What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Recently, I was at a wedding with all my college friends (hadn't seen them in about 3-5 years) and they had all lost weight and looked amazing. I felt like the fat one in the group and I hate to admit it, but that thought was at the back of my mind the entire time. I had a great time but never want to feel that way about myself again. I owe myself better.
Anything else you would like to share with us: I enjoy working out and being active but hate the feeling that I have to do it.
