Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I am a big snacker when I have the occasion. People put something down in front of me, and I'll eat it. If I plan out what to eat at for example a party beforehand it goes better - a little bit. The strategy of not snacking the rest of the day, making sure I'm full and exercising more works better for me.
Following any specific plan: Calorie counting
What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: This time I succeeded... I wanted it so bad and I was really sick of my excess weight. In my head, failure was not an option.
