I'm back!

Sunday, November 27, 2011

Hello everyone,
First of all, I wanted to apologize to you all for being gone for these last few months. I'm sorry I haven't been there to cheer you on and give you my support :( I feel awful for that. I have been dealing with some issues that became too much for me and I kind of shut down from everyone and everything. The good news is that I have pulled myself together and I am ready to start again and get control of my life. Thank you to all of you who stuck with me during this difficult time. You don't know how much that helped me! I probably wouldn't be back if it wasn't for you and your support!

So, now I have to get my act together and get back to losing this weight. Unfortunately, the last few months really took a toll on me and I have gained back about half of the weight I had lost :( I definitely have my work cut out for me. But, I did it once and I can do it again. My question for you I reset my weight tracker to what I weigh now or do I just leave it where it is and just work towards getting back there? I really hate to see it go up but I know that I need to be honest with myself too. Any suggestions?

Again, thanks to all of you. I promise I will be here for you from now on and I will try to get caught up with how you all are doing!

    Girlfriend! No worries! We weren't going to give up on you! So happy you are back! It was so awesome being able to IM you through FB the other night! You are such a good friend! I too, have gained a bit of weight back! I am going to reset mine, because I want it to be accurate, but like the others said, if it helps you to see it at the number you were, then leave it. No sense in depressing yourself seeing the higher number!

    You CAN do this! WE CAN do this! Hang in there, lady! You are GOING to get back down (and then some) to where you were! Glad you are racing back to the starting line, again!

    Hugs and keep me posted as to how you are doing! Have a SUPER Monday!!!!

    I also feel you should do whatever you feel with your weight tracker that will help you. I am so sorry you are having other issues going that are causing you stress because that sure never helps anything.
    Take care of yourself, my sweet friend!

    That has to be your choice. I know every anniversary I change mine to that weight that I am on that date. It helps me to get a little more motivated.

    Good luck and welcome back. I will be praying for you on your journey.

    I'm glad you're back! I've missed you. I hope the issues that overwhelmed you have backed off a little. :)

    Re: weight tracker - I suppose it depends on what motivates you and what pressures you. If seeing the low number as a goal helps, then keep it where it is. If it pressures you and causes you anxiety, put it to where you are now. Also remember that if you put it up to your current weight, you'll be able to celebrate every pound you lose when you are working back down to that level. That also might be a motivation. Just do things the way they work best for you. :)
