My name is Bonita! I'm 23 and I live in Utah. I graduated high school weighing 120lbs. And in these past few years my weight has gone up up up! Well I attribute it to moving out of the parents house, going to college, meeting the love of my life and being happy at 3am eating ice cream. But also, I am overweight because I didn't do anything to stop myself from ballooning. My boyfriend still loves me, i'm still in school and I'm still fat. Its not everything around me. It's just me. <BR> ... Sun, 30 Nov 2008 19:16:16 EST Hi Glam Girls! My name is Shannon and I'm pretty new to SP. It's been about a week or so now.

Losing 5-10% body fat will do wonders for us all. Wouldn't it feel so great to have to buy new clothes for the fall or better yet for some returning to school with a slimmer bodies? The Challenge will start today and end on the last day of summer08! We'll do weekly weigh ins on Sundays for those who are interested. Tue, 17 Jun 2008 23:23:42 EST
