Hello all. Maybe there are still some folks here who remember me. I started back in August 2007 at 278 pounds, got down to 214 last July, and then went off my rocker. I didn't give UP, but I battled for the entire past year: up some, down some, up, down... eating healthy part of the time, exercising sometimes, with stretches of eating junk. Gosh this has been hard.

So last week I got up to 245. When I saw that number on the scale I almost had a heart attack. I turned 40 this month and I know this ain't gonna get any easier. I just have to get back to basics, do what I know works (calorie counting, eating lots of veggies and fruit, and exercise) and get this fat off me. I am in a lot of pain everyday from my knees, and the weight is NOT helping.

So I'm back, hoping for support and friendship again. I'm going on vacation soon, too, so I have to get a grip ahead of time. So far I am back down 4 pounds to 241.

Thanks for still being here.

Hey Lyn! That's what our trip is all about! CONTINUING no matter how steep or rocky the path gets. You veered off the path but you still know the way back obviously in your four pound drop. Glad you are back. Come on, lets go!

Hi Lyn. I'm glad you're back and even happier to know that you've recommitted to losing the weight and becoming a healthier and fitter person and one with less pain and more joy.

Calorie counting, veggies and fruits and exercise - yeah - it DOES *work* pretty darn well, doesn't it?

Welcome back! I look forward to hearing of your progress as you head back to *work*. :)

Thank you all SO MUCH for the warm welcome back!! It made me LOL about those who read my blog so I "wasn't gone!" You guys really made my day... totally!! I am thrilled to see so many familiar faces :)

cfmama!! woman, we weigh almost the same! I am so proud of you, staying here plugging along without me!!

I missed this great place. I just got too caught up in stressful stuff, let it get to me, regained a total of 31 pounds. But I am done with all that now, and eating healthy/biking daily. I did a lot of "mental/emotional" work over the past year and I feel totally ready to lose this weight for good!

I know! I was like holy cow! I weigh what Lyn does now and when I STARTED your weight seemed so freaking unattainable to me! Let`s plug and plod together my friend :)
