Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Keeping myself motivated, which I find hard while doing it alone.

Following any specific plan: Currently researching and trying different methods than I have tried in the past. Hoping by joining an online support group I will get over the hurdle of continued motivation.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I'm reaching out to strangers for advice/support.

Anything else you would like to share with us: Three years ago I was able to lose 60 lbs. I was 20 lbs from my goal weight when I lost my job to cutbacks and had to move back home. I was devastated and went back to my original weight (plus a pound) in a years time. I am still trying to pick up the pieces and although I don't have control over other aspects of my circumstances, I do have control over my weight/health and am ready to do something about it.
