Hi, I'm Jenn. I'm 28 years old and live in New York City. I've been overweight my entire life. I've always proscratinated and found excuses not to lose the weight, and in the meantime, kept packing on more pounds. I'm definitely an emotional eater, and would just binge for no reason. Back in February, I finally found the motivation to do something about it. I decided that I wasn't going to wait for it to really effect my health, and I started having difficulty getting around.

Hi, I'm Jenn. I'm 28 years old and live in New York City. I've been overweight my entire life. I've always proscratinated and found excuses not to lose the weight, and in the meantime, kept packing on more pounds. I'm definitely an emotional eater, and would just binge for no reason. Back in February, I finally found the motivation to do something about it. I decided that I wasn't going to wait for it to really effect my health, and I started having difficulty getting around. I decided that it was time to change that, and since then have been eating right and exercising. The eating right part has been easier for me surprisingly, but the exercise is difficult for me. I work long hours so its hard to motivate myself, but once I do, I'm so glad I did. I'm down just under 50 pounds so far, and still have a long way to go. I'm taking it one day at a time.

I'd love to meet others who are trying to lose weight. My friends and family are great but it would be great to have support from someone really gets it. So say hi if you're reading this! :-)

Update: 6/6/08 Down 55 pounds!

Update: 7/4/08 Down 70 pounds!

Update: 8/5/08 Down 90 Pounds!

Update: September 2008 - Down over 100 pounds! I never thought I'd get this far. I have about another 100 pounds to lose, but I did it once so I know I can do it again. I posted some progress pics in my gallery. I don't notice how big the difference is until I look at pictures like these.

January 2009 - Its been a bit of a rollercoaster over the past few months. I was down to 210 in early December, and then went off the wagon. With work stress, holidays, vacations, I started binging all the way up to 235. I'm now back down to 222, and am committed to losing what I gained and more. I want to be under 200 pounds for the first time in my adult life! I am seeing a trainer, and working out quite a bit on my own. The food is the harder part right now, but I am working to not give in to my urges.

My Goals:
1. To only eat when I'm hungry.
2. To make smart choices about what I eat, and remember that "its just food."
3. To do some exercise every day
4. To eventually know what thin feels like!

My Program:
I'm not doing any set program. I had been seeing a nutritionist, but stopping because she wasn't telling me anything I didn't already know and wasn't particularly supportive. So far doing well on my own, but am considering joining weight watchers or possibly trying a different nutritionist.

Happy Birthday to You!! Sorry I missed your birthday!

Born October 15, you may not always know what is going on around you, so self-absorbed can you be at times -- but even then you are not always self-aware, and you may not have the greatest understanding of the course your life is taking. You are likely to be buffeted here and there by the winds of fate more than most -- but there is something about you that actually enjoys this kind of living, and you will surely hone the skills required to make the best of situations that fall upon you, rather than are made by you.

You have a vivid sense of humor, and you are more than willing to laugh at yourself -- and this can prove quite an advantage, especially when others want to laugh at you themselves.

Today’s Libra Horoscope: You must take care that you do not endanger yourself while striving to keep others safe. The same precautions work for you, too!

You share a birthday with: Sarah Ferguson, former Duchess of York; Emeril Lagasse, celebrity chef; Tanya Roberts, actress; Jim Palmer, baseball player; Penny Marshall, actress and director; Linda Lavin, actress; Lee Iacocca, auto mogul; Mario Puzo, author, creator of "The Godfather"; Arthur Schlesinger Jr., speechwriter and historian; John Kenneth Galbraith, economist; Friedrich Nietzsche, philosopher.

Hope your day was wonderful!
