Wed, 31 Mar 2010 08:59:48 EST Saying Hello to Kingston http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x21317x32768825 Hi Everyone, <BR> I am not actually from Kingston but I work here and live in Lansdowne which is about 20 minutes from here. Hoping to connect with some local people to help in the weight loss process. <BR> Looking forward to getting to know you! <BR> Chris <BR> Wed, 17 Mar 2010 16:24:57 EST New Member saying hello http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x21317x32396163 Hello everyone: <BR> I am Tracey and I live just outside of Gananoque. I have just turned 50 and have struggled for my whole life with being a little overweight...usually 20 - 30 lbs. Like many, I could lose it with fasting, soup diets, etc., but it wouldn't last and I would end up irritable and feeling weak. My greatest challenge is that I have a very physical job...I am a dog groomer, plus I breed purebred cats, which takes about an hour of time each day and I really don't have the time ... Wed, 3 Mar 2010 06:47:07 EST MARCH CHALLENGE http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x21317x32212874 Let's try this again...my Feb. challenge didn't work out very well. I expect I will be lucky to actually weigh the same on Feb. 28th as I did on Feb. 1st as I have had a challenging month. <BR> <BR> I am going to try again for March - I thought about decreasing my weight loss goal for the month BUT 10 pounds is totally doable - afterall it's a long month with 31 days too, right? <BR> <BR> Here's to losing TEN pounds between March 1-March 31. First weigh-in will be March 4th to coincide with... Wed, 24 Feb 2010 13:05:30 EST FEBRUARY 10 POUND CHALLENGE! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x21317x31601274 I just joined a 10 pound challenge on the challenge board and thought I would post for our team. Any takes??? I am aiming to lose 10 pounds this month - just shy of a day less than a month from now. <BR> <BR> Anyone want to join me in this challenge??? <BR> <BR> We can check in weekly on the Board with a final report on March 1st. <em>249</em> Mon, 1 Feb 2010 14:16:36 EST It's a New Year! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x21317x30651452 Happy 2010 to all. I was happy to see a Kingston group here. I have been on Spark since 2008, but slacked off this last year and need to get motivated again. Of course, it is Jan 1st now, but I intend to get tracking and get cracking on the exercise as well. Fri, 1 Jan 2010 10:30:28 EST TIPS FOR STAYING FOCUSSED OVER THE HOLIDAY SEASON http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x21317x29987793 Thought I'd start this thread to generate some ideas...please share your tips/suggestions about staying on track over the holidays. I read recently that on average people gain something like 12 pounds over the holidays and I'd like not to be one of them! <BR> <BR> Ideas: <BR> <BR> * Bring healthier options when visiting friends for snacks. <BR> * Keep exercising. <BR> * Track food intake with minimal cheating - this is a challenge for me....

I can tell you for sure that I used to be in great shape from swimming, water polo, etc., and my Mom - who has had a lot of knee problems in the past - loves how much water-aerobics works for her without over-stressing her joints! <BR> I've been out of the pool for some time and miss swimming; I've made it a goal to get to the pool a few times a week...but so far it hasn't happened. Today was my...

Basically you pre-pay $140 for ten weeks ($130 for Seniors/Students/Lifetime members who are over the goal weight) and do not have to pay the registration ...

Thu, 4 Jun 2009 09:45:22 EST Hi! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x21317x25955097 Hi Everyone! I'm from the Belleville/Trenton area. I have belonged to the site for about a year, but haven't been really active on the site recently. I am trying to lose my last 10- 20 lbs.... My starting weight when I began my weight loss journey was 262 and little by little, through a lot of hard work, it has become 169. Recently, I joined a biggest loser competition that they started at my work to see who could lose the greatest % of body weight over 10 weeks and I won! I lost 18 lbs an... Sun, 31 May 2009 18:18:40 EST Today...... http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x21317x25907452 Today I am going to attempt dieting again. Man I am finding this hard.

For me today, I completed the C25K program!!!!!! I actually ran 33 minutes today without stopping! Now that I am running 30 minutes consistantly I will focus on my speed and distance as my goal is to be able to comfortably run 5 km in 35 minutes max. again. Today I went a total of 40 minutes (5 walk, 33 run, 2 walk) and got to 4.65 km. I have some work to do but I will get there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mon, 9 Mar 2009 14:51:44 EST Little changes...BIG results http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x21317x23334048 I have learned over time that drastic changes only set me up for failure. So starting Monday, March 2...I am going to begin each week with a goal to change/try something that will help me obtain my goal weight and lead a healthy lifestyle. <BR> <BR> Goal for week of March 2 - The kitchen is closed at 7 p.m. (No eating after that time) <BR> <BR> <em>4</em> Sat, 28 Feb 2009 09:25:34 EST New Years challenge! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x21317x21323981 Anyone out there up for a challenge!
