I'm a noob to the team! I joined Sparkpeople last year and successfully lost 35 pounds, but have 20 more to go and decided to utilize the social aspects of the site this year. I live near the Somerville area, and am a runner and a vegetarian. :-) Looking forward to discussions!

Hi. I'm new to the page. I have lost weight before but I have gotten way off track. I really want to get healthy and make it stick this time. I am glad to meet all of you.

Hi All! I live in Hyde Park and work in the South End. Glad to connect with other local Sparkpeople. Winter's always a tough time to eat right and get exercise around here, so I'm hopeful that we can keep each other motivated to keep working towards our goals.

Hi everyone,

I just moved to Boston about a month ago and I LOVE it here! I feel like I'm starting a new chapter with a new job in a new city so I'm ready to start a new healthy lifestyle to go with it. After battling an eating disorder through college and rebelling against that restrictive behavior while living in Germany, the land of sausage and chocolate, my body has been through a lot and I'm really excited to start treating it well. :) Thanks for the support! It's great to know there are other women around me going through the same things!

Hi fellow SparkBoston teamates! I'm Jackie, 30, and I live in Brookline. I'm fairly new to getting involved in the SP community, but loving every second of it!! I teach Zumba in Dorchester at LFC for women on Morrissey Blvd. I would love to have my fellow Sparkers come and shake it with me. I always have free class passes for your first class. I teach Mondays at 6:30pm (which is tonight!). The ladies are amazing and very welcoming. I was telling them about SP last week! Hope to see at least one of you there at some point.

Happy Sparking!

Hello all! I'm Kirsten and just joined. I'm a life-long Bostonian and I'm here because I've got a lot of health and fitness to gain and a lot of weight to lose and know this is a great community to give and receive encouragement and advice.

I've lost 41 pounds since January and have about 124 left to go. Walking 24 to 40 miles a week and taking the T is what I do for exercise. And if you think taking the T isnt exercise, you probably dont catch the Green and Red Line during rush hour! :-)

Cheers!

Hi there! I'm Amy and I live in Brookline. I am a SAHM and have two little boys, 6 1/2 y.o. and 10 m.o. I lost about 12 pounds using SP back in 2010 before getting pregnant with baby #2. I love the website and all the tools! Now I'm trying to lose the rest of the baby weight and am looking for some like minded folks in the area. I hope to meet some local sparkers here!
Cheers,
Amy

Hi!

I'm William. I live and work in Boston. I managed to lose about 25 lbs over the summer but slacked off a bit in the Fall. My nutritionist recommended SP as a way to get back in the spirit of things and I hope it'll do the trick. I look forward to getting to know you all better as the year progresses and wish you the best in your own fight for fitness!

Hi Sparkies,

I'm back on sparkpeople after being gone for about a year and thinking I could keep losing without support. Instead I gained it all back plus 6 lbs so this time I'm reaching out even more than before!

Wishing you all wicked good luck in 2012! emoticon

Hello. I'm Krista and am new to Massachusetts. I live in Foxboro (Go Pats) as of 2 months ago. So many changes all at once means I've let go of things a bit with my weight. I had been doing pretty good, but still have a long way to go! When I first lost about 40 pounds a couple years ago I used Spark People to track my food. I decided to get back on here since I'm getting serious about it again. So Hi!

Hi, my name is Darcy and I live in East Boston. I just started using Spark People this week. Logging meals and workouts has been keeping me honest and making me more conscious of how I'm eating. I hope I can stick with it! I typically work out five mornings a week at the gym; running, strength training and yoga are my favorite activities. It's nice to see so many people from the area on here. Best of luck to everyone here in pursuit of their goals!

Hi everyone! I'm a relatively new Sparker (joined in May) and am always looking for new local buddies to help stay motivated on my fitness goals. I have quite a bit to lose and have done pretty good so far. Looking forward to continuing to stay active and reaching my goal. I've started running, just completed my first 5K last week and look forward to more! Im in Everett and would always love to meet up with fellow Spark people for a run or workout! Contact me!

Hi! I am new to this. I gained nearly 40 lbs in the last 16 years and have finally committed to getting my self back in shape so I can enjoy doing things with my family and not feel so self concious about the way I look. I live in Newtonville and work in Brighton. I started dieting about 3 weeks ago and have already lost 7.4 lbs (3.4 since joing SparkPeople).

Been around spark a while, just realized there was a Boston team so I figured I'd join, though, I'm a bit outside of Boston up in Lowell. Anyway, I figured it would be good to get onto another local team, so here I am...

Hi, I'm new to SparkPeople. I heard about it from my sister - in England! I am currently a member of Weight Watchers online but I'd like to find somewhere that motivates me and doesn't cost me every month! I'm not a biker or a runner but I would walk everywhere if I could. I'm looking forward to losing the weight but also the community!

Hello,
I am new to Spark People, but very excited to start my journey. I just moved to Brighton this fall when I landed my first "real" job. I sit in a cubical all day and find it hard to get motivated when I get out work. I am very excited to back in shape, and will the warm weather coming hopefully get back to bike riding. This is my first day but it certainly won't be my last! :)

Hi, everyone!

I am not new to Sparkpeople, but new to the message boards. I've been doing Weight Watchers for a loooong time (4 years), and have lost 75 pounds, but have not yet achieved a healthy body weight. Looking for new environments and friends to chat with to get me the last 25 pounds to my goal weight.

I work in town and live in the burbs, work out in various Boston Sports Clubs all over the place. Any other BSC members on board?

Hey Amber - a great place to walk in Dorchester/ Southie is along the beach from Carson to the sugarbowl. I have logged literally 100's of miles over there in the last 2 years.

I'm finishing up a masters at Suffolk (just one more class!!!) and looking for a job. I've been in the area for most of the past 7 years, so if anyone is new and has questions, I'd be glad to help. Good luck meeting your goals!

My name is Caitlin and I heard about this website from a friend, so I decided to give it a shot. I'm currently an undergraduate at Northeastern University and I've been struggling with my weight for what seems like forever. I really, really want a buddy to keep me motivated and vice versa! I'm very new to this whole website so I guess message me or add me? Good Luck to everyone with their goals!

Hi Cook Kids,
I live in Boston (Dorchester) and I'm currently getting a Masters in Expressive Therapy. I recently started getting active again with:
Work out DVDs - cardio and strength training
Yoga at an awesome studio in Southie
I will soon be adding a regular walking routine. There are some cool routes in Dorchester and Southie that I like.

I am a fan of sci-fi tv particularly the Doctor Who franchise - Doctor who (classic and new), Torchwood, and Sarah Jane Adventures.

I like getting out and about to do nerd things like karaoke or pub trivia if people are ever down for that so drop me a line.

Rock on,
Amber P.

Hello! I'm finally getting involved with Sparkpeople after just checking in every once in a while. I'm from NJ, but have lived in the Boston area since 2004, most recently in Allston. Since April I've been a civilian contractor in Afghanistan and have put on a few more pounds. I'd like to come back in April 2011 as the sassy and energetic girl my boyfriend met 3 years ago.

Hi, all!

I currently live in Brighton with my husband and two cats. :) I joined Spark after hearing about it on a few Weight Watchers boards. I'm hoping this will help jump-start my weight loss some more.

Thanks,

emoticon Maureen! My family lived in Reading when I was a baby. We're all a bit scattered now, I'm in Central MA North of Worcester. Way to go on losing the 90 lbs! That's fantastic! I've been on since February and now have about 80 left to lose. It's a long road, but I agree, this is the best tool out there for the journey. Look forward to Sparking with you.

Hi everyone! I'm Maureen. Good to find you all here at Sparkpeople. I live in Reading, but work in Boston. Have been using this great website to help me keep off the 90lbs I worked so hard to lose about three years ago. Have to admit - it's the best there is out there!

Hi all! I'm Dena. I'm 25, getting married in May (yikes only eight more months), and I've lived in Brighton for the past year, when I moved here from Michigan. I've been on Sparkpeople for a while but have only been lurking here and there... and after being entirely lazy for the past, oh, five months or so, I'm trying to give this whole weight loss thing the old college try. Handy, because I just started grad school which means I now have access to the school fitness center! Yay!

Fairly new at spark I re-started few days ago even though I heard about it for the 1st time few years ago.
I am living in Boston + South shore.
I have been using Spark for few days by now and enjoy it already even though it is still a little overwhelming at times.
In fact so many great people + teams and best of all great stories that i do not know where to start.
I am lucky to have meet a gf already and I am excited to meet some more + The cherry on the cake some exercise partner. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I wish everyone a good day and let's be generous what the heck ..loll A good week.
That is what we call generosity baby. emoticon

Hi Nicole (KnitKitty)! Super Fitness is a great low cost place. The trainers are pretty nice. I live near Brighton, lower Allston. I like to knit too but haven't in a few years. Would love to walk along the Charles sometime.

Hi,
I live in Lower Allston. Would love a walking buddy. I just had surgery so that's all I can do the next 2 months. I also have a 9 month old son so it would be cool to connect with fellow Boston mothers. I gained a ton of weight from my back injury and now I'm trying to get back to myself again. Best of luck everyone!

Hey! I'm a college student in downtown Boston who's looking forward to getting back in shape this spring. I'm not necessarily looking to lose quite a bit of weight, more just about getting toned for me. Can't wait till it's warm and I can go for long walks along the Charles!

Hello everyone, I'm glad to be back to SparkPeople! I first joined in 2007 and the site and people helped me loose 10 pounds, but then I lost momentum. Since then, I've gained 22 pounds and can't believe I let myself gain so much weight and eat uncontrollably. I'm dedicated this time and won't let myself get this high again, unless it's all muscle. I'm trying to lose 30 pounds and then get toned and muscular.

Hello everyone,
I'm Kelley, I have lived in Boston my whole life (I love it here). I've just joined SPARKPEOPLE. I'm really hoping that it helps me find the motivation to keep bettering myself. Sometimes I forget, in the middle of everything else I have to do, to take care of myself.
I love to excercise, but I find myself making excuses (usually time, kids, work, school...) and then feeling guilty.
I will be looking for LOTS of suppport and the occasional "stop wallowing and get off the couch!"

Hi, I'm Nicole and I'm new to SparkPeople. I just found it today, actually. It seems really neat. I've lived in Boston and Sommerville for the past five years and I currently reside in Brighton. I love to run (although the weather makes me want to stay inside...), knit, do yoga, and walk around the city. Today I received a gym membership ad from Super Fitness in Watertown, has anyone used this place before? They have a great deal that I may take advantage of. Cheers!

I have never been there, but I hear GREAT things about Boston Body Pilates, which is in the Back Bay, but I hear it's pricey. It might be worth checking out, I don't know what your price range is and how many times/wk you want to go.

Hi! I'm Elizabeth. I've been living in Boston on and off for 7 years. I'm originally from Florida. I've been on Spark on and off for 2 years, but I've just now started using the teams. I was wondering if anyone knew of a pilates studio that is good and somewhat reasonably priced? I live near Boston College, so that area is idea, but I have a car and a T pass (but I'm not going halfway across the state lol). Thanks!

Hi Everyone,

I realized that I have not introduced myself here. I'm fairly new to SP but have lived in Boston for 6 years now (originally from MI).

I have 25 more lbs to go to reach my goal. I've reached sort of a standstill with my weight loss, so I joined SP because I realize what I really need is support!

Welcome to the team Bethany. i am a huge fan of walking along the charles. i spent most of the summer taking a route that would bring me along the charles from the esplanade to the mass ave bridge. lately i have been walking along the mass ave bridge walking to and from central square or harvard to my home. I love seeing it all frozen over right now.

Hi Everyone,

I'm Apryl - MBA Student at BU, living in Brighton. I ran the Country Music Half Marathon in April of last year and then completely slacked off over the summer. I moved to Boston in August and have been so consumed with school that I haven't had any balance in my life - much less commitment to a healthy lifestyle.

I look forward to learning more!

hey all!! just joined this group. I'm Sasha, a senior at BC. Throughout the past 6+ months ive lost about 20 lbs. I want to ultimately lose 10-15 more by the graduation. I'm at 141.4 as of this morning and id love to be at 130 by spring break (february 26--- just booked Punta Cana!)

I also started training this week for the Boston Marathon which will take place April 19th. So far the most ive run is 4 miles, got the 6 miler on saturday so we'll see how that goes. I'm okay with the running so far but the aftermath---blisters n being sore sucks haha
