Starting Weight: 127

Present Weight: 127

Goal Weight: 105

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: it takes me about a month of diet and exercise to lose a single pound which can be really disheartening.usually after a month of being really motivated and putting in lots of hard work, i give up. i have problems with overeating/emotional eating.

Following any specific plan: i started the fat smash diet on october 19, 2009.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: i really really want this. i'm sick of being uncomfortable in my own skin.and i think what's truly different is that i've joined 3fc! i've been on here and posting (mainly in featherweights and fat smash forum) for a couple weeks and it's really helped to keep me on track more than i ever thought it would.

Anything else you would like to share with us: i'm really excited to be here and meet you all!

Starting Weight: 236

Present Weight: 236

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Finding the time to workout (and the energy), saying NO to binge eating, finding the money for healthy food, and much needed workout clothes, shoes, etc.

Following any specific plan: I'm going to start the Couch to 5 K program, and watch my calorie intake.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I don't think I've ever formally committed to losing weight. In the past it's just been a general sort of, "I weigh too much, I should eat less and exercise more." It was not nearly as goal oriented.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Wish me luck! I'm awfully nervous about this.

Height: 5'5

Eye/Hair Color: Eye(Brown) Hair (naturally: brown current: highlighted)

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: I officially began doing somethign about my weight Aug of 2009

Starting Weight: 202

Present Weight: 193

Goal Weight: 140

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Making "Me Time" - Pregnancy weight (and hating I let myself fall to this point) - Healing from "tough times"

Following any specific plan: I see a "diet doctor". I know people have mixed feelings, but it worked for me before I got pregnant and I was able to maintain after I stopped seeing him. I also do cardio (3 rotations). I am hoping to eventually feel comfortable with weights.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: *I lost 50 pounds and felt and looked great about 3-4 years ago! Then I had my son, and had some difficulties (definately more than one) happen financially, relationships, emotional. I am now in counselign and educating myself on "Being aware of my actions" and then "Finding out why I do what I do" and "then taking ownership and my life back". I am tired of always doing for others, and really I am unhappy and not helping myself. I want my husband to "look at me that way" again and I don't want my son to have a "fat mom". I have always wanted to be thinner and like what I see physically in the mirror, who I want to see. I know this seems "shallow" and that's what I think I have never truly been honest with myself, but excuses and lies get you no where...so here's to honesty and ME!

Anything else you would like to share with us: I have always been afraid to admit that I want to look good! and be thin! because I am afriad it won't happen and that would be the biggest disappointment and HURT!!! So now .... today .... I am admitting to others, and embracing the fear (because I'm terrified!!!) ... and I have to do this ... FOR ME!

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: eating enough vegtables and eating at work

Starting Weight: (my least favorite question) 198

Present Weight: 198

Goal Weight: Hmm unrealistically 125 but realistically 150

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: PORTION CONTROL. Ahh I am horrid with my portion sizes. I either eat too much or too little. At least my favorite foods are healthy ones but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing

Following any specific plan: I know what my problem is so its about balancing out the portion sizes and eating throughout the day and not all towards the evening. Well that and staying as active as possible.

Children/Ages: None! Though I work with so many kids that sometimes I feel like I have at least 20.

Occupation: Full time student of biology/pre-occupational therapy, part time therapy provider for developmentally disabled youth, and part time campus cafeteria worker!

Pets: Tango (my fishy), and all my little potted plants that attempt to survive the winter in my bedroom.

Hobbies/Interests: Playing, Pranking, Belly dancing, Shooting (guns and archery!), Hiking, Guitar, Singing, Writing, Praisin' the Lord!

Height: 5'6"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue/Blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: August 2009

Starting Weight: 220 this time (as of August), but 250 as of a couple years ago.

Present Weight: 199

Goal Weight: 135 (I probably haven't weighed this much since I was in middle school)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Late nights studying, schedule full of work and school, knee pain.

Following any specific plan: I'm trying to exercise at least 30-60 minutes 5x a week, and eat more veggies as opposed to breads and pastas.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Well, I never really tried in the past. I got down to this weight before but it was because I was really sick and couldn't eat without puking for about 2 months, so it all came right back when I recovered. I have been steadily losing weight since about the 250lb range when I started college, but it wasn't really a conscious effort... most likely just walking to classes, and being a biology major we have to take a lot of hikes in the woods for lab. Anyway, I want it to come off faster than a few pounds a year this time. I guess I did some research, and joined this forum for some support.

Anything else you would like to share with us: We're all in the 20-somethings! We have a lot of life before us and we may as well start now with new healthy lifestyles. I wish I would have known everything I do now when I was even younger. Blessings to everyone! I hope you can all reach your goals!
