Default Looking for a specific thread by one of our All-Stars about how life is different...

My mom has just started WW and is doing excellently so far (15 pounds lost in the first few weeks!)

Her big problem is starting out with a bang and then losing motivation.

I wanted to give her a copy of something I read on here but I can't seem to find it for the life of me! It was written by one of the all-stars- Meg? Robin? the other Robin? I'm not sure...

But it was a long bulleted list/story about the many things in her life that are different now that she's lost the weight. Like airplane trips, sitting on plastic chairs... stuff like that...

It was so inspiring and showed me all the MANY things in life that I didn't realize my weight was ruining...

If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would be VERY grateful!

I'm new, so I am of no help. But I would like to read it too. It would be nice to have to review on those tough days and I am looking for some inspiration.

There are a couple of threads I can think of with that general theme:

What couldn't (or wouldn't) you...

The little things that make a difference

Do those help?

Thanks PhotoChick--- you've got the right idea...

But this posting was like PAGES long... by one person... I have a feeling she started the thread herself after she lost all the weight... and other people commented on it... not like a "post what you've learned" type of post...

Thanks though... I've searched and searched these forums... can't find it anywhere (she posted it a long time ago, I believe). Yet I've read it TWICE since I've been on here. You think I would remember WHO wrote it! (I thought it was one of the Robins, though)

I remember it as well (my memory says it was a Robin too) and have looked for it again to no avail. It was a great post!

ETA- The one I'm thinking of used to be in the Goal section- I think.

I think I remember the Meg thread you're talking about Jen - wish I had saved it. By the way.. LOVE the new display picture!

Gee, thanks! :-) That's me with a "healthy glow" on my honeymoon cruise last year... approx. 269 pounds (and growing with all that delicious food!)

Anyhow... it's not Glory's (though hers is very inspirational)... and it's not Meg's big story about how she lost her weight...

It's the "things I realized after" that I'm looking for... from one specific person... hmph... Thanks for helping so far, girls!

I'm almost positive that RockinRobin wrote it. If you PM her, I bet she can find it for you.

Is this the thread you're looking for?

Why are we doing this? Is it worth it?

Nope, not it--- it was WAY more involved... I PM'd RockinRobin and asked her for it--- if I find it I will post it on here--- It really hit me so hard the first time I read it. The newbies should be able to enjoy it as well. I don't know where it went!

Hi Jen, I've been out all day, enjoying my new life I might add. My kids are off from school this week and I took the day off and I did something I never would have or could have done when I was so heavy. We went on a boat. It was lots of fun. And then we went to the park and had a picnic. It was great. These are things I mostly missed out with my kids when they were little. They're much older now. Oh well, better late then never.

I don't know specifically which thread you're speaking of. I've responded to so many in the past with that same type theme . I don't recall ever using bullets though. I do think Mandalinn has though. But I certainly have mentioned my past avoidance/fear of chairs & airplanes and the such. I'm sorry. When I get a chance I'll try to take a look, see if I can dig something up.

Oh and tell your mom, it's not motivation she needs - it's COMMITMENT. Cause as we all know, motivation comes and goes and is never really around when there's cheesecake or chocolate nearby, , but once you make that COMMITMENT, well then that's that. It doesn't matter. Because you're commited to that healthier life. And there's no turning back. You just keep plugging away.
