When I started to feel like crap all the time and had multiple palpitations daily as well as a couple panic attacks with scary symptoms (cold sweat, racing heart, tight chest.) Also, my blood pressure crept up to 170/90, sometimes 178/110 when stressed. Cardiologist said my heart sounded fine and prescribed me blood pressure medication.
That was 4 months ago, and so far, I have lost 76lb.

I had a moment of realisation in a dress shop fitting room last week.
I realised I would need to go up another dress size and buy a whole new wardrobe...again. At 217 lbs starting weight, I am now 2 entire dress sizes away from my beautiful "normal me size" wardrobe.
I already had to buy a temporary, limited options wardrobe when I went up a size last year at around 190 lbs. Now I've gone up a second time. I keep very close control of my budget so this goes against everything that is reasonable!! Point blank, I refuse to pay to buy a wardrobe another size larger. It's a stupid waste of money and I won't do it!
2 years ago I was in great shape. I used my Fitbit and it kept me on track. I connected with others and we did challenges together. Then I took a job that doesn't allow people to wear a smart watch or have a cell phone in the office... it all started going downhill from there. I lost the connections I had to keep me motivated and fitness took a back seat in my life.
I'm a person who needs to exercise to maintain a healthy weight. Diet doesn't get it done, I need to move my body and compensate for my sedentary job. So I am hoping, day by day with access to my phone in the evenings, I can use MFP to keep me going, even without a smart watch. 3 days in and so far so good

I was 190 lbs and I’m 5’2”. My age is 42. I am down to 175! Woohoo! I want to be at 150. I was afraid of my knees buckling from too much weight. My lower back hurt from the 20 pounds I gained in a year! I want to be able to move and breathe effortlessly. I don’t want to physically hurt or risk dying from overeating and not getting up and moving enough.

I was into dancing, and suddenly I couldn't bend like I used to because there were rolls of fat in the way. 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.

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