Hello from Philadelphia!

Hello everyone!
My name is Chrissy and I just joined this site. I am married with 2 kids, ages 19 and 20. I live in Philadelphia. My favorite hobby is cooking, and my second favorite hobby is reading about cooking, lol. I love to surf the net looking for new sites, recipes or blogs.
I've worked in the food industry for several years, and I recently got my dream job of working as a cook in a private residence.
Two years ago, I decided it was time to start taking care of myself, so I changed my eating habits and chose to live a healthier life. To date, I've lost 168 lbs. I'd love to lose about 30 more. I know I'll never be a size 8, but if I could just lose 200 lbs...But even if I can't, I'm happy where I'm at.
I'm so happy to have found this site...I look forward to getting to know all of you!
Chrissy

Thank you everyone for the welcome...I noticed that with the more posts you have the cooler your title gets, lol. Kitchenelf, do you really have over 19,000 posts? I can't imagine ever thinking up enough things to say. Everyone is so friendly here that I may rack up a few posts, but usually I am very quiet, and a lurker.
