ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I have struggled with depression/anxiety all my life. I am currently taking meds that help & have a great therapist that is very helpful. I just need to utilize all the good advise she gives.
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Emotional eating, and portion control. It's just too good!
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: Finding 3FC, and a desire to be healthier before starting Uni.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I've suffered from depression for 9 years now, and social anxiety for 3, and think that changing my lifestyle might help kick them once and for all. I want to be happy
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: my mood changes so much (possible bi-polar but not diagnosed) I can go from saying I'm not going to eay that to, i dont care i'm going too, and its hard to fight.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I'm going to drink a lot more, when I see the results of other it will encourage me to keep going.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL:
The Realization that I may die young unless I do something about this/Also, that I may lose my gorgeous husband, due to being reclusive & having no life at the moment
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I have suffered from eating disorders since I was about 15 years old. I have been both anorexic & bulimic, in the past. For most of my life I have yo-yoed between being underweight & being a normal weight. 5 years ago I got so tired of manic exercise & starvation/binging/vomiting that I gave up on everything & just hid away, in the dark, behind closed doors, where I felt safe, & comforted myself with everything I had denied myself over the past 30 years! - I spiraled down into a dark depression & shut everything & everybody out. I feel sad & lonely & could really do with a friend & allie :'(

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: binging when depressed
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I'm determined to remind myself every time I want to eat a tub of ice cream that my stomach will ache, I will feel disgusting and I will gain weight. Setting "deadlines" makes me cave into the pressure, so I'm going to completely alter my lifestyle instead.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Stress eating, binge eating
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: My youngest child is four so I have more freedom of movement than when I had a toddler on my hip all of the time. Hubby wants to lose weight and shape up too.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU: I was recently told that I should not be "that person" referring to my questions about details that did not make sense at a training meeting for work. I took it as a challenge and a compliment although it was not meant as such. I have been taking Zoloft for almost twenty years for depression and have just started adding Bupropion to help with weight loss (helps with cravings). I am also low thyroid (my kids love when I forget my pills because I will forget what I assigned them to do and that I even assigned them anything) and usually anemic (I try to eat a lot of iron rich foods). I also have Interstitial cystitis which is bothered by food and stress. With a predisposition for auto immune disorders when my stress level gets to high. Generally I'm a wreck that tries to keep a positive attitude
