100 lb. Club - Just wanted to let you ...
12-09-2007, 07:11 PM
Hi folks. I just wanted to let you guys know that I will no longer be a moderator here at the 100 lb club and at 3FC.
I am definitely one of these all or nothing people and lately I've been so incredibly busy that I have not been able to devote the same amount of time to 3FC as I had in the past. I used to work mainly from my home and had lots of access to the internet. That is no longer the case. I've mentioned this before that I now work in a gym. I love the job immensely, but it does take me away from my home and the computer. Not only that, but for the gym, I run a weight loss program and I need to devote lots of time to get it up and running. I suppose that will ease as I get the hang of it more. I also have another new venture. I am now doing one on one weight counseling with clients on a weekly basis. I had my first client last week and I just signed on another one. It's very exciting to me. I hope this is a business that I can really build upon.
So therefore, I just don't have the amount of time to devote to this wonderful place as I used to. I took my job here very seriously and now I feel I can no longer give it a 100% effort. I would absolutely hate if I'd "miss" anything that a moderator should be handling due to the fact that I'm just not here as ofen as I need to be. I missed a birthday the other day and that is not something I'm too keen on doing again. So therefore I am stepping down as moderator.
I'll still be here each and every day. I'm certainly not posting like I used to, again time constraints, but I WILL be here. Thank you all for the wonderful support you have given me as a member and as a moderator. I look forward to spending many more years together supporting one another in our ongoing efforts to get and remain at a healthy weight. Robin :hug:

Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to helping people, Robin. You are truly an inspiration to us all.
I am so happy for you that not only did you lose so much weight, you even managed to find a career out of it by helping people do the same! Lots of luck and happiness to you, you deserve it. :hug:

Rockinrobin best of luck to you on your new adventure of weightloss counseling. Heres hoping it takes off into a big business for you, you are living proof that weightloss works and your clients will be getting one of the greatest teachers of all. You go girl, become a lil entreprenuer, having your own business is the best, something in the weightloss department is definitely your true calling! Rock on rockinrobin, continue to inspire..

It is understandable that you have to focus on your work. I have read many of your posts and found your story to be incredible. You have given so much to us here at 3FC.
good luck and hope to see you posting from time to time.

Thank you for your help and encouragement. I'm glad your reasons for stepping down are good ones. Best of luck to you in your new endeavors. Hopefully you will still be checking in with the chicks when you can!

Robin, Thank you for all you've done for us around here. Sounds like exciting things are happening in your life. Enjoy yourself and keep in touch.

Robin..best of luck to you in all of your new adventures and endevours! :) I am new here...but, I 've read your story and it's very inspirational. I wish you well in everything...and look forward to seeing you here once in a while at the forum.
12-10-2007, 09:33 AM
Thanks folks once again for all of your support and encouragement. What an incredible group you (we) are.
The changes that have been occuring for me have been very exciting, a little nerve wracking at times as all new things are, but very exciting nevertheless. I never would have dreamed anything like this could be possible for me. But it just goes to show you.......
And let me again make it perfectly clear, I'm not leaving this place. I'll just be here at a smaller capacity.
12-10-2007, 09:34 AM
Best wishes Robin-Enjoy your new journey. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
Good luck and go get 'em.
:yikes:ROBIN.... what are we going to do without you. :dunno: I just want to say thank you for all the help that you have given me. I still have a long way to go but you are truely my inspiration. You are so wise about this. You always know what we need. Lord knows that I have had a lot of rough nights. And you were always there to lift my spirits up. So thank you for that. Good luck with your new endeavor. :hug:

I think it's great that you're starting new ventures to help others have the kind of success you've had with weight loss. Your will to help others amazes me. I mean, starting up a weight loss program and having one on one counseling? Wow! I'm sure that they'll learn a lot. :)
We can't be greedy and keep you all to ourselves, I suppose. :lol:
12-10-2007, 12:53 PM
Robin, I'll miss you as a moderator, but good on you for realising that you haven't got the time to do the job effectively. I know that you're not going to go away - heck, we couldn't keep you away! - and will see you around the place. Hope the counselling goes just as well as the job seems to be!

Robin, Thanks, from a newbie (who isn't even posting on this thread yet), for your class and style moderating this thread.
And best wishes for your new adventures. It's great to see someone succeed in losing weight, and even better seeing them rise to the opportunites that follow the weight loss.

Thank you for all you have done! You are incredible and any of your clients will be LUCKY to have you as their guide! :cp:
12-10-2007, 01:36 PM
:hug: You will be missed Robin. When I first started posting this spring, you really inspired me to keep up those first hard weeks. I know you can't work and do this "job" here also, so I understand completly, it still doesn't mean that I won't miss you.
12-10-2007, 02:05 PM
Glad to hear that you will still be here, even if it's not as a moderator. It's also good to hear that you are sharing all you've learned with others. :hug:
12-10-2007, 02:14 PM
Glad that you'll still be on as a member....Thanks for all you've done, and best wishes to you on the job!
12-10-2007, 02:37 PM
Congrats on these new and exciting times in your life! You must be so happy to be able to help others in the capacity you will be able to there! Glad you're not "leaving" us. You are a HUGE inspiration to me.
12-10-2007, 02:56 PM
Robin, you've done a great job as moderator, and I'm certainly glad to hear that you won't be going anywhere! Taking the time you need for you, and for the things going on in your life is one of the lessons each of us must learn during this journey. Spreading yourself too thin is one of the things that leads many to over eat and/or gain weight. Do what you have to do for you to stay healthy...and we all look forward to hearing your continued input on the boards!
12-10-2007, 03:11 PM
You're an anspiration to me Robin. I am glad you will still be around, posting, because it just wouldn't be the same without you. Thanks for everything!
12-10-2007, 05:19 PM
Best wishes on your new venture, Robin!
12-10-2007, 06:19 PM
Good luck with your new career I'm sure you will do fantastic, and thank you for your efforts concerning 3fatchicks. I'm glad you are still going to post from time to time.
12-10-2007, 08:12 PM
Thank you for all your support while I have been here. You are an inspiration for sure.
Good luck with your new business venture. How exciting for you!
Keep us posted on how it goes.
12-10-2007, 09:02 PM
Oh Robin, I can't thank you enough for all the support you gave me on the way to my goal. I LOVED sharing this journey with you, and I'd say you probably were a bigger contributor to my success than anyone, even people in my "real life." I've been so inspired by you, and you've been there for me every step of the way. I'm so glad you'll be sharing your knowledge and experience with even more people. I can't think of a better job for you, or a better person for the job! I know you'll still be around, so this isn't goodbye, but we will miss you as a moderator. :hug:
12-10-2007, 11:14 PM
Thanks for all your help and inspiration. It's meant so much to so many people.
Your new venture sounds perfect for you. Those clients are lucky to have you.
12-10-2007, 11:19 PM
Robin, thank you for everything. I'm glad you'll still be around as a member. I admire you.
12-11-2007, 04:37 PM
No problem Robin! *hugz*
