We're a lot like you, a little different.

I think the Pemco ad campaign has done a nice job capturing the uniqueness that is Washington. It's a little Western WA centric but that's ok, that's how everything usually is anyhow.

I'm wondering how many Washintonians we have here in the 100lb club. It seems like there's a number of us. Time for a roll call!

Hi, Rodeogirl. Of course, I'm another team member from Washington. I'm from the warmer-wetter side than you! I live about 30 minutes Northeast of Seattle in beautiful MON-roe, Washington. (Some of the old timey folks from here pronounce it with a Southern flair. The rest of us say "Mun-roe" just like Marilyn's last name).

Thanks for the Team Washington shout out!

I've lived all over and actually lived in Monroe for about 3 months a couple years ago out on Old Owen Road in an 80 year old farmhouse. And I went to the fair this year with my nieces and nephews.

Ok I know there's more of you. You can run, but you can't hide.

I'm not really from Washington, just about 30-45 minutes away though in Vancouver, BC!

I actually live in Wisconsin but travel to Washington for my job almost weekly!
I usually stay at a hotel downtown, but next week I'm gonna try the Gaylord on the Potomac!

I was living in Seattle (where I also grew up) when I joined 3FC in 2002 at the start of my weight loss journey. But since then I've moved twice. As the state song says, though, Washington, my home, wherever I may roam. . .

oops! I thought you were talking about DC, not the state! I haven't been there! Sorry!

How's the weather? Maybe I'll come for a visit!

Right smack in the middle of the state here! It looks like my closest neighbor is Redflame. My sister lives on the rainy side of the state and I visit her frequently and like it over there very much--but this is home to me!

OK, so I'm not in the 100 lb. club, but I saw Washington and had to post. I went to the UW for undergrad and for law school, and we live in Mukilteo now.

I work in Mukilteo! Too weird. I always had this impression that everyone was so far away!!

Schumeany, congrats on the size 4's, btw. I was elated to fit my fat a** back into size 20's. I can't imagine how good size 4 would feel.

Michelle, it is really funny because the first time I saw your picture on here, I thought you looked sooo familiar. Now I probably know why! I always think of the other people on here as living on the other side of the world...or at least the other side of the country...not working down the street. Which is silly of course...
