    Good morning losers! Thanks for the new thread Lisa. My goal this time is to not just have the COW floating in my head but to actually log and report...good luck to me! :laughing:

    First weigh in on the day after the snackiest day of the year for me - yikes! Well that's okay, bigger loss for the next week right? ;)

    We always have friends over and I'm planning on making some healthier snacks this year - still have to watch how much though. And DH wants those weenies wrapped in crescent rolls - those are so addicting! I'll have to step away.

    Welcome everyone!! :banana::banana:

    So do you think DH would notice if you used turkey weenies and light crescent rolls? I agree those things are addictive. :rotfl:

    You'll like the COW, jenn. I have been kind of missing it these last couple of weeks. :hippie:

    Welcome BL 9 participants!

    I thought I would do a warm up QOTD (Question of the Day) for the next couple of days while we wait for our challenge to officially start. As you chime in on our new thread -- so we know we didn't lose you -- please introduce yourself.

    If you are new to our challenge it can be a little daunting at first because we have a lot of folks signed up. Remember all you need to do is PM your starting weight to LuvBaloo on Friday 1/1. Chatting on the thread and answering the QOTD is optional but we hope that you will join us. :goodvibes

    I think that we are going to have a great challenge!

    Oops! Forgot to answer the QOTD . . . I am Lisa and the hostess and coach hostess for this challenge. You can PM me if you have any questions about the challenge or want to try coaching. I am married and have a 10 year old son. In the real world I am a real estate attorney which means I have a lot of responsibility but I have a lot of flexibility, too. It is a good thing. :goodvibes I'm looking forward to getting to know you all!

    A special welcome to my good friend Kimwim8!!


    QOTD:As you chime in on our new thread -- so we know we didn't lose you -- please introduce yourself.

    I'm Corinna, 36 year old mom of 2, husband of 1. :) I started the Biggest Loser challenge for the first time last January, right around the time I ran my first half marathon.....with 50 pounds to lose. I vowed I wanted to be smaller for the half marathon in 2010, and the Biggest Loser Challenge has definitely helped me on my way to fulfill that vow. Right now I am a little below my WW goal weight, but am struggling to decide if I want to continue my efforts to lose or be happy where I am and maintain!

    I'm so looking forward to this new challenge and am excited to get to know this amazing group!

    First time also here.

    I want to be on the Maintainer team (I think I signed up on the right place, the sticky thread?)

    I had a BC scare at 35, a friend and a few GP died. Well it motivated me to change my life. I lost 70 pounds over 2 years ago, (first time in my life at a healthy BMI) put back 5 but really need to tone it all up.

    With a BIG family beach trip coming this summer I am more determined to feel better in my own skin.

    So I decided NOT to wait until the 1st and focus on me now. (Dh's GP just has been really sick and just passed this week, me and Mom have been sick the last few weeks, kids acting up, etc...) Life is so crazy lately I am afraid I am going to forget about me and keeping my goals.

    First time for me as well. I'm Kim, single mom to a dd9 and about to be 34 in a few weeks. My weight has slowly been rising every year but now I feel like it is out of control. I have 100+ to lose so it feels a little overwhelming. I am going to try and take it 5lbs at a time and see how that works. My biggest issue is portion control so I hope if I can get that under control everything else will fall into place. I am so excited for this to start.

    I should warn everyone that I have a tendancy to share everything when I'm on a long term chat like this so I'm warning you, you will know me very well by the end of this. Some stuff you may not even want to know but I'll tell you anyway :lmao:

    Hi, I'm Tracie. I'm 35 years old. I'm a teacher by day and a writer at night. This fall I submitted my first WDW "educational" book for kids to several publishers. I'm still waiting to hear back.

    I am only five pounds overweight but those pounds have been hard for me to get ride of! I'm only 5 foot 3" so even a couple of pounds makes a huge difference on me. I am very excited to get in shape.

    Hi, my name is Eileen. I'm 28. Im the heaviest I've ever been right now and I plan on getting back to my goal weight (funny/sad thing is, that when i was at that weight, my goal weight was even lower). I sit at a desk for 9+ hours a day and it totally screws with my metabolism not to mention that by the time I get home after an hour commute, i'm so drained. But NO MORE EXCUSES!!. I have about 20lbs to lose and can't wait to start.

    I got the best cook book for christmas. the tag line is, for people who say they don't have the time to cook healthy meals. I've already cooked one recipe and it was super easy and soo good. Even my bf loved it.

    Welcome everyone. I signed in before but I haven't answered the QOTD

    I am a 54 year old, wife, mother and AP calc teacher. Dh and I have been married for over 31 years. OUr sons still live at home Ds1 is 24 and works full time at a local department store but is hoping to get a job in a research lab. Ds2 is a sophomore engineering student at Rowan University in NJ. He leaves for Africa on Sunday to work on a road in Gambia with Engineers Without Borders. (Keep your fingers crossed that his Visa comes today or tomorrow)

    My weight has been in about the same 25 pound range for the last 5 years and I really want to do something about it this year before I hit 55.

    I love all sorts of needlework, reading and just started a yoga class in Nov.

    I have been teaching at the same school for 32 years and now mostly teach AP calc classes. I love working with the top kids in the school. It has really kept me on my toes.

    I had foot surgery in June and I am still pretty careful about it but I am getting in more and more exercise each day.

    Good luck everyone.

    Hi, I'm Deb, Mother to 3 boys ages 14, 12 and 7 and wife to Chris. We've been married for 17 years. Chris is also planning to lose weight with us, but he probably won't join the official challenge. We've lost before and done fairly well keeping it off. My goal is to lose those last 10-15 lbs. I don't exercise and actually hate the thought of it. I know that I need to do that to finish with the weight loss, I'd rather give up food than exercise:rolleyes1 We have a big family trip coming up in July, a week at Disney, a week western caribbean cruise then another week in Orlando. I want to look and feel good about myself. Those pictures will certainly tell all. I am a waitress by occupation at least until the kids are grown a bit more. Until recently I was also an early morning life guard at a local aquatic center. I do love to swim, just can't seem to find the time to fit it into my day. I want to establish good habits and routines now as I would like to get back into the business world in September. I'm ready to restart my career and like it or not appearance effects job prospects.
