Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: The desire to binge. I start eating and I don't want to stop until i end up feeling like a blimp. I use food as a security blanket - when my day doesn't go well, I turn to food. I really gotta stop that!

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I really don't know. I think that's my problem. I haven't really gotten into it yet. This is a hurdle I have to overcome.

Default

First name (if you want to tell): Sarah

Geographical location: New Jersey

Age: 17

Marital Status: I have a boyfriend whom I am considering dating long distance...

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Student in high school until Thursday, and then I'm a college student!

Pets: Two dogs, a Siberian Husky samed Sonya and a Chocolate Lab named Max, also a blue Japanese fighting fish named Jaws.

Hobbies/Interests: Volleyball, shopping, baking, singing, DDR, socializing... basically everything.

Height: 5'4"

Eye/Hair Color: Hazel/green/tealish eyes with brown around the edge and dark brown hair with lighter highlights

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Sometime in Freshman year, though I started before that and gained it all back and then some. But my highest recorded weight was at that time, (about 3 years ago), so I suppose you could say it was Freshman year.

Starting Weight: 180-ish

Present Weight: 132

Goal Weight: 125

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Food has always been my security blanket, my consolation, and my best friend basically. So it's very hard to say no to Zebra Cakes and Cheeseburger Macaroni when I'm having a stressful day, but I've learned that overindulging will only make me more upset afterwards because I am not only stressed, I also feel miserable about eating too much.

Following any specific plan: Weight Watchers POINTS, though I've modified it a bit (using an older plan, before they had Flex Points, because it suits my lifestyle better and helps to keep me on the plan), trying to work out a little more, haven't really had much time.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have really stuck to the diet this time, it's been quite a while that I have stayed within this weight range/clothing size. I put on a few pounds about a month ago and took them off again, and I really just want to stay within the 125-135 pound range for the long-term.

This seems like the perfect thread for my first post!

First name (if you want to tell): Marie

Geographical location: Iowa

Age: 25

Marital Status: Single

Children/Ages: None

Occupation: Counselor/hopefully soon-to-be graduate student

Pets: None. I can't have any in my apartment

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, puzzles, music (listening or playing)

Height: 5'5"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue/Blonde

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: May 1st for this try.

Starting Weight: 234

Present Weight: 230

Goal Weight: 140

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Impulse eating-sometimes I'm halfway done eating something before I realize or think about what I'm doing!

Following any specific plan: I think I'll call it the "Stay Away From the Drive-Thru Diet"

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm doing it for different reasons. Before it was purely because I wanted to look better. This time I want to lose the weight because I've been thinking a lot about my health and also the health problems some of my relatives are having now (especially diabetes). Also, I've been embarassed to talk about my weight in the past, but this time I'm trying to get a good support system going.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Just want to tell everyone hello!

Children/Ages: One daughter, Grace 7 months old

Occupation: Technical Assistant for an insurance company

Pets: I have one cat, but she lives with my parents since we can't have pets in my apt .. her name is Bob

Hobbies/Interests: Shopping, video games, computers, being with my family

Height: 5'8"

Eye/Hair Color: blue/brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: Ugh well it should have started seven months ago, but officialy started on May 9, 2005

Starting Weight: 193

Present Weight: 193

Goal Weight: 145-150

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I love love LOVE junk food, can't get enough! But the biggest hurdle is that I am an incredibly picky eater and don't like many vegetables or anything that is good for you so its tough for me to find things I like to eat that aren't fattening.

Following any specific plan: Mainly just watching what I eat and how much I eat. I allow myself one good snack a day so I don't go crazy and pig out too much. I've started walking during my lunch hour (two miles) so hopefully this works! I'm also taking a diet pill as well but am not relying too much on that.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Before I just wasn't motivated enough! I didn't have a scale in my apt so I never weighed myself, but the other week went to the doc and she weighed me and I saw I weigh almost 200 lbs and I realized that I need to stop being lazy and get healthy!!

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: eating the right foods, always am broke and is easier to hit the dollar menu some days, then go to the store, trying to break this..

Following any specific plan: keep track of foods eaten (watch portions), and exercise as much as possible at least 3 X a week

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: .

Its finally becoming clear to me, food and exercise go hand and hand, you can't have weight loss and a healthy life with out these two in balance.
