Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss:binging and sticking with workout routine. sometimes i do well for a time but when i fall off, i fall hard. i have a hard time keeping up with the gym routine because i hate the actual working out but love the feeling afterwards.

Following any specific plan: *trying* to count calories. just signed up for fitday.com yesterday, so we'll see how that goes. going to the gym some. so far only about 2 or 3 times a week. do 4 miles run, 1/2 mile walk, and some free weights.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:I am sick of being so fat and feeling bad about myself. i am always the fattest person in pictures of friends and family. i want to be able to even fit into my fat jeans again. and then ditch them for smaller jeans.

Anything else you would like to share with us: i really want this to be the time! i also am trying to quit smoking.

Hobbies/Interests: Kayaking, Camping, Being outside, Scrapbooking, Music, Card Games..

Height: 5'6"

Eye/Hair Color: Green/Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: This time? a little after Christmas-- December 27 or 28th?

Starting Weight: 252.8

Present Weight: 244

Goal Weight: 98lbs? haha... lets start with 215, that's what I weighed when I met my husband.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: exercise... yuck.

Following any specific plan: Weight Watchers (online-- I have no interest in meetings, that what I come to 3FC for!)

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm not sure? I've never done weight watchers before, so far it seems pretty sustainable. I like that I can still have a beer now and then. I'm taking it slow.. trying to not stress about it.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I've gained and lost the same 50 or so lbs for the majority of my adult life, so dieting for me is no real radical thing-- I feel like I've been dieting since middle school. I spent the last year planning a wedding and unlike most brides who work really hard to lost weight before their wedding, I managed to pack it on. I also live on the beach-- if that's not motovation, I don't know what is.

First name: Irina

Geographical location: Austin Tx! :D

Age: 27

Marital Status: Single

Children/Ages: none.

Occupation: Florist or petal pusher as i like to call it.

Pets: 2 cats my roommate also has 2 cats. they dont get along

Hobbies/Interests: photography is my life, sewing, reading, biking, crafting, gardening

Height: 5'5"

Eye/Hair Color: brown/brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: January 18th 2009

Starting Weight: im not sure. i tossed the scale, it was making me neurotic. But i do know im a size 16 pants. so id say.. 200 ish.

Present Weight: see above :)

Goal Weight: i just want to fit into a single size. maybe an 8?? im guessing about 130 ish.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: accountability. and making sure my size goes down, not up.

Following any specific plan: cardio for 45 min or a little longer, depending on how much energy i have. but no less than 45 min. i have started writing down everything that i eat.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: my age. it scares me a little. although i am still in my 20's i am closer to 30. i listen to my elders, they say its harder to get the weight off the older you get.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Sure!!!

in addition to above, i believe in numerology, so for my age, when reduced, is 9. its the end of a cycle. this year i should complete things or accept them for what they are, embrace them and move on.

i have been struggling for at least a decade with self acceptance and weight loss and it truly exhausting. i am learning to love myself more and more everyday, only its hard when i see extra fluff in the mirror, KNOWING there is a healthier, skinnier me inside who is dying to show her finely tuned curves off.

i struggle with accountability the most, especially when the going gets rough. plus i secretly aspire to wear a bikini on the beach, in my hometown. Wo0t!! :carrot:
