When you have a lot of weight to lose, it means playing the long game. And during that time, you'll face challenges.

Make a grocery list together, even if you're cooking separately. Stay out of bulk warehouse stores, Albers says.

The oversized items can invite overeating. Support from a group can help you lose more weight than doing it alone. You'll gain perspective, encouragement, tips -- even a little competition, if that's the kind of thing that gets you motivated.
