S/C/G: 188/188/165

Height: 5'0"

Default

For me, it was getting into too many fights with my husband and my sisters about my weight that made me think, "I'm sick of fighting about this. Maybe if I just lose the weight, they will all back off!"

Unfortunately, it's harder to stick with something when you're externally motivated. So, I managed to lose 28 pounds and then the bad habits kicked in and I gained 10 back.

At this point, though, I had weeded out my wardrobe and gotten rid of everything between sizes 14 and 18. I liked getting down to a 10. Now I'm back up to a 12. So, I'm feeling the difference in myself and wanting to get back down to 10 and maybe 8 or 6. I'm pretty short, so a size makes a big difference on me. Seeing the numbers go back up once I weighed myself after a month of tuning out of reality was the reality check I needed to get me back onto the wagon this time, with the right motivation, I hope.
