Hi everyone! Here's my info. I hope that with the constant use of this forum, I'll get the encouragement that I need to lose about 90 pounds. I think having friends in the same boat will help!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?

I'm at my max weight ever...but I'm also to the point of being miserable so I hope this time will be the time I can stick to it! I usually take phentermine to lose weight. Since I'm on Zoloft, I can't take phentermine which means more work for me.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: In the past, I think I just didn't care? I was pretty comfortable with my weight being 155-165 for many years until I got pregnant. The weight piled on with both of them and I guess I never felt compelled enough to doing something about getting rid of it before now. I'm 30 and having health problems as a result of the weight so its time for it to go.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: Its do or die this time.

Hello,
Normally, is depression a continuation of a certain bad event that happened in your life? Does it continue especially if you over analyze or think things and you just kept it all to yourself? Depression is normal to appear, right?
