Unhappy I've come crawling back...

I can't believe it. I was doing SO good. Starting all over again... gosh... it's so depressing. I was just starting to get a new body. All my hard work was just starting to show.

I love you all so much. You've always shown me so much support and I hope at least some of you remember me. I'm looking forward to getting to know all the new members and reacquaint myself with those of you I already know. That is, if you all wouldn't mind having me back.

I've got some news to report. The bad news is, that I've gained some weight. The good news is that I'm still with my fiance and I'm going to be going to college soon to become a nurse! I'm SO excited. I'm starting my life all over again. This is going to be a great year for me. A turning point. College, marriage, weight loss, turning 25. YAY!

Of course I remember you...it hasn't been all that long!

Congratulations on all your good news...I hope to be a nurse someday too when my kids are grown (I'm 28 with two little ones 8 and 4)

Good for you for getting back on the horse..now stop beating yourself up and be proud of taking the initiative to start again!

Welcome back. I am a big believer in the old saying you can never be defeated if you are unwilling to quit. It is a process and a life long journey. You can do it.

I wish you the very best.

You're back and ready to get into the swing of things, that's the important thing! So many disappear, give up and don't give themselves a chance to start over. You have so many plans for a wonderful and successful life, not the least of which will be weight-loss. You came back, you really want it, so go for it! Remember ~ everyone who is successful at this started over one last time.

back! As Linda has said, do not beat yourself up about it. You are back ready to start again. I think most of us have had "do-overs".

Welcome back. I was just thinking of you the other day when they were advertising for Survivor casting calls in the area. Glad to see you made your way back to us.

Welcome back. Nice to meet you! I'm getting married, too, this year and just graduated from college so I know how excited you must be. Good luck (with everything)!
