Default Well hello, old friends!

I can't even remember the last time I was here, but it has been a long time! I find myself nearly at the 2 year mark since I began losing, and over a year now since I've been around the same weight. I won't say "maintaining" because in all honesty it has been more like: wanting to lose more, getting bored, gaining a few, losing that few, repeat. It's pretty annoying actually. I've seen a low of 133 and a high of 150, today 139, a goal of a range of 125-130.

All that being said I guess I really just came by to say hello. That and I've always been most successful when hanging out here. We are moving from Az to Co in about a month and the stress of the move is difficult even though I'm very excited. I need support in order to not eat my stress away and gain a million pounds. So I'm back.

omg!!! hi!!!! *waves like crazy!!*

You are one of the first people I "met" here way back when and you inspired me to stay on plan and get my butt moving so I could get these pounds off!! Your advice and gorgeous pictures were priceless, how can I thank you enough for that?!!?

So happy to hear you are doing well maintaining and keeping your head in the game, it's so important for all of us to do that. I have a feeling we will always be on the up/down cycle but as long as we do it closer to goal, we will always win the battle.

I'm so happy to see your post. Welcome back, girlfriend!

ELVIS!!! Look at how great you're doing OMG! Now you gotta help me get MY butt moving!

Amandie, of course I remember you!!! And thank you!

I think of 3FC often and wonder how everyone is doing. I think this is the first time I've come back without having gained all that I've lost back. I think the biggest difference this go 'round has been that I've not ever thought I finally have it figured out. I don't, and may never, but there are worse battles to fight, so I'm ok with it.

Amandie is one of my BFFs here too!!! **waves to Amandie!!**

Seriously, I think 3FC has changed my life. This is the first time in my life that I get my butt back in the game (literally LOL) before getting out of control. I never ever want to go back to my old big life again and I refuse to let it happen. Plus, I already gave all my big clothes away so I can't.

I don't post too often anymore (too much *bleeping* drama in this place) but I do pick and choose threads and people carefully so I was SO happy to see your post!!

We will be here for you just like you were here for us when we needed help and motivation!

Welcome back. Why CO? As I recall your husband is a trainer? Is there now a bigger need for trainers in CO with everyone having the munchies?

Stephanie!!! You've been such an inspiration and I'd been wondering about you! I don't think I'd seen you posting since around the time I found out I was pregnant! I'm not posting as much these days myself but I've got a healthy little 10-week-old boy keeping me busy. I managed a healthy gain throughout the pregnancy and have lost all the baby weight, leaving me ready to pick up where I left off: uncharted territory!

Wonderful to know you've stayed in a healthy range; too many members find themselves coming back to restart from a significant gain (I did that myself back in 2012). Oh, and I love the darker hair in your avatar! Try not to stress about the move too much (easier said than done, I know), and be sure to enjoy the beautiful scenery you're about to experience.

OMG I cannot believe the baby you literallly just announced you were pregnant with is 10 weeks old! I guess I haven't been around longer than I thought! Congratulations!!!

Hooray!!!!! Seeing your name put a big smile on my face -- I've wondered a few times how you were doing. I'm not sure you realize how inspiring it was to have you around before -- not only because you accomplished so much, but because you were so open about the non-scale issues that inevitably crop up.

So glad you posted -- good luck with the impending move!
