I'm not on any medication like I should be because we can't afford it, but I think I'm getting better at controlling myself. Mostly for my bi-polar. Being off my meds have definitely affected how I'm functioning. I've always been heavy, so I don't blame the medication, on or off. Luckily I got my really extreme depression fits out of my system (I hope) in middle school, and I've made some amazing friends when I started high school a few years ago. Nice to meet you all, and I wish you all the best in your depression and weight loss

USERNAME/REAL NAME: HollyGolightly (I love Audrey Hepburn). Real name is Stacy

AGE: 34...for a few more days!

BIRTHDAY: January 29, 1974

MARITAL STATUS: Single (but I have a wonderful boyfriend)

CHILDREN/AGES: None that I know of! Ha!

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Reading, traveling, watching my favourite hockey team...Vancouver Canucks.

PETS: 2 Kitty cats...Sadie and Izzy

TOP WEIGHT: 140

CURRENT WEIGHT: 140

GOAL WEIGHT: 100lbs

HEIGHT: 5'1

EYE COLOR: Blue

HAIR COLOR: Blonde

OCCUPATION:

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Rocky Mountain High...Denver, Colorado

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I'll admit it...I LOVE to eat! I also lead a pretty sedentary lifestlye. I eat whenever I'm bored and whenever I get depressed.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: My weight is effecting my health (both mental and physical) and that isn't acceptable to me. If I want to live a long healthy life, I need to stop putting the exercise and healthy eating on the back burner and do something about it now.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? My confidence and self-esteem are pretty low right now and that kind of scares me. I don't have health insurance so I'm not able to afford the meds I need. I'm currently trying to find a job so I can get health insurance but in this economy, it has been difficult. I know all this makes me sound like a pretty depressing person to be around but I am funny, love to laugh and joke around.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Eating

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I'm tired of aches and pains, joints, eating as a hobby, I want to be around for my daughter, I want to move, and, last but not least, spite.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?

I love laughter, jokes, I never mean to offend anyone, the true love of my life is my child whom I never thought I would have. I'm a single mother, not something I planned, but the greatest gift I have ever been given. I'm a struggling single mother, depression plays a role in this, again, as it's lifting and I'm getting treatment I'm thinking this could change;-)

I would like to change my thinking habits, become more positive. and get rid of SHAME things I can't change, but did because at the time it seemed right.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I struggled with an eating disorder for years, and even though I'm not actively purging, I find it extremely difficult to eat without immediately hating myself afterwards and debating over whether or not I should keep it down. Lately, I think my nerves and anxiety have gotten so bad that it's making me physically ill after meals. I never feel comfortable after eating.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I will begin seeing a psychiatrist May 7th, maybe he will get my head right.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm such a free spirit, and it kills me that I spend so much time worrying about something as insignificant as my looks (I'm not unhealthy, phsyically, according to my doctors.)
