I started there (well, right at 300), so I "hang out" in the 300+, the 110 lb. and the 30-somethings thread (though this one the least of the three). You are not alone!

I am over 300, which is a very scary weight for me. In October my mother had 11 small heart attacks and I went on low-carb, and in just a few weeks I fell off the wagon (which i'm sure we have all done), but when I heard about a month ago, about my long distance cousin, who was 37 died of a massive heart attack, leaving 6 children, a husband, and disabled parents behind, I decided enough was enough! So low-carb bound I went on Febuary 14, I know right, why Valentines day, well it had to a day, and that's just when I started. My biggest problem of being overweight was not being able to walk across campus, or even around the grocery store, without being short of breath. I developed asthma two years ago, and I NEVER want to have breathing issues ever again. I joined tan and tone robotics last friday and have worked out 45 min every day so far. I just took the March Exercise Challenge to do 540 minutes. So here I am 34, divorced, no children, blood sugars begining to level out, and some weight and inches coming off...
I wish the BEST of luck to everyone!!

@shapedself what was your breaking point?

I don't know that it was just one thing. Both my parents were very fat when I was growing up, and I especially remember them not being able to do active things with me because of their weight. I remember regretting that while growing up and still do sometimes now. At the time my daughter was one-year old, and I knew I never wanted her to feel that way about me.

I also just got "tired of being tired". I had so little motivation even to do trivial day to day tasks; so many things felt like such a chore.

I'm not in the 3's but I got awfully close when I started my life style changes. I always thought 200 would be my breaking point, then 225, then 240 etc. It's easy to let things spiral out of control.

Miss Donna, definitely not alone! I just hardly ever come to the 30 forums. (or the forums in gneeral I just am busy lately to get near a computer with internet). Anyway, am definitely in my 30's even if I ACT like i'm in my 20's or sometimes even like i'm in my teens!

Good Morning!!!! You are not alone. Im new here and trying to find my place in the forum. Im 38 and started at 327lbs. I dont look at weight loss as dieting, it is a change in lifestyle. Looking at it like that has helped me so much.
Please dont feel alone. Keep your head up. You can do this!!!!

I started this journey out at 460 pounds, that was 10 months ago. I am now 289. You are so not alone, I remember feeling that way when I started, I could not find anyone who was in the 400's.

Thank you so much... You are making great progress as well, so big pat on your back too! As far as what I have been doing: Calorie Counting, I did only this for the first 100 pounds and then I started adding excersize. Still not real consistant with it but I do move around a whole lot more than I used to. It is much easier now. My biggest piece of advice is to know your "trigger" foods, the ones that you can't just have a little of or the ones that make you crave more junk. Stay away from these, anything else is just fine. This has helped me tremendously!
