sarahmichele 09-28-2012 05:48 PM

First name: Sarah

Geographical location: Oregon!

Age: 22

Marital Status: In a relationship

Children/Ages: none

Occupation: Front desk rep.

Pets: None here, but 2 dogs at my moms :)

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, writing, traveling. I'm still trying to figure out what other hobbies I have. I'm interested in music, and I love to help people.

Height: 5"7

Eye/Hair Color: Brown hair, hazel eyes.

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: THIS time, lets call it September 7th.

Starting Weight: 241.1

Present Weight: 239.4

Goal Weight: 140, but we'll see as the weight starts coming off.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I have always self diagnosed myself with what I like to call partnered eating. I am WAY more likely to overeat or eat a lot if I am with someone else. For example, when my boyfriend is at work on the weekend I'm never hungry (while he's gone). But it's like the second he gets home my brain starts in with "okay, what are we going to eat". I gained a majority of my weight while my best friend was pregnant. We lived together and when she ate, I ate. We were partners in "crime" if you will. I guess that is one of my biggest hurdles, among many.

Following any specific plan: I (try to) eat clean, and count calories on myfitnesspal

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I am READY. I'm for real this time. I have been trying to lose weight for the last 6 years, and have struggled immensely with my efforts to do so. I finally had an enough is enough moment while playing with my niece one day and I just decided it was stupid of me not to get into shape.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I hope to find motivation and support from these forms. I struggle daily as I try to not make food a priority. I am trying to live by "eat to live". If anyone would like to add me on myfitnesspal please do so, my username is sarahmichelexo over there as well.

Look forward to meeting you all!!

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Not listening to my boyfriend, who is very sweet and tells me daily he loves me for who I am, and that I'm beautiful as I am - but I want to lose weight for ME, so I can also love myself and feel beautiful.

Following any specific plan: Get support here, as that is what I believe I've been missing in the past.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: The support I feel I may now receive.

Anything else you would like to share with us: That I think you are all amazing for making the decision to change your life (because although it's just a bit of extra weight, it makes a difference in ways most of us don't understand).

Getting off my butt and finding time to do it.

Nothing yet, but looking into MRC.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:
I have a baby now; so getting in exercise time is my biggest hold back.

Anything else you would like to share with us:
[B]At 17 years old I weighed 245 pounds and became extremely disgusted with the way I looked. I spent 2 1/2 months doing killer exerciser and binge eating when I actually at After 73 days- I weighed 172. I then at 18 began training to become an Air Force SERE and spent 8 weeks in rigorous PRE-BASIC Training. At the end I weighed 160 and I had kept it off for 3 years when I got pregnant with my daughter. I was doing very well keeping a healthy weight during my pregnancy when my mom was diagnosed with "out of control polyp" and had to have surgery to remove it then a colostomy. I was in my second trimester and "stress ate" for the next month. Five weeks after her surgery we got the results back, and she was diagnosed with stage 4-B Colon Cancer at the age of 42. With more stress eating and no exercising, by the time I delivered my baby, I weighed 263 pounds. For the record; that's about 100 pounds that I gained from the time I met my husband to the birth of our daughter. I am MORE than ready to lose this weight I don't need to "weigh" what I did because I know pregnancy can change your body- I just want to feel good about myself again. It's been too-long since I've been proud of the way I look. :]

P.S; My mom has been through Chemo for the last year and 3 weeks ago she had a second PT scan that showed NO SIGNS OF ACTIVE CANCER CELLS. Praise God!

It was more difficult to diet when I was living at home since my siblings are very picky, my father is very southern (and fries everything! frustrating!) so I couldn't always eat as well as I liked. I've also seen a lot of success (for the first time ever) so I'm determined to go all the way!

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss? I work long hours and don't have a lot of time for much else at present.

For right now, I am focused on trying to improve my overall fitness while making more conservative eating choices, but not tracking calories or points yet. In the past, I would try to do too many new things at once, get frustrated and give up. I hope I have learned from that. :D

Starting Date of weight loss journey: November 12, 2012

Starting Weight: 213

Present Weight: 207

Goal Weight: 145

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weight loss: Honestly, I think I am my biggest hurdle. I have low self-esteem so I tend to give up on myself easily.

Following any specific plan: Nope

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: My knees hurt now for one. I weigh more than my husband and I don't fit in the clothes I love. I'm tired of being unhappy, tired of not being able to climb flights of stairs or do any kind of real activity with my husband. I want to like what I see in the mirror, and give my husband back the woman he married.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Not that I can think of right now, but I'm sure it'll eventually come out ;)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Busy Life, Love of Fattening Food and SUPER skinny friends who can eat ANYTHING

Following any specific plan: I'm giving Belly Fat Cure a Try for 30 days and I do a 7-10 day Juice Fast/Cleanse every 2-3 months.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: This time I'm not doing it because I want to be skinny for guys, friends or events. I'm not even set on skinny. I want to be healthy. I'm getting closer and closer to those tricky years. 94% of the time the living, body habits and shape a woman has between 28-32 is the type of she will normally carry with her the rest of her life. Not to say you can't change it but a woman's body fully set's into maturity during these years. Also, I know I want kids someday and I want to be able to run and play with them. I don't want to be a statistic setting my future kids up for eating disorders and obesity.

Present Weight: 245

Goal Weight: 120

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Depression and disbelief I can be a skinny girl

I have decided to become the adult me rather than linger on the lifestyle I had as a college student. Plus, I am in the fashion industry and there are a lot of issues concerning weight in the fashion world.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I type a lot because I love to help in anyway I can. I'll always be as informative as possible. I hope you all can bare through my long posts! Hah.
