I have only been LCing for 6 weeks but I can see no other way of eating for me. After this short time I am still ready to make a positive commitment. I want to see my kids grow up, get married and have kids of their own, but most of all I am doing this for me. I know I will win

I Kenny, always known as kenny, promise to stay on the forum for one full year in good times and bad. I promise to keep working the low carb lifestyle, even though I may run into a rough patch here and there. Should something happen in my life and I change my mind about all of this- I promise to come to the TDC and say goodbye (death precluding this) so the many people that have supported me know what became of me. Most of all, I promise to be genuine with myself and others, at all times.

I'm hesitant to make this commitment for two reasons. First I'm a busy mom of 1 year old and a 4 year old as well as a wife of a husband who has had health problems lately. Life tends to shake me up when I'm not looking and I have to stop the computer for awhile. I need all the support here so I hope to stay here permanently. My second reason is that In the past I have failed by looking to far forward into the future. Right now I'm trying to put blinders on and concentrate a couple of weeks at a time. I'm sure all of you can relate to having a lot of weight to lose and facing a long journey in front of you. It tends to overwhelm me when I look at the entire monumental task that lays before me. So I've specifically made it a point to not plan. (I'm a born planner...love to plan things...doing them is another story) So hopefully you won't mind that I modified it slightly so that I could join you in your pledge.

I Julie promise to stay on the forum every day in good times and bad. I promise to keep working the low carb lifestyle, even though I may run into a rough patch here and there.

I hope this counts me in

I just wanted to say how inspired I was by each and every post here. A year is a heck of a long time. So much can change in our lives over a year. I know that for myself, I have a long ugly history of being in every weight loss program known to humankind. And I have failed at every one for the same reason.

I screw it up or get bored or quit losing or whatever. Then I quit going to the meeting, doctor, clinic, or whatever it was. I know for myself, that getting out of touch is a big red flag !!!!! I want to change that. I want to be here and post no matter how good or how poorly I am doing. Because that is the only way I will ever make it to my goal weight.

Even now, I find myself not wanting to post when I have had a rough time or done less than perfectly. Everytime I post and go around and visit my friend's journals, when I have messed up or am feeling blah about this, makes me stronger and keeps me going.

Without this forum, I don't think I would have made it this far. And I know that I won't make it another whole year without it. It keeps me honest, and provides me with support, encouragement and a good kick in the ass when I need it! Thank you all for being here. When I can eek out the time I am going to send each person who made the commitment a list of the others who did so we can keep track of each other this next year.

February 7th, 2004 is closer than we think! Cindi

Lightbulb Exploring and found the spot . . .

After the feelings of abandonment this past week, I'm anxious to join this group! Lesson learned though. It caused me to explore further all of the wonderful tools we have here to help us succeed.

I'll tell my sister to write ya'll if I can't be here due to my demise.

What a week it was!!! Thanks to all of you for being here! I felt like an orphan!

Default Committment

I too am very leary of making a committment to do something for a whole year regarding this WOL. I am afraid of failing yet again, and yet, I feel this is it. I never thought a 'support group' would work for me - and I really don't look at all of you as a 'support' group - with the connotation it brings. Those types of meetings were always framed in the knowledge that each person might leave at any time - especially after they reached their personal goals - they would be gone. Those types of meetings were not with a way of life as the goal, but they had a sort of 'temporary atmosphere'.

I tried various group type meetings - TOPS, WW, etc. - I never really felt a part of a group - and maybe that is my own fault. They required a lot of effort to go to a physical meeting every week and also there was risk in 'opening up' to strangers. I also didn't want more people to 'see' me fail yet again. I also didn't want to make friends and then lose them again - after investing of myself into others, which I do when I meet people, and endure more rejection. Rejection becomes a way of life with 100+ pounds to lose as you all know very well. To be successful, you must learn to live among the rejection and learn how to minimize it as much as possible.

After reading posts all week, I have not come across one post that was negative or judgmental in this group and I feel a safety here that I have never experienced before - not that I am expecting from anyone to provide to me anything - but, it is being given here - and freely and with sincerity - so, therefore, because of the wonderful things I have learned, and have seen here among the members, I am ready to risk the possible losses for the inevitable gains that making a committment to all of you will bring, so...

I, Patti, otherwise known as PattiK, promise to commit to this extraodinary group for one full year. I promise to visit this thread on a very regular basis. I promise to stay true to this group in good times and in bad!! I will promise to continue to be as enthusiastic about low-carbing, in one-year as I am today! I will NOT just disappear without letting everyone know what I am doing or what has happened to me. I also promise to post to this forum with sincerity.

Patti
