following: Ponky82's own diet
performance: losing 0.1 lb a week

I'm 33. From Mexico. I'm married with no kids. My husband is fit.
I've always been fat or "chubby". I've never been slim. The smallest size of jeans I've worn is 14, and that was the slimmer I've ever been when I was 15 years old.

I have hypothyroidism. Which makes losing weight a challenge.

My fave exercises are running and jumping the rope. But I have plantar fasciitis, so I stopped doing that and I've been struggling finding an exercise that I like and that can help me lose this huge amount of weight I have.

As you can see I don't have it easy: hypothyroidism + plantar fasciitis = screwed.

I hate diets. I've tried hundreds of them and lost some weight, but then recovered it with a plus. I don't follow diets anymore because they stress me out.

I decided to lose weight for a while. I started with 125.7 kilos. I was huge.

I decided to take care of myself on January 2012. I ate healthier and exercised. I lost 13 or 14 kilos, but then I got stuck in November. I changed exercise, followed diets, and nothing changed. I didn't get to lose a single gram. After months of trying and not getting any result, I just didn't care much about the weight. And I gain a couple of kg.

I downloaded the app just because it looked cool, but with it I decided to give it another try to lose weight. With this site and app I realize what is wrong with my foods, so I'm making adjustments and we'll see if I can lose weight again.

I got down to 108kg, but I let myself go putting excuses over excuses... so I'm back to 120kg. Yeah.... that sucks. I don't wish to be thin, I just want to weight less than 100kg, and to have a better health.

So... this is it... my re-start #8,456. This IS THE GOOD ONE, right?

Embarrassing... and then, I decided to change.
barbydebbie: Sure! share it with everyone! Motivate them! Tell them they're not alone, or, tell them "keep up so you don't become that person". If my experience can help someone, PERFECT!

SergeantS: Daaaang! Those are terrible experiences. I can imagine how much it hurts inside to be told that by the doctor, and to experience that terrible scene in front of someone you don't get along with. And SURE I would've done the same: avoid school! I would feel that everyone would be talking about me, even if they weren't. KEEP FIGHTING!! That will NEVER happen to you again!!

kdennard: thank you! and yes! share your experiences: good and bad ones. We must motivate each other, this is a hard and long journey and we all need a team, even if it's online.

Thank you, barbydebbie! Yes, it is hard, embarrassing to share it, but it's something that woke me up. I also wanted to share this so others who might feel they're the worst case scenario will see there are plenty of stories like theirs. I started with 125.7 kg, and now I'm about 111 kg, so I'm doing fine.
And I love swimming! I decided to join a gym just to swim. Even though the swimming challenge is to swim once a week, I'll try to do it at least twice.

CommaHolly: Oh, my! I can imagine how you felt! A moment so special like the wedding of your daughter, and you didn't appear in many of those pictures Crying or Very sad

Clueless101: thanks for your posts, I will check the book and links. I want to try running again (with appropriate shoes, of course) when I lose more weight, I imagine I'll be able to run then. Wink

kkd1125: terrible experience, I can relate! Sad But.. HOORAY for the NEW experience with that belt! Very Happy

Hello, everyone!
I like rollercoasters so much, but there are some that I would NEVER ride.

Clueless101: I'll check the link! It's nice to find someone who's going (or has) through the same! It is sooo stressful to give you all with diet, with poor results because of your thyroid. And I hate that plantar fasciitis! I started to run and jump the rope along with other exercises when I began my journey, and I came to LOVE running and jumping, I've never been a sporty gal, I never liked any exercise, but when I finally found something I like a lot... baaam!! can't do it because of my foot. But I'm fighting! taking care of my meals and looking for some exercise that won't hurt my feet. I've taken spinning classes, and now I'm swimming. We'll see how this goes.

Seekingbuddha: I agree. We all have those moments and it's different for each one of us. For me, this was a shocking experience.

Embarrassing... and then, I decided to change.
Hello, everyone. I want to open this topic to share some of our most embarrassing moments that made us realize how wrong we were and pushed us to think "It's time to make a change".

I decided to change on January 2012. In September 2011 I experienced something embarrassing that was like a slap in the face and I finally could SEE how fat I was and that I simply didn't want to admit it. This wasn't the only thing that made me take that decision of lose weight, but it surely had an impact.

I live in Tijuana, Mexico; just below California, USA. On September 2011 my husband and I went to Six Flags Magic Mountain. That was the first time my husband went there, so he didn't ride all the rollercosters with me. I waited in line for a long time to ride one, and when my turn finally came, I got up in the seat and tried to buckle the belt. Yes... I TRIED. I couldn't buckle it. My huge belly didn't let me. Everybody was ready to enjoy the ride, and I was struggling with a belt. When they checked everybody was ready and buckled up, they saw I wasn't ready. It took TWO people to help me to buckle the belt. It was embarrassing. I was the only one struggling. Good thing nobody (or at least not many people) seemed to noticed, but I felt horrible. I didn't even enjoy the ride. I imagined myself being asked to step off the cart because I was too fat to ride. I could imagine all the people watching me and making fun of me, and maybe becoming a viral video on YouTube. Thank God my husband didn't join me, because I would feel even worse if he saw that.

That day I thought: "This can't go further. I cannot let this going on".

I started my change in January 2012, and even though I've had ups and downs, I don't plan on quitting until I have a healthy weight.
