Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: realizing I needed to loose and getting in the habit of working out
Following any specific plan: i watch my caloric intake and make sure to eat only good foods and the right portions. i also use slim-fast and work out regularly.
What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I've changed the way I eat, weigh in every week, and work out at least 5 days a week. Before I never changed my diet and would work out maybe twice a week with no weigh ins.
Anything else you would like to share with us: I am so excited to be loosing this much weight. The biggest thing so far for me has been my emotions and sleeping patterns. I use to have lots of highs and lows in emotions and could never get to sleep before 4am and would sleep till 2pm! Now I always have energy and am always happy, I also maintain a normal sleeping pattern, its never hard to wake up!
