First name:
Maggie

Geographical location:
Chicago

Age:
20

Marital Status:
Single

Children/Ages:
None

Occupation:
Student

Pets:
I have a little papillion, Cooper, who is FULL of energy!

Hobbies/Interests:
I love all things fashion... girls in my dorm call my room "the store" because I have racks of clothing all around the room (where normal people would have desks, chairs, futons, etc). I also love going for long walks. I'll often disappear to walk on the back path for up to four hours at a time.

Height:
5'11

Eye/Hair Color:
Blue-Green/Blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey:
Weightloss really started August 2011 (I lost 40 pounds, but put 15 back on). Now I'm losing 15 pounds, and I suppose I am starting today!

Starting Weight:
155

Present Weight:
155

Goal Weight:
140 (135)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss:
My love of binging in front of the TV

Following any specific plan:
Eating 1200-1500 calories per day and eventually working my way up to 90 minutes cardio per day

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:
I'm taking care of myself. In the past I'd eat around 600 calories a day. Yeah, I lost weight fast, but I was miserable and put it back on (and more)
just as fast. I also have a support system this time (all of you!), which I haven't had before because the people around me are not interested in weightloss.

Anything else you would like to share with us:
I thought this year was a total failure, seeing as a put on fifteen pounds, but I realized I grew a lot as a person. I am proud of who I am - now I just want my outsides to show that. I never let myself be proud before, thinking that if I started loving myself I would stop losing weight. This site is really inspiring and will help me stick to my goals!

Eye/Hair Color: Brown / Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: April 25, 2012

Starting Weight: 211.05

Present Weight: 198.9

Goal Weight: 150

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Weekend eating!!! (And beer)

Following any specific plan: Nothing too specific. I am eating EXTREMELY healthy!! I walk every lunch break, try to get in evening walks with my little one at home when we have the time and I work out almost every night in my apartment's gym. Seems to be working well so far.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I am motivated this time!!! I've always said I will do it and failed!! I am tired of being bigger than all my friends and not being comfortable in everything I wear. If I dont lost it now, I will regret it when its too late!!

Anything else you would like to share with us: I am very grateful for the motivation and knowledge I have gained from you wonderful people in the short time I have been here so far! Looking forward to a life long journey here!!

First name: Rachel, some call me Rae

Geographical location: indianapolis

Age: 23

Marital Status: Single dating is hard

Children/Ages: N/A

Occupation: student studying communication technology/sound engineering

Pets: none

Hobbies/Interests: any thing tech like, classical music geek, sci fi nerd, traveling, anything arty

Height: 5"4

Eye/Hair Color: blue green/ redish

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Feb 13 2012

Starting Weight: 242 although it may have been higher at times

Present Weight: 211

Goal Weight: 150ish maybe 140 ultimately but don't want to make it too difficult of a goal.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I HATE VEGETABLES!!! with a passion. I find them so boring and such a chore to eat. I think i find the restriction of eating certain things the hardest thing for me in general.

Following any specific plan: Well for me no foods are permanently off limits except for soda ( diet and non diet), I limit my portions but nothing else is off limits. I try to avoid eating as much processed food, or fast food. sometimes I slip up. But I kick butt at the gym. I go every day for at least an hour and make sure I burn 500 -700 calories each time. my weight loss is 80% exercise and 20% diet.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Well I never really made a conscious decision to get serious about weight loss. Any other small attempts to lose weight were based on what others thought of me. This time I did this for my self. I was sick of feeling bad and looking bad. I had lied to myself for years saying there was no way I could lose weight, my genes are against me, blah blah blah, I just made the decision and now I'm determined to succeed.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I wanna be smoking hot , that is all.
