Eye/Hair Color:brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey:1-16-17

Starting Weight:277

Present Weight:280

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss:Not eating out so much. We have a very busy schedule, my kids and husband play sports and we are busy with them pretty much 7 days a week. As soon as I'm done working is normally straight to practice or a game. Then by the time we are done it's almost bed time. So we normally are eating out a lot. Also I have horror will power, I give into my cravings. Not to mention I have a HUGE sweet tooth!

Following any specific plan:Not really, just trying to make better choices and count my calories. I also want to workout at least 5 days a week.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:I'm done having babies. I have no more excuses.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: January 22 2017

Starting Weight: 190.4lbs

Present Weight: 178.9lbs

Goal Weight: 140lbs

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: It's hard for me to pass up on junk when it's around and my boyfriend is a type one diabetic so we always have sugary foods and juice, He's also on the pump so he doesnt have to watch what he eats(he still should, but that's not happening anytime soon) so he's always eating junk food and the most frustrating part is he never gains weight! Possibly because of his height(6'7") but still! lol

Following any specific plan: Going to the gym Mon, Wed, and Fri 6am-7am

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Every other time I've tried to start working out I was under 150lbs so I was never very motivated to actually change anything.. I think seeing myself at 190lbs really made me realize I have to do something about it

Anything else you would like to share with us: Not at the moment.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: not cheating, my friends like to go out for dinner every week and they like fatty foods, it's hard to watch them eat pizza or chinese food while I eat salad or chicken breast.

Present Weight: 210

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: right now it's lack of motivation. I'm pretty good at losing weight, when I'm in the right mindset. Now I'm not, but I'm very worried about my weight, and know that I should be losing weight... I just don't really feel like it...

Following any specific plan: calorie counting, preparing meals at home

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I've always done it alone. Now I feel I really want a support network

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm usually more upbeat. Feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment...

Starting Weight: 242

Present Weight: 238

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Eating regularly, being active on a daily basis, increase my emotional intelligence to prevent binge eating.

Following any specific plan: I'm broke but decided to get a trainer. I respond well when other people are expecting things from me. I lift with her 2 days a week. Legs on Tuesdays and chest/back on Thursdays. I do yoga/bodyflow two times a week. I try to get 20-30 min of extra movement each day. Meal plan requires that I meal prep and eat most of my food before 4pm. Bonus, I get to eat a surprising amount of food!

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: It is a lifestyle change. I am trying to do a little in all places of my health.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm feeling excited to start my adventure in the midst of people in the same situation as me!

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 01/Feb/17

Starting Weight: 175.5lbs

Present Weight: 143.5 lbs

Goal Weight: 110lbs

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Dealing with emotional eating. Whether it's to celebrate something great, or to fill some sort of void, I have used food for far too long as a way of managing my emotions. I want to start viewing food as just a fuel for my body, but find it difficult to do so.

Following any specific plan: Maintaining a calorie deficit by logging everything I consume on My Fitness Pal. This also involves weighing and measuring everything I consume. I plan to start running and hope to run my first 10k in 12 months time.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have managed to stick to it much longer as it is more of a change in lifestyle than a diet. If I seriously want a takeaway pizza and absolutely nothing else will do - I'll have it! The difference is I'm not having it EVERY time I want it and I adjust my consumption to fit treats in.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I used to be very slim until I was around 20 when I suffered a traumatic bereavement. My emotional eating got out of control as I used food to deal with my grief. I've got to a stage where I can't go on like that anymore and undersand being healthy will bring me more hapiness in the long run.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: April 18, 2017

Starting Weight: 204 ish

Present Weight: 196

Goal Weight: 105-110

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss: Getting overwhelmed and just giving up

Following any specific plan: I am not following an particular plan per say but am following certain guidelines. I am calorie counting, sticking to moderate-low carbohydrate, and limiting dairy consumption

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I am actually sticking to it. I also have created a calendar book with customized motivational phrases at the top of each month to help me push through. I am going on a trip with my daughter in September and I am using that as a goal to hit.

Anything else you would like to share with us:I am clarifying that although I stated that September was my goal date, I'm not looking to hit a certain weight or size by than. I am just looking to continue eating healthy and workout until this period of time. I want to feel good and not get so tired. I plan on continuing my journey after September but realized a concrete date is something I need.

Height: 6’0”

Eye/Hair Color: Blue/strawberry blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 5/23/17

Starting Weight: 290

Present Weight: 279

Goal Weight: 175

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Emotional/boredom binge eating and accountability

Following any specific plan: No added sugar, no bread, more whole foods and logging everything with Fitbit and a MyFitnessPal. To start C25K after 3 weeks of consistently meeting my step goal.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: This is the first time that I won't have the stress of school as a factor (although I am sure there will be other stressors to take its place). This time around I feel I have more support and a more clearly defined plan. Also, joining and participating in the 3FC community adds a level of accountability I haven’t had in the past (still working on being accountable to myself).

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Motivation and finding time. Right now I'm off for the summer and am using all of my extra time to include more exercise and clean-cooking in my daily routine, but its difficult to keep up when I'm working and going to classes during the school year.

Following any specific plan: PIIT28

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have SO much time to spend focusing on it!

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm looking for an accountability partner to check in with once per week to reflect on any daily successes and failures. If you're interested in connecting, please let me know!
