For me, it was a number of things:
* Sept '05, I was referred to as somewhat overweight in a health report. I was shocked as I didn't think that's how people saw me;
* Oct '05, I couldn't fit into what I wanted to wear to my Granma's funeral;
* Dec '05, wanting to be swallowed up at Xmas time, boy had I packed on the weight over the past year!;
and through all that time I could only fit into about 1/4 of my wardrobe - I couldn't chose what I felt like wearing but had to choose between what I could fit into!
So at the end of December, fat and miserable, I decided as of 1 January 2006 I was going to lose weight once and for all and that it had to start now, no more excuses, and so began my FINAL weightloss journey.
