Sat, 17 Aug 2013 00:36:01 EST Introduction Hi! I currently live in Victorville. I'm so happy that I found a local group that understands some of the challenges of living here (ie, the heat!). I started walking every morning, about a month ago and also started the South Beach Diet. To date I have lost 15lbs., and I'm loving it! Those two changes will be permanent ones and so far have been easy for me. I'm looking forward to more conversations in our community!

Talk about culture shock! Glad to see there are sparkers here though. It's really difficult living here without my own car. So most of my hiking is limited to the hill behind my house. <em>213</em> Tue, 26 Feb 2013 11:28:06 EST Good practices we have. Tracking food before I eat is easy to do. I'm aware of nutritional consequences before I eat and it helps in making smarter choices when dining out. <em>228</em> Sat, 9 Feb 2013 17:00:30 EST Hi there Hi fellow desert spark members. I joined Spark in June but haven't made mush use of it until now. I've never bogged and kinda lost but I'm gonna try to learn as I go. I was thinking about joining Weight Watchers this week but thought I'd try to get involved and really try this first. I started working out regularly in March and lost a clothing size in 2 months, so excited! However, I've hit a plateau probably because I haven't changed or tried dieting at all. I know I need to make that change... Sat, 11 Aug 2012 00:32:07 EST Come on team! Let's huddle! We've been inactive for a while now. Let's get going again.

The we can see where we want to go from there. <BR> <BR> You rock! Let's show it.
