Default Never Have I Ever..

.. weighed over 300 lbs in my entire life! I work in IT and my job involves sitting on my computer from 9-5. I have an active 4 year old and a 5 year old dog. So I have absolutely no excuses for putting on this much weight. I weigh more today than I did at my full term of pregnancy 4 years ago. I always thought I will lose the baby weight but my kid is no longer a baby and I have not lost any weight. I have only gained some and some and then gained a LOT!
I see my ideal weight to be 150lbs which is almost half of my current body weight. I am 37 years old, I already feel miserable about my life because I dont look the way I want to or do the things I should do at my age.
The pandemic was a good excuse to get into my shell and overeat in sweats all day. However, now as things / work are starting to 'open up' I feel like I have no more excuses left in my bucket.
I am setting short term goals for myself. Not particularly following any diets. Going to start with reducing sugar and junk food in my diet. Which is ironic cause I ate McDonalds for lunch today. Aaagh.
I want to do better and live better and just overall feel better. I hope this forum keeps me motivated and I hope I end up motivating others on here as well.
Here goes nothing...

I am right there with you! I have eaten myself into a dark, lonely place and definitely not living as I would like to. I've lost and regained weight over and over. I have been doing WW since last year, and I love it. I was doing great, but I slipped up and with the pandemic and shutdown/stay at home orders all the time, got into bad habits again. I love your idea of just setting short term goals. I find I do better with that sort of thing, rather than overwhelming myself with the big picture.

I read something today that prompted me to come back to 3FC again (I've been away for some time). It went something like "take care of yourself now, or you will be forced to care for your illness". I feel the same as you in wanting to do better, feel better, and live better. I want to participate in life instead of hiding in my shell.

I'm starting tonight by making a list of why I want this. I'm going to ease back into my plan by cutting out the junk, working on getting my water in, and tracking every day.

We can do this!!
