WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: A combination of medications and Hypothyroidism. Does that count? It's really an uphill battle. I also get cravings for fast food sometimes and occasionally eat more than I should.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I'm dedicated to working out. I'd been pretty much sedimentary for 6 years but started doing Leslie Sansone "walk at home" DVDs in January. I'm fiercely determined to ditch the fatty arm look and I work out 6 days a week.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I've struggled with major depression/bipolar and anxiety since I was 13. I was always thin as a girl, but I ended up being a guinea pig for all sorts of anti-depressants, and gained 60+ lbs over the years. All I want is to get better and feel like "me" again. I'm currently at a plateau with my weight but trying my best to stay optimistic and on track.
