Height: 5'1

Default

First name: Christa

Geographical location: Colorado, transplanted from Joplin, MO

Age: 23

Marital Status: Engaged to and living with my Soul Mate!

Children/Ages: None yet, but sort of desperately wanted in the future.

Occupation: Unemployed and Disabled because of reasons. In the future I want to be a child psychologist.

Pets: The best cat ever: a 7-year old calico/tabby known as Sweet Pea who has been through a lot with me, two cats who technically belong to my fiance and his mother, Boo and Fuzzy (they have real names, but they don't know them), a beautiful lazy and lovable black boy cat called Binx who drools compulsively and lives with my mom in Missouri, and a talkative not-big blonde mutt dog with a pot-belly and kind of amazing eyebrows and mustache named Gunner who also lives in Missouri with my mom.

Hobbies/Interests: reading (especially fantasy), drawing, playing video games (especially RPGs) and I'm trying to make exercising into a hobby, AKA something I enjoy

Height: 5'1 or 5-flat depending on who's measuring me

Eye/Hair Color: my eyes are blue-green and change colors with my mood, lighting, clothing, etc. My hair is blondish.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: On and off for a few years. Officially restarting as of today: Saturday, March 22, 2014

Starting Weight: 320+

Present Weight: 280

Goal Weight: 180, ultimate 160

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: chronic pain, stress eating, losing motivation

Following any specific plan: Not really, but I'm trying to cut sugar completely. I've identified sugar as a big freaking problem and also the possible pre-diabetic diagnosis scares the heck out of me.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Unlike all the other times, I'm really invested this time. My heath problems scare me, and I don't see a good future if I don't change. And this time, part of my motivation is to look on the outside the way I feel inside.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm a Christian, but don't let that scare you off. I roll with all kinds. My sister is Pagan, I'm friends with a boatload of atheists, and one of my best friends was a Satanist at one point. XD
I am an independent Libertarian (officially registered as a Republican) politically, I am not a feminist I identify as an Egalitarian, I'm not politically correct, I support gun rights, etc.....In short, most of my opinions run in opposition to the Mainstream. But I promise it doesn't matter! I get along with everyone, almost no matter what. I was raised to not judge and I don't! The worst you'll get from me is agreeing to disagree!
Also, I've been posting on forum websites for over a decade, and sometimes I make REALLY long posts....hope that doesn't bother anyone. I also have a lot of emotional baggage and sometimes that creeps into my posts....I apologize in advance. -bows-

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Gaining/losing cycle. I've lost a bit of weight before, but I've gained it back due to stress and just not caring.

Following any specific plan: Tracking my food, Running three times a week, Drinking lots of tea. Trying to walk to my job once summer hits. Will be joining a gym or trying to find a running buddy.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I finally know how to manage the stresses of grad school without eating. I'm not obsessing about my weight loss going one way--I'm just trying to make more conscientious choices about what I'm eating and what I'm doing without depriving myself of the good stuff.

Starting Weight: 223.5

Present Weight: 209

Goal Weight: 140

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Finding time to exercise, not comfort eating due to stress (working 7 days a week and being tired all the time makes it hard!)

Following any specific plan: Eat less, eat better, exercise more. I also use a diet plate.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: motivated, support from my gorgeous husband (we got married in August 2013) and a more positive attitude.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I really need the support of others too to stop me giving up, but also to stop me boring my husband to death with constant diet and weight loss talk. He is actually very slim/muscular so it must be hard for him to listen to me all the time.

First name:Katie

Geographical location: DC Metro Area, US

Age:27

Marital Status: Engaged as of Feb 2014!

Children/Ages: N/A- But soon to have an 8 year old step daughter

Occupation: Residential Property Manager

Pets: 2 of the awesomest cats ever alive

Hobbies/Interests: documentaries, traveling, music, outdoor activities

Height: 5'2

Eye/Hair Color: Hazel/Blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Late February 2014

Starting Weight: 204 (yikes)

Present Weight: 190.2

Goal Weight: 135 would be amazing.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I am your classic yo-yo'er. My weight has been up and down quite drastically my whole life. It's hard to stay on track when your partner can eat/drink what ever he wants in front of you!!!

Following any specific plan: 1,200 calorie a day intake goal with one cheat day per week. Calorie counter has helped me stay accountable even on my bad days.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have never been over 180 before in life and somehow lost control and reached 204!!!???? I do not want to get married and be self conscious about my wedding photos. I avoid the camera as much as possible these days. Health is a big motivator as well. I would be so disappointed in myself if I was pre-diabetic and if I don't stick to a permanent change now, diabetes is a very real possibility.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I am thankful for forums like this to keep me motivated and know that I'm not alone. I feel like everyone else around me is so thin and I'll always be known as the chubby girl.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Knowing that it takes time to lose weight.

Following any specific plan: Calorie counting (1200 per day) and exercising 5 days a week.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm losing weight after having gained it during my pregnancy.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm 4 weeks post partum. As I mentioned earlier, I gave birth to a stillborn daughter in March. I was 38 weeks pregnant. The cause could not be determined. My husband and I trust that God had more important things for her to do in Heaven. Though it may seem strange, our faith has been strengthened since the loss of our daughter.

Age: I can still legally say I'm in my 20's

Marital Status: married

Children/Ages: a son, 6

Occupation: graphic designer (although I am currently on extended leave until 2015)

Pets: a (rescued) black shepherd, Link, the sweetest and kindest dog ever!

Hobbies/Interests: crafting, sewing, surfing, makeup, shoes, ~glitter~

Height: 5'3

Eye/Hair Color: green/blonde (though I just recently went dark red)

Starting Date of Weight Loss Journey: April 24, 2014. It was a Wednesday - I know because for three weeks prior, I kept saying "next Sunday... Next Monday..." And on Wednesday I woke up and said, you know what? It's now or never.

Starting Weight: 195

Present Weight: 185.0

Goal Weight: 115

Biggest Hurdle to Overcome in Weightloss: eating - I typically eat only one meal (dinner) and will not stop what I'm doing to make or eat something when I am hungry, which means I eat nearly all of my calories at dinner and right before bed.

Also, my husband is deployed and a medic who tends to fret over the smallest bruises, so I haven't told him what's going on. It's very hard not having his support, but he has other things he needs to focus on.

Following any specific plan: just counting calories and lots of cardio for now. I'll adjust later as necessary.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts in the past: I've never tried losing weight in the past, so this is uncharted territory for me!

Anything else you would like to share with us: my husband is deployed until the end of November, and I'd really like to lose most of this weight by then. Our son is also struggling with being underweight/classified as FTT, so he needs a very different diet and I'm trying hard to make sure we both get what we need.
