Default Hello!! Newbie here!

Hi Girlies (and a few guys!)
I'm new to the board.. My name is Alyssa, I'm 24, and I have about 60 pounds to lose! My boyfriend and I have picked out an engagement ring and now I'm just (im)patiently waiting to get it - so I have major motivation in the fact that I want to feel healthy and happy on my wedding day. Just wanted to say hello, I'll be in the South Beach boards a lot but I wanted to make some online pals around my age group. Looks like an awesome forum!

Cheers,
Alyssa

Hey Alyssa-- I got so excited when I saw your post because it looks like we have a lot in common. I just sent you a PM, so I hope you notice it! Congrats on getting the ball rolling on your weight loss AND finding the right man
