I really love to walk, so if any lady walks around the Bonita Golf course, let me know. Maybe we can meet up once a week or something like that. Thanks. Sat, 30 Jan 2010 00:07:41 EST help!! Hi everyone been signed up forever but never used this wonderful tool. Well its a new year and I am ready to go. One problem: Had surgery beginning of year, Dr stated at least 3 more wks until I can do any significant exercise. The food I am eating is what others bring me since I cant drive yet either. Any hints or words of wisdom?? The walk around the block is not quite cutting it and I feel like Im gaining just sitting around with no activity. Tue, 12 Jan 2010 13:12:39 EST What's up?

Wed, 10 Sep 2008 12:23:34 EST Looking for a goal buddy in Otay Ranch Hi. I've been in Spark People since March, and I've been really inconsistent. Getting back on track is not hard for me, but staying on track has proved unsuccessful. I'm looking for accountability relationships. My goal date is August (125 lbs). If I can come within 10 pounds of my goal by August 19th I'd be comfortable with that (currently at 153 lbs). <BR> <BR> Do you have a goal you'd like to reach, and you've backslid a bit? Let's support one another! Mon, 9 Jun 2008 15:19:54 EST Hi, new here Hi Everyone, my name is Elaina. I'm 29 years old, married with 3 children. I just recently decided to get on track and be serious about my fitness, something I have never done. My family and I joined the local YMCA and I am emensly loving the gym. Been only going for a week but I love it very much and feel motivated. Looking forward to being here and getting to know you all. I'm hoping that sparkspeople helps keep the motivation going so I can reach my fitness goals. Thu, 29 May 2008 11:42:47 EST Introducing myself.. Eastlake Area Hello Team, <BR> My name is Jessica and just moved back to Chula Vista after a 3 year hiatus. My hubby is in the Navy and my son is 4. I'm looking to get back into shape and loose a little weight that I've gained the past year. I live right by the lake and love to take walks around it.

Tue, 8 Jan 2008 17:00:16 EST Hello Chula Vista I recently moved here from the east coast and I have to say that I "Love It" here. My personal goal this year is to just get healthy and to live right in all aspects of my life. I think sometimes in people lives they just want to do the right thing and these are mine to losing weight and to stop smoking and exercise ( the later I haven't quite adjusted to as of yet but I will) is the right thing for me, so yeah, I found SparkPeople and I love it. So, if you have any questions for me hit me... Sun, 6 Jan 2008 12:13:15 EST This Group is Important Hi all. I joined Sparkpeople two months ago. I think it is a fabulous program and it has the potential to connect people locally with the same goal in mind. I mean really if there is someone there holding us accountable and losing weight with us doesn't that increase our chances of success???? Anyways, I would love this for this team to have more members and be able to connect me to people who are just like me.... Hopefully others will read this..
