I've been a member here since 2007. That's 10 years now. What have I learned? Losing weight is hard, but doable. All you people out there thinking there's no way that you're going to lose that weight? stick around. It's amazing what a little willpower and motivation from SP friends will do.

I've been back and forth on the scale. In 2007 I lost 20ish pounds here before getting pregnant with my second child, over the years I left and came back several times not having any real sucess.. 5lbs here or there before loosing the willpower to continue and dropping off the planet.. at the very end of 2013 I came back after getting on the scale that read 243.

in 2014 I lost just about 60lbs over the course of the year before falling off the rails.. I got down to the late 180s I believe.. I'd have to look though my blogs to be able to remember exactly, it was 3 years ago now. last year, I lost around 15lbs, but this last year I've gained it back.. 2017 will be my year for a comeback, and I mean a REAL comeback. I will find my goal this year and I'll keep it off.

I'm 35. I'm due. I'm starting all fresh goals and everything.

    Definitely your last guess. He's all talk and no action, that was 8 years ago. Also Not worried about my safety since I got a smartwatch. I can call 911 with 4 words.

    Yes. I was lucky enough when I came back here this spring that other members took the time to drill the facts into me. I'd been busting tail at the gym and still gaining and felt so gypped. BUT, yeah, once I started cooking all my own meals and ensuring I measured accurately, the weight started falling off at a decent clip.
    I think the diet & exercise industry has a lot to answer for with the way this whole process is viewed, though. lol.
