Hello old friends, and hopefully new ones.......more
I used to post on this board about a year ago. Back then, I was all fired up about losing weight and beginning a new healthy lifestyle. I had lost thirty pounds and was feeling great about myself.....gung ho and nothing could stop me.
Well, I found out that something could and did stop me. I've lived through a year of incredible personal stress and unhappiness. The best part of it is, it's over now and I am on the other side of it. I gained back almost all of the weight I lost, but now I think I have finally come to a place in my life where I am ready to meet it head-on again.
A year ago, I got so hooked on this board I was spending whole days here. It was an obsession. Lots of days I really didn't get anything else done at all. I must have connected sixty times a day to check the board. I want to come here for support again, and I want to give support to the rest of you as well, but this time I have to watch myself carefully to make sure I don't let this Internet thing get out of control.
I'm starting a new lifestyle today. I promise to drink more water. I promise to get more excercise. I promise to make healthier choices for my body. I promise to be here for all of you, to cheer you on. And I promise not to let this board become a problem in my life to the point where I have to give it up again like I had to last time. Today, I am telling myself that I really can "have it all", as long as I do it smart.
So good morning, ladies! Here's to a great day!
