I don't recognize a lot of names but that's ok, I love to meet new people!

So...Hello to everyone. Very quickly, 3 years ago I reached my goal-- lost 86 pounds. Got Pregnant, had a child, gained all +25 more. I am finally ready to do this again. I've been busting my rump all week and so far 5 days in... 7.5 lbs gone. Official weigh in on Sunday. I am all or nothing. My eats are fantastic, I'm up to 3 miles walking per day and have been downing 3 liters of H2O. By this time next year, I will be at goal!

I look foward to know all of you, and cannot wait to do this with you!
