Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Genetics and understanding how much I really should be eating.

Following any specific plan: I like to joke that I follow the poverty diet + manual labor workout. But no, not really.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I had to change my mindset completely. In the past I had an all or nothing view of weight loss. I thought that if I was never going to be skinny, what was the point of even bothering? I finally came to realize that even if it's not my ideal weight, it's still better to be at 180 than 200.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Even though it's cliche, I've found that weight loss really IS about a lifestyle change.
