I found it through reading MRSBLT82's blog about the Done Girl's sexy beast challenge today. Checked out the team description and soon understood this is a good place for me. :-)

I saw it on another member's SparkPage, clicked on the team, and decided that I wanted to join. The welcome I got is amazing! So far, this is my favorite team that I've joined. The support and motivation you all provide is second to none, it seems. Here's to the best team on SparkPeople! emoticon

Just do it!

Hi all, I'm new and so happy to have found this group. I joined two other teams before I found this one but like others have said, it's the title that grabbed me. I am so DONE being the fat girl in the room or at the party or at work. I've tried Jenny Craig, WW, fad diets, diet pills blah blah blah. I just now am DONE with all of it and want to be healthy and happy and hope to do this as you all achieve your goals, too! Thanks for the warm welcome. emoticon

** Change is like walking an uphill, rocky road: you will stumble, you will fall. You may even roll downhill a bit. You will be tempted to stay down. You'll ask yourself "why bother"? But, if you pick yourself up and just keep pushing forward, eventually you'll get to the top and have a beautiful view! **

Shortly after I joined Sparkpeople, I decided to do a search for teams to be part of. I came across DBTFG and LOVED the name because I was ABSOLUTELY DONE being the fat girl. I am so thankful for all the wonderful, supportive friends I have found here!
