Thanks for welcoming me back! It's a pity that so many of us find it so difficult to keep the pounds off, but it's great that 3FC, and especially the 100 lb. Club
, is here.
Lots of new [to me] people, and a few familiar faces: Hi, seashell, ChoLabLover, and KristasMom!
Ailidh: Plan? What plan? LOL. That's something I really need to get sorted out. Counting calories was what worked for me last time, and the time before come to think of it, but I couldn't keep it up for the long haul. The only things I've decided on so far are to drastically reduce portion sizes, and severely restrict carbs for the first two weeks
. I don't intend to do this long-term, but I like to see a quick result in the beginning. I fully intend to nose around here, and steal others' good ideas.
iowa girl: I find it more difficult to lose weight since I marred as well. I need to get through my thick skull that I can't eat the same amounts as he does without getting fatter.
seashell: Sorry about your bad relationship. Emotions can really mess things up foodwise. Looks as though your ticker's headed in the right direction now though. Good for you!
ChocLabLover: What can I say? Super-congratulations on reaching Onederland!
jillnicole03 and purpleorc: Look at your tickers!
KristasMom: I'm proud of you! You caught the slide before you gained it all back, and you're making good progress. Nice loss there showing on your ticker.
I would *look at the scale, vaguely tell myself I had to do something, and leave it another couple of weeks; repeat from *.
Slashnl: I don't think it makes a difference how
much is lost and regained; that feeling we get when we realise what we've done is the same whether it's 10 pounds or 100.
Thanks again to everyone for making me feel welcomed back. You're all the bees knees!
