Default Red Team Fall Focus 2010 Getting to Know You

Hello everyone and welcome to the red team! From now until Sunday we will use this thread to get to know each other. Some of us are veterans to these challenges and many are newbies. Welcome to everyone! This is going to be a great challenge for the red team I just know it! Jump right in and introduce yourself!

I'll start: My name is Shannon, I'm 26 years old and I am a preschool teacher at an international school in Geoje Island, South Korea. I have an amazing supportive boyfriend and have been on my committed journey to changing my life for a little over a year and a half now. These challenges are what helps keep me motivated and helps provide support that I need on a daily basis. I look forward to this challenge personally, as well as leading the team for the second time. Welcome everyone!

Hi, I'm Linda and I stay at home to take care of my 10 month old son. This is my first Biggest Loser challenge and I am excited to get started. I started my weight loss program on June 12th and have lost 24 lbs and 17.5 inches so far.

Hi, I have been in the weight loss bandwagon since May of this year when I lost my job. I still have not found a new job but I have managed to lose around 25 pounds since then. I am married and have three nearly grown up children. This is my second BL challenge this year. Go Red!

Shan-I am a bit unsure about the starting weight. Do I use my weight when I signed up or do I use my weight today or perhaps my weight on 9-19 . I kinda thought we used our sign up weight and got a bonus if we lost before the start date but I read a few posts that led me to think this might be construed as cheating so I am not sure what weight to use. Adorable boyfriend pic btw!

Heya!
I'm brand new to the boards (well, a couple weeks) and this is my first challenge. My name is Tori, I'm 32 and live in Portland, Oregon. I've had poor eating habits for years and have never had an active lifestyle. I'm here to help keep my goals in the front of my mind. I'm an adult geek and getting married next fall.

Hi my name is Mel. I'm 42, married, work part-time and raise my 3 kids.
I started my lifestyle change in Jan 2009. I believe this is my 5th challenge? I'm hoping to be more dedicated than I was during the summer challenge.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Shan- I agree with Terapet- love the new profile pic! Too cute

Hi everyone, this is my second BL challenge. My goal is to eat clean and get into a routine. I am starting a bit more organized this time. I am moving in a month and starting a different job. Hopefully planing my meals and fitness routine keeps the stress level down! Good luck to everyone!

Hi everyone. My name is Jen, I'm 42, married with 2 kids, ages 9 and 2, work full-time and totally feel like I'm on the go 24/7. This is probably my 3rd challenge but I didn't make it through the other 2, mostly I could stick with anything for very long but I'm determined to make it through this one!!!

Hi! My name is Kim, I'm 26, and live in middle of no where Vermont. I work between 60-80 hours/week, full time at a middle school as an aid and part time at a restaurant. I try to get involved in as many 3FC challenges as I can as I find that they help keep me accountable. I run the 20-somethings TBL Challenges and LOVE them, but am psyched to be part of a longer challenge, as ours only run for 6 weeks.

It's been a struggle, but I'm hoping that this journey will be my last one losing weight. Then I can start a new one, MAINTAINING!!! Looking forward to getting to know everyone!!!

Hi everyone, I believe this will be my third challenge. I always seem to start off well, and then I struggle. I am really determined to do better this time.
I am 40, and a SAHM to my three children who are 11, 9, 7.
I look forward to getting to know everyone

Hi there!

I'm a 39 year old working mom. I started a new plan on August 12th and I've lost about 16 pounds on it so far. I'm in this for the long haul, I have about 100 lbs to lose. This challenge is really exciting for me and I think it will go a long way to keeping me focused and on plan.

Looking forward to getting to know you all over the next few months!

Hello red team. Just checking in real quick. I have been busy working away at school with my kids as they have holiday all next week. Things are slowing down as Friday is half way finished right now. I will be back on later tonight or tomorrow to do personals. Glad to see so many people jumping in.


Today's question: What are the most important three things you would tell someone to help them with their journey?
