I'm sure many of you do not remember me, as I am under a new screen name. (I think my old user name was karilyn1982). But I joined 3FC back in April of 2003 and participated here until about June of 2003. I had moved up north to Traverse City, Michigan to get away for a while, but over the last month, have moved back home to Ecorse, Michigan.
When I first started my weight loss journey, I was going through the Medical Weight Loss Clinic. I started out weighing 305 lbs. While with them I lost about 30 lbs and then I moved up north, and continued the program by myself. Since then, I have lost a total of 43 lbs, and I am now at 262 lbs. I have been at this weight now for the last month or so, since I have "fallen off" the wagon. I had quit excercising, and started eating bad again.
I do not want to re-gain what I just lost, so I need to take action again. Last week, I joined "Curves for Women" and I LOVE it. I'm still working on the healthy eating though. It's getting better. I just remember this site because of all the helpful people that are here, and all of the encouragement that I received. It really helped A LOT.
So I look forward to getting to know everyone again, and I look forward to getting back on track!

From a column in Dear Abby:
There is an old Japanese proverb: "Fall seven times, get up eight." Who knows? The road to success may be just around the corner. Wouldn't you be dismayed to realize that it was right in front of you, and you had stopped before you reached it?
