Log everything I eat and all the exercise that I do to make sure that I have a nice caloric deficit. In theory 3500 calories = 1 lb of fat. So if you burn 3500 more calories than you eat you should lose 1lb of weight. I also drink a lot of water. 100 oz per day. I have given up soda and other drinks, yes, even diet ones. I try to eat as much fresh raw foods as possible but know that you can't just eat apples & bananas because they are fruit and good for you, they are still high in carbs and calories.
Biggest hurdles? Probably still having all the junk foods in the house for my hubby and the boys. My sons don't have weight issues and I honestly believe in them eating healthy (which they do) but I don't restrict them from some sugary or fattening snacks. I want them to know how to live well and have a splurge sometimes. They seem to understand that you can't just eat junk food. And they even say that it upsets their stomache to eat fried foods now.
