    PETS: 1 Yorkshire terrior, 8 years old

    TOP WEIGHT: 230, I think. I don't own scales.

    CURRENT WEIGHT: 210 according to the scales at the grocery store last week. I don't weigh myself in public very often, but no one was around.

    GOAL WEIGHT:I don't have a goal weight, really. I guess the first hurdle is to get below 200. My real goal is to get out of women's sizes and back into misses.

    EYE COLOR:Blue

    HAIR COLOR:Red

    OCCUPATION:Librarian

    GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION:South Florida

    WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Up until recently I was obsessed with food. Preparation and eating.

    WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: Once I was medicated for depression, my relationship to food became more "normal", that is I don't constantly think about what to cook or eat. That is something very new to me. Oh, and it helps that I live alone this time, since I don't have to cook for anyone but me. Unless I want to.

    HEIGHT: 5'5"

    EYE COLOR: Blue

    HAIR COLOR: Grey

    OCCUPATION: Retired

    GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Salt Lake City, Ut.

    WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: I have lost all my weight several times. While I'm losing I never cheat. With me it's all or nothing. As soon as I get to my goal I stay for awhile and then I start eating all wrong again. Carbs are my downfall. Keeping it off is my problem. When I'm down to my goal I have such a high self image. When I'm heavy I have very low self esteem. Every time I gain my weight back I have to go back on depression meds. blood pressure meds, diabetes meds and cholesterol meds.

    WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I hope I will change my eating habits for good this time. I just have to treat sweets and flour products as the start of weight gain again and the vicious cycle will begin again and the severe depression will begin again.

  • I'm on the WW diet plan and the weight is coming off much slower this time. I don't know if it is lack of exercise or the wellbutrin. Something is different. I've been on plan since May 11, 2008 and I've only lost 9 1/2 lbs.
