Time for some new goals

I've updated my goals in the sidebar.

I thought, after being up and down and then bingeing for two weeks and finally restarting, I'd change my start date and stats too.

Old start date and weight was January 14th 09, at 201.4lbs

New start date and weight are April 27th 09 at 198lbs.

I didn't think it was really fair to track from the old date when for a good month I went between plateauing and bingeing and getting back down to 188 and then plateauing and bingeing and getting back down... It was just a big period of crapness.

So I'm starting fresh as from this week. And I need to say, it's amazing to have this outlet again. I don't know why I stopped blogging and reading blogs, but coming back to this feels like coming home. I'm a lot happier since I've been here, and I love having an avenue to vent all of my feelings and frustrations that I just can't say or talk about anywhere else.

And I know that you girls will accept me for what I am, not just what I wish I was or what I will be one day. With my goals and my days of amazing will power and even my faults and weaknesses.

I love you guys. I know I say it a lot, but that doesn't make it any less true.

So here's to starting new and reaching our goals. So far (today not included) this has been a great first week for me and I'm happy to be back here. And I wish you all the best in reaching the goals you've set for yourself. We can do it. We WILL be tiny and beautiful and perfect.

ps: as you can tell, I needed a little positive affirmation after the last post =/

I totally understand your feelings about "staring fresh" and what it means to get support from people here. I still haven't started my blog out of apprehension but I think I am going to break down and get started tonight. Reading the blogs has helped me SO MUCH. It is amazing to find people (finally!) who think like me and have habits like mine.

You are not alone and I know you can do it! Hang in there sweetie...and stay hungry. :)

Africana: Thanks hun. I was a bit like that at first. And I'm still (probably unnecessarily) paranoid that a friend will find this blog and put the pieces together. But it's been so helpful and like, therapeutic for me to be able to have this outlet. Writing in a personal diary just isn't the same as being able to reach out to other people in the same boat. When/if you do start your blog, I'll be the first to follow it. I promise you won't regret it, blogging about the things I can't talk about openly has been a huge help! Let me know if you ever need someone to talk/rant to =] xx

Stina: Thanks doll =] It's great to BE back xxx
