yet.

Present Weight: Ditto

Goal Weight: I'm shooting for a size 14ish, whatever that equates to in pounds.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: PCOS, boredom...and I like to sleep.

Following any specific plan: My doc said the South Beach Diet is beneficial for PCOS, but I don't know yet how strictly that must be followed. Be more purposefully active (I love my Wii Fit and DDR!!). I run around with my little one, but I need to streamline.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I know that I have to work extra hard (PCOS), and I want to be able to do anything and everything my little guy wants to do (i.e., there's a 250 lb weight limit to go horseback riding at Disney World...in case he decides he ever wants to ride a horse there, etc.)

Anything else you would like to share with us: I spent almost an hour looking at the success stories, and I really hope I'm posting my own sooner than later!!!

Children/Ages: None but I hope to start a family once I am married

Occupation: None at present as I just lost my job. My ideal job would be a housewife / stay at home mum but only once I am married

Pets: A gorgeous springer spaniel named Jazz and a tortoise shell cat named Jupiter, though she is at my parents house

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, writing, day dreaming, spending time with my fiance and friends, playing video games, taking walks and runs with Jazz, clothes shopping, and taking hot bubble baths. My interests include political science, medieval history, the rennaisance, victorian era, 40s and 50s, etiquette and home making, rollar coasters and girlie things.

Height: 5'3''

Eye/Hair Color: Blue

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Of my current journey, 24 May 2009. But my journey in its entirey has been going on for a very long time.

Starting Weight: 159lb

Present Weight: 159lb

Goal Weight: 133lb

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Laziness and not eating the same as my fiance since he eats anything and everything

Following any specific plan: Not really. I prefer to count weight watchers points rather than colaories since I have all the weight watchers books but I haven't really said to myself, right you are going to do weight watchers or any other plan. I'm really just trying to be sensible and not deny myself of anything or think of myself as being on a diet - I've been down that route so many times and it never works.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'mn not as impatient as I used to be, and I don't hate myself anymore. I'm a happy person and I'm happy with how I am for the most part. I don't think i'm gross like I used to and I don't punish myself with fad diets anymore either. I just want to lose a bit of weight but I want to do it properly.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm happy to be here

Age:27

Marital Status: going on two years of marriage

Children/Ages: oh no. hahahahahaha.

Occupation: grad student/retail management

Pets: an evil kitteh named Ringo (she's pretty brand new and my first cat! lol- i feel like a proud parent or something. is that weird?! lol)

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, being in the woods, wine, camping, learning, cooking, eating, wine, thinking, philosophy, theories, talking about ideas, having fun, laughing, escaping reality, heated discussions, staying up all night, being barefoot...

Height:5'5"

Eye/Hair Color: eyes are milk chocolate brown. hair? eh, it depends. usually blond-ish

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: pretty much all my life. this go? well, no time like the present!

Starting Weight:140ish

Present Weight:140ish

Goal Weight:120ish

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss: i eat just to eat. sometimes emotional, sometimes boredom. or just because i can....

Following any specific plan:right now i'm trying to carb cycle. sometimes being strict is best for me. not going to continue on this- i just want to find food uninteresting in the sense of stuffing my face/belly.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: well, not sure. i think from the last time around i developed some issues. i just want to get my mind off food and on to working out, keeping busy, finding balance. i guess the big thing is sticking to a plan and then developing, and sticking to, a way of life.

Anything else you would like to share with us: well, i lost weight a few years back- from about where i am now to my lowest of 116. i have done tons of research on the topic, i have a weird eclectic knowledge of many things weight loss related and many friends who have lots of knowledge, and they have taught me well, but i just have to put it back into use... i gained the weight back when we got ready to move across the country. well, i think my "affliction" got to me a bit before we moved, but i just want to get over it and get on with my life.
