6 Women on 1 Mission - Loose Weight!

   I realized as I was thinking about what my goals are for 2012, that I, like so many others want to loose weight in this new year.  Every year I say I would like to loose a few pounds but it never seems to quite go like I had planned, I suppose it's a lot like other New Year's goals and resolutions, sound great one day and then are completely forgotten the next.  While discussing this phenomenon with my family and friends, we came up with a way to help each other stay on track and shed those unwanted pounds. 
    There are 6 women who will be completing this 2 month challenge. We are all at completely different fitness levels, have completely different fitness goals for our future,  but have one current goal - to loose weight.  So in order to be the moral support for each other, we are going to hold each other accountable, and even taking it one step farther and bringing it to the bloggin world for support and encouragement!  To provide that extra support we have all downloaded the myfitnesspal app, which can track our daily calories as well as your exercise.  It also allows us to connect with each other similar to facebook and give each other encouragement and to show our progress. 

   I'd now like to introduce you to the 6 participants!  For the sake on anonimity, since weight is such a sensitive issue, I have changed their names and the before pictures will be without their faces.  Please show your support for these 6 women as we tackle our weightloss goals!
