My biggest obstacle is that I'm a night feeder. I love to snack at night while watching tv or reading.

My family's eating habits, unfortunately. Unhealthy food -- canned stuff, lack of greens, high calorie. I have to plan my meals outside of what they eat. I've tried to make food healthier for my mom, brother and sisters but they wouldn't have it :(

My newest big obstacle is that I have recently had braces put on my lower teeth. Finding things that I CAN eat that are also something that I WANT to eat is quite a challenge. I have P.E.S. (my own made up word for Picky Eater Syndrome).

My upcoming obstacle is preparing for 2 weeks of vacation, camping in Montana. Planning meals and snacks that will work for us in our suroundings.

I am really aiming to lose a pound or inch both weeks of vacation - Self Challenging is a good thing!

One of my biggest obstacles is not eating on a schedule. I have discovered if I eat about every 3 hours, just a little bit, I will stay within my calorie range. If i got for over 4 hours in between meals, I over eat and I continue to over eat for the rest of the day!

I'm here to get healthier just one day at a time!

I love food too and all kinds of it also. I make a plan to exercise but I don't get it in or don't do as much as I need to. Currently I am having trouble making at least my 15 minutes daily exercise.

Laziness. I can be honest with myself....I would rather get lost in a book or watch t.v. horizontal than work out. But I like the way I feel when I exercise. Once I get started, it takes injury to stop me so I just need to start again. Tomorrow I'll be hitting the gym for the first time in a year and praying my feet hold up.

Being on the go, not being able to eat at home. I am good Mon-Fri where I pack lunch to work and cook dinner. Sat-Sun when we are traveling from here to there and gone from the house for 8 hours is horrible!! Getting better at choosing the right things and only eating 3/4 of the serving but still hard on my calories and my fitness.

I'm in such a rut right now. The only reason I lost 4 pounds 2 weeks ago was because of starving. I didn't want to weigh myself last week for fear of how much I gained. I can't seem to get rid of this cycle...

In 4 years, I've lost 123 pounds. I should be hanging from a charm bracelet by now.

I want to start off by saying I feel fantastic after losing tons of weight and making healthy food choices.
My body doesn't seem to get the idea that I will not grow up and my mind will not get beyond that of an intelligent 30 year old.
I am 71 and do not feel it.

Okay, so you are wondering what the problem is...
I always want to keep up with the younger and fit gym goers.
I just started this lifestyle shift less than a year ago.
It will take time for all these changes to become a lifetime way of life.
In the meantime I will slow down and go gently thru the process.

It seems like binge eating and emotional eating are big. I must admit I have suffered this week too. Today is Thursday and it's been gray and raining since last Friday, definitely an emotional downer - doesn't it seem like when the skies are gray - everything else just seems to be so gloomy.

I've been doing a lot of inspirational reading - searching on #inspiration on Twitter for short inspirational bites (no pun intended).

I keep saying that I refuse to fall victim!

What do you all try to do when you hit that emotional wall? Any best practices out there?

FABULISINMN- I prefer strength training over cardio also. That's why I'm focusing more on inches/body fat % this time. I have no idea how much I weigh (I guesstimated when I signed up for SP) and am not concerned about pounds lost. I'm doing everything I can to make sure I don't discourage myself!

ANAJCM--i agree with you completely! It's so hard to stay motivated when you go to the gym EVERY day and work your butt off and nothing comes of it!

My truth: when I work out, I don't lose weight. I'm serious. The scale doesn't move. Why? Because I prefer weights over cardio.


Truth: I'm building muscle at the same time as burning fat, so the scale doesn't move per say. But I also notice my clothes are looser and I feel better.

It didn't come on over night and it isn't going to come off over night.

I know you can do it! Hang in there. You may not see the benefits right away, but you'll see it. Keep it up and you'll see it!

Fab.

If you want to see change, you need to make change.

Lack of motivation and impatience have always been my biggest obstacles. If after a week of watching everything I eat and working out consistently, I don't lose any weight, I start to think all my hard work is pointless. If I didn't lose any weight after going to the gym for 7 days, I can skip today right? And since I skipped yesterday and nothing has changed, I can skip again with the same results.

That's why I'm staying away from the scale as much as possible this time!!

Jena - I'm right there with you. Isn't it funny how fear of success (or failure) often stands in the way of our succeeding.

Dragonfly126,

I know that must be hard. When I was married, it was so hard - he loved to eat out. He kept saying he liked me the way I was - even if I wasn't happy with myself... He of course could drop weight just by drinking water for a day it seemed like.

Hopefully your hubby will eventually understand - I know that would be a difficult thing to argue over... emoticon

My biggest obstacle is my hubby. i know he means well. Does not want me to want for anything. Problem is he is a late nite snacker and is always trying to get me to eat something. I tell him over, and over when I say No, Thank you I mean NO THANK You! I do not want to argue about it, but sometimes we do and it just makes me feel so over whelmed.

ONE HOOP, ONE JUMP, ONE STEP AT A TIME IS ALL IT TAKES TO MELT THE FAT.

Biggest obstacle for me is my fear of going back in time when was 219 pounds, not feeling well, totally deconditioned and forgetting how good success feels.

I totally agree - stress and mindset are two very big challenges.

Fear of failure is another one for me. I'm convinced that I am going to overcome them in 2013! emoticon

Hi everyone, I am back after taking a few weeks off. I sensed I was obsessing too much about my weight. Guess what, I am not ready to go solo yet. I see my self as my obstacle. I realized i still need to use the tools, food tracking, measuring, & portion control, that helped me loose some of the weight.

I was shocked and went back to weigh again and again.
Yep... Two pound loss.

My biggest obstacle right now? A high calorie snack food that I have difficulty exercising portion control over when I bring it into my home. The solution? Don't bring it into my home! At least not for today....

My biggest obstacle is snacking and looking in the refrigerator when I am not hungry. In the last two days, I have kept my snacking under control. The weekend is coming up, hoping to continue.

My biggest obstacle is night time snacking. I'm EXHAUSTED when I get home from work and I do sooo little. It's a really hard thing to carry around this extra weight and when I get home I'm just depleted. I set small goals for myself, but usually by 7, I'm in front of the t.v. eating. Lots of times, I do make better choices, or just not eat at all, but teh times that I do I go way overboard.

My biggest obstacle is eating right! I love working out, but I know that's a small part of the weight loss journey! So far this week, I have been eating within my calorie range! However, I have to make sure I track everything I eat as well as being completely honest with myself! I want to continue to lose weight in addition to eating as clean as possible!

JENAE954: have you considered just starting slow? what about a quick walk around the block? I've found that on days I'm not motivated to exercise, I force myself to change into shorts and a T-shirt and put tennis shoes on. Then I say I'll walk around the block. Often times, I turn this walk into a much longer adventure/power walk around downtown and other areas of the city I don't spend a lot of time in - and walking is very good for you.

Also, have you considered just stretching while watching TV? I've found that if I start stretching, I start doing other strength training things and turn my TV-watching into a light workout... which is better than nothing at all, in my opinion :)

Do you have any ideas for portion control/how to remind myself to make better choices with regards to my diet?

Just take five minutes to regroup, and don't ever forget to make time for what makes you happy.
