Default How YOU doing?

Okay you have to read that in Joey's voice for it to be funny (from Friends)

I guess I've just kind of jumped in here and made myself comfortable rather than doing a formal intro, but I figure it's only fair that I do since I intend to stick around these parts for quite a long while . At the same time though, I'd like to get to know all of you! So I decided I'd ask some questions and give my answers and would be delighted if you all could answer and tell me a bit about yourself too!

Name/age:
In a relationship?:
kids?
pets?
location?
how did you come to 3FC?
When did you first decide to start losing weight?
What is your "method" of weight loss?
Anything else interesting??


and my answers!

Name/age: Heather/27
In a relationship?: Married since 3/06 to my wonderful husband Colin
kids? two gorgeous kids. Noah is 2 1/2 and Elizabeth is 9 months
pets? none right now
location? Houston TX
how did you come to 3FC? oh gosh I guess it was years ago. No clue what "diet" I was attempting at the time. But obviously it didn't pan out, LOL
When did you first decide to start losing weight? I have to preface this with THIS TIME, THIS TIME it was something that had been building up for awhile. But the start date was the day after a doctor's appointment where I talked to my doctor about my weight and he said I either needed to get serious about doing it on my own, or consider weight loss surgery. That scared me. That I am even eligable for weight loss surgery scares me
What is your "method" of weight loss? calorie counting and watching what kind of carbs I eat
Anything else interesting?? Not much. Getting over a stomach virus. It was my son's first and we were both sick at the same time. YUCK. Not fun at all. So far my daughter and husband seem unscathed
