Hi, my name is Kim and the creator of this great weight loss tool. I'm a wife of 27 years, mom of 4 (15 to 26) and a oncology research RN.

Lots and lots of stress last year and hoping that most if it is behind me. I started working full time in November like a normal person and trying to find balance with working and fitting in some exercise.

Welcome to our great group of people and welcome back all the regulars.

    Yo! I need this back. I've really slacked off last two weeks due to cyst pain (yep 2 new ones the left ovary this time Kim *insert swearing) then my mental health took another dive. I really need to keep that exercise up. Back at it tomorrow!

    Hi I'm Lillie, I'm married to my high school sweetheart (22 years this year!) We have 2 beautiful daughters who are 19 and 21. Since June of last year I have lost 123 lbs. I love being a part of a challenge as it motivates me to continue on my weight loss journey. My goal is get to a healthy weight, some where below the 200 mark, which means I still have 93 lbs to go according to my bathroom scale this morning. Good luck to everyone!

    Hmmm, not sure why you can't join. It's open to public. I will have to fiddle with it some more.

    I'm Sylvia, I'm 31 and a mother to two kids, 6 and 3. I'm a stay at home mom who also homeschools so my days are pretty jam packed. I just took a home job offer that I will be starting soon too. Fitting everything in can be difficult and I also struggle with moving enough throughout the day. (My job is sitting, homeschool is sitting... ugh) Anyway, I've lost around 55lbs but still have 50lbs to go and keep teeter tottering between the same numbers. I love this challenge because it pushes me and I always see the scale drop. I bought a more dependable scale a couple weeks ago so that should really help me this time around (I noticed last challenge my scale kept going up and down considerably and it was very inconsistent) Anyway, hey everyone!! Let's do this!

    Alright I was able to accept the invite!
    Lauren. 27, this is my third challenge. I work at a desk job that I love but it definitely makes me stagnant!
    I've had a depressingly impressive weight gain the last month and its my goal to lose it in this challenge!

    Hi! My name is Amanda! I am married to my high school sweatshirt also! Will be married for 15 years in June! We have 3 great kids 14, 12, 10 two boys and one girl! They keep us on our toes with sports mainly wrestling and basketball. I am a RN on a medical surgical floor. I love being a nurse! My goal for now is to get down to 145 and then go from there. I am 5ft on a good day! Every time I have started in the past I also would make my goal around 125 and that always seemed so far away so that is why I chose a smaller goal! Can't wait to get started with all of you!
