....sees you when your sleep
... knows when you're awake
.... knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!!!

No, not Santa! 3FC!

Judging by my profile, 2007 makes my 5th year here at 3FC.

And every year I know 2 things to be true:
1. Can't keep up with the posts come January 1st.
2. Begging for posts come July 1st.

I just caught myself today squeezing into some jeans that the dryer shrunk and cursing myself that I haven't been on the treadmills in MONTHS (gasp!). And the words, "Oh, I'll just wait until January." escaped my lips! BAD GODDESS!

Do you find yourself avoiding logging on to 3FC?
Have you suddenly become a lurker?
Do you vow to "get back in the groove" come the new year?
Did you eat something today because it's "almost the holidays?"
Are you making excuses to not exercise?

Oh yes, then....

You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I'm telling you why
3FC is always around!
3FC is always around!
3FC is always around!

Too true Jessica! (very funny btw). I find the holidays very tough and sure there are a lot of us in the same boat. Not to sound trite, but I think it is this time of year (or when our biggest struggle is) that we need this site the most. I am certainly approaching the holiday season with a plan and not trepidation for the first time in a long long time.

Very well said Jessica.
I am so glad that I am not the only one feeling this way. I have totally become a lurker if I even log on at all. I think its because I'm not doing so good these days.
Thanks for the post.
Have a great day!:)

On the first weight loss board I found, there appeared to be a board curse :devil: It was said that those who left the board gained their weight back!
:joker: Lurkers and avoiders beware! :joker:

I totally feel ya on this. You hit the nail on the head. I had been avoiding 3fc because I wasn't on track and wasn't working out anymore at all. Thankfully I avoided gaining back any weight (although I don't know how, must be chasing the 3 kids), but I've just been depressed and lazy and unmotivated which reflects in my attitude, how i dress, and how my house looks. I am cleaning today, and get my new shoes on friday so I can work out again and start walking again, and now I'm posting more, LOL. Sad how we even avoid internet interaction when we get off track isn't it?

Wait a minute! How are we supposed to know that you're feeling yuck and need some cuddling and encouragement, if you don't come here and tell us?????

I never completely disappear...even if I'm doing terrible! Like now ;)

Me too ~ like Linda ~ I read on here every day regardless. But I feel like.....I don't even know how to describe it.......I look at my start date, and feel bummed ~ if I had not messed up numerous times, I could have been at goal and maybe posting on the maintainers area ~ but here I am ~ having made some progress but reverted to old behaviors ~ still struggling along ~ needing to do this, but haven't been able to discipline myself yet to do what needs to be done long enough to make any progress. I am reading on someone elses thread (Jen415 I think it was) who is having health problems ~ I am worried that that is how I am going to end up ~ and I feel so stupid ~ because as a health care worker, I know the risks and I shouldn't be playing around with my health like this. What is wrong with me??????

So, I read here, but I don't feel like I should be posting very much, because I am such a mess, how can I encourage someone else?

I'm sorry ~ thank you all for listening.

DITTO, to your entire post Gayle! ;)

I feel EXACTLY the same way. I've done it twice....can't get it right, and it just feels terrible.

I am so glad for this website! I tend to post less when I am not fully on track, but I am so glad I have a computer, internet access, and all that wonderful stuff to come here and post! I am not currently exercising but I think being here helps me to stay on track with my eating, and that is helping tons.

Isn't weight loss like the most common new year's resolution or one of them? I've never thought about it Goddess Jessica, but it'll be interesting to see how many people come on around the New Year.

Yes, come to 3FC... we don't offer milk and cookies but much much better!!

Linda and Gayle... it is difficult, I hear what you're both saying. I hope each experience brings you both closer to where you want to be and makes you stronger, and that one day you will reach your goals. You can definitely do this, don't give up!! ;)

Good thread!

Goddess Jess,
I have conveniently been avoiding the scale. If I deny the results of my actions (or inactions), then I can deny the truth. Right?

Soooo, I have stopped weighing myself first thing in the morning. I did not want to face the truth.

Your post made me realize that avoiding accountability is...well...dumb. Not that you implied "dumb", but that is what I realized about my own actions.

So I weighed myself this am.

Up nine pounds from August.

We cannot address what we refuse to face.

The bull stops here!!!

Amen to that!!! I've been known to pile on a lot of pounds when I'm not looking...;)
