    What was your turning point?

    Hi everyone
    Thought id start a thread for us to share what/when we decided enough was enough and it was time to lose weight!
    I thought it might be a good reference point when motivation is low, to help spur us all on and remind why we are doing this! I have a little mental list but curious to know others.. Im just a bit nosy
    For me, I was sick of looking at a wardrobe full of clothes that I couldn't wear. Having to buy something new to wear out as nothing else fitted. Feeling bigger than all my friends. When your undies feel too tight and dig in! Haha. For my 21st birthday party i reached my target weight, would love to get near that again for my 24th!

    I came back from first year at uni, knowing I'd put on a bit of weight with takeaways and alcohol etc, but I didn't really know how much. My mum asked me if I wanted to come to SW with her, but I thought she was being a bit ridiculous because "I hadn't put on that much weight". Then bearing this in mind I had a look at my pictures on FB and you could see a gradual weight gain. I'm just glad I agreed to go with her and turn it around or else I dread to think where I might have been now

    My turning point was when I realised how unhealthy I really was. I didn't even eat much but what I did eat was awful junk, mostly ready meals or pizza.

    I know what you mean about feeling healthier Revy. I actually enjoy my fruit salads now! Still coming round to all the veg tho :/ lol.
    Its scary the way it creeps on isn't it Becky?! Ive put on 2stone in as many years- people never believe me when I tell them how much but its just slowly inched its way up. With uni ill bet you're so busy concentrating on everything else too.
    That is sad his-beau. Not one at all? You could make it a mini target xx

    Mine was when I looked in the mirror and couldn't believe how large my thighs had got. They'd obviously been on the large side for a while but I just didn't realise it. I wish I'd have measured them as almost 2st down now and it would be interesting to see how much has come off them!

    Wow well done on your loss!
    I always mean to measure as they say the difference isn't always on the scale but forget :/
    it could still be worthwhile doing it tho!

    That's a good idea for a mini target! Thank you, I liked some of my wedding photos but so many holidays I've taken pics and not had my pic taken or hated all the ones I'm in, sick of feeling like that all the time x

    I was rushed to Hospital in the middle of the night believing I was having a heart attack. Very quickly after arriving they discovered that it was actually a muscle tear in the chest and was in no way health/weight related. I got a clean bill of health (they ran various cardiac tests to be sure and it's in peak condition) but lying in A&E with machines hooked up to your bulbous chest thinking your heart has given out is a hell of a motivation to lose weight.

    The problem was for a month afterwards, it hurt to breath, let alone exercise so I actually put weight on afterwards, it's wasn't until I was off the painkillers that I joined SW

    I was sat on my daughters bed folding washing when I caught a glimpse of myself in her full length mirror that was propped against the wall.I burst into tears I looked bad enough stood up but generally just look at my face but to see yourself sat down with rolls of fat everywhere & huge thighs it was horrible & actually didn't want to leave the house for a while def shocked me to think that enough was enough, stop fart assing around with your 6lb off then 6lb on the following week & lose the weight for good!! It makes me shudder just thinking about that image in the mirror x

    For me, I'd put on a lot of weight after getting married then within 6 months I was pregnant so that was my excuse to eat anything I wanted and I mean.ANYTHING! So the weight crept on by the time my son was nearly 18 months I had gained over 2 stone since the day I got married. I was using the excuse that I'd just had a baby so I was going to be a little heavier.
    My husband had been slowly loosing weight over the last 6 months counting calories. I tried but would go a little over my daily and just think 'sod it I'll start again tomorrow '.
    My real turning point was when my husband and I sat down to discuss having another baby and he said I needed to lose weight first. I had been ill with my first which wasn't weight related but if I had been a little thinner it may not have been so bad. We want to start trying at the beginning of next year so I have to get to goal weight by NYE.
    Lost 12 pounds so far with another 3 and a half stone to go.

    Sorry if I've rambled on.
