SparkMinneapolis/St. Paul Nov. Meet & Greet

Saturday, November 22, 2008

When I woke up this morning it was 24 degrees outside with a dusting of snow on the ground. Brrr... a cold day for a meet and greet but I was really excited to meet folks on the SparkMinneapolis/St. Paul team. We met at Rice Lake in Maple Grove, MN.

JODIII drove two hours to meet us. She got to show off her weight loss progress of 95 pounds gone for good. Congrats JODIII! She thanked all her Spark friends and her motivating friends near home who came along with her on the 2 hour drive. Here is a pic of JODIII holding her old pants.

Here is a pic of all of us Sparkers.

Once we were out on the trail and got the blood pumping the cold didn't seem so bad. Thank you DIRTFARMER for picking a route that would be less windy! Meeting these ladies was wonderful and very inspirational. We had a lot of fun and a great workout. I look forward to our next meet and greet event in December!

    up his cold times. I tried his suggestion to eat more catsup's and even rhubarb pie but I could not find those bread like substitute

    Woohoo - what a great story! I love seeing SP members get together offline too. By working together, we're all helping build a national movement that could change America!

    SparkCheers!

    this has been one of the best days in my life...It was great to meet all the ladies from the SparkMinneapolis/St. Paul team..I do feel bad that I couldn't make the walk but I'll for sure be ready in a month.. :-)
    I truly want the world to know how sparkpeople has tought me to track my food and track my exercise ( that I've never done) and turned my whole life around....I wouldn't change my lifestyle now for nothing in the world... I will forever be sparking everyone who comes in contact with me..
    I truly thought I was the way I was supposed to be so it didn't bother me too much till it started effecting my health...I am no longer diabetic and I can keep up with my 2 year old grandson that I'm currently raising I love you all
    THANK YOU MAX!!
