Hello everyone. It's been awhile since I posted, so I hope you guys remember me! Long story short, my relationship started dissolving with my fiancee, my focus on weight loss was suspended...We broke up and I have been trying to get back on track. I have continued losing weight and I am down to 178. It's been slow, but I am just happy that I haven't gained! I can fit comfortably in all 14s, and many 12s!

I hope everyone has been having success I have a lot of catching up to do!

Love you guys,
Mary

Hi Mary!

I'm really glad to see you here, I've just re-joined (so-to-speak) myself.

I'm sorry to hear about you and your fiancee breaking up, that's really rough. Are you doing ok?

How is school going these days? Are you out for the summer?

Good job for not letting things in your life derail your weight loss. Sometimes it's easier to let it go, I'm proud of you for sticking with it!

I look forward to seeing you around more!

:-) Gale

Mary - Yay, you're back. I thought about you often, and I'm sorry for the reason for your leaving...but what an amazing job to go through such a turbulent time and not gain...way to go.

Glad we'll be seeing you around again.

Thanks you guys
Welcome back to you as well Gale!

I am doing fine. I was the one that ended it...but it was still very hard. Plus I graduated this semester so that made it even harder.

I am out of school for summer...And probably for awhile now Time to be a big girl and try to find a real job lol. Grad school may be somewhere down the road though. So far though I have just been relaxing a little and catching up on some reading!

I'm SO very glad to hear from you once again.

Ending a relationship is never an easy thing to do, even if we know it's the right thing to do. I give you tons of credit for not diving back to the food to deal with the breakup. That bodes really, really well for your future!!!

Congratulations on your graduation. I look forward to "seeing" you around. All the best.

Also welcome Gale. Love the doggy picture.

You're back! I recently rejoined the band wagon myself. I think about you often and I am glad to hear things are going well. You look fantastic in that picture!!! I am sorry to hear about the reasons for your temporary leaving, but I am glad you are doing well. And congrats on graduating! That has got to feel good!
