    Who we are:

    We are a group of women who for one reason or another want to shed a few (or more) lbs. We need the encouragement of others no matter their size or goal and we thrive in an atmosphere where we can all support one another.

    Want to join the fun?!?

    We welcome one and all. It doesn't matter what diet you are on (if any) or how many miles a week you run (if any) we will all find lots of help and support here.

    Feel free to join at any time during the challenge.
    It's better to join NOW than to wait until we start a new challenge!

    OPEN FOR POSTING!!



    The last challenge was so successful for so many people. Let's keep it up. Memorial Day, and in my world, that means summer, is only 15 weeks away! I am personally hoping to have to buy all new shorts by then


    PLEASE CHECK IN WITH YOUR CHALLENGE CURRENT WEIGHT (if you want to display it) AND CHALLENGE GOAL. PLEASE REMEMBER TO POST ALL UPDATES IN RED SO THEY ARE EASY TO SEE. THANKS AND GOOD LUCK!
