Default What do you want?

Perhaps that should read "What do YOU want?"

Going back 2 months or so, I had to contact Asy to rejuvenate the forum space - it had become unreachable - some hostname expiration or something... she sorted it, but maybe it put the scares up people, thinking NewYou was "going away".

Anyways, Asy sorted that, and yet, in the time since then, it seems everyone has deserted the place. Isn't anyone losing weight any more? Or is this space "Not doing it for you now?"





What is it? What do YOU want to see on here? I am still around - I can't answer for anyone else (and I might now be talking to myself - I dunno) but I'd love to hear from YOU.

Post to me below to share your thoughts on what was once a go-ahead, happy, supportive, Cohen-inspired, place to bask - or vent. Let's get it back to that again. I can't do it on my own though - I need YOU !!!

Hope to hear from you all soon,
Koh

Hi Miss J,
Well, here I am - hard to respond when there is no-one to respond to though.

How are you going? What brings you back? Are you still maintaining, having any probs with same, or are you just wanting to catch up with earlier friends? What's happening with you?

BTW, I am here pretty much daily - just once a day, when I respond to whomever has posted, so leave me a message and I'll get back to you next day or so.

Koh

Hopefully as the new year gets underway, people might start returning, or some newbies join up. I personally think this space is amazing which is why I have returned. It honestly just needs people, I can't think of anything really that I need from the forums which isn't already offered. There's tons of information, plenty of diaries to read through and an avenue just to track, vent, reflect etc among a tribe who get it. Personally I feel I have done this program so many times, and maybe too long (keeping in mind it's meant to be short term). I know my old program works. My resolve ebbs and flows. That's only something I can rectify. It means dedicating time to reading the supportive advice, tips and inspirations found in the forum and contributing what I can. Thanks for asking the question.

Hi BT,
Good to hear, and thanks for adding your thoughts. Also good to see that you and Kristine are getting it together once more to re-do your Plan and bring you both back into your desired places.

By the way, are you familiar with the (more recent) learnings re Resets and the trap that can befall folk who cut out carbs for a long period? If yes, then great - perhaps re-read it to be sure of yourself once in Maintenance. And in case you haven't seen it, here's the link:-

That thread is helpful. I have never started refeed, though I could have and should have every time. More about that in my diary. This time, I need to do refeed at the right time, and that information is going to be useful. I feel I likely would have been impacted negatively without it at refeed.

Hi everyone! I am back! I had reached my goal weight in 2019 and maintained until COVID! Now I am back and with added weight, so really need you all and the forum. It really helped me last time!

Hi Koh, I love having the forum here to pop in and out of and get inspiration when needed. Seems I haven't done that in 6 months, but glad to find it here still

Hi Hope and Flygirl,
Good to see you both back for a refresh, or to gain confidence in what truly is a great program. Thanks must go to Asy who created Newyou, and who pays the dollars to keep it running today.

I think both Asy and myself know the value of this place - even today, there are many who "drop by", whether to gain confidence, check their knowledge, see any new learnings, revisit past diaries as a reminder of how things go and what they did to get through it last time. There can be a million reasons really.

Whatever YOUR reason, welcome back again. Just like giving up smoking, it might take "more than one go" to finally nail it. Be assured you are not alone if you need to be back here.

That earlier link (a few posts up) mentioned how those on Reset could be inadvertently sabotaging themselves by "doing what they have been told" (or have read in some diaries). It informs that some information surrounding Reset has been found to be INCORRECT - yes, even some words quoted by consultants. So DO check out that link. Oh wait - here it is again to save you looking:-

https://newyouforum.com/forum/showth...654#post447654

Hope that helps someone,
Koh

And, while I think of it, let's have a quick review of some earlier thoughts regarding "What to do when on Maintenance and something goes wrong". I had heard many would "jump back onto Plan" for sometimes tiny uplifts in their weight. But was that the right way to tackle things? I penned this topic - and Uncle Tom Cobbley and all stepped in to discuss what turned out to be a "full and frank discussion" re maintaining in the best way.

Enjoy,
Koh
