Screen Name: I'm Kelsey

Age/Age Range: Just turned 24 this month

Family Life: I'm single and living with friends

Occupation: A student, but only for a few more months, then it's on to the "Real" world!! Yikes! I'd like to be healthy for that!

Hobbies and Interests: I'm a huge book nerd, love movies, anything outside, swimming, camping, golfing, reading a book outside is always the best

Favorite Music:Anything country, but i'm getting into artists like Damian Rice, Iron & Wine, Joshua Randin

Favorite Exercise/Workouts:Swimming

What are your fitness/health goals? To be able to run and play sports with my friends, i seem to be the only out of shape one so i'm always holding cell phones and sunglasses, I want to be the one playing! Also I'd like to start eating healthy, cut out most of the processed food in my diet.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? Gosh darn pictures, I used to think I looked good in pictures and was ok with my weight but anymore I can't take one with out the double chin and the giant arms and big gut, I am not a happy camper.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Moving! getting up and doing something, If i have free time I like to catch up on my reading, nap, i'm not an active person and I think that makes a huge difference.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? Actually exercising, not eating out so much, and trying to eat healthier.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? haha as long as I am no longer the fat friend, I'll be happy...but there is this girl that weighs just slightly less than I do that I would like to look better then, she's got the confidence that I crave and I think with a little work I can have it because I will look hotter

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? Heels!! I think a huge part of me not being able to wear them is that I'm so clumsy at this weight and my legs are weak and my feet are too swollen half the time.

Redheaded I am

Age/Age Range:
39

Family Life:
Divorced, a 10-year-old son, and engaged to an Army man

Occupation:
Adult Education within the Criminal Justice System

Hobbies and Interests:
Hanging out with my son, reading, nature, arts & crafts, quiet time with myself. Oh, and I'm a Harry Potter maniac and a Star Trek: Next Generation nut.

Favorite Music:
I will forever be a child of the 80's!!! Add to that Carlos Nakai, Will Clipman, the Killdares, and some 70's music (Fleetwood Mac, Eagles, Stevie Nicks, etc.) Also some of what falls under the heading "Adult Contemporary".

Favorite Color(s):
Fuschia and bright blue

Favorite Exercise/Workouts:

Walking in nature. Everything else is a chore...for right now.

What are your fitness/health goals?
I want to be able to climb/hike to Airport Mesa in Sedona without any help, and without having a heart attack. Once I'm there I'll watch the sun set. In general, I want to be able to freely hike in nature. Also, I want my feet to stop hurting.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit?
I actually lost 94 pounds on Atkins a few years ago. It would take too long to talk about why they went back on. I've been moving this direction for a while (gave up soda...been eating whole foods for a lot of my food). Now I've decided to go all the way and lose the weight for once and for all.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health?
Eating too much. I'm an emotional eater, but beyond that I'm a budding foodie who genuinely likes to eat and experience food.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve?
1) I feel hunger a lot. I want to eat a lot.
2) I need to exercise more. A lot more. It's really hot and sticky right now, so that's my dumb excuse.
3) Did I mention I feel hungry?

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? :
Honestly, my worst battles are with myself. I want to look better than I do right now.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size?
I want to easily find cute capris with all the pockets, tabs, etc. I also want to be able to shoe shop based on what I like, not based on what will fit my chunky foot.

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Walking and lifting right now.
What are your fitness/health goals? My ultimate goal is to be at the high end of the "healthy" body fat % range. But 150 is a nice number for me, over 1/2 my weight would be gone! But short term, 250.
What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? I had baby #2, and we are done. Plus my dad, who was my best friend, dropped dead of an apparent heart attack at 58 (2 yrs ago). He was a 6x, had high BP, and was very sedentary. So I don't want to be like him in that way, other ways, not a problem. He was awesome.
What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Weight is huge for me. I have accepted it a while ago that I was "meant" to be fat. But now I know I don't have to be!! I can change it. It will be tough as **** but it's worth seeing my future great grand babies!
What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? Watching portions, getting/staying motivated, late night snacking!
(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? : All my friends! I want to be the hottie that DH deserves to be married to! He loves me no matter what, and I am already smaller than when we began dating, but I want to be a MILF!!
What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? A single digit size! I would love a bikini, but I am afraid I won't have the guts! I would love to shop anywhere, so that's a huge thing!

Height: 5'5"

Default

Screen Name: CaffeineIV

Age/Age Range: 30's but only admit to 28

Family Life: Married 11 years now, 2 boys 7 and 4.5 years old

Occupation: Photographer

Hobbies and Interests: Photography, horseback riding, art, and because I have boys...trains are forced upon me.

Favorite Music: I have a wide variety of favourites. Love classical as I did ballet for 10.5 years, love some of the 80's music, oh all sorts of things.

Favorite Color(s): depends on what we are talking about. Favourite colour in shirts, paint, or what...don't really have one specific favourite.

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: none right now, can't really exercise as the pool at the Y is closed and I can't get a membership till Sept (10th anniversary so they should have sales galore). I can't walk or do much else because of a car crash a year ago and back pain still.

What are your fitness/health goals? Well, I'd like to be able to keep up with the boys no matter what they are doing.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit?
I didn't really have one. I decided to go on a diet with my best friend who is morbidly obese and though I'm considered obese...I don't look it with clothes on. I want to lose some weight though, I'm going to England for 10 days to meet a bunch of people I only know online.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? Chocolate, it knows my name and it has a very loud demanding voice. Oh, that and the inability to exercise. I love to exercise, I really do...I used to run 5 miles a day years ago but then I developed epilepsy, had 2 kids, got rear-ended by a guy speeding and not looking where he was going. You know how it goes.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? Umm...I need to continue to diet, I need to start to exercise, and I need to keep exercising. How's that.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? : I'd like to be able to stand next to my sister and not feel like I might be nearing 2 of her. She is the sort who came over to my house when I was 7 months pregnant with hypertension (swelling so bad that you could poke me and there would be a dent for hours) and for some reason felt she had to bring clothes to try on AT MY HOUSE. Then, she came out and complained that a size 4 seemed a bit big. Ugh.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? I'd like to wear a skirt that isn't down to my feet...or anything that shows my knees. Really, I'd mostly just like to be able to go into a store, see something I think is cute and have a chance of actually being able to wear it without getting depressed with how horrible I look.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? The plethora of short plaid skirts I love and adore from high school/ college.

Just saying hi. Actually I want to see if I did the profile correct and what my posts look like. I'm not very computer savy! Here for support for wt loss. I've ALWAYS struggled with my weight. Right before I got pregnant I was on ANOTHER diet and then I ended up gaining like 60 lbs with this pregnancy!! I'm down to were I was before I got preggers (took a year) but now I need to loose that same weight that's been hanging in there for my whole life.
