My name is Elisabeth, and I am 26 years old, 5'7" and 210.4 lbs as of this morning! I seriously need a goal, and I need others to help me stay accountable! I would love to lose just 2 pounds a week so this is very doable! I will be weighing in on Wednesdays! I know it seems crazy to begin this before Christmas, but I have to start now! I can't go another couple of weeks until January 1st!

A little about me:
I am married to an amazing man, and we have an 18 month old daughter!
Occupation: I am an R.N. per diem in a surgery center, but I mostly am able to stay home with my sweet baby!
Favorite Color: Green
Favorite Store to shop in: J Crew, Anthropologie and Target of course! ;)
Favorite Hobbies: kayaking, cooking, sewing, photography, traveling!
An interesting fact: My husband and I lived in Africa for 3 months back in 2012!

Your turn! Ladies, feel free to add me! Let's do this!

Svelte by Spring is the name of our group! ;)

    Count me in! I have been trying to do this solo for about 4 months and have only lost about 4 pounds. A pound a month is going to take forever. I need a place to "report".

    I'm 5'3" - 160 lbs
    Goal - 130 lbs (more would be great, 130 seems realistic)
    I'm 45 years old, married with two kids (5 and 7). I get up every day to exercise at 4am (crazy!!) I know exercise is not my problem - it's diet. And not that I eat bad food (don't do fast food, chips, etc) , just not the RIGHT food. And maybe too much wine. ;)

    20 lbs by March would be fantastic!!! Let's do this! Add me in!

    lmcginley, so nice to meet you! SO cool you work with solar products!! That sounds super interesting enough to me!! In Africa we were working with a missions organization and living at an orphanage and doing evangelical and medical outreaches! It was awesome! So glad you are joining us!!

    That's awesome! I worked with a sustainable development group in college doing green/sustainable agriculture in Nicaragua but it wasn't for as long! Sounds like great work you did!

    Occupation: I work at Marie Callenders... Behind the pie case.
    Favorite color: Orange.
    Favorite store: I don't shop often so I don't exactly have a favorite! If I do go shopping I make it to a few stores.
    Hobbies: Reading, school, computer games.
    An interesting fact: I am a cheerleader and can do flips! My coach doesn't put me in anything so I sit every day at practice, so I am not getting much exercise.

    Hi!! Can I join? I'm looking for more friends on this app. I am 21 years old, 5'8 and I weigh 160 pounds. I looked and felt my best back when I weighed 135 pounds. I would live to weigh 140-45! I am an art student and my downfall is food! I just love all kinds of food.
    Please add me!

    I'm 30 y/o, 5'5'' and weigh 152.7#
    Also work as an RN, nurse manager (go back to work full time Jan 4th) :( I will miss my little guy

    I'd like to join! I'm 35 years old, 5'10" and 167. 20 pounds may be a little ambitious for me (I haven't been under 155 since I was 18, and that was pretty dang skinny at my height), but I could use the motivation! A little about me- my husband and I have been married for nine years and are parents to a sweet six-year-old boy, and I work full-time in city management. Food, all of the food, is my weakness! Fortunately, I also get up at 4 a.m. to get my workouts in. I loooooooove going to my barre class early in the morning, and I also run (starting training for marathon #3 in January!)
