    I had Gallbladder surgery on 5/3/21 and was reading during recovery that some people gain weight after the removal. I said to myself, "Great! Just what I need. Gain weight!" So I was very careful and dropped about 8 lbs in 11 days. I was reading up on Keto during that time and started 5/14/21 and MFP the same day. I've been losing since!

    Intermittent fasting. Fast for 18 to 20 hours then very low carb during a 4 to 6 hour feeding window.

    What triggered or motivated me to lose weight was how I felt- lousy, uncomfortable, unhealthy. Lots of aches and pains. I started Monthers Day 2020 and reached a good weight range in March 2021- losing 55 lbs.
    tracking my food, exercising and walking daily ( up to 4 miles a day now) and being more active in general. I feel fantastic most of the time. In maintenance mode- I still have to do the same things to keep myself on track.

    1) blood work showed borderline blood sugar number closing in on pre-diabetic. This was the biggest wake up call.
    2) Quit drinking all alcohol (was a beer drinker)
    3) Started tracking food
    4) Started walking 1 mile daily now up to 4-5 miles

    These were main motivational factors in order of biggest motivators. I’ve gained back a few lbs after stopping Noom for awhile and need to get back on track. Got sick of tracking everything; felt too mechanical. Still walking 4-5 miles at least every other day often every day and still not drinking. Good luck to everyone, though, it’s not luck but knowledge and discipline 😀

    Learning what macro nutritions were (there is a lot of misinformation or over simplification about them. Carbs in particular)

    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.
