WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Knowing when to stop eating, avoiding impulsive, stress eating, and portion control. Oh yeah, moving enough.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I'm starting to feel pains in my feet and legs and I know that carrying this extra weight could eventually disable or kill me.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm usually a happy person, but I try too hard to please everyone around me before myself. I need to work on putting myself first without guilt, while maintaining a busy home life and loving and caring for those around me. When I get depressed or stressed, I eat. I need to share with others in my same position about different strategies and just to lift each other up!

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: not sure yet

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I initially gained weight due to medication (Zyprexa & Risperdal, when I was first in the initial stages of diagnosis). I never managed to lose it again, and also a change in diet didn't help either (I went from strict vegan to eating a lot more dairy and butter fat, etc.). Now, I'm trying to find the discipline to go back to my once healthier lifestyle.
