hi
 
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.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I recently got engaged, and want to look absolutely perfect in my dress~! I also don't want to be fat anymore, because I'd like to have a child.
