    Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I love eating out with friends!!! Going for martinis and oysters and dinners...it is one of my favorite things to do. It has been very hard to miss those dinners or to not indulge if i do attend.

    Following any specific plan: Was strict IP for the first couple months, but found it too difficult/restrictive because I am a vegetarian. I now do something similar to the IP but I allow myself cheese, nuts, avocados, olives and a few other high fat things, occasionally. I was unhappy living on eggs and salad every day!

    What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I don't know. Something just clicked, I guess. I hope it stays clicked and doesn't click back!!

    Off topic: what do you all think of a 175 goal weight? I have never been under 175 probably since I was 16...and I was a pretty thin 16 year old, a lifeguard and wore size 8's and 10's. I have relatively wide bone structure, and will always have large boobs and hips no matter how much i weigh. But according to my BMI, at 175 i'd still be considered "overweight"...I cannot imagine being skinnier than that. What do you all think? Anyone else here around that height/weight? Do you guys put much stock in the BMI?

    Thanks everybody!! xoxoxo
