What happened that finally gave you the push to get in shape and lose weight?
I know there are the benefits of having more energy and generally feeling better/healthier, but I'm guessing for most people something has to happen to prompt a change.
For me it was a bunch of photos all taken on the same day by a friend who tagged me on Facebook. I was so mortified at how I looked that I untagged and hid them from my wall. Round face, a gap between my top and trousers where my t-shirt hung over my belly, and a few photos where I was sitting on the floor and the top of my legs looked huge. I know that's pretty vain coming from a bloke, but as I flicked back through all my tagged photos I realised what I used to look like and finally came to the conclusion that I needed to sort it out. The other thing that got me is on the same day I went to get a t-shirt out of the cupboard and it was an XXL. I think at the time of buying it I tried to convince myself that I was only getting it because it would shrink the first time I washed it. After seeing the photos I realised that was crap
I was never skinny, but I kinda liked how I used to look
Has anyone else had something happen that makes you say 'enough! I'm going on a diet'?
