100 lb. Club - Does anyone else get sad?

View Full Version : Does anyone else get sad?

03-23-2013, 07:25 PM
I was reading around the boards and noticed I'm not seeing a few who were around when I started. It makes me sad. I wonder what their doing, where they are, if they are still on track. I've only been around a little while but I feel sad to not see them around.

I've been wondering the same things too & hoping all is well!

Same here! There is one in particular I remember who was very young and really struggling. I often wonder how she and the others are doing.

Definitely, I wonder. The year I stayed away from the boards, I put on 40 pounds of the 70 I'd lost years prior.

I also can't help but wonder how people are doing when I don't see them around if I'm used to seeing them. I know the first time I joined I was maybe around 260, but I stopped coming around and enough time passed that I forgot my name & password. When I came back and made a new account, my high weight was 306! I hope not everyone that leaves has the same experience, but it seems to be a common theme. I definitely send good wishes if I notice someone missing.

There are 2 regular posters that are both MIA and I wonder about them all the time. I hope they are ok and doing well with their diet. I don't want to call them out by name but...

Hopefully if any of them are lurking maybe they will draw some comfort and strength in knowing we're thinking and rooting for them.

Yes- I think about posters all the time. This community is very much a part of my "real" life. It's also why I'm surprised that more people didn't join in on the Memory Time Capsule:

Even if just to say, "Hey Future Me! I knew I would be reading this! You're doing great!"

If there is anything I can promise myself...it's that I can come here nearly every day to check in.

I'm glad Ophelia came back after her initial post, because it took her 3 days or so to come back and reply- and I was wondering if she would come back and start her weight loss journey. I remember April Snow's first post back- and now she's totally rocking it. I wonder about Elvis TTC. In fact, a few days ago, I was thinking about you at the the gym- thinforme, wondering when your stitch pain went away.

I truly care/think/wonder about the ladies here all the time.

Lunar I was thinking about you today and the stress you've had recently also I was glad to see the update. I agree your all part of my real life. The stich went away shortly after TOM was over. I went into the gyno waiting on results for that now.

03-23-2013, 10:03 PM
I wanted to join that one but can't upload photos

03-23-2013, 10:11 PM
which reminds me that I need to make an appointment with the gyno. I haven't had a pap in over three years. Were you just doing some routine stuff? Or checking something out in particular?

03-23-2013, 10:18 PM
That's me out. I was enjoying lurking on this one too!

03-23-2013, 10:21 PM
Routine stuff and getting in line to set up some more involved testing. I hadn't been in about five years myself figured it was time.

03-23-2013, 10:21 PM
I was thinking about this the other day. There is one person in particular I was wondering about, and i hope she's still lurking even if she's not posting.

I was also thinking about April Snow, because I know she's dealing with a lot right now. I'm sending out good vibes and hope that she and everyone else who needs them feels them.

This is a pointless reply I know, but LOL

03-23-2013, 10:21 PM
LOL Ian, sorry didn't mean to girl out the post on you stick around I am sure it will switch back over soon.

03-24-2013, 12:31 AM
I do too, it'll cross my mind when I see a name that reminds me of someone, but I hope that they're like ME! I'm not around so much anymore but I'm doing ok, i've maintained, I'm even 5 or 6 pounds under my goal.

I'm busy and don't have as much time as I did, but I still READ the boards every day! I don't post so much anymore, I don't want to be like the creepy college guy who comes back to tell the high school kids what it's like LOL

This is a pointless reply I know, but LOL

Haha. It made me laugh too. Sometimes I forget who might be lurking, because I'm just thinking..."oooh...thinkthin is like..sitting on my sofa across from me."
Not so much the case. Haha.

When I went MIA I got some PMs (which I think also came to my email) and even though I didn't always reply they meant a lot to me. I was just super stressed and busy and didn't want to admit I was off plan.

This time I plan to stick around even if I go horribly off plan - hopefully that won't happen. :)
