last year I started calorie counting I lost nearly 40lbs in 3 months.. and then I fell off the wagon and back on and back off again a few more times through out the year I some how managed to keep most of it off .. well come this past December I came down really sick with pneumonia. I have been off and on steroids from dec-feb . I am finally off of them now. But in these past few months between the steroids, being bed ridden with nothing to do but eat. I gained ALL but about 7 lbs of the weight I lost last year :(.. 3 days ago I decided I'm hoping back on the wagon and for good again! I feel the difference. I can't believe I'm back to being over 300lbs... that 3 is a number I never thought I'd have to see again :(

anyways I kinda felt the need for a confession if you will.. I used to think oh I'll pick up where I left off. I'm not changing my ticker. I'm not telling any one I gained the weight back.. I'll just leave it as is until I catch up again.. but I realize that that is not possible. because I am truly starting all over again!

So heres to starting over again! I WILL do it this time!

Good for you for getting back on the horse so to speak. I am glad you have gotten well. You'll have the ticker moving in the right direction soon.

You are in good company! I fell off the whole plan too. I noticed when I came back in January I would say about 1/4th were gone!! and I still have seen them anywhere. So good for you for coming back.

Welcome back! We have all had setbacks with our weight. The important thing is that you are back and are moving in the right direction.

thanks gals! It's nice I'm not the only one to start all over again! at least the positive side is in the beginning you always loose a lot really quickly with the water weight so seeing the scale go down is always a fun thing to watch!

Here's to starting over! I did just about the same thing you did...lost 40 pounds, then quit. I was on Atkins. Sadly, I gained back everything and then some. :( This time, I decided to just count calories and I feel great about what I'm I'm actually learning how to eat. I started January 19 at 315 pounds, my all time high. But, just look at how far I've come already! ;) Wishing you as much success...or even more! :hug:
