    I cut out as much added sugar from my food as possible. Goal is to keep it under 10/g per day on average. Helped cut out a lot of "empty" calories and I feel reduces my overall appetite.

    I started a group called Pineapple if you want to check it out and join to find those social & mental emotional fitness partners from all walks of life. it's about getting to overall health- physical, social, mental/emotional. Finding the perfect continuum balance on a daily basis.

    I understand why you might be discreet on the open Community.

    May I suggest that other MFPers might want to do an internet search for "Pineapple lifestyle", before joining the group, to get a more complete picture of this approach?

    Hands down for me is to accurately log everything. Which is why this is my third tour of duty. After I reach target I stop logging at some point. Then I gradually gain 5-10 and then start again. I've accepted this is the way it works for me.

    The trigger for me was learning to listen to my body

    My trigger was when I decided to weigh myself on the scale near the end of March and found out I gained 50 Ibs during the pandemic :#

    In my case my wife sent me for diabetes tests and I am just over the edge for type 2. In anticipation of that I already started a free health and fitness programme near where I live called Counterweight. We are 6 weeks in and I've lost 23 pounds so far through diet and exercise. Calorie logging has been a helpful revelation for me. A fitness watch has also been useful, plus being weighed each week at my group sessions is motivational.

    I decided to overcome what I could from my family history and have a goal to live to 80. It didn't make sense to me to see doctors and ask them to help me with that goal while I'm overweight. It's what I can control vs my genetics.

    A couple things did, I was unhappy with my weight gain for a long time but what really kicked my butt to actually put the work in was not fitting in my favourite skirts. I love my clothing and my skirts are typically bought from unique little shops, there is no going back to buy a bigger size. I was distrot and decided enough was enough... I'm getting back in those clothes again!

    OMG that's my story (almost)
