I am looking forward to talking with like minded people in the area! Sun, 1 Aug 2010 12:46:26 EST Making the leap I'm to the point that I'm ready to start doing something to lose the weight rather than just wishing it away! I have two sons, ages 3 and 15 months. After the first baby I lost all the pregnancy weight after four months without even trying, but after the 2nd I'm still 10 lbs. over after more than a year. Plus I already had at least 13 lbs to lose on top of that. So, it's time. I've stopped breastfeeding so no more excuses. Thu, 10 Jun 2010 01:05:26 EST Want to train for a triathlon???

I do drink alot of water, but if Im screwing up my food plan by adding the sugar free this or that I want to know. Will appreciate anyones input. Thanks, Your Spark Friend, Denise Wed, 29 Jul 2009 23:39:49 EST Introduction Hello, <BR> I joined this group some time ago; however, have not participated much on Spark people. I started making life style changes when I hit 300 pounds. I lost approximately 90 pounds but get stuck each time I near 200. I say each time because every time I get close to that weight, I fall off of my plan and do not get back on until I have gained 20 -25 pounds. So here I am, again. I am doing something different this time; asking for help. I am relatively new to the area and would...

Mon, 22 Jun 2009 16:37:22 EST Hi There! I am Michele, am 37 1/2 (turning 38 next Tuesday), and I joined Sparkpeople end of May. <BR> I saw a female physician (Dr. Birdie) talk about using Sparkpeople on "Good Morning America" around the time I joined. I saw her 'before & after' photos and thought "if she can do it, I can do it!" So here I am! <BR> I have had several attempts at weight loss over a very long while! I suffer with Type 1 Diabetes (since age 8), plus most recently diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis (2006). So the m... Mon, 22 Jun 2009 14:29:39 EST What did you do today? What was your day like - normal / routine, or did you do something special - tell us about it. If it was a new venue (restaurant, shop, park) let us know - maybe us fremont sparkers would enjoy it also..... <BR> <BR> Today for me is Glen's bday (fiance). So, I will most likely be taking him to Black Angus (he's a meat guy). Let me know if anyone has other suggestions. Oh, and I bought him a requested hockey stick (couldn't find a Lindros curve though). Wed, 17 Jun 2009 15:39:29 EST What are your favorites? Favorite new food, favorite exercise, favorite habit, favorite music??? <BR> <BR> Me - I am learning to love spinach and blackberries! And when I don't run on a scheduled day I am cranky. But the go-to favorite exercise - I would do EVERY day if I could would be ice hockey, and then soccer (I did this for a month or two indoor a few years ago and loved it). Wed, 17 Jun 2009 15:36:27 EST What motivates you? Come in and tell us what motivates you? Kids, a new goodie, community support ???

Mon, 15 Jun 2009 16:23:35 EST Anyone else frustrated? I know its a slow process. I've only been at this 3 weeks today. But when I'm being really good and gain a pound....late last night I ate Hershey kisses and bagel chips in a "who cares pissy fit" I felt sick after (literally). Couldn't sleep. This morning I am back on track and kinda happy I did what I did last night... just proves you ARE what you eat... I ate CRAP and felt like it.

Sat, 23 May 2009 00:39:39 EST Some Dieting Tips I liked this from an email I got from a friend. <BR> <BR> A 2004 study by the Centers for Disease Control showed Americans are eating much more than we did 30 years ago. Some blame the overproduction of processed foods. Others blame the diets themselves, citing a tendency for people to overeat the foods they are allowed to consume. <BR> <BR> So now that we've identified the problem, what's the solution? Here are five tips, time-tested and medically sound, all geared towards helping you to p... Tue, 19 May 2009 11:01:16 EST Week Challenge May 18 - May 25th I am reposting a challenge that my other team is doing. My other team just replies in the challenge topic I have created, and it is self tracking. For those new to the site, you can add cardio on the fitness tracker, and you can track your food on the nutrition tracker. You can also search the SparkTeam website to see what foods qualify as whole grains (mostly brown rice, oatmeal, bread with whole wheat flour as the first ingredient, whole wheat pasta, etc). Here goes - Each day you get t... Tue, 19 May 2009 01:27:22 EST Do we have a Team Leader?

Mon, 18 May 2009 16:57:26 EST Workout places in Fremont -- any recommen dations? 15 extra pounds came out of nowhere and attached itself to my butt! Ok, actually I ate and "lazied" my way to this state, but am currently taking steps to the unwanted pounds. I'm now taking a couple of PE classes at Ohlone but want to add to this activity by going to a local gym -- any recommendations? I'd love to hear what people think about places like Curves, Planet Fitness, Bally, 24 Hour, etc. I'm not working now so cost is a big consideration. All advice appreciated.

It is a good workout for your buns & thighs!! I walk at Mission Peak every weekday morning starting about 8:40. I will be patient if you can only make it to the first bench at first, but in a few weeks time I'm sure you will be able to go to the 2nd & 3rd benches. Unfortunately I do not have the time to go all the way to the top on a daily basis. Mission Peak is an off...

It's wonderful to have a motivational support while reaching for weightloss goals. I know that for me, I do so much better when I make fitness something I think a lot about. <BR> <BR> I have the Body for Life book - i didn't read it or follow it for very long and it's dusty... but he says a great phrase: <BR> <BR> Fail to plan and you plan to fail. It fits with just about everything, from making s... Wed, 9 Jul 2008 12:58:39 EST Why doesn't anyone ever post on this Forum, Not to sound like a complainer but we have over 500 members and no one ever posts on this forum. <BR> <BR> I have responded to at least 3 different topics and have tried to encourage some of the members and have never gotten a response. <BR> <BR> Where's the Fremont Spirit? <BR> <BR> It would be great to communicate with other people from my town. <BR> <BR> Anyone interested? Let me know. Fri, 23 May 2008 19:00:26 EST New here Hey everyone I am new here and live/work in Fremont. Mon, 12 May 2008 20:28:04 EST Looking for support buddies Hi fremonters! I just joined yesterday and I am very excited. I am a mom of 2 and have 50+ lbs to lose! My first goal is to lose 10-15lbs by mid june for my mexico vacation. Hopefully I can use this site for the support I need. It would be great to find a local buddy to lean on. I am still trying to navigate the site so it may take me a bit to get back to you. Tue, 8 Apr 2008 12:08:35 EST I just joined today Hi Everyone. My name is MJ. I live in Fremont as well. I joined sparkle becuase I heard they had a forum for the program called "I can make you thin" a new television series on the TLC. And after signing up found this forum as well. I really want to lose weight this year and my goal is to lose 30-60 lbs. If anyone likes to walk or workout let me know. <BR> <BR> I also rejoined the Bally's gym off of Fremont Blvd. If anyone wants to work out. Mon, 7 Apr 2008 18:36:06 EST Meet up Hello there, <BR> <BR> I'm new on spark people. It looks like a fun motivational site. Since I'm also one of those folks fighting the weight loss battle, I was curious if any of you soldiers wanted to team up and fight it together.
