Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: My mom (she worries about me and constantly tries to get me to eat)

Following any specific plan: Calorie counting with My Fitness Pal

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I joined an online forum

Anything else you would like to share with us: I weighed around 98 pounds, then gained some weight after I broke up with my boyfriend. I made a little bit of progress during winter break and got down to 107, but last night I had a big meal and weighed 110 this morning. I looked online to see if it is possible to gain three pounds in one day and found a forum that reassured me that the three pounds are probably just water weight, and which made me feel a little better. I decided to join the group so that I can ask questions and make posts of my own, and here I am.
My goal weight is to be back under 100, but that is not my only goal. This coming year I want to find body peace so that I can have a positive body image and know that I'm beautiful despite what my weight is.
I am new to this (I just started today), and I am hoping to make some friends!

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: if I can't get it together this time, it may end my relationship with the love of my life and my best friend.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I hate the way I look. Hopefully, 6 months from now I will be happy with my appearance and will be able to maintain any weight loss. I have never been skinny so I don't even know what it feels like to be skinny and attractive. I hope that by the end of this, I will finally know what it's like to bend over and not be stopped by fat rolls.

First name: Clementine

Geographical location: New Orleans, where the past time is drinking and all the food is delicious and unhealthy. (I gained 20lb the first year I moved here, seriously. I call them my Popeye's pounds)

Age: 28

Marital Status: LTR with amazing supportive BF

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Self employed artist

Pets: 1 cat I am obsessed with.

Hobbies/Interests: Art, sewing, music, bike riding, parades, nature, animals, fashion, pop culture, learning, traveling.

Height: 5'2.5"

Starting Date of Weight loss Journey: 1/10/13

Starting Weight: 234

Present Weight: 206

Goal Weight: 140

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss: Sticking with it! Every time I meet a mini goal I am kinda like 'Cool, I can treat myself' and then that becomes like a month long of treating myself and I gain back all my weight. I have probably lost and gained 20 lbs 5 times in the time I've been actively trying to lose. I think I have finally accepted that until I lose all this extra weight that I shouldn't be having 'treats'.

Following any specific plan: So when I started trying to lose weight I really had no idea what I was doing. I bought Zumba and my friend who was a weight loss counselor and had lost 100+lbs herself gave me a loose meal plan/ explained serving sizes to me. I instantly lost 10lbs! I did Zumba 5x a week. After many failures, some weird experiments (anyone heard of the master cleanse?) and a ton of research I've found a routine that works for me. I have been clean eating on and off for the better part of 6 months and it has totally changed my diet for the better, I have also been counting calories and exercising (still zumba) at least 3 times a week. Recently more since I am about to start Jillian Michaels Body Revolution program. I have also sadly, pretty much cut out alcohol completely.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: My resolve and education, I have a real plan, I am also reaching out for support.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: It's very hard to do something 100% for myself, because I've made my life about my kids and my family. But I've made the commitment to start being kinder to myself.

Following any specific plan: mindful eating, more fresh/raw food, no bread. Might go SouthBeach, if I'm feeling ambitious.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm approaching 30 and would like to celebrate it, slim. I'm also hoping to have baby #4 and it'd be nice to be a "thin" pregnant lady, for a change.

Starting Weight: 200

Goal Weight: 130-140, depending on fat/muscle mass

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss: Not being scared of change

Following any specific plan: Counting calories and working out 4-5x/week

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: My main goal is to be healthy as opposed to looking hot in a bikini (of course I want that too). The other times were a lot more about vanity. I'm realizing that this is the body I have forever, and if I take care of it, I can perhaps be mobile and healthy long into old age.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Currently trying to figure out what I want to do in life career-wise, so that's fun.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I think Leah said it best! --> "My main goal is to be healthy as opposed to looking hot in a bikini (of course I want that too). The other times were a lot more about vanity. I'm realizing that this is the body I have forever, and if I take care of it, I can perhaps be mobile and healthy long into old age." Basically trying to implement a lifestyle change rather than "get skinny, quick" mentality I was always in before.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Post-graduate life is lonely but at least has been pretty conducive to me adapting to a healthier lifestyle. Back at school, it was WAY too easy to settle into unhealthy habits.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: January 26th, 2015

Starting Weight: 334

Present Weight: 331.1

Goal Weight: 255

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I have pretty bad arthritis in my left foot/ankle. I have had problems with pain there since I was 11 or 12. Didn't get diagnosed until I was 16. When he diagnosed it, my orthopedist said it was the worst arthritis he had seen in anyone under 65. This has contributed to my weight gain more than anything else and will be hard to deal with, but my doctor has recently started me on a new pain medication.

Following any specific plan: Calorie counting and walking for exercise.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: My new doctor has prescribed me pain medication that should help with the arthritis enough for me to stay on track with exercising every other day.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I am also on an anti-depressant called Remeron, which causes increased appetite and weight gain. No other antidepressant works for me (most actually made things worse) so its just something else I have to deal with.
