Its me - the poster formerly known as Jillegal.
Oh geez, I can't believe you guys remembered! How sweet of you all to send me birthday wishes (especially those who have no idea who I am)
Yes, it's been too long - I couldn't remember my password to log in and I couldn't remember what email address I used to register back in 2003, so I couldn't even ask for my password to be sent to me and had to re-register! Yeah, once a ditz always a ditz (of course now I can blame it on senility).
So good to see some of the "old gang" (Sandi, Dawnyal, Jen, Linda, Gayle). I only wish I could get a birthday greeting from Sarah
Hello to the "newbies" - glad you found this supportive site!
Not much to update with me really: same wonderful guy, kids and dog! Same old battle with the weight, too. Its okay though, I realized when I lost it all that its a lifelong thing and there's never going to be a magic fix, just perseverance, a bit of crashing and burning and then renewal. I can't complain - I'm healthy, happy and growing old gracefully (okay, the last part is a big lie)
Flying out in the morning to pick up my daughter in Edmonton and then we're off to Banff for some skiing. Life is good.
Thanks again for thinking of me and best wishes to you all - never give up and never forget you deserve the best in life. Be good to yourselves!
