Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I am always able to get in my protein, but it is CONSTANTLY on my mind...I'm constantly thinking about what I've ate and what I need to eat to get in all the protein...like an obsession!
Following any specific plan: Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass diet...which is basically low carb, no sugar, high protein
What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: So far this one actually works!
