Been a long time since I was on last. According to my page it's been over a year. Sounds about tight. So today I am starting again and I will continue to start again until I get it right. Lots of things have brought me to this point. I got hurt about This time last year at work and have not been back since. I will never work as a Boilermaker again. But I am lucky to still have the use of my right arm. I have been doing rehab on my right arm now I need rehab on my hole body as it were. So this is me back to the beginning and praying I will be motivated enuff this time to see it through to the end. Good luck to me!

    My poor, poor Tuggman. I know exactly how you feel about falling off. I absolutely ruined everything I worked for. I think the only reason I'm back is because of the Biggest Loser challenge we just started at work. Let's make a pact to shoot each other a pick me up note once a week.

    I'm so glad to see you back and ready to fight. emoticon emoticon

    Tugger I too fell off the sparkwagon for three months. The day after Christmas I got on the scale...reset my weights on sparkpeople and made another commitment to get going again. I made a small goal of 30 pounds by the end of the May....so far I am sticking to it and doing well. I actually made it to the Y 3 times last week....that was more than I had been in 3 months. You can do this! We all lose sight sometimes and get into the why me? why can't I be thin already? Why do I have to fight for this? I have no answers for those questions but I do know we aren't alone....there is a website full of people fighting the same fight....welcome back friend ::hugs:: Barb

I know all of you will be there to help and I will be heir to help also. All my gratitude and love - Richard /AKA tuggman emoticon
