Screen Name: Fawchy

Age/Age Range: 17

Family Life: I live with my parents

Occupation: Still in school

Hobbies and Interests: Music, films and writing

Favorite Music: There's a lot.. but the favourite categories are singer/songwriter, electro, hardcore and swedish pop. Favorite artists/bands are Bright Eyes, Patrick Wolf, Stars, Anna Ternheim, Blood Brothers, The Cure, Cake and others..

Favorite Color(s): Red, "copper", dark grey, gold, black, brown.

Favorite Exercise/Workouts: Jogging, walking and poweryoga

What are your fitness/health goals? To lose 20 kg (40 pounds)

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? Weight has always been an issue for me... I've been overweight for most of my life, except for when I struggled with anorexia/bulimia a few years ago. So being skinny AND eat without throwing up is going to be... new. And scary. And I also wanna move out of home during the next year... and I don't know, I wanna go into the next phase of my life without having to focus so much on my weight.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? To eat the right amounts of food. I either eat way too much or way too little. That's why I'm counting calories now - I HAVE to eat 1300 calories, no more, no less.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? Controlling my food intake, getting more sleep and drink less alcohol.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? : Well, not look better than... but I'd like to lose weight so my mum will stop telling me I have to.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? Tank tops. Right now I'm not comfortable with showing my arms, so I always wear long sleeves.

Hi all.
I have done Weight Watchers, even worked there, Atkins, Cabbage Diet, etc...and I am back...again and now want to count calories and exercise my way to greatness.
Right now, I am 166, 5' 2", and want to get to 126. Never have I had to lose so much. I plan on eating no more than 1400 cal/day along with 30min/walk/run per day. I know how to eat, but I am a total overeater.
Wish me luck and any encouragement is appreciated!
