What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Nothing is different. Still have the same reasons and efforts for doing it...my health. It use to be vanity, but at my age now it's all about being healthy and living a longer life with my family and friends.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I was in a support group before and I will say that that is the key to your success. As long as they were there I was there. Eventually they all left and I did too and gained all my weight back. Family is good, but they don't have the same understanding as the ones in my same situation, so it's harder for them to give me the support I actually need. I'm looking forward to winning this journey and living it for life.

Hello! I'm relatively new to 3FC and this looks like a great group!

First name: Joy

Geographical location: New England

Age: 41

Marital Status: Married

Occupation: SAHM/Grad student

Pets: 1 cat

Hobbies/Interests: Reading, current events, nature, walking/jogging, tennis

Height: 5' 3"

Eye/Hair Color: Blue/medium brown

Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: October 2010

Starting Weight:
202 lbs

Goal Weight:
Ideally 145 lbs, but I feel really good and healthy at 160 ish

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I was prescribed antidepressants for my PMDD and perimenopausal symptoms. I've since stopped the medication, however I'm worried that something is now out of balance. I was gaining weight like crazy while taking the SSRIs even though my diet hadn't changed. I feel as though my metabolism is "out of whack" if that's possible.

Following any specific plan: Lots of exercise, drinking more water, cutting out diet soda, sweets, and counting calories with the help of the iPhone app "Lose It".

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm dealing with the effects of antidepressants, even though I am no longer taking any medications.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Thanks for the great forum.
