Default Slinks back, tail between her legs

Hello... again...

I finally updated my ticker and stats and after a few weeks of renewed lurking I'm finally ready to post again.

In a nutshell: I've done this before (who hasn't...) and sometime in 2005 I weighed 150 and I thought I was SMOKIN' hot and I loved it. A few problems and a few restarts later here I am again. I got back up to 230 and I've lost 7 pounds since I got back on track. I'd still like to see 150, although it seems so far away. I kept my clothes from that time of my life and they just seem to look impossibly small now.

But anyway, I'm a calorie counter with a touch of Weight Watchers thrown in. I do a calorie cycle where I try to stay around 1200-1400 during the week and under 2000 on the weekends. I'm getting back on the workout wagon. I see a personal trainer for 30 minutes twice a week and I try to get about 45 minutes to an hour of cardio three to four times a week.

Things have gone REALLY well for the last two weeks and there are times, like tonight, when I feel SO good and SO positive about everything that I need to remember this feeling so that I can hold on to it when things don't feel so great.

Anyway, nothing earth shattering to say -- I just wanted to say hi and that I'll see everyone around the forums!

Welcome back! It is a good feeling when you feel so motivated and positive for sure. You've done it before so you know you can do it again.

You’re not the only one! In 2005/2006, I was a regular on 3FC. I had gotten down to my goal weight and was exercising regularly. Then, life happened. I got pregnant, had my daughter in 2008, lost some of the baby weight in 2008, went back up in 2009 and have had a hard time losing it since. I want to feel good again and know that I’ve come to the right place to help me get back in shape!

The hardest part for me is being motivated. I know that we both can find it here! Good luck on your new journey!

Welcome Back!! Stay positive and you will see results again!

Think about how quickly 2011 went by. 2012 will go by even faster. Don't you want to spend that time losing weight?
