I know what you mean - I've been a member for quite a while now and it's kind of like my secret sorority. So many people on here have been "friends" for years. My weight has been all over the place - I've been successful, not successful, just chatting or actively losing and then even maintaining for awhile. Whatever it is, this has been a great forum for all of it.
HW: 225, lost 75lbs in 2011 LW: 150
Losing again starting from 190lbs - 10/16/2015
Small changes add up. Striving to better than yesterday.
