S/C/G: 200/200/130

Height: 5'5"

Default

First name: Anna

Geographical location: Boston Area

Age: 22

Marital Status: Single

Children/Ages: None yet.

Occupation: College Student

Pets: none

Hobbies/Interests: gardening, history, (also, I really want to learn how to fly a sport aircraft!)

Height: 5'5"

Eye/Hair Color: Brown/Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: My freshman year I cut way back on food (very unhealthy dieting, lots of dizzy spells and blackening vision), and got down to the mid 150's, but over summer and sophomore year gained a lot back. These last few years, I've gained it all back, so essentially I'm starting over.

Starting Weight: 200

Present Weight: 200

Goal Weight: 130

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: My family loves to eat, also I tend to eat when I'm upset/depressed (which is often because of my body image issues and anxiety issues (argh, financial crisis, you are so not helping here)). Also, I'm really bad at sticking to exercise plans--seriously, I get embarrassed about being out walking/jogging around the streets with all the slender people.

Following any specific plan: Will be calorie counting and exercising 6 times a week. Cutting out coffee (yay decaf taster's choice! and most dairy and alcohol as well as gluten.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm actually going to work on exercising so that I get healthy instead of just starving the weight off (which wreaks havoc on my studies anyways). Dedication!

Anything else you would like to share with us: Perhaps this is tmi, but I'm trying to get rid of stretch marks on my poochy stomach (need toning!) and hips from the weight gain of the last few years. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Occupation: writer

Pets: Isabella (Izzy) - my little Shih Tzu, and Simon and Alvin - my two gray rescued kitties

Hobbies/Interests: writing, reading (currently reading the sookie stackhouse series), tennis, and actin' a fool with my girlfriends

Height: 5'5"

Eye/Hair Color: blue/red

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 4 months ago (June 2009)

Starting Weight: 250

Present Weight: 215

Goal Weight: 145

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I'm a stress eater, and every time things get hard to handle, it's very threatening for me. All I really want to do is sit in the corner and eat 3 bowls of reece's peanut butter puffs cereal. So I have to figure out how to be stressed without eating my way out of it.

Following any specific plan: I count calories, eat lots of fresh veggies and fruits, take a spinning class twice a week, tennis twice a week, and meet with a personal trainer every Saturday.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I've gotten further this time than I have in years and years, and though I'm not sure what clicked this time, I just feel more motivated than ever before. Going back to my old habits doesn't even feel like an option now.

Anything else you would like to share with us: If every Taco Bell in the world went out of business, that would be GREAT for me. ;D
