What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: My schedule is much more difficult to work with. Despite that, I realize that my lifestyle is unhealthy and I know I need to make a change that I can continue no matter what my schedule is, as it is not going to get any easier. I am more motivated from a health standpoint and I understand that in order to have a healthier life and body I have to address all of the personal and professional problems in my life that have been bothering me in the past year.
