Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday,


Well I do not no if any one remembers me at all. I ws here before and lost over 8 pounds. I came to this sight every day with out fail. I wrote to others who were starting and wanted help and advice. I FELT great.

Well for some reason who knows why I stopped went off the diet nad well like many others I have gained some back,.NOT all of it for sure like 10 or 15 pounds. I am afraid to get back on the scale and be depressed. So today I started back on this. I will come here faithfully and get support.

I NEED help
I NEED support
I no i can do it and i felt so good before. I even told myself before i do not want to be one of the people who lose it and gain it back.
What a waste of time and effort.
But well here i am..

So any way if any one can write me support me encourage me..

The sad thing was i was only about 20 pounds from my goal before...
Sad sad sad...

Well I had to post, vent and beg for help maybe........

Thank you all for reading..

Have a great day

Welcome back Panda!!

Ok, so you fell off the wagon for a few months.... brush yourself off. But think about this. You recognized what was happening before you gained it all back. Think of it as a reality check. It's amazing how our bad habit creep back into our lives and gain control. But you are doing it!! You are take the control back AND you know how to get the excess weight off.

I'm going to be perfect honest here, so listen up. Restarting the program is harder than starting it the first time around. I have no idea why that is, but it is. Hang in there, take it one meal at a time, be compliant, stay busy and don't cheat!!! We don't want you to go back to where you were.

Keep reading and posting to the boards....... your MF family is always here :)


Restarted 9/29/08
1st month = 16.7 lbs
2nd month = 9.5 lbs
3rd month = 10.8 lbs
4th month = .4 lb /

Hey, Panda, welcome back!

I don't remember you but I can tell you that I am a re-restarter, too and nobody said a thing to me when I returned except for supportive, encouraging words!

You can do it!
