God created us all in unique way I don't think he would of giving us the many challenges we face today if he didn't think we couldn't handle it.
Makes all our hard work worth it and so much more rewarding.

My question is what are some of the challenges you face while reaching your Goal weight?

Sorry I didn't realize all my message wasn't there after time management. But after about a month ago when I realized my heavy breathing was getting worst. I went into the doctors the next day.

Instead I chose realistic goals, stuck to my plan and was patient, knowing I wouldn't get to my goal in a month but over a few months. Healthy eating and working out got me where I wanted to be, slow and steady. 

I know small children, in particular when they have additional needs, can make time management a struggle, but be patient and stick with it and you'll get to where you want to be!
