My name is Malissa, and I live in the Dayton, Ohio area. I have been married for 7 years and have two daughters - Avery, almost 6, and Alicia, 18 months.

I used to be a very active person. When I was growing up, I went fishing and camping nearly every weekend with my Dad. I was on the swim team for several years. I rode my bike everywhere, all over the Air Force base we were on at the time. Yet I was still chubby. I slendered down in Jr. High and went back up some in early High School, then slendered back down somewhat the summer before my senior year of High School. (Yikes!, 17 years ago!) After my Dad passed away, the pounds started creeping on. I had always been an emotional eater, but it got worse and I stopped being as active. I've gained and lost over the last several years, but always gained more than I lost. This time I am ready to do it for good!!! I am the heaviest I have ever been, and I don't want to stay here or get here again. My blood pressure is through the roof, my knees hurt, my back hurts, I always feel drained and like I don't have any energy. I am ready to change!

    Happy Wednesday! It's day 4 of week 1 of the Season of the Beast challenge. Hope you've chosen your fitness goal and are having a great week and are well on your way to earning your 50 points for our team. Woo Hoo! Please stop by the Season of the Beast team and make your Bahama Mama weight and point tracker. Please use the tracker template that I posted. I know at first glance it may look similar but the difference really makes it easier on us, your team leaders. Thanks again. Let'sake this the best season yet!

    Hi Melissa! I saw your post to the Late Sign Up thread! Once a Mama ALWAYS a Mama is our policy, so we'd LOVE to have you join us for ROCK IT. You could start today, by making a Rock IT Bahama Mama tracker, and then stopping by the Mama team, and filling out the week's one and two introduction questions, and then posting to Bahama Mama team threads. You would have to start out as unofficial, (the ONLY difference between official and unofficial is who's points count on the Rock It spread sheet) but we'd expect you to do the challenge with us each week, track your points and weight, and that way, you'll be ready to replace an official girl, if they miss 3 weigh ins. Right now, we have two girls that we might have to officially replace on Sunday. It's up to you. Some people are ONLY motivated by knowing that they are official from day one. So if that's you, and you'd rather be on another team, let us know or let DANCINGEARTHMOM know by posting to the Late SIgn Up Thread again. Otherwise we 'll be looking forward to seeing you posting on the Mama team page.
    We're ALL in this together.
