  • First name: Kris

    Geographical location: Philadelphia Suburbs

    Age: 28

    Marital Status: in a long term non-married relationship, going on 4 1/2 years

    Children/Ages: 0 birth children, 1 man-child

    Occupation: Sales agent for a ticketing company and freelance hairstylist

    Pets: 1 cat named Simon

    Hobbies/Interests: Books, writing, more books, finishing my degrees as planned, hair dye (i probably have enough on hand to go any color but green), learning about various religions and philosophical POV, going on adventures and finding things - I am really good at finding things.

    Height: 5' 6"

    Eye/Hair Color: Brown eyes and red hair

    Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: July 8th, 2013 - joined here when my own efforts felt like they weren't enough

    Starting Weight : 193

    Present Weight: 186

    Goal Weight: 140

    Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: everyone I know is into food and it usually is the center of my friends and families social interactions. My boyfriend is also an amazing cook and is particularly good with soul food.

    Following any specific plan: not really, just the idea of eating things closer to the way they naturally occur and if it doesn't occur naturally, I don't eat it. First step is no more processed foods and I'm 75% there. I want try to do more organic but my budget won't allow it. My sister is trying to motivate me with pintrest (still not on that bandwagon) saying that people post amazing things so perhaps I may try it. Support is support.

    What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Looking at it as a health change, in fact the way I want to look isn't really reflective in a number on a scale - I just picked a little higher then my lowest weight for the sake of having a goal weight. I'd be fine with being 150 pounds if I had some serious muscle and was in great athletic shape.

    Anything else you would like to share with us: I know a lot of people but don't have many real friends. I never realized how hard it was to make friends as an adult so I hang out with my little sister, my bf and my cat. The plus side is most of the few friends I do have live in other states so I have free places to stay when I get bitten by travel bug and can afford to bite back.

    Marital Status: Single, Not Looking

    Children/Ages: 0

    Occupation: Loan Coordinator for a local Credit Union

    Hobbies/Interests: Video Games (Animal Crossing, anyone?), Music, Movies/TV, and reading.

    Starting Weight: 215lbs

    Present Weight: 152lbs

    Goal Weight: 120lbs

    Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I have a very emotional and psychological relationship with food. I feel like I can control my happiness with food, and I've found it doesn't work...but that never stopped me from taking it out my sadness, with even more food. I feel like if I get through something difficult, like a bad day at work or an argument with a friend, I deserve a treat. Sometimes it can be shopping but 90% of the time, it's food. I'm still dealing with this, and I think that will be a long time coming.

    Following any specific plan: "free" Ideal Protein plan (no packets or premade food except for shakes)

    What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I started regaining too much weight, and I launched myself into this new one with two other coworkers who are going through the same thing. I think having a partner or two will help me, but I am still looking for more support.

    Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm feeling really good about this new round with myself, and I'd love to make some new friends.
