Mon, 2 Dec 2013 09:53:42 EST Anyone Participating and Looking for Penpal? I just signed up for this team and wondered if there is anyone that would be interested in being a pen pal. The posts seem older and I don't know if those people are still on the team/looking for a pen pal or whatever. I live in metro Detroit. I've had many pen pals over the years and always enjoyed it. Tue, 1 Oct 2013 09:35:18 EST New to the Team My name is Ronda, and I live in Deville, Louisiana (center of state). I am a retired/disabled middle school computer teacher. I have multiple sclerosis. For so long I have been in poor health and using that as an excuse. No more!! I finally woke up on May 20 and decided to do something about it.

Thu, 18 Apr 2013 21:39:40 EST Anyone still looking for a penpal? Let me know and we can chat a bit! Sat, 1 Dec 2012 00:05:55 EST Wow! Was surprised to find a penpal team, but I guess SP thinks of everything. I'm 50, married, mom of two adult children who still live at home, and 'mom' to 3 cats. Writing to my 40+ snailmail pals is what helps keep me sane, along with occasional journaling. Also into fictional reading. <BR> <BR> Becca <BR> <BR> Fri, 9 Nov 2012 17:08:44 EST Hello Everybody! Hello. I'm Vinia from Michigan. I'm 31, I've never been married, but currently have a boyfriend, and I have no kids. I've been overweight since I was 8 years old and i'm just looking to change that. My highest weight was back in 2006 when I was at 283. I think my last weight in was 209. So i'm just hoping to find support and maybe speed up the process a little. I'm really looking forward being 130 lbs. Fri, 22 Jun 2012 09:50:45 EST Newbie from TN Hello! My name is Karen and I'm a Michigan Native who lives near Nashville, TN.
