Hi Melissa! Glad you've come aboard. We need all the conservatives we can get, and this it the time we REALLY need them! May I ask what the key was to your impressive weight loss?

Oh -- I have to say that I've only flown over Ohio! My loss

Welcome, MELISSAD71, from Galion, Ohio. Let's get this state on the Right path!

Thanks sweet tea! I am ever so vigilant because I realize how easy it is to gain the weight back....way too easy!

Welcome, melissa. i came from Ohio myself, and have lived in Florida for the past several years, and i return to the Cleveland/Akron area at least twice a year to visit family.

Congratulations on your very impressive weight loss. Just remember that it can come back faster than it went off, so always be on guard.

Hi everyone! My name is Melissa and I am a married, conservative mom of one teenager and two college aged children from Maumee, Ohio. I am a full-time grad student getting ready to graduate with my second masters degree in October. I have been unemployed for the last 2 years thanks to the pitiful state of this economy. I do work part time through as a fitness consultant. Being unemployed though has had its benefits and in the past 2 years I have been able to shed over 140 lbs so now I am working on keeping it off and getting even fitter. I love working out, discussing politics, and my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I look forward to getting to know all of you better!!
