    Purple is my birthstone and favorite color. Congrats on your previous weight loss. I lost 5 lbs before joining this site. Good luck

    Right tall_t! I wish i could say the same... I over did it at dinner tonight. I just fel the urge to and couldn't stop myself. I kept saying "Is this gonna help you reach your goals? Is it going to make you feel good about yourself? Is it gonna help out the purple team?" No, no, and no...but I ate 2 burgers anyway. They were turkey and on whole wheat but my tummy hurts now! I'll work it off at 4:30am tomorrow though. I'm not letting you guys down!!!! :wink:

    Here's some facts about me:

    - Name is Rach
    - I turn 20 next month
    - I'm a P90x fanatic!
    - Born and raised in MD
    - I have 7 tattoos, all huge though. Working on turning the one's on my arms into full half sleeves and when I lose my back fat I'm getting a huge piece from my shoulders to my butt
    - I'm addicted to VW's, I've owned three, have an array of model cars on my desk at work and when I'm not here i'm usually looking or talking about them

    Well I think that's enough for now. :bigsmile:

    Hi Purplers!!

    My name is Hadiza, 39, 2 kids (20 and 12) with a granddaughter! (too young to be a grandma) so, I insisted she calls me ummi = grandma in my dialect.

    Feel so motivated since joining this site!!! Was with another site here in the UK and lost (6stones), which I have just realised is 84lbs - am more comfortable with stones so must ajust my profile...another 26 lbs (2stones) to go. So, this is just what I need to shift the last 2 stones!!! (fingers crossed and lips sealed from all those temptations!!!

    GO PURPLE!!!!

    Hi fellow Purple team,

    Great to see so many people joining up for the next 16 weeks. Most Exciting!!

    Thought I might introduce myself to you.

    I'm 41 with my next birthday sooner than later! I work full time plus run a small programing business.
    Married with 3 children 12, 14 & 16, an d my family is complete with a dog and cat.

    I live in Tasmania so the outdoors is a good alternative but we are smack bang in the middle of winter, short days and cool crisp days, very chilly nights.

    In search of success this week I joined a Gym, and today had my first run - ok run walk but it was a start. I am finding the logging awesome and a real motivator to see how much calories are in certain food before I eat them.

    the photo is what the aim is - I really couldn't find a decent photo of myself to load but will work on it and the running.

    Look forward to getting to know you better

    Hello Moreeta! I haven't yet built up the confidence to join a gym. I love to weight lift but need someone to tag along and spot me, as well as just being there so I don't feel so self-concious! :laugh:

    Hi Purple Team!

    My name is Alison, and I'm 24, married to my favorite man in the world, and we have two little beagles. (Check out my pics!)

    I live in Richmond, Virginia, work as a graphic designer, and I love to run! I am planning on running my second half marathon this November.

    I don't have much to lose but I'm excited about being a part of the team to help lose the last few pounds! I am also doing a Biggest Loser competition at my work - everyone chipped in $10 and the person who loses the biggest % of their weight in 8 weeks gets the total pot!

    Looking forward to the next 16 weeks with y'all!

    Hi Rach,

    is that you really under the car? If so Impressive!
  • reet34reet34 Posts: 47Member Posts: 47Member
    Welcome Alison,

    I'll take the 1/2 marathon as inspirational. I am only aiming to get back to regular daliy runs for about 30 minutes each day.

    If any of us need running tips we know where to ask :)

    Cheers Moreeta
