Hey everyone -

Just thought i'd say hello and introduce myself. i'm a 32-year-old ex-roller derby gal ("fresh meat" is what we called new girls - or sometimes "skater tots" ;)) who gained a bunch of weight once i wasn't skating several times a week, for hours at a time. But the weight problem wasn't necessarily new.

So i'm back on the wagon! Happy to meet you all!

hi and welcome! I LOVE the name "skater tots," and also totally love your jogging hippo -- the hippo is my totem animal!!

What kind of plan do you have to get healthier? Keep us posted on your progress : )

I've always wanted to roller derby as I love roller skating... but, I've always been intimidated because I'm so short and I'm afraid of getting clobbered.

Glad you joined us!

Skater tots is AWESOME. I have been giggling since I read it.

Well, I'm doing the Weight Watchers thing, but on my own (I still have the literature from when I did it, oh, 10 years ago).

Whoa. i just realized i've been out of college for 10 years now! Time warp. :D
