So happy to come read this post.
Dana, I remember you, I'm sorry you had a horrible year, but hopefully this year will rock.
Darbs, also sorry for what's going on! It's crazy how things turned out while a newborn is there, which should be a happy event! Hopefully things will turn out like you want them to.
As for me, I'm still struggling, but at least I learnt not to let go 100%, so I slip here and there and get back to being OP. I guess I will keep on trying until I get it right.
Started IP 06-30-11 @250lbs - Started alternatives mid Oct. 2011 - Stopped on Christmas 2011 (biggest mistake of my life) Lost 50lbs by then. Gained back all the weight I lost + 20 more lbs after IVF in 2013.
Many re-starts failed miserably. I stopped IP as I wasn't sticking to the plan but always try to re-start.
