FAVORITE BAND/MUSIC: I like a little bit of everything in terms of music. I tend to pay attention to the lyrics more than the music itself. I love Billy Joel, The Beatles, Tom Jones, 60's to 80's music. The occasional current song will catch my ear, but give me the classics any day.
PROBLEM In WEIGHTLOSS: Focusing on me. I am a people pleaser, coupled with depression, and a misdiagnosis that had me on the wrong medication for years.
