Less than 3 years ago... I was Woohooo-ing that I'd lost 35.4 pounds and 27 inches.
On Feb 26, 2013... I saw I doctor I hadn't seen in 3 years who told me I'd gained 40... yes 40 pounds in 3 years.
I knew I'd gained weight... and I'd have doctors tell me I'd gained a few pounds since I last saw them... but few pounds here... a few pounds there... it didn't seem like much. I knew I'd gained weight. I didn't feel well most of the time, due to my inactivity and extra baggage, I was often winded, my asthma kicked in full force... I knew I had to do something, but I just couldn't find the motivation... until that doctor said "YOU'VE GAINED 40 POUNDS IN 3 YEARS". It was the wakeup call I needed.
I went home and immediately signed back into SparkPeople. I reset my page to start fresh. Unfortunately I can't find a way to delete my old pictures.
I've been tracking my food... walking everyday... and just paying more attention in general.
Anyway it's three and a half weeks later and I'm down 11 pounds!
