100 lb. Club - It's been sooo long

View Full Version : It's been sooo long

Hi everyone :wave: wow, it's been SO long since I've been here, I've been completely offline for a long time... well, what can I say, I'm at it again... giving it another go. I see a few names that look familiar anyway, so for those of you who know me, a little update, I guess... about 2 years ago now, I guess, I started losing weight...rapidly, effortlessly, lost over 100 pounds... no reason, no illness, while hanging on to some of the worst habits ever... odd no? Well, it came back to bite me, and I've been putting weight on twice as fast as I lost it... about 75 pounds of it, right back on me... not that I've been innocent here, no... I quit smoking again... man, that about did me in LOL, and picked up some bad snacking (binging) habits again... and I just can't seem to kick them :(

So tonight, rebuilding bookmarks, I came in for a peek... and started reading... and decided to try my old login... whaddayaknow? It still works... a sign? Maybe, but I'll take it :D

Anyhow, it's way late... or way early, depending on how you look at it, so... if this makes no sense at all, I apologize lol

Well I'm glad you're here and welcome back. This is a great first step for you cause as you know 3FC is a great place full of advice, encouragement, support and really knowledgable people. Good for you for getting rid of those horrible cigarettes. That must have been very difficult. Wishing you lots and lots of luck on your weightloss journey, hoping to see you around.

Welcome Back!!
I'm a newbie, but have found such great support on this board.... and I think it's safe to say that we've all been where you are right now. Who hasn't lost weight and then gained it back?!? But you're back now, and can get back on track :carrot:
