I joined this site almost 2 years ago and a few weeks in, I quit. And not because it was hard or inconvenient or unhelpful. I quit because I didn't want to continue to be made aware of or be held accountable by this (wonderful!) community for my food and exercise choices.

However, in the last few months I have dealt with some very difficult life events that are really putting my life into focus and that are helping me to realize that I need a complete reboot.

I'm ashamed to say that I am much heavier (30+ lbs if we're counting) than when I initially joined because I lost sight of my goals and my motivation. It's time to get refocused and to work towards happiness. But I know that I can't do it alone! I need the knowledge, encouragement, and support that I know this community is capable of providing.

I'm ready.

    Welcome back! I was on here a few years ago, too. I stopped at he end of my pregnancy. I enjoyed the site, just got lazy, I think. But what I had learned then, stuck with me. All the information was and is great. I just didn't listen to my conscience. So I gained back what I had lost in weight.
    But, we are back, and that is what matters. You can reach your goals and so can I. You are right. This community is very motivating. Get inspired!
