Problem: Compulsive over-eating, binging

Favorite exercise: I like “Dance, Dance Revolution”, if that counts. My husband uses an elliptical trainer, he just bought one and I am thinking I might give that a try.

People I can’t stand: I don’t like folks who can’t embrace the “live and let live” policy, and leave others to make their own choices. I guess, though, that makes me a hypocrite, being that I do not leave them to make the choice of not allowing others to make choices.
