I'm currently inching towards 40 years old and was wondering if anyone else in the same age group is having problems losing weight. I've lost 15 pounds in 9 months, but nothing like this sight telling you that you still have 50 pounds to go. Ouch! I've done everything - eat like a bird, exercise on the treadmill 4 times a week, walk the beach - and still only 15 pounds! Nearing 40 is killing me!

Need a workout buddy (walking to start, out of shape!). I'm sure this will work better with support - and I've never tried it this way before. Still navigating through this site, but seems to be a great one! Tue, 11 Sep 2012 13:18:54 EST Intro http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x4430x49812221 Hi all, this is my second time around Spark, tried it a few yrs back, and lost interest quickly, hoping this time it will stick. I live in Sussex county near the beaches (lewes, Rehoboth, Dewey). I have a dog I walk twice a day but need to do more in way of exercise to get healthier and drop the weight. <BR> <BR> If you have a dog and live close by & want to do the upcoming 'Bark and Boards' a boardwalk walk with your dog let me know, I think it's Oct 6. <BR> <BR> Good luck.

Sun, 17 May 2009 12:28:47 EST Hello from Lewes http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x4430x25512774 I been a member of Sparks since 2007 but not active in long time. Just came back today and started updating my page. <BR> I wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I was so excited to see that there is a Delaware team! I live just outside of Lewes, I work out at Quest and go to WW at the Plantations. Looking forward to get more involved Wed, 13 May 2009 16:30:31 EST Hello from Lewes http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x4430x25504905 Hi all :)My name's Avi, live in Lewes. I'm morbidly obese, weighing in at 451 (I lost 9 lbs already though, woot!) I'm getting gastric bypass surgery in, hopefully, three weeks up in Christiana. I'm so excited! I used to work at QVC outlet store in Rehoboth, but had to quit because I dislocated both knees.

(a mini one) http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x4430x25433166 I signed up for a 'mini' or sprint triathlon on June 7th. I'm wondering if anyone is up to it with me? <BR> It's called the DiamondGirl Delaware. It's an inaugural women's tri with a 1/4 mile swim, 10 mile bike, and 2 mile run. I've only done one other mini tri at the end of last summer. My goal is still to finish. I am not a speed demon, I swim breast stroke, and have an average bike... <BR> If you're a competitive- I won't slow you down, just looking for a friendly face,words of wisdom, e...

I've lived here since March of 2007 and came from Dover, PA. <BR> <BR> My Spark page pretty much spells out my history. If anyone is in Dover and needs a buddy, I'm here. My neighborhood is more on the retired folks side, so there's really no one to hang out with, which has made my transition to the area difficult. <BR> <BR> I'd like to possibly take a kickboxing class or something through the Kent County Parks and Rec thing, but just conversing is a gr...
