I think dealing with people who don't understand my goals or journey. I had a friend tell me that he has never seen someone lose as much weight as I have and transform my body without outside help, but he also said he doesn't think I can lose much more because of my body type. Guess he has given me more motivation to keep going.

I can understand that, only people who have a goal in mind can understand! Keep up the good work!! =)

Sometimes for me, it is my lack of motivation. I really have to kick myself in the butt sometimes to make sure I go.

getting more fruits- I'm just not that big of a fan other than for bananas, apples or pears from a can.

Mindless snacking. I work night shift, and when I get tired I tend to just want to eat. And I'm always tired :(

My extreme lack of motivation.

Focus....which is a direct result of lack of time and too many other things to achieve between my kids/family time, work, coaching, and house. I feel like im always trying to achieve something and sometimes other achievements are more important that day or that week.

Finding balance.  I tend to go all out for 2-3 months, see dramatic results and then have a crazy relapse.  I know everyone  always says take it slow, don't change too much too fast but I find that incredibly difficult.  I've been pretty successful at keeping myself together so far this time around ... we will see.  Have to learn that I can't put myself on the back burner even when stressful things try to get in my way.

Personally for me it wasn't a challenge at all to lose the baby weight. I was determined, I had the right tools (which I am open to sharing if anyone is interested),, there was no TRY for me. My mentality was to go all the way! I stayed determined by being connected with like minded people, read postive books, magazines and so on.
