Update 2016:

I am now 24 (25 in about a month) and working full-time in the Flavor and fragrances industry. I live in Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC (suburb of Montreal) with my boyfriend of nearly 5 years.

I am a 22 year old student studying full time at McGill University in Montreal, QC, Canada. I just started my Master of Science degree in Food Science and Agricultural chemistry. So far I love it since almost everything relates to food and I am just so interested in food, and everything that goes into the food industry. I would like to either work in the food safety field or in food law/policy.

From June 2012-June 2013 I lost about 50 lbs in total and was extremely happy with my progress. Since June I have put about 5-6 lbs back on and have been finding myself struggling...but I am motivated and realize that for me this will likely be along journey and I am happy, committed and willing to put in the time it takes.

My main problem is food. I cannot begin to explain how much I love food, I have yet to come across a type of food which I don't love. I am also a snacker so this combination just makes it extremely difficult.

I live in a small apartment with my boyfriend of 3 years (which doesn't much help the food situation) and travel about 3-3.5 hours daily to and from school.

A few last things about myself....I love travelling and recently went to the Galapagos Islands for 1 month, I love knitting whatever I can think of in my head, and I love being outside (especially in the Fall).

    Month one years ago and it was too long for me to stay committed to. I'm doing two right now and have reached my weight for one and need to lose 4 pounds by 6/5 for the other. Look it up!

    One thing that's keeping me motivated is Dietbet. Have you heard of it? You bet $ to lose weight and if you do, you get your money back (and the money of everyone who didn't gets split amongst everyone who did). I did just a month long one. Tried a 6

    I'm pretty motivated at the moment so I'll bug you often! Try to keep you accountable. I always think getting married would be my biggest motivation. You've lost weight before and know you can do it. It takes time. Start now!

    Ugh. No fun. I'm hypothyroid so we've both got things working against us. I have a friend with PCOS that completely changed her diet and feels so much better (and she lost a ton of weight while doing it) so it's possible.

    get my butt to the gym to do some arm stuff. Once I'm on crutches (6 weeks, no weight) I won't want to do anything! I'm hoping having to work so hard on crutches will help.
