    I was just chatting with my mum about weight. We're both on Slimming World which is working out really well for us.

    But she asked me what my turning point was, i.e when did I think "jesus, I need to lose three stone" and mine was when I was on the tube and a bunch of lads started shouting "ey fatty fatty fatty" "Piggy" "She's fat but I'd f**k her" and made pig noises (charming but it gave me a kick up the backside!)

    I'd love to know what made any of you guys lose weight?

    omg that sounds like a horrible experience!
    I'm a sw member too since november and I'd have to say I noticed I had to lose weight when I was running out of clothing options in my wardrobe and also looking at photos of myself.

    I'm on sw aswell! Knowing how much weight I'd put on and looking at the health risks spurred me on to lose weight

    I'm on SW too, second time around for me, first time was when I realised that my clothes were just not fitting right and the size kept creeping up.
    Now, I've just realised that losing a bit of weight will make it easier for me to be more active and do things that I've wanted to do for ages but have been worried about being "too fat" to do them.

    That's actually really accurate, I've lost a stone since uni and now I feel like I could go swimming without being embarrassed

    My mum told me that I was looking a bit 'pudgy' and I always felt self-conscious about my body, especially in summer. I was never massively overweight (heaviest was about 11st 5lbs) but I've managed to get down to around 10st now.

    My blood pressure was high and my IBS was flaring up regularly. I think I was finally able I get out of the trap of self denial and stop pretending I was happy when I wasn't. Still have a way to go but I am over the half way mark and much happier. The longer I go the easier it gets

    My heaviest weight was 11 stone 8, now down to 10 stone 9 (getting there) so I know what you mean
