How do you feel about yourself, your weight, your decision to change? very self conscious, it has really interferred with my social life. I really want to lose, but find it hard to get started.

How long have you been overweight? Since 1994, after my divorce, I have gained almost 90 pounds. I have been stuck in a rut and cannot seem to get over this. No excuses now!

What things have you tried before to lose the weight? Herbal Life, Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Nutri System, Slim Fast, all kinds of fad things

What is the number one reason you want to lose weight? So I can go out and not worry about if anyone is staring at me because I am so huge.

What are some other reasons? Go dance, wear a tank top, tuck in my shirt, wear a belt, go swimming at the local waterpark and have fun

What is your goal weight? 275

What is the first thing you want to do when you reach your goal? go on vacation, sit in an airline sit without using the seat belt extender.

Are the people closest to you supportive? If not, why? Yes, but I have said I was going on a diet so often, they don't seem to believe me anymore. I think my husband loves me too much. He has a bigger sweet tooth than I do.

What is the worst thing about being overweight? I'm not me, I'm not the person I once was and make excuses not to do things I normally would. I avoid friends and people like the plague. I want to fly on an airplane without worrying about getting kicked off or forced to buy a second seat.

What is the best thing about you? I am honest with everyone but myself.

How will losing weight affect those around you? Right now, those around me are the last one's on my mind. I need to look out for #1.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (low to high) how determined are you to reach your goal? 8
