    Hey all. I'm Avonie originally from Montego Bay, Jamaica via Toronto, Canada. I now live in Springdale, MD. No commuting dramas here because I work from home...albeit an often dreary basement. The wifi does grant me some reprieve. I recommitted to MFP on Dec. 2, 2011 and know now that logging my food and exercise is only half the journey. Equally important is reaching out to like minded folks to give and get support. Very happy to have made this connection.

    Hello everyone!! I've been on MFP for a while, but am excited to find a group of local people who share my goal for weight loss!

    My name is Robin, and I am a 28 year old mother of one. I am married to my best friend, and he is the reason that I am currently living in Clinton, MD as I was born in raised in small town Culpeper, Va. A country girl at heart, ya'll know this traffic and excess of people is KILLING me!!!!! I miss home and find it difficult to adapt to the city at times, but I look forward to getting to know all of you as we journey towards our healthier, happier, and SMALLER selves.

    Greetings all,
    This is my first time here, not the first time on the weight roller coaster. Living in this area for 2 years now...originally from Florida. The problem is loss of motivation from time to time, hoping this is gonna be the last time.
    Grad student in legal studies & will be joining the Biggest Loser challenge at my school to help me out. I look forward to additional challenges from the group.
    Goal of 80lbs to lose!!

    A bunch of the earlier members probably already know me, but we are growing a lot so I thought I would say hi again. Im glad to see so many DMV people. My name is Greg, and I live in Rockville, MD. I enjoy hiking, cycling, rafting, kayaking, climbing but I have let myself get to the point where my weight makes it hard to do most of the things I love doing.

    Hi everybody! I just joined the group today. I'm in Capitol Heights, MD.

    Looking to lose between 35 and 50 pounds. Man, that would be awesome. :smile:

    Food: So far, I've been tracking my food since January 31st, 2012 and have been doing pretty well with staying under 1,500 calories (most days, anyway).
    Fitness: I've gone interval walking/running a couple of times (last Sunday and yesterday), and my first fitness goal is to work my way up to running a mile and being alive at the end of it.

    So many new faces! HELLO EVERYONE!!

    as a group, we struggle to keep up with postings, so if you ask a question and don't get a response right away, do not fret! It's not that we dont want to help, just some of us forget to check here more than 1-2 times per week (<raises hand> guilty party right here)

    I'm so happy to see you all here!
