100 lb. Club - It's me again :)

View Full Version : It's me again :)

Waving faintly desperately. Hello to anyone who remembers me.

It's been a manky kind of year, work a bit strenuous, dogs dying, me pursuing various health issues, chief of which "Do I have lung cancer?" - it now seems probably not, got a recall in September/October to check, but the stress of the investigative process was intense. Oh yes, and - completely out of the blue - I now have someone I'm learning to call "my partner"...... Wow. Apart from some hesitant and unsuccessful forays into online dating (and newspaper dating before the internet was invented) this is my first relationship in 36 years. Wow. It's nice.

However, I've let my weight run rampant again, and peaked about 10 days ago at 219.2, tho today down to 214.8. So, here we go again. I'm going to read around and see how everyone else is doing; maybe look for a Christmas challenge to take me forward.

Good luck, all.

Rosinante, I remember you too! and your travels, and worries about small dogs who were getting older, and how well you did overall. It's great to see you! Sounds like a lot of water flowing under the bridges this year...

Thankyou for all the welcomes!

I'm trying to focus on a Christmas end point - while at the same time focussing on just getting through a day at a time!

welcome back! I remember you also. I'm sorry to hear about your dogs (you had quite a few older ones, right?) but I'm so glad your health scare is just a scare. Congrulations on your new partner.

Thanks for all the messages - and well spotted, Time2lose!

Sigh oh sigh oh sigh.

In the mean time I've gained 10 more pounds but lost 4. This time I've maintained a weight loss way of eating for nearly a week - it's an improvement on August, or on any time this past year. I Will keep trying.

Good luck, everyone.
