Hey everyone! I joined SparkPeople back in my college days, forgot about it, and now I'm back! My husband and I moved to Gillette this past December, and I've found I LOVE it here!

If anyone is in the Gillette area looking for an 'accountability partner' let me know!! I have 90 lbs to lose, and I'm looking for company if anyone is interested.

Hi everyone! My name is Kristen, I'm 32 and married with 2 kiddos. I actually live in Montana, but I grew up in Laramie. I still have family there as well as in Riverton, Lander, Casper, and Star Valley. I love Wyoming!
It seems like this group is pretty quiet, maybe we can all encourage each other?

Have a great week!

Making progress!

Hi everyone! I am new to SparkPeople. I live in Evansville with my husband and 2 year old son. I have pushed off getting in shape for way too long now. I really want to get in shape by my 30th birthday next year. I'm hoping SparkPeople will be a good motivational tool for me.

I moved to Wyoming back in the 90's, I've lived in Rock Springs the entire time. I am a married mother to 5 kids. I've struggled with my weight and eating habits since I had my first child 16 years ago. I gained 50 lbs and just never took it off before I had my second child.

I lost the majority of my weight 5 years ago, almost 100 lbs. I have kept most of it off. I have trouble re-gaining 20 pounds..I lose it then gain it back. I can't keep to my clean eating, suffer with binge eating.

My highest weight was 242 lbs, my lowest was earlier this year 147. I am back to 180, I can gain 20 lbs in less than a month.

I have my family (kids and husband), and know my co-workers, others in the community here in Rock Springs, but have never really had friends here. I have felt isolated ever since moving here 20 years ago. Rock Springs has a large turn over rate. I've turned to the internet to join groups like this, get support, encouragement, and friendship, that I've missed. I have no other immediate family here, they are all back in Maine.

Hello. I'm Jake. I have lived in Worland for nearly 2 years. Moved here for the work. I have always been very active, until three months ago I injured my back. I have been gaining weight. I was on sp a few yrs ago after breaking my back and was dong awesome, then the job took my time. I need to lose the weight to help my back and get me back to work.

Hello, I live in Casper and I have a 4 year old daughter. I work part time and attend school full time. My husband works full time. So I am very busy and have always made excuses why I could not eat healthy and work out. Now I have realized if you want it it has to be a priority. So I make time and I feel so much better about myself when I do. I have been on spark for a week and I am loving it. Good Luck everyone!!!

Hello, I live in Buffalo and have an 8 year daughter. My husband works out of town ,so he is not home much and I have a home daycare. I have battled being heavy for all my life (40 years). I want to get to a healthy weight/healthy lifestyle so I can have more energy for all my kiddos and be a better mom and wife who is not always tired and cranky because my whole body aches. Sparkpeople looks like an awesome place to find lots of support and encouragement. I am looking forward to finding a new me who has lots of energy!

Hello, I'm from Wheatland Wyoming. I cook for an assisted living facility. I am currently batteling some Winter depression as well as an abusive husband.

Woke up late today, and I still feel the sting of the pain.
But I brushed my teeth anyway, got dressed through the mess and put a smile on my face.
I got a little bit stronger.

Hi! I think I've been on this team for a long time, but I've never introduced myself or been active. Hello! I live in Cheyenne. I am fairly close to my goal, but every half pound is a struggle. It is also a struggle to integrate exercise when the weather is so icky. But I am on a roll now.

Hi I am Kat and need to get back on here and lose some weight. Several years ago I did awesome and need to try again.

J Goodman, on Rachel Ray the other day she had a dietician on that has a book (can't remember the name right now) but it was about giving up many of the foods you described that make you sick. She was saying many of them cause a reaction that make it hard to lose weight. There were 7 foods to give up for 3 weeks then start bringing some of them back to see which ones you couldn't tolerate. Peanuts, dairy, soy, sugar were a few of them listed. Will try to find out what the book was called.

Anyway hi to all.

Goals from January 2011 and beyond

Hi I was here a few years ago and did pretty well and then "hit the wall emotionally" and dropped out so now I am back.
I am 63 and have joint problems so I will probably not be joining physical challenges unless I can do my new thing - chair exercises :o)

Hi everyone! I am Jessyca and I am 22 years old. I have a wonderful husband, who isn't around a lot of the time because he is a truck driver, and I have a beautiful 2 year old little boy named Damien. I have always been big... there were times where I was much more overweight than I am now... at 13 years old I was 4' 10" tall and weighed 305 lbs. I looked like a little ball. However, throughout high school I wanted to play volleyball, so that really helped me thin out a bit. However, my body has hit a plateau, and I haven't really lost or gained weight since right after my son was born. I have some sort of eating or digestive disorder that does not allow me to eat some of the things that I should be eating. I cannot eat any meats, besides a couple of different fish, I have a hard time with dairy products, as well as fruits, vegetables, and fats and sugars. Bread in some forms, i also struggle with. THe doctors cannot tell me what I have but if I even touch some of these foods i get sick instantly, throwing up and have chronic diarrhea. They have put me on anti-nausea pills to help with that, but it is still a daily struggle. I am hoping that maybe when I reach my goals that it will not be as bad a struggle from day to day. I am currently attending college and working on my B.A. in Business Management. If you have any other questions for me let me know!

Hi Everyone! I live in Sheridan and have been here for 20 years. I am ready to start my journey to healthier. more active living. It is so hard to motivate yourself when you are on your own so I am excited to be a part of this team! Tomorrow will be my first day to start working on my goals. I will be dropping all foods with high fructose corn syrup and starting a walking regimen.

Hi everyone,
I have lived in Wyoming most of my life, and I love living here. For my job I travel about 70-90 days a year. I want to drop to a healthier weight while learning how to manage diet and exercise on the road. I'm also hoping to get a little motivation to nudge me along at times.

Hi everyone!!! I live in the Rock Springs area. I did not work for 5 years and now I've been working for almost 1. I did not think working, being a mom of two great kids and a wife would hurt my weight so much.....but man has it ever!!! I work very close to a grocery store and it's so easy to just go grab junk food, I am ready for a change and if that means getting up at 6 am so I can workout then that's exactly what I am going to do!

Welcome Becky and Meagan! I have a place in Albany county, Wyoming though we currently must live on the job just over the Colorado state line. I've been in Wyoming about 26 years now- my family in Oregon keeps asking me when I'm coming home emoticon I am home. I do miss the ocean though and the big trees. Keep logging in and exploring this team as I have found connections and inspiration here that I just can't find other places. Wyoming is unique and being isolated or a long ways from anything called "a store" gives us bit different perspective emoticon emoticon

Hi, I am Meagan. I live in the Rock Springs area. I am looking to get back to the weight I was last summer and lose a few more pounds (about 15 pounds total). I really want to get in shape and toned up. I hope I can find some motivation to keep with it! Once the weather shapes up I hope to kill some calories by getting out on my mountain bike. I have no excuses now that I am out of school for the summer!

Hi! My name is Brandi, 28, and I live in Riverton. I have had a hard time with finding a support system and the movtivation to pretty much do anything. I really seem to like this page as I looked around it. I hope to like it even more as I get the change to explore more. Time is an issue, as I am working and going to school both full-time.

Even though I lost and gained weight over the last year I decided to join a health club to help me to stay focused on the program and goals I have set out to do. Since joining I have been diagnosed with a bowl disease, and in just the last month CHF. It has been stressful but I take it one day at a time. I need your encouragement to help me reach my goals.

Thanks! emoticon

Hello Wyomingites!

I just recently joined SparkPeople because I want to lose about ten pounds that I have put on over the winter. I live in Evanston and this winter has been hard for me. I am used to going outside to workout and the treadmill has become tedious. Anyway, I thought I would introduce myself and wish everyone luck with their weight loss goals!

Howdy folks!

I'm new to Sparkpeople and just thought I'd introduce myself. I live in Wheatland and am looking to lose that last 60 pounds. I lost 45 pounds last year and took a "break" from logging all of my food because I wanted to see if I could maintain that weight loss and also wanted to give my body a break so I wouldn't hit that dreaded plateau and get frustrated, give it all up, and feel like I wasn't in control. I did great on the maintenance and felt very empowered over food but recently changed jobs from a very active one to one where I sit on my butt all day. Along with a new job comes new stress so, needless to say, I've gained almost 20 back in the last 3 months and I'm determined to put a stop to that right now. So, here I am. I'm excited to see so many Wyoming people on here! I'm still learning my way around the site so please bear with me!

Hey there JSOERTLI and all y'all in this group. I'm not new to Sparkpeople but have recently moved back to Douglas. I am 51 and have been working at this since Sept 3, 2010. I started out fast and furious. Made a whole lot of changes including going back to school all at the same. I did ok for a few months then, with too much stress, the holidays, I stepped back into my old habits. Then June 7 my husband lost his job and was able to come back to Douglas to work for his old boss. It sounds funny but at that time all the stress just went away. I moved back the end of August. Since June 7, I've lost 30 of my 47 pounds. I have 53 more to go to meet my goal.

You can reach your goals and you've found a great site to help you.

Hi CarriX2 and everyone else! I live in Gillette and I just joined yesterday. I am 58 years old and I'm thinking how hard it is to lose weight at my age. I found this site on Kim Komando and decided to give it a try. I would like to lose 50-60 pounds which just seems impossible. I walked this morning and ate a health breakfast so I'm off!! It sounds like you and I are in the same boat Carri so let's try this together, okay?

Hi everyone, I just joined yesterday and am looking for motivation to keep me on track! I can't believe there are almost 10,000 Wyoming-ites on here! Who knew?? I'm 38 years old, mother of 3, 5'9" and currently right at 200 pounds. Wow, that almost sounds like a dating site post, doesn't it? My turn ons are kittens and honesty. My turn offs are smelly feet and bad drivers. Heehee, just kidding.

Anyway, I know how this diet and exercise thing works, I know what to eat and what not to eat. I know I gotta MOVE if I want to see this fat go anywhere. But my problem is with motivation and sticking to it. The longest I've gone really well is about a week. And we all know, if you have a stressful day and eat Taco Bell for dinner, you just figure, what the heck, I might as well scrap the whole thing now, right? Then that kind of thinking leads to more bad eating and no exercise. It's a spiral ride I don't want to take anymore.

So any help would be fabulous! I'm not so good with people in person, but I would love some "virtual" companionship! Thanks so much!

Hi, i moved to Wyoming after college graduation to live with my parents(free rent.. yay). Job hunting is my new job so i have lots of spare time that i see as an opportunity to make some major life changes, weight loss being one. I've never lived in Wyoming so i'm kinda experiencing culture shock. People seem really friendly and i hope to adjust soon. My goal is to lose 10 pounds a month. Hopefully it all works out.

Hi! I live in Evanston, WY. I'm losing weight to one day conceive a child. My husband recently beat cancer, so the odds are stacked against us. Anything I can do to give us a better chance is a good thing. I want to be back to the size I was when I graduated high school. I don't entirely like who I see in the mirror and want to fix that. I'm just under the overweight line and want to be back to just above the underweight line. I have a tiny frame and weight shows way more then I like. Would love a walking buddy in Evanston if there is one around. :)

I honestly wish I knew what to tell you. I was all set to start walking daily then it got cold again. I know. It is horribly insane. Don't pack your winter clothes. You never know when you will need them. But, I love Wyoming. It is still wild here which I love. Good luck!

Fellow Wyoming friends, I am so ready for the weather to turn and STAY warm. It's definitely impacting my mood and motivation to exercise. Anyone have advice for a new Wyoming person. (it is already in the high 80's where we moved from).

Hello! My name is Connie. I started Spark when I lived in New Mexico, I moved to Daniel, WY the end of Feb, and I'm starting on spark again. I've spent every summer of my life in Big Piney, and before we went to New Mexico we lived in Farson. I'm looking forward to getting back on track!!

Ok, I'm reintroducing myself since I have been missing in action for awhile. My names Laurie I've lived in Wyoming all my life. I'm currently teaching first grade and loving every minute of it. I have two boys: one 6 years old and the other 9 months old. I am currently sleep walking through life with the youngest every 2 hour feedings. But it will be over way too soon and I will be missing it. I hope to regain my momentum and find success again. So stop by my page and visit anytime. Motivation and Inspiration need all time.

Hey! I'm Dreama. I currently reside in Laramie, Wyoming. Sooo psyched to see a group just for us Wyomingites! Love this country.
Now, I am a mom of five. My oldest is 21 and in the Army. He is currently in California on pre-deployment training. Not happy about him possibly going to Iraq. My 19 year old is mentally disabled. Then I have a just turned 18 year old. He is graduating in May. He has also joined the Army and will be heading to basic on June 6th. I have a 15 year old as well. He wants to go to school for game designing when he gradutates high school. Last, but of course, not least is my daughter. She has albinism (albino). She just turned 12. Her ambitition is to be a singer/actress when she grows up. I told her that she needs to make sure she has a backup plan.
As for me, I'm a soon-to-be-divorced person (two times divorced now) and I'm a student at Phoenix University.
As for weight loss, I would love to get back to 120, but my biggest goal is to get healthy so that when I'm older I won't be a burden on my children. That's hard and I would rather not do that. Right now, I'm 147 at last weigh-in. So, yeah! Too many pounds to lose and too many physical problems to make it fast. Right now I'm down with arthritis in my knees. Hard to exercise like that! *grin*
