Hey guys! I'm Lauren, 25, teacher, mom and getting married in June 2009. We've been engaged for a year. He's much older-36, and this is his 3rd marriage too-and my first. I'm from Philly, but now live in Lancaster county-about 1 1/2 hour away. Someone else said their from philly too-where abouts?

I used to compete in Irish dancing since I was about 5, until I graduated college. That kept me in shape, though I've always really hated my body. I'm really athletically built, so I have these huge muscles that if I don't maintain with constant work, get really flappy. Gross. WHen I went to college I joined the women's rugby team. I was hot! And running probably about 20+ miles a week.
Then I became a teacher, and mom, and fat.
My biggest goal is to run a 5K. You guys inspire me! I'm starting to run hard again, but it just seems like so much-never have been a runner-I just did it b/c I had to.

Short term goals:
1/5/2009-170
1/19/2009-165
1/31/2009-163

It is pretty neat! I can steal all the food I want!! muahahaha!!!

It's kind of lonely right now cuz I am upstairs all by myself, since my sisters and parents just moved down there a few months ago. All of used to live on the second floor together, but after my grandma passed away and my grandfather moved out they decided to move down and then me and Tony could have the second floor.

Well I'm glad I'm not the only nut with too many animals! I have a bunny and a dog and a kitten....they all get along well enough aside from a little chasing and head bopping now and then (the cat to the rabbit!) It makes for a crowded apartment though!!!

Welcome to the team!

Nice to meet you too!
I like the WII alot, Mario cart is soo fun! Grand theft is my fiancÚs' favorite game, I like the less realistic ones.
Our one dog Bruno, siberian husky he stays outside which I hate, but he won't come in and it's probably better that way, he would eat the cat's FOR SURE!!

Our cats brother and sister out of the same litter, Neo and Dot, fight with eachother more than they do our Puppy, Angel. She is a Pomapoo and Dot pretty much ignores her, but Neo and Angel are buddies they play and cuddle like they are the ones that are related!Neo the male cat actually weighs 7 more pounds than Angel, so he's not scared! It's pretty cute! Pic's on my page!

I would have a billion cats and dogs if I was allowed or could afford it! I love them!

The present is what slips by us while we're pondering the past and worrying about the future!!

Take Care
Danielle!

Well, two are from shelters. My baby, Fiona, is an Italian Greyhound/Rat Terrier mix, so 10 lbs and long legs. And Trouble is a Yellow/Lab Basset Hound mix. He looks just like a lab until he stands up and you see his short stubby legs. :) Bruiser, the King of the house, is a Chihuahua.

Challenges:

Challenge 1 = 15 lbs by Halloween - 224.6

Hello all,

My name is Dana, my finance's name is Mark. I am 36 and he is 46 and this will be my first and his third, but he hates to discuss it. But when we met, we both knew that we were the soul mate match to each other. We met in December 2007 and got engaged 2/16/08. He didn't want to remarry ever again and his family was shocked when we said we were getting married. We both do not have children, but we have three adorable dogs, Fiona (my baby), Bruiser (King of the house) and Trouble (name speaks for itself).
