I looked at my feet today in sandals. Swollen feet and ankles. Last years loose size up trousers now digging in and restrictive. Face looks round on zoom meeting no matter the angle.
It's time to loose weight!! I just want this burst of realisation and motivation to last, as it hasn't for at least 18 months now.
What was your 'moment' that began your weight loss journey!! Please share, I'm in need of some inspirational stories

I had done slimming world in the past but put all
2.10 stone back on in 9 months. Do you know I didn't even have luxurious desserts within that or copious amounts of chocolate bars. Just extra portions of carbs, and a weekly takeaway. I started to joke that as I got older I'd have to be a non sugar person but eventually (August 1st 2020 started) I've lost 15lbs , got into overweight BMI, 9lbs from healthy weight BMI. The most marvelous thing is that I feel brilliant! You can never imagine skipping breakfast would not bother you but I love it. I believe I will be fit and chip away at tiny goals. Good luck

I started fast 800 by the 5.2 guy Michael Mosley. There are a lot of threads on here such as low carb boot camp. His accompanying recipe book by go wife is fab too. It's a new way of eating that I never could imagine working.

I weighed myself and was horrified. I bought the Fast 800 book after a very wise recommendation on here and haven’t looked back. I’ve lost 36lbs in 11 weeks and I’ve not felt this good in a long time. Good luck OP.

Lots of typos in my post, sorry. Above all, the moment was when I get sorry for me looking like I did! It was not "me". Had to choose to look like that or change. The later was easier!

Fear of being a teacher and morbidly obese. Knowing I won't be able to avoid COVID in schools.

Getting on for 4.5 stone now lost since March.

Being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, lost three stone and reversed the diabetes.
