I'm rapidly approaching my big 3-0 (birthday's at the end of the year), and decided that I want to spend this next decade of my life at a healthy weight. I've had weight issues since I was about 5 or 6. I've never been an extremely large person, but I've just never been happy with the way I look. A few years back I was living on my own and just never bothered to eat and managed to lose quite a bit of weight. I still don't remember being happy then, but I liked the way I looked a lot more.
Currently I'm giving the whole low carb thing a go. I've been yo-yo dieting since about my freshman year of college with no real success. I've heard a lot of people take quite a bit of weight off and keep it off on low carb regimens, so I figure I might as well give it a shot.
As for me outside of dieting, I consider myself a bit of a nerd, and enjoy learning about science, nature, history... hell, this will be a long list... let's just say I enjoy learning lots of new things, and staying abreast of current events. I used to be a huge video gamer, but have a bit of trouble finding the time to fit it all in these days, though I do still fit a bit of it into my leisure time. I love to cook (Alton Brown is my hero!), and my current obsession is devouring (only a bit of a pun intended) information about low carb cooking and baking.
