"... a Grumpy Holiday."

Hello!

I've had a somewhat tumultuous, on-again-off-again relationship with No-S, Shovelglove, and Rangering over the past several years. During the "on again" phases, good results have been consistent and reliable. However, derailments resulting from impatience, a lack of self-discipline, training and non-training related injuries, and a lifelong proclivity for self-sabotage when success is almost achieved have prevented me from establishing any of these as true habits. During these "off again" phases, I have experimented with a multitude of other diet and exercise modalities, and have achieved good-if-short-lived success with many of them, only to find myself, ultimately, back where I started (with interest).

So. Here I am. There and back again, and determined to establish these healthy, simple habits, once and for all.

Here to hoping your somewhat tumultuous relationship with No-s turns into smooth running, long term relationship.

Welcome and good luck.

I have similar issues Smile. Welcome back , best wishes!

I see my daughter going down a similar path I have, and so I hope just by seeing her every day, it keeps me on course, because she copies me.

I think most of us have been there! I finally came to the point where I realized that yo-yo dieting wasn't working, and only sustainable, changed habits would really "work." Losing alone isn't enough--it has to be maintainable, or like you said, you just end up back where you started. Wishing you the best as you set out to create healthy habits!

I'm taking the liberty of adding this to the thread "Why did you leave? Why are you back?

And welcome home.
