Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: late night eating (when I can't sleep), depression and PCOS

Following any specific plan: Fat Smash Diet

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: My weight has always fluctuated, but a few years ago I was taking medication and hormones that messed with my system. I went from a steady 180 (a little overweight, but generally happy) to 220, and then gained another 30 pounds while in graduate school. Now I'm ready to make the journey back to where I started. I have more time, and I have the support of my family and friends to get there. Oh, and I'm not on the meds anymore.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm really enjoying the Fat Smash Diet. Pretty simple, and I feel like I'm always eating!

Hobbies/Interests: Guitar & singing, making books, bike riding around Boston

Height: 5'8"

Eye/Hair Color: baby blue/various shades of brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Oh lord, September 2007. I've been off the wagon for a lo-o-o-ng time.

Starting Weight: 240, way back in September, I got down to 175, then took a quick ride back up the weight ladder and have hovered around 215 for the last year.

Present Weight: 208

Goal Weight: 160 (it's difficult to imagine that, right now)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Believing in myself, not half-assing everything.

Following any specific plan: Calorie Counting. After two months and losing only 5-7 pounds (keeps jumping back and forth), I realized that if I don't calorie count, this just isn't going to work.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: This time I'm putting in a lot more effort. Last time I had a drastic lifestyle change, going from completely sedentary, to moving away and getting rid of my car, walking everywhere, becoming vegan and having to buy food on my own! The weight came off by accident. Now, I already have a relatively active lifestyle, and I already eat healthy! Even brown rice can pack on the pounds! I guess vegan cupcakes are just as bad as regular ones.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Thanks for reading!
