Default So sappy

I've been filled with exceptionally sappy moments lately and I guess I need to get this out of my system by telling you all how much this community has meant to me over the years.

Honestly, I would not have had any weight loss success if I didn't have a community of people going through the same things. I've been on several weight loss communities, but this, by far, has been the best one.

So thanks!

2010 is going to be a great year.

I will do the Komen 60 mile walk for breast cancer again this year!!
Next goal is 175: Pounds from goal = 4.2.

It is the best!!! I'm more of a lurker than a poster. This group means a lot to me. There's inspiration on every page.

Happy 2010!

*snif* *snif* Seriously...I am touched...this place is beyond words.
2011(ish) and I didn't understand:
Alice came to a fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."
~ Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

I'm making a plan & working that plan. I have direction & discipline! Who knew it was possible?

I agree Matt. This site has made such a difference along the way in this long and winding and sometimes bumpy road to better health.

I am so grateful to have found it.

Move ticker, move!

I don't think that's sappy, I think that's awesome!! I too love 3FC with all my heart. Although I have not had all that much success, it scares me to even think where I might be otherwise!!

Love to all @ 3FC!!!

The Secret is: CONSISTENCY

I guess I'm a sap too, then, because I agree this place is amazing. I've only been around a couple of months, and every day, I find new forums with new wisdom and inspiration to keep me going. (and Matt, it's you and others like you that inspire me! so thanks!!)
