Default Returning... cause it is always January at 3FC

Hi all,
I was here last year, for several months, but then I moved and closed on my house and somehow it was harder to be consistent with my exercise than when I homeless (and living in a hotel)
Exercise was spotty over the spring, and summer, but I was maintaining or loosing a pound a month or so. Come Fall and back to work, I was too busy to eat and I lost another 4 pounds. I figured I was ok. I knew I should be exercising, but I chalked it up to learning to maintain while eating what I wanted when I desired.
Then came the Holiday season, and the scale kept creeping up, instead of slowly sliding down. And I began to feel that instead of succeeding slowly, which was making me feel really proud; I was failing, as I always fail.
That was a kick in the butt. i am not going back to where I was and I am certainly not going above it.
So I am back to exercising, 3 days on 1 day off. And I am back here, looking for support and solidarity.

And of course accountability.

Welcome Back!!!

I like the saying, fall down seven times, get up eight.

It doesn't matter that you were gone, what matters is that you are back!

Thanks for the welcome back everyone.
I was actually doing pretty well in the 6 months I was away, I would step on the scale every morning and I had about a 3 pound range I was comfortable in. Then I would loose a pound or so and settle into a new (lower) range. I lost about 7 pounds, to be honest.
But then this fall, I moved up to a range I thought I had left behind, and that was what made me move my behind. The good news is I am still down about 5 pounds since last spring.
The bad news is that I seem to have lost the ability to be happy in a range. Now that I am exercising (and journaling) again, I want the scale to go down, down, down and I have no patience for the range thing. It causes anxiety and I need to regain my qi about the scale.
