Congratulations, Linda! This is your year! :yay:

03-03-2008, 11:08 AM
OMG Linda that is awesome!!!!! You are doing so great. I know we both fell off the wagon (more like got run over it and beat up by it) about the same time and look at us. We finally found our groove. You are doing so well!!!!
:bravo: :broc:

03-03-2008, 11:31 AM
That is fantastic!! :D

You have put forth alot of effort - and it showed at the scale. Congrats.


03-03-2008, 12:34 PM
Thanks everybody!

Dawnyal, we sure did, didn't we??? but we're doing this together again, and we can make it!!!
Funny how you can let that damn wagon can drive over you for a year or two, or more, before you stand up, brush yourself off and jump back on the darn thing!!!


03-03-2008, 12:38 PM
Yippee!!!! Congrats!

03-03-2008, 12:38 PM
Congratulations!!!!!!!! :)


03-03-2008, 12:42 PM
Wow, awesome job! How long have you been dieting? I mean, were these your first two months here, or have you had longer to practice staying on the wagon?

03-03-2008, 01:06 PM
Emmy...good question ;) I've been here on 3fc for years. Twice before I've made it halfway to my goal and then lost it and gained it all back plus some.

The last time I went off track was when a huge tree fell on my Mom's house, while our kids were sleeping over. The entire focus of my life at that time, switched to making sure my Mom had a new home to live in...fundraising (over $11,000..I'm very proud of that!) and helping with insurance company etc...
Thank goodness today my Mom has a beautiful new home and I can once again focus completely on myself and my health.

This time around I have been on plan since January 2nd, so two months.

I've had tons of practice being both on, and off the wagon!


03-03-2008, 02:27 PM
Congratulations to you! I can't wait until I'm able to say "I lost 20lbs!" It is a HUGE number.

03-03-2008, 04:26 PM
Congrats Linda!! You rock !! :)


03-04-2008, 05:23 PM
Wow, I'm glad your mother was okay! Good for you for being willing to sacrifice your own well-being to help her out. And even better for you that you're back on the wagon now!

Thanks so much Emmy :) Yes...thank goodness that my Mom and kids were OK, and not hurt physically! I am thankful for that every day of my life!
