    Before I went to basic (a long time ago), I was at my highest weight. I lost about 50lbs, but I ended up on a limited PT profile. After my med board I started gaining all the weight back. I stepped on the scale recently, and I had hit a new heaviest weight. Not exactly the record I was looking to set for myself. I was telling my boyfriend (who lost weight using MFP) about it, and he's now helping me with my weight loss while trying to lose his last few pounds himself.

    I can no longer get on my horse without a mounting block because I'm not quick enough anymore!

    I was into dancing, and suddenly I couldn't bend like I used to because there were rolls of fat in the way. :D My double chin made falling asleep on long car journeys (passenger, obv!) more uncomfortable. And all the clothes I'd been happily wearing for over a decade no longer fitted, and it's hell on earth trying to find trousers and jeans that fit my new shape.

    Whenever I burn popcorn....and then I make another bag...while still eating the previously burnt popcorn. I was like.....whaaaat am I doing! Also hit the age of 33 and decided I want to be one of those middle aged people that still get ID'ed :)

    33 isn't middle-aged.

    33 isn't middle-aged.

    Unfortunately, for many that don't take care of themselves, it is.

    Honestly, I just woke up one day and decided to love my health as much as I loved the rest of me.

    I had started losing weight before I got pregnant with my oldest child, but I had never noticed how much I had gained until I realized my delivery weight was the same as my first weigh in after I decided to start eating healthier. Before that I have no clue how much I weighed because I wouldn't go near a scale. That was my biggest wake up call, to think that at some point I was heavier than I was at 9 months pregnant (edited to add: right before delivery I was 235lbs)

    I am only 17 and bigger than all my classmates. I get made fun of a lot for it, ever since 3rd grade. I am tired of that three letter word written in invisible ink on my head: FAT.

    MFP is for 18+ so beware. FatSecret allows users 13 years old or older.

    When I stopped wearing scrubs and realized none of my “real” clothes fit anymore. Have to get my life together!

    I lost 16 pounds last year and gained nearly all of it back since November last year. I don't want to be heavier than my fiance anymore and I want to look good in a bikini again.

    I hate seeing photos of myself. I accept that I am heavier and that it is my own fault, but it never quite hits me how big I am until I see pictures.

    Joined back in 2017 but never really kept on track. I never had a weight problem growing up so its HARD to accept my new reality. I weigh more now than I did 9 months pregnant. I have to get healthier! My husband just got some bad results back from his latest health screening for work so we're going to try to do better on food. I need to do better on simply moving as a I have a very sedentary desk job.

    I have a trip coming up. Disneyworld with my kids and I want to be prepared to keep up with them. But also, because at a certain weight, I can feel it. Which is around 260, Sure enough old effects started happening again: thirsty, out-of-breath, clothes too tight. Plus this summer, might include some interviews and I want to look my best.
