    Hi All! Please add me so we can share in motivation and moral support! Curious to hear your stories should you care to share, privately or publicly.

    I'm just starting my weight loss journey (again). Been ages since I even tried due to having a baby then having very bad anemia and related health issues. Have 100+ lbs to lose and a lot to overcome both mentally and physically after letting myself get super sedentary and out of shape. Lots of contributing factors in life has made this path of least resistance easier than getting healthy including family issues, loss, finances, depression, yadda yadda. However, I take full responsibility for my current weight and looking to do the best I can to get back on track. I think the tipping point has been realizing that I've developed sleep apnea and that the apnea is likely the cause of much of my exhaustion and fatigue, not just the anemia and lifelong insomnia which I'd been attributing it to. Basically I've eaten myself into a position where I am too fat to breathe at night! Worse, it likely causes further weight gain in addition to the other issues. So if I don't climb out of this, I'll just keep gaining weight and feeling too tired to exercise and eat food for energy and so on. Also, having fat get in the way when I try to do basic things is pretty humbling.

    Spent most of my life not obese and in my 20s and most of 30s was 125-150lbs, ran regularly, did yoga almost every day, etc. I was also a vegetarian for over a decade and reasonably clean eater for much of that. So I know what it's like to be healthy but boy... my lifestyle is like night and day from that now. Seems like a huge uphill battle to make myself exercise when just walking a block or two makes me breathless and just a little exercise makes my back hurt and muscles burn. Going from basically binge eating tons of junk food and ice cream to counting calories and cutting sugar seems horrifying right now! But I've done it before so theoretically it's possible!

    Currently looking to just do a basic CICO plan but been lurking on /r/keto for a while and very curious about trying keto or low carb diet for the first time. Also interested in intermittent fasting. Very addicted to sugar and carbs though - help!

    Lots more to say but this is just a introduction thread, so hi! Any motivation or tips for a 42yo tech freelancer, woman with a toddler and general slacker, send em my way!! :)

    Add me fit buddies!
    Let's get motivated!!
    Currently over 200lbs, lost 26lbs so far since i've started AGAIN. Workout 6-7 days a week, 75mins cycling, abdominal calisthenics, arm toning, kettlebells.
    No it wasn't easy to be active at first, but I felt motivated to make a change. The workouts get easier the more you do. I definitely have more energy. Feel free to add me, or inbox me with questions <3
