I am 28…and think I will stop counting next year

I am a teacher…math rocks!

I am the funeral/emergency room friend …good in a crisis!

I am single…I am USUALLY okay with that.

I can have a slightly off color sense of humor…I hope laughter burns calories!

I am a lifelong weight struggler…at 8 I realized I was bigger than the other kids.

I have an unnatural obsession with penguins...and hippos, but only at Christmas

My highest weight was 292 lbs…think I cried enough to make it 291!

Chocolate is my downfall…but it is God’s way of apologizing for PMS!

My lowest "adult weight" was 202 in college...never could quite break that 200 barrier

I LOVE books, movies, and is better in fiction.

I love Christmas music…I have over 1200 different songs

I love coffee…Starbucks may be the happiest place on earth.

Joining Challenges
I am new to this site and LOVE IT! I think the challenges are a great idea and look like fun, but is it "Tacky" to join more than one at a time? I joined one and started one that have overlapping goals.

Is this looked at as "Bad form?"
