Hi Everybody.. Happy Wednesday.

Well, some of you who know me, know that I have disappeared for awhile. Without going into details I have been in a bad way for the last 4 or so months. I have been feeding my depression and ultimately put back on 30 pounds. (I cant believe I put that much back on). For the last few weeks I have been trying to get back on plan but I just cant seem to stay on it. I could not bring myself to get on the scale for the last month but I finally did that. (one hurdle down). I was having a hard time coming on here and fessing up to my gain. (two hurdles down). To be honest I was embarrassed to come back here after gaining.

But I really think I need all of your help to get to goal and to phase off properly. I know for a fact that coming to this forum in the past had helped me to stay on plan especially when I was having a hard time. So After the holidays I am going to start on the plan again and I am asking all you wonderful people for support.

And last but not least... I have missed many of you on here, so many times I wanted to come on and say Hi and see what everyone has been up to and to see all the wonderful losses and pictures but shame is a powerful thing.

So i am back ... If you will have me

Welcome back Cadu. We started about the same time before.

There is no shame on being human, having struggles, having to admit them, and coming back. It is good to have you back again and I'm there to support you every step.

I can understand the desire to wait until after the holidays to start full-on but I think you could also benefit from making a few new choices now and not waiting. I.e. skip a few of the things you may want to indulge in now. The sooner your OP, the sooner your journey through IP will end up in maintenance.

Happy Holidays!

WELCOME BACK!!

I would go looking for you once in a while! :) It takes 20 seconds of courage to make a decision to change your life. You stepped on the scale, 20 seconds down. You posted, another 20 seconds. You're full of courage lately :D

No shame at all! We are all human and these slip ups are part of life. Good luck meeting goal again!

Welcome back Cadu. You've been missed. :hug: Many of us have commented from time to time, wondering how you were.

Sorry to hear that you've had some problems with maintenance, but this is definitely the best place to be now that you've decided to get back on track. Now that you've made the decision to jump back in, you'll be back 100% in no time at all. So glad that you've reconnected.

Have a good Holiday Season, and I look forward to seeing you once again active here.

WOW. I was just thinking about you yesterday. Having been on 3FC for almost a year now, I see so many come and go. I hate when that happens. We all know "stuff" happens and I'm so glad to hear you've turned a corner and come back here to make a change. You can do it. You were always so impressive. I know you can move right back there again.

We love you :hug::hug::hug::hug::hug::hug:
We're here for you.

Welcome back Carol! I haven't been posting much at all. When I can't sleep at night I come here to read posts and it's like visiting with family and catching up. For every response you get, I bet there are 20 other lurkers (me, most of the time) that are so happy to see that you are back. I can relate to your feelings. I'm in the same boat having gained much of the weight back since August. I always struggle this time of year -- I'm pretty sure its a kind of seasonal affective disorder. After Dec. 21, I start to get happier and more motivated knowing that the days are getting longer again. So, here's to the light and the lite!

Cadu!!!!!
From one Jersey Girl to another, How are ya?!!!!
I started right after you and when you dropped off I was a little concerned. So many times someone would ask, "Anyone heard from Cadu ?" You were such a huge part of this board and one of the main reasons I stayed 100%. Don't beat yourself up. You took the first step by admitting to yourself and to all of us that you need help. I'm sure that wasn't easy, but look at what you got in return.....more love, understanding and encouragement than you could have ever imagined. But in reality, we were here for you all along! Enjoy the holidays with your family and when you're ready, jump back on! We'll be here. One day at a time!! You can do this!!!

Welcome back, Cadu. I have thought about you often too. For the eight months I have been on here I have seen many come and go which is scary. I am close to phasing off and it's scary. Glad you're back and good luck and Merry Christmas!

That is me crossing the finish line at the San Antonio Half Marathon in November! 13.1 miles in exactly 2:05, I have also finished the Dallas Half (in 1:58) and Shiner Half (in 2:10) since then!

That's awesome Liz! I would like to run a 5K again, I don't think I ever want to run more than three miles again, I just don't like it. But I'd like to get back to that point again. Good for you. You look awesome.
