My new biggest challenge is realizing I can't do this journey alone. Just like I need my support team to be successful as a single parent. The same is true for incorporating healthy lifestyle changes.

That is hard. My daughter can be a picky eater as well and like you, I don't have the time or money to cook separate meals, but I did decide to always make a side of veggies with whatever I'm cooking whether she will eat them or not. Then I load up half my plate with veggies and then the other half with the meat and potato or noodles or whatever I'm cooking and I eat on 7 inch plates. I found this habit had lead my daughter back to veggies. At first, she didn't eat them, just me. Then she took like a scoop and now she's eating a couple scoops so I give her choices of veggie and she gets to pick what we are having. If she doesn't want any veggies, then I make them for me. Might be something to try.

My biggest challenge is preparing a meal that is healthy for me but appeals to my 15 yr old picky eater. I LOVE my fruits n veggies but my son is a steak n potato kid. He refuses to try new things, won't eat the same or nearly the same thing twice in a week, and forget seasonings or sauces. If I could get him to eat more healthy meals instead of frozen meals, red meats, "snacky" foods (pop tarts, chips, etc) I could stay on track but cooking separate meals doubles my grocery bill so I have to compromise to please him.

My biggest challenge is to not eat candy and other junk food when I'm stressed.

my biggest challenge right now is eating healthy when the rest of my family doesn't.. (dad & brother) I try to buy things that will be healthy for me and my daughter but sometimes that means making 3 different meals for dinner. Dad is stuck in this continuious loop of fried chicken, pork chops, hamburgers with fries of course.. nothing healthy in his ideal meals... my brother will eat a bit of variety and I've slowly changed somethings like our spaghetti sauce which he loves.. but I have to make it without him seeing the mushrooms and seasonings going into it lol....
my mom wants to eat healthy but being on a budget like most people we have to fix something that everyone will eat.. so it's mainly what dad wants...

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

My biggest challenge is trying to keep food interesting for my 11 yr old daughter. She gets tired of eating chicken and fish, but when I make something she likes it's not necessarily good for my diet

I agree...shopping, cooking and preparing the food is the biggest challenge for me. I don't have enough time to do everything I need to do. I'm trying to figure out what I can eliminate, but what can that possibly be?

preparing food consistently would be mine. now that i am a single mom, working a distance from home, AND trying to get back into working out..by the time i get home in the evening i have to decide..do i cook? heat up a microwave meal (which i try to limit) give her a bath? spend time with her? clean up? and the list goes on.

i can plan ahead some days but when i get thrown off track..im OFF

There is so much right now. Give up the sweets, drink at least 8 glasses of water and a lot more.
