Default Can I come back on the wagon???

Well, Hello ladies. It has been months, and I have not been able to face posting because I could not find it in myself to be OP and did not want to face it. What a mountain this weight loss thing is. If I crack this in this lifetime I will truely be a Wise Woman.

So I have gained about 7lbs since I last posted, but that is still a net down of 7 since xmas so not too bad.

And I miss all of you.

So can I return to the fold? We could kill a fatted calf? That would be OP. If we had it with salad.


Here's the new rule. Break the wine glass and fall in to the glass blower's breath.

Awww...Clovey....missed you, gal! I, too, was MIA for a while, and just returned this past week.

Yes, weight loss does seem to be a mountain just too high to climb sometimes, doesn't it?

I find myself wishing there were some sort of "Beach Boot Camp" I could get sent to, and have a drill sergeant harassing me to exercise and the mess hall serving nothing but OP foods! Wouldn't that be grand? At least for a few weeks til we got the hang of this thing and all our bad food cravings had disappeared.

Clovey, we're so glad to have you back. Even if you ARE fatter than when you left. We've missed you, too.

Welcome back, Clovey! What a pleasure it was to log on this morning and see your post, I've missed you! Seems a lot of us have been MIA lately, but we're all back and that's the important thing.

Awww, you girls......

Well, onwards and upwards. Or downwards. I want to shift fifteen pounds before the end of August. That should be doable. So I am back on phase one as well. Plus fibergel.

Here's the new rule. Break the wine glass and fall in to the glass blower's breath.

Hey clovey I too have been MIA but only for a week. I have been totally stressed and totally stress eating. Then my DH said the magic words this afternoon that made me relise that I need to get my @$$ back on track. He said...(these are really fighting words but he did speak the truth) " you look like you have gained 15 pounds in those jeans." Mind you I would not be able to put them on if it was 15 but I have been avoiding those darn scales. So here I am hoping that you will welcome me back with open arms and hug me cause I really need it. Then spin me around and give me a kick in the @$$. Love ya chicks.

Welcome back, Clovey!

Love the crack about the fatted calf! Yup, with a nice salad and SBD dressing and maybe some tomatoes with pesto. Should go very nicely. I joined since you left. Hope you find this site as addicting as I have found it and we see many more posts from you! :

I know what you mean about the weight loss mountain. I wish those who mock us fat chicks would understand that it isn't simply about just "closing our mouths"...the pounds we have are not just born of eating too much. It's eating to stuff our pain, our frustration, our worry, our fear, our stress. Food really is our drug of choice, and we do have an addiction to it...at least I know I do. Oprah had a good point...we are carrying around dozens of pounds of emotional pain.

I recently joined Overeaters Anonymous. I know that I am addicted to food, that I eat and eat without stopping, and that though it seems to be working this time, I have found that willpower is rarely enough! I attended my first meeting last week and really was impressed with the information...it made me think. If you are interested, check out www.oa.org for more info.

Anyways, welcome back, Clovey! Look forward to reading your posts! :
