Hello - new (kinda) to the site

Postby Nylandia » December 27th, 2006, 5:12 pm

Hello everyone,
I've been reading and following this website for some time now, and finding great support, encouragement, and ideas. I started MF in June of 06, and knew almost immediately that it was the right plan for me. I'm a lifetime dieter, and have tried pretty much everything. This is the one plan that has truly worked for me.

I've lost 40 lbs so far. I was doing great on my own for a while (while reading these forums to glean knowledge and enthusiasm). Then around November I started the slow decline...first a bite or two here and there. Then a meal or two I shouldn't have. Then shakes in the morning, food at night, then a whole day off. Then the Holidays did me in, and the last 1-2 weeks were completely off plan. Know what? I felt horrible...gross, bloated, yucky.

That's when I knew I had to come back to the program, all the way. It is the right plan for me, its easy, it works, it fits so well into my lifestyle. Yesterday was my Day 1, and was great! Feel a little ucky today, but its cool to know that by the end of the week I will feel fantastic, full of energy and willpower. I've also decided to use the Journal forum here on the site, as I need more accountability to myself.

There are so many amazing people on this forum...in the past months I've been very touched by the support, the caring, and the insight from all of you. Oh, and tremendously inspired by the success stories! I look forward to continuing this journey with you all.

Welcome back. Oh yes I know only too well how those little tastes can lead to a "hiatus" from M/F. I am sooooo glad to be back here too.

Hi Nylandia,

I know what you mean, there are several of us re-starters here...the great thing about MF is that it's here when we're ready. So glad you're back on!

I also do so much better when I'm posting and reading on the fourm every day. Accountability, friends commiserating and inspiring me is what really helps!

Glad you're shakin' with us!

I'm a re-starter as well and wanted to say hello! Like DeDe, I am much better if I'm here reading and responding daily! Other people's success - and stumbles - really help me with my weight loss journey. We're all in this together...and I wish you great success! :mrgreen:
