I'm back...and losing again
« on: October 12, 2012, 10:08:02 AM »
Hi All!

Somehow over the last year I have managed to gain twenty pounds! As a lot of you know I HATE the scale and stay away from it as much as I can. Since February I have started a new job and then when my sister got gravely ill it just did me in. I didn't put on a lot at once, a few pounds here or there. So this morning I decided to give in and step on the scale. OH MY GOSH I gained TWENTY pounds. I am so upset at myself for letting that happen but I also no how to get rid of it. So I'm back to the forums I love and the people that always encourage me to do better. I have decided to go for 35 five pounds and see if I can do it by Christmas. We shall see but I am glad to be back, wish it wasn't because I'm up 20 pounds though. :(

Good to see you Sherri...sorry for the reason girl.  Life has a way of getting in the way sometimes (don't be so hard on yourself) the great thing is you have the skills to get it back off.   ;)

Thanks! I agree, it's so nice to know just what to do to get rid of it. I wish I would have stepped on the scale sooner. I hate scales! LOL

Welcome back Sherri. I really hope you lose the 35 pounds. I know how you feel. I've been going through some personal issues also and I've been stagnant or even gain weight. I still look to you as motivation cause you loss all that weight and look amazing. Good luck sweetie!  :)

Hi, and welcome home Sherri and Michelle! :) :) :) :) :)

Life has a way of happening no matter what we do.
How we handle life's "curve balls" dictates what happens to us.

As discussed in other posts, when we go back to our "old ways", we're rewarded with our "old bodies".
Fortunately, you both caught this before it became a longer road than necessary.

You both have the knowledge that will get your weight down where you want it.
It's simply a matter of faithfully following the FTS rules. 8)

I know you guys can do it!!! :) :) :)
We're right here with you all the way!

Tony
What you do today is what matters!

I'm glad to be back and have learned my lesson. Next time I'll weigh in atleast monthly just to keep on top of it. I have taken all my yummy SF candies out of my diet and am doing better. I feel better already, so that's a good step. It thrills me knowing that I can lose the little I've gained, having the knowledge I've learned from FTS. I just have to do it and stay on track. :)

Hey Sherri, I know exactly what you're talking about!

It's easier this time because we already know what to do.  We'll be looking for your new success stories!

Welcome back, SherriPie  :)

I'm new in these parts, but familiar with life's hard stuff driving me off the carb cliff.
 
You've done this before, you'll do it again!  ;D

Hey Sherri!  I have just been maintaining all Summer, so I am ready to get back to business too!  Now I would LOVE to lose 35 by Christmas, but I know I am just not wired to lose fast like that.  Anyway...I am already counting the weeks until I turn 50 in April.  The more I can lose by then, the easier it will be to accept the big 5-0.  ha ha    :D

I just got my copy of the new updated book and saw the personal stories in the front.  As I read your individual stories, I said to myself "I have spoken with him" or "I have spoken with her" on the forum.  How cool.  I have been on this forum for a little less than a month now, but feel at home.  So welcome to all those who just recently started, and welcome back to those of you who are regulars but have taken some time away from the forum. :o

Oh Thank Goodness! I feel so much better now. (sorry Sherri  :) ) It's so good to know I am not alone with letting "the creep" happen. I am up five pounds. I maintained my Spring loss all Summer. After my Aunt died in September, followed by my Uncle, then my Cousin... within a 10 day period...  I just started getting REALLY lax.

I feel you all are like AA for carboholics. I really think I need a sponsor... because if I'm not here every day or so... I am noshing somewhere. :o  If I disappear, please look for me and reel me in! :)

Sherri I am so glad you are back on the wagon! You continue to amaze me. I would love to be 35 down by Christmas too! GREAT goal!

Love you guys!! *grouphug*
