If I put the whole list here, you guys will think I'm a total nut job:
1) In the late 60s, the doctor gave me diet pills (before they removed the "speed"), and I had these experiences where I'd be up in the corner of the ceiling "watching" myself work at my desk. Stopped those, but not before I had a small blackout and hit a parked car--last thing I remembered was the intersection and two kids on bikes, car was in the middle of the block.
2) When I got over 200 for the first time, I went to a clinic and did the liquid fast, under doctor's supervision, for three months. I only lost 50 lbs on 300 calories of liquid a day!
3) In college, I signed up at the gym for those wrap thingies--and used to go get on the Fridays when I planned to go out. Until I rehydrated, I looked really good in jeans SEVERAL sizes smaller. 8-)
4) By 1988, I weighed 325 lbs and was getting dangerously close to 40--so I had a weight-loss surgery (Mar 89) and did the first permanent dye job on my gray hair.
As they say, "first liar never has a chance" 8-)
