    Following any specific plan: Flat Belly Diet currently, I really like it, and I'm trying to exercise more. I am also incorporating Holistic Nutrition counseling and eating mostly whole foods and home-cooked meals, and organic/local as much as possible. I'm trying to limit alcohol.

    What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I definitely have a goal in mind. I'm focusing a lot on healthy eating and trying to think about being consistant more than seeing results right now. That being said, I need to lose at least 20 pounds before some very important events in January!
  • First name: Jessica
    Geographical location: Alaska.
    Age: 23 (and 8 months)
    Marital Status: Married. 1 year, 2 months. (Squeal.)

    Occupation: Au Pair. Yeah. Basically, I watch a friend's 11 month old. She wanted to go back to work as a Vet Tech and I needed a change from working for Sam's Club.

    Pets: Two dogs. Seraphim (Sera), a 8 month Labrador x Siberian Husky. (Weighing in at 66 lbs.) And Jedidiah (Jedi), a 7 month German Shepherd x Alaskan Husky. (Weighing in at about 50 lbs. And he's still scrawny.)

    Hobbies/Interests: Writing. The internet. Blogging. My puppies. Coding. RPing. MUSHing. Scrapbooking. Photography. Adoring my muppies. Facebook. My husband. Writing. National Novel Writing Month is coming up and I attribute it to being partly responsible for this. It's all about committing yourself to writing 1,667 words a day for thirty days. Funny. In order to reach 195 by Valentine's Day. I have to lose an average of 1.667 lbs a week. Tell me that isn't a sign. ^^

    Height: 5' 6"

    Eye/Hair Color: Hazel, predominately green. Brown.

    Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: October 13, 2009

    Starting Weight: 230 lbs.
    Present Weight: Um. 230 lbs. Well, 228.8 lbs.
    Goal Weight: 135 lbs. Smack dab in the middle of the suggested weight range for my height and age.

    Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Me. Having the discipline to stick with a work out program. Making myself make the time to take care of me.

    Following any specific plan: Keeping a relative track of caloric intake. At least for the first few months. Primarily so I can get a feel for how many calories I'm actually ingesting with my favorite meals. Working out. A minimum of 30 minutes a day, 3 days a week. Preferably at least 30 minutes a day 5 days a week.

    What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Hard to say. One. I'm starting this time as I gear up to go into NanoWrimo, writing 50,000 in 30 days at an average of 1,667 words a day. Nano, itself, requires a certain level of commitment I might not have otherwise. My husband's due home in 4 months and before he left, I promised myself that I'd make a strong effort to lose weight, eat healthier, and get in shape. It's 8 months later and, aside from the eating healthier part, I haven't made that effort. I don't want to keep breaking promises to myself.

    Anything else you would like to share with us: I love the challenge threads. It makes me commit to something. And coming in every week to update my progress makes me really hold myself accountable. I also love scouring through the pages and pages of success stories and before and after photos. They are beyond inspiring.
  • First name: Kasia

    Geographical location: Colorado

    Age: 24

    Marital Status: Single

    Children/Ages: None

    Occupation: Research Assistant

    Pets: Permanent dog-sitter since I move around too much to have one of my own.

    Hobbies/Interests: I love all sports and have generally been good at them, so I try to do at least one a season. Mostly, I play rugby (correction, have played, since I'm currently out with an injury) and have now picked up racquetball pretty seriously (since I can't play rugby for the time-being). I also love to sail and SCUBA dive, both of which are kind of hard to do at the foot of the Rockies so I'm working on moving somewhere that makes both of those possible. Other than that, I love to read, be a dork, and, I do admit, I love my television.

    Height: 5'4.5'' that half inch is important

    Eye/Hair Color: Greenish-gray eyes (that change color depending on what I'm wearing), light brown hair in the winter, platinum blond in the summer

    Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Today (October 20, 2009)

    Starting Weight: 218

    Present Weight: 218

    Goal Weight: 140

    Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Eating out and drinking with friends. The rugby culture really doesn't help with that. So I'm going to have to have more willpower when I go out because I'm not giving the social aspect up at all.

    Following any specific plan: Counting calories, planning healthy meals, exercising regularly. Nothing specific, but just an all-around life change.

    What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm turning 25 in a few months and I'm having a quarter life crisis. After telling myself for years that I'm going to lose weight and be healthier (and instead packing on even more pounds), I've decided that I can't continue on like this and be happy. So I guess the birthday is the trigger.
