Hello everyone!
1. I'm 24 and a full time student.
2. My fiance and I got engaged in September but are just now starting to do some planning (we're going to check out our first venue today!).
3. We have an Olde English Bulldogge named Boomer who is the love of our lives.
4. Our favorite season is Fall, we met in Fall, got engaged in Fall, are getting married in Fall and having a Fall themed wedding.
5. We're both from Maine, still live in Maine and absolutely love it.
6. My fiance is the kindest person I've ever met.
7. I've been on Sparkpeople before under different screen names and I know it works, I just have a problem with commitment, so I'm trying it again and hoping it will stick now that I have a definite goal.
8. I want to lose weight for the wedding, but also for general health. We are not going to be young forever and I want to avoid the problems that come with obesity.

Looking forward to getting to know you all! Congratulations on your engagements and good luck!

Hey everyone! My name is Melissa!

1) I am 23 years old (and so is my fiancee)
2) I live in North Carolina- but not with Joshua- but we are in the process of house shopping :-)
3) I work as an email customer support adviser for the iTunes Store
4) I started my weight loss journey on May 1st, 2012 and have lost 60lbs so far :-)
5) My goal weight is 150lbs- my starting weight was 330 but I'm down to 270 now.
6) I am a huge animal lover- I have 9 dogs.
7) I am a huge Zumba enthusiast- one of my long term goals is to become a licensed Zumba instructor

About Joshua~
1) He is a Valentine's Day baby so he expects to be spoiled on that day ha
2) He is so supportive of my journey to a new me- but he done told me if I get too skinny (as he prefers a girl with "some meat") he's gonna start injecting me with hot fudge lol
3) He owns his own lawn and landscaping business

Random facts about us:
1) We will be together 5 years (officially) in December - but we casually dated on and off starting in May 2007, but we didn't become "official" until December 2007
2) We met our freshman year in high school- but started noticing each other (and dating) our senior year
3) He proposed this past May and the wedding date (right now) is June 25th, 2015. (He picked the date as it symbolizes the date (July 25th, 2007) I first told him that I loved him)

1- I live in North Carolina with my fiance and our 2 dogs (a mini dachshund and an Australian Shepherd)
2- I am a special education teacher in an elementary school
3- I'm originally from Park City, Utah and I miss it like crazy
4- I have had an issue with my weight since I was in middle school
5- Since November, I'm slowly but steadily lost 20+ pounds (I say 20+ because I was too afraid to look at the scale when I did my first weigh-in with my trainer)
6- I have the most perfect wedding dress, and right now, it fits like a glove. But I want it taken in :)
7- I hate the phrase "weight loss." I use "fat loss" as often as I can. I don't really care about the number on the scale....I care about the number that tells me my body mass index.

and one more for the hell of it: 8- Skinny girls look good in clothes. Fit girls look good naked. I want to look good naked.

My name is Jenn
I am 23 years old
I am happily engaged and living with my fiancé (there's no wedding to plan at this point, as we can't afford one, but I still like to hear about what others are doing so I have ideas for my own wedding if and when we can have one)
I have no kids; I have a cat, though
I want to feel comfortable in my own skin again (and my clothes; I've been having to wear my fiancé's bottoms lately)
I started at 168.5lbs, I'm now 166ish, and 5'5"
My end goal is 135lbs
My mini goal is 150 lbs by my next birthday, 2/19
I love the sedentary lifestyle and sweets way too much. This was fine through my whole childhood, but now my metabolism can't handle it anymore, so I need to figure out how to get back to a weight I'm happy with and stay there, without giving up all sweets and sitting, just some of them :)
About a month ago, I started biking to and from school 4 days a week (mostly uphill to school, mostly downhill from) and I've lost about 2 lbs. Not as much as I had hoped, but at least it's going in the right direction, I guess. I think I'm going to need help to reach my goal.

1. I love to be in the kitchen. I graduated from Le Cordon Bleu 3 years ago, and I simply love to eat!
2. I'm a detail junky. This is making the wedding really stressfull to plan.
3. I secretly love anything fantasy related.
4. I LOVE microbrews. Finding a hole in the wall brewery that only the locals know about is like Christmas Day.
5. My family is incredibly important to me.
6. I'm really afraid that I got my mothers genes, and my weight is going to be a struggle my whole life. Probably one reason why I'm so carefull now.
7. In the 3 years I was in culinary school I gained 30#. After coming back home to Colorado, I lost is all again in 1 year.

1. My fiance has always supported my wildest dreams, including moving to Arizona to go to school with no idea where we were going to live or work.
2. He is incredibly thoughtfull. He remembers conversations that we had 5 years ago (like when I told him to propose @ a hockey game), remembers my favorite color, even though it manages to change every 3 months or so and not yet struck out on any gift i.e. Christmas, Valentine's, anniversaries.
3. He loves me no matter how crazy I get.

1. I just graduated from college.
2. I'm not sure what I want to do with my life now that college is over.
3. I want to lose 15 pounds and be back to my pre-college weight of 145.
4. I have a small dog that is a mutt/jack russell. His name is Snap, and I want 2 more dogs to name Crackle and Pop.
5. I love everything about food! My degree was in Food Science.
6. I don't want a wedding, but I want to look good in my honeymoon pictures.
7. I love to read books. The last book I read was based on the Greek myth of Alcestus.

1. He is obsessed with turtles and also with Superman, but not as obsessed as my brother-in-law is with Transformers.
2. He actually stood-up for me when his mother was being rude to/about me.
3. He has a 20 month old son that only gets to visit him every other weekend. He would do anything for his son.

Here it goes:

1) I live in upstate NY
2) I have two dogs (pit/lab mix and a long-haired chihuahua) and two step-kitties
3) I am a licensed veterinary technician going on 8 years
4) I don't have my engagement ring yet because I'm waiting for a jeweler to find me a black diamond (I just HAD to be difficult it seems - but it will look gorgeous in 14k white gold)
5) I love to read (fantasy) - my favorite authors so far are Terry Goodkind for his 'Sword of Truth' series and Brandon Sanderson's 'Elantris' and 'Warbreaker'
6) I have two tattoo's and 7 piercings
7) I play the violin, albeit not perfectly, but it is relaxing and enjoyable.
8) When I see how wonderful my fiancé is with his kitties, I can't help picturing him cuddling with a baby in the same way
9) My fiancé is older than I am by 14 years, but I prefer it that way. I was never one for guys my own age!
10) My fiancé is a bike-enthusiast. He actually got me riding one last summer, though it was a bit rocky at first. He bought me a Specialized and now I can't wait for this winter weather to go away so I can get back to the trails.

I'll start us off:

1. I live in Ontario, Canada with my fiancé and cat
2. I am a certified K-6 teacher, but work as a receptionist (not by choice – just the job market right now!). I would ideally teach Grade 4 or 5, but love working with kids, no matter the age or ability!
3. I fully intend to get married in the Caribbean in Spring 2012 with a small group of people – and fully intend to implement a rule of “if you’re not on the invite list, don’t show up!”….and am looking forward to the resulting face-offs with certain aunts.
4. I am a planner to a fault. I find it very difficult to just jump into something spontaneously. Even as a child, I would stand back and watch other children playing to make sure I knew what was going on before deciding to join. This has been a bit of an issue of late because I’m trying to convince myself to quit my job and start supply teaching (which has no security or stable hours or pay).
5. I have 2 tattoos.
6. I purchase almost every book I want to read (unless I can borrow it from someone over and over again) because I always read my favourites over and over again. I’m pretty sure I’ve read the entire Harry Potter series more than 6 times.
7. I can watch Empire Records and Robin Hood: Men In Tights over and over again. And recite most lines.
8. My fiancé’s passions are philosophy and canoeing/camping…so we take a 5-day canoe trip every summer and have lots of thought-provoking conversations (note: I am not a camper by choice; ergo, he does all the work!)
9. My fiancé is ridiculously easy going and easy to get along with. Within minutes of meeting someone new, that person will often try to make plans to hang out with him again soon (which can sometimes get my back up if it’s a single girl; but he doesn’t make plans with them unless it’s in a big group setting and introducing her to his fiancée first;)). He’s also letting me call most of the shots with our wedding, as long as he’s kept in the loop.
10. My fiancé is amazing with kids. He used to work at a summer camp in Algonquin (a national park in Ontario) and take cabins of campers on canoe trips. He’s won over the hearts of my nieces, and I’m pretty sure he’s one of his niece’s favourite people. He’s not afraid to get silly and never gets bored doing the same things over and over again. I love watching him interact with kids!

Hi ladies and gents,

Thought I'd create a new thread for introductions so we could get to know our teammates a little better! emoticon So here's the deal. Post 7 things about yourself - interesting facts, favourite activities, etc., etc. and 3 things about your fiance/e that you love and find interesting!
