Thanks Julie. I don't know if I can attribute my attitude to a change
in the air, or if I'm just now getting over my post-Christmas blahs.
The switch isn't fully on yet--I ate a no-no lunch today--so I've
still got some work to do to transform the positive frame of mind into
positive action.

Oh, you and Ray on the same morning! Is there something in the air up
there? It's great to see you back in such a positive frame of mind Linda.
It takes some time to get used to the size that you really are, but you
*will* get there in the end.

It's good to be back. Reading and posting, even if I'm not fully back
in the game eating-wise, makes me feel OP.

I hate to think I could be the inspiration for anyone. Yet I know how
that works. People who succeed the 1st and only time seem so unreal.
Those of us who take giant steps back and baby steps forward need each
other to keep from thinking the whole thing is hopeless.

I think it was early December when I last posted. Even then I was
struggling to maintain my focus and concentration on this WOE/WOL.
Body image was a real problem. My head refused to accept the fact that
the Small and Medium size clothes in my closet were actually mine and
fit, some even loosely. Then the holidays hit and when that voice in
my head telling me I was fat saw all the goodies on platters
throughout the office, all remaining resistance melted. I've been on a
feeding frenzy since.

Work has become all-consuming, and as a result, I've become
all-consuming as well. While my work life couldn't be any more
exciting and fun, the career stakes have never been higher, and thus,
I've fallen back on old coping (food) habits. Somehow I've got to find
some other way than eating to quell my nervous energies. I'm
embarrassed to say how much weight I've regained.

Now the clothes that I imagined were too small a couple of months ago
are, in fact, too small now. And this week, I noticed in the mirror
that my neck is starting to fill in, one of the first places fat
deposits itself in my body, after my abdomen. When I saw that, the
fat-fighting spirit that helped me the last time finally kicked in and
here I am. I rejoined the Y and have plans to go later today for my
first workout. I rejoined WW online this morning, and see, I'm back to
participating in the newsgroup.

The sun is shining, daylight is longer, and only 2 days remaining of
February. My biking club is gearing up for spring and summer riding,
and dangit! I'm gonna be ready!

Thanks Kate. I'm on and off the NG today between errands and such.
Getting back into the groove of reading and posting is definitely good
for my mental health even if my food choices haven't been perfectly
perfect. One baby step at a time.

recently too.

I congratulate you, Linda, for making a connection between your weight and
the stress in your life and STILL having enough strength to do something to
fix it. Sometimes it's hard to still find the fight and not give up. You
haven't, and that's wonderful. Thanks for inspiring me today.

tell you where the others are. I can tell you that we weren't hanging
out together!

Thank You! I won't pretend that I made a sudden decision to return and
now everything's coming up roses. I've still a long ways to go before
my head and my heart are completely back in the groove. But I remember
writing to people who were discouraged that the only way to fail is to
quit. I'm trying to pay attention to my own advice and for today, be
satisfied that I've take the steps to get myself back here. Tomorrow's
another day.

Hi Linda, how nice to see you back. There were many concerned
people here on the ng. I'm glad you made the decision to get back
OP and get rid of those pesky pounds.

Dealing with the body image thing may be difficult, but you can do
it! Good luck getting back to where you were in December.

Again, it's nice to *see* you back here!
