I've been on 3FC for a while now but hadn't posted this yet...

First name: Elise
Geographical location: Massachusetts/Pennsylvania
Age: 20
Marital Status: No time in the near future
Children/Ages: None
Occupation: Student
Pets: None
Hobbies/Interests: Typography, vintage fashion, indie music
Height: 5'2" or 5'3"
Eye/Hair Color: Dark brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 8/15/2009
Starting Weight: 135
Present Weight: 113
Goal Weight: 108 -- but a much more toned 108!

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I have a few of them... depression meds, HUGE sweet tooth, binging when stressed, my parents' way-too-delicious cooking, being friends with young men who wolf down pizzas like no one's business...

Following any specific plan: primarily veg'n, trying not to eat dessert/refined carbs, smaller portions/intuitive eating, exercising instead of eating when I'm bored and antsy

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I've never successfully lost weight in the past (true story) so this is probably my first long-term attempt! I'm serious about trying to find a workout/diet strategy that allows me to maintain a healthy, thin figure.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I have mild PCOS and depression, and really unhealthy fat storage on a small frame, so even though I have a low starting weight and goal then most girls here, I'm definitely facing a lot of the same problems... and could always use more motivation to work out. Best of luck to everyone here!

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Management

Pets: 13-year old black lab who still looks like and is still as hard-headed as a puppy

Hobbies/Interests: movies, reading, cooking/baking

Height: 5'7-8"

Eye/Hair Color: Dark brown/black

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Really back in Oct. 2007, but I've got to buckle down now and do this

Starting Weight: 240

Present Weight: 231

Goal Weight: 180-190 (but would like to be 200 or less by April 30th)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Exercising. I'll find any minute excuse not to. That and my fondness for high fat/high calorie foods and eating way too much of it in one sitting. Shame, because I do like healthy foods.

Following any specific plan: Not really.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Seeing a nutritionist so I can have somebody continually monitoring me rather than just the biannual neuro checkups

Anything else you would like to share with us: I would like to finally lose all this weight to not only gain some self-esteem and learn to be healthy, but I know my neurologist would love to take me off my medication but can't do that in good faith unless I lose some more weight. God only knows that I'd like to not be popping pills anymore and have this illness of mine in check (hopefully it is just the excess weight causing it).
