WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I am an emotional eater, I eat to fill the void of whatever I feel is missing in my life at that time. I overeat. Fast food - convenient for a busy single lifestyle. I love all the wrong foods & not healthy food.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I have had several health scares in the past. I also have an amazing therapist. The need to prove to myself & everyone that I can do it.

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: Comfort Eating/Binging on Food & Wine

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.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
Have lupus, so I get quite ill. Some weeks I'm fine, other weeks I ache all over. It gets me down but I want to focus on the good things in life - food isn't a solution.

Cool Hi from Lexi's world

DATE: 1-20-12

USERNAME/REAL NAME: Lexipain / alexia

AGE: 35

BIRTHDAY: 2-25-76

MARITAL STATUS: married (18yrs on 3-18-12)

SPOUSE’S NAME: Gregory

CHILDREN/AGES: Corbin-13yrs , Courtney 7yrs , Maxwell 4yrs

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Sewing (repairs, cross stitch -old printed patterns done in new ways-clothes for my 4lb chihuahua), reading (the older and weirder the better, I have been known to read just about anything if left in a waiting room too long), plants(just started composting, going to try square foot gardening in the spring, lots of house plants), Kludging stuff (non standard repairs using available supplies), thrift shopping for that really cool find.

PETS: 3 dogs - rosie the before mentioned tiny one, Kita my husbands sulky long haired pooch, Martha our outside dog aka the escape artist or big brat. one house cat - Wall-E - who is very nearsighted and puffy, about 15 barn cats. Two finches named Beep and Meep. and two tanks of fish - one on the porch with big goldfish in it and one in the house with tiny schooling fish.

TOP WEIGHT: 249/5 (sadly only about a pound over current and that includes when I was pregnant)

CURRENT WEIGHT: 248lbs

GOAL WEIGHT: short term 199.5lbs -as long as it starts with a one then I'm okay with it, long term 165lbs

HEIGHT: 5 ft 9 in

EYE COLOR: green

HAIR COLOR: dirty blonde with white highlights

OCCUPATION: order entry rep

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: south Texas

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
