100 lb. Club - So I'm Back...
10-18-2007, 09:41 PM
Wow, it's taken me 3 days to write this post. :o:o:o But I am so angry and frustrated with myself that I have to do this. I feel like such a failure. I know I shouldn't but I do. And usually when I do is when I'm able to kick myself into gear. It's when I'm doing so well that I fall off, and that's what I need to learn how to prevent.
I'm not quite back to square one (weight-wise), but almost. I don't know why I let this happen again and again. LIFE gets in the way, and I don't know how to stop that. I do SO well, then SO bad, and the cycle just continues.
I haven't been on this board in a while... I guess I feel ashamed? I dunno. But for today, I'm back. Tomorrow hopefully I'm back too. I'm praying that this time is for good. :D
I've read a couple of posts and I see a lot of my old buddies are in ONEderland. How cool is that? Congrats! :carrot:
To all the new folks, I look forward to getting to know you!

Hey SexyRevealed - Welcome back!
What's done is done, and you know what you have to do to get back on track. You CAN do this!
I'm so glad you're back and can't wait to hear more from you soon!

Thank you Amanda. My poo poo party is almost over and I'm ready to get back in the swing. :)

Glad to see you back, Tif!

Hello there. It's GREAT to hear from you!!! We were just wondering where you were the other day.
But what does that mean? Hopefully you'll be back tomorrow. Helloooo, we just got you back and now you're talking about leaving again. I THINK NOT, young lady. STICK AROUND. If everybody went MIA when they were struggling, this would be one very quite board.
But really, all kidding aside, I'm thrilled that you're back. I'm sorry that you've had a rough go of it. None of that failure talk. You only have to be successful at this one time. The final time. And there's no reason on earth why this time shouldn't be *thee* time. You've pinpointed your trouble spot, now you need to work on it and keep that momentum going. You CAN do this Tiffany. I know it for sure. :hug:
Good luck to you. *See* you tomorrow and tomorrow after that, and tomorrow after that......... :smug:

Tricia - Congrats on ONEderland girlie!
Robin - I've missed you so much! You are so inspiring, more than you'll ever know. Scratch that "hopefully" part. I WILL be back tomorrow, for sure.
You girls still rock!

Hi, glad you found your way back.

Tiffany! You're back!:hug: I missed you. Yes, this time is for good.:D

Hey, Tiffany! Glad to see you back. You're not the only one who wanders away and then comes back when she needs more inspiriation or has regained everything she had lost before. *hugs* I'm back after a long time away, too, so I know how it goes.
I'm looking forward to your posts.

Hi Tiffany! :wave:
All of us are taking this new lifestyle one day at a time!!! I know you can do it! Sometimes I have to take it one hour at a time!! We can do this thing choice by choice by choice!!!!! :halffull:

Tiffany!!! You have CERTAINLY been missed! It is so good to see you posting again!!
As for feeling like such a failure - we have ALL been there, done that, have the T-shirts. BUT....you really aren't a failure because #1 you didn't go back to square one (which definitely could have happened) and #2 you came back to the place that you knew would give the support you need to get back on track and #3 You still have the desire to accomplish your weight goal. So see!!?? You are not a failure. You may have taken a detour, yes...but failed, NO!
Don't focus on the past, it will only haunt you.
Don't worry about tomorrow, it may never happen anyway.
But DO concentrate on TODAY. It is all you have to work with.
You are going to make it. We are here for you whenever you need to vent, get a "pick-me-up" or share a success. :hug: I look forward to seeing your posts AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN. :D
P.S. Feel free to join us on the Christmas Gift Contest thread! We are having a contest to lose X number of pounds by Christmas day. :D

Hi Tiffany! Welcome back, my name's Lyn. I have done the same thing over and over. I started "trying" to lose weight in December of last year, lost and gained, lost and gained, and by August I was 5 lbs heavier!! But finally on this last try, it stuck. Something clicked in my head. And that is all it takes. Get your head in it, build up some momentum, and never leave :)
I am rooting for ya!
TWENTY FIVE pounds gone!

Love the Avy. I often use her as well! I wasn't here before so we've not met in a thread but I wanted to send you a note:
Keep your head up!
As for the bounce back effect:
I said it in another thread... Don't let Monday still be kicking your *** on Friday. Well hunny... It is no longer Friday. It is Saturday and you've taken the right step toward making another go of it. This is a damn hard fight and the fact that you keep at it means a heck of a lot more than most who sit there saying "Oh! It is so easy to do XXXXXXX" about something that can be so damn hard.
You've only failed when you stop trying at all!

I don't post much, but I remember your posts, and I'm glad you're back! :hug: Please keep coming back.
