Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I need to be mindful of my eating. I sometimes eat when stressed or bored, so I have to keep a watch out for that. Also, I am easily discouraged and it sometimes leads me to fall back into bad habits.
Following any specific plan: Move more, eat less and only when I am hungry is my basic plan.
What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm focusing more on mini goals and trying to forget that I have a larger goal so I won't get as discouraged when thinking about how far I have to go.
Anything else you would like to share with us: 3FC is really a great help. Reading about other people's struggles and successes really helps me know that I'm not alone.
