So far I love this group. Everyone is really encouraging and helpful. But I'd like to know a little bit more about ya'll as the awesome ladies you are. I'll start. Right now I'm a stay at home mom of 2 young kids, 20 months and 5. I love to read, I'm kind of nerdy. I'm stuck on Doctor Who right now. I love outdoor activities as well as just relaxing with the family. I'm trying to my crafty but its not going so well atm. So thats me in a nutshell :)

I am also a SAHM.  I have 3 kids, 7, 6, and 2.  I love to read too, but I don't make it a priority anymore :(  I love crime dramas, books and tv.  I love to be outside playing with my kids.  I love playing board games with them too.  I go through spurts of having to crochet and then I won't do it for months at a time.  I love to cook/bake new and healthy things.  I love to workout because when I don't my legs get sore and stiff since breaking them in a car accident 2 years ago (1 leg very bad, the other not nearly as bad).  I love it when my kids join in or ask if we can go for a walk.  I am also pretty cheap, so I love to shop garage sales, thrift, clearance, etc.

Stay at home momma also. My name is Jess, and I have two girls, 5 & 15 months. I live in beautiful so cal :) married to William. I love greys anatomy, southland, sons, army wives, Nashville, and sandal. I've gotten really crafty since my dd1 started school. I love it. I enjoy watching sports. I'm very outspoken, blunt on things and strong headed. People can't handle me at times. I mean well and have the best intentions. I love to laugh and especially listen to people's problems. Family is my first priority. That's pretty much it :)

I'm three weeks into my weight loss journey and i have lost 13.5lbs :)

Hi there! 

I'm Claire. I'm married to my HS sweetheart Heath and we've been together for almost 22 years and married for 17 years. We have 2 girls- Lilly and Karli. Lilly is 7.5, adopted from China, and absolutely perfect in every way... Karli is 4, our little shock/surprise, and is a daredevil that gets into more trouble than her sister has ever contemplated in the past 6 years home. LOL... I am currently a SAHM after leaving my Chef career behind to be a mom to Lilly-bug, but I will be re-entering the workforce soon. 

fI do love to read ( Nora Roberts is my fave author), cook/bake, and run. I'm a slight fitness fanatic so I am studying for my Personal Trainer Certifications right now.

i'm a f/t working mom.  i'm a self-employed IT consultant which basically means i get to geek out every day :).

i have a 4yo dd and a wonderful husband who, like me, loves being healthy and active.

i started my journey jan 1, 2012 and have never looked back.  i went from a size 8/10 pants and M/L shirt/dress size to a size 2 pants and xs shirt/dress size.  it was freaking hard work but i stayed strong, remained patient and now i'm totally kicking it out of the park.  where i used to shy away from fitness challenge, i'm all about COME AT ME, BRO!  GIMME EVERYTHING YOU GOT!  LOL.  in september, i'll be doing the tough mudder race with 14 of my friends and we're all so excited!  i workout every morning at 5am, 6x/week.  lifting is my favorite and my focus; i only do cardio because i know i have to but i could lift all day!

on my off time i love reading, blogging and just doing different fitness challenges.  we're always out and about every weekend and spend very little time indoors.

I am currently not working,  been with hubby 21 yrs,  we have a 19 yr old daughter and a 16 (almost 17) yr old son.

We move a lot- have lived in 7 states -some of them multiple times.  We are in New Mexico now (for the 2nd time) but will probably end up either back in Utah (ugh) or Az again in the next year or two.  I started belly dance classes about 4 -5 yrs ago, and have taken them off and on since (when I can find and afford them). It's something my daughter and I like to do together :)

I like movies, music- and LOVE concerts, I draw and sew here and there when the mood strikes me. I have gone to both cosmetology and nail tech school ( not using either though *as work* for various and frustrating reasons).   I also LOVE to visit Las Vegas! even though I don't gamble much and don't drink much either- I love the lights, the hotels and jsut being there :)

and...sparkly things.  Love sparkly things!

Hi! I'm Leslie, I work part-time in the mornings. I have 3 kids: 14, 10 and 2. Hubby and I are college sweethearts and have been together 19 years...married for almost 16 years.
I started my weightloss journey in Jan 2012, and lost 50 lbs in 6 months. I then gained about 12 or so lbs back during the holidays. Still working on losing that...7 lbs to go and then I'd love to lose about 10 more. I love running, lifting and spinning. I work out 5-6 days per week and am very active with my kids :)
