Hi everyone! It's been a long, long, LONG time since I posted here. I was wondering if anyone remembered me. I'm sorry I've been away for so long. There has been a lot of things going on that I have had to get a handle on. Nothing life threatening, just major changes.

The first was that the company I had been at for almost 7 years was closed down at the end of June. Luckily, I started working at my new job very soon afterwards. I've been trying to get used to the new job. It's taking me awhile, but I'm starting to get a grip on it. The people here are very nice, so it's been okay.

Well, to start my usual "beg for forgiveness please take me back I can't live without any of ya'll" speech, I got embarressed, as usual. Anyone here who knows me from way back knows that I do that A LOT. Seemed like every time anything major came up in my life, or what I perceived as major, I would fall of the wagon and be right back where I was. Actually, I would be right back where I was with a few extra lbs to spare. This last time I fell off the wagon wound me up around 306 lbs. Not a good thing. I have since managed to lose about 10 lbs, but it's been a fight the whole way. But I realized two major things. The first was that it is a lot people fighting the fight with people who understand about what you are going thru - mainly all of you! I've missed you all terribly. The second is that I just turned 29 on September 28th. As corny as it sounds, this is my last year in my 20's. Sooo...I would like to go into my 30's looking better than I did in my 20's. Does that sound too terribly strange?

Anyway, that is my new goal. I plan on taking it one day, minute, meal at a time. I hope that I can do things to inspire all of ya'll as much as you have inspired me in the past. Anyone have any objections to me trying this for a third round?

Thanks all!

M'Chelle

Hi M'Chelle!

So good to meet you! Everyone is right. . .this is a great place to interact with people who truly, truly do understand and who can relate and share everything with each other!

It's hard to find that sometimes in our own busy lives, but here on the web, there are plenty of loving, supporting friends!

*smiles*
