Occupation: College Graduate presently a live-in gf ~

Hobbies/Interests: Travel, Shopping, Movies, TV, Reading, Cooking

Height: 5'1

Eye/Hair Color: Brown Eyes/Black Hair

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 10/05/2009 when I started my lifestyle change but it's been a life time of yoyo dieting

Starting Weight: 191.5

Present Weight: 177

Goal Weight: 135 (eventually 115)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Losing motivation

Following any specific plan: My own plan (exercise daily and recording my calories on a daily basis)

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: In the past I always had the "I have plenty of time" mentality. Now that I'm in my mid twenties I realize I want to live life to the fullest. I don't wanna wait until I'm a lot older and realize how much time I've wasted sitting on my butt watching life pass me by.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Reading and seeing everyone's posts, struggles, problems, successes, joys, transformations is incredibly motivation and inspirational. Whenever I feel down I definitely peruse through the forum and realize I am not alone.

First name: Effie

Geographical location: I'm from New Orleans (go Saints!), but am currently at school in New York state

Age: 18

Marital Status: Single

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Full time college student

Pets: My beautiful and insane dog, Holly, and our moody and often missing cat, Angus

Hobbies/Interests: I love reading books of any kind, going to the movies, baking, museums, the history channel is a personal favorite of mine, just chilling with my friends, French films, traveling is my number one love, though.

Height: 5'4, I think

Eye/Hair Color: Dark brown for both

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: This is kind of difficult to pinpoint, when I left for college I was 196 (that was August 7) and when I next weighed myself (October 15), I was 180. On October 25, I decided that I wanted to do something about my weight, I bought a scale for my dorm room, and began watching what I ate and going to my school's gym. I was 182 then. I guess my starting date would be the 25th, then?

Starting Weight: Technically 196, but could also be 182

Present Weight: I am 178 now, I think

Goal Weight: 112, it is a bit extreme sounding, but I have really small bones. And my doctor has signed off on this goal.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Going to the gym, and bingeing.

Following any specific plan: I just eat healthier and smaller portions, and exercise, exercise, exercise!

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I've got support (here!), and I'm really invested in making a change in myself

Anything else you would like to share with us: Um... I can't think of anything, but if I do, I'll let you know!

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:
I have more motivation to lose weight because the difference I have seen and I love being able to go in the store and pick up something and try it on and it fits. I use to hate shopping because I hated the way everything looked on me.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I just need extra motivation to lose the rest and I recommend watching the biggest loser for motivation because I think it is amazing to see the people on there and the progress they make.

First name: Sarah aka Sari

Geographical location: New Mexico

Age: 24

Marital Status: In a fairly new relationship (4 months).

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Freelance Writer/Editor & Full-Time Student studying to become a Neuropsychologist (...many years of school ahead of me!)

Pets: 2 Cats

Hobbies/Interests: I love curling up with a good book, watching my favorite television shows, going to the movies, playing board games, shopping!, listening to music (and dancing around while singing along), traveling, playing and watching sports, pottery, painting (even though I'm not very good), cooking and baking (even though I'm very messy and not very good), taking walks, and learning. I am also a pretty big football fan...die hard Miami Dolphins fan.

Height: 5'7"

Eye/Hair Color: Greenish/Blonde at the moment, but I tend to change my hair color quite often.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 11/10/2009 -- I've had many "starts" before, but this time I'm really going to do it.

Starting Weight: 266

Present Weight: 266

Goal Weight: 150

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Getting distracted. I've lost weight before in the past, but I always get distracted and end up sabotaging myself. I need to learn to keep my focus. (Focus is a huge issue for me in pretty much every aspect of my life...not just weight loss.)

Following any specific plan: Nope. In the past I never had much luck with specific plans, so this time around I'm just trying to make permanent changes to my lifestyle that I can keep, and make making healthier choices a lifelong habit.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm not trying to do this alone and in secret this time. I'm here...trying to get support from others.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Um, I'm a vegetarian. lol Also...I'm very excited to be here.

Just noticed this thread!

First name: Lauren

Geographical location: Philadelphia

Age: 21

Marital Status: So very single

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Full time student graduating with a Communications degree in May.

Pets: None while at school but 2 cats & a dog at home.

Hobbies/Interests: Shopping, swimming, teaching, music, going to concerts, hanging out with friends, curling up with a good book, watching any movie I can get my hands on....really.

Height: 5'8"

Eye/Hair Color: Green / Dark Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 9/18/2009

Starting Weight: 227

Present Weight: 202

Goal Weight: 160 (If I can lose more, great but I'd like to get down to 160 first)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Keeping with it. I didn't get the nickname LazyBlazy for nothing. If I can find the easy way out of something, I take it. I've learned through this experience that there is no easy way out of weight loss if you really want to see results. Also, I'm not very patient when it comes to the scale, so I easily get discouraged when I have those weeks that I don't see big numbers.

Following any specific plan: Not so much, just keeping track of the food I eat and working out 6 times a week.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: First of all, I've only really tried to lose the weight once before, as I was in denial and actually thought I was healthy at my weight! But last time I worked out but I starved myself in the process. Then I used my work outs as an excuse to binge and then feel guilty about it and repeat the process. I've also told people this time around, and figured out that I've got to keep myself accountable or I start to slip and look for any little excuse to eat the junk food that I've loved in the past.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Really happy that I've found this site and I hope to stay on it throughout my journey.
