What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? My back hurt all the time and i was moving into a size 24, after that even the "plus size" stores can't help you. I was just miserable and disappointed in myself.

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Walking

What are your fitness/health goals? To get back down to my previous weight loss weight from a few years ago.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? I'm finally in the right mental state to do this. My coworkers have been dieting all around me off and on for the past year, but I just was not ready yet. I had lost my father to a horrible battle with cancer, I just started a new job, and my marriage wasn't as stable as I would have liked. These 3 major life stresses kept me from being able to commit to a weight loss journey.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? I have a great deal of pain in my hips and thighs this time around. It's arthritis. Yay. If I get too much exercise, I find myself in a great deal of pain for days on end. So I need to find that happy medium - enough to lose weight steadily, but not so much as to cause such pain.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve?
Portion control. Exercise (see above) sticking to the journey and maintaining after

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? : I just want to look and feel my best for the age I am

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size?
I have the coolest pair of black dress pants with a paisly material.
And I also really miss my Black Leather Trench Coat.

What are your fitness/health goals? Get back down to what I was back in May - 165.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? My boyfriend and I were at a Christmas party for his work and someone took our picture...

Occupation: Commercial real estate agent

Hobbies and Interests: Hanging out with boyfriend, just picked up crocheting

Favorite Music: I like almost any type of music but I really love classic rock

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Pilates, Yoga, Wii Fit

What are your fitness/health goals? To minimize the size of my mid section! I really want to be healthy and avoid some of the weight related health problems some of my extended family members have developed.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? Whew. It seems like there have been quite a few recently, but one of the most profound incidents (albeit superficial) occurred about a year and a half ago. I won't get into specifics, but I saw an old boyfriend and the look on his face really affected me. While not trying to be hurtful, he made a comment about how different I looked, and I knew exactly what he meant.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? I tend to "reward" myself too much. If I eat well for a few days I want to give myself a treat. I need to not do this too often.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? I would love to incorporate a cardio exercise into my routine.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? : Honestly, I would like to look better than myself in the last couple of pictures I have taken.
