Pets: 4 cats >.<

Height: 5'6"

Eye/Hair Color: Brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Today, all other attempts nonwithstanding

Starting Weight: 160

Present Weight: 160

Goal Weight
: 130

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I live with, and work with, a bunch of boys who eat 4x as much as I do... And my habits are easily influenced.

Following any specific plan: Watching the calories

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I've never cared much about my appearance, as I've been too wrapped up in my academic persuits to give it much thought. As such, all of my friends and associates tend to look up to me as someone who couldn't care less about any aspect of her appearance, so when my weight began to become an issue to me, I kept my attempts at losing weight quiet. I therefore lost out on a lot of support from communities like this, which I think can make a big difference between success and defeat.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm socially ******ed

Marital Status: single

Children/Ages: none

Occupation: College Student (Philosophy senior)

Pets: Chihuahua, my baby Peanut

Hobbies/Interests: reading, writing, listening to music, movies, t.v., shopping, spending time with friends and family

Height: 5'6"

Eye/Hair Color: black/black

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 1/1/2006

Starting Weight: Highest weight was 315, but starting weight this time around is 306

Present Weight: 306

Goal Weight: Never been even close to thin, right now I'm saying 120, but this might be too low, I just know I don't want to go below this. I rather just wait and see what I look like down the road.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Many hurdles for me. I LOVE food, the more fattening, the better. I would eat so much at one sitting that I wouldn't have to eat the rest of the day, but I probably would. I'm also impatient, so waiting for it to come off is difficult. I also eat when I'm upset, and being this way is upsetting, so it has become a cycle that I plan to break.

Following any specific plan: The G.I. Diet with plenty of exercise.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Before, I was trying to lose weight for superficial reasons, such as trying to hook a man, partying more, just basically looking cute. I still want to do these things of course, but none of these things matter if I don't become a healthier person. I'm 21, and I've already been diagnosed with diabetes. If I lose this weight, I won't have to take any medication and that would be such a blessing right about now.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Yup, I'm going to be one healthy and sexy chica!

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: my mother's recent diagnosis with diabetes and my diagnosis of PCOS, combined with the fact that I am too fat for normal health insurance has opened my eyes to the fact that this is really about my health and not just being able to wear a bikini (or a big ol' one piece, for that matter) and feel good about myself in it.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I realized that the reason why I feel I'm stuck in the shadows of my teenage life is because I haven't really fullfilled my teenage/childhood dream of being fit and healthy. Unless I accomplish that, I will have the weightloss obsession for the rest of my life. I need to get this over with so I can move on and start thinking about other things!

Anything else you would like to share with us: I was never thin. I don't know what thin me looks like. I'm now at my lowest weight range (+/- a few pounds). I'm looking forward to seeing thin me.
