Best Ways To Lose Weight?

Hello,
I really want to hear about your experiences of losing weight, the hardest moments that you had and how you overcame them, how did you lose weight, etc.
Can you describe what your life was like being overweight, before you decided to lose weight?
What was the turning point for you that made you decide to lose weight?
What were the greatest challenges you had when trying to lose weight?
If you were successful at losing weight, how did you do it?
Thank you

Not lost more than a few pounds so far. Will let you know how I managed it, dietwise, when I do it

Was last year when I was was looking at photos on Facebook that I decided I had to lose weight.

Are you on a diet? Are those just questions you are interested in, or are you looking for a diet regiment yourself?

Yes, I'm on a diet. I'm counting calories, eating less and planning to start exercising later as well. I think that learning from others is a great way for success.
How is your weight loss progress going?

  • Can you describe what your life was like being overweight, before you decided to lose weight?
  • What was the turning point for you that made you decide to lose weight?
I had a bad spell of depression the last year and a half before starting my diet and I put on weight a lot of things negative had changed about me and I needed to change them back:
Confidence got lower
Anxiety higher
Moody
Lack of patience
Lack of energy
Struggling to get up and wake up in the morning

^ All of the above changed.
  • What were the greatest challenges you had when trying to lose weight?
Hitting weight loss plateaus
Starting to exercise, it wasn't easy to get going but once I was there I was always determined to better myself (time, distance, etc).
Reducing the carbs on my plate/served up
Replacing the wardrobe every jean size down (4 in total)
  • If you were successful at losing weight, how did you do it?
Slimming World changed a lot about my eating habits before I went it alone (calorie counting):
Lurpak lightest
Less bread
Less coffees
Less sugar
Limited 'treats' because you just hated syning them
Fry light instead of olive oil
More water
Green tea
The biggest change was 3 meals a day instead of quick crap/snack food in the day and one greedy loaded plate for dinner

.... Will mention when I started to exercise I soon found out the tape measure was as important if not more important than the scales. I nearly got disheartened by the scales until I realised my inches were coming off. At 10 stone 8lbs I'm at a size 10. Everyone is shaped differently but most I know are much lighter on the scales yet in the same size.

I had to lose just 10 kilos of extra weight. The moment I realized the reason I had gained 10 extra kilos was the ah-ha moment. I noticed that I had gained extra weight after a period of 14 months, working for 16 hours every day and eating just 1 meal all day. So I decided to eat 3-4 meals and limit bread and six months later, I was back on my weight.
