  1. Thank you for all of the thoughtful responses! I am new, curious, nervous and I want to succeed. I can see the need to have support and I am not comfortable ( yet) going to a group setting, I know I would feel self conscious even though the room was full of peers. It is hard for me to admit that! I will continue to monitor and ask questions when I have some. Thanks again.
  2. Great topic and lesson, things are still "easy" for me, the weight is falling off and I am not craving anything............Yet. I need to prepare. I had not thought of the triggers. Listen to me almost 3 months in and I think I have this.
  3. I am glad to see you have been here for 2 1/2 years and are doing great. I get your point about people who have never been obese not understanding, it is just very noticeable when you look around the Forum that many long term people have left. That could also be due to the longevity of this board. I hope I did not come across as judging the validity of the board, my initial thought was more of concern that people were moving away from the Forum too early and wondering if they remained successfull. I guess we will never know if someone walks away.
  4. Cinwa - Thanks, I had a feeling that was the case. Would be interesting to know how many remained successful!
  5. I have been looking around this site at topics through the years and have noticed that many members are only here for a year or two and then poof, they are gone. I am new , so am not getting much from a Forum setting/networking. I realize that I am in the "easy" portion or honeymoon period and that the process is working and I am not having difficulty as I am so "new". My question, do most folks realize success after a year or two and no longer need the Forum?
  6. My first reaction when I saw this topic was to think back to the 90's, Jimmy Kimmel had a foolish show and had girls on trampolines.....LOL Trampoline must be an amazing workout.
  7. I want to hear some - All the single ladies - Beyonce' - wait a minute- I want to Hear all the ladies!
  8. I wanna go Back - Eddie Money
  9. I am sorry as I like to joke , perhaps too much. My first thought when I saw this thread " Popcorn is my problem", I thought geez, Popcorn is not the issue with me, it is the amount of extra butter that I lather on and the huge portion I eat, I am sorry if some take offense to that, but was my initial thought.
  10. I am going to use this strategy as well. I know that I am not and will not ever be perfect. I hope to change my lifestyle and make better choices, I am so new that I realize I will have bumps in the road, how I handle those peaks and valleys will determine success.
  11. I should have added I weigh naked as well, didn't want to upset any tummies with that visual!
  12. @robin0418, I am glad I can help. You are going to think of your TT friend Cliff when that scale reads wonders tomorrow!
  13. This might be TMI for some, I weigh in the morning right after a BM. I am a GUY so those BM's seem to be a natural , consistent thing for us.
  14. Reminds me of that old Country song by Alabama - " Ya see that Mountain over there, one of these days I'm gonna climb that Mountain"
  15. That is a job well done tmcgee!
