Thank You BCB

Recommended Posts

I have struggled with writting this for 2 days now because very few of you know me. I originally joined this site in Oct. 2000. I was here until 2006. I didn't post alot but I read daily. After 4 yrs being away I came back to this site and had to rejoin so that is why it shows me as a new member.

At my WW meeting the other night, a lady I have been friends with just seemed so defeated in her weight loss results and her motivation almost gone. I ask her if she ever got on any weight loss sites and read success stories and to get tips and advice. She said she hadn't but she needed to. I gave her BCB. We talked for about 45 min. and as I started to leave she thanked me for giving her the website. I told her she was welcome and then told her after 15 yrs of being 50 to 70lbs over weight and 10 yrs of losing some and gaining back more I found BootCamp Buddies!! and that I don't think that I would have ever made it to goal and become a lifetime member if not for BCB. I was a little in shock at my self because I don't think I have ever told myself that. But the results prove it.

After joining this site and rejoining WW I got my attitude ajustment and my motivation and got to work and became a lifetime member in 2003. I have maintained under the goal weight set for me for 7yrs. In Aug this year I started going back to meetings because I was slipping and I wanted to get a few more lbs off and to get to my personal goal that I never really tried to reach as I was comfortable where I was. I also came back to BCB. Yesterday I was reading a book and I seen the 'Story Of The Geese'--That story or part of it is on this site and we use to use it when I was first here in 2000. Remember, Honk- Honk- Honk

I just want to say THANK YOU, DENISE AND ALL THE BUDDIES OF BOOTCAMP

WE ARE BOOTCAMP BUDDIES 'DOING WHAT IT TAKES TO MAKE WEIGHTLOSS A REALITY'

Made Lifetime 3/08/2000

Never since returned to starting weight... However, I have had to recommit from time to time... and get this back into order. This is NOT a diet, but a lifetime way of eating.

Dottie... thanks for sharing. I found BCB last summer after hearing "A Medical Moment by Dr. Art Hister" on one of our radio stations. He was citing a study that showed one of the major factors in successful weight loss was having a support group. What was new about this particular study was that they found having an online support group was as effective as the "live" ones. After hearing that report, I googled weight loss support groups and BCB came up. Sometimes I feel I'm spending too much time on the computer, but then I think of all the people I've known over the years who have lost weight but then gained it back almost as quickly as they lost it. I don't want to be in that camp... so, I check in here every day and tell myself it is for my health today and tomorrow. I appreciate this site every time I'm on it... and have shared a LOT of the information I have gleaned from it with friends of mine who are also working the WW program.


Linda... just don't quit! Ever!

Thanks everyone. I am so glad to be a part of BCB. I came here first before going back to meetings because this is where I get most of my motivation and knowledge.

I love BCB.

 

Have a great day Buddies!!!!

I am new to BCB, but after reading several posts and all of the incredible stories told and successes marked, I can see that this is going to be a great place to find the support I need to be successful this time. I would just like to say thank you to those who made BCB possible. I have never found anything so supportive and so open to helping those of us who struggle daily with weight loss.

Honk, honk, honk.................

I came to BCB back when I came back to WWers in 2001. I was attending meetings (which I love) but found the support, and "tough" attitude here just what I needed. I was honestly scared to go off program during that time since I knew I'd be letting my buddies here down. Happy to say I got back to goal weight in 11 months, and I've kept it over ever since. Having someplace to come for daily support and inspiration has played a big part. :salut

Aw Dottie...I'm an "oldbie" too, just rejoined myself! I was here a few weeks ago and kept trying to log in with my old info. I finally gave up today and re-registered. :) I started here in 2000 and made Lifetime in '01, and I never could have done it without this site! When I'm serious about losing, I know where to go...BCB!!

HONK! HONK! HONK!! (I used to have that on my mouse pad!)
