6. What has been most challenging about maintaining a weight loss (now or in the past)?

What is always the most challenging is when I am in a situation where things are not under my control. By this I mean, I can control what I bring into my house, I can control what I bring for lunch and what food I have access to most of the time. Unfortunately, many, many people don't think about food as fuel or where it comes from in general, so when there is a celebration or a social event I find it more difficult to resist the temptation of sweets (my biggest weakness). I have gotten better at pre-planning social outings to restaurants by looking at menu on-line, choosing ahead of time and not varying from my plan. Parties and family events are the hardest. I also struggled through a recent vacation which I found difficult to prepare for. But I don't vacation often and it was very active so I did okay. These things will always be struggles and unless you become a hermit you just have to figure a way to plan for them or develop the will power to stay away from the off plan items.
