What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I don't just want to focus on losing pounds this time, I want to learn to listen to my body. Obviously, the quick fix fad diets never work... but there are lots of skinny people in the world that are not on permanent diets. They must have figured out how to listen to their bodies intuitively, to figure out when to stop eating, etc. I'd like to get to the same point.
Anything else you would like to share with us: a support system is so important when trying to lose weight... thanks for being there!
