I was alone in the elevator!
My mom saw a picture of herself. She looked terrible--- big old bat wings, and a large trunk on her 5-foot frame. She convinced her friend to give her the photo and she taped it onto the frig door. She lost 40 lbs in 5 months.

It is nice for me to be able to come here and talk about it once in a while. Thank you for listening.
I very much relate to what your daughter is feeling, of course. When my friends used to talk about their dads (even complain "he always wants to spend time with me! So annoying!", which infuriated me) I felt this gnawing loneliness and had to change the topic before tears started.

It gets better, though. I started a little family of my own pretty young (at 21) and it really helped fill that lonely, "just me and Mom" void. My husband lost his Mom young too, so we sort of fell into each other's orphaned arms.

It's still recent for you two, of course, but eventually the pain will subside. There's nothing wrong with depending heavily on each other at this stage. I remember so many bleak evenings of my Mom and I dragging ourselves to a movie or dime store just to have two hours' distraction, a laugh or two. Just putting one foot in front of another. Really wish you the best

Just overall disgust with my weight gain over the past 8 years or so. I tried going to the gym and busting my rear and although I felt better, the lbs. just weren't coming off. I went to a bbq and eavesdropped on a conversation two people were having about the book "Why We Get Fat". I went home and looked up the book on Amazon and could tell by the reviews that the answer was "carbs". I remembered my success on the Protein Power diet many years ago and decided to give it another shot. I will say that the weight is coming off far more slowly this time around, but the important thing is that it is coming off. I also feel much better physically eating low-carb, no painful gassy bloatedness or heartburn that wakes me in the middle of night. I've noticed my blood pressure has come down to the normal range from the pre-hypertension range. I'm thinking more clearly and able to concentrate (very important as I work in the legal field). When I low-carbed years ago, it was just another diet to try. Now I realize that it needs to be my way of life, my body is simply not geared to handle insulin spikes.

My head actually went through the dry wall and my entire body flipped around the curved part of our stairs. I ended laying feet first on the floor in my dining room. I felt and heard a snap in my neck, and was scared to death to move. My daughter called 911, and the paramedics put me on a stretcher. I was so scared they would drop me, and they assured me they would not, but they actually had to call for lift assistance, and one man warned the other "be careful, she's heavy." I was so mortified. I laid in the hospital emergency room for 2 hours in pain and the Dr. and nurses didn't even act like they cared.

They did not find any fractures, but my neck and back have still not healed. If I sneeze, the pain shoots from my back to my sternum, and I literally cannot breath. I started trying to lose weight immediately after that, but did not switch to low carb. I went from about 307 to 291.4. Then, within a few weeks, I had a Dr. appointment, and when I went in, despite my best efforts, I had gained almost all the weight back, and was about 305.

I cried about it that night, did some soul searching, and made the decision to change. I started low carb after talking with my niece and trying to decide whether or not to have weight loss surgery. This is my last attempt. If I fail, I am having the surgery.

By the time I got weighed at the gym, I was back down to 294.5. I was 291.6 this a.m. I'm hoping and praying to see 289 very soon.

I never want to go back.

Pictures were part of my wakeup call, plus the scale!

The biggest one for me though, was standing in the check out line at Walmart looking at 3 morbidly obese people. There were 2 ladies and a guy, all at least 300lbs, and their cart was full of junk food and soda. I caught myself thinking, if only they knew how destructive all that sugar was to their bodies, and then I thought but I know how destructive it is and my cart wasn't much better. Still though, I have lots of ups and downs, starts and restarts, but everyday is a new day, and every meal is a choice.

We have a family member who is somewhere around 350 or so. She is not that old, but in extremely poor health. She doesn't take care of herself at all. She eats very poorly and smokes all day long. She walks with a cane because of her health issues. I know that she has been under a lot of pressure over the years and it has just about defeated her. I feel so badly for her, but can't make her decisions for her either. I don't want to be that way. Ever. I don't want to ever give up.

Not that its a "last straw" moment, but seeing as how my brother (who was skinny as a teen but put on some weight in his adult years) has lost 20+lbs since April going LC and then seeing a pic of me next to my skinny sister (see avi), theres no reason I cant do/be the same

When I went to Target, and peered into the triple mirror of the dressing room! I was horrified. I realized how I do not have any full length mirrors in my house. I just stood there and cried. I got myself together, left the store without any new clothes, and decided that was it.

Last straw came today. Been waiting for it, but it hit me, so here I am. I needed to get to that point before committing for the long haul. I had to take one of my girls for a well-child checkup. There is a big mirror in the examination room and horrid fluorescent lighting. I thought I looked nice before I left home, but noooooo. Lumps and bumps everywhere. My back is F-A-T!!! And my legs, and my arms...you get the picture. I have a full length mirror at home, but I swear it lies. It is not a true representation of objects reflected therein. Seriously. And our lighting at home is dim. Practically candlelight veil. So...wake-up call...last straw...you name it. It's come and gone, and I'm on my way to Onederland. See y'all there!

I moved to another county, and while life is generally good and the transition was very smooth (hubby found a job a few days after we landed, we found a place relatively easy, etc) have been having increased blood pressure for the past few months, which was giving me mild anxiety, but do you think that did it? No! I was still eating all the processed food that sounded interesting and new to me.

So during my birthday week, I was eating almost a pint of ice cream a day. Then we went to Sydney for the weekend. And of course, there were pictures.

That picture of me standing in front of the Queen Victoria monument did it. I was so disgusted at myself for looking that way - I didn't realise I was that HUGE.

We came home to Melbourne Saturday night. Shopped for food the next day, and I started this nth LC journey the following Monday.

Thanks for bumping this thread, Amelie. Good stuff.

For me, I was at a very unhappy time and place in my life. I lived far from my friends/family, had a stressful job and was having communication problems with my husband. We both had turned to eating as a hobby instead of attempting to communicate. It was like if we had a fight, instead of taking the time to figure out what the issue really was and be attentive to each others' feelings, we would just "smooth it over" (self-medicate) by going out to eat. We lived in a big city and always were trying the latest and greatest restaurants. So..our issues were not getting resolved, plus we were gaining weight and spending way too much money on food.

Then there was a death in my family so I took a trip back home to attend the funeral. I was grieving on top of all my other problems. And I looked around at all my dear family members grieving too. My heart hurt. I took a good long look at my life and told myself "I have to change things. I can't live this unhappy life."

The first step was starting Atkins. Next was starting the plans to move back to our hometown. Then slowly learning real communication with my husband and turning a corner so that we began to really enjoy and appreciate each other. Eventually I completely re-careered too. This whole process took 5 years. I started in 2008. I lost from 218 to 153 (65 lbs) within the first 2 years.

Still working all the time on how to live a good life and be happy/healthy. There will always be ups and downs in my life and it will never be "perfect". But that summer of 2008 was my turn-around point.

I can sure relate to seeing fat on my back. That and pictures did it for me.

I had been in denial for a long time about how big I was. I'm tall, it's ok that I weigh ___! Until my eye doctor checked my BP and said that it's a bit high and losing some weight would likely help...A couple weeks later I went to the foot doc and was dx'd with plantar faciatis and he said they losing weight would do wonders...see the trend? Then after seeing a picture of myself I was horrified because everyone else looked their normal size and I looked huge!! because I was! That was it. LC started the day after my SuperBowl party (Go Hawks) and I've lost 60 lbs. The BP is very normal now and the Plantar Faciatis is GONE!! wow, the docs were right

Mine wasn't necessarily a fed up "that's it" moment, it was more like "I have no other option but to lose weight." I've been telling myself I need to lose weight to avoid diabetes for a couple of years, but it was never enough to stick to it. Even when my hands and feet had that awful pins and needles feeling several times a day, I didn't stick to it.

I had just started back again when I herniated a disc in my back. I'd had hip and leg pain for a long time and figured it was related to my weight, but again, not enough to make me stick to it. After I herniated my disc and I was basically completely bedridden, I knew I could not go on the same way I had been. I'll never know if it was my weight that contributed to or caused the herniation, but I know it wasn't helping.

I've been on plan 100% for a month and am down 28.4 pounds. Before I started I told myself I wouldn't cheat until I'd lost 50 pounds. Right now there's not much I can think of that I want to eat that's not on plan; it seems easier just to stick with it. I feel so much better. I just wish I had done it before; I have to have surgery for my back next week and maybe I could have avoided that.

I had a couple of last straws, but one big one was more about fitness really than weight (though they do go together).

My Costco parking lot is on an incline. One day I unloaded my stuff (into my car parked in the space that I drove around and around to find because it was close) and the cart got away from me and started to roll downhill. I sort-of jogged a little to catch it and was COMPLETELY winded. It was crazy. I barely jogged maybe 10 yards downhill.

I did not have one big last straw moment -- more like 50 little ones that were equally meaningful. I was sick and tired of being fat. Sick of feeling ashamed of myself and my body, sick of not looking good in clothes and sick of avoiding social engagements because I was embarrassed by my appearance. I was thin for most of my life and then my weight shot up about six years ago to 200 pounds. When I encountered people who had not seen me in a while, the looks of shock and disgust on their faces made my want to crawl in a hole and die (why can't people be more diplomatic? when your eyes widen in horror when you see me, I know what you are thinking, but I digress). I still remember everyone who gave me those horrified looks (my own brother and a former neighbor) and I keep those in mind every time I feel a temptation to cheat.

I know I sound a little angry (and I apologize for that) but that little bit of anger has fueled my success to date. I am now almost 160 pounds and fitting into a size 10. My goal is 130 pounds and I can almost taste it I want it so badly!

I haven't finished reading this thread but I want all of you to know I think its incredible.

I just restarted. I'm on day 3, in fact, but its been so hard to restart that finishing two whole days of <20 carbs feels like a miracle. My body feels different already. Not thinner but "clearer."

This thread is making me cry because everyone's story feels so familiar: especially the ones about rapid weight gain: I went from 160 to 190 one spring in less than two months with not a huge amount of food. Carby foods but not a lot of calories. I know because I tracked them. It was startling.

Then the next year I put on another ten.

Now I realize that every years I will put on 10+ pounds if I don't change for good. I can reverse this trend, and its a good time to do it.

Eating lowcarb immediately starts to reverse my weight gain issue. It starts fixing the problem within the first day. This is a no-brainer.

The last straw for me, honestly? Is seeing the pity on my friends and family's faces. Their expressions changed. As my weight problem stayed and stayed, I've been big now for two years: their faces turned to pity.

I realized, This is making everyone else feel bad, too. They're all feeling bad for me.

Two days in now I've been texting my good friend about my progress and her excitement is through the roof for me. I think she believes this could be it for me.

Like GailyGail, mine was lots of moments.

Always being behind the lens of the camera because I don't want to see how I really look.

Going to Silver Dollar City with the kids this past summer and very nearly not being able to ride a roller coaster- they did get the "gut compressor" down but it was so uncomfortable that I couldn't even enjoy the ride.

Wearing a "uniform" of sorts because I have no idea how to dress for my size.

Avoiding social events because I feel like crap about how I look.

And probably the absolute worst, not going to the doctor for the past several years because I'm afraid of what I'll hear.

I was successful doing LC about 10 years ago. I lost 33 pounds. I felt really good. I was able to buy nice cute clothes. I had since gained it back and more. Oh geesh, I did the math. I had gained 72 pounds. So, I gained the 33 pounds back, and another 39 pounds. Two things have motivated me. I have a class reunion the end of next summer and in early August I saw a few recent pictures of myself. I was horrified. I started August 16, 2014, and as of this morning....I have lost 29 pounds. I've cheated a few times, but for the most part I have been good.

Both hubby and I started at the same time. I've lost a little more than him. It shows on him, because his weight is in one place, his stomach. Mine is all over. Someone mentioned to him that he looks like he's lost some weight. No one has said anything to me. Other than some things being loose, I don't really see the weight loss. ...but I know the next 30 pounds will be noticeable.

I am going to do this. I missed the last 2 class reunions, mainly because I thought I looked too fat. I am so looking forward to fitting into some nice clothes.

It's just the time to do this. I know there is a thinner person inside, just aching to get out.

When you finally come to the realization that you can no longer "suck in your gut", and your blood pressure starts climbing. I've never liked seeing myself in pictures, but had gotten to the point that every pic of my, I looked like I was wearing a float tube around my waist.

Last Friday morning.....doctors appointment.

Stepped up on the scale and was shocked at the number.

No way in Hell am I going to continue doing the stupid stuff that put that weight on.

Such an idiot.

Going to burn off this extra weight and keep it off this time.....for good.
