Question What would you say to your once heavier self?

Thought this type of post might be helpful for some inspiration, both for people just starting out and those of us who have been at this for a while!

I would LOVE to have known that it was actually possible for me to lose weight. Never having tried, I just automatically assumed I couldn't... and I could never have imagined how much better I feel mentally and physically, even though I'm not at goal yet.

So, share away: What are some words of wisdom you would share with your heaviest self? :
Starting Weight (05/31/11): 248.0 | Goal #1 (hit 05/31/12): 178.0 | Goal #2 (hit 09/23/12): 165.0 | Goal #3 : 148.0?

So not a 20 something, but my words of wisdom would be, conquer this in your twenties . Don't wait til your forties like I did - you have your whole life in front of you - take it with both hands- embrace it and live it in a body that you are happy with x

Restart 7.1.15- Am going to re-do this

This may get some rage but what I would say is:

I won't sit here and pretend I didn't know what I was doing to myself. everything I ate knowing I shouldn't.

I'm just so glad she's gone. forever.

I would say "it doesn't matter if you're not doing anything different than your friends and you are more than 100 pounds heavier than them. God didn't give you the ability to eat crap when you're young and not be morbidly obese, stop acting like a victim about it, and do something about it!!!!!!!" But I honestly don't think I could have done much about it in high school, would have been nice though!

Remaining Mini-Goals: 199: [] 189:[] 179: []
169: [] 162: (100lbs lost) [] 159: (going to see surgeon/reevaluation) []

I'm with CaramelKitty on this one,

"Suck it up Princess and start taking care of yourself. It's not that clothes designers and stores push unrealistically small sizes it's that your size is unnaturally big. Stop pretending that you're sexy and beautiful, you're a mess and you need to do something about it. You don't deserve it and your man who found you when you were 50 lbs lighter doesn't deserve it either."

My January Daily Weigh In!

Goal 1: 210lbs (20lbs lost) (Sept 21st 2012)
Goal 2: 199lbs (onederland!)
Goal 3: 196lbs (no longer obese!)
Goal 4: 180lbs (weight I was when I met my fiance)
Goal 5: 164lbs (normal BMI)
Goal 6: 150lbs (final goal weight)

I would tell myself not to be so hard on myself. That would probably be the most important thing. Beating myself up about my weight got me nowhere.

I would also want to say to take care of myself for my health, not to lose weight. Trying to be healthy and not "dieting" is what finally helped me lose weight without starving myself.

I would have also wanted to know that trying to force weight loss only backfires. Letting it happen as it happens/ allowing my body to lose how it wants to has been way easier and less painful. Almost effortless at times.

And that the feeling of health is way better than the feelings of either over-the-top indulgence or iron willed control.

Another big one would be to just be happy and not worry so much. To take it easy and enjoy time more as it passes. Its all about finding the joy and humor in anything. Otherwise I would just be miserable all the time.

I would tell myself, Don't Give UP. You can do this, you may have some mistakes and some plateaus along the way, but you will do this!

Same as you, PinkSparkles, that it can be done, and will be done, and isnt too scary or hard as long as you keep trying. And that nothing has been done to my weight that cant be undone- it can all be changed if I want to
