    Hey everyone! I'm Erica, and live in Calvert County MD, but work in DC (Bolling AFB for now). I posted a thread looking for Marylanders, and someone pointed me to this group (THANKS!) I've been on here for a while, but can feel myself wanting to 'jump ship', so thought I'd reach out for local motivation. :D You guys are awesome - keep up the excellent work!

    Hi all. I'm living in Reston and am a public school teacher in PG county. I can use all of the support I can get since I am embarking on a long weight loss journey. Down 5lbs, and another 85 or so to go. Feel free to add me!

    Hi All- I live in the Woodbridge/Dale City, VA area. I'm a business owner and dedicated father of an awesome 4 y/o.

    My best friend is my gym partner but having as much support as possible is ideal. I've been able to accomplish almost everything that I've put my mind/dedication too, so while my goals may be lofty, I'll get it done.

    Since 1/3/14, I'm down 14 pounds and the number will keep going up.

    Adds are always cool...

    Hello...I'm Andrea and I live in Baltimore. Used MFP in the past, but this is a new profile for a fresh start. I didn't make many connections in the past....I'm hoping to now make new friends for chat, exercise and support. Please add me if you're in the Baltimore area. I look forward to sharing my journey with you.

    Hi there,

    I'm glad I found the group today. I live in Rockville, but work in Reston (hmmm so I think everyone who lives in the area just gasped. Why? You read 'Rockville... Reston' and immediately understood my commute from hell):laugh: . Anyways, I'm making a commitment to start actively tracking my meals. I've found I've gotten much success this way instead of guessing what I had for the day. Please feel free to add me so we can keep each other motivated. My diary is open to friends and I don't mind suggestions. I also like trying fitness classes so I would love to hear some suggestions or even try one with you.

    Looking forward to working hard since warm weather will be here before we know it!

    Hi! Good Morning! *waves* Living & working in Fairfax here. :) 34 yrs old, 41 lbs lost, 60 to go! Then I'll be lean & mean...ha, well, maybe not mean. :D Just found you all today. Anyone belong to "Everybody Fitness" in Fairfax that could join me as a workout partner? I work in physical therapy so my coworkers and my patients are my incentive to get healthy! Nice you meet you all!

    Hello, I'm trying to get back in to swing of things. 34 years old kind a yo-yo weight. Live in DC Cap hill/H street area could use workout buddies or folks to commiserate about hating exercising while actually exercising.
  • I just wanted to say welcome to everyone new! Hopefully we can get a more active community!
