We are a core group of women that met on the Biggest Loser Site and have come over to fat secret since it,s free and user friendly. We look forward to getting to know you. My story is I lost 100 lbs on weight watchers gained half back relost it on Biggest Loser and am sitting pretty to close the deal this year. I never have but this is the year to close the deal. I live in Boise Idaho, own a nail salon amd have a grown son. My bff is my Lab, Gwen. A pedometer would be great for this challenge. Laurie

Hello everyone! My name is Sherry. I was not an overweight child but gained too much with both of my children and never lost it all completely. After my divorce in 2000 I really put on the weight which has affected my self esteem and confidence. I have lost 10 lbs with Biggest Loser and I know for me that losing means moving. I am ready to do this!!

So glad to have so many new team members! Hello everyone! Sherry thanks for writing my bio, lol! Only difference is that I am not divorced but feel single a lot of the time. I started out with a huge bang on BL but the holidays and illness got the best of me over the last month but I have fought my way back to almost where I was when we decided to move over here to fatsecret!

Ready to rock, stomp and take names in 2013! Let's get going!!!

Hey All - Welcome to the new peopled.

My story, I'm one of 4 girls and was always the "big" one. I tell everyone I went from a childs size 5 to a woman's 13 and on.... I started my journey at 218 and currently in the 170 - 180's, which I have resided in since last June.

Ready to kick some butt and get to my goal weight... (25 pounds away)..
I'm married, have no children, but borrow my great niece and nephews when I need to...

I agree the rest of these sassy sista's that the group is compassionate and strong and will be here for you thick or thin.. and never berate, and will always encourage, you.

Lets get this thing going..Bad Grin

What's your story?
This is not a diet, it is about a life journey, I am committed and I will succeed!

Hi, everyone!

I am new to this group. I was searching for a challenge to kick off my commitment to myself right, and this one looks like fun! My story is... I was married in 2011 to the love of my life, and getting thin for the big day involved some serious crash dieting along with exercise. After the wedding, I noticed I was gaining back a bit of the weight I'd lost, which I expected, but I've actually gained much more than I'm comfortable with and I'm the heaviest I've ever been. I'm turning 30 in August this year, and my goal is to look and feel good by my birthday so I can start a new decade at my best.

Here's to a healthy and happy 2013!

Hi everybody!

Can't wait to get started. I've been trying to walk/run now for 2 weeks - so far so good. Hoping some accountability will keep me on track. My ultimate goal is to get back to a 10mm run by December.
