    Hi Rach,

    is that you really under the car? If so Impressive!

    Yea that's me...about 40lbs ago as well haha! I sold that car though :cry:, but replaced it with an early 90's Gti. Love of my life!!! I have some work to do on it this weekend actually. My bf told me last night as we arrived at the grocery store, that he gets to pick my next car because he doesn't fit in mine! Haha, but this is coming from a guy that's 6'2" and drove a GEO METRO for a year!!! :laugh: I love that boy.

    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

    30 minutes is AWESOME! if you can do 30, you can train up to 60, and if you can do 60 minutes, you can train up to 90 minutes ... and so on :)

    you should check out the MFP Runner's Club on the fitness message board - there are lots of great running tips on there and people who run WAY more than me!!!

    good luck, and i look forward to losing weight together over the next 16 weeks!

    Hello Allison! I envy your love of running! I started to do the couch potato 5k program with my sister awhile back but she quit on me and now I live on a busy street with no shoulder to run on. I might start running in my mom's neighborhood though. Oh and cute puppies!!!!

    Oooooh wow!!! I'd love to see the tattoos. I have really cool orange lilies on each of my feet, cursive VW on on forearm, a volkswagen symbol in some pinstriping on the other forearm, I sun kinda design with a guitar pick in the center on the left side of my chest, pin-up ish girl with flowers around her on from shoulder to elbow on my left arm (girl inspired by a photo of Katy Perry), and another girl w/ microphone (taken from a pic of Shirley Manson of Garbage) with a skull and crossbones and 2 black roses on my right arm, shoulder to elbow. I looooove tattoos!

    Hi all! I haven't been around much on the boards. Well, actually I have been around, but I haven't had the time to sit and post anything - just read. I'm going to make it a point to be all over the boards this weekend though. Anyway, I haven't submitted my measurements yet. I left the measuring tape out one night last week and last time I saw it, my DH was playing around with it. :grumble: Of course no one knows where it is now. :grumble:

    So happyand excited to be here on this team since this is my first real challenge. Oh Yeeeaah! circlestar.gif

    Lol, it's funny how things can get "lost" and then when you aren't searching for them, you find them...

    I like your ticker!

    I haven't properly introduced myself yet...

    I am Tina. I live in Fredericksburg VA (Halfway between Richmond and Washington DC). I commute to Northern Virginia every day for work which is about 2 hours each way (ugh!).

    I have three beautiful children ages 13, 12, and 10. They are very good at encouraging me to keep on working out and getting healthy. They are now fit enough that I couldn't catch them if I tried...:sick:
    I hope to change that!

    My middle daughter was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer called Chondrosarcoma 2 years ago. My life since then has been all about getting her healthy, and she is now in remission. Now it is time to focus on me!

    I look forward to this wonderful challenge and journey with all of you!
