Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I like my candies. Especially around the holiday season. Its allll sooo good!!! I don't enjoy exercising. And we are always on the go. We drive for a living. So I have to pack healthy lunches, or we get fast food I also suffer from arthritis in my hips bad. Somedays, I just can't do anything. I get depressed at times because of it. I'm 21 and can't clothe myself sometimes
Following any specific plan: yes, MINE! Small portions, about 300 cal/meal, tons of dairy, beans, veggies and fruit. Some fish, minimal meat.
What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past:I'm determined to lose it. I am at a point where weight loss is more important than eating candy!
Anything else you would like to share with us: I believe in making my weightloss journey fun and enjoyable. I try not to stress out too much when I don't lose as quickly as I want or I gain a pound. I eat what I enjoy eating. If I don't like it, I'm not going to stick to it.
The FIRST challenge:
-Get to 175
-Exercise 3x/wk for 4 wks!
