Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: other people getting concerned and interfering

Following any specific plan: no, just walking as much as time allows and eating what I like in smaller portions.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I am not rushing the process, and more importantly, not engaging in any unhealthy behaviors to meet my goal. No purging, starving, diet pills, etc.

Anything else you would like to share with us:I have a history of anorexia and bulimia, so that is why I am emphasizing the healthy part. Actually, the balance between healthy and disordered is still a struggle but this site is helping me with that. I am seeing that many people both on here and in real life have trouble with keeping their dieting from becoming excessive whether or not they have had a full blown eating disorder, so I don't feel so alone in this.

Thanks guys!
