WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I eat when I'm bored, stressed, lonely. I LOVE FOOD! And, although I know what foods are healthy, I am a junk food junky. My appetite has been ravenous since I was put on lexapro this past spring.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: My doc took me off lexapro and put me on a prozac/topamax mix. At least now I'm not constantly ravenous.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?: Prior to 1999 when I got pregnant with my first son I weighed 135 lbs. and ran in NYC marathon. We lost our first ds when he was 3.5 months old due to congenital heart defects. For the last 6 years I found comfort in food. I'm ready to lose this weight!
