Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: I don't even know, there have been so many "restarts". I think February, 2011 was when I started counting calories, so I'll go with that.
Starting Weight: I think I was around 230 in February
Present Weight: 221.3
Goal Weight: Shorter term - 170... ultimately 135-145, although I have a difficult time imagining myself being that small
Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: My tendency to be really self-defeating, I'm my own worst enemy. Also binging, I love food tooo much
Following any specific plan: Just counting calories
What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm trying to lose the mindset that I "deserve" treats, and accept that losing weight is going to mean sacrificing things sometimes
