Hello everyone. I was a daily visiting member about two years ago, but then I started building a house and changed jobs and .... In other words, life ran me over, and I didn't log in for quite a while. :( I was in the '30-Somethings' group at that time. I no longer qualify. So now here I am. I love this site, and missed chatting with everyone. And I really do feel this site helped me lose what I did last time. I had lost about 25 lbs, had about 25 to go when I stopped checking in. I lost another 10, but then gained it back this summer. There should be a physics law that says if a person tries really hard to lose weight, and they succeed, they shouldn't find that weight again. It should stay lost. Obviously, I live in fantasy land sometimes.

I'm going to try and log in daily again, or at least a few times a week. It helps to know I'm not in this alone. Thanks for 'listening.' -Robin

Time for a change

I know what you mean by life running you over I've been there. Congrats on building your own home, it must be nice to have things done the way you want them as opposed to the way some developer wants to build them. Come on over and see us in onederland, we're a pretty friendly although small group.

I'm back again too! And this is my last year to be in the 40-somethings!
I like your philosophy about losing and 'finding' the weight again. I seem to have found mine, too. Gee, why can't it go to the land of lost socks??

I'm going to be in the 40 somethings in four more months... I gained back some of the weight I lost too, when I hung out on this site daily I lost over 10 lbs in a few months. I shouldn't have gained it back, it should stay LOST, I agree. So here I am posting daily as well...
