Default Finding lost posts

There have been a few wonderful, well-written and insightful posts on 100+ that I failed to copy and save, something I really regret at the moment. I don't even know who wrote them. If anyone can point me back at 2 in particular, I would be very, very grateful:

1. One talked about how being very overweight was leading the poster to a "shrinking life;"

2. the second one used a trip to the ocean as a metaphor for this whole weight loss journey, asking why the poster should stop at the 7-11 when she could see the ocean from there.

Anyone remember these or maybe have been smarter than me and saved them at the time they appeared? Thank you!

I definitely remember the first post because I think I posted a reply to that thread. Perhaps you could look for threads that I've posted to and see if any of those are the one you're looking for? Both of those posts made a big impression on me, too.

I vividly remember the ocean one, but not which thread. All I can say is, I have been here a shorter time than you, so if I remember it you can probably find it in the subsequent pages. Last few weeks, for sure. Or rockinrobin/whomever wrote it can repeat it

It wasn't me. I think it may have been thighs be gone. Not positive.

You don't know how many times I read a great post here and have regretted not saving it somewhere.

Thank you, everyone! I will use the information to continue the hunt...

Sandi, that really is a wonderful idea! Thank you for the thought and time you put into keeping this place the buzzin', hoppin', movin' place that it always is!

That's a great idea. We have something like that in the Maintainer's Forum. Something like "Post worth reading over and over again". And let me tell you - they are!

Click on search and type in words that you think were in the post, such as "Shrinking life " or "ocean " , do not use quotation marks. I have been successful at this , several times, or if you think you know the poster you can look at their posts.

Here's the ocean metaphor post, posted by Thighs Be Gone in a thread started by Ailidh: "Robin's really made me think" in the 100 lb Club support forum.

"Really and truly though I just jumped in the car and went on vacation as I started my weightloss! When I started seeing the blue water I kept driving towards it. The views just got better and better. Why would I want to stop at the 7-11? Why would I want to go back to the freeway? I can't wait to put on a cute suit and jump in that blue water now. Who would have thought that I would have ever gotten here to this great, exotic place considering I was in the middle of no man's land before? The long drive and the flat tires and stinky reststops along the way would have intimidated me and made me stay at home if I would have thought about it. So, really, I didn't. I just grabbed my toothbrush and jumped in the car."

I did a 3FC search and came up with many referances to ocean. You have to look at each one until you find the right one.
