What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I want to date, but have put it off because I'm afraid I will settle for less than what I deserve because of my confidence which is a result of my weight.

Children/Ages: not yet

Occupation: full-time grad student

Pets: 1 cat

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, photography, wine tasting, boating, love water sports

Height: 5'5

Eye/Hair Color: B/B

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Yikes... Probably 09/2009 when I finally left my college town for grad school

Starting Weight: I would say my highest was in the high 160's after a study-abroad semester but I don't know for sure... maybe a tight size 10 or a size 12 US

Present Weight: 145

Goal Weight: Secretly 125 but once I get to 135 I'll be quite happy

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Love to go out, cook, drink beer, eat out (live in a young-people kind of city); Kind of hate the gym... :dizzy:

Following any specific plan: Not calorie counting since I'm SO sick of it and it just makes me think of food 24 hrs/day... I guess eating CLEAN and watching portions... trying to control my beer consumption... getting my butt to the gym to A/L do 30mins of cardio and doing strength training at home... trying to walk everywhere and take in the beautiful lakes by where I live (ie: swim/move in them)

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm over excuses... It's been almost 2 years since I left college, which was my main excuse and I don't feel like being uncomfortable anymore! Would love to feel happy and healthy for the last half of my 20s!

Children/Ages: one boy 13 months

Occupation: Grad Student

Pets: Tobi - Bull mastiff (huge)

Hobbies/Interests: reading, cooking, sleep!

Height: 5'4

Eye/Hair Color: hazel/dark brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: June 23, 2011

Starting Weight: 316

Present Weight: 312 (ish)

Goal Weight: 210

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I eat when I am bored/happy/sad/tired/etc and since I have become a stay at home mom, there is nothing keeping me from the kitchen/refridgerator

Following any specific plan: nope, trying to get healthy and cut back on red meats and carbs

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have a reason to want to be more healthy now, I want to be able to run around with my son and teach him all of the sports that mommy used to play.

Anything else you would like to share with us:
I've had a few inquiries about my goal of 210, and I am not sure at this point if that is my long term goal, but it is definately a mid-term goal. The last time I remember being happy with my body, I was close to 210, so I figure once I get there, I can decide if I want to keep going lower.
