I've had many starts and stops and many of those I need to lose weight moments... and have gradually changed my eating habits. My most recent one for needing to get myself in action was a glimpse of myself in the mirror and my wedding pictures coming back. The picture of me dancing with my father did it. I realized that I was even bigger than my father and decided that I did not want all the health problems he has. He is 58 and has high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, arthritis, and congestive heart failure. I could see myself heading down that same path and decided that I didn't want to go there. Plus, I'm tired of being the fat girl.
In all ways acknowledge Him, and He shall make your path straight ~Proverbs
Worrying is like a rocking chair... gives you something to do, but gets you no where!
If you want something you've never had, you'll have to do something you've never done. �Dave Ramsey
Food network... an informative cooking channel or porn for dieters?
For me, it was a couple of years ago at Christmas. I had been 21 for around 6 months, and I was a senior in college. All my family got together, and my cousin that I hadn't seen in a while saw me and said "Whoa, that freshman 15 really caught up with you, huh?". That was what made me realize that it wasn't in my mind, I did gain a lot of weight.
What was the "tipping point" that caused you to change your fitness/eating habits? Was it something drastic (a comment someone made, a wedding, something medical, kids, etc), or was it something that developed over time?
