I am a 39 year young female. I have had trouble with my weight since I have been around 22 or so. I was always an extremely thin and slightly sickly child. And then I started dating someone who *really enjoyed their food*. Unfortunately, I begin starting to enjoy said food just as much. But, because of my bad knees, hips, and lack of stamina I have never been able to exercise very well.
Currently I am 230 pounds at 5'9". I have high blood pressure and hypothyroidism. At times I have been able to lose weight. Back in 2005 I went from 220 to 125 pounds. I was on the migraine medicine "Topamax" at the time. I also cut out all alcohol and would walk 4 miles a day I was also using Slim Fast for breakfast and lunch. Unfortunately I had to stop taking "Topamax", because it should really be called "dopamax". It literally made me the village idiot. Also in 2006 I got divorced. I because very depressed and gained all of the weight that I had lost, plus some. Last year I went from 210 to 185, but then had another set back with the depression and have once again gained the weight back.
I am now trying to get at least down under 200 again. I am really feeling the extra weight, especially as I get older. I am really hoping that coming here and tracking my "stuff" might get me motivated again.
Well, thanks for listening,
