ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I am cool person who is learning to accept who I am. I have been suffering from Depression for years. Sometimes I go through it and don't realize it until after it passes. I refuse to take medication because I feel that I can work through this. Everyone handles their depression differently and I respect that wholeheartedly. What's good or works for me may not do the same thing for anyone else. I have a problem with emotional eating and I am determined to work through because I feel that this causes the bouts of depression that I have been experiencing over the years.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM WITH LOSING WEIGHT: Not sticking to a diet. I get bored very quickly. After about 6 weeks, I need some new motivation. I'm trying not to diet, but change my way of life.

No magic pill, no magic spell, and no surgery. If I want it to be permenant, I'll have to do it the old fashion way....myself.

SPOUSE’S NAME: Dan

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: I enjoy writing short stories and poetry, (I love being published!!!), I also spend quite a bit of time with computers and am addicted to graphic design.

OCCUPATION: IT Administrator and Graphic Designer

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Conwy, North Wales

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I gained quite a bit of weight after moving here to be with my fiance, mainly depression from having to be around his parents all the time!! I love food, and because of my diabetes (type 1). I cant just eat when I want to anymore. And I often forget that.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I've had it with how my in-laws stock their home with junk and crap and how they refuse to be healthy in anyway shape or form. That, and I just want my fiance to be able to carry me over our threshhold after our wedding...

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I can recite the entirety of the short animated funny "forehead shavecut" off the top of my head from start to finish. Which should say something to the regards of "I have quite a lot of time on my hands and I'm often bored and alone"
