Default Starting Over (again...)

Hi all, I've posted a couple times, reading lots though. I am really inspired by all of you. I'm trying to find a couple forums to settle into. I am on SBD (sort of ). Seems I keep finding and losing the same 5 lbs. It is overwhelming to have so much to lose. I lost 80 pounds about 8 years ago after my first marriage ended - finally looked after ME Then I met my DH, had 3 beautiful babies, and woke up almost 40yo and 100 lbs overwt. Think I forgot how to look after me

Im looking to offer support and get some too! I hope to meet other chicks like me and make some friends along the way. Have an awesome day everyone!

wip - Welcome to 100 club! I look forward to helping you with your weight loss journey. I'm kind of doing a SBD/WW thing. I have to tweak it since I got super dizzy on P1. Now I'm basically just watching my sugars.

Welcome!! I find this place so very encouraging -- whether I need a shoulder to cry on, a laugh to brighten my day, a pat on the back for a success, or a kick in the pants. I'm on three "weight-loss" boards, but this is the one I check most often. Post early and post often. The more you do, the more entwined in the community you become. That's very helpful when the road gets bumpy.
I look forward to learning more about you.

Welcome Wip! I've only been here a month but I think it's a great board. Everyone is very nice and helpful. It's fun to see everyone's progress and hear their stories. Good luck with your weight loss!

Hi Wip

I am fairly new to 3FC and have found the 100+ board a great place to be. I feel really inspired by other people stories and the journaling and points challenges really do help in keeping me on track. I had the experience of gaining 10 lbs. a year for 25 years and not really knowing what to do. The best topyou. I look forward to seeing you around. Denise aka activeadventurer

Welcome Wip - I am glad you are now ready to take care of you again! I hear you when you say about losing the same 5lb again - that was me from the ages of 14-31. Now thankfully I have managed to break the yo yo cycle, it wasn't easy but it is so worth just pressing forward!

All the best

Thumbs up wow

I just checked in after wading thru 1/3 of my house cleaning up after the little whirlwind. (Amazing how much stuff and mess 3 little ones and 1 big one can generate.)

I can't believe all the messages already. Thanks everybody - I'll stay in touch. I have actually remained true to my plan this am. Pretty good since snack for the littles was honeydew melon which I love. Thanks a bunch!!

p.s wip stands for "work in progress"

Welcome Sherri ~ the more the merrier! I think you'll find us a pretty supportive (and, at times, amusing bunch). "Work in Progress" is a wonderful name (I figured it was "whip" and you'd forgotten the "h" )

I forget who said it (Sandi?) but its so true that every successful person here "started over" one last time
