For example ~

One thing I like about my 3FC Friend ~ Shannon in ATL is I can tell she adores her step-son

The things I love about EZMONEY is how loving & committed he is to his Family and The mutts. How he motivates me to get up off my butt and exercise, his sense of humor and that sometimes he remembers my Birthday. :)

The things I love about Hun.e.B is her compassion and levelheadedness, how she is always there to support people even when she doesn't always get it in return, and the fact that she loves me just the way I am. :hug:

I love wardhog and wormwooddoll because they are so supportive of everyone on the chicks in control thread, they are really there for all of us, and always have a kind word, no matter how difficult their own challenges are for them.

One thing I love about my friend Enygirl is that she is totally supportive, while kicking my butt and not letting me get away with ANYTHING at the same time!

Oh, and the rest of you rock too. Too many to name individually.

I could go on and on and on ... and still forget someone and feel badly about it. But I've been thinking ...

I'm Welcome Wagon for April and as I read new folks' intro's, I think about long time posters and think "I wish this new person would go read so&so's posts"... for various reasons.

A couple of times over the last few days, I've thought of Glory87, especially when folks say that they've lost and gained many times over the years. Glory's plan is not fancy. It's not complicated. She eats good, normal, real food. She's calmly assured of her path.

My shout out today goes to Glory87.

I like the enthusiasm and love that Colormerd brings to the threads she is on. I love the encouragment she gives to all of us and how she reaches out when she doesn't hear from someone.

I like the rock solid consistency and kindness of Lori259. Such a lady.

I like Kaplods for her wealth of information and ideas and that she is always quick to share all of it with us.

CFmama is completely rockin' the whole weightloss scene. I enjoy hearing about her journey and what she is up to.

I actually think so much of so many of my 3FC sisters I could probably go on and on.

P.S. I LOVE Jamie JO! Come back when you can!!!!

Kaplods (Colleen) for her thoughtful and intelligent posts. Particularly her post regarding how to eat well on a small budget. A definite keeper!

My fellow 100 pound club members Girly Girl Sebas (Rhonda), BeverlyJoy, and Sandi. Their posts are always compassionate and supportive.

Lastly, maintainers, Meg, Glory, Amanda and Dagmar. You've helped more than you could know.

What I like about Numina is that she has a fantastic sense of humor.

What I like about colormerd is she can get a prayer thru faster than anyone!

What I like about Mainah and CJzee is that they are soooo super supportive and kind.

What I like about grneyedmustang is that we are frequently on the same wavelength in our thoughts..

Wow Roni that was so sweet of you! Seriously that made my day thank you!!

What I love about Diva is that she always remains true to herself and her beliefs no matter what other people try to push on her. I also love that she is so devoted and protective of the ones she loves. Plus she's got the most fantastic wit!

What I love about Karen is her amazing sense of humor and sarcasm, shes the kinda girl you can always have a great time of and yet at the same time she's got a heart of pure gold!

What I love about Lonnie is how she is so sweet and friendly. Sunshine and butterflies surround that girl everyday, I just know it!

What I love about Vix is her ability to be honest and state her opinion with no fear. That right there just proves how strong and smart she is which is, which are two qualities I absolutely admire in her.

What I love about Kara is that she is just FUN!! Full of energy and dare!

LOL...I just realized I dont know any of my girls' 3FC names anymore!

I know right! I couldn't think of Lonnie's 3FC name to save my life! What I love about Kara too is that she is so kind hearted and where I might see a bad quality in someone, she can make me see it in a whole different light. I loooogggeee her!

I DO think butterflies & Sunshine surround Lonnie! I love my little sparkle girl!

Vix reminds me of me, how can not love that?! LOL! :p

I love how Karen just completely surprises me with some of the stuff she says. Totally unexpected sometimes and I have spit water on my keyboard more than once with that one! LOL!

My shout out today goes to Glory87.

Wow - that is so awesome, I am all teary! I can't think of anyone better suited to do the Welcome Wagon - you should always welcome people to 3FC with your kindness, knowledge and warmth (sense of humor, too!). You have been one of my favorite posters forever!

I'm also going to shout out to mandalinn82 for sharing recipes with me. Your chicken parmesan is a frequent request at my house and I always think of it as Mandalinn's Chicken Parmesan (I think I got it out of the 1000 uses for chicken thread). Can't wait to try the pork loin!

These threads are always wonderful, but tough. There are so many people here that I literally depend on every day (I know, some of you must think "get a Live Journal or Blog or something, sheesh woman!"). How can I give special thanks to just two wonderful posters when there are so many amazing, giving, caring people here?

Thanks to EVERYONE who shares their triumphs, plans, snack ideas, struggles, stories, laughs, advice, recipes...oh, and book suggestions (Borntofly, LisaMarie71 and Alinnell especially!)

I don't think I would be a maintainer today without 3FC. I found this board at the exact right time in my life - as I was struggling towards maintenance. This board was the life preserver I grabbed on to and will NEVER let go!

One thing I like about my 3FC Friend CountingDown...or A.I.C.H. (as I call her) SCOOTER is...

I don't think I have ever met anyone more, as us oldies said back in the day.... "solid"...! :)

I haven't been here long enough to feel like I have made "friends" so to speak. Also, I don't feel like I have gotten to know anyone through their posts. I guess that might be because I feel like I am all over ALL the boards/posts. Haven't really had any "conversations". Hopefully that will change and I feel like I have made connections and start to know folks and their personalities.

So far, I am happy with what I see....

Thank you!!!! I like your name too, however, your name is probably your real name and mine is a nickname. You'll love how I got it....

I have 2 older brothers and when I was born my parents were ecstatic that I was a girl....they named me Jocelyn. But I go by Joci (sounds like flossie).

Anyway....My brothers couldn't pronounce it so they called me Johnson. As they got older and obnoxious it became, Jock. Then as time went by and they got even MORE obnoxious, it became Jock Strap. Fortunately, later on they actually started to like me and treat me like a human being and it became Jacque. Like Cousteau, not Jackie.

I don't mind it at all, and friends call me it too. And now sometimes they get funny and call me Jacque Strap (with sort of a french accent)...and ya know, I really don't mind that at all either.

Jacque, one thing I love about you is your sense of humor which is presented clearly in the story of your name :) :hug: welcome to the family?

I like too many things about too many people. One thing I like about Gary is his sense of humor as well as deeply rooted spirituality.

One thing I like about Lori Bell, as mentioned above, is her straight-up style as well as her enthusiasm.

One thing I love about Colleen (kaplods) is her willingness to share her extensive knowledge with the rest of us.

One thing I like about Susan is her friendly nature... Susan, you were one of the first people I remember posting with frequently on this forum when I joined nearly two years ago :eek:

One thing I love about Aphil is her originality.

And of course, I find Meg, Mel, Glory, Mandalinn, Megan, Kim, midwife, Shannon, and all the maintainers to be huge inspiration as well as amazing sources of support.
