Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: An unsupportive family and low income. It's cheaper to eat like crap.
Following any specific plan: Lifestyle change for me and my family. Making healthier meal choices for the whole family including more veggies and fruit, less prepackaged meals, less take out/fast food, drink water, moderation, etc.
What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I just have a good feeling. I have been fully engulfed in it for the last 2 days and it feels so good. I am learning a lot! I am finding support and trying to ignore negativity. Instead of making excuses I am making the right choices. Today for example, the Wii wouldn't play my workout DVD so I tried the Wii Fit and the balance board was out of batteries! So I took my happy butt to the store and I bought batteries, came right back and did 41 minutes of Wii Fit! Every other time I would have given up.
Anything else you would like to share with us: I am quite excited to be here. I have no goal weight because I wanna be healthy and comfortable. If that's a size 16, I'm okay with that. If that is 150, even better! Anyways.
