Sorry to hear about the gain. You're not alone. I lost over 100 pounds and gained 23 back. To lose the weight once is a tremendous accomplishment. You can lose those pounds again. This time it's less than half of what you did before. Be encouraged! You can do it.

:welcome2:

Sorry about your regain . . . you're definitely not alone! I lost about 80 lbs a few years ago and gained it all back . . . so good for you for taking control again relatively quickly.

I know how you feel. I lost 80 pounds in 2007-2008 and gained back 40. But I'm back here and I will do it this time. *hug*

You are so not alone. I lost over 100 lbs in 1999-2000 then 50 more in 2003 then gained it all back PLUS some by 2007. Here I am, doing it again--but permanently this time. I finally figured out several things, including the fact that food is neither a punishment or a reward ~ it's just food ~ and the only power it has over me is the power I give away to it, and I refuse to give any power to food. Best of luck to you ~ you'll do great!!!

You can definitely do it!!! You lost the weight once so you know you can do it again. Look back at the things happening in your life when the re-gain started and how you dealt with it and have a plan of action this time on how to combat it. This is definitely a journey for all of us and we all know that you have to sometimes fight to keep the weight off. Best of luck to you!

:welcome3: back! I have been there and done that several times myself. The important thing is you are not allowing it to beat you and you came back. It is a life long learning process.

sorry about the gain, but looking at the silver lining - it was 48 lbs, and NOT the full 100... or 110... you're still DOWN over 50 lbs, so that's a good thing!!

and yes we're still here :) I don't know about the rest of you, but even if I weight 110 lbs (ha, yah that's happening) I'll STILL be here !!!

haha thats what i meant. if i had continued coming to this site (and generally doing the things that i did to lose it in the first place) i know i would have kept it off.

thanks for the encouragement guys!

Congratulations on coming back before all of the weight was regained!!!

Like so many others here, I lost a significant amount of weight (95 lbs) a few years ago and put it all back on (+more). I, too, plan to keep coming back here regularly when (note to self: yes, WHEN) I get to my goal weight. The biggest lesson I learned from this last time around is that for me, weight isn't something that will ever be 'solved'. Eating well for a healthy body might become normal, but I will never trust that my food demons, lurking in the shadows, are ever gone. That was my big mistake the last time and it took just one (albeit significant) personal crisis for the demons to return.

You will do it!!!

You're in the right place. Welcome back.

DCHound - I loved your comment about "food is just food" I came to a similar conclusion and it has really given me a lot of peace in dealing with the whole food thing
