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 :dizzy: 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!

Congrats to the newly engaged!! I feel like I just got engaged and married but my first anniversary is coming up in August so I guess I am part of an old married couple now! Welcome :)
