SparkPeople Rock County (WI) and Surrounding areas Team Messageboard New to team Hi everyone. <BR> Right now I live up in Marquette County but I hail from Rock County, Has been my home since about 10 years ago. There are some things that I miss, like the availability of a larger town. Although I must say that when I drive thru Janesville I am amazed that it seems so huge now and I pretty much grew up in that area. Wed, 13 Jul 2011 22:35:59 EST Hello from Beloit I am a house wife determined to loose all the weight i have gained in the past 11 years. When I met my husband 11 years ago I weighed about 200 pounds. Over the years I have slowly gained and lost weight. After we married in April of 2001 we had some money struggles while trying to raise our 4 children. There were a few times we were homeless. Now our children our grown and out on their own and this is the 1st time in 10 years we had more control of our finances. I recently found out I ... Sun, 10 Apr 2011 10:06:21 EST Do DVD workouts? If so, what's your favorite? I got hooked on the Leslie Sansone Walk At Home dvds. I'm interested in doing something else. Mon, 11 Oct 2010 21:25:36 EST Fish Fry Issues Hello. I like to go out for fish like most of Wisconsin, but I have a difficult time finding a healthy option. I don't mind baked fish. I just don't like soggy fish draped in butter. I also have a weakness for french fries. It would be nice to salad or soap option instead. Can anyone recommend a restaurant? Sun, 10 Oct 2010 14:44:27 EST Hello from Milton Just wanted to introduce myself to the team. I just renewed my diet and exercise goals and decided I need to be apart of a support team. It's wonderful to see so many people from the same area doing the same thing. <BR> <BR> My doctor says I need to lose 15-20lbs. So far, I've been able to avoid heart medications. <BR> <BR> I enjoy doing the Leslie Sansone workout dvds. When the weather is nice I also like to walk outside, hike in the state parks, and bike.

Mon, 26 Apr 2010 13:37:16 EST Has Anyone Heard of Umeboshi Plums? This is what I have found so far.... <BR> <BR> Umeboshi were used to prevent fatigue, purify water, rid the body of toxins, and cure specific diseases such as dysentery, typhoid, and food poisoning. Slowly, extensive folklore developed about umeboshi's ability to prevent and cure certain diseases. <BR> <BR> During Japan's furious samurai period, which lasted through most of the Middle Ages, the pickled plum was the soldier's most important field ration. It was used to flavor foods such as ... Fri, 23 Apr 2010 15:22:01 EST Walking, Walking and More Walking Hi All, <BR> <BR> Now that the weather is warming up and it's staying light out longer, would anyone in the Janesville or surrounding area be interested in starting a walking club/group? <em>311</em> <BR> <BR> I think it would be great to get a group of us out walking.

I cooked a chicken breast casserole last night, and not realizing that I had left a burner on set the 9X13 clear Pyrex on the burner (totally burned the bottom, smoke everywhere). I walked out of the kitchen and heard a LOUD noise. My casserole and glass everywhere! It took me hours to clean the kitchen! A very good thing that no one was in the kitchen at the time! I had to get up in the middle of the night to light candles from all the smoke smell! <em>46</em> Tue, 1 Dec 2009 15:00:35 EST What goals have YOU met so far?

Tue, 16 Jun 2009 21:06:40 EST Food Labels... Do you look at the food labels at the grocery store BEFORE buying food? <BR> <BR> I've never really looked at labels until I get it home and maybe sometimes when I'm bored I will look. <BR> <BR> I guess I should be reading labels though, considering I need to lose weight.

Tue, 14 Apr 2009 12:42:27 EST My son might have asthma. Hubby thinks our son might have asthma as he's been stuffy and whizzy. <BR> <BR> I have it since I was 19 and hubby had it as a kid but grew out of it. <BR> <BR> How do you know when they are kids though? <BR> <BR> He's never been tested, the doctor at his 3 year checkup just said he has allergies or sinus stuff. <BR> <BR> He also had bad reflux as a baby. <BR> <BR> I wonder if indeed I will need to have him tested.

Hi Everyone ~ <BR> <BR> My name is Tina and I am the new group leader. <BR> <BR> I have been on for about 1 month and got accepted as the new leader then. <BR> <BR> But I didn't really want to say that in case the other woman decided to come back. <BR> I emailed her and haven't heard back since. <BR> So I'm assuming she wants nothing to do with this site as I have taken it over since then. <BR> <BR> That being said: WELCOME to everyone that was already a member and Welcome to the new pe... Tue, 7 Apr 2009 21:43:14 EST Telemarke ters..... I know it's just a job they have to do but it is so frustrating. <BR> Especially now when it isn't even a person but an automated system. <BR> So they just call and ask for the wrong person, I have to press 3 to say wrong person and wait for "a live person" to respond, so I wait he says the number and I say yes that's the number but wrong person, ok and hangs up. <BR> <BR> Gosh get the message people, I don't want your calls. <BR> <BR> I placed us on the no-call list but got an email from a... Tue, 7 Apr 2009 20:38:09 EST FRIENDS Are you social OR quiet, do you have a large amount of friends or a small group? Tue, 7 Apr 2009 20:13:59 EST Portion Control (Thanks Christy Lee for the idea) <BR> <BR> Do you take measures on portion control? <BR> <BR> I usually always eat everything that is put on my plate. <BR> <BR> I have friends that pick at theirs and waste the rest, it makes me sick because I think of all those that have nothing. <BR> <BR> But I should just eat half and get a box for the rest and have left overs later. <BR> <BR> So, do you have portion control? <BR> <BR> I also should fill up on more "water" so I am not as hungry. Tue, 7 Apr 2009 20:09:58 EST Do you workout to music / kind? I like heavy metal/rock, so I listen to a lot of hard stuff and it keeps me going.

Today was the last day I got to spend time with a trainer at the YMCA. <BR> <BR> She showed me the rest of the equipment and how to use it accurately, she even pointed out many people that were using them wrong and said don't always look to other's on how to use them correctly, but to ask her if I ever had questions. <BR> <BR> So I did about 6 machines and walked fast uphill on a treadmill for 30 mintues. <BR> <BR> Then when I got home I played baseball with my son and pulled weeds, garden...
