Hi everyone... I've been gone awhile and am a little shy about coming back again. Will you have me? I've been good and I promise to stick around to offer others the same support you all gave to me..... PLEASE? :o :?:

Welcome Back Misty!! Good to see you back. I'm sure I can speak for everyone and say that you are welcomed back with open arms. :) :)

I was just ready to post a post identical to yours... I, too, have been gone a loooong time. But I need to come back. For me, I've found that giving support is just as important as getting support when I am trying to lose weight.

So, hopefully, the group will have me back as well :)

Welcome back! Please dont just leave again! Even if you are struggling at least be here to get and give support from others who know what you are going through!

Hey they took me back they will take anyone back LOL. It's good to see I'm not alone. All though it's bad to see we don't stick with what we know works. I'm going to stay around good or bad this time.

LOL, if they kicked out everyone who disappeared for a little while.....I dont think this site would be here. :-) What inspired you to come back if you dont mind me asking? Im feeling very discouraged and cant seem to get motivated. What motivated you?

Hi there. I want to get more involved here too. I don't realize how much I read and don't respond. In my head I'm like yeah, she (or) he did great.. What an accomplishment wow etc. etc. but I never get "verbal" (post) my thoughts. I am going to get better at that. I really need these people!

Welcome back.

Thanks for the kind "welcome backs" :) I am definitely happy & ready to be back...

I had my son, Patton, on November 11, 2003. He's amazing :) The pregnancy was pretty easy overall, but I gained A LOT of weight. I definitely took that "eating for two" saying to heart :( And then, after I had him, I quit working & stayed home. Well, that just gave me free access to the fridge & cupboards all day long. And I took advantage of it. And since it was winter & I had a tiny baby, I didn't get out running or doing any sort of exercise. I haven't even stepped on a scale because I am way too afraid of what the number would be. But I know I've gained a lot of what I lost back. :cry:

But, I'm back & ready to start losing weight again. I'm out of the "funk" I was in after I had Patton & I'm ready to start anew. And I'm grateful I can start again here. :)

Here are some of Patton's 6 month pictures. Can't believe he is already 6 months old!!!

welcome back you 2. I look forward to many posts from ya'll

snowball--I too was in a funk after having William (2-3-4) and it just hit me one day that I couldn't stop saying tomorrow I'll get with the program so I just started and haven't looked back or regretted one moment of it and that was 7 1/2 weeks ago and almost 14 pounds heavier!!

Forgot to add that you have a beautiful son!!!

What a cutie pie!! Thanks for sharing....

05-12-2004, 08:25 PM
Aww he is so cute! Lots of hair!!! My kids were one of my motivation factors in this journey. Kids can be cruel and I didnt want to put them in a situation were kids would pick on them because there mom is so fat. It helped me through some tough times.

Thanks everyone for making me feel that it is ok to come back. I thought I could do this on my own and realized that I can't. I need the support and friendship of other people in the same boat. You all have made me feel very welcome and for that I am grateful. I have been doin alright on my own I guess I have gone down and almost reach my 10% goal but it has been very hard. I'm stalling again and need the boost to keep going. Thanks again everyone I missed you all.
