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!

    Glad you went back to him and saw the errors of your ways. Seems like we always have to be on alert and on guard. Sorry it was a shock for your aha moment.
