Beaka, I saw someone who looked JUST LIKE YOU at the TJMaxx in Duluth, off Pleasant Hill Road, about a month ago. What a coincidence if it was you!!!
Hello to Cakebatter, Bejeweled, LoveDC425, OhPuleezee, and CandTlove!!!!
Since we're making introductions...my name is Paula - and I'm from the A-A-A-A!!! I work for a Software Company, and have also been overweight most of my life. At my smallest adult weight, I was 160 pounds, and that was after a bout of the chicken pox (I'd kill to be 160 now)! Anyway, I am currently on the South Beach Diet, have been for a year, and since I started dieting last May, I've lost 50 pounds!!! I'm currently having a difficult time because I've been in party mode since Memorial Day. My ultimate goal is to be a size 12, or maybe even a ten...but my first (major) goal is to get under 200 pounds.
Someone mentioned booty - I've never really had one, really wish I had one, so I'm hitting the squats and lunges in the gym, trying to get one!!! And the hair thing - don't get me started...reference the "hair maintenance for women of color" thread if needed... *sigh*
Good to meet you all!
/off topic RIP to Michael Jackson. He will surely be missed...May he have the peace he deserved.
