Over the years, I have tried over and over. Lasting a much as a few days to a couple of weeks. Only to fall back off the train and get left.
Well, this is it. I have made the commitment once again and this will be my last fat summer! I can no longer use "having a baby" as my excuse for being overweight and out of shape (baby is soon to be 5 yrs old!!)
So looking forward to this journey. Wishing us all much luck and success. WE CAN DO THIS!
Welcome back--there seems to be a number of us FitDay veterans coming back to the fold. I was originally here about the same time as you and lost a couple hundred pounds.
Gained a lot back, and came back to FitDay around '06 and lost 70 or so. Since then, they've ALL come back and brought friends.
Having come to the realization that I can't be trusted to eat "normally" I'm here to stay.
It sounds like you're determined to make this the last time as well--good for you!
