Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Snacking. I love snacking and candy.
Following any specific plan: My friend is with Beach Body and he wrote me up a meal plan, but I was successful on LAWL and am going to start following that more now that I''m motivated and have already started the process.
What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have a better attitude towards it and I have incentives lined up (boyfriend is taking me to Hawaii when I feel ready to wear a swimsuit).
Anything else you would like to share with us: It definitely helps to have someone who loves you and supports you no matter what you choose, but wants you to be happy and always encourages you without putting you down. I have a great support group who don't get mad when I slip, but encourage me when I feel like I'm wasting my time.
