SparkPeople RICHARD SIMMONS Sweatin To The Oldies Team Messageboard for those of us who have a desire to get healthy and stay positive during our journey to fitness using Richard Simmons as an inspiration SparkPeople RICHARD SIMMONS Sweatin To The Oldies Team Messageboard Richard's Clubhouse So who here belongs to Richard's Clubhouse? Is it fun? Does a lot happen there? Is it worth the membership fee? Sun, 23 Mar 2014 12:44:10 EST New to this team Hi everyone, <BR> <BR> Just joined the team this week, and I'm really excited about incorporating Richard's ideas into my Spark journey. I'd lost 72 pounds on my previous Spark stint, but you guessed it, I gained it all back plus ten. This time I am determined to get to my goal of 180 pounds and maintain a good five pound range between 178 and 182. <BR> <BR> I have been using the Spark nutrition tracker as before, but all the worrying about calories is really stressing me out. I went on... Sun, 23 Mar 2014 12:40:40 EST What's happening? Hi everyone, I've been going through some of the groups and have joined a wondering about this group. Would love to what's going on?

You could get more just click on the team red flag Thu, 13 Feb 2014 13:20:40 EST Hi everyone I saw this group and thought; YES! I loved dancing with my mom to sweatin with the oldies when I was in my 20's and I also remember exercising to his videos (then VHS) when my daughter was about a year old. She would have me laughing so hard, when she was doing sit-ups that I couldn't even do them myself. Yes my daughter and I sweated with the oldies back in them days and had a great time doing it. I have just ordered his original sweatin with the oldies set and cannot wait for them to get... Mon, 11 Nov 2013 10:37:40 EST Project Hope...Expect a loss if you return it. I still love Richard, but I am soooo very disappointed in his return policy of his Project Hope. <BR> <BR> Just be sure you want it unless you want to pay for shipping to get it ($12.99), then pay $6.50 to return it and NOT get back the $12.99 beginning charge. And it's almost the identical videos I already have. <BR> <BR> Total to order $72.97 <BR> Total refunded $53.48 <BR> <BR> Total Loss $19.49 and a disappointed customer. <em>39</em> <BR> <BR> Sun, 20 Oct 2013 21:32:51 EST Has anyone tried Project HOPE I would love to get the DVD's. Has anyone tried them? I want them to be fun like Sweatin to the Oldies. I'm sticking with Spark so I don't need the food mover. Wed, 2 Oct 2013 15:01:02 EST GO YOU CHICKEN FAT, GO! I think most of you will remember this?! I was looking for something to make me laugh (or at least smile) while I was working out and thought of this old song we used to have in P.E. in school. I looked it up on the internet and couldn't believe how many versions there were and how funny some of them are. I didn't know that Robert Preston was the singer. Loved him in "The Music Man" and even more in "Victor, Victoria". I did know that JFK had this done as part of his "President's Council on P... Sat, 6 Jul 2013 13:18:40 EST maryfatann Hi all. Not much about me, I dispatch and sit way too many hours at work (12) and finding Sparks People has been super and, well finally a place to call home !!! Did so great, lost 10 pounds in about 5 weeks with Sparks and Richard Simmons, went on vacation and gained 6 back. I walked and hiked for hours on end but obviously put the wrong foods in my mouth. I wasn't accessed to computer or a scale so I notebooked everything and entered it today. I am so excited about getting back to a good ea...

Wow! I'm so glad I searched using Richard's name. I love doing his workouts, and I was so excited to find a team that actually appears to be active. I've joined and left several teams over the last week trying to find one that's both active in itself, and a team that I know I would commit to visiting everyday, and this may be the one! I think having too many teams can be overwhelming and nearly impossible to keep up with, so I want to find two or three really good ones that I love to go t...

And it carried on as my fav into what I call "The Atkins Years". <BR> <BR> <BR> It wasn't until I started Sparkin' that I could see its nutritional impact on my health, specifically my waist line! <BR> <BR> At first, I buried that big jar of Super Crunchy Peanut butter way in the back of the 2nd shelf in the pantry . . . . s...

I am so excited to have found Sparkpeople. I have needed something to give me the boost and encouragement I needed. I have been suffering from a spinal cord injury since 2008. My blood work would show that I didn't metabolize proteins. I tried wt. watchers last year and was so devoted and lost almost no weight. I was so faithful to no avail. I know I can do this. I am ending my 10th day, and I am so energized and enjoying everyday of this new plan. Yay me! Tue, 26 Jan 2010 22:05:34 EST New members 1-26-10!! Our newest member is: Wildiemom!!!

They're just awesome! Okay, question--do the schools have classes to do exercising with the music? I know when I was in middle school, we did and I liked it. That was almost 35 yrs. ago though. If they had classes like that, there wouldn't be anymore obese children. Mon, 25 Jan 2010 13:29:27 EST 1-25-10 new members!!!!! Please give a big high five for our newest memeber!! emmmmm3!!!
