ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I'm a born again SHE (sidetracked home executive) and a member of Flylady. I homeschool my 13 year old daughter and try to keep up with the IEP's of my 6 year old son. He has high function autism and ADHD (hyper active impulse), I also take care of my mother during the day. She had a stroke a year ago this past November. It really threw me off on my last diet. I had lost 20 lbs and was down to 200, but had to give up going to the gym 3 times a week, and walking 2 times a week, because I had to take her to therapy sessions, fix her meals and clean up her messes and because no one else in the family wanted to take care of her. Including my father. I even went to the doctor and was put on Zoloft at that time. I stopped taking it, because it caused me to gain weight and in the begining I wasn't eating because I was too busy spending from 8 in the morning when I put the kids on the bus, till 11 at night when my father finally came home with my mother. My house feel apart and I lost interest in taking care of myself.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I always feel overwhelmed. Too much to do, not enough time to do it, as well as diet and exercise, along with too little money. This depresses me...and I eat. I also get depressed over problems that have "nothing to do with me."

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Getting frustrated when I don't see the scale budging, and instead of focusing on how much better I feel I drown my frustration in food. Plus I eat a lot
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL:
I want to be healthy, not succumb to illnesses that are now taking over my family. Plus with being depressed I feel it might help my self image some and I may not need to be put on meds.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I am Wiccan, although I do not look down on any other religion as I was raised Baptist and live with Irish Catholics. I am inquisitive and tend to be insecure...but I always am willing to lend a helping hand or encouraging word when needed.
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Motivation
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I really don't know. Perhaps I have hit the bottom and I am noticing and definately not liking some new things about my body lately that I have never experienced before. In many ways, I feel as if I am letting my 20's slip through my fingers by not taking better care of myself.
Also, when I lost weight before, I never had accountability. Perhaps this is what an on-line community could do for me.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? It's nice to know that I am not alone in many ways here, and not just in my struggles with weight.
