Default I'm Back!

Hi everyone!

In Feb, March and April I was reading very regularly and posting occasionally. I've been MIA since then, and I hope you all will have me back. The camaraderie and support on these boards is fantastic, and I know it will help me stay on track.

Life just got a little crazy for me in the past 6 weeks -- I took several out-of-town trips and had some major problems with a very close friend, and I lost focus on my fitness goals. I haven't been journaling my food or doing much "dedicated" exercise, although I have tried to make reasonable food choices and be active when an opportunity presents itself. I feel very fortunate to have drifted down a couple of pounds during this period. I have a history of really fast regains when I lose focus, so I guess something must have changed in my mindset this time around - and I'm grateful for that.

I've realized that allowing the relationship problems to distract me from my fitness goals is foolish. I think I'll be better able to cope with the emotional fallout if I feel better physically and have something positive to focus on. So, I'm back, and hope to read and post every day.

Onward and downward in June!

Welcome back!!

Hey - life gets in the way sometimes - It has happened to all of us.

Even with everything going on, it looks like you made good choices - you mentioned that you lost weight - so you did good.
