Age:

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!

This is why i chose that goal for myself, i want to go back there and this time do things right and laugh in the faces of poepel who would think of me as fat.
Also i dont want to eb the fat one at my class reunions, i dont want to be described anymore as the fat girl with glasses!

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm doing it with my boyfriend. My doctor mentioned that I should do something before I get diabetes because it runs in my family, and I'll be using a workout program DvD at home, rather than going to the gym.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm really excited to start my weight loss journey with everyone. I lost 20 pounds when I was in high school, so I know it's possible. I'm looking forward to following everyone's progress, including (hopefully) my own!

Age: 24

Children/Ages: Not in the foreseeable future.

Occupation: English teacher to students with varying degrees of enthusiasm, cuteness, and too-cool-to-be-swayed-by-candy-ness.

Pets: A Holland Lop. We don't so much get along as peacefully co-habitate in my tiny apartment.

Hobbies/Interests: Books, teaching, books on teaching, studying Japanese, online window shopping

Height: 5'7"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue/Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: May 14, 2012

Starting Weight: 173

Present Weight: 173

Goal Weight: 140-150 (we'll see once I get closer)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Living in Japan, also known as the land of minimal nutritional information, white rice, care packages from Mom, and excuses for not going out to exercise (everyone already stares at the tall-ish white girl, even when I'm not sweaty and gross!)

Following any specific plan: Cooking at home, giving up on calorie counting, and getting off my lazy backside to exercise more

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I am an adult, living on my own, and I am responsible for me. I no longer have excuses of grad school, stress, and lack of time. Plus, gosh darn it, I really, REALLY want to be able to get down to a small size while I can still get away with wearing the cute juniors-type clothes I never did in high school or college.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Um, I've lurked around here for a long time, but I am really just needing the support system that will motivate me to work harder to lose weight, in terms of both giving and getting that support. どうぞ、よろしくおねがいします! (I'll be in your care!)

Anything else you would like to share with us: I got down to 132 last July, but then my husband came home from deployment and we moved twice in 6 months.
