Same here Francie. And if I do meet another one, they're usually a MALE. And the mix-ups in spelling people always do to me, and addressing a random letter to me as MR. ugh So I got pretty good at telling them the rule, "I is for his, E for hers." But some people still look at me like, HUHHH??? lol

As a Jaime, I get a WHOLE lot of "Mr." letters. Occasionally my job will require me to email random people to request info and the responses are 99% of the time, Dear Mr. xxxx.... I just laugh I guess, I don't know what else to do!

I have another fur-Baby but he has got his own home now since he iss all grown up lol.. Rascal my 9 year old black and white Cat .. Leah is very allergic to him so he had to go move in with my friends.
Im lucky enough to have a wonderful hubby that works away so i can stay at home with the kids.. Atm he is on a fifo job where he comes home for a week then flys out for 4 weeks ( fifo = fly in fly out) so i dont have to work.
I have had a weight problem since i was a teenager .. It all started with gladular fever which lead to chronic fatigue .. hooray .. and two pregnancies and a sick daughter later (im stress eater lol) i am here trying to get my life back.. I wanna run with the kids and not be tired all the time.. dont get me wrong i have a great life.. i just want to embrass every part of it

Omg, my own family still spells my name with a "I". It makes me sooooo mad. They've known me how long and still cant spell my own stinkin name. When I went to Catholic school everyone called me St. Francis. Grrr...I hated my name for the longest time. I'm pretty okay with it now though, lol. I just go by Francie..although some people think my name is Francies and not Frances, lol.

Also, wondering about your signatures - how do you get two side-by-side, and how do you center them?
If you use tickerfactory you have to chose small tickers. Then when you paste them into your sig area you have to take out ALL the spaces and wrap them in center format.

Hi! My name is Debbie and it's my first challenge. I'm so glad to be on the Blue Team!!

A little about me....I'm married to a great guy and we live in Washington state, but originally from Riverside, CA. I have a son who is married and lives down south of us. So now we have furbabies left at home. Two cats, Matilda and James, and two dogs, Sadie and Daisy.
I've been on this journey since April of last year (so it's almost my 1 year anniversary ) and look forward to continuing on. It's hard work but so well worth it.
Exercise is my downfall and that's the main reason I joined this challenge. With all you posting on your progress, I'm sure it will motivate me to get my buns in gear and move, move move!!!

What do you prefer to be called? Debbie
We talk a lot about being OP? What is YOUR plan? I'm a calorie counter. Watching fats and sugars as well.
How can we help you acheive your goals? Is there any specific request you have?Just be here and posting so I can keep being motivated by your progress and achievements.
Looking for a partner to hold you accountable for calories, exercise, etc? Do you need some inspiration each morning? Nope, just being here helps me already!

GO BLUE GO!!

Hello Old and Welcome New Blues!
I'm so glad to be back in the challenge. Good luck, good patience and good choices everyone!

What do you prefer to be called?
Sonja or Fluffy


We talk a lot about being OP? What is YOUR plan?
My eating plan is to make healthy food choices following a combination of the South Beach Diet and USRDA rules. I use FitDay to track my cholesterol, sodium and fat. Everything else (protein, carbs, fiber) falls into place.
My exercise plan is to exercise 7 hours a week. 90 minutes is already allotted to my treasured belly dance class. And, I'm starting C25K today. I hope to get a weighted hula hoop during this challenge.


How can we help you achieve your goals?
I'm self-motivated, but I can always use advice when I'm stumped. And, Tee's recipes are always welcome.


Is there any specific request you have? Looking for a partner to hold you accountable for calories, exercise, etc? Do you need some inspiration each morning?
I like weekly exercise or goal challenges. Variety is the spice of life, they say.

I can be chatty and smiley obsessed, so I'll just apologize now. I'm looking forward to continuing my journey to a healthier me with you all. Go Blue!!
