Hi, and Welcome!
You're not alone in being a 'returning' poster... there are a lot of you here.
Welcome back! And good for you for coming back to the boards. It means you have the desire to better your health. I've been up and down the scales MANY times, but this time is the time I've changed my life habits and have had success. Yeah, I've had times where I've gained a few pounds, but I didn't let it stop me from continuing my life journey.
I hope the tumultuous period in your life is behind you for now and you can concentrate on you!
