Ditto. I've only done a weight loss once before - lost 50 and gained it all back plus 40 more! Scared me to death so much that I didn't try again for years and years until my health forced me to try again.
I've learned a lot about myself in that time - my triggers for poor decisions and so on, but I totally empathize the regain. BTDT and I hate seeing others struggle the same way I did.
