Everyone is different as to when the moment hit them when "enough is enough".
I cared for long time - and I saw my weight slowly creeping up month after month.
And month after month I wanted to do something about it. Every time I tried on too tight pants, or saw my tummy bulging, I'd sigh...and say "tomorrow."
I cared, sure...but not enough? I mean, it bothered me...but...
Then one day...I had it - my "Ah Ha" moment. I saw myself naked in front of a full length mirror. Whoa.
That's when it hit me. I said to myself "This is %^&&** bullsh*t, man. WTF have you done to yourself?"
And that's when I got jiggy with it, cause I really, really cared.
The only way it worked for me (doing it!!) was starting slow - but what really helped me the most was, learning. I kinda looked at it like a job that I needed to learn about. Know why? My job was to lose the weight!!
So, I came here and learned about calories, and carbs, and good fat, and protein, and fiber, etc. And the more I learned, the more I figured it out - while slowly incorporating my new knowledge into my life.
Lol...I've no idea what the point of this all is. I think, maybe, that people want it...but they need that one time where it clicks in their head...when they say to themselves "enough is enough?"
Well, whatever you do - start small. Don't look for any crazy fad diet, either (or cleanses, or fasting, or pills). They do not work. Slowly work yourself into your range, slowly start drinking more water, slowly start replacing junk food with healthy veggies, fruits, etc.
Whatever you do...always remember: It's the always the tortoise who wins the race....never the hare :)
ETA: If there are typo's I don't care, lol.
The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.
