For me, it was seeing myself in some vacation pictures. It was always on my mind before, but I think that was the straw that broke the camel's back!

Working torward a happier me!

For me, it was realizing I would be a mother someday. I need to get myself right first before I have my kids so they have a good example of eating to follow.

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.

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?
