Hi Fresno Team!

I'm Carol and I live in the Mariposa Mountains with my loving DH and two black labs. We have three daughters, two off in college, and one in High School. I love to cook and bake - so I'm changing my recipes to include new healthier ones. I am active in my local church and rejoice in and am humbled by the love God has for me.

I have struggled with my weight since I was a teenager. I tried every diet plan available and every prescription drug to control my appetite - Nothing worked for very long. I had RNY Gastric Bypass in August 2013 with Dr. Ghiasi at Fresno Heart and Surgical Center. It was the best decision of my life. I am down 90 pounds with only 10 more to hit my goal weight. I have renewed energy and am walking 3-4 miles per day. For me it has given me control back and set the course for a new lifestyle of eating healthy and exercising.

I look forward to getting to know you all.

Hi everyone. It seems that the Fresno area is very quiet, but maybe with the new year approaching things will revive.

I live south of Fresno in the Reedley/Dinuba area. I've been in California for the last 4.5 years. I am 44, married, with two daughters (16 and 9). I plan to lose half of my body weight (go from 330 to 165 pounds).

I work for an international company and travel extensively. I have gotten used to requesting the seat belt extenders and finding airplane seats (bulkhead) that prevent the spread so I'm not plastered next to my seatmates. I am always fearful of my clothes being lost because you have find size 26 pants/shirts easily outside of the U.S.

My exercise of choice is jogging but I haven't been able to do that in 3 years. I completed the Twin Cities half marathon in 2009 when I was 250 pounds. Now it is difficult for me to walk more than 15 minutes without back pain because of all the extra weight I carry.

I know what to do to lose weight (I've lost between 30 - 100 pounds a few times) but it gets very difficult as I get older and with more extra weight it is harder to exercise without pain. I have high cholesterol but no issues with diabetes or blood pressure.

I look forward to "meeting" you folks on here.

Cassie

Hey everyone,

My name is Mark and I have been on Spark People for well over a year now. I started in November 2011 at a whopping 373 pounds. Today I now weigh 200 pounds with an eventual goal of 173 pounds. That's not too bad as I turn 50 in a couple of months. I restarted my Spark People account after providing hospice care and handling the many details subsequent to mother's death. So I am back to my normal 1500 calories a day and enjoy a certain amount of comfort in the routine. The one thing that is harder is getting back into exercising. I traditionally did Leslie Sansome exercise videos 5 days a week and rode my bike almost everyday. Today will be the first day I will do an exercise video and I haven't ridden in almost 3 weeks. I hope to ride about 10 miles and do a 55 minute workout with Leslie . Wish me luck!


One day at a time!

Hi, I'm back. I was Melnelo before... i started a new acct. I had a baby 3/6/12 (she's amazing!) and I needed to start over. I'm the same size I was when I started back in 2010 (or so). Sparkpeople really helped me last time and I lost 30 lbs! I'd never felt better. I actually enjoyed seeing picture of myself. But all that's gone. I'm signed up for the Color Me Rad 5K in November and back on track logging my food.

My name is Linda and I am returning after several Yo Yo weight events. I think this is the best way for me to lose the weight, manage my diabetes and become social again after losing my job of 10 years due to a downsizing event. I have been in a deep bummed out rut for the last 4 months and I need to GET OUT OF IT! I plan to be very active here on this team as I was in the past. See ya around !

Hi, my name is Bill. I just moved to the Hanford area. I'm really looking forward to this thing. LOL. I want to lose 115 lbs or more.

Hi everyone. My name is Camille, I have lived here in Fresno for my whole life. I'm a bit new to the site but learning my way around rather quickly. I came to Spark People for the same reason everyone else did.... to lose the extra weight! I have struggled with my weight a very long time. I am sure most of you can relate when I say that I HATE going clothes shopping. It brings me to tears almost every time. So, I'm here, doing something about it. I hope I can get some motivation and I hope I can give some motivation back. I look forward to meeting everyone and creating a strong bond while we go through this life changing journey called weight loss.

Hi Zhia, welcome - If you're serious about losing weight, I highly recommend looking into the "Healthy Weight Management" class I took through Kaiser Permanente...you don't have to be a KP to take it, though. We met once a week (Monday nights 6pm-7:30pm) at the Clovis KP for 10 weeks...the cost was $75 (not sure if more for non-members though).

It's a great way to learn about eating healthier foods (their meal plans give you real food options broken down so you understand portions and how many of this and how many of that you're supposed to eat each meal). The big thing for me was definitely meeting every week and having that accountability (I lost 12 lbs).

Anyway, just a suggestion from someone who was skeptical but ended up really enjoying it. Good luck!

hi, I'm Zhia, mother of two and brand new to this site. I live in Fresno, am relatively new here and just looking to see what its all about on here. I have been trying to lose weight for over a year now, but feel unmotivated a lot of the time because I don't know a lot of people out here. I hope that by being on this site and reading success stories I will get on it and lose those pounds

Hi Dawn, wow you've lost 85 lbs? That's awesome :) Blast Fitness is fine but I liked it better when it was Bally's....just little changes like crappy paper towels, no more cleaning personnel constantly wiping down machines, and the cheaper monthly deal has brought in some clientele that don't understand proper gym etiquette. I've been exposed to stinky perfume girls, people who don't seem to launder their gym clothes, people who talk on cell phones, rude people who talk and talk and talk to their workout partners....I don't know if it's like that anywhere else or if I'm just sensitive to those things, but I just like to warn people that it's gotten worse since Blast took over. On the bright side, my daughter enjoys the daycare lady, Bernie, so if you have young kids, you can drop them off there and know they'll do fine. And depending on when you go, it may not be too crowded. I go around 11am and it's hit or miss. Anyway, if you just need a place with machines (or a pool at the one on Shaw/Willow) and you don't want to spend too much, it's still a decent option. I go to the one on First/Herndon.
Let me know if you join!

Hi Becky! Welcome to Spark. I'm not nearly as active on here as I used to be, so I'm glad I saw your post. DH and I have been touring gyms this past weekend and toured the Blast on Shaw/El Capitan. How do you like them? They told us they're soon going to go 24 hours at one or two of their locations, which I like. I don't like that the one near our house doesn't have a pool though. I've lost around 85 pounds (so far) and need to tone up some of this flab!

Hi Fresno, I've been on Spark a couple weeks but decided this group might be better for me since I live here in the 'No too.

I'm 36, a stay-at-home mom to a crazy 3 1/2 year old, and have been trying to lose weight for 2 months now. I'm petite, and 30 extra lbs really hurt my self esteem! I recently finished a 10-week "Healthy Weight Management" course through Kaiser and lost about 12 lbs there...so I have about 20 more to go through diet (1,500 cal/day meal plan) and exercising 3-5 x's a week (mostly running & biking, plus I'm a member at Bally's/"Blast").

Speaking of running, I ran the Human Race earlier today in downtown Fresno, where I met my goal of under 75 minutes. Anyone else run in it?

Hope to have a great time with you all here.
:) Becky emoticon emoticon

Yeah, I'm just getting back into running and not very fast myself. :) Let you know if I need a running partner or not. Its been a little hard for me to get out since I go to kickboxing or boot camp at GABB 3 times a week. Love both and def notice a difference but I need to really start focusing on running!

You call it obsession, I call it dedication.

Thanks Carrie D. Preparing for the Twin Cities marathon? I was thinking about doing that last year but I abandoned my training after a month :D

If you want a running partner sometime, let me know. I'm pretty slow right now, averaging 5-6 mph at distances of 1-3 miles, but I'm working on it.

Welcome Tanner!

I don't use the SparkPeople's meal plans either. I do track everything and that has helped me become more aware of what I am putting into my body. Tough Mudder sounds awesome, I know a few people who have done it and have thought about doing it myself, I'm preparing to run a half marathon in November right now.

Good luck and hope sparkpeople works for you :)

Birthday: Sept 6th

Pets: 1 dog I rescued, a terrier mix.

Hobbies: Piano, Videogames, Watching sports, Poker
Why Am I Here: I'm getting myself back into shape for an extreme sports run called "Tough Mudder" in late Sept. I figured it couldn't hurt to eat right while I do so in order to lose a few pounds. So I came to spark to help me with a diet plan. Didn't like the options they were giving me so I'll probably just eat right on my own and then input my diet into the tracker as I go.

And

How Did I Choose My Username: Tanner Hickerson is my name.

Used to be 215 lbs, lost some weight and then gained some weight. It's time to get back on track! Dang, why is the best tasting food so bad for you?! Lol

TELL US ALL ABOUT YOURSELF..

ARE YOU A NEWBIE or an OLDIE BUT GOODIE: A little of both
SPARK ANNIVERSARY DATE: August 2010
FIRST NAME: Vicki
BIRTHDAY: Feb. 26
MARRIED, if so, how long: Yes, 15 years in November
MARRIAGE ANNIVERSARY: Nov. 1
KIDS: 2 boys and 1 girl
PETS: 3 Dogs
WORK: Accounting Manager at a local Non-Profit
HOBBIES: Reading, eating (which is why I'm here), spending time with my family and friends
WHY ARE YOU HERE: My main purpose of joining this group is that I need someone to be accountable to. My parents, brother, and sisters are all overweight, but none of them want to make any lifestyle changes, and I know from past experiences that I cannot do this alone. I lost 60 lbs in 2004 and gained it all back and then some. I also have a thyroid disorder which makes losing weight very difficult (and staying motivated), but I also know from past experiences that doing nothing only makes it worse! I look forward to meeting like minded, inspirational people. :)

AND...

Tell us why or how you came to choose your USERNAME? My username is a joint electronic name that my husband and I use because we are an odd couple

TELL US ALL ABOUT YOURSELF...

Hi My name is JJ!

ARE YOU A NEWBIE or an OLDIE BUT GOODIE: I joined sparkpeople last August I think and joined some groups, including this one, and after about a week forgot about it
SPARK ANNIVERSARY DATE: August of 2010 (I think)
FIRST NAME:JJ
STATE:California
BIRTHDAY: September 18
MARRIED: Yep for 8 1/2 years
MARRIAGE ANNIVERSARY: November 26, 2002
KIDS: yes a daughter (8 in 3 weeks) and 2 sons 4 1/2 and 2 1/2
GRANDKIDS:noooooooo
PETS: 1 dog
WORK: Substitute Teacher
HOBBIES: I am the fundraising coordinator and lead team mom for my daughter's all-star cheer gym, a graduate student with only 1/2 a class left! yay! and my husband is deployed= no time for hobbies haha. But I do like baking and decorating cupcakes and making bows and flower clips.
WHY ARE YOU HERE: I am fat. Plain and simple. I am at my heaviest and it is awful. I want to be healthy. I am going to be 27 in September and the idea of going to my high school reunion next year overweight, or turning 30 and being this big upsets me. I want to be comfortable, healthy, and have more energy. My husband has been working hard on his deployment and he is in such good shape. I dont want people to look at us and wonder how the fat girl got such a good looking man. I have always known what I need to do to lose weight, and I do work out 3-5 days a week at the gym but the food part hasbeen hurting me. especially when I am taking my daughter to cheer 6 nights a week, working, in school, and not having to cook for my husband....quick, microwaveable, or drive-thru becomes our food. its not good for my kids and not good for me. So basically I am on here for accountability for what I put in my mouth!

AND...

Tell us why or how you came to choose your USERNAME? its my name. simple enough :)

Hi everyone,
I'm Whitney and 24. I've just returned to Fresno after having lived elsewhere for well over a year and a half. I've struggled with an ED for the majority of my life (switching between extreme episodes of binging and anorexia) and in the past 6 months let it take complete control, and well now I'm on a mission to lose 35-40 lbs and develop a new healthy lifestyle and not resort to my old habits of my eating disorder.

I look forward to meeting like minded people, I think support is probably the one thing that could really help me get through this, as I am sure many of you feel the same way (and that's half the reason you are here!) anyway, nice to meet you all and good luck on your weight loss journey!

Hi everyone :)

My name is Ashley, Im 24 and I live in Fresno with my boyfriend and one dog (who gives me that pathetic look if I DONT take him for a walk, so hes a good motivator!)
I work at a hotel in Fresno, I knit, sew, and do various crafts in my free time.

My goal is to lose about 85 pounds in a year.

Im excited to be a part of the Fresno team, because it means that there are people around me to motivate me and hopefully I can return the favor!

Greeting,
My name is Kelly and I'm new to Sparks. I live in Coarsegold and I work and go to school in Fresno. I'm 41 years old and have been married for 23 years with 3 grown son's. I'm a LVN(nurse) that works with medically fragile and disabled children. I'm also going to school to get my RN. I'm a busy,busy girl and have used that excuse to eat fast food and not move my body. This has made me overweight and unhappy with myself!! So I'm making a change and I'm going to work really hard to be healthier!! I'm looking forward to getting to know you all!!

FIRST NAME: Rachel

BIRTHDAY: Aug 29

MARRIED: Happily Married for 11yrs

KIDS: daughter 5 and son 2 1/2

PETS: one dog and some fish

WORK: stay at home mom for now

HOBBIES: I love to bake, cook and make jam, I crochet and knit and I'm horribly addicted to football which just boggles the minds of most of my friends.

WHY ARE YOU HERE:
I want to feel good about myself again. I want to get undressed in front of my husband in the light, not quickly in the dark as I jump into bed so he doesn't see me. I've tried spark a few times but I'm here for the long haul this time :)

Also I'm not technically in Fresno I'm in Coarsegold but that's close enough.

I joined the Water 4 Kids Virtual 5k taking place the third week in September!

Hello. My name is Catrina and I am a mother of one six year old. I have been struggling with my weight since I got pregnant and have finally made a concrete decision to lose weight. I am tired of being embarressed any time I go out, especially to resteraunts. I am tired of hating myself and the way I look. I need to take care of myself so that I am able to take care of my daughter. I need someone who is going through similar difficulties to lean on and support at the same time. I don't have any friends outside my own family and I need the support of people who understand what I am going through. My overall goal is to lose 70 pounds in 19 months, and 3-4 pounds a month, although I would like to have the process of losing weight go faster, but I know it will take time. My goal weight is 130 pounds by my 28th birthday, so if meet that goal before my set deadline it would be great. I need a Spark Buddy! emoticon

Hi! I joined SparkPeople back in 2006 and went back and forth for years with weight. I had my daughter in 2009 and gained 30 pounds when pregnant! She is now almost two and I am holding steady at 172... I would LOVE to get back down to my pre-pregnancy weight of 147 and know SparkPeople (and fresno!) is the place to start!

Would love to get involved with everyone!!!

Hi Fresno Team,

My name is Rachel Quiz. I have been Sparken for about 1 year now, since then I have lost 35 lbs. I am looking forward to being under 200 lbs very soon. I am 32 years old. married with 2 dogs, both muts from the pound and they are the smartest dogs I have ever had. I live south of Fresno in the small town of Fowler, which I love. I am an amateur photographer who loves all things nature. My life is pretty normal but if it were up to me it would be a musical and we would all sing and dance our troubles away.

Enough about me, I look forward to the challenges and getting to know everyone on the team. emoticon
