Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: An unsupportive family and low income. It's cheaper to eat like crap. :(

Following any specific plan: Lifestyle change for me and my family. Making healthier meal choices for the whole family including more veggies and fruit, less prepackaged meals, less take out/fast food, drink water, moderation, etc.

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I just have a good feeling. I have been fully engulfed in it for the last 2 days and it feels so good. I am learning a lot! I am finding support and trying to ignore negativity. Instead of making excuses I am making the right choices. Today for example, the Wii wouldn't play my workout DVD so I tried the Wii Fit and the balance board was out of batteries! So I took my happy butt to the store and I bought batteries, came right back and did 41 minutes of Wii Fit! Every other time I would have given up.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I am quite excited to be here. I have no goal weight because I wanna be healthy and comfortable. If that's a size 16, I'm okay with that. If that is 150, even better! Anyways.

Following any specific plan: Weight Watchers, doing 30 day shred

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: This is the biggest I have ever been and it is literally depressing me. I have always been able to lose the weight and right after I had my son I lost 34 pds and had only gained 14 during pregnancy but somewhere over the last 2 years I allowed myself to gain it back.

Anything else you would like to share with us: I don't guess. :)

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: Get bored with exercise or using excuses like interviews to give up on exercise and dieting

Following any specific plan: 1200-1400 calories/day, exercise 5-6 X per week, strength training

What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: In the past I have lost weight because I wanted a guy to love me more or be thrilled that I was smaller. This is the first time I'm losing weight for myself. My boyfriend is completely ok with my current size, but I want to get healthy so that I won't have problems when I'm older. My mom was morbidly obese and after gastric bypass and now being just over her ideal body weight, she has hypertension, borderline diabetes, and is a survivor of breast cancer. She also has chronic back pain with several surgeries, knee pain with resultant surgery, and GERD. All of these diseases are associated with being overweight or obese, and I don't want to live like she does because she was overweight or obese nearly all her life. Now is the time to prevent these preventable diseases and just happen to look better in a two-piece this summer. :-)
