I am a middle aged mom/wife who "woke up" one day only to realize that I am overweight. Our 14 year old son, who I am homeschooling, is helping me to get back in shape without too much teasing ;)
I will love loosing weight and getting back in shape.
Water, water, water, I will drink water.
Walk, walk, walk, I will walk.
No, no, no to mindless eating.
I am always looking for walking / workout buddies. Have shoes, will travel. Science Hill's track, ETSU, Linear Trail in Erwin, Winged Deer Park, you name it, let's do it!

Hi JamJen - I am in Kingsport, but I know where Flagpond is and I have to say you are lucky to live in a beautiful spot! We go over the mountain practically every time we travel (except to Knoxville!) and can remember when the 4-lane was only 2 lanes but we still passed Flagpond. Always loved the name.
I am about 2 weeks in Spark now and doing better at it all the time. Not perfect, but that does not bother me. I've always been a type B, maybe that is why I've tolerated the weight gain over the years.
So have a wonderful day and let's stay in touch!
