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 205lbs - 7/31/2016
No words of widsom. After a lifetime of reflection and dieting, I still don't have this thing figured out. I have decided, though, that sugar is the devil and I'm cutting it out as much as I can.
