    Your threadmistress for this thread is looch

    The last challenge was:
    Independence Day Challenge 2011

    The last thread to have all the challenges in it is: New Year's 2011 Challenge

    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!

    If you are a member of the existing challenge your information will automatically be moved forward to the new challenge. If you would like to change any of your information please post an update in RED. Please also post your final weight from the previous challenge once you have made your final weigh in.

    Hope to see everyone throughout the challenges!

    Instead of having "answers" on a math test, they should just call them "impressions," and if you got a different "impression," so what, can't we all be brothers?

    Women are angels, and when someone breaks our wings
    we continue to fly...on broomsticks.
    We are flexible like that.
