Starting Weight: 152

Present Weight: 150.4

Goal Weight: 120

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightless: Binge eating when stressed and maintaining control when my husband is eating junk food I can't have...

Following any specific plan: Eat 1200 calories, take vitamins, get plenty of fiber, drink 40 ounces of water a day, and remove unnecessary items from my diet that are just taking up calories I could use for food. Jog 3-4 times a week, particularly on days I don't work since I also go to school and so off days are when I'll have more energy and motivation.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I feel more stable emotionally. I'm identifying triggers for my behavior and working on removing them entirely.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Feb. 5, 2016

Starting Weight: 218

Present Weight: 189

Goal Weight: 150 (to begin with -- may continue past that.)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Tendency to comfort eat during high-stress days.

Following any specific plan: Counting calories (1300-1800 per day) with tracking app and cardio routine (4-5 times per week, 25 minutes sessions).

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: My chronic depression held me back from sustained weight loss -- I would lose weight, have another period of depression, and gain everything back. This last year I finally got my depression treated and it is now under control. Without that constant up-and-down cycle, sustaining a good nutrition and exercise plan has been so much easier. I'm just hoping to keep it up! (29 pounds lost and 40 pounds to go!)

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm looking forward to joining in the conversations on this forum. Everyone is so lovely and encouraging. Let's lose that weight!
