Post Starting Over

When I first joined this message board, I was 294 and now sad and angry Im 300 but its going to be a new year Wed. so what better way to start the new year off by getting back on the wagon and start loosing weight again, Im ready. Has anyone else have to start all over again? It would be nice to have some people I can relate too.

Welcome back Terra1984!
I think in the 300+ group most of us have been in your shoes at one time or another.
Good luck!

I'm not in the 300+ Crowd, but I'm starting over. I just started again yesterday.

When I first joined this forum, 3 years ago (yikes!) I was 160ish, struggling to get to 150. I'm now 182. I remember all the struggles, all the "don't eat that!" and stomach growls, and peer pressure and working out so hard... and barely shedding weight. Now, I've added 22 pounds. 22! that's 5 months extra work I gave myself. I'm angry, sad, upset, but... also motivated.

I've started over so many times. Usually heavier than I left off by 5-10 lbs. I keep telling myself If I didn't try those times I'd be in the 200lbs by now, at least I start. I always give myself the speech about how THIS Halloween I'll be able to wear a rocking outfit, how THIS new years I can wear one of those dresses, how THIS summer, I can swim and not feel so self conscience. And yet... the next Halloween, I'm wearing the ghost costume again.

I keep telling myself this year is different, this time is different, this time I'll do it. I'm on thyroid meds now, spoke to my doctor, am not dieting, merely eating healthy with less calories, working out with something I can stick to, and joined a weight loss program that pays you small amounts of money as you lose weight. (Denver program, pretty spiffy). So... I just have to do it.

Let's just do it. This time, no excuses, no 22lbs gained and 3 years later. We're going to wear those cute outfits and be able to find clothes at a Ross instead of a Dress Barn!

Hi Terra! I lost down to 225, gained back to 351, and am now on the way back down—so I know something of what you are dealing with. If you feel like it, join us in the 300+ Chat thread!

I lost 65 pounds in 2011 and then gained almost all of it back. I am ready to start again, I know what I need to do it is just the getting off my butt and doing it.

Like everyone round these parts, I've had my share of stalls and restarts.

One thing I've learned with the years is that anger and shame don't actually help me get restarted.

Instead, I'd encourage you to celebrate your new commitment, set small goals and celebrate each time you succeed. The sooner you let go of a set-back, the sooner you're moving forward.

We can all do this!

Way to be re-commiting Leslie! And you're so right, Vortex: there's nothing to be gained from bein' angry or ashamed. Let's breathe in the future and breathe out the past!

Hello to a fellow Kansas girl

The last 2-3 months for me have been an up/down stall and starting this year, I'm finally on my way to goal #1 and goal #2 (which is 250 lbs). Plus, I have to fly later this summer and I am DETERMINED to only buy one seat dang it! lol The last time I flew, I was 330lbs and I bought two seats to avoid embarrassment (and to be comfortable - thank goodness I did because United's economy section is small even for a regular sized person lol).

We can do it!

Hi Dreamgyrl,

Where at in Kansas are you from? Im from Wichita. I believe we can do it. I bet you will get to where you only need to buy one seat, I wish you the best of luck.
