Some of you might remember me. I was here active a couple of years ago and I sort of disapeared.

I've been a success story and a failure and when things have gone bad, I've shut myself from people. I hope to not do that again.

In 2004 I lost around 170 pounds and was down to 283. (I'm a 6'4 guy). The weight came back, with a vengenence, and in September of 2007 I was up to 446 pounds.

Since then, I'm down to 364 pounds.

If you will forgive my flakyness and will have me back, I'd like to stick around.

Hi Matt, I don't think we've crossed paths before, but I'm glad to see you back! I flake on this community periodically and they always take me back, no questions asked, so I think you'll find people are thrilled to see you again. Congratulations on getting back down to 364! The great news is that you've done it once, so you know you can do it again.

Hi Caroline,

You are a fellow LJer! I'm there as well (username is anomie666) but weight loss is only a small part of what I talk about there. Thanks for welcoming me back!

Indeed I am, though 'thistoo' is only my weight loss LJ. I have another, more general LJ that I use for regular life stuff (it used to be fandom stuff, but I'm mostly out of that now). So yes, LJers unite! Or something. ;) I've been on there so long I don't think I remember how not to be.

Yes, I definitely remember you. Welcome back!

I encourage everyone who has lost some weight and maintained that weight loss to check out the Maintainer's Forum. It's a great place to get the scoop on maintenance, which, from my perspective, can be more difficult than weight loss.

Welcome back! I have "flaked out" more times than I can remember. I've always been welcomed back. I've noticed that there are quite a few people who keep posting, even if they are going through a bad patch. I hope you stick around.

Hey!

Its my friend's kid. I thought I would drop the little one, but they told me I had to hold her and then they blackmailed me by taking a photo. :)

Hi Matt,

I've only been around about 9 months so we hadn't met from before. It's always good to see more guys around here.

So Matt, what's your plan? How are you doing it? Congrats on the 82 lbs you've already lost!!

Here's one thing you might have missed...I'm pretty sure lessofsarahtolove was around when you were. http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/showthread.php?t=133059&highlight=sarah
