View Full Version : For the last time

I have promised myself that this is the last time I will re-introduce myself to all you beachers. I don't know if anyone recognizes my username and I know there are some newer members so i'll introduce myself

I'm Jackie, mother of 5 wonderful sons and married almost 20yrs! I was having some medical issues in 2007 and realized how important it was for my health to change my lifestyle and diet. I was/am prediabetic and predisposed to heart issues. I did wonderfully then and dropped a lot of weight.. 58lbs If I remember correctly. Then I went on a vacation, started eating off plan foods and continued to do so when I came home. I turned myself back into the junkfood junkie that I was and then kept trying to get on plan but making any excuse I could to grab the junk. I've re-introduced myself a few times and stayed for a few days... until I blew the plan.

This time is different, I am commited to changing my ways again. I'm in a biggest loser competition at work and I intend to win it. And.. I want to look at least a litter slimmer for my vacation in March.. and will not go off plan this time at all. :carrot:

Hi Jackie,

It's nice to meet you. Your story sounds pretty familiar to me, too. But we're both back on track now. :D

Welcome back!
I think all of us can relate to your story. I'm new to this thread but done SBD before and kept half off for a couple years. But like you, when vacation started I started eating everything and never stopped.
Good luck!
You can do it!
