BIGGEST WEIGHT LOSS PROBLEM: I have more than one. Sticking to it and sweets. I can go without soda but cookies, cakes, candy and sugary things is difficult for me to stay away from. Especially when I work in a kitchen. Them spoiled old people want sweets all the time haha.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: Having PCOS with a boyfriend who wants kids and I might not be able to give them to him scares the crap out of me. I also want to feel healthier and thinner. I've never been below 200lbs in my adult life.

ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I discovered MYSELF that I have PCOS. My doctor only confirmed it. I was actually watching an episode of Scrubs and it was mentioned in the show. I was curious to what the **** is was so I looked it up. I realized I have every symptom. Had my doctor confirm it I think 8 years ago.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I feel frustrated and dumb that I didn't realize sooner that I had PCOS. I've had hair growing on my face and neck all my adult life but I just thought women in my family are hairy. And my periods were irregular but I didn't really notice except when it went away for almost a year in college and the doctor just put me on birth control pills rather than figure out what caused it. It was only because I was trying to have a baby that I finally found out at 32 years old and I feel way behind in getting my symptoms managed.

USERNAME/REAL NAME: Laifierr/Jen

AGE: 33

BIRTHDAY: November 18

MARITAL STATUS: Married almost two years

LOCATION: Central IL

HOBBIES: Artist for life, hiking

PETS: none

TOP WEIGHT: 295

CURRENT WEIGHT: 281

GOAL WEIGHT 107

HEIGHT: 5'4"

OCCUPATION: full time student at Illinois State University with one year to go.

BIGGEST WEIGHT LOSS PROBLEM: self sabotage, emotional binge eating

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: Recently diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes so it's twisted my arm into actually needing to do something about my health

ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I really like this dancing carrot

But seriously, I love nature, I love the outdoors, I love hiking. And if it wasn't for the fact I have spent so many years trying to complete my degree as an artist, I would probably try to become a nutritional biologist/scientist.

Also, I have probably had PCOS since I was fairly young. I've never had a natural period and I've pretty much given up on ever having one. The idea of having kids is up in the air.

I'm just super excited to meet someone and to be accountable to a group.
