First name: Vanessa

Geographical location: Southwest

Age: 27

Marital Status: In a relationship

Children/Ages: an 8 month old Yorkie named Gidget.

Occupation: Inventory Control

Pets: Gidget.

Hobbies/Interests: Cooking, reading, reality TV, driving range, hanging out with friends.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Snacking. I love snacking and candy.

Following any specific plan: My friend is with Beach Body and he wrote me up a meal plan, but I was successful on LAWL and am going to start following that more now that I''m motivated and have already started the process.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have a better attitude towards it and I have incentives lined up (boyfriend is taking me to Hawaii when I feel ready to wear a swimsuit).

Anything else you would like to share with us: It definitely helps to have someone who loves you and supports you no matter what you choose, but wants you to be happy and always encourages you without putting you down. I have a great support group who don't get mad when I slip, but encourage me when I feel like I'm wasting my time.

Starting Weight: 275

Present Weight: 266

Goal Weight: 150-170

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss: There are defiantly several I need to face and over come. The biggest of which is fear of failure. The second is emotional eating. The third is just sticking with it for long enough to make it to my target. I need to learn portion control, like WOAH.

Following any specific plan: Nope. Just being active and eating healthy. Maybe I should follow a plan but I donít really have the money or time to join WW or any of the others. A lot of others require cooking, which I am never home to do.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I donít just want to lose weight, I want to create a new life for myself. One in which I am comfortable in my own skin and not ashamed of being overweight.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I am not sure how to motivate myself. Currently, trying to lose weight doesnít feel real to me. I am exercising and watching what I eat butÖitís still new. I think once I hit 250, I will start to believe it is happening.

ILRPinkGirl 04-20-2011 10:39 AM

First name: Ashley

Geographical location: Connecticut

Age: 25

Marital Status: Single

Children/Ages: 0

Occupation: Human Resources

Pets: I can't even keep a goldfish alive, lol

Hobbies/Interests: piano, tennis, reading

Height: 5'6

Eye/Hair Color: blue/blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 4/13/2011

Starting Weight: 250

Present Weight: 242

Goal Weight: 165 is my ultimate goal weight, but have some current mini-goals too! 229 will be the lowest weight I've seen in a good three years, and of course entering One-derland is a big goal!

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: not falling off the wagon completely...I tend to just binge eat the moment I make a mistake, rather than accepting that I made a mistake and moving forward with being healthy

Following any specific plan: I'm doing some weird cross between South Beach and Weight Watchers

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I am focusing on small goals rather than the end-state, because that usually just overwhelms and scares me! And usually I hide that I'm dieting like it's an embarrassing secret, whereas this time I'm obviously seeking the help of this group, and also have a good friend who is willing to pick up a healthier lifestyle so we can keep each other motivated!

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm headed back to school for my Master's degree in the fall, and really want to be as confident as possible by that time! Looking forward to speaking with many of you!
