Hi! My name is Brad. I just joined Sparks today. I am looking for some positive motivation. My last relationship was built on food. I found myself eating and eating when we were fighting. I found food to be a comfort and a glue. When the relationship ended Eating was not a priority and I was more relaxed. I am not sure if anyone else had this in their life. Now that I am single I just notice I binge at night a bit on snacks. It is strange though if she calls me I find myself reaching for some cheese to eat when we talk. I am not looking for a therapist just wonder if arguments lead to appetite issues? emoticon

Hello everyone!
We just moved to Naperville from Dayton, Oh. I'm Janya, 25 year old stay-at-home mom. My baby is 8 weeks old now. I'm working on getting back to my prepregnancy weight and I have 50 pounds to go. I live close to Iroquois and Ogden. I'm glad to join Naperville team. emoticon

Hi everyone-

Just wanted to introduce myself to the team- I'm Bri, 26 years old, and I'm living in Plainfield (about a mile south of Naperville, so that's close enough, right?). The husband and I just moved here in June after growing up around the Shorewood/Channahon area, and since we pretty much hang out in Naperville every weekend. I'm excited to be part of a geographic team, my other teams are based on goals and events in your life, so this will be a nice change up :)

Anyways, hi!

Bri
aka Star of d00m

Hi All -
I'm Jen, new to this team and SparkPeople. This week is my first - hoping to drop 10 more pounds before my wedding in June. I know it's hard work ahead, but I'm hoping to do more than just lose weight - I want to make sure that I can change my lifestyle for good. Good luck to everyone!

HI, just started today tracking. So happy to find out about this site! So far it was a great day with food choices. I live in north Naperville. I was introduced to this site at work. We are having a Biggest Loser challage with teams. It's nice, no one or team will be eliminated, but one team will win after 3 months. We weight in every week (privately). My work is promoting healthy living.
Hope to get even more support here!
JT

New girl here, excited to get back to my high school athletics weight of 130. I'm Anastasia, a young college student and engaged to married, so now's the time. I have approx. 45 pounds to lose, and my goal is the end of November, so fingers crossed, my favorite running shoes on, and hopefully the best wishes and encouragement of SP friends along the way!

Hello All! I joined SparkPeople quite a while ago, but only in the last month or two have I really started to reliably use it. Now I'm trying to make the most out of this community and it would be great to be able to get together with some local Sparkers! I live in Yorkville, but I work in Naperville and am working on my master's degree here, so I feel like I should belong with the Naperville Sparkers! During the winter I run on a treadmill and work on weight training, but during the warmer months I love to go explore the forrest preserves around here either jogging or biking.

Hi there, I live in south Naper and work in Chicago, so take the train every day. I have started using the Y on 95th Street though. I just paid for 24 personal training sessions and signed up for a Pilates reformer class on Saturdays there. Let me know if any of this group decides to get together!

It may be a bit out of the way, but The Bike Rack in St. Charles is a *fabulous* shop to go to if you're looking for a bike -- they stock primarily Trek products, but a broad selection and very helpful staff there.

This isn't really the place to talk about other bike shops in the area, but if you're ever up for a ride around Naperville, let me know!

Hey, Happyalisa, it's a pleasure to see you've joined us! We haven't done any group challenges that I am aware of in the last little while, but that doesn't mean we're not ready to try them out -- I bet plenty would be willing to get involved!

Hi, I recently moved to Aurora. Yesterday I read about July's leader of the month (from MN)... and it inspired me to join a local group.
I'm still kind of learning the SP site (there's so much!). I see you guys do some outings, do you have any group challenges?

Hello, welcome to the group!

There is a fantastic bicycle shop on Main St. in Oswego called Mill Race Cyclery. The owner spent a lot of time helping me find just the right bike for me. It will cost more than Costco or Target, but you'll get a quality bike that will last a lot longer. Also, if you have any problems of questions about the bike, the staff is always helpful, and will do small little fixes for free. Usually they offer a free Spring tune-up as well. Hope that helps.

-Katrina

hi everyone, i stumbled upon this site through google looking for boston market chicken sandwich nutritional information (it tasted so good and i wondered if it was terrible for me calorie wise but it wasn't). this is a neat site and looks like a great support group. i'm in south naperville (95/59) and i'm usually out and about with my dog, if anyone wants to walk together on a set schedule let me know! also i'm looking for a place to buy a nice bike, i looked around at costco and target and they were crappy. any suggestions?

Hi everyone, I'd like to introduce myself...
My name is Darlene and I live in Bolingbrook. I see that you got together at the Patio restaurant, that is located about 2-3 miles from my house. I am 52 yrs. old, married and became a grandmother this year.
I lost 23 lbs. through Jenny Craig and working out at Lifetime Fitness, that was all last year, this year I've just fallen apart and I can't seem to stick to the JC diet or exercise like I did before. In fact today I went to Lifetime and cancelled my membership. I lost my workout buddy and they changed their class schedule to mostly yoga, which is ok but I like to burn calories in my workouts. My plan is to spend the money on buying some workout videos and start doing them.

Thanks for the words of encouragement. It is most appreciated.

As for the 7th of September, I'm not sure if I can work it out. With school starting and helping out and my husband's work schedule, I will have to see. I will let you know. Thanks so much for the invitation!

Have a wonderful day.

Dana

Hi Everyone,
I'm from Plainfield but Naperville is just the next town north of me, so I thought I could make some friends here. I'm excited about all that Spark People has to offer. I've alredy met one friend in person when she asked me about line dancing. Now she takes lessons with me.

Hey all...

I'm Josie and I wanted to introduce myself. I'm from Plainfield (almost in Naperville), but I grew up in Wheaton and went to college at North Central College (right in the heart of downtown Naperville emoticon ). I'm 29 years old and I teach music in the Plainfield area. I'm currently trying to lose weight...65 pounds by next February.

Anyhoo...I just wanted to poke my head in!

I look forward to meeting all of you!

Hugs, Josie
