Hi, I don't normally do intro threads, but since I've actually been here before I thought I would stop by and say hi. Some of you might have known me as Pita. Because I've been away for so long and have had some major life changes, I really needed this new start and thought using my real name was a good way to begin. ;)

I refuse to say "this time I'm going to lose my weight," because I've already said that like a million-zillion times!! However, it really is time to get real and face my weight loss for the life-sucking obstacle it is! :mad:

A friend recently gave me some tough love by saying that if I really wanted to lose weight I would lose it. She said that I must not REALLY mind being fat or I wouldn't be fat. As painful as that was to hear, I do have to admit that she is right. I've been going over and over that in my head and as of yesterday changes are being made.

Wish me luck and it really is so great to be back on this board where wonderful advice and awesome support are so readily given. :hug:

I've been here before too and I need to re-introduce myself. But first welcome back. Good luck on your journey!

Thanks Devsmama. I remember you from you avatar picture. :) Let's journey this thing together and maybe even drag back a few lurkers who were once active posters and losers!

Hi Teresa66 and Devsmama!

I'm a "Teresa" too. And even though I wasn't on 3FC before, I'm also ready to lose this weight once and for all.

The best thing I can say for myself right now is that I'm not giving up. I've been at it since last September and even though I have made some big blunders, I haven't done what I used to do and just stop. And then let years go by while I gained more...
No more gaining.

Teresa, that's a good friend you have there and I also commend you for allowing yourself to hear her.
I wish you so much success. You seem to really be ready.

I hope I can lend some support!

Take care,
