WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGES: I am a binge eater. I don't know how to portion so I avoid until I feel deprived, binge and start all over again.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I've been on and off the diet since 2008. I feel my best when I am on plan. I am also making exercise in some form a priority this time. No excuses!
