Looking to loose 100 lbs...... I was there before, I can be there again. You see I haven't been big my whole life, though there are people (including my husband) who have only known me big.

For some reason my pregnancy (8 years ago) gave me an all access pass to smorgasboard. I ate everything, weather I was hungry or not. Nine months of that and a habit was set.

After I had my daughter I was diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder. For those that don't know what that is, it is a lot like being bi-polar with schizophrenic tendencies (hearing voices, delusions, etc). To "treat" this they put me on numerous anti-psychotic drugs. A bad side effect of many of those drugs is weight gain.

It was a vicious cycle. I wanted to loose weight, but the meds I was on made me gain.

Finally I am on a newer class anti-psychotic called Fanapt. Two wonderful things about this drug- it controls everything behavior wise that it is supposed to, and weight gain is NOT a side effect.

So here I go, on my journey of weight loss & health. Regaining what I have lost in self-esteem and strength, and loosing what I have gained in weight and bad habits.
