Welcome back Tara. I agree with the others, don't be so hard on yourself. I am sure most, if not all of us, have had similar experiences with our weight. I know you can do this and we are all here to cheer you on

It's so great to have you back. It's always scary to lose weight and then find you've gained it all back plus some. I've done that several times myself. This time I've had to tell myself I MUST complete the journey, no going back, because if I don't I already know what will happen and I do not want to be even heavier than where I started.

So this is it! Is there something you do besides stress eat? Take a walk? Take a bath?

Honestly, the thing that impresses me the most is that you are here NOW. When I go off plan, I go off for years at least. Coming back so quickly shows that you ARE determined to do this. You just had a little set back.

I used to knit...I don't know why I haven't been. I could get my knitting back out and work on it! Least it would keep my hands busy.

Hi, Tara! Good luck on your journey, & remember (as I am trying to!) eating healthy & exercising makes dealing with all the stress of life a whole lot better than turning to food!

I am SO GLAD to see you back. I'm really sad that the last year has been so incredibly stressful on you but one way you can relieve that stress is by taking charge of YOU. Stay. We'll help you my friend

Welcome back! You have had a tough year. I'm so glad it sounds like things are evening out for you guys.

I've heard a lot of people do that. I used to cross stitch... that was before kids. I used to knit too, but apparently I do it left handed and for whatever reason couldn't figure out how to pearl. Actually, because of the left handedness no one could TEACH me how to pearl. I drove my mom batty trying.

Tara.. let's do this together

I like to knit too, and don't do it nearly enough!! We can do a knit along! Pick something we can make.. a hat, some socks (never did socks, but am intrigued by the two at a time sock books )... it has to be for US, not our kids (who I normally knit for!) Maybe a sweater for goal (because it may take me a long time to knit one.. I never did that either.. but I have done soakers and longies and skirties for the kiddos so I'm sure I can do a sweater) or I saw the most beautiful knitted afghan on lion yarn's site once, it had "family trees" on it.. it was cables and things (again something I've never done.. but am dying to try them).

Let me know!! I would LOVE a buddy, and we are pretty close to the same point in this right now

Welcome back! I have a son with Asperger's Syndrome. He's 8 now. Unfortunately, these kiddos don't usually get diagnosed until they start school because the school setting is a trigger for the behaviors - it's overwhelming. Anytime I get stressed (I stress eat too) I come on here and start typing until the urge to eat passes. I have symptoms of Asperger's and so does my DH, so when DS started having problems at school, I already knew what the problem was. Didn't make the process any easier though.

Tara and Sommer, definitely start knitting again! I learned to knit when I first started my weight loss and it was (and still is) so helpful. It keeps your hands and mind occupied and someone will benefit from what you make.
