My little story - I am a lifetime WW member. First time I joined was in 1992. I did not reach my goal weight then. Long story short, I gained what I lost plus a few more for good measure. 1999 - joined again, lost 28KG/ 62lbs and maintained for 3 years. Life fell apart (I was married then and we split up, I lost my job, fell into a deep depression, took a/d's and tried to drink myself to death. Fortunately I'm still alive, things are better, but I gained all the weight back) and so did my weight loss / maintenance efforts.
I've tried half-heartedly the last couple of years to lose weight, but I think I'm finally in the right place now and I'm DOING it. Besides that, I have a short term goal of not looking like the side of a barn when I get married in October.
