I just wanted to say thanks for all the well wishes! I just think it's great to have people to reach out to. About 10 years ago, I joined weight watchers. I went from 255 to 179. One of the things I liked about that program was the support from other members. Unfortunately, when I stopped going to the meetings, 60 lbs. came back to haunt me. I have since gone back to weight watchers about 5 times, but I guess the first time is always the easiest. When I found SparkPeople, I found that I can do this, and that I am not doing it alone. The weekly meetings were great, but here I can find daily support, at the click of my mouse. I did not spend much time the last time I was here on SparkPeople posting on the message boards. I think now that was a mistake, and I will be sure to post on a regular basis, because I am finding that there are so many amazing people out there who are just like me, and I am grateful for all your support! P.S. I just fixed my bicycle this morning, so I'll be getting out there! 1909 days ago
