What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: Honestly? Probably not much, except that maybe I'm more fed-up now than usual? I can no longer brush it off with "Oh, I'm still a teenager, but soon I'll magically morph into an adult with responsible habits and this will all take care of itself."

Anything else you would like to share with us: I've never participated in an online weight-loss forum before, so I'm hoping this might be something of an X-factor for me
