Take heart! Welcome here and know that you will find the support that you need. If there is anything that I can share let me know. (I am still learning too as I did not have the time to do things "right" before I retired. Now that I have retired, I have time to see what I have missed and the support that is really here!)
Don't get discouraged...there is an old wives tale that says we profit from mistakes as mistakes help form your core being. When you have a bad experience with either someone or something tell yourself that you have something to give and maybe even change the situation or at a minimum make someone smile. You did that for me this morning! When I read your message this AM, I had to smile because you instilled in me the fact that I might be needed for encouragement as since I have retired I am fighting to find a purpose. So keep on with a positive attitude. It will probably work out that you don't even ever know what you do for someone here but believe and know that you do!

If you think you are beaten, you are. If you think you dare not, you don't. If you'd like to win but think you can't, It's almost certain you won't. Life's battles don't always go To the stronger or faster man, But sooner or later, the man who wins Is the man who thinks he can. (Walter D. Wintle)

Hi my name is Angie this isnt my first time or even my second time here but this will be the final time because I have decided to learn all I can so I can not only shed the weight but also maintain the loss. I have never learned how to maintain so this time around Im using all the tools avaible here to make this a success. Im still new at posting and using challenges because all I ever used was the trackers in the past so Im learning as I go. I made a post in the past and didnt realize I had posted it twice and someone made a very nasty comment telling me to learn the posting rules and use them well I never did that again. So if I make a mistake this time around please forgive me and give me tips but please do so nicely . Cant wait to get to know folks here and make a few freinds along the way.
