Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Clothes frustrations (this is a good thing, though), drinking enough water, and surprisingly enough - trying to eat enough. Handling compliments well - I'm not used to it yet.
Following any specific plan: WLS, jenny craig
What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: the weight is coming off pretty regularly, but never fast enough.
Anything else you would like to share with us: You can still gain weight after weight loss surgery if you are not careful about the calories.
