Mine was two things that happened to occur back-to-back. The first was that I took my "fat and comfortable" jeans out of the dryer and they were waaaaaay too tight. I just chalked it up to the dryer shrinking my favorite pair of jeans down to a size that cut off my air supply. About a week after that, my cousin and I went to a concert we had been anticipating all summer. We took so many pictures, but when they were developed, I noticed how fat I looked in each and every one of them. I literally tore up all the pictures of myself, essentially "cutting" myself out of the event. I also realized I had done this many times before with other things. I was slowly erasing myself from my own past! I cried and cried that night and decided I needed to take control of myself, and my future. I have only been on this diet for a month, but this is the first time I've lasted longer than two weeks and can honestly see making this my lifestyle. Whatever the reasons people have, I'm glad you're all here so we can cheer ourselves on.
