I'm real, and so are my sisters
Our history in a nutshell: I worked for an online service (Prodigy) back in the mid to late 90s when the net was new. I wanted to learn HTML so that that I would be able to understand what our customers were asking about, so I created a 'personal page' as they were called back then. I decided to use it to focus on our diet goals together, since we could each access it from our homes which were far apart. We never in our wildest dreams thought anyone would find it! I even promised one sister that no one would ever see it, which is the only reason she agreed to participate
I came up with name after reading an article about 'two chicks on bikes' that were biking across the country to raise money for cancer awareness. Anyway, we were found
We received hundreds of email every day from people that said they were just like us, so we created a forum for everyone to gather. At that time, there were just 3 other diet communities out there. Dotti's, the official WW forum, and Diet Talk. Now they are everywhere
Our site was acquired a few years ago by Internet Brands, at a time when our lives took different directions. I still post occasionally, although I'm not a regular here anymore.
Btw, I lost over 100 pounds and made dramatic improvements to my health through a diet plan that I devised for my own personal health goals.
Thanks for asking
