I've been away too long and gained back almost half of what I lost from 2009 through 2011. My head is getting back where it belongs now and I'm looking forward to finding the healthy and happy person I was before. I'm not a particularly social person so I rarely blog, but I'm very glad to know that I could be passing other Sparkers on the streets. Hmmm, maybe I should order a Spark shirt or jacket so you can recognize me! <em>213</em> Wed, 18 Dec 2013 17:41:10 EST Christmas Challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=9706x12349x55918990 From the 10th thru the 25th give a gift each day to someone.

I went to the nutritionist today and she told me to add 2 more servings of dairy and 2 more servings of fruit. Other than that she said my exercise and everything else was good. The cool thing she talked about: Studies have shown that a year from now, it does not matter what diet plan you choose to lose weight because they all work. The only thing that matters is choosing the one that works for you.

But anyway, if there is anyone that goes there, let me know how it is! And if there is anyone around who'd like to join, come on! 19 days free and $19 a month, might be worth it!

This could motivate some to walk each day. So I will do my best to do a walk today. Anyone game? Let's Walk & Tell. Julia Sat, 23 Feb 2008 11:03:18 EST New to this group http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x12349x12066097 Hi Everyone, I'm Cindy and I live in Pfafftown, NC, just north of Winston-Salem, but I work in town just off of Stratford Road. I just joined Sparks a couple weeks ago and I love the site and all that it has to offer. I'm looking forward to being part of this group and maybe even meeting others in my area who like to get out and walk/hike. Thu, 7 Feb 2008 13:55:41 EST Hello - I'm new... http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x12349x11970459 I hope you don't mind an 'outsider' in your group. I work in Greensboro and live in Summerfield, but make it up to Winston-Salem about every other weekend (I LOVE the Whole Foods there). I've only lived in North Carolina for about six months, from Missouri originally. <BR> <BR> Nice to have some 'Sparkers' nearby.

I just graduated from college and moved from asheville. i'm living at home while I try to find a teaching job and pay off some of my education loans. i'm really excited that this group is here to get some good tips on places to bike and hike in the area and listen to others ideas. Thu, 31 Jan 2008 16:24:18 EST Let's walk http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x12349x11636777 Hey Winston Salem Sparkers, <BR> Is anyone interested in meeting at a park and walking together? I am near Bethabara Park which is a walk in the woods. Also Polo School has a track and a nice walking area is at Yorshire and Reynolda. <BR> Maybe we could get some of us together on a Saturday and walk together. Anyone want to try this? Of course the weather needs to cooperate also. Julia Thu, 24 Jan 2008 18:01:15 EST Hello! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x12349x11387973 Hello everyone!
