SparkPeople Saint Lucie Sparkers Team Messageboard Join other Sparkers in Saint Lucie County. Let's get fit together. We can meet up for walks or hikes. Let's support and motivate each other and let's drop those pounds. SparkPeople Saint Lucie Sparkers Team Messageboard Virtual 5k Hello guys, <BR> <BR> I just joined the virtual 5k race that is featured here on sparkpeople. It is scheduled for the week of Oct 28th- Nov 3rd. I wanted to know if any of you have signed up or wanted to participate. We could plan a race route and track our times. Let's make this group active again! Sun, 16 Sep 2012 00:41:24 EST Getting together I read some previous posts and saw that a few people talked about getting together at Tradition lake to walk/exercise, I was wondering if anyone is doing that as I would like to join. I can only walk/exercise in the evenings and on the weekends. <BR> <BR> I really need to get some exercise buddies to help me get motivated as I need to get serious about my weight loss this year. <BR> <BR> Have a great day and Happy New Year. Sat, 31 Dec 2011 10:22:01 EST How have you step outside of your comfort zone? I have stepped outside of my comfort zone a lot in such a short period. I had hang ups about working outside, running, workout around other people, and being shy. That has all changed. <BR> <BR> I working out with someone I met in the community. I run everyday WITH NO MUSIC and I am coming out of my shell everytime a pound sheds off. <BR> <BR> Thu, 15 Dec 2011 19:39:40 EST Upcoming 5k events Hi everyone! <BR> <BR> I'm so excited. I will be running in my first 5k in March. I'm so excited! For years I did not like running and I thought that if I jog...I could only jog with music. WRONG! It seems when I step outside of my comfort's not so bad. <BR> <BR> Is anybody planning to run in any upcoming 5k events in the area? Is it your first one? <BR> <BR> How are you preparing? Thu, 15 Dec 2011 19:36:36 EST Best of Weight Loss Journey I suppose the best part of my weight loss journey is that I am learning so much, meeting new people and getting outside of my comfort zone while achieving my goals. <BR> <BR> And now I have sparks to make the journey even more interesting. Wed, 14 Dec 2011 20:23:41 EST Goals: Fun Cardio I think we should all strive to do a fun cardio activity at least 3 times a week. It could be riding our bikes, running, walking, martial arts (you can do free trial class), a free salsa class, or even free zumba! <BR> <BR> My personal goals include to lose the 70 lbs I have left over from the inital 90lbs. I'm a month into my journey and I holding on to the inner strength to keep momentum. Wed, 14 Dec 2011 20:20:12 EST Roll Call I know there is only 61 people here, and it looks like not that many people are active in this group. However, I will attempt to start a roll call (name, goals or achieved goals) to reach out to my Port St. Lucie Community. <BR> <BR> My name is Essence and I am 20 lbs into my 90 lbs goal. <BR> <BR> Reply if there is anybody else out there. thanks Wed, 14 Dec 2011 20:16:10 EST Let's end 2011 strong for a great start to 2012 Hi - Lets see if we can get this team up and running again. <BR> We can do this. <BR> <BR> We just have to committ to popping in everyday to say hey and give each other encouragement. I know I could use some. Especially with the holiday eat-athons coming up! I am really focusing on keeping to my workouts and regular eating habits with exception of Thanksgiving day, Christmas Eve, and Christmas day - the only days I am allowing my self to splurge. I don't want to gain any weight and ho... Thu, 17 Nov 2011 16:18:35 EST Wow! Isn't this weather great? Hello Treasure Coast and PSL sparkers. Isn't this weather sooo great? The rain has finally stopped and sun out and this weekend is perfect. I love this cool weather, especially for walking. Yesterday I walked around the Farmers Market in Ft P. and was so surprised to discover I had actually walked 1 mile. :) ( According to MapMyWalk, anyway. ) Still looking for a walking buddy, yet it's hard to meet new people when not working. Anyway, Happy Sunday. Go Chicago Bears!! Sun, 13 Nov 2011 10:39:22 EST 10,000 steps pewr day Let's get 10,000 steps per day St Lucie. <em>41</em> Mon, 11 Jul 2011 09:23:26 EST Hi everyone!

I just joined and was happy to see a group here on the Treasure Coast. (I live in Downtown Stuart but teach in St. Lucie.) Just looking around, no one seems to be active in this group.

Wed, 14 Apr 2010 22:53:27 EST Baseball And Other Summer Sports Baseball is my favorite summer following. I am a Yankee's fan. I was wondering how many others on this team follow baseball or any other sports teams during the summer? Why not post your favorite team or teams and see how they play out until the season ends. My second favorite baseball team is the Tampa Bay Rays. Oh my tomorrow starts a series between the Yankees and the Rays. Could be very interesting!! <em>300</em> <em>260</em> <em>131</em> <em>133</em> <em>502</em> <em>334</em> Thu, 8 Apr 2010 12:30:33 EST Don't We Want Credit For All Of Our Hard Work!!

My name is Karen and I am relocating to PSL from Springfield Missouri. I will be leaving next week for a 21 hour drive. My sister lives here and I loved it, starting over on the Treasure Coast. I was doing well with my modified Adkins my doctor put me on and due to life circumstances I started stuffing my face and have gained over 30 lbs this year. I am back on Sparkpeople and appreciate the support and information. <em>252</em> Thu, 17 Sep 2009 21:37:27 EST Log in points for September 1 Tue, 1 Sep 2009 07:05:54 EST Moving 3000 miles to Port st lucie!

My name is Michelle, I am 26 years old and live in Port Saint Lucie. I have 2 kids, a boy and a girl... Kyle (age 3) and Madison (age 16 months) It has been over a year since I had my baby girl and I haven't lost any weight, in fact I gained 5lbs when I weighed myself and realized I was 14.5lbs away from weighing 200lbs. I said that's enough and I am now trying my hardest to get the weight off. I started 12 days ago and have lost 3 lbs so far. I will do weigh ins every Saturday morning... Tue, 11 Nov 2008 12:23:22 EST
