Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Original: 8/1/2011, Re-start: 7/30/2012

Starting Weight: 270

Present Weight: 250

Goal Weight: 170 (might change, I don't ever remember being this small)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Sticking to my plan and not eating out of boredom.

Following any specific plan: Watching calories and working out

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I started last year, and I was doing really well. Then I got laid off, got bored, and started back up on my bad habits of bad food and no working out. I was feeling good, but I'm back to feeling not so good. I want to make a lot of changes in my life, this is just step one.

Age: 29 (I age out of this group May 24th)

Marital Status: Single

Children/Ages: I care for my 4 year old nephew, Evan

Occupation: culinary student

Pets: 4 cats, 2 birds, 1 dog

Hobbies/Interests: horseback riding, reading, movies, traveling, baking, cooking, eating

Height: 5'5

Eye/Hair Color: Brown/brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: August 28th

Starting Weight: 308

Present Weight: I'll know after my weigh in on Tuesday

Goal Weight: I don't have a goal weight as much as I do a fitness level. I want to be healthier and stronger and able to enjoy my body.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Culinary school may become difficult for me, but I am going to be as careful as I can be

Following any specific plan: I joined Weight Watchers and I started to work out

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I didn't try to lose weight for quite a few years. My confidence is a wonderful, and a bad thing. I was so confident with who and what I was that I didn't want to change. I realize now that I need to become healthier and more fit.

Following any specific plan: For now, I’m using the website “Calorie Count” to keep track of my food intake.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I suppose I am in a bit of a “quarter-life crisis” right now. I want to get on track- for real. And I hope being here will help!

First name: Ella

Geographical location: ON (aka Canada)

Age: 27

Marital Status: technically single (aka not married), but in a relationship

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Nurse

Pets: Had a bernese, but due to life, my brother now has her. But she's still beautiful and I dog sit often.

Hobbies/Interests: A little bit of a hockey dork (but I'm Canadian after all). Recently got into photography, and love most things active. And am a bit of a nerd.

Height: 5'7

Eye/Hair Color: Hazel and It changes based on mood

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Kinda forever. I've always been trying to simply get into a good routine (which is quite hard for me with shift work).

Starting Weight: 210

Present Weight: 190

Goal Weight: 160-170. I honestly think if I lost more than 20-30 lbs I'd look unhealthy.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Food + shift work. I am active, but I cannot figure out how to eat and do shift work.

Following any specific plan: Not really. I am not one to "diet" as I hate the word. But rather just eat healthy and once in a while enjoy things that may not be so healthy. And exercise.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I honestly want kids in the future and want to be a good role model for them. So want to start living my life as an active/healthy person and happy. Plus this time my bf is doing it with me! So we have goals and I just want to stick with it. That said, again, I will have days here and there when all rules go out the window. I still feel its important to have a day every week (or even meal) that you just don't care about the health and go all for fun! But maybe I'm just off my rocker on that one!

Hobbies/Interests: Animal rescue, writing, reading and playing video games with my husband

Height: 5 feet

Eye/Hair Color: Hazel eyes, plain brown hair

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 9/6/2012 (for the millionth and hopefully last time )

Starting Weight: 185

Present Weight: 185

Goal Weight: 115

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Portion control. I have always loved food and while I never have seen myself as an emotional eater I very well may be one. Also, I get home from work and have no energy so I dont want to take the time to cook a healthy meal, much less go out and exercise. This will definitely have to change.


Following any specific plan: Not really...I have started a jogging program and am going to focus on one step at a time. As of now, no soda or fast food. Then I will move on to other parts of my weight loss journey.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: My age. I will be 27 next year and I have realized most of my married life I have spent hiding behind my fat, insecurities and ugly clothes. Also, my knees are starting to hurt. Wow, that was a wake up call. First time I could barely kneel or get back up I wanted to cry. A short girl should not weigh this much!!!

First name: Katie

Geographical location: America's high five

Age: 27

Marital Status: Married

Children/Ages: None yet but I really want one as soon as I'm done with school

Occupation: Full time trauma nurse and I'm also a master's student working on my degree to become a nurse practitioner

Pets: One adorable coton de Tulear dog

Hobbies/Interests: I love all things artistic (Stupid need for a grown up job with insurance and retirement plans), knitting, sewing, home renovation and decoration, everything vintage, and I'm a total TV junkie too (damn your excellent programming HBO). Then there is all that studying I guess I should be doing...

Height: 5' 2"

Eye/Hair Color: Brown eyes and reddish brown hair

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Forever...9th grade the first time. I suppose this most recent attempt with renewed vigor started around the end of July early august

Starting Weight: 182

Present Weight: 170.5

Goal Weight: I was 130 at one point and was a size six and thought I looked pretty good so I guess somewhere around there. If I ever got any lower that would be fantastic though

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Stupid nightshift. Stupid school. Stupid crazy schedule with irregular sleep. Plus I REALLY like food. I could eat all carbs all day everyday. I could sit and eat a whole baguette or 3 big bowls of cereal no problem. I'm a huge stress eater too which does not help with all the aforementioned life stressors.... Not good... I also really dislike being sweaty and exercise

Following any specific plan: I've been a vegetarian for the past 15 years (which doesn't always equate to healthy and was always carb heavy for me). I'm just calorie counting doing 1200-1400 a day and making sure I get in at a minimum 65 grams of protein daily and less than 200 g of carbs.
I just got a fitbit too and am trying to get my 10000 steps in and 10 flights of stairs (no problem on my work days I blow that away). I'm trying to move a little more on my days off and convince myself to start some other exercise.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I really want to lose the weight so we can start a family soon (my husband is older at 38). I want to be in better shape so I can have the best chance for a successful pregnancy. And I know better, it's really not good for me to be carrying around all this extra weight- I would like to present a picture of good health for my patients.

I'm more of a lurker than a poster but lurking and visiting daily will help keep me accountable and on track so thanks in advance.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Another reason I'm so motivated this time is because my (wonderfully supportive) boyfriend and I will most likely be engaged in the next 6 months, and I will NOT go dress shopping 30 lbs from my goal weight, order it too small and then have to have it let out. So...yeah
