Hi Eleanor! Welcome back to the rest of your life! I know how you feel -- I'm just starting to get hold of my weight myself, and without coming here to post updates, I'd probably start slipping away, too. I really enjoy the support of people who read each others' posts, and in checking out the success stories.
Every pound or inch lost is a success story, and I'm thrilled to be making slowwww progress, but progress nonetheless! I hope you find every day to be successful in some way - whether it's in your eating habits, exercising, work or social life, home life, whatever - something good will come of every day!
Good luck - I"m with ya!
