Arrivederci, AuRevoir, Adieu, Adios...Goodbye

Postby kate_turner2000 » Thu Nov 08, 2007 7:56 am

Hello Dear Weightloss Friends!

Just letting you know that I have come to the decision to leave the forum.

I am not going to drag peoples names through the mud as I leave but these people know who they are and perhaps they can offer some support to people who have weight to lose and genuinely need the support rather than form mothers groups and seclude people.

I am happy to know that I am able to leave and take away so much knowledge about losing weight which I hope to continue using. I have met some wonderful friends and some not so nice people but the people who know me best and who have continued to support me on my weightloss journey and with decisions that as a moderator I have made to BETTER the forum will be in touch with me via MSN and Facebook.


Oh and Scott the admin guy is sooo wonderful and is doing such a great job of this forum and homepage. A lot of it goes unnoticed because he is behind the scenes but I have acknowledged the fact that he is doing a great job here and I am making banana bread later in the week so i will come and post my recipe and photo for the competition and thats all.

Keep up the great work guys, there are many supportive people on the forum and you know who you are. Don't let anyone make you feel unimportant-- you are awesome and you can achieve great things. Remember to focus on healthy eating and exercise- find a balance. Don't ever be embarrassed for being big but be proud of the fact that you are doing something about your health.

I wont go into individual people and how great I think they are because as I said, I will see these people on MSN and facebook anyway. Remember to treat others as though you are the others (i read that off a billboard out side of a church in newcastle haha).

Oh! going to lock my progress section too :) gunna miss you guys *sniff sniff*

Much Love XO

Kate, I don't know what to say. You've been doing a great job on here with the moderating, and you've always been there to pst replies to people when they need it. It's gonna be hard to carry the can as moderator without you.

You've also come a long way with your weight loss journey, and I hope that continues. I didn't know you were on facebook, but I'm going to go find you now :wink:

I'm really sad to see you go, but I guess life is all about flux and change.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Kate - you are such a beautiful women and this forum won't be the same without you. *Sniff*

You've come such a long way yourself and have so much to give. I'm sure without this forum you'll only have more ways to give to those around you so generously.

Keep in touch - you have my msn (even though I'm hardly ever on!)
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

you know I'm going to come and hunt you down now don't you!!!

You will be missed terribly on here. You are one the longest standing members and have always been there to support us all.

I know that you have made the decision already, but please reconsider.

For our sakes!!!!

Kate - I always enjoyed coming on here and reading your comments (you were the only one that remembered I love Duran Duran!!). It is a shame that it has come to the point were you felt you needed to leave us. But as I have experienced on other sites - there are some really nasty people around. I hope that you reach your goal in time for your reunion - you will knock - em dead!

Anyway we will continue on Moderating this forum as you did, so spammers beware :twisted:

Take care Kate.
