  • First name: Steph

    Geographical location: North Carolina

    Age: 23

    Marital Status: World's best boyfriend. Never met a more supportive, more reasonable, more loyal and caring man in my life; never happier.

    Children/Ages: None.

    Occupation: Er, sort of between jobs. I worked for the past year as a resident nightclub DJ, but the owners recently decided to close the club for renovations with no word on when they're planning to re-open. They offered to re-hire me when they open again, but I think it's time to move along to a day job and pick and choose when and where I want to play, instead of spending EVERY weekend night working.

    Pets: My kitty, Zarathustra.

    Hobbies/Interests: DJing, reading, clubbing, playing video games on the PS2/DS/Steam for Mac.

    Height: 5'4".

    Eye/Hair Color: Brown/brown.

    Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: July 1, 2011.

    Starting Weight: 178.6 lbs.

    Present Weight: Same.

    Goal Weight: 122 lbs.

    Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss: I'm staying with my folks for a few weeks as I wait for my new lease to begin. Whenever I stay with my parents, I'm surrounded by very poor, impulsive eaters. I'm battling this by making dinner for my family every night and trying to get a few vegetables into them. ;p

    Following any specific plan: Counting calories using LiveStrong's Daily Plate; using a beginner's program for Olympic race walking for 5x weekly exercise.

    What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm older, wiser, and a bit less frantic. I'm ready to put patience and time into my health, rather than wanting to immediately drop pounds.

    Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm way into healthy recipes with lots of veggies and ESPECIALLY crock pot cooking. I'm trying to learn to eat more whole foods. I'm also very interested in eating healthily on a budget--if anyone has a blog (or a recommendation for a blog), I'd love to read it!

    Starting Weight: 220

    Present Weight:203.4

    Goal Weight: 132

    Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Lack of enthusiasm for working out.

    Following any specific plan: Counting calorie intake & wearing a bodybug.

    What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm more focused, I have more information and better tools.

    Anything else you would like to share with us: I was a chubby kid, became a slightly overweight teenager when I walked 20 or so minutes to school and back everyday. When I moved to another house, I had to the bus instead and lost contact with my best friends. That's when I started to gain weight very quickly. My BMI reached obese class II last year and was very close to class III this year. That's when I knew I couldn't pretend everything was ok anymore - I was wearing the largest size available in afordable stores. I love to choose clothes and try them on, but I could only find a couple that fit and that made me very sad and frustated.
    I am currently obese class I, and I want to have a normal 23 BMI by the end of this year. I know I can do it, and I will.

    What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm the heaviest I've ever been and I can't stand it anymore.

    Anything else you would like to share with us: I have a wonderful, loving boyfriend that thinks I'm beautiful and sexy but I can hardly look at myself in the mirror anymore~! I feel heavy all of the time and can't even really fit into my work pants that are a size 16. It's embarrassing and I hate it.

    My track record is that I'm extreme. Either I'm writing everything I eat down in a journal and being very strict, or eating whatever I want and however much I want of it. My new approach is to be more moderate!
  • First name: Holly

    Geographical location: Frome in Somerset England

    Age: 22

    Marital Status: Single but dating of the internet variety

    Children/Ages: 0 thankfully, I want to enjoy being 22 and fancy free for a while

    Height: 5'9"

    Eye/Hair Color: dark blue eyes, blonde hair

    Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: officially in 2009 some when but I've fallen off the wagon quite a few times I've lost track of the actual date.

    Starting Weight: 246 this was when I weighed in at weight watchers in 2009

    Present Weight: 217 (I gained and re-lost about 24lbs since WW)

    Goal Weight: 160lbs but I might alter it when I reach goal

    Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: boredom eating, and stopping my wine habit. Inevitably wine leads to major munchies for me, and I binge on all things related to carbs, cheese, pastry, potato and chocolate

    Following any specific plan: low carb/low calorie with plenty of exercise

    What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I can't spend another summer hot, sweaty in jeans and long sleeved shirts, its way to uncomfortable. I also have a few weddings coming up and I don't want to get dumped for being over weight ever again. All the things I want to do like climbing mt Kilimanjaro, traveling in hot countries etc would go a lot better if I shifted the excess weight.

    Anything else you would like to share with us: Just that I love this site and I am very grateful for the support and positive comments and advice from all the amazing members. Thank you for inventing 3FC

    Following any specific plan: Just healthy eating (whole grains, low sugar/fat/cal, high protein, lots of water, etc.) and cardio and strength training 6 days/week

    What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Now I feel like it's now or never. In the past, I always felt I had more time, and I would lose the weight "eventually." But in August I will start a 2 year grad program that will probably turn into a total of 6 years before I earn my Ph.D. I need to get into healthy habits NOW before my research consumes me or else I will be like this for the next six years and maybe longer.
