Thanks for the warm welcome. I will post in German sometimes :)

Stansangel, I really honestly want this to be the last time I find myself needing to lose weight. I am so unhappy that I gained weight again. I don't even look like myself.

Kim you sound a lot like me. Weight gain on, weight gain off. I hate just hanging in there. Glad to have you on board.

Kim,
I'm one of the German-as-a-second-language people -- Lived in Munich and Zurich -- Dad's family was German -- Don't worry, no one will laugh at your terrible German! The best way to learn is practice practice practice So I hope you jump in!

Herzlich Wilkommen!



...there is a place in you where you have never been wounded, where there's still a sureness in you, where there's a seamlessness in you, and where there is a confidence and tranquility in you. ~John O'Donohue

Kim, das macht nichts.

We have several members whose German is not good because it is not their first language. They sometimes post something short in German and then switch to English. See if you at least understand our postings. We would love to have you.

This has been a long struggle, where I did real well the first couple of years and then slowly ended up gaining most of the weight back.

Hi Kim,
welcome to SP and specifically our group. We meet at the Kaffeekraenzchen daily where we talk about everything that's on our mind.

If you feel more comfortable posting in English, please feel free to do so. Don't be intimidated by us posting in German most of the time.

Feel free to ask us any questions you may have, we are here to help.

Hi, just wanted to say hi. My name is Kim and I live in Germany (near Hamburg). I grew up in New Orleans and also lived in Chicago.

Most of my life I had been quite fit and athletic, however, after the age of 32, I have gained weight (and lost it) a couple of times. Currently I would like to lose 25 pounds and get back into good shape. And this time I want to keep it off.

I look forward to getting to know the community here.
