I haven't posted on 3FC in probably close to 5 years, around the time I got pregnant with my older daughter. I've since had her, and another baby girl as well. Yay! Life is fabulous, but there's no denying the weight I've regained. I *had* lost 90 pounds before the girls came....I've regained 70. I suck, right?

Anyway, I need to come back and get back under control! What's the popular exercise and diet plan these days? Any challenge groups want me? I have a short term goal of 'back under 200' by June 1st, anyone similar? I need accountability, friends, and the support I know is here!

Of course you're welcome back!!!!

I would love to be under 200 by 1 June, but I'm taking it slow and easy. My goal is to be under 200 by middle of August.

Welcome back! We've all been there. Look at my Join Date... I've been here off an on for years, still losing and gaining the same 30-50 pounds.

You can do this! There is so much support here, and encouragement, advice, and old-fashioned kicking-you-in-the-pants when you need it!

So glad to see your post, Vanessa. You are awesome!

Congrats on your babies. What a fun time in your life, and it is great that you are making your own health a priority, too. That will set a great example for your daughters.

I'm new to the site, but not new to weightloss. I have ridden a few loss and gain rollercoaster rides myself. I hope your first day was a good one, and now it's on to the next! :)

The wonderful thing is....that you know you can totally do this! You've done it before! And you have 20 less to lose! AWESOME!

Well, you've got a lot of fellow suckees (is that even a word?), and since I refuse to think of myself as a suckee -- might be a sucker, but not a suckee -- you obviously can't be one either.

Heck, I was impressed that you didn't do what I always have done after a significant weight loss which is, of course, to not only gain it back but to add on another 30-50 pounds. So, welcome back. Think what worked before. And know that you're amongst friends.

Hello and welcome back. I;m sure you'll find it as if you've never left, and the weight will simply melt away.

Thank you! I may change my goal. I did some math today, maybe I need longer. It's all good, as long as I go in the right direction!

Thank you so much! 1999, wow! You have admirable fortitude my friend, good for you! I hope I find a good little niche in here again like I did before. I doubt that will be a problem, I am already feeling more motivated and supported. *warm fuzzies*

You are so right, I could have gone all the way back to 245 and then some. I like your optimism! Thanks!
