Fri, 20 Jan 2012 00:22:22 EST Just Joined Live in Eastvale part of Corona -- feeling a little bit in a rut lately. Need to loose about 15 and gain more energy. Tue, 16 Aug 2011 12:15:33 EST Hi Everyone! I'm new today Hello all. Just joined today. I'm tired of failing and I hope to follow the advice completely and see some happier changes Mon, 25 Jul 2011 12:08:18 EST New to this team! I am a long time Corona resident. I am a nurse at Corona Regional. I want to lose the 30 pounds I put on the past two years and I am desperately in need of motivation. I used to live a very healthy lifestyle and ironically became horribly unhealthy when I became a nurse. I think the stress has just put me in a mental fatigue and it's easier to just gain weight. But I can't live like this forever, so I'm trying to break out of my rut!! Tue, 12 Jul 2011 13:11:21 EST HI Everyone! I'm new! HELP!!! Hi! My name is Brigitte and I am in the South Corona area (by Trilogy). I just signed up and I am throughly confused! I've never been on a diet or any kind of program before. Is there anyone who can team up with me and show me the way to do things on here? I workout on my elliptical 5 days a week for 1 hour/day. I have been doing this for 6 weeks. I have not lost 1 pound! I'm guessing that it's my diet, but I'm a very picky eater and to be perfectly honest, the meal plans are very confusing t...

Wed, 25 May 2011 00:29:53 EST In Corona, No time for the gym! Hello everyone, I am new to the site and to the team. I am a mom who is always on the go.

This will be my fifth year. It is on June 26. Maybe the Corona Sparkers could make a goal to become part of it. It is 24 hours of someone on your team walking. Wed, 17 Feb 2010 18:05:31 EST fitness tracker question Hi, I have just joined and am getting my workout plans set up. I put in my own choice of exercises into the strength building. It made a good list, but it does not show the little empty box that I use to check off the exercise when I have done it. How do I get that to show so I can find out how many calories I am burning? Also, the Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday schedule I chose is not showing at the top of the chart. How can I get that back? Tue, 9 Feb 2010 18:13:55 EST I just joined! I just joined and am excited! I need to get healthy - that's the main thing. Mon, 8 Feb 2010 14:28:23 EST I am going to win in 2010 Hi fellow Corona members. I just joined and am excited about reaching my goal and connecting with others for support. I look forward to a wonderful journey. Mon, 18 Jan 2010 17:36:08 EST Ready to Rock!

I would love to get in touch with beginners, like myself. Wed, 13 Jan 2010 21:12:45 EST Hi Hello-I'm new to spark. A friend recommend it and so far I really like it. My weight is pretty much out of control, and over eating is my biggest problem. I am hoping this really gets me going on the right path. I would like to have someone weigh me once a week, but not a friend. Someone not a afraid to criticize me. Anyone know a spark group like that?

Sun, 21 Jun 2009 10:01:33 EST Coffee Anyone? From what I can see there are about 5 or 6 Corona Sparkers who regularly post here.

Just a thought...cuz I would like to meet up with my fellow Corona Sparkers! Sat, 20 Jun 2009 20:12:16 EST A GREAT (inexpensive) Personal Trainer in Corona.. Hi Corona Sparkers....My husband's friend is a personal trainer in Corona off Sixth Street near Lincoln at a small "gym". He is very nice, inexpensive,no contracts and really knows his stuff.
