    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!

    Thanks for the new thread! I would be willing to co-lead the group, but I do not want to undertake it on my own again.

    Hoping I can stick with things this time around. I've really fallen off the wagon the last couple of challenges.

    Sounds good. I'm hoping to be good at updates, but we know what happened last thread. When I meet with the doctor, we'll work out a food/exercise routine and estimated weight gain for this pregnancy. And then hopefully I won't be so incredibly tired!

    tgr & chimi - I can 'help' out too, if want. 3 of us, is better than 1.

    my stats are the same. Last few wks. & esp; wknds. have been VERY busy w/family in town & the holiday. Having our son's Easter candy in the house from relatives, isn't doing us justice, either. Oh, and the 1/2 of left over cake has been staring @ me all week too. My weigh in is on Friday & we're still doing a weightloss comp. w/another couple, so that's helping a bit, but overall, it's been tough getting back on track, esp; after our vacation.

    I seriously fell off track last challenge, only losing 1 of my 7 lb goal. I'm back for another round, hopefully with more dedication, will power, and focus. I'm not going to be as ambitious as last time, and only set my goal for 5 lbs this time. Good luck everyone!
