100 lb. Club - Talking about and showing off our families
02-24-2007, 12:21 AM
OK, ladies and gents, we spend alot of time focused on weight here, yeah I know, it's what we're here for. I'm so enjoying getting to know everyone, I like knowing what people look like. I also like showing off my family!! So, I'll go first. I am Angi, 31, Matt is 31, and we have 2 kids, Alannah 3<this past January> and Hayden is 18 months old. I have 2 Associate degrees, 1 in computerized bookkeeping and 1 in Computer Information Systems. I was working on a Bachelors in Psyche and got burnt out. I did alot of volunteering in shelters while in Los Angeles which gave me time to reasses my goals. I take on to many of other peoples emotional hurts which in turn hurts me, so I decided that wasn't the way for me. I'm going back to school in 6-8 weeks for cosmetology. I still plan on meeting my need to help people by volunteering within my community with shelters, blood drives etc, just not as a full time job. Anyway, here's some links to my family, I hope you enjoy them and I look forward to seeing you and yours.
My kids and I, a rare shot, since I'm usually the camera guy in our house.
My son, Hayden with his first big boy cut. I've since let it grow back out, I'm not ready for my *baby* to look so much like a big boy yet.
My daughter, Lil' Miss PrissyPants, Herself. She has been, from birth, completely and totally ladylike. Given her choice, she says she plans to grow up and be a princess. Not Barbie, "cus she looks funny" but Ariel would be ok!
And King Dady Stud Muffin<as he hates to be called, so of course, we all call him this, it's from a billboard ad from DeBeers about 3 years ago>
*And I did steal this thread from 30-somethings, it seemed like a great way to know what we all look like, and to give us time to brag on our families a bit*

It's late, and I'm tired, so I'll share later. But I wanted to go ahead and say that your baby has the longest eyelashes ever! Wowee!

This is a great idea. I have been with my husband for 21 years. We have two terrific kids. My 19 y/o is at college going for business finance degree. A wonderfull person I am extremely proud of. His grades always amaze me.
Our 4 y/o full of energy, surprized my husband and myself after 14 years of having an only child. She loves and stays active. She has followed in her brothers footsteps in the martial arts. He is a black belt in Tae Kwon do and she is in Karate.
We own two campgrounds, one in northern Wisconsin and one in central Wisconsin. We bought the first back in "88" and the other in "94". I have been a cosmetologist, head start aid and many other part time jobs. For the past 2 years I have focused on my family and starting to get my health back on track. I lost 50 lbs then gained back some, now I have truly changed my lifestyle and I'm on the road to never being fat again.
Before owning the campgrounds my husband was a robotics technician. We will probably sell both campgrounds in the next couple years and semi retire.
With a 4 y/o it is alittle early to totally retire. I'm 45 and my husband is 53. He is starting to get tired of all the people around him. My son says he won't know what to do without a thousand people in his backyard. We have had a good life in the campground business. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes the outdoors and people. Lots more to say but I think thats enough for now.

Hi! I don't post in the 100 pound club a lot, but I read it daily and I feel like I know all of you! So, here's my story...
I'm the 31 year old divorced mom to three great kids. I have Bachelor degrees from Purdue University in Psychology and Sociology. I stayed home with my kids when I was married, but went back to work when I got divorced. I currently am the Program Director for a Dementia Care (Alzheimer's) Unit with right around 60 residents. I love my job, most of the time ;) My kids are 8, 6, and 4 (Quentin, Julia, and Travis). We stay pretty busy with football, cheerleading, and soccer. We're the biggest Colts fans around, and we were even in the bad years. We live in Indiana, just outside of Indianapolis.
Here's a link to some pictures:
I hope that works! The album that I made for this purpose is called Mom2QJandT. This thread will be a lot of fun, I like getting to know all of you!

Ok, now I have a little bit of time to tell you a little something about me.
My name is Lynsey (24) and I am married to Eric (25). We have 2 daughters, Shaylen (4) and Delainey (15 months), that are our whole world. I stayed home with them until Nov 06 when I started working with my husband at a pressure washer manufacturing plant. I know, sounds like fun huh. LOL! I am in the stock room and bring small parts to the men. I also do some UPS shipping out here and there. I am one of 2 girls in the whole plant. I love it. I don't have to worry about catty women all the time.
So, that's me in a nut shell. I loved being a SAHM but I just can't afford it anymore. Plus, I think I'd eat nonstop if I was still here all day everyday. I eat when I'm bored....but I'm fixing that!
