Red face It's time!

Hey y'all!

It's time. Time for me to swallow my pride.

(kinda)

I've been thinking for several weeks that I needed to post this in my blog (offsite), but haven't done so yet because I'm not ready to be "that" transparent.

So, I remembered this site from a friend's recommendation a few years ago and decided to come here and register. For now, I'll hide behind my anonymity.

I am currently 89 pounds lighter than my heaviest weight. That's the good news. The other news is that at the beginning of this year, I was 120 pounds lighter than my heaviest weight (I've gained 31 pounds this year; most of that pretty recently).

A large part of the weight gain was due to a combination of an illness that kept me housebound for about 5 months, and a depression that appeared as a side effect of being housebound.

The illness and the depression is over, and I'm still having trouble "getting a handle" on things.

I know what to do and what works for me.
I just need to do it.

And, for whatever reason, that is proving to be more difficult than ever before.

I need some accountability, and I thought I would come here. I actually know at least one person who comes here and have heard very good things about this site.

Thanks so much for reading!

Welcome to 3FC!

A lot of us have been where you are, having regained weight and needing to go through it all again. It's hard knowing the pounds we're losing then could have been new pounds if we hadn't slipped up. But the important thing is you're back at it and doing what you need to do, you'll be making new progress before you know it!

Hi there,
I'm new to 3chicks but read your post and could feel your pain. It can get so frustrating to start again, and again, and again but the point is TOO TRY AGAIN. I read this quote somewhere: You try, You fail, You try, You fail. But the only True Failure is when you stop trying! I'm not saying this situation doesn't suck but at least you're reaching out and 3chicks is a great site. Good luck and hope to see ya hear again soon. Nana
