It takes hard work. There are victories followed by setbacks, lots of ups and also plenty of downs. The whole process can be frustrating and so tough to stick with.

Write to us at healthstories@buzzfeed.com with answers to ANY (or all!) of the questions below for a chance to be featured in a future BuzzFeed post.

• How did you beat the plateaus or bounce back from setbacks?

• What things surprised you along the way?

• What psychological blocks (to your own progress) did you encounter?

• What do people who haven't been on a journey like yours not understand or always get wrong?
