Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Over-eating at meals and snacking in between

Following any specific plan: Nope

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I've never been as consistent about going to the gym as I have recently...might have something to do with paying for a gym membership.

Anything else you would like to share with us: My weight probably like a lot of people's on here fluctuates a lot...I've been everything from a size 4 to a size 14 and though I've listed July 2007 as the start of my weightloss journey, that's just the time I hit my absolute (to date) max...I got down to 165, then back up to 170, now back down to about 160.

Height: 5'6

Default

First name: aggie

Geographical location: near chicago

Age: eighteen (I know this is 20-somethings!)

Marital Status: in a relationship

Children/Ages: none for a long, long time

Occupation: n/a. I'm working, but it's all temporary jobs for now

Pets: none, yet. still live at home and the family hates pets.

Hobbies/Interests: poetry writing, watercolor painting, psychology, linguistics, middle-eastern and southeast asian culture, shopping (haha!)

Height: 5'6"

Eye/Hair Color: green-ish and dark brown.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: um, may 2009, I guess.

Starting Weight: about 250

Present Weight: 238!

Goal Weight: 125-130ish.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: sticking to an exercise routine.

Following any specific plan: no, not really. taking diet supplements and not officially "dieting", since the term demotivates me.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm no longer at school, and I'm making my own money, so all the stress I used to have is gone, and I have money to buy my own groceries. a big issue with me before was that my family loves junk food so that's all we'd buy... but because I couldn't buy my own groceries, I'd be stuck eating what they bought and it never ended well.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm happy to have found this board; people are genuine and supportive and honest about their journeys through weight loss. it's the kinds of things I had never found before, so this motivates me to start being honest with myself about my weight and my habits.

Starting Weight:

Present Weight:
/

Goal Weight:
145

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss:
Getting started and sticking with it!

Following any specific plan:
Mostly I'm just researching and learning better ways to cook/healthier foods and modifying my portions. I've been changing up the unhealthy things I eat for healthier alternatives, and cut out 99.9% of fast food. I'm watching my calorie intake and using fitday to keep track of myself.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:
I've never really felt dedicated to wanting to do it, but over the winter months looking at myself I got so disgusted and I just kept saying I'll do it later I'll do it later. Then spring came and I would have a hard time keeping up with my kids without being out of breath, and just felt so.. blah all the time I was getting depressed, so I knew it was time for a change. I've slowly been working up to really dedicating myself to it but now I'm ready to just jump in and get going.

First name: Erin

Age: 25

Marital Status: In a very long term relationship.

Children/Ages: none

Occupation: lawyer-to-be… studying for the bar exam this summer! eep!

Pets: several awesome cats

Hobbies/Interests: drawing and painting, reading a lot

Height: 5’8”

Eye/Hair Color: brown/blue-green

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: It’s been a long process… I’ll say today, since I’m starting a workout plan and beginning to post on the forums.

Starting Weight: 170, but I've been higher before

Present Weight: 170

Goal Weight: 150, or whatever feels right. I don’t want to be skinny, I just want to be toned and be able to wear whatever I want without bulges. I also want to remain the same weight for the rest of my life- my mom had wardrobes in 4 different sizes, and I’m trying to own as little as is feasible, so I do NOT want to do that… I want to get to a happy, reasonable weight and stay there with no more food drama.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I love me some carbs. I’m also really lazy about exercise and tend to make a lot of excuses- I need to do it no matter what. The weird thing is that I LIKE doing it- it’s some mental block or self sabotage that prevents me from starting.

Following any specific plan: I made a bracelet that I use to track calories, and an exercise chart (Couch-to-5k, yoga, and some weights/pilates exercises).

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I’m finally out of school, and I don’t want to drag these 20 pounds of baggage into my new life.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I truly need to stay committed to losing the weight and maintaining the lose once I have. And not becoming intimidated by other peoples progress by thinking I'll never have the same results.

Following any specific plan: I'm currently following the Insulin Resistant Diet and work my butt of with Jillian doing the 30 Day Shred.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I was smaller throughout my entire life until I became an adult. I sort of became comfortable with being a little heavier until one day I realized OMG - this it not a little heavier this is A LOT! So this is my 1st official try @ make my life healthier and happier.

Anything else you would like to share with us: That I love the atmosphere here. It's all about love and peace. No hatred and I truly appreciate all the support ladies. Thank you.

This is my second attempt since I was here on the board..
Last year I went down to 144, but I never transitioned and my eating habits became much worse than they had ever been.. a lot of emotional eating, a lot of stress eating. Needless to say, this time I am getting some help to sort out all the stuff that has hindered me.
