Default 1,000th Post Love Letter to 3FC

Wow! My 1,000th post!

I can hardly believe that I have been here for 20 months already with you guys!!!

This site has been such a blessing. I sometimes wonder if I would have been able to get down to my current weight without you all. I came to this site already having lost 58lbs, but a lonely 58lbs, without any support. No nutritionist, no formal plan, no personal trainer, no nothing. I have found this site (which is completely comprised of all of you) to be such an excellent resource and a place to go whenever I was faltering or failing and a place to go and shout my victories. I have been able to lose a further 75lbs with all my friends here, and I find it happily interesting that this post is coming at a point where I am nearly at the high end of my ultimate goal weight. I truly don't think I would have been able to do so well without everyone on here inspiring me, encouraging me, advising me, commiserating with me, and celebrating with me.

So, this is a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone here for truly helping me be a happier, healthier me than I would otherwise be.

Default Great post!

Hi Charlotte!

That was so sweet of you to send that out to all of us! I know what you mean about going it alone and then going it with THOUSANDS of friends here who not only know what you are going through but also never tire of talking about food and weight loss and problems WITH food and weight loss and... There's only so much a husband or boyfriend or family member can stand when it comes to talking about weight loss -particularly if you live in a family of skinny minnies! (OK...some of you HERE are skinny minnies now, too, but I KNOW you know what I mean!!!!)

Congrats on all your progress, and thanks for taking the time to share your gratitude for the site. I LOVE this place! SOOOO glad that I found it, too!

Cheryl
