Starting Date of Weightloss Journey: 02/01/2012

Starting Weight: 255

Present Weight: 252

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: My addiction to fast food and general lethargy caused by low self-esteem.

Following any specific plan: Mostly I've made my own diet plans with the help of my lovely lady, but overall just working out every day that I can and counting my calories is the name of the game.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: This time I actually feel confident that I can do something and I'm taking steps to cementing that decision. I've always been really self-conscious about my weight to the point that I couldn't talk about it without crying or otherwise becoming emotional. I just wasn't happy! I'm hoping with support I can finally get to a place where I can look into a mirror and smile at what I see.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I have hypothyroidism as well and I think that contributes to my slow metabolism, but I'm taking medicine for that now in addition to everything else. Here's hoping this time is the time it all goes well!
