Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: emotional eating....I've always used food as my bestie, b/c it was always there for me during my millions of different emotions.

Following any specific plan: planning & sticking to a daily exercise routine & calorie counting or maybe weight watchers...mainly watching what & how much I eat

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I have health issues like - daily headaches/migraines, irregular cycle since it started, & I don't like needles of ANY kind so I won't go to the doctor or hospital b/c I'm afraid they'll say I have Diabetes & need to do the shots. ;-/ Sooo, I have to do something to prevent or possibly reverse this madness ASAP!

Anything else you would like to share with us: I'm a VIRQUARIUS diva trying to bring her sexy back for her wedding night (whenever that may be) can be EXTRA FIERCE....Ow! hahaha (if you didn't catch that, hit me up by pm & I'll put you up on it. lol)

I also have an important incentive for weight loss this time. The last time I went to the doctor my fasting glucose and cholesterol were both borderline high so I need to do something about that.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I know that I need to do this if I ever want to have children. I have tried a lot of diets and none have really worked but a friend that was on Herbal Magic did so amazing that I knew I had to do it. I am ready to do this.

I am going to make sure that there is NO junk in the house and he is ok with that.

I think this board will be a great asset and will help to get me where I want to be. All of the girls seem to know where I am comming from and I will not have to feel embarrased to ask questions becasue I know someone else probably has the same one!
