AGE:56

MARITAL STATUS:divorced after 26 years of marriage

CHILDREN/AGES:1 daughter, 24

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: sewing, digital photography, scrapbooking

PETS: 1 Yorkshire terrior, 8 years old

TOP WEIGHT: 230, I think. I don't own scales.

CURRENT WEIGHT: 210 according to the scales at the grocery store last week. I don't weigh myself in public very often, but no one was around.

GOAL WEIGHT:I don't have a goal weight, really. I guess the first hurdle is to get below 200. My real goal is to get out of women's sizes and back into misses.

HEIGHT:5'7.5"

EYE COLOR:Blue

HAIR COLOR:Red

OCCUPATION:Librarian

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION:South Florida

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Up until recently I was obsessed with food. Preparation and eating.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: Once I was medicated for depression, my relationship to food became more "normal", that is I don't constantly think about what to cook or eat. That is something very new to me. Oh, and it helps that I live alone this time, since I don't have to cook for anyone but me. Unless I want to.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I have lost all my weight several times. While I'm losing I never cheat. With me it's all or nothing. As soon as I get to my goal I stay for awhile and then I start eating all wrong again. Carbs are my downfall. Keeping it off is my problem. When I'm down to my goal I have such a high self image. When I'm heavy I have very low self esteem. Every time I gain my weight back I have to go back on depression meds. blood pressure meds, diabetes meds and cholesterol meds.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I hope I will change my eating habits for good this time. I just have to treat sweets and flour products as the start of weight gain again and the vicious cycle will begin again and the severe depression will begin again.

I'm on the WW diet plan and the weight is coming off much slower this time. I don't know if it is lack of exercise or the wellbutrin. Something is different. I've been on plan since May 11, 2008 and I've only lost 9 1/2 lbs.
