Dear Just Attitude -
Welcome, I too am new to this site, but feel like I have been here my whole life. It is refreshing that people write what I have actually felt. As far as your kids not needing you anymore - I have an 18 & 16 year old. Trust me, they need you now more than ever. Also - you should never consider yourself a failure. Remember, we don't fail, we just hit bumps in the road!! You could do what I did.......I had ANOTHER BABY!!! Boy - did people think I was crazy!!! She is 17 months old now and I never have a dull moment...ummm...I never have a moment period! Wouldn't trade her for the world.
Just know that this site is here for you. They are kind, friendly, and wise. Surround yourself with good people, happy thoughts, and LOUD music!!! Good luck in all your ventures - Hope to talk to you sometime! Have a SUPER great day!!!

Hi, September Breeze, just wanted to congratulate you on your baby!!! How cool that she'll have two grown-up siblings to help show her the ropes as she grows! :)
Just Attitude: Hi, again! :wave:

Just wanted to let you know that there is always room for you no matter where you decide to go. You could be a part of more than one little group. No commitment to sticking with just one. They're ALL great, and we're all here to help and support each other.
You may find other threads that feel more of what you're looking for than others, but don't ever feel like you won't fit in.
I'm with the Jaded Ladies and you can find us way down in the clubs and groups area.
So feel free to just jump right in and start chatting away. You'll always have a friend here.

Hi Just Attitude! Just want to welcome you and it took a lot of attitude to introduce yourself and write your own thread. You can join in any thread that interests you...hey, that's what I do. I just looked on the exercise thread. Find one that interests you and just introduce yourself or start your own. Sometimes people respond and sometimes the threads sort of poop out after a while but then you can just try to restart interest again. You have support here and we like to know how you are doing. I agree with what the other people on this thread have said so far and could not have said it better. You are important and now that you have more time, you can visit here more. Also, check out the WW threads now that you are doing that program. I made it to Lifetime over a decade ago and I still follow the program, although I have to learn the new flexpoints now. J.A., you will succeed this time if you believe in yourself. I get depressed too, but if I can help other people then I feel better about myself. That's why I love this website. Keep going, and let us know how you're doing.

Hi JustAttitude, Amarantha, SeptemberBreeze,MNJ, & Musicgal,
I am now sort of. I have joined ww a ton of times. Once I lost 35 and gained it all back. I just rejoined ww last week for another try. I figure that one time it will stick. My kids are now back to school too.
SeptemberBreeze, I am sort of like you. I have a 22yr. son who is now engaged, at 18 yr old daughter that just started college and then that late last child who is a 8yr old son that is in 2nd grade this year. Before the last child I felt like the older two didn't really need me that much and I got pretty depressed. (10 years later came Jake.) I love him dearly but what I wouldn't give for some quit time off and on. lol.
I would love to meet up in some room to chat with you. (Where?) Please let me know if you want to buddy up. I would love the support too. If you want you could email me at email@example.com sometime.
