100 lb. Club - Starting Over (again...)
Hi all, I've posted a couple times, reading lots though. I am really inspired by all of you. I'm trying to find a couple forums to settle into. I am on SBD (sort of ). Seems I keep finding and losing the same 5 lbs. It is overwhelming to have so much to lose. I lost 80 pounds about 8 years ago after my first marriage ended - finally looked after ME :dancer: Then I met my DH, had 3 beautiful babies, and woke up almost 40yo and 100 lbs overwt. Think I forgot how to look after me :o
Im looking to offer support and get some too! ;) I hope to meet other chicks like me and make some friends along the way. Have an awesome day everyone!

wip - Welcome to 100 club! I look forward to helping you with your weight loss journey. I'm kind of doing a SBD/WW thing. I have to tweak it since I got super dizzy on P1. Now I'm basically just watching my sugars.

Welcome!! I find this place so very encouraging -- whether I need a shoulder to cry on, a laugh to brighten my day, a pat on the back for a success, or a kick in the pants. I'm on three "weight-loss" boards, but this is the one I check most often. Post early and post often. The more you do, the more entwined in the community you become. That's very helpful when the road gets bumpy.
I look forward to learning more about you.

Welcome Wip! I've only been here a month but I think it's a great board. Everyone is very nice and helpful. It's fun to see everyone's progress and hear their stories. Good luck with your weight loss!

I am fairly new to 3FC and have found the 100+ board a great place to be. I feel really inspired by other people stories and the journaling and points challenges really do help in keeping me on track. I had the experience of gaining 10 lbs. a year for 25 years and not really knowing what to do. The best topyou. I look forward to seeing you around. Denise aka activeadventurer

Welcome wip. You'll find all the support you need right here. Everyone here is so sweet and wonderful. Post more, because I'd love to hear about your weight loss sucesses as they come.

Welcome Wip - I am glad you are now ready to take care of you again! I hear you when you say about losing the same 5lb again - that was me from the ages of 14-31. Now thankfully I have managed to break the yo yo cycle, it wasn't easy but it is so worth just pressing forward!
All the best
I just checked in after wading thru 1/3 of my house cleaning up after the little whirlwind. (Amazing how much stuff and mess 3 little ones and 1 big one can generate.)
I can't believe all the messages already. Thanks everybody - I'll stay in touch. I have actually remained true to my plan this am. Pretty good since snack for the littles was honeydew melon which I love. Thanks a bunch!! :grouphug:
p.s wip stands for "work in progress"

Welcome Sherri ~ the more the merrier! I think you'll find us a pretty supportive (and, at times, amusing bunch). "Work in Progress" is a wonderful name (I figured it was "whip" and you'd forgotten the "h" :devil: )
I forget who said it (Sandi?) but its so true that every successful person here "started over" one last time :)

Welcome to the forum Sherri! I'm looking forward to seeing more posts from you. :)

Welcome WIP, you've found the right place for incredible support. Please make yourself at home!
Morning - I checked out your blog Beverly. Never heard of one before. Isee your dtr's bday is the same as my son Austin. We had cake and went for dinner last nite with my DH parents. We live about 3-4 hours away from any family. Fell off the healthy eating wagon. I don't think "rainbow chip cake" is on SB! It's a new day though. Is your dtr Emily also Beverly? We call our dtr everything from Em, Emmy, and Emily Anne.
A question for you all/ Being new to this. When do you start another thread? Have an awesome Saturday! :dance:

You can start a new thread with a new topic whenever you want! Usually the first person on the board that sees that there isn't a daily thread started starts it for the rest of us.
Looking forward to getting to know you!

Hi Sherri, yes, her name is Emily Rose (my middle name is Anne BTW). What a coincidence that she and your son share the same b-day, and she and your dd share the same name!! Small world, huh?
Don't worry about the rainbow chip cake because, you're right, today is a brand new day, and a whole new chance to make the best choices possible.
Like Jeanette said, feel free to jump in there and start a new thread, we're always looking for something new (or old) to talk about.

Welcome! This is such a great (and :crazy: ) place! :)
