    A getting to know you thread!!:D

    I'm from Chester-le-Street in County Durham and the sun is shining today - shame I'm off to work.

    I'm 43, married with 3 children (girl of 12 and 8 year old boy/girl twins).

    I work part time for the NHS.

    Lived for 4 years in Australia where my eldest was born but missed family so came back.

    My names Anna, im 29, 30 this year woo hoo (bit excited about that) I Live in Harlow, Essex, on my own, been with my boyf for nearly 1.5 years now and very very happy. I work full time in London, and then i work at the weekends in my dads black taxi, i am currently paying off my clothes, shoes and handbags debt! I have 8 months left of working all the hours god sends and then im debt free, so im extremley excited :) I drive a hot pink and sparkly BMW which i have had for 10 years now! certainly turns heads :) I have been dieting for 3 years now, first 2.5 years on WW which I loved, and it helped me to loose 3.5 stone but I found that I was getting more and more hungry on WW so i switched to SW, found it very hard at first, to get my head round, but love it now! and im aiming to loose around another stone x

    This is a brilliant idea for a thread!

    I'm Jade, I'm eighteen, nearly nineteen. I'm studying English and Film at the moment in Manchester, but hope to do a year of teaching qualification after my degree and be a primary school teacher.
    I split my time between university, working in Subway (I make a mean sandwich!), being a teaching assistant in a local school and playing Roller Derby.
    I have been with my boyfriend for a year and a half, but he often takes a back burner to the true love of my life: Bertie, my gorgeous cat :p

    Lovely to meet you all!

    My name might well suggest that I'm called Sally but in fact I'm not :D I'm Catherine, I'm 39 and moved from the village where I'd lived for 38 years of my life all the way to Kentucky, USA, in December of 2008.

    I live with my partner, Susan, our two daughters--13 and 9 years old--three permanent cats (Tybalt, Ginger and Jeoffrey) and an ever-changing number of foster cats (we are a foster family for the local Humane Society). Presently we have a momma cat, Twinkie, and her four-week old bundles of kitten gorgeousness, Cupcake and Zinger.

    I'm a full time student at the University of Kentucky (I feel like the oldest undergraduate in town :D) studying for a double-major in English Literature and Gender/Women's Studies. Susan is a Professor in Renaissance Literature and is presently teaching creative writing whilst doing her own freelance writing (she's a stonkingly good poet) and editing. When I don't have my head stuck in a book (not very often) I knit. It keeps my hands busy which in turn stops me from eating. Sometimes it works, sometimes I put down the knitting and snack anyway :D

    I'd lost a stack of weight in England thanks to a combination of SW and an infected gall bladder but since moving to the USA I've enjoyed a food honeymoon that must now stop. The food here is fabulous, plentiful, and cheap and I am easily tempted. Thankfully, Susan is a fantastic cook and incredibly supportive of my healthy eating.

    Wow, I've rambled a LOT. Sorry about that :D

    Looking forward to getting to know other people on the forum :)

    Hello!

    I'm Laura, 32 and I live in Aberdeen with my b'f of 2 years in a wee flat right in the city centre!

    I work in an office for an oil company by day and by night/weekends I'm a photographer... I see "Dead" buildings and like to sneak into abandoned and disused places I shouldn't be in. It's great fun and my photos are featured in stuff all over the world!

    I love sugar free red bull, James Bond movies, Kate Nash & celery :D

    Hey guys :)

    This is a nice thead :D

    My names jo (who've guessed?) I'm 24 and I live in South Wales with my best friend and my boyfriend. It kind of makes the rent cheaper whilst I pay off my student overdraft from 3 years ago....Opps! lol. We're a happy household though.

    I (like someone else on here) am also an AO with the civil service. I work on a benefit enquiry line, which I mostly enjoy except for the odd grumpy person.

    In my spare time I like have adventures, bake lots of lovely things which I can only look at and go to the gym. I've also recently taken up roller derby and am learning to skate (and by god do I have the bruises to show for it)

    Hello, my name is Deryn, i am single and looking!!!, and i am living in The Gambia ,West Africa. i have lived here for 12 years and on July 4th leave to go back to Abergavenny, South Wales for good hooray!!!!!!!. I am taking with me my "daughter" Ajie. she has lived with me since she was 2 and is now 11 years old. She has been lucky enough to have been given settlement status in the UK.
    I am 60 years young and really enjoy life and am a risk taker.
    I have been doing SW on and off for years. Have lost 1 stone this time and hope to continue properly when back in the UK and able to get all the lovely goodies you can all get.
    We are presently in the process of selling all our belongings which is necessary but hard. We have found homes for all our animals but will be so sad to leave them all
    2 cats, 2 dogs, 4 guinea pigs ,and 1 parrot.
    I am considering doing fostering when we are settled back in Wales.
    Nice to meet you all xx Sending some Sunshine
