    Hey Team!!

    Name: Marcy
    State or Country: New Jersey
    Time Zone: Eastern
    Age: 27
    How many pounds want to lose during the show: 15-20lbs

    I'm definitely excited to be doing one of these (I've only ever managed to join at like the end of one of these challenges) with you guys! I recently joined a new gym and I am incredibly excited to be making healthy changes in my life from working out to dieting. I plan to focus on the paleo diet as I had tried it once before and loved the amount of energy I had and how eating clean really just made me feel great.

    Can't wait to get started!

    Hey, I'm Tara

    - Say about 15-20 pounds to lose which will bring me to my overall goal weight of around 135.

    I don't have a television cable subscription any more so no obvious way of keeping up with the show. Guess I'll have to trick a US online player into thinking I'm in the US to get caught up!

    25 pounds down since last August but I need a kick into the New Year to get over an indulgent, boozy and lazy Christmas spent with my family in Toronto. I'll be back in Dublin from next Wednesday, so back on the straight and narrow with the odd run, JM shredding every second day and one to two roller derby training nights per week (2 to 3 hours, yikes!). Oh, and back to better eating and all my veggies too. I've eaten too much carb the last couple of weeks and it's actually made me feel a bit sick afterwards!

    Good luck all!

    Welcome TEAM!!!

    I'm Michelle from Ohio.
    I have a long way to go on this journey, but realistically I'd like to lose 20lbs during the course of the show.

    I'd lost a lot of weight 2 years ago and then baby, dad, life etc. got in the way. I'm determined that 2016 will be my year all around.

    Here we go!

    Hello Friends,

    Name: Melissa
    State or Country: Marion Ohio
    Time Zone: Eastern
    Age: 34 for only 8 more days my birthday is the 14th
    How many pounds want to lose during the show: 25- 35lbs

    Sorry guys I am late joining the group but I been going through allot of back pain due to a degenerated disk in my lower back but I know my extra weight is not heling it so I am trying my best to stay active while I work fulltime and then workout for 2 hours a day 5 days a week. I am currently in physical therapy twice a week for my back. but I don't want that to get me down so I am here and ready to go. I need to get rid of my extra 63 lbs. I weigh 203 and want to get to 140-145 at least I was 160 when I went into the hospital in late June with pancreatitis but after many procedures the doctors come to find out that my pancreas has two bile ducts instead of one now so I really need to watch what I eat. so like I said I am here to win it this time. good luck to you all and don't be afraid to add me to your friend list.
