FMM: Defining Moments
Was there a defining moment in which you realized that you needed to lose weight? If so, will you elaborate? (If you experienced this moment in some other area of your life, please feel free to share that too!)
I realized I needed to do something about my weight when I was creeping up on my 35th birthday & just wasn't happy with myself or comfortable in my skin. I couldn't find clothes that I liked or looked good in. I had a heel spur, my back hurt at night so I couldn't sleep and I was frankly embarassed to take my skinny little daughter into the dance studio looking like I did. So I joined Weight Watchers.
I still have a hard time shopping, mainly because I never know what size & have to be in the mood to try stuff on. My heel spur is no more & I sleep great at night. No more aches & pains!!
btw - I was looking for a bathing suit to wear tubing this weekend & tried one on that had been on a hanger saying size 16. I was miffed at first because it was a bit snug & "the girls" were overflowing. I took it off & looked at it because I liked the style....it was a 12 !!!! I fit my butt in a 12!!!!!!! It looked bad, but it was on without cutting me in half!!
