With school, work, interships, family, and friends there just doesnt seem to be enough time in the day. I have recently started exercising more, but am finding it difficult to eat better.

I stay in Executive Park off of Jack Miller Blvd. I am looking to meeting some new friends on here. I need plenty of inspiration. I like to have results NOW. I know that's not possible, but I quickly get discouraged then get mad at myself when I weigh ten to fifteen pounds more than I did before. Anyway, enough rambling on, HELLO EVERYONE IN CLARKSVILLE!!

Who is here in Clarksville? Are you ready for some local support? How can we get this team back on track? Mon, 23 Feb 2009 13:54:11 EST Quick weight loss Forum Monday at Library I read in the Leaf Chronicle today that Dr. Bill Hopkins will hold an open forum today at the Clarksville-Montgomery County Library regarding his <BR> "Z" plan for quick weight loss 6-8 PM Monday.

Hi y'all--just joined SP not that long ago and I thought I'd try to find some other Clarksville folks. Is anyone here a member of the Clarksville Athletic Club? I try to go 3 or more times a week. You'll definitely always find me there on Thursday for the yoga and zumba classes in the morning. The zumba especially is ridiculously fun. If anyone wants to meet up and have a workout buddy--let me know! :) Sun, 18 Jan 2009 15:37:50 EST Looking to jump ship... from Ft. Campbell. We just got here in May '08 and we've been living on post, but we have an accepted offer on a house right by the river!! (Knock on wood that it all goes through). <BR> <BR> Anyway, I've gained 30 pounds in the last 3 years and I am mortified, petrified, terrified - basically just sick of it all! Half the weight was getting back UP to my normal weight - the other half was blown far out of proportion after I got there. ;) <BR> <BR> So I've got a good chunk to lose. I'm ho...

Although I'm currently deployed, I usually live in Clarksville and it was nice to see a group in town. My current goal is to get my weight down to the Army standard so I can be accepted to Officer's Candidate School and get my Master's Degree in Dietetics. My biggest weakness is in accountability so I like having a place to record my bad habits. Mon, 18 Aug 2008 05:25:58 EST Back to good ol Clarksville Hi my name is Jennifer, and I'm on my way back to Clarksville, in a few days. I was there in 07 but the big deployment rolled around so back to Texas I went. Well i just thought i would say HI to you guys. I'm also looking for a workout buddy's/friends.

Wed, 25 Jun 2008 10:26:41 EST Goodbye to my friends in Clarksville I am finding it very hard to say goodbye to this group although it has been very quiet lately and no one talking or huddling. I was welcomed to this group when I first joined Spark People even though everyone in the group lives in Clarksville, Tennessee and I live in Clarksville, Pennsylvania. There is just too much going on in my life right now for me to keep up with all the teams I belong to what with my mom being extremely ill and living on a day to day basis and a four year old to take ...

Not much has been going on with the team here lately, I thought maybe it's because of this great weather we are having here in the Clarksville area. Everyone might be outside rather then inside on the computer. I thought it would be great to share some ideas on how to get out of the house and have fun while burning a few cals. Anyone got any ideas? Tue, 22 Apr 2008 17:38:10 EST Hi everyone I friend of mine at work told me about the site; so I decided to give it a try. I just signed up today. If anyone has any great advice for beginners, I'd love to hear from you. Mon, 21 Apr 2008 18:51:05 EST How do you track you food? I know this site has a food tracker but it's I was wondering do you guys find it more helpful to write down what you eat in your own record? Maybe plan out a menu or something of that nature? Or do you think the tracker is useful? Thu, 10 Apr 2008 19:58:39 EST HEY EVERYONE! Just wondering where everyone is? It's been really quiet in here lately...hope everyone is doing ok and still losing weight! Enjoy the weekend! Thu, 10 Apr 2008 14:01:14 EST Daily exercise Hey everybody! I know everyone here probably exercises. I am just curious to see what everybody does for exercise. My favorite is my treadmill workouts. I have a Gold's Gym CrossMax, and it came with preprogrammed workouts, which each are at least 30 minutes and burn 200 or more calories each. I love those! I also like to do workout videos, which my favorites are Tae-Bo and The Biggest Loser workout videos. What about ya'll? Sun, 6 Apr 2008 21:58:48 EST Hey everyone...

Wed, 20 Feb 2008 08:19:02 EST Hi newbie here! Hey guys! I just found this site today and figured I would give it a shot! It's nice to know others from Clarksville are on here too! Sun, 17 Feb 2008 22:58:53 EST Overweight kids. My husband is morbidly obese. His is because of health and medication, now 2 of his children (my stepdaughter and our son) are also getting overweight. My stepdaughter wears my clothes and just doesn't seem to want to listen when I tell her how bad it is for her health. Any ideas on how to get through to them? My son is just addicted to video games and doesn't like fruit or a lot of veggies. I need massive help for my kids and would love any advise.. Thanks <BR> <BR> Karen Wed, 13 Feb 2008 21:22:59 EST Hello all. Hey all. I just joined and look forward to us all working towards our goal together.

Look forward to getting to meet you all. <BR> <BR> Karen Tue, 12 Feb 2008 19:22:29 EST Anyone know a good local Chiropractor? I am visiting my sister in SC and she talked me into going to see a chiropractor for my back. I have degenerative disk disease and for the past 5-6 months have been in constant pain that is holding me back from really doing as much as I would like as far as exercising. So, I thought, why not? It couldn't hurt. Nothing else helps and I'm tired of just pain management with pills. So, I went...and all I can say is wow! I will be here for a few weeks and will continue to see him, but I would like... Sat, 9 Feb 2008 12:13:43 EST Weigh in How often does everyone weigh in? I'm having trouble deciding when I want to do it. I think that a week isn't enough and I'm afraid if I don't see results it will set me back. Mon, 28 Jan 2008 13:14:05 EST What to cut out I need to know what it is to stay away from? Do I cut more fat, sugar etc. Trying to plan meals for this and I'm not sure how to start.

What would you like to see happen with this team? <BR> Kat Sat, 8 Dec 2007 10:57:46 EST new to the group hi my name is pamela, i just joined sparks and the clarksvill group today. i am on a get healthy journey. i am 24 y/o married to the army, i mean married to a man in the army lol. i feel kind bad i am so out of shape and my hubby is in such good shape. i would like to be able to go running with him and keep up. i am also looking for buddies to excercise with me and keep me motivated. in the past year i have gained 50 lbs. do to a back injury that knocked me out of commision. so one of my goal...

Use this spot to shout and hoot and holler and all that, about the prgress you are making in your journey toward good health. <BR> <BR> Today I finally reached 250 lbs.

Hi ya'll, <BR> I want to encourage anyone and everyone that it's not too late this year to set a goal. Even a short term goal like eating adjustment, walking more steps each day, or trying to get more sleep. The more little steps you do the more closer you'll get to your healthy new lifestyle!! Keep pushing and don't give up :) <BR> <BR> Christie <em>100</em> Tue, 13 Nov 2007 10:20:08 EST Something to think about... what do you think?

I will weigh in Sunday and see how I did, walking my butt off and beach combing. <BR> How are ya'll doing? Having a great week? Miss me?
