Default which part of your diet has been the hardest for you?

I am just curious. Was the beginning the hardest? Or keeping motivated? Or dealing with the reasons behind your overeating? Or maybe none of it was hard for you?

Just wondering.

For me it's exercise. I don't like it. Motivation, commitment, the reasons I would binge, etc. has been fairly easy for me to deal with. I'm good at losing, but I can honestly say I've never maintained in my life. I've always either been putting on weight or losing it. So the road ahead, maintenance after the weight is gone, is the bit that makes me the most nervous.

For the most part I haven't had a huge problem. Except with maybe sabotagers and unavoidable restaurant outings. It isn't that I go off plan during these outings it's the stress of trying to plan, trying to find out where we are going and praying they have some sort of nutritional guide online so I can find something within my calorie range.

Getting started was definitely the hardest part for me! I was not even sure what I should eat and had strong cravings for sweets. I am addicted to sugar. Life got a lot easier after the first month.

My biggest challenge so far has been right now. I am down to weight that I am super happy about and feel great...but still want to be lower. I have a few good days, then a bad one which cancels out my good days...so I have just been maintaining forever!!!

I think starting and getting into the right mindset was the hardest part for me. I have to admit though, once I reach my goal, i'm scared about the maintaining part.

I think deciding on a goal weight has been pretty hard. But hey I want to be perfectly honest here, the hardest hard part of this whole journey thing has been how I am treated by my female friends. Most all of them were super supportive until I reached right around 230ish. I was still fatter than most of them, but not embarrassing to be seen with...lol Once I entered the threshold of the 200's and below most of my female friends have become very standoffish. I get the "you're becoming anorexic" or "you need to be careful about getting too thin" comments on a regular basis. Only a few of them will go shopping with me anymore. It is sad. Men on the other hand...well, lets just say that men are men.

Making the decision to change my life - forever. Once I committed to making a lifestyle change, everything else fell into place.

That's not to say that there weren't bumps along the way. But, looking back over the journey, making the committment was the hardest part - by far.

the unavoidable eating. I'm fine when I'm in control but I'm not so good at random restaurant eating or holding back when there is food around I dont need.

Getting motivated to do it all over again --and really stick with it --was very hard. Lots of false starts over the past few years where I didn't stay committed for very long, with lots of little losses and regains.

This time getting started was the hardest.

In past past the beginning was easy and staying motivated was hard (clearly, since I did not stick with it in the past).

For me, it was not eating all the junk food at night that I love. I also need to just get in the groove of exercise; it takes about a week or two to form a good habit like exercising every day, and it seems that that coupled with dieting can make me extra hungry.

Whats hardest for me is sticking to the plan on weekends or when I go out to eat! I know what I should and shouldn't eat but, when im out with friends its usually pizza or pub food. Soooo bad!

For me it was all the snacking- with time I have stopped muching all night I also read some books on food addiction and that really helped me.
